DiCaprio was among the passengers on the flight bound for Moscow on Sunday (21Nov10), according to UsMagazine.com.

The commercial jetliner was forced to return to New York's JFK International Airport.

The movie star's representative says, "Leonardo wishes to commend the actions of the pilot and flight crew in bringing the plane to a safe landing."

It is not known if DiCaprio will still attend the Tiger Summit, which opened on Sunday. The meeting of the world's high powers is being held to discuss what can be done to save tigers from extinction in the 13 countries where the big cats currently live and breed in the wild.
