LEONARDO DiCaprio narrowly escaped with his life after a shark-diving adventure turned extra-dangerous and left him fighting for survival in a cage with a hungry predator.
The actor decided to experience sharks up close and conquer his fear of the big fish during a day off from filming 2006 movie Blood Diamond, and it almost cost him his life.
He tells U.S. Tv host Ellen DeGeneres, "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.
"It was a gigantic great white... They actually said in 30 years this has never happened, but the tuna kind of got stuck on the top of the cage and the great white leapt out and tried to bite it and went into the cage with me.
"Half of its body was in and (half was) out, and I flattened down at the bottom... It chomped a few times but I survived it... It was absolutely terrifying."
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
