Leonardo Di Caprio has revealed that he was nearly attacked by a great white shark during an underwater expedition in 2006.
The incident occurred when Di Caprio was filming for the movie Blood Diamond in Cape Town, South Africa.
Revealing all to Ellen De Generes, Leo said, “I had a huge fear of sharks and when I did Blood Diamond in 2006 I actually got stuck in a cage with a great white, which was awesome”.
The actor, who is currently promoting the highly anticipated The Wolf of Wall Street, explained just how he survived the ordeal; “It went into the cage with me and half of its body was in and out. And I flattened down at the bottom and it was this far away and it chomped a few times. But I survived it.”
And we’re very glad you did.
