"We made a stupid bet and I lost," the actor said. "The bet was Emily said something about Leonardo DiCaprio being 41. And I said, 'How dare you! And I said that cherub of a man, I think that was my quote that cherub of a talent can't be more than 28.'
The 36-year-old continued, “I said he's not over 40, was my thing. She said, 'If I'm right, you have to cook for me every Sunday. And if you're right, you get play Call of Duty once a week.' So I thought, 'Here we go! This is the good stuff.’”

Sadly for John, he lost the bet seeing as the Revenant star is over 40-years-old (Leo is in fact 41). Now the actor, who “just started cooking,” will be making up for lost time in the kitchen. He told the late night host, “It only took me 36 years to learn how to cook for myself.”
John and Emily, who are parents to daughter Hazel, welcomed their second child, Violet back in June. While on the show, the director admitted that his firstborn is "absolutely" enjoying having her sister around.
The proud dad noted, "I truly every single night say I can’t believe these two amazing girls are mine.”
