Leonardo DiCaprio recreated a famous and iconic scene from the blockbuster “Titanic” with Jonah Hill on “Saturday Night Live.”
Hill, who was hosting the show for the third time on Saturday, was later accompanied by “The Wolf of Wall Street” co-star, DiCaprio, whose appearance seemed to take the audience and the host by surprise.
DiCaprio and Hill enacted the famous “Titanic” scene that featured Kate Winslet, after Hill told his co-star: “Remember when we were on set and I'd get really nervous? Can we do the thing that we did every time? The thing that made me feel safe.”
DiCaprio embraced Hill from behind, with Hill spreading his arms, while the music to Celine Dion's “My Heart Will Go On” played in the background. Hill had begun the show by saying that DiCaprio wasn’t Martin Scorsese’s first choice for “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
He reportedly said: “I call up Marty Scorsese, I say, ‘Marty its JH. I'm ready to get in the ring together.’ He says, ‘Finally.’” He added: “Then I say, ‘Should we get DiCaprio on board?’ And Marty says, ‘I don't know if he can handle it. Sure he's a movie star and puts teenage girls in the seats. But we need a real actor like you.’”

The bit goes on with Hill trying to go back on the statement with DiCaprio's sudden appearance.
“Jonah, I knew this was going to happen if you got nominated,” DiCaprio says. “You don't have to pretend anymore. You're a real actor now. You should be humble. You should be gracious.”
However, according to reports, despite DiCaprio’s appearance on the show, the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live” had a lower rating compared to the episode hosted by Canadian artist, Drake.
