Washington, Sept 8 : Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed that a torture scene in his new political thriller 'Body Of Lies' left him ill for days.
The Titanic star, who plays a CIA operative alongside Russell Crowe in the film, prepared for the scene in a former Moroccan jail for months.
However, he had no idea the intensity of the shoot would leave him drained and sick.
"We did that (scene) in the middle of some medieval torture tomb. There was some kind of horrific dust in the air," Contactmusic quoted DiCaprio, as saying.
"I got sick for two or three days afterward because of the intense energy it took," he added.
