Trivia: The Wolf of Wall Street
  • Awesome, Dear Boy: Jonah Hill made only $60,000 (the lowest possible SAG-AFTRA rate) on the film; he simply wanted the opportunity to work with Martin Scorsese.
  • Fake American: The Australian Margot Robbie as Naomi (though Naomi is half British)
  • Fake Nationality: The French Jean Dujardin as a Swiss banker. Although considering that Switzerland is a multi-cultural nation with German, French, Austrian and Italian influences, it makes sense for a French man to pass as Swiss.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: DiCaprio is a nice person in real life, while Jordan is a corrupt stockbroker.
  • Playing Against Type: Leonardo DiCaprio usually plays brooding anti-heroes in dramas. Here, he plays a Villain Protagonist in a dark comedy. In his Golden Globe acceptance speech, he said "I never would've guessed that I would've won for Best Actor in a comedy". However, he's still playing the conman.
  • What Might Have Been:
    • Julie Andrews was offered the role that eventually went to Joanna Lumley.
    • Before Scorsese took the reigns as director, Ridley Scott was offered the project when it was to be made at Warner Bros.
