DiCaprio received Brando's Oscar and other artefacts as his 38th birthday gift in 2012 from business associates at Red Granite Pictures, which also funded his film Wolf of Wall Street. The 42-year-old actor has voluntarily handed over the Oscar statuette and other expensive gifts amid an investigation into a USD 3.5-billion money-laundering scheme.
