Martin Scorsese was in good humor on January 6's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where he addressed the heated controversy surrounding his big-screen adaptation of Jordan Belfort's memoir, "The Wolf of Wall Street." The director told Kimmel's sidekick Guillermo that despite any reports to the contrary, no werewolves are to be found in the film.

Guillermo, who at first thought the film was called "The Lion and the Wardrobe," then went on to say: "Good luck in Hollywood. I wish you the best." Watch below.

The actual WOWS controversy, over whether or not Scorsese is glorifying Belfort's criminal behavior, wasn't addressed during the show. Our TOH! interview with Scorsese is here.
