Leonardo DiCaprio jumped into a frozen lake to save his dogs
Leonardo DiCaprio recounted the agonizing sensation of falling into icy water while playing Jack in Titanic, and he can now say he had the intimidating experience in real life.
âWater that cold like over there hits you like a thousand knives stabbing you all over your body,â he warned Rose (Kate Winselt) in the film. “You can’t breathe, you can’t thinkâ¦ At least not about anything other than pain.”
His description seemed pretty miserable at the time. The actor can tell you firsthand how he feels now.
Why this? Well, it turns out DiCaprio had to jump into a frozen lake to save his dogs, Jack and Jill, after one of them fell into it.
He detailed the frosty experience during a group interview with the cast of Do not seek. DiCaprio was asked to open up about the terrifying moment by director Adam Mckay while speaking to Weekly entertainment.
âBasically, they both fell into a frozen lake,â said DiCaprio. “I didn’t understand what you are doing in a frozen lake.”
Jennifer Lawrence stepped in to explain the situation as Meryl Streep dropped her second shocked “Oh My God”.
âOne of the dogs fell,â Lawrence explained. He jumped into the frozen lake to save the dog, and as soon as he pushed one dog out of the pond, the other jumped in. “
âThe other one started licking the drowning one. And then we were all together in the frozen lake,â DiCaprio added.

Do not worry; Lawrence answered the most important question about the situation.
“I’m sure you’re all wondering, so was I,” she teased. “He immediately bared himself in the car.”
