Leonardo DiCaprio: ‘Revenant’ Drove Home Need to Take Climate Action
Charlie Rose had the chance to sit down with DiCaprio and Iñárritu prior to the awards ceremony to talk about the film.
While filming for The Revenant, DiCaprio said he saw how “we’re systemically destroying … our planet on an unprecedented scale in human history.”
The impacts of climate change really hit home for the cast and crew, he said. “We’re seeing firsthand so many climatic changes that we had to change locations to the southern tip of Argentina just to find snow, and here we are today seeing unprecedented weather events all over the world,” DiCaprio explained.
