Director Martin Scorsese used his own drug past to help perfect Leonardo DiCaprio’s Quaalude-guzzling scene in The Wolf Of Wall Street, revealing he once took to pill for a plane flight.
In his acclaimed new movie, DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort character finds himself stuck at a country club when a body-paralysing drug high kicks in – and he has to drive his prized sports car home.
And Scorsese admits he was able to add a little insight to the hilarious scene.
He says, “I was actually prescribed a Quaalude for fear of flying… It was, like, a five hour flight and you took that pill and you didn’t care where you were.
“You wanted to hug everybody… and you were crying.”
