Wolf Of Wall Street Star Reveals Donald Trump Crashed Scorsese Movie Set

The Wolf of Wall Street star Cristin Milioti reveals Donald Trump crashed the set of the film in 2012 and acted like a "complete and utter buffoon." Released in 2013, The Wolf of Wall Street was directed by Martin Scorsese and based on Jordan Belfort's 2007 memoir of the same name. The film chronicles Belfort's rise from a small-time penny stock broker to the founder of his own Wall Street firm, Stratton Oakmont, which becomes plagued by rampant corruption and fraud, ultimately leading to his downfall.

Leonardo DiCaprio led The Wolf of Wall Street cast as Jordan Belfort alongside Cristin Milioti as his first wife, Teresa Petrillo, a humble hairdresser, and Margot Robbie as his second wife, the blonde bombshell Naomi Lapaglia. Early on in the film, Jordan begins cheating on his wife with Naomi. Teresa discovers the affair when she opens a limousine door and catches her husband in the act of snorting cocaine off Naomi's chest. Considering the scene was shot just outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, the cast and crew received a rather unsurprising visitor that day.

During a recent interview with The Independent, Milioti revealed that Donald Trump crashed the Wolf of Wall Street set in 2012. The Palm Springs star did not mince words, saying the then-future president behaved like "a complete and utter buffoon." Read what she said below:

Ugh. [Milioti sighs] He crashed the set and he was a complete and utter buffoon, as we all know.

Milioti was relatively tight-lipped about the situation since she clearly didn't want to give Trump any more attention than she had to. However, in his 2019 memoir Life in Movies: Stories from 50 Years in HollywoodWolf of Wall Street executive producer Irwin Winkler revealed more details about the interaction. Winkler claims Trump crashed the set hoping to receive a role in the film, though he didn't want it to be merely a walk-on part. Neither Milioti nor Winkler disclosed any more details than that, though Trump's wishes ultimately went unfulfilled.

Trump has a long history of appearing as himself in many New York-based movies and TV shows, including Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Zoolander, Sex and the City, and even 2010's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. However, as Milioti says, it was quite foolish for the former president to crash The Wolf of Wall Street set and expect to be granted a part on the spot. Scorsese is an auteur known for his meticulous filmmaking style, so there's little to no chance he would have allowed a celebrity to waltz onto his set and talk their way into an impromptu part.
