Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed he didn't mind showing some skin in The Wolf Of Wall Street.

The Oscar-nominated actor, who bares his bottom in Martin Scorsese's financial drama, admitted he wasn't fazed by the screen nudity.

"I really didn't think about it much, because I felt like I was trying to accurately portray what this guy's life was like and all that stuff came with it and all of it really happened," he told Access Hollywood.

Leonardo got to meet the real New York stockbroker turned motivational speaker Jordan Belfort, who he portrays.

"I got to spend a lot of time with Jordan, the real person. I spent many months with him before the film even started and I spoke to him constantly while we were making the movie and he was incredibly honest about how hedonistic he was during that time period in his life and he pulled no punches," he explained.

The 39-year-old admitted that playing Jordan affected him.

"The character sort of took me over and that lifestyle on set, took me over, that mentality of giving into every possible temptation, once you get into that mind frame... the character sort of takes on a life of its own," he continued.

The Wolf Of Wall Street, which marks the fifth collaboration between Leonardo and filmmaker Martin, opens in the UK on January 17, 2014.
