Leonardo DiCaprio sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an episode of the comedienne's talk show airing Tuesday to chat about his non-profit, LDF, which protects endangered species and their eco-systems. But on one adventure the only one who needed protection was Leo himself. “I went scuba diving looking for sharks and I had a huge fear of sharks and when I did Blood Diamond in 2006 I actually got stuck in a cage with a great white, which was awesome,” he told Ellen.
