Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Leonardo DiCaprio (left) has re­vealed that he slept in an­i­mal car­casses and ate raw bi­son liver while mak­ing his new film, The Revenant. The 40-year-old ac­tor said he was pushed to the lim­its while film­ing the new movie, which sees him team up with Os­car-win­ning film­maker Ale­jan­dro Gon­za­lez Inar­ritu for the first time, re­ported Fe­male­first.

Not only did DiCaprio have to sleep in an­i­mal car­casses and eat raw bi­son live, but he says that he faced the pos­si­bil­ity of catch­ing hy­pother­mia on a con­stant ba­sis. “I can name 30 or 40 se­quences that were some of the most dif­fi­cult things I’ve ever had to do — whether it’s go­ing in and out of frozen rivers, or sleep­ing in an­i­mal car­casses, or what I ate on set. I was en­dur­ing freez­ing cold and pos­si­ble hy­pother­mia con­stantly,” the Ti­tanic star said. “I cer­tainly don’t eat raw bi­son liver on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. When you see the movie, you’ll see my re­ac­tion to it, be­cause Ale­jan­dro kept it in. It says it all. It was an in­stinc­tive re­ac­tion,” Leo added.
