Leonardo DiCaprio is in Brazil for the soccer World Cup and ready to party just as hard as his character in The Wolf of Wall Street.

DiCaprio and 21 of his friends reportedly jetted into Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday and stayed on a mega-yacht ahead of the football extraveganza.

The Oscar-nominated star and his friends luxuriated on the Topaz, a 147m yacht that belonged to Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, the owner of Manchester City football club, the newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo reported.

The Topaz is the fifth-largest yacht in the world and bigger than all but one ship in the Brazilian navy, the aircraft carrier Sao Paulo, according to Folha.

DiCaprio was due to travel to Sao Paulo for this morning's opening match of the tournament between Brazil and Croatia.
