Los Angeles (AP) - Two celebrities for the climate: Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio (44, "Titanic", "The Revenant") has met with the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg (16). He hopes that Thunberg's message on action against the climate crisis is a wake-up call for politicians around the world, wrote the Oscar winner on his Instagram profile.

He also took two pictures of them sitting smiling in the sun. "Greta Thunberg has become a leader of our time," wrote DiCaprio on Instagram. Because of her and other young activists he is optimistic about what the future holds. "It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I promised to support each other, hoping to create a brighter future for our planet. "

When exactly the photos were taken was unclear. Thunberg has been in North America for more than two months. She is currently in Los Angeles, where she had protested with others on Friday for stronger action against the climate crisis.
