Leonardo DiCaprio Calls Kate Winslet His 'Homegirl' and Thanks Her for Unwavering Support
Leo and Kate sure have a long and beautiful history.
Their hearts may not go on for each other in a romantic way, but Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet have maintained an adorable and steadfast friendship since their Titanic days. The 41-year-old actor, who is expected to win this year's Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Revenant, recently spoke about Winslet's unwavering support, especially during this awards season.
Winslet recently stated that she would not boycott the Oscars because she wants to see her close friend take home the big prize.
Clearly, her comments did not go unnoticed. After picking up the Best Actor BAFTA on Sunday, DiCaprio was asked about his long-time pal backstage. One of the reporters referred to Winslet as his “main groupie.”
"My main groupie?" DiCaprio laughed off the comment, before thanking Winslet and everyone else for their outpouring of support.
"It feels amazing," he said. "Honestly, I have a true love for cinema. I have, ever since I was a young teenager . . . So to have worked in this industry ever since I was 13 years old, having done 20-something movies and to be here now, and have it be for a film like this that we worked so very hard on, it feels amazing. It feels fantastic.
"And Kate – that's my homegirl!" DiCaprio added at the end.
