Leonardo Got In Some REAL TROUBLE With A Great White Shark

Written by Outdoor Beasts Staff on December 15, 2015

He may or may not have been raped by a bear in his new movie, but Leonardo DiCaprio definitely got into some hot water in which a great white was circling.

Here’s what he told Wired magazine about his Great White encounter:

Leonardo Got In Some REAL TROUBLE With A Great White Shark

They leave the tops open and you have a regulator line running to the surface. Then they chum the water with tuna. A wave came and the tuna sort of flipped up into the air. A shark jumped up and grabbed the tuna, and half its body landed inside the cage with me. I sort of fell down to the bottom and tried to lie flat. The great white took about five or six snaps an arm’s length away from my head. The guys there said that has never happened in the 30 years they’d been doing it.’
