Cristin Milioti on Working with Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’

cristin-milioti-how-i-met-your-motherCristin Milioti has a major role as Leonardo DiCaprio‘s wife in Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming film The Wolf of Wall Street, but if you’re a fan of her from Broadway’s Once and TV’s How I Met Your Mother, don’t expect to recognize her.

Milioti reveals to The Wall Street Journal that her character is virtually unrecognizable from her real self.  She explains, “I’ve got this really thick accent and huge perm, acrylic nails and jeans up to my second rib. She’s a tough cookie but she loves him and believes in him, which is what makes it so painful. She’s put all her beliefs and love in him. But what happens when you’re not enough? It’s a very sad role.”

However, she says the transformation was all worth it to work with DiCaprio.  She says, “He’s so lovely. We had this one scene that was very emotional and I was having trouble finding a way into it. We were doing it over and over and it was outside and there were people everywhere. I was getting really frustrated and he sat down with me and we had a heart to heart. He gave me this incredible pep talk and said ‘we can stay here all night and get this.’ He told me ‘I’m here for you, I believe in you.'”

Well, who knew DiCaprio was such a good sport?
