Leonardo DiCaprio Reveals His Close Encounter With a Great White Shark

Posted on January 8, 2014

Leonardo DiCaprio was a guest on Ellen DeGeneres' show to talk about his film Wolf of Wall Street. Here Leo is talking about his environmental charity and his passion for saving animal life, in the oceans and on the land. When he was filming Blood Diamond he did a shark dive for charity. He was in a shark cage, but somehow the great white shark followed the tuna halfway into the shark cage. Leo says he was terrified, but pushed himself flat on the bottom of the cage while it snapped at him. He says he still wants to save sharks (90% of the shark population is gone from the oceans), but he never wants to do that again. Take a look:
