Leonardo DiCaprio Jumped Into Frozen Lake to Save His Dog

Leo just can’t escape that cold, cold water. While filming on Adam McKay‘s “Don’t Look Up” for Netflix, Leonardo DiCaprio saved his dog from falling into a frozen lake. On set in Boston, one of his dogs fell into the lake, and Leo quickly jumped in. The Oscar winner later quipped that being from California, he didn’t really know what that meant. I suppose it’s like when you block out childbirth because we all know that he should have known exactly what a frozen lake felt like.

During a round table with Entertainment Weekly, the cast elaborated on the frozen lake situation.

As EW reports:

“The funniest thing was, Leo has these two rescue huskies that are just absolute tornadoes,” said McKay of the film’s production. “Jonah would send me pictures of your ripped-apart couch.”

“Tell the frozen lake story,” said Lawrence.

“Basically they both fell in a frozen lake,” said Hill, who lived with DiCaprio during the shoot.

“Yeah, and then I went in,” continued DiCaprio. “[Living in California] I didn’t understand what you do at a frozen lake.”

“One of the dogs fell in,” said Lawrence, “and he jumped in the frozen lake to save the dog and as soon as he pushed the one dog out of the pond the other one jumped in.”

“The other one started licking the one that was drowning and then we all were in the frozen lake together,” said DiCaprio.

“And I’m sure you guys are all wondering, I was too, he immediately got naked in the car,” concluded Lawrence.

These are the dogs in the story found on Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend Camila Morrone‘s Instagram page.
