How do you get Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the world’s most enigmatic stars, to reveal his secrets? Take him shark diving…
Leonardo DiCaprio is wearing a hooded wetsuit that almost conceals his good looks, but there’s no mistaking the glint in his cobalt-blue eyes. He is ‘stoked’.
We’re in the middle of Shark Alley, South Africa, and Mike Rutzen, our great white shark-safari guide, has just shown us the flimsy looking cage on the side of his 12.5-metre boat, Barracuda, where we’ll be getting up close with the fiercest predator on Earth.
The water is choppy and one of DiCaprio’s friends is lying on deck suffering from seasickness. DiCaprio, meanwhile, can’t wait to get into the water. Waterproof camera in hand, he puts on his mask and slides into the cage, grinning wildly despite the cold.
He’s an experienced scuba diver, totally at ease in this environment. As Rutzen throws foul-smelling bait, known as chum, into the water he tells us that the sharks’ keen sense of smell will draw them from as far as five miles away.
