Leonardo Dicaprio's home makes ''weird noises''.

The 39-year-old actor admits the last time he was ''truly terrified'' was when he was woken in the middle of the night by an odd sound coming from another room in his house.

However, the 'The Wolf of Wall Street' star doesn't think his abode is haunted because he doesn't believe in ghosts.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Lorraine', he said: ''My home makes weird noises at times and I have to get up in the middle of the night and check if there's somebody breaking in ... I don't know, it's like creaking or something, it's weird ghost noises but I don't believe in ghosts so ... it's like the wind or the way it was built.''

Leonardo then went on to say how he can always rely on his mother Irmelin to make him smile because she always appears to be mocking him in some way.

He explained: ''My friends make me laugh, my mother makes me laugh. They're just constantly ragging on me, they're constantly making fun of me. My mother says I should lay brick or something like that to, do something with my hands because I haven't been doing any manual labour ... my mother is insulting me all day long so she is the best.''
