We confess we were secretly happy that the Wolf of Wall Street didn’t win any Oscars. We refused to see the movie because the idea of watchingLeonardo DiCaprio as a drugged up swindler living the high life at the devastating expense of others, was NOT appetizing. The whole idea of aggrandizing such a sleazy and revolting character seems WRONG. Now the guy who wrote the book and was played by Leo wants us to forgive him. Ex-convict Jordan Belfort told The Hollywood Reporter, “What I did was awful, but I was under the influence of massive quantities of drugs.”Sure, THAT explains it. Out of jail, con man Belfort says he redeemed himself and is now a “motivational speaker.”
