USA TODAY - Home renovations can be hazardous to your health.

At least, they were for Leo DiCaprio. The Oscar-nominated actor may play dissolute financier Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's splashy, sexy The Wolf of Wall Street, but that has nothing to do with why he's using a cane this Sunday in New York.

"I sprained it on the floorboard. I'm building up a little deck next door. I was showing the architect what I wanted done so I jumped through a floorboard and popped a couple of ligaments," shrugs DiCaprio, about his ankle injury.

The timing couldn't be worse -- his Golden Globe-nominated movie opens Dec. 25 and he has to promote it. But DiCaprio isn't fazed.

"It's not like I'm doing much of an action sequence except walking down a red carpet," he says.
