Oscar-nominated actor, Leonardo DiCaprio meets with Pope Francis

The pontiff met with a fellow green advocate earlier today: Leonardo DiCaprio. The Oscar-nominated actor had an audience with Pope Francis at about 11.15 am today, Rome time.

The meet was reported by the EWTN Rome bureau chief.

Pope Francis and Leonardo share similar interests on the climate change. Early this year, the actor was given an award at the World Economic Forum in Davos for his green campaigning. Addressing them, he announced his foundation was donating another $15 million to environmental projects and appealed to global leaders to intervene in the battle for climate change.

According to The Independent, DiCaprio said at Davos,“We simply cannot afford to allow the corporate greed of the coal, oil and gas industries to determine the future of humanity.”

In June 2015, the Pope released an encyclical on the environment, in which he warned of an “unprecedented destruction of ecosystems” and called on the world’s nations to act quickly on climate change.

The 41-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio was raised as a Catholic in California, but has no religion, although he has expressed an interest in Buddhism,he says he is not an atheist.
