Possibly hoping for divine intervention ahead of this month's Academy Awards, Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio met with fellow environmentalist Pope Francis Jan. 28. Although DiCaprio is not known to be a practising Catholic, he shares the pope's views on protecting the environment. DiCaprio is nominated in the best actor category in this month's Academy Awards for his role in The Revenant. He has so far failed to win an Oscar, despite being nominated five times previously since 1993.(CNS photo/L'Osservatore Romano, handout)
