Leonardo DiCaprio has said climate change "is fact" as he addressed the UN Climate Summit in New York.
The newly-appointed UN Messenger of Peace said he was a "concerned citizen" and "one of the 400,000 people who marched in the streets of New York on Sunday."
"As an actor I pretend for a living - I play fictitious characters with fictitious problems. I believe that mankind has looked at climate change in that same way, as if it were a fiction," DiCaprio told the audience.
"But I think we all know better than that now ... none of this is rhetoric and none of this is hysteria, it is fact".
Leonardo DiCaprio was at the opening game of the World Cup last night, and posed for this selfie with friend and former Fugees star Pras Michel.
