Leonardo DiCaprio Jumped Into A Frozen Lake To Save His Dogs While Filming “Don’t Look Up”
My favorite movie of all time is Titanic (shut up), but I have a hard time reconciling my beloved Jack Dawson with today’s version of Leonardo DiCaprio. But maybe I’m wrong. Cuz today Leo is making headlines for saving his two rescue Huskies, Jack (!) and Jill, from drowning in a frozen lake. And Jack Dawson would totally jump into freezing waters to save the one he loves. Hell, he’d let himself freeze to death on a floating door to save a woman he met two days before!
Leo shared the story during Entertainment Weekly’s roundtable sit-down with the cast of Don’t Look Up. The incident happened while filming, via Page Six:
“Basically, they both fell in a frozen lake,” DiCaprio, 47, said of his two dogs, named Jack and Jill. “I didn’t understand what you do in a frozen lake.”
Co-star Jennifer Lawrence then interrupted DiCaprio to help him tell the story, saying, “One of the dogs fell in, and he jumped into the frozen lake to save the dog.” She added, “As soon as he pushed the one dog out of the pond, the other one jumped in.”
DiCaprio explained, “Well, the other one started licking the one that was drowning, and then we all were in the frozen lake together.”
Leo says his dogs didn’t “understand the concept of a frozen lake” because they’re California pups. Jennifer Lawrence then joked:
“I’m sure you guys are all wondering, I was too, he immediately got naked in the car.”
The film’s director, Adam McKay, was also sitting in on the panel discussion, and described DiCaprio’s dogs as “absolute tornadoes,” with Lawrence agreeing that they are “psychotic.”
Leo shares ownership of Jack and Jill, plus a third Husky named Sally, with his long-time “really solid” girlfriend, 24-year-old model Camila Morrone.
Here’s the video of Leo telling the story:
And here’s a picture of Leo’s cute little babies (his girlfriend and their pups):
I’m glad Leo’s doggies are OK. But if Camila thinks him saving their pups is an indication that he’s ready to be a dad soon, think again! The man’s only 47! His biological clock won’t start ticking ’til he’s well into his seventies. And by then Camila will be well past the age of fuckability in Leo’s eyes. Sorry, toots! Bad timing.
