Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt have revealed that they freaked out over working with Luke Perry on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The a-list actors were huge fans of Luke when he starred in Beverly Hills, 90210, and were pretty excited when he walked on the set of their upcoming film.

In an interview with Esquire, Leonardo recalled: “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!'”

Brad then said: 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.”

Sadly after filming Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Luke passed away at the age of 52 after suffering a massive stroke.

Speaking after Luke’s death, Brad revealed: “Man, he was so incredibly humble and amazing and absolutely committed.”

“He couldn’t have been a more friendly, wonderful guy to spend time with. I got to sit down and have some wonderful conversations with him.”
