Jordan Belfort, the “real” Wolf of Wall Street
ON Sunday’s scene of 60 Minutes, Liz Hayes sat down with the genuine living-”Wolf of Wall Street”, Jordan Belfort.
In the touchy one-on-one, the previous stockbroker lost his temper and ended the meeting in a fury.
“I’ve said enough in regards to this current, we should proceed onward, since you’ve stonewalled me at each step!” Belfort woofed at Hayes.
“I’m finished with this, I’m not gonna get ambushed here — you’ve got a great deal of nerve kid, I’ll let you know!” he included, before storming out.
The shocked TV moderator asked: “Why wouldn’t i be able to pose these questions?”
Anyhow, what did Hayes ask to make Belfort split?
She asked: “The exact opposite thing is that you have an oral contract with your administration, the Fordham organization, is that an endeavor to conceal your pay?”
This tipped Belfort over the edge and he climbed from his seat, announcing: “I was told this was a pleasant, agreeable meeting. Nobody has treated me as rudely as you.”
Belfort in the end came back to the room, yet not before blaming Hayes for making “an ax showing” of the meeting.
“How about we attempt this once more, yet this time, simply be unbiased”.
Hayes later said she felt the inquiries she asked Belfort were “sensible”.
“About where he originated from, how did this all start, the amount cash did he make, what sort of life did he have at the time,” she said in an Extra Minutes cut. “At that point when I began to get some information about the exploited people and the reimbursement to those victimized people I felt a movement and I felt that Jordan Belfort was uncomfortable about that. I figure at last he simply got extremely furious with me, he felt I was being uncalled for and when I inquired as to whether he was attempting to shroud cash here in Australia, he exited.”
The prepared news person said its not so much a “great thing” when a subject exits of a meeting.
“Something’s happened, some person is not blissful ordinarily. For this situation, Jordan Belfort was extremely miserable and that was self-evident.
“Everything you can do truly is sit for a bit and see where it goes. At that point, Jordan Belfort returned and I think he presumably acknowledged it wasn’t a great look.”
Hayes portrayed him as a long way from beguiling.
“I’m anxious my experience with Jordan Belfort wasn’t one where I went away considering, ‘Great, there’s a beguiling man. Isn’t he loaded with moxy?’” Hayes said later. “I didn’t feel that way. No.”
Belfort, who was depicted by Leonardo Dicaprio in the Oscar-assigned film, The Wolf of Wall Street, used 22 months in jail for misrepresentation and IRS evasion, in the wake of ripping off moguls to the tune of more than $100 million dollars.
These days, The Wolf demands he’s a changed man and is coming to Australia to offer his story of recovery and the importance of morals all hands on deck, at high value workshops.
