Martin Scorsese Clears Up Major Misconception of 'Wolf of Wall Street' on Kimmel (Video)

“No, there's no werewolves in the picture,” the director said

Martin Scorcese swung through “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday with Kimmel's sidekick, Guillermo, and cleared up a major misconception about his newest movie, “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

“No, there's no werewolves in the picture,” the filmmaker said after Guillermo repeatedly inquired about the mythical monster.
