    Leonardo DiCaprio Jumped Into A Frozen Lake To Save His Dogs And Then Promptly Stripped Naked (Yes, Naked) In A Car To Warm Up Afterward

    Don't worry, the doggies (and Leo) are fine!

    What the hell was going on during the production of Don't Look Up?

    While Adam McKay's political satire has already hit theaters, its press cycle doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon in preparation for its Christmas Eve premiere on Netflix. I mean, in just the past few weeks we've heard some pretty wild set stories.

    Which brings me to the latest on-set calamity — Leo's rescued huskies decided to take a dip in a frozen lake, prompting the Oscar winner to jump in after them!

    During Entertainment Weekly's Around the Table panel — which featured the director, Leo, J.Law, Meryl, Jonah Hill, and Tyler Perry — the actor was encouraged by his castmates to recount the story.

    "The funniest thing was, Leo has these two rescue huskies that are just absolute tornadoes," McKay said. "Jonah [who roomed with Leo during the shoot] would send me pictures of your ripped-apart couch." Jennifer chimed in, adding, "Tell the frozen lake story."

    Essentially, one of the huskies fell into the lake, so Leo dove after them. "[Living in California] I didn't understand what you do at a frozen lake," the actor continued.

    "One of the dogs fell in, and he jumped in the frozen lake to save the dog and as soon as he pushed the one dog out of the pond the other one jumped in," Jennifer shared. "The other one started licking the one that was drowning and then we all were in the frozen lake together," Leo added.

    Obviously, Leo and his dogs ended up OK, but what happened next? Well, according to Jennifer: "I'm sure you guys are all wondering, I was too, he immediately got naked in the car."

    Sigh, it seems as though Leo's battle with all bodies of water wages on.
