Leo DiCaprio jumped into a frozen lake to save Camila Morrone’s dogs

World Premiere of Netflix's 'Don't Look Up'

The reviews of Don’t Look Up are terrible! Every review I’ve seen is basically like “this movie doesn’t work, it’s trash, it doesn’t actually say anything.” We’ll see. It’s on Netflix though, so it’s not like anyone is worried about the box office. During a round-table cast discussion to promote the film, Leonardo DiCaprio talked about HIS dogs. And I’d just like to point out that the dogs aren’t actually his! His girlfriend Camila Morrone decided to foster two Husky puppies and of course she became yet another foster failure. Camila actually just picked up Jack at first, but she decided to go back to the shelter and pick up Jack’s sister Jill. Reportedly, Leo was wary but he grew to love the dogs and now he and Camila have three dogs total. Leo really cares about these puppies too. He cares enough to jump into a frozen lake to save them.

Leonardo DiCaprio jumped into frozen waters to save his two rescue Huskies while filming “Don’t Look Up,” he revealed during Entertainment Weekly’s “Around the Table” sit-down with his cast members.

“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.”

The Oscar-winning actor said that his dogs “did not understand the concept of a frozen lake” due to the fact that they live in California.

Lawrence, 31, then joked about what happened next, saying, “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.”

DiCaprio and his girlfriend, 24-year-old model Camila Morrone, rescued the Huskies together in 2020. They also share a third Husky named Sally.

Leo the Puppy-Rescuer. He must have really bonded with Camila’s dogs to the point where they’re traveling with him on location and he’s diving into half-frozen lakes to save them. And every Husky I’ve ever met has been a little bit crazy. They’re super-smart dogs though, and they know they have a good thing going with Leo and Camila. I wonder if Jack and Jill will go with Camila during the eventual breakup? Tick tock, Camila turns 25 in June 2022.

    Yeah. I am just going to say it. This never happened. /insert GIF

    • girl_ninja says:

      So Jen and Adam are in on this elaborate lie? Why would they do that?

    • goofpuff says:

      I agree. This sounds totally made up. Leo is the type to have one of his flunkies jump in and rescue the dogs. I don’t really see him doing it. And do dogs really just jump in frozen water like its nothing?

    • David Frank Guetta says:

      You are correct; those dogs live with Cami at her house in West LA, and you can see her walking them along Beverly Blvd almost daily. No one paps her unless they get paid to do so.

    • UhNO says:

      “rescued 3 Huskies”—-when the term “HUMBLE BRAG” makes an apropos come-back.

      & BTW- of course a Dog doesn’t “understand” a frozen lake- Do Leo & his model understand “pet care”? Even a kindergartener understands “leash” & most understand “enclosure”…..Hope these animals survive two narcissists!!!!!

  2. Kkat says:

    Ok well this make me like him a hell of a lot more.

    And it will be interesting to see how this relationship goes, they have been together awhile and have dog children together. I don’t think he’s ever committed this much before.

    • JT says:

      They’ve been together for so long because she was already very young when they got together. Plenty of time for the full Leo D Girlfriend Experience.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Me too!! And his response sounded so much like Leo;

      “I didn’t understand what you do in a frozen lake.”

  3. Merricat says:

    This is the sweetest thing I’ve read about Leo in ages.

  4. Nikki* says:

    I don’t understand why you said “She became another foster failure.” Do you mean because she adopted the dogs? I’d call that a success!

  5. girl_ninja says:

    Husky dogs are so beautiful! I like Camila’s cold bangle in the photo.

  6. KLO says:

    The dogs are probably younger than 25 years of age. He wouldn`t have cared if they had been older. (wondering if anyone gets my joke )

  7. RiaN says:

    Ugh! My husky figured out how to escape, and I THOUGHT I had it fixed. I wasn’t letting him out till the handyman came to double check it.
    So then he (doggo) goes, pees right in front of the door, and stares at me. I throw him out and clean it up. I go back to the front room, and I see his fluffy tail bouncing down the street. He peed on the floor so I would let him out just so he could run around.

    • JL says:

      My grandmother had a husky. (She was a failed sled dog rescue, not a purchased dog. Please adopt, don’t shop!) Her dog would come to visit us for long “excecise vacations”, where she would get to go for much more intense runs than my grandmother could manage. Pretty much the minute she got within 10 miles of our house, she was on her feet in the car, plotting her escape. We tried EVERYTHING, but we only ever achieved a 50/50 rate of getting her safely into the house without her making a 6 hour jail break.

  8. Kkat says:

    I have a little Griffin, who normally aren’t vocal. But next door has 3 huskeys.
    So now my little dog constantly talks, groans and woo woos its hilarious

  9. Sof says:

    I don’t know how I’d react in that situation, Leo’s reflex were great then! It kinda sounds as if the dogs were playing though… I’d never had a Husky but understand that they love snow and cold weather, those videos of them out in the snow refusing to get inside their homes are so funny.

    • Aud says:

      I have 2 pomskies and 1 is 75% husky. That one never wants to come in. It was -25 one morning and I had to bribe him to get him to come in before I left for work. He was just happily laying in a snow pile looking at me defiantly.

  10. J says:

    Is it just me or is this relationship cringe? He met her as a family friend when she was like 11?

  11. Feebee says:

    He doesn’t understand a frozen lake and she’s half his age?!

    Sorry, got a bit distracted. Glad the dogs are fine.

  12. Tiffany :) says:

    I love dogs so much. They are the best. That is all.

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      Same and even though Leo has never been my thing (why did everyone list after him post titanic? He looked like a lost boy to me) this story is wonderful and I even like him a little bit.

  13. Songs (Or it didnt happen) says:

    Did he put the dogs on a nearby floating door?

  14. The Recluse says:

    We adopted two shepherd mix brothers from an animal rescue and there must be something to adopting siblings. They are so rambunctious. They have created a race track in the front yard where they chase each other in circuits.

  15. jferber says:

    The dogs are adorable. I’ll root for them.

  16. David Frank Guetta says:

    Notice how Lukas Haas has disappeared from Leo’s world.

  17. Misskitten says:

    I’m sure this has already been said (I’m in SF so I often don’t get a chance to check Celebitchy til long after East Coast/Central US folk) but well well well, SOMEONE is trying to pull attention away from his asinine comments regarding the possibility of Meryl Streep, a woman OVER age 25 (gasp!) doing a nude scene in “his” movie/movie in which he is ONE of the stars, not THE star, furthermore I don’t think he’s even a producer on this film so who the hell he thinks he is dictating that kind of stuff, I don’t know.

  18. Andrea says:

    He and Jake Gyllenhal should befriend one another.
