Leonardo DiCaprio's career almost ended like a scene out of JAWS
when he came face to face with a great white shark! The actor was filming Blood Diamond
in 2006 and while filming in the water, he got stuck in a cage with a great white. He revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, "It was a gigantic great white. It was in the cage with me. They actually said, 'In 30 years this has never happened.'" He continued, "Half of its body was in and out, and I'm flattened down at the bottom. It was this far away and it chomped a few times, but I survived it."
What a trooper! How has he not won an Oscar yet?!
