Leonardo DiCaprio has praised “inspiring and revolutionary” Pope Francis and described meeting him as an “incredible honour”.

The actor who won for best performance by a male actor in a leading role for his turn in The Revenant had a private meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Thursday morning, and a source told PEOPLE, "Leo explained that he wanted to discuss a subject they both have very much at heart: protecting the environment and climate change."



Speaking backstage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Leonardo said:

“We have 99% of the scientific community now saying climate change exists and it’s caused by mankind. Anyone who doesn’t believe in climate change doesn’t believe in science. So the fact that he has come out as the spiritual leader endorsing the scientific movement is unprecedented, and it was an incredible honour to meet him.”

During the 15-minute meeting, DiCaprio presented the pontiff with a check from his environmental philanthropy foundation for the Pope to use for charity works, and gifted him with a book containing works by the painter Hieronymus Bosch. DiCaprio explained that as a baby, the triptych "The Garden of Earthly Delights" hung over his crib, and had a profound impact on him when he was growing up.
