Leonardo Dicaprio admits 'The Wolf of Wall Street' was like ''organised chaos''.

The 39-year-old actor was nominated for best actor at the BAFTAs last night (16.02.14) for his portrayal of Jordan Belfort in the comedy, but he believes the director Martin Scorsese helped him explore his role in-depth thanks to his choice of set.

He explained to the BBC: ''Martin Scorsese really created this set in a really specific way, it was like organised chaos. So we were all kind of living in a giant bosch painting. It was like the modern day Roman empire ... we wanted to make a portrait of our culture today. So it's really thanks to him and this character really took on the life of its own.''

The 'Titanic' star first worked with the renowned director on 'The Gangs of New York' followed by 'The Aviator', 'The Departed' and 'Shutter Island' but their relationship became even closer working on their latest project - which took them seven years to bring to the bring screen - but he wasn't expecting to be nominated for the award.

Speaking to E! on the red carpet at London's Royal Opera House, he said: ''I don't predict any of these things and have no idea what's going to happen, but to be here with a film like this that takes a lot of chances is an amazing feeling. This is really the second film in my career I got behind and did everything to get made.''
