Everyone’s favorite Oscar-less actor Leonardo DiCaprio just broke his losing nomination streak. Having been nominated for many different performances over the years, DiCaprio has finally actually won an award from the Academy, and it was well deserved. He has done a lot more than just be an internet joke for Oscar losses. He is known all over Hollywood for his dedication and crazy research antics for roles. He has had some elaborate and iconic roles, from Titanic to Wolf of Wall Street he has quite the acting range, and quite the talent to match.
He’s done it all, from love interest, to drugged out millionaire, to asylum patient, and the audience loves to watch him. But how many people actually know about the preparation he takes for these roles? The animals, the people, the foods, the stunts, the drugs (or lack there of) involved in getting that priceless screen performance. Here we have listed the most absurd, impressive and crazy things Leonardo DiCaprio has done to embody some of our favorite movie characters. I mean really, how many of us would do the things he does for a job?
10 He spent around seven hours a day in make up
9 He had lube-covered deli meat thrown at his face
8 He ate until he threw up
7 He lived with a man with OCD
6 He held an actual lit candle in his actual butt
5 He hunted with mercenaries
4 He spent time in freezing rivers
3 He slept inside a dead animal
2 He worked through the pain
1 He ate part of an animal raw
DiCaprio has had his moments with food, he ate the sushi and even tried to stuff himself with sweets to gain weight for roles, but the biggest food moment to demonstrate his commitment came yet again from The Revenant. In the film, he is shown eating raw bison liver, and when I say he is shown eating it, I mean it. DiCaprio actually ate the uncooked organ, and the shot made it into the final film. In his interview with Yahoo Movies, DiCaprio described his experience saying, "It says it all. It was an instinctive reaction.” Sounds to me like if he hadn’t gone the acting route, he could have really made a name for himself, and his antics, on perhaps Fear Factor.
