Hollywood’s favorite besties couldn’t resist a hug backstage after Leo was awarded his very first Oscar. Kate was so happy for Leo!
It was Leo’s night, and Kate was right by his side. After Leo made one amazing speech that left Kate in tears, he reunited with Kate backstage. The two hugged and took in the epic moment together. Kate couldn’t help but show her love for her friend, and Leo looked so happy Kate was around to experience this monumental win with him.
Not surprisingly, both Kate and Leo looked incredible for the big night, with Leo sporting a dapper suit and Kate rocking a black Ralph Lauren dress. They posed for pictures together on the red carpet, and it was amazing. These two know what the people want!
Leading up to the Feb. 28 ceremony, all of the hype was surrounding Leo and his first Oscar win. After being snubbed by the Academy five times before he was nominated for his role in The Revenant, Leo fans were eager to see if this was finally going to be his year — and Kate was right there with them! When she was asked whether the #OscarsSoWhite controversy would keep her from attending the awards, Kate pointed out that Leo was one of the biggest reasons she couldn’t miss it!
“I feel very strongly that it may possibly be Leo’s year, and he is my closest friend in the world and I just couldn’t imagine not being there to support him,” she said at the premiere of her film Triple 9. We couldn’t be happier for Leo and his first Oscar victory…but we’re even happier that these adorable Kleo pics now exists!
