Hollywood star Will Smith dives with sharks – video

On the occasion of his 50th birthday, American film star Will Smith decided to make a “bucket list” of things to do before he dies. Among the items he listed was diving with sharks.

[blockquote style=”2″]”All my life I have been terrified of the possibility of finding myself eye to eye with a shark. I blame Stephen Spielberg for that. When ‘Jaws’ was released I was scared sitting in the bath!”[/blockquote]

While filming one of the movies, Smith met Paul De Gelder, a former Australian Army paratrooper and diver who was attacked by a bullshark in 2009 during anti-terrorism training, and Cristina Zenato, a shark behaviourist who, among other things, removes hooks and other fishing gear from their mouths during her dives. It was thanks to them that Big Will began to consider diving with sharks.

To achieve his goal, Will Smith teamed up with Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas, where he took the PADI Discover Scuba course and learned more about sharks and the role they play in the global ecosystem.

And do you too have shark diving on your list of things to do before you die?
