Real Wolf of Wall Street shows DiCaprio how he would have done 'I'm not f***ing leaving' speech

The Wolf of Wall Street is certainly regarded as an all-time classic by many millions, despite it only being a decade-old film.

Now, that has made us feel old - anyway, I digress.

But while Leonardo DiCaprio is pretty incredible in the 2013 favourite, the real 'Wolf of Wall Street' has shown how he would have done some of DiCaprio's most famed scenes and lines.

Unless you have been living completely under a rock, The Wolf of Wall Street is based on a real story as it follows the wild antics of real-life Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort.

Belfort's story himself is a petty remarkable one as he survived a real downfall as documented in The Wolf of Wall Street, which saw him serve time for fraud and money laundering.

But now, he's moved on from his controversial past and is a world-renowned motivational speaker, author and business consultant.

Obviously, he had none other than Leonardo DiCaprio play him in The Wolf of Wall Street, with the film's makers portraying their version of how they thought Belfort delivered certain lines.

DiCaprio delivers many famous lines in the film, with perhaps the most famous one being the 'I'm not f**king leaving' speech.

For old times sake, the speech in the film started: "You know, this f**king deal that I'm about to sign barring me from the securities industry, barring me from Stratton, my home.

"What the f**k is that, you know? I'll tell you what it is. It's... It's me taking no for an answer, you know.

"It's them... It's them selling me, not the other way around. It's me being a hypocrite is what it is."

Before the most famous part: "So... You know what? I'm not leaving.

"I'm not leaving. I'm not f**king leaving!"

The real Wolf of Wall Street did it slightly different though, as Belford documented himself on YouTube.

He started off the slightly altered version of the world-famous speech by telling Statton employees to never take no for an answer.

He then went on to say to never stop trading, and to keep "squeezing the f**king testicles of those dastardly short sellers until you get what you want."

Quite the statement, eh.

Belfort then goes on to describe Robin Hood as being a 'f*cking hypocrite', leaving all watching producing similar reactions to what was shown in the film.

Before a little more moaning, Belfort delivered the famous line in a more PG friendly way.

He simply said: "We're not leaving," as the audience applauded.
