Active defender of the environment, Leonardo DiCaprio is also a great lover of animals. He is the proud owner of two dogs, named Jack and Jill. In an interview with the media Entertainment Weekly, the actor who was shooting for the film Don't Look Up, reveals that he jumped into the frozen water to save his two huskies. Basically, they both fell into a frozen lake. I didn't understand what they were doing in a frozen lake, he related.
During this interview, his on-screen partner, Jennifer Lawrence interrupted him to continue this funny story. One of the dogs fell in and he jumped into the frozen lake to save the dog. As soon as he pushed the first dog out of the water, the other one jumped in. The star, who lives in California, added that his huskies didn't understand the concept of the frozen lake.
Jennifer Lawrence joked about the rest of the mishap, including the actor's exit from the water. I'm sure you're all wondering, I was wondering too. He immediately got naked in the car. The film's director Adam McKay was present for the discussion. He described his star actor's dogs as absolute tornadoes.
This is not the first time Leonardo DiCaprio has shown heroism. In 2019, the Oscar-winning star saved a man who fell overboard from a yacht in St. Bartholomew.
