Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, two of Hollywood’s most legendary actors, will star in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’. While doing a press junket at NBC with Harry Smith, Pitt, 55, and DiCaprio, 44, explained that this was the first time they were doing a movie together but they did both appear on the popular 80’s/ 90’s sitcom Growing Pains, though they never shared scenes together. DiCaprio portrayed recurring character of the homeless boy, Luke Brower from 1991 to 1992, while Pitt made guest appearances as two different characters in 1987 and 1989.
Pitt and DiCaprio made headlines at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2019 while promoting the movie about actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime friend and stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt).
Pitt’s recent red carpet appearance marks his first in seven years and since filing for divorce from ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
Pitt and DiCaprio are the two of the most in demand actors and producers in Hollywood today, each with an Oscar accolade to their own credit.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set to be released on July 26.
