Leonardo DiCaprio Kiss 'Just Had To Happen'

Joanna Lumley has told Sky News she made sure she had to do a few takes when it came to kissing Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street.

The British actress told Eamonn Holmes: "'It had to happen. It was pretty nice, you know. You know Leo and I just hanging out there.

"Had a bit of a kiss, had to do it again, because that's what you do in movies, had to go to several takes, because that's how it is, no real pain."

Lumley plays the aunt of DiCaprio's character's wife in the Oscar-nominated film about excess on Wall Street.

There is an awkward moment where the two share an ill-judged kiss on a bench in a London park.

Lumley said she told director Martin Scorsese: "Sorry Marty, can I have another go at that?" and then added that: "Leo might go, 'I think we could do that better'."

She said working with DiCaprio was "like being in heaven" and said: "He was adorable actually, he was the sweetest man you've ever met."

Lumley is also promoting Oxfam's 'Love Mum' campaign which helps mothers living in poverty across the world.
