The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Matthew McConaughey’s scenes were shot on the second week of filming. The chest-beating and humming performed were improvised and are part of an actual warm-up he performs before acting. Leonardo DiCaprio saw it during filming, and the brief shot of his turning away uneasily from the camera was actually his looking at Martin Scorsese for approval. DiCaprio encouraged the director to include it in the scene and later claimed it “set the tone” for the rest of the film.
