Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Died in the Galapagos and Had to Be Saved by Edward Norton


The 41-year-old on-screen character has another narrative on environmental change, Before the Flood, and the film’s executive, Fisher Stevens, as of late recounted the tale of how DiCaprio nearly kicked the bucket in 2010 preceding work on the doc even started.

“The second time we appropriately hung out together was in 2010 when I was welcome to film [oceanographer] Sylvia Earle for a TED meeting undertaking to the Galapagos. Leo was on the campaign,” Stevens reviews to GQ. “I was recording Sylvia and I had this little simple camera to shoot submerged, and he was Sylvia’s jumping amigo, so I said, ‘Would you film Sylvia?’ And he said, ‘Better believe it I cherish it man, I adore it’.”

Just, things turned out badly when DiCaprio’s oxygen tank started to spill.

“I was plunging mates with Edward Norton. So we go down and we see 300 Eagle Rays and Spotted Rays and it was an astonishing plunge,” Stevens proceeds. “Leo fasteners away with Sylvia, and Edward goes before me and the before I know it following twenty minutes, I’d lost every one of them. At that point, I see Leo scarcely breathing, since Leo’s tank was spilling oxygen, and Edward needed to spare him!”

“It was entirely insane,” he concedes. “Be that as it may, he really got some film for me and it was useful for a brief moment, and after that it got entirely unstable when he couldn’t relax. In any case, we truly fortified on that trek.”

This, obviously, isn’t the first run through DiCaprio has confronted a close demise encounter. An awesome white shark once hopped into his enclosure in South Africa, which DiCaprio told Wired he was advised hadn’t transpired in 30 years. He additionally shared that amid a flight to Russia, a motor “exploded” before his eyes, constraining the plane to do a crisis arrival. In January, he really expounded about his frightening background skydiving to Ellen DeGeneres.

“At the point when both of your parachutes don’t open, you have a tendency to not have any desire to rehash something to that effect,” he clowned. “I bounced out of the plane and my first [parachute] didn’t open. It’s couple, so some individual’s on your back, and they cut that line. We began free falling towards earth. What’s more, that is the point at which you get the 8×10 glossies of your entire life blazing before your eyes.”

“At that point the second one was tangled too, and I saw the greater part of my companions kind of popping off with their parachutes, despite everything i’m plunging toward planet Earth,” he proceeded. “And afterward that was tangled for around a decent, I don’t have the foggiest idea, 20, 30 seconds. At that point he unwound it and he let me know, ‘Goodness, you’re likely going to break your legs now since we’re going too quick.’ So it was one of the most exceedingly awful encounters of my life and I’ll never do it again.”

The Oscar-winning on-screen character likewise significantly languished over his specialty in 2015’s The Revenant.

“[I was] continuing solidifying frosty and conceivable hypothermia continually,” DiCaprio reviewed to Yahoo! Films. “I absolutely don’t eat crude buffalo liver all the time.”

“I can name 30 or 40 groupings that were probably the most troublesome things I’ve ever needed to do,” he included. “Whether it’s going all through solidified streams, or dozing in creature corpses, or what I ate on set.”
