Like most other Dylan McKay stans, we were rocked by actor Luke Perry's unexpected death in March at age 52. Turns out, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio were too.
The only difference is, they were able to work with Perry on the upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and now they're opening up about the experience in an interview with Esquire.
Both recall being starstruck by the opportunity to work with Perry. Says DiCaprio, "I remember my friend Vinny, who is in the film as well, we walked in and we both had this butterfly moment of like, 'Oh my God, that's Luke Perry over there!'"
For Pitt's part, he says he practically yelled, "That's Luke f--king Perry!" Which, same. He continued, "We were like kids in the candy shop because I remember going to the studios and [Beverly Hills, 90210] was going on and he was that icon of coolness for us as teenagers. It was this strange burst of excitement that I had, to be able to act with him."
