Brad won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture for Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, and when he took to the stage to accept it, the actor made reference to his dating life and the rumour mill.

“I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t, because anyone I stand next to, they say I’m dating," he quipped. "And that would just be awkward."

There were lots of laughs from the audience at the line, and the camera quickly panned to Jennifer, who was laughing along with them.

"I would've shared the raft," he joked, which was famously in reference to the scene in Titanic when Leo's character Jack dies, and Kate Winslet's character, Rose, survives because she isn't in the frigid water.
