Leonardo Dicaprio has revealed he was almost eaten by a Great White Shark after he got stuck in a cage with the watery predator.
“I had a huge fear of sharks,” he admitted on The Ellen Show, and while filming Blood Diamond in 2006, he went “scuba diving looking for sharks.”
“I actually got stuck in a cage with a Great White, which was awesome,” Leo revealed. “It was a gigantic Great White.”
Explaining how he ended up inside the cage with the fearsome fish, he said: “The tuna kinda got stuck on the top of the cage and the Great White leapt out and tried to bite it. It went into the cage with me and half of its body was in and out.”
“I flattened down at the bottom and it chomped a few times but I survived it,” the tasty actor laughed.
When host Ellen DeGeneres asked how he survived Leo replied, “I don’t know” before adding: “They actually said that in 30 years this has never happened.”
“It was absolutely terrifying.”
