“This is pretty cold, this whole experience,” DiCaprio said when asked about Titanic and Revenant shooting experiences at the Bafta red carpet. “We should be more used to this cold, but I’m not. It’s been awhile,” the actor joked at the red carpet. Inarritu, who took home the award for best director, conceded that DiCaprio had to put up with more of the chilly weather during filming but the actor said the whole crew had a tough time.

“I suppose I was submerged in the ice a lot more, but look – it was a team effort, we all knew what we were getting into,” he said. “We knew we weren’t going on a tropical vacation in Hawaii and the Maldives, we were going to be submerged in the wilderness like this. But at the end of the day we have a great piece of art to show for it, so we’re all excited to be here.”
