• On the red carpet for the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Premiere, Leonardo DiCaprio said that he was a fan of HBO’s Euphoria.
• Euphoria stars and fans reacted accordingly.
• Once Upon a Time in Hollywood marks DiCaprio’s first movie in four years.
This week’s release of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood marks Leonardo DiCaprio’s first movie in four years, when he appeared in The Revenant—the movie and role that finally won him his elusive Oscar (he was previously nominated four times without winning). Now that he’s back with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, he’s been making the rounds, appearing on the cover of Esquire and in a major THR profile, among other things. Most importantly, though, he’s shared that he absolutely loves HBO’s teen drama Euphoria.
Talking to Variety on the red carpet of the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere, he quickly told the interviewer what he’d been watching lately. “I just saw Euphoria, which is amazing,” he said. “That show is amazing.”

Euphoria, of course is produced by A24, the production company also behind acclaimed and buzzy indie films like Moonlight, Midsommar, and Lady Bird, among others.
Another A24 movie is the little-seen comedy Never Goin’ Back, which, like Euphoria, also centers on teens behaving badly. One of the stars of Never Goin’ Back is model/actress Camila Morrone, 22, who you may know is currently dating DiCaprio, 44.
DiCaprio’s simple statement of support for Euphoria didn’t go unnoticed; Zendaya, who plays the lead role of Rue on the show, was speechless—or, as speechless as one can be when sharing something on social media.
Eric Dane, who plays creepy father Cal Jacobs on the show, also shared the video. “Solid Endorsement,” he said.

The show’s official account unabashedly took it all in too:
And those aren’t the only Euphoria-Leo connections, either. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has an enormous and star-studded cast, but one of his many co-stars in that film is Sydney Sweeney, who also stars on Euphoria as Cassie.
How deep will the DiCaprio-Euphoria conspiracy of 2019 go? Probably not much deeper, to be honest. But hey, at least the man has taste.
