Leonardo DiCaprio on the Ellen Show 2014

About That Time Leonardo DiCaprio Had K-Y Jelly on His Face

Leonardo DiCaprio stopped by Ellen to promote his latest film, The Wolf of Wall Street, in an interview that airs on Tuesday. In the sit-down, Leo opened up about shooting one of the movie's most memorable scenes — hint: it involves Jonah Hill choking on ham — saying, "We were doing this CPR sequence, and we had to do 70 takes, because they couldn't get this ham to stick on my face. They had to put K-Y Jelly, and there's literally a guy there behind this giant window with a plastic spoon just flicking ham on my face all day long." Leo also went on to share a pretty intense story about that one time he was casually almost eaten by a shark. He explained that "it chomped a few times, but I survived it." You need to hear it to believe it, so watch this clip from Leo's interview with Ellen DeGeneres now.
