“I couldn’t stop crying,” the actress told The Guardian in December 2021 of being reunited with Leo after nearly three years apart due to the pandemic. “I’ve known him for half my life! It’s not as if I’ve found myself in New York or he’s been in London and there’s been a chance to have dinner or grab a coffee and a catch up. We haven’t been able to leave our countries. Like so many friendships globally, we’ve missed each other because of COVID.”

Additionally, Leo has starred in critically acclaimed films like The Beach, Gangs of New York, Catch Me If You Can, Blood Diamond, Revolutionary Road, Inception, The Great Gatsby, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Revenant, Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood and Netflix’s Don’t Look Up.
