For the love of God, somebody give Daddy an Oscar so he can stop torturing himself on set. Actor and professional heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio describes the brutal behind-the-scenes conditions he faced while filming his new movie, The Revenant. (They were even worse than sharing a dressing room with Alan Thicke on Growing Pains.)
The epic film, coming out in December, depicts the true story of an early 19th century frontiersman who was buried alive after a vicious bear attack. It details what lengths a man will go to simply to survive in Hollywood without an Academy Award.
DiCaprio opened up to Yahoo! about the grueling conditions he endured while filming his movie. He had to be really cold and eat gross stuff! What the heck, give him his dang Oscar, this is getting ridiculous!
I can name 30 or 40 sequences that were some of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do. Whether it’s going in and out of frozen rivers, or sleeping in animal carcasses, or what I ate on set. [I was] enduring freezing cold and possible hypothermia constantly.
Sleeping in an animal carcass? Without any models? That's disgusting.

You don't have to do this, Leo. You're a winner no matter what! Also, sorry for thinking this was a totally sweet Legends of the Fall reboot.
