The Wolf of Wall Street’s ex-wife is spilling tea — but not a drop of wine.
Nadine Macaluso, who was married to fraudster Jordan Belfort for 14 years and was later played by Margot Robbie in the 2013 movie, has been using her popular TikTok account to dish about her failed first marriage and the accuracy of Martin Scorsese’s Hollywood film.
Some onscreen story elements were embellished for dramatic effect, of course, but one is remarkably spot-on.
In a recent post that’s so far been liked more than 5,700 times, the therapist and marriage counselor confirmed that an odd detail of the Leonardo DiCaprio drama is totally true — Macaluso really drinks her red wine through a straw.
During a scene in the Oscar-nominated film, DiCaprio, as Belfort, and Robbie are sitting at a table in a restaurant when she calls to the waiter and asks, “Can I get a straw please?”
“I don’t want to ruin my veneers and it works,” Macaluso, 55, says in the TikTok video. “It keeps them white.”
In a previous post, Macaluso, who shares two children with her ex-husband, admitted to being terrified in the early 2010s that the trauma of her relationship was being put up on the big screen.
Besides his financial improprieties, Belfort, now 61, cheated on his young wife and was an unpredictable drug addict.
“I was mortified,” she said. “I had already lived this complete Greek tragedy and then it was going to be splashed all over the world. My trauma for the world to see.”
But, she added, “All of a sudden, I realized it was going to happen and it was bigger than me… And, ironically what happened was in my therapy practice, people said to me, ‘Wait, I want to come see you as a therapist because you went through that and you got over here and this is the life that you lead, you walk your talk.’”
Nadine is now married to businessman John Macaluso, who has three children from a previous marriage, and lives in California.
