An Amazing Wolf of Wall Street Reunion Happened with Leonardo DiCaprio and Wine
Wolf of Wall Street may have hit theaters almost three years ago, but it's as if no time has passed between two of the movie's stars and their director. On Wednesday Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Martin Scorsese reunited at N.Y.C.'s Cipriani Wall Street (how appropriate) for a Friars Club event honoring the director with a well deserved Entertainment Icon Award.
The three stars looked dapper in black tuxes and shared laughs as they raised glasses inside the restaurant, where the director was joined by his closest friends and colleagues and received the prestigious award.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Friars club executive director Michael Gyure explained at the event that the decision to present the director with the award came from not only "his hard work, artistry and incredible gift of storytelling [that] has almost single-handedly redefined the way we see movies" but also his "dedication to humanitarian endeavors."
"As [the Club is] proudly committed to helping others through our scholarship programs, we are proud to honor those in the entertainment industry who reflect the same ideals, and Martin Scorsese is indeed a most deserving honoree," he said.
Olivia Wilde, who worked with Scorsese on the HBO series Vinyl, gave a speech at the event honoring the director. Plenty of other famous faces showed up for the icon, including Jerry Lewis, Sacha Baron Cohen, Juliette Lewis, Larry King, Kat Graham, Robert De Niro, Elvis Costello, and Sir Ben Kingsley.
