Leonardo DiCaprio has described his latest collaboration with director Martin Scorsese, The Wolf Of Wall Street, as "very dear to my heart".

"This and The Aviator took eight years to get off the ground," he told BBC news at the UK premiere of the movie. "I'm just really thankful that we got the opportunity to do them."

The actor plays real-life swindling stockbroker Jordan Belfort in the film, a role which has already earned the actor a Bafta and Golden Globe nomination.

He talked to the BBC's Lizo Mzimba.
