Leonardo DiCaprio Tells Ellen DeGeneres About His Bad Luck

Leonardo DiCaprio Tells Ellen DeGeneres About His Bad Luck

Leonardo DiCaprio is all smiles while appearing next to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show in an interview airing on Friday (January 8).

The 41-year-old actor opened up about two times when he was not smiling due to his bad luck. The first one was when he went skydiving and his parachute wouldn’t open and the other was when he was on a plane and an engine blew out.

“I jumped out of the airplane. And then my first shoot didn’t open,” Leo explained. “They cut it’s tandem so somebodies on your back they cut that line. We started free falling towards earth. And that’s when you get the 8×10 glossies of your whole life flashing before your eyes. And then the second one was tangled as well and I saw all of my friends sort of popping off with ya know their parachutes and I’m still plummeting toward planet earth. And then that was tangled for about a good I don’t know, 20, 30 seconds. And then he untangled it and then he told me, ‘Oh you’re probably going to break your legs now because this we’re going too fast.’ So it was one of the worst experiences of my life and I’ll never do it again.”

Thankfully his legs did not break!

    Maybe is cause English isn’t my native language so I pay a lot of attention to the way native speakers talk and pronunce but I love it when Leo talks.
    I value a lot when someone has a way of talking that makes it easy to understand all of the words he’s saying and that’s the case with him. He says words in a very clear way imo.
    I also value a lot interesting accents and sounding articulate so he’s one of my faves people to watch interviews from (though in promotion he repeats certain answer too much but you can’t have everything i guess lol)

    Night? Weekend! You’re gonna see The Revenant and Sunday is GG!

  • ####

    Funny that she just started following Suki yesterday. She’s a hanger on!

  • Charade

    Do they usually put the interviews up online on that program? Cause I’d like to see it. Someone posted a link but is noisy and not good quality :S

  • ####

    I think so if they haven’t already put it up. I thought I saw it on the other thread or maybe down below?

  • ####

    OMG we’re supposed to see The Revenant while the GG’s are on! Damn it!!! I totally forgot the GG’s were on on Sunday night! What am I going to do? :-(

  • Charade

    If she wanted to show Leo what he’s missing she should have made sure she looked good to begin with LOL

  • AzureRose
  • also…

    Or that he was in attendance. The article says he wasn’t there. What a stupid post!

  • Charade

    Below is the Today interview. On the other thread it was the link I’m talking about, someone recorded it from her mobile or sth

  • also…

    His category might be towards the end and you can record it. Just avoid social media until you get home and you can re-watch it. Or go to an earlier show?

  • Still Together

    The A-list exes.. lol

  • ####

    It doesn’t look like it’s up on his website yet. Maybe check You Tube?

  • Charade

    Neither. Will have to wait

  • also…

    The D-list wannabes

  • J Gurl

    Page Six is so annoying! Seriously they are obsessed with Kelly or she is funding this crap. Leo doesn’t care, move on.

  • ####

    We were going to an 8:20 movie. My son is off on Sunday and my daughter works til 6 so we were going to grab something to eat after she got off work and then go to the 8:20 movie. I’m trying to see how late my son works on Saturday so maybe we can see it Saturday night and then that will free up Sunday night for the GGs.

  • girl93

    Page Six is Kelly’s sponsor??

  • xica

    How weird. Jared has included Leo as hot topic when he’s always a hot topic

  • girl93

    Remember that thanks to Bradley Cooper she is getting movie roles?

  • also…

    Apparently! 😏
