He’s known for going all in for his acting roles, so it’s not all that surprising that Leonardo DiCaprio would show the same levels of dedication when it comes to his pets.

In a new podcast appearance, the actor has recalled the moment he took a leaf out of his Oscar-winning role in The Revenant and plunged into a frozen lake in order to rescue his two dogs.


‘Basically they both fell in a frozen lake,’ DiCaprio explained, revealing that to save them he was forced to take a dip as well. ‘And then I went in. I didn’t understand what you do at a frozen lake,’ he said.
