What happens when two environmentalist stars collide? They post about it on Instagram.
In a maybe not so surprising turn of events, fans of Leonardo DiCaprio and Greta Thurnberg got to see the two stars meet after DiCaprio wrote a post on his personal social media profile.
The Academy Award winner shared a picture of him and the Swedish student, with the caption: “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.”

There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time. 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. It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds. It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet. #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike @fridaysforfuture
He continued that 16-year-old Thunberg’s message should be a “wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over”.
“It was an honor to spend time with Greta,” he said. “She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet.”
A few days later, Greta was spotted hanging out with another Hollywood star: none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The actor and former governor of California also posted a photo on Instagram of him cycling with Greta in Santa Monica, who he described as a “hero”.
Schwarzenegger wrote, “It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes [Greta Thunberg] last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!”
