Leonardo DiCarprio and Kate Winslet are clearly best friends forever, and the duo never fails to support one another since becoming chums almost two decades ago. Both nominated for top honours this year (he for The Revenant and she for Steve Jobs), the attractive pair spent time together at the Oscars almost 20 years since first co-starring in Titanic.
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 Labor Day star wowed on the red carpet, showing off her curves in a metallic Ralph Lauren gown that featured a tussled 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. However, Kate wasn't Leo's only date for the award show. "I’m here with my mother," he told ABC, explaining that "she doesn’t like the spotlight" since his mom wasn't present for the interview. The Best Actor nominee also added: "My parents took me to auditions every day after school and they listened to me. They listened to a young child’s dream."
Kate has been very vocal about her support for Leo during the entire awards season. "I feel very strongly that it may possibly be Leo's year and he's my closest friend in the world and I just couldn't imagine not being there to support him, and I think those are reasons enough really to show my face," Kate shared when asked whether she would be attending this year's Oscars. Clearly she was true to her word.
Of the man she's known for almost two decades, and starred with on multiple occasions, Kate also told People, "In many ways he hasn't changed a bit, but in other ways he absolutely has changed."
After scooping the BAFTA for Best Actor, 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?"
Celebrities and fans are rooting for Leo to take home the prize this year, which marks his fifth nomination. Of the possible win, Leo says: "I’ve been in this town for 25 years and this is the big show. After years of hard work this is the end of it all. It’s bitter sweet as well."
