Leonardo DiCaprio, 41, Is About extraordinary Experiences.
The Titanic actor has a new documentary on environmental change, "Before the Flood," and Fisher Stevens who is the film director, as of late recounted the tale of how DiCaprio almost passed away in 2010 before work on the doc even started.
"The second time we properly hung out together was in 2010 when I was invited to film [oceanographer] Sylvia Earle for a TED conference expedition to the Galapagos. Leo was on the expedition," Stevens recalls to GQ. "I was filming Sylvia and I had this little easy camera to shoot underwater, and he was Sylvia's diving buddy, so I said, 'Would you film Sylvia?' And he said, 'Yeah I love it man, I love it.'"
Just, things turned out badly when DiCaprio's oxygen tank started to spill.
"I was diving buddies with Edward Norton. So we go down and we see 300 Eagle Rays and Spotted Rays and it was an amazing dive," Stevens adds. "Leo bolts away with Sylvia, and Edward goes in front of me and the next thing I know after twenty minutes, I'd lost them all. Then, I see Leo barely breathing, because Leo's tank was leaking oxygen, and Edward had to save him!"
"It was pretty crazy," he concedes. "But he actually did get some film for me and it was good for a second, and then it got pretty shaky when he couldn't breathe. But, we really bonded on that trip."
This, obviously, isn't the first time The Wolf Of Wall Street has confronted a near-death experience. An awesome white shark once bounced into his cage in South Africa, which DiCaprio told Wired he was briefed hadn't transpired in 30 years. He also shared that amid a flight to Russia, a motor exploded before his eyes, forcing the plane to do an emergency landing. In January, he went into detail about his unnerving experience skydiving to Ellen DeGeneres.
"When both of your parachutes don't open, you tend to not want to repeat something like that," he joked. "I jumped out of the airplane and my first [parachute] didn't open. It's tandem, so somebody's on your back, and they cut that line. We started free falling towards earth. And that's when you get the 8x10 glossies of your whole life flashing before your eyes."
"Then the second one was tangled as well, and I saw all of my friends sort of popping off with their parachutes, and I'm still plummeting toward planet Earth," he continued. "And then that was tangled for about a good, I don't know, 20, 30 seconds. Then he untangled it and he told me, 'Oh, you're probably going to break your legs now because we're going too fast.' So it was one of the worst experiences of my life and I'll never do it again."
The Oscar-winning on-screen character likewise notably suffered over his craft in 2015's "The Revenant."
"[I was] enduring freezing cold and possible hypothermia constantly,"the Inception star recalled to Yahoo! Films. "I certainly don't eat raw bison liver on a regular basis."
"I can name 30 or 40 sequences that were some of the most difficult things I've ever had to do," he included. "Whether it's going in and out of frozen rivers, or sleeping in animal carcasses, or what I ate on set."
Tiger Woods doesn't regret his ex-wife Elin Nordegren
American professional golfer has one regret, and it's not the 2009 extramarital scandal that prompted the end of his marriage to Elin Nordegren.
The 40-year-old who is believed by many to be among the most successful golfers of all time uncovered the one thing that he wishes he could've changed, amid 60 minutes in interview with Charlie Rose on Thursday.
"The only regret I have in life is not spending another year at Stanford [University]," Woods told Rose. "I wish I would've had one more year."
Apparently astonished by his reply, Rose endeavored to get more out of Woods.
"That's the only regret? Of all the things that happened to you?," Rose inquired.
Woods reaffirmed his initial answer, before talking about his 2010 separation from Nordegren.
"All the things I've been through, yes. They've been tough, but they've been great for me," Woods said adding, "But I wish I would've gone one more year at Standford."
In spite of not lamenting his infidelity, Woods stated that the experience was "unpleasant to experience,"rough to go through," and called Nordegren one of his " best friends.
He went ahead to share how he has disclosed the separation to their children, Sam, 9, and Charlie, 7.
"It's because daddy made some mistakes," Woods said of talking with his boy and girl. "Daddy made some mistakes and I'd much rather have them hear it from me."
Whenever inquired as to whether he had said to his kids, "I regret what I did," Woods cleared up that he didn't use those exact words.
"No, no, I haven't said that," he clarified. "I've said, 'everybody makes mistakes, and the reason why mommy's living in her house and daddy's living in his house is because daddy made mistakes, and it's okay."
Three years after his divorce was concluded, Woods started dating Olympic skier Lindsay Von. While the couple split in 2015, Vonn as of late conceded that despite everything she loves Woods.
