Brad Pitt Says He'd Save BFF Leonardo DiCaprio From 'Titanic' Raft

Brad Pitt Says He'd Save BFF Leonardo DiCaprio From 'Titanic' Raft

Now that's true love.

Brad Pitt took to the stage to accept an award at the Golden Globe Awards last night and couldn't help squeezing in a cheeky Titanic joke whilst name checking BFF Leonardo DiCaprio.

The award was for Best Supporting Actor in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, a film the pair starred in together. And during his acceptance speech he made a dig at Kate Winslet's character Rose DeWitt Bukater from Titanic, suggesting he would've shared that raft to save Leo's character Jack Dawson in that famous heartbreaking scene.

And let's be honest, who wouldn't have? That raft could've fit an army on was pretty selfish.

Over the years since the movie's release back in 1997, the scene has caused much discussion and controversy over Rose not budging up for the so-called love of her life to save him from the icy waters of the Atlantic. We love that Brad managed to work that into his speech.

Leo laughed at the dig along with the audience (

He said in his speech: "I also have to thank my partner in crime, Leonardo DiCaprio.

"Before The Revenant, I used to watch year after year, his co-stars win awards and get up and thank him profusely and I now know why.

"He's an all-star, he's a gent. I wouldn't be here without you, man.

"I thank you. But still... I would've shared the raft."

The dig caused everyone to erupt with laughter, including Leo himself. What a legend.

The movie scooped three awards in total including Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Motion Picture (

The pair have obviously bonded during the filming of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood - their first full length feature film together.

They both featured in The Audition, a short film by Martin Scorsese back in 2015, but now they seem to firmly have each other's backs, particularly when it comes to saving someone from their death in the sea - by the sounds of things.

This isn't the first time Brad, 56, has questioned the scene, with him squeezing another jibe about it into an interview with MTV News with his pal last year.

He said at the time: "Could you? Could you squeeze in?"

Leo replied: "No comment".

But Leonardo DiCaprio wasn't the only person Brad nodded to during his speech, also thanking director Quentin Tarantino for casting him in the role that led to the big win - beating the likes of Tom Hanks, Al Pacino, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Joe Pesci.

Other winners at the Golden Globe Awards included Laura Dern in Marriage Story and Olivia Colman in The Crown and whilst Leonardo was nominated for Best Actor at the awards ceremony for his role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, he was pipped to the post by Taron Egerton in Rocketman.
