Audiences first fell in love with a young Leonardo DiCaprio when he appeared on the 80s sitcom Growing Pains. Since then, he’s had a long and successful career working with the best in the biz. Today, he’s the epitome of an A-list actor.

He recently dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote his new film The Revenant. During the interview, Leo shared two separate near-death experiences: one involving the botched skydive jump, and the other involving an airplane that nearly crashed.
Check out this clip of Leo telling the stories with humor, grace, and an amazing southern woman’s accent.
