It's good to be the president. According to Showbiz411's Roger Friedman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese delivered Barack Obama a DVD copy of their newest film, "The Wolf of Wall Street."
Per Friedman, DiCaprio and Scorsese flew down to Washington DC on Wednesday to visit with Obama and get him the screener. HuffPost Entertainment contacted representatives for Scorsese to confirm or deny Friedman's report; this post will be updated if and when they respond.
Hollywood has had quite an infatuation with Obama in recent years. In the last two years, films such as "Lincoln" and "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" have screened at the president's residence. In November, The Hollywood Reporter published a story that claimed the White House was going to limit its screenings for the rest of the year, however a White House spokeswoman denied that claim. "The White House enjoys the opportunity to screen movies and will continue that tradition," she wrote in an email to EW.com. "Any reports to the contrary are not accurate."
Directed by Scorsese, "The Wolf of Wall Street" is one of the year's most explicit films (earlier reports indicated that it flirted with earning an NC-17 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America before securing an R). The feature arrives in theaters for regular folk to see on Dec. 25.
