Leonardo DiCaprio is responding to what sounds like an outrageous accusation from Brazil's President, that the environmentally-conscious actor paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to burn down the Amazon Forest.
"At this time of crisis for the Amazon, I support the people of Brazil working to save their natural and cultural heritage.
"They are an amazing, moving and humbling example of the commitment and passion needed to save the environment. The future of these irreplaceable ecosystems is at stake and I am proud to stand with the groups protecting them. While worthy of support, we did not fund the organizations targeted."
