In the Wolf of Wall Street Leonardo had to play a
character who used drugs. However Dicaprio says he has never
touched such things.
He never did drugs because he had already dealt with it when he
was very young. He remembers that, in Hollywood, he went to parties and there were drugs and it was tempting.
He considers it´s hard to be an actor and be criticised at a young age when you´re formulating who you are, and unfortunatly there´s a lot of people that fall victim of that.
