Los Angeles: Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio has had more than a few near-death experiences, reported Fox news.

The actor, 41, said that he came face-to-face with a shark and was also on a plane while it malfunctioned.

"If a cat has nine lives, I think I've used a few," Leonardo said.

The star recalled when a great white shark "took about five or six snaps, an arm's length away from my head."

"A great white jumped into my cage when I was diving in South Africa," he said.

"Half its body was in the cage and it was snapping at me."

Leonardo also revealed that he was once on a flight to Russia that made an emergency landing in New York after an engine malfunction.

"I was sitting there looking out at the wing and the entire wing exploded in a fireball," he said. (Also Read: Meet Leonardo DiCaprio's Exact Double. He's Now an Instagram Star)
