Greta Thunberg and Leonardo DiCaprio finally meet and share candid photo together: "Greta is a leader of our time"

By

Actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio has been a fan of Greta Thunberg ever since she began her Fridays for Future protests in August 2018. He's even posted on social media praising the 16-year-old many times over the past year. But this week, the pair finally met, and Leo shared a few photos — as well as a heartfelt reflection — of their meeting on social media. 

"There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but Greta Thunberg has become a leader of our time," Leo wrote on Facebook and Instagram. "History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over."
