Leonardo DiCaprio is having a pretty good year so far: His extreme camping trip could win him a long-overdue Oscar, and now he's hanging out with the pope.
Pope Francis held a 15-minute audience with DiCaprio on Thursday. The two men exchanged gifts and talked about one of their shared passions: the environment.
DiCaprio is a veteran environmental campaigner; he recently used an award speech in Davos, Switzerland, to blast big oil companies for exploiting the environment.
