After Rose in Titanic , Leonardo DiCaprio saves another life at sea!
At the end of December, the actor was on vacation with his friends and his new girlfriend of 21 years Camila Morrone on a luxury boat rented near Saint-Barthélemy … when they heard an emergency call informing that a search was underway for a drunken man overboard.
“Leo, his friends and their boat captain decided to join the search and their efforts resulted in saving a man’s life. The boat crew were happy to try to help – even more so they could help get the man to safety. ” Said a source
The star’s boat was the only one looking in the area where the man had drifted. The individual, a Frenchman, was spotted and rescued in rough water, about an hour before sunset and before a heavy rain storm.
A week after the incident, Leo was back in Hollywood preparing for the Golden Globes where he was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – musical or comedy for Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood .
Although he didn’t win (the honor went to Joaquin Phoenix), he received the support of his co-star Brad Pitt after winning the award for Best Supporting Actor.
“I also have to thank my partner in crime, PMA. Before The Revenant, I used to watch, year after year, his costars accepting awards and thanking him profusely. I know why. He’s a star, he’s a gentleman, and I wouldn’t be here without you man. I thank you. “
” But – I would have shared the raft. ” He added referring to the scene at the end of Titanic.
