Putin called DiCaprio “real man”
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called Leonardo DiCaprio “real man” because the actor was able to come to the tiger forum in St. Petersburg.
Russian Prime Minister explained how the American movie star on his way to Russia had to replace three planes. Shuttle Boeing 767 New York – London with DiCaprio on board forced to return to the airport on Nov. 22 because of the fire engine. DiCaprio thanked the crew of Delta Airlines for a soft landing, and moved to a small private plane. However, the private plane on its way ran out of fuel, and laded in a village in Helsinki.
Head of Russian Government thanked DiCaprio and noted “I do not think that everyone there would be a desire to continue the journey, but Mr. DiCaprio is not one of them. We talk about these: a real man!” If the protection of nature, including tigers, is in the hands of people with such character, we doomed to success, “- he said.
As Newsamen reported, DiCaprio, donated $ 1 million to save tigers. This sum he handed over the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
DiCaprio in Russia also spoke about his Russian roots. “Name of my ancestors was Smirnov – said DiCaprio. – My grandfather was Russian. So I’m half Russian. Only I don’t speak the language.”
