Leonardo DiCaprio was impressed when he met Greta Thunberg.
The actor shared a picture of himself with the climate change activist on Instagram.
He wrote he hoped “Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere" and that the "time for inaction is over.”
He also praised the teenager for her work and said because of her he is “optimistic about what the future holds”.
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
