Martin Scorsese sits down with O’Brien to promote his film Wolf of Wall Street. He talks about working with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, his experience with Quaaludes and his new way of navigating film sets.
Scorsese on his experience with drugs:
At that time, they were legal and I was actually prescribed a Quaalude for fear of flying. When you took this pill, it was like a five-hour flight, you took that pill, you didn’t care where you were.
