Leonardo DiCaprio Was 'Starstruck' Working Alongside the Late Luke Perry

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest stars of this generation…but even he gets starstruck.

The 44-year-old Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star spoke about working with the late Luke Perry on the new movie, in theaters this weekend.

Leonardo told Extra that Luke was “the kindest, sweetest human being you could ever encounter.”

“I grew up with him on ’90210,’ looking up to him as literally the coolest dude on earth, and honestly, when I was on set, I was starstruck,” Leonardo continued.

“We got to sit down and chat,” Leo added. “He couldn’t have been a more amazing human being. It’s a real tragic loss.”

Luke Perry passed away in March after suffering a devastating stroke at the age of 52. Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Luke Perry and others.
