Hope I get to work with DiCaprio again: Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt says he would love to work with his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Leonardo DiCaprio again.

The Quentin Tarantino directorial is the first collaboration between the two Hollywood stars and Pitt, 55, said they had a “fun” time working on the film.

“It was great, great ease, fun. I had a great laugh with him. And it’s that thing of knowing you got the best of the best on the opposite side of the table holding up the scene with you.

“There’s a great relief in that. We kept the same reference points, we came on (the sets) at the same time, had similar experience to laugh about. I hope I get to do it again,” he told reporters.

According to Variety, the actor was speaking at a press conference at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival.

DiCaprio, 44, echoed Pitt’s sentiments, calling him “a terrific actor” and “a professional”.

He said the fact that Tarantino worked thoroughly on the backstories of the characters they play in the film helped them settle in as co-stars more easily.

The film, which had its world premiere at Cannes, is billed as Tarantino’s ode to the Hollywood of his childhood and explores how the Golden Age of the industry came to an end with the murder of actor Sharon Tate at the hands of the Manson Family cult in 1969.

The film releases in July.
