Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio stopped by the Variety platform to talk about his own early days as an actor. Including a time where he channeled fellow nominee Joaquin Phoenix during one of his earlier auditions. Phoenix would go on to win the SAG award that night for actor, and namecheck DiCaprio as the kid who got all the parts when they were both still getting started.
The “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” star also shared his experiences working with the late actor Luke Perry on the Quentin Tarantino set. Revealing that he was “starstruck” around Perry, DiCaprio called him the “modern day James Dean.”
