One of the dogs apparently fell into the frozen lake, which prompted DiCaprio to immediately jump in after it, Entertainment Weekly reported. In the video from the interview, actress Jennifer Lawrence revealed that “as soon as he pushed the one dog out of the pond the other one jumped in.”

The dogs were rescued in 2020 by DiCaprio and his girlfriend, People Magazine reported.
