Imagine, if you will, a room full of three things: a fireball, a great white shark, and Anakin Skywalker. If you're already shouting "The answer is Leonardo DiCaprio!" at your respective screen, then you're way ahead of me. Having successfully avoided the pitfalls of those three potential threats, DiCaprio decided to share another near-death experience tale with the world because sure why not.

In his new cover story interview for Rolling Stone (the same issue, coincidentally, wherein Sean Pennhangs out with the recently re-capturedEl Chapo), DiCaprio recounts that one time he suddenly found himself in desperate need of some oxygen while scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands. Edward Norton, remarkably enough, calmly stepped in to save his life:

In desperate need of oxygen, the actor began to panic before an unlikely savior came to his aid: Edward Norton, who was also diving nearby and shared his tank with DiCaprio before they both slowly swam to the surface.

Wow. Two legends swimming to the surface after one legend rescued the other. What else do you have to properly compete with that El Chapo scoop, DiCaprio?

"Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this?" DiCaprio asks when pressed about eventually having children. "If it happens, it happens. I'd prefer not to get into specifics about it, just because then it becomes something that is misquoted. But yeah, I don't know. To articulate how I feel about it is just gonna be misunderstood."

That'll do it.
