Real footage of the beach party from the Wolf of Wall Street shows how accurate the movie is

Real footage of the beach party from the Wolf of Wall Street shows how accurate the movie is

The 2013 Martin Scorsese hit has been a firm-favourite among movie buffs for over a decade

Hollywood has long been know to sometimes bend the truth, even when telling 'real life' stories, for the purpose of entertaining its viewers.

One blockbuster hit, however - which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year - has received global acclaim for its ability to been fans riveted by its jaw-dropping content, while also majorly following the true story on which it's based.

The star-studded movie - featuring the likes of Hollywood legends Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Jonah Hill - first premiered in cinemas back in 2013 and has remained a firm-favourite among movie buffs ever since.

We are, of course, talking about The Wolf of Wall Street.

And it's absolutely true - amid the drugs, sex and money laundering that make this black-crime comedy - which centres on the corrupt brokers working the New York stock market - so iconic, however, is that it is based on a true story.

There really was a former Wall Street mogul-turned financial criminal named Jordan Belfort, who pleaded guilty to fraud and related crimes in connection with stock manipulation.

Belfort was sentenced to four years in prison, though he only served 22 months.

And last year, a clip resurfaced of one of Belfort’s actual epic beach parties, which indicates just how accurate The Wolf of Wall Street film was.

Despite being released nearly 30 years later, Martin Scorsese's flick includes an insane amount of details from the actual beach party.

The movie version sees the fraudster standing on the balcony of a packed-out Westhampton beach house and giving one of his famous pep talks.

To an eager crowd, he screams: "We're going to take this company into the f***ing stratosphere."

Similarly, in the real footage, you can see Belfort standing on the balcony of his beachfront mansion and getting his guests riled up in similar fashion.

OK, so he's not screaming as enthusiastically as DiCaprio, and the quality of the recording is terrible - but the spirit and the setting are pretty damn close.

The clip was shared on the YouTube page Comp Guy, who wrote: "Here's the REAL Wolf of Wall Street Beach House party, from the summer of 1991.

"It was taken a few months BEFORE the infamous Forbes Magazine article."

They went on to explain that in 1990: "The Wolf hosts one of many of his parties at his Westhampton beach house. It is like a Great Gatsby party, where anyone good-looking can crash.

"Nadine and her companion drive up in a banana-yellow Ferrari. The Wolf is entranced."

The video description adds that someone began purposely masturbating in front of Nadine Macaluso - who in the movie is played by bombshell actor Margot Robbie (but under the name Naomi).

Speaking of the 'masturbating' moment, the scene was depicted in graphic detail in the film, showing Hill performing the lewd act in the middle of a party.

And as is said in the YouTube description, this actually happened in real life, something which was confirmed by Macaluso in a TikTok video.

"So you guys have been asking how did I meet Jordan, the Wolf of Wall Street," she said.

"Well, it's actually pretty similar to the movie. I was, I guess, 22 years old and modelling and my boyfriend at the time, said, 'You want to go to this party in Westhampton in this house on the beach?', and I was like, 'Sure'.

"And so we pulled up, and I remember walking into the house, and there were all these people acting really weird. Little did I know that they were all Quaaluded out, I had no idea."

Macaluso continued: "That scene where someone actually exposes himself to me was true. And I actually got terrified by that.

"I'm 22. And I said to my boyfriend at the time, 'We have to leave this party,' and we left right away."
