He detailed the pet rescue during the sit-down discussion with his Don't Look Up costars Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Tyler Perry, Jonah Hill, and the film's director Adam McKay.
DiCaprio said, "Basically, they both fell in a frozen lake. I didn't understand what you do in a frozen lake.” Jennifer Lawrence added to the conversation by sharing her version of the rescue story. “One of the dogs fell in, and he jumped into the frozen lake to save the dog. As soon as he pushed the one dog out of the pond, the other one jumped in,” the pregnant star shared.
Jennifer Lawrence then joked about what happened afterward saying, “I'm sure you guys are all wondering, I was too, he immediately got naked in the car.”
