Brad Pitt & Leonardo DiCaprio Were Star Struck When They Saw Luke Perry on Set
While on set for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio ran into Luke Perry and had a little fan boy moment.
“‘That’s Luke f–king Perry!’” Pitt, 55, recalled saying to DiCaprio, 44,“We were like kids in the candy shop because I remember going to the studios and [Beverly Hills, 90210] was going on and he was that icon of coolness for us as teenagers. It was this strange burst of excitement that I had, to be able to act with him.”
DiCaprio echoed, “I remember my friend Vinny, who is in the film as well, we walked in and we both had this butterfly moment of like, ‘Oh, my God, that’s Luke Perry over there!’”
Pitt and DiCaprio played stunt double Cliff Booth and Western TV star Rick Dalton, respectively, in the upcoming dark comedy, while Perry had a smaller role as actor Wayne Maunder in what became his final feature film appearance. The Riverdale star died in March after suffering a massive stroke at age 52.
