While it is one thing for fans to be star-struck by celebrities. But it is something else when we learn that celebrities are star struck by their co-stars. And that's just what happened when Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio bumped into Luke Perry on the sets of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Luke, who passed away earlier this year following a stroke, was seen in Beverly Hills, 90210. The actors recently revealed that they turned into kids when they met their teenage icon on the sets of the Quentin Tarantino movie. 

Speaking to Esquire, the duo recalled that they couldn't believe that Luke Perry was standing there. Pitt recalled his interaction with the actor and said the sweetest things about Perry. 

“‘That’s Luke f–king Perry!’” the actor told DiCaprio when he saw Perry. “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," he 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!’” DiCaprio added. 

“Man, he was so incredibly humble and amazing and absolutely committed,” Pitt told the magazine. “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. It was really special.”
