Leonardo DiCaprio’s new flick, The Wolf of Wall Street has come under some scrutiny for allegedly glamorizing and condoning Jordan Belfort’s Wall street crimes. Leo told Variety “This film may be misunderstood by some; I hope people understand we’re not condoning this behavior, that we’re indicting it. The book was a cautionary tale and if you sit through the end of the film, you’ll realize what we’re saying about these people and this world, because it’s an intoxicating one. I think it’s amazing somebody like Martin Scorsese is still making films that are vital and talked about, and have an element of controversy about them and are appealing to people of my generation. We grew up watching his films and he’s still making stuff that’s punk rock. It’s an amazing achievement.”

Leo is an actor who makes movies…its entertainment not a documentary! He really shouldn’t get blamed for the images in the movie…blame the real criminal Jordan Belfort who stole millions in a stock fraud in the 90s.
