Leonardo DiCaprio Recalls Seeing River Phoenix the Night He Died
Quentin Tarantino's new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood celebrates the bygone era of 1960s Tinseltown, which is much different than today. Star Leonardo DiCaprio came up in the 90s era, which is also quite a bit removed from the modern day world of filmmaking. While talking about his own early experiences in Los Angeles, trying to make it as a teen star, he recalled seeing his idol River Phoenix on the same day that the actor died.

Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed that he was one of the last people in Hollywood to see River Phoenix alive but the chance encounter was short lived, and DiCaprio didn't actually get to speak to Phoenix, who was considered one of the best actors of his generation. Leo describes the moment as 'ominous and sad' and has carried it with him through his own career as a cautionary tale of what not to become.
