Arriving on time and in style at the Oscars on Sunday night, Leonardo DiCaprio was reunited with a very friendly face on the red carpet – his former Titanic co-star Kate Winslet. The pair, who arrived shortly after one another at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, gave fans exactly what they wanted to see.
Posing for the shutterbugs, Kate, 40, and Leonardo, 41, had a playful exchange. The English rose was pictured beckoning her long-time friend over while Leonardo happily obliged. The duo certainly had a lot to smile about. Leonardo is extremely happy to walk home with his first Oscar, after being nominated for his role in The Revenant. Kate, similarly, has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Steve Jobs.
The famous Titanic actress, was showing off her curves in a metallic Ralph Lauren gown that featured a daring train. Leonardo, meanwhile, was his usual dapper self in a black tuxedo. Fans of “Jack” and “Rose” have enjoyed seeing the actor and actress together during awards season.
Kate was very supportive towards Leornado during the evening. The English beauty has predicted that 2016 is Leonardo’s year and so far Kate has been proven right; Leonardo won the Best Actor Golden Globe in January and the same BAFTA accolade in February. After winning the BAFTA, Leonardo paid tribute to his friend, calling Kate his “homegirl”. When asked at the winners press conference how he felt about Kate being his “main groupie”, Leonardo chuckled, saying, “My main groupie?”
Then he says, “No, it feels amazing, honestly,” I have a true love for cinema, I have ever since I was a young teenager. I grew up in this industry, ironically I felt very detached from it even though I lived in East Los Angeles. I always felt like it was this distant thing that I couldn’t touch. He adds, “So to have worked in this industry since I was 13 years old, having done 20-something odd movies, and to be here now, really feels amazing. It feels fantastic.” “And Kate? Kate is my homegirl,” he added to a room full of laughter.
They are very good friends, although fans would love to see them be a couple.
