Leonardo DiCaprio’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star had no idea who he was

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest actors in the world, having been in the industry for more than three decades. But it turns out that being an Oscar winning star isn’t quite enough, as his Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star had absolutely no idea who he was. Yes, seriously. Actress Julia Butters was asked what it was like working with the 44-year-old, and admitted she wasn’t all that familiar with his work. Have you not seen Titanic? Romeo + Juliet? Inception? The Departed not ringing any bells? In a chat with Variety, the 12-year-old confessed: ‘I thought he was a musician.’

But she’s now realized what the rest of the world already knew – that he’s amazing. At one point in the film, her character had to whisper in his ear, telling him ‘that was the best acting I’ve ever seen in my whole life.’ Discussing the scene, Julia said: ‘He’s such a great actor, so I wasn’t really reciting a line. It was mostly coming from me. ‘It wasn’t anything like, “Oh, my gosh. I’m going to go whisper something in Leonardo DiCaprio’s ear.” It was more like, “I’m going to recite this line and whisper in my friend’s ear.”’ But Leo isn’t the only one she was in the dark over, as the American Housewife star only knew Brad Pitt because of his ‘handsome face’.
