Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed that he is absolutely terrified of sharks since a diving expedition in South Africa went horribly wrong.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ star recalled that he had a huge fear of sharks, and when he did ‘Blood Diamond’ in 2006, he actually got stuck in a cage with a gigantic great white, the Mirror reported.

The 39-year-old actor explained that the shark got stuck on top of the cage and went into the cage with him.

He continued saying that half of the shark’s body was in and out of the cage and he was flattened down at the bottom, and it chomped a few times but he survived the attack.

DiCaprio added that he will never do another diving expedition.
