People seem to think that women can't be total dicks as well. Never understood that.
I just don't like how in the media if a woman character isn't like a Mary Sue doctor/philanthropist in a movie then someone always shouts sexism.

Just because women take of their clothes for guys with lots of money doesnt make them whores. Who are you to slut shame? Womens just gotta do what they gotta do.

It's adapted from a true story in an extremely lose way. LIke, the people actually existed. But it's basically fiction written around a true story.

None of us were there with Jordan Belfort living his life and witnessing what he did so no one knows how accurate or inaccurate the film is. For all we know the film might be painting a kinder portrait of all people involved.

I'm not saying any of your points are wrong, but you can't use "it's based on a true story" to defend or debase real people because the way the characters act is fictional. Better, worse, who the **** knows but this is fiction painted around a real story.

Well, that plate is real, but I think they have a plate like that ready to go for each actor. That way they can attach it to the award the night it is announced.
