I nearly died more than once: Leonardo DiCaprio

Superstar Leonardo DiCaprio has had more than a few near-death experiences.


The actor, 41, said he came face-to-face with a shark and was on a plane while it malfunctioned, reported Fox news.

“If a cat has nine lives, I think I’ve used a few,” DiCaprio said.

The star recalled when a great white shark “took about five or six snaps an arm’s length away from my head.”

“A great white jumped into my cage when I was diving in South Africa,” he said.

“Half its body was in the cage, and it was snapping at me.”

DiCaprio also revealed he was once on a flight to Russia that made an emergency landing in New York after an engine malfunction.

“I was sitting there looking out at the wing, and the entire wing exploded in a fireball,” he said.
