It wasn’t much of a stretch for Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to get into their Once Upon a Time in Hollywood roles. After all, like the characters, they’ve both been around the Hollywood scene for a long time. Of course, the film is set 50 years ago, so the city and culture may have been a little different back in the 1960s, but Pitt and DiCaprio told us the characters’ motivations and the way they had to navigate the show business landscape felt very familiar. Because of that, they say they both felt an intrinsic understanding of their characters. (Click on the media bar below to hear Leonardo DiCaprio & Brad Pitt)
