Why all the naked women in Wolf of Wall Street didn't bother us

Leonardo DiCaprio was on the red carpet for the UK premiere of Wolf of Wall Street last night - in clothes. Unlike most of the women in the film.

Any time there's a new Leonardo DiCaprio film we get pretty excited and the stars were out in force for the UK premiere in London last night.

When someone showed us the first trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street we were sold.

Following the story of a frankly, selfish, money hungry stockbroker, we see Leo take on the role of Jordan Belfort.

Not one for the faint hearted, this film has a lot of three things: naked people, drugs and swearing.

We sense a very dangerous drinking game forming...

Thing is, in a lot of films, and of course in the music industry, the question of nudity is quite the contentious one.

And yet, watching this was strangely inoffensive.

By the end of the film you will be nigh on indifferent to the sight of boobs and muff. Yes, there are a lot of lady parts.

So why doesn't it offend in the same way as Miley on her Wrecking Ball?

Well, because this story is being told with the complete awareness that the world it is depicting is outrageous, unattractive and excessive to the point of disgusting.



Even Leonardo himself was anxious to explain that though all the nakedness was him, the debauchery was nothing like his hedonistic days of old.

He told Extra, "Please don't compare me with this dude at all! Are you out of your mind?"

Maybe that's the other reason, we love Leo and we know he's acting (kind of)...with Miley, we're not so sure.

With the recent focus on Amy Adams' boobs we're wondering, is Hollywood joining the music industry in its naked obsession? Tweet us @handbagcom



The Wolf of Wall Street is released in UK cinemas on 17th January 2014.
