However, the experienced actor was prepared for the blows with a little trick to prevent the pain from spreading too much.

The truth is that DiCaprio’s commitment as an actor has been recorded on several occasions. One of them was on tape The returnWhere, in addition to enduring the extreme cold, he had to eat raw bison liver in front of the lens of director Alejandro González Iñárritu. Clay Landry, the film’s historical and survival consultant, said DiCaprio was initially supposed to eat artificial liver made from protein bars, but shortly before filming, they decided to use real liver.
Although the vast majority of people wouldn’t be willing to eat raw meat, for DiCaprio it was more of a challenge given that the 48-year-old actor is a vegetarian.

Furthermore, in this film, Leo ends up driving the director and his partner to despair. This is due to his insistence on improvising many of his scenes.
“Every now and then, Bob (Robert De Niro) and I would look at each other and roll our eyes a little bit. And we said (to DiCaprio): ‘You don’t need this dialogueScorsese revealed in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.
