Could Leonardo DiCaprio be any sweeter? We're willing to look past his womanizing ways after hearing about this...

Apparently the Wolf of Wall Street star was ALMOST KILLED by a great white shark in 2006. Despite the close encounter, he still dedicates his own time and money to protect their natural habitat!
Yesterday Leo sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and spilled the details of his almost death.  He said that he was almost eaten by a great white shark while in South Africa around the time he was filming Blood Diamond. He revealed "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."
