Leo get Shark attacked!

leosharkLeonardo DiCaprio’s life isn’t always as glitzy and glamorous as his vacay pictures make it appear to be.

In fact, the Wolf of Wall Street star has had “a few” shark encounters—including one with a “gigantic great white” when he was almost eaten alive!

“I went scuba diving looking for sharks, and I had a huge fear of sharks,” he says on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Tuesday, Jan 7. “When I did Blood Diamond in 2006, I actually got stuck in a cage with a great white, which was awesome.”

“It was in the cage with me,” he adds. “They actually said in 30 years this is has never happened, but the tuna kind of got stuck in the top of the cage and the great white kept on and tried to bite it and went into the cage with me…and half of its body was in and out and I flattened down at the bottom.”

“It was this far away [shows small distance] and it chomped a few times, but I survived it,” he says, and thank goodness for that! You’d think  Jaws would cut the Titanic star some slack in the ocean of all places.

But nearly becoming fish food isn’t the only unglamorous part of the 39-year-old actor’s life! While filming an intricate Wolf of Wall Street scene with Jonah Hill, crewmembers “couldn’t get this ham to stick on my face,” so they covered it with K-Y Jelly!

“There’s literally a guy there behind this giant window with a plastic spoon just flicking ham on my face all day long as I’m doing this insane sequence,” he recalls “But it was almost, it was one of the most surreal things I’ve ever done in my entire career.”
