    Leonardo DiCaprio's Accused Face-Slasher Pleads Innocent

    Leonardo DiCaprio's beautiful face is thismuch closer to revenge.

    The woman alleged to have slashed the Inception star's mug with broken glass five years ago is professing her innocence.

    Aretha Wilson pleaded not guilty today in Los Angeles to a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon stemming from the June 2005 incident.

    The 40-year-old Canadian is accused of attacking the 35-year-old star at a Hollywood Hills after supposedly mistaking DiCaprio for an old boyfriend.

    The actor suffered a gash on his neck and near his ear that took 12 stitches to close. But before L.A.'s Finest could take her into custody, Wilson skipped town.

    In July, the former model was extradited back to the U.S. from her native Toronto, where she spent time in jail for a similar assault. She remains behind bars in lieu of $150,000 bail.

    DiCaprio has indicated his willingness to testify against her at her upcoming trial, while her attorney previously told E! News that it was the Titanic heartthob who allegedly instigated the altercation and not the other way around.

    If convicted, Wilson could face up to seven years in prison.

    The next court date is set for Oct. 13.
