Edward Norton is confirming that he did save Leonardo DiCaprio from drowning off the coast of the Galapagos Islands while scuba diving together.
“We were in the Galapagos Islands. We were scuba diving with Sylvia Earle, the great oceanographer,” Edward said while making an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. “I’ve known Leo a long time and he loses his mind around animals. He really has a childlike passion for them.”
“This flight of 100 spotted eagle rays went by below us and I saw the look on his face,” he continued. “I saw him charging off with this camera that he had and I have been diving since I was 16 years old. I reflectively looked at my watch and was like: ‘We’re very close to the end.’”
“I saw him going off and down and I knew that wasn’t a good thing so I followed him because I thought to myself, he’s chasing these things, he’s going to run out of air – and he did,” Edward continued.
The pair were in the Galapagos together to film the 2016 documentary Before the Flood.
