The Sun got one delectable scoop about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt's friendship. Apparently the two have become good buds off-set and really, REALLY love to make pottery together at Pitt's place. Pitt has been a public enthusiast of the art for some time, since he and Angelina Jolie split in 2016. Now, he's sharing it with DiCaprio, and it has brought the men closer.
“Brad’s got his own sculpting studio at his house, and Leo loves coming over to use it," a source told The Sun. “They sometimes hang out with Brad’s artist pals, but other times it’s just the two of them. Leo brings sandwiches over from their favorite place, Fat Sal’s, and they spend their boys’ nights creating art until the early hours.” Take that in. That's the pure way your boo boo Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt bro out together.
Us Weekly ran more details about Pitt's love of sculpting last month. “It’s very therapeutic for him; it’s his go-to outlet,” a source told the outlet, adding that Pitt spends a lot of his downtime in the studio. “He can get caught up in it and carried away to the point where he doesn’t want to stop.”
Pitt, when he's not working or sculpting, “hangs out with his guy friends,” the source said.
Pitt himself first spoke about sculpting in his 2017 interview with GQ Style and how it has helped him heal after his and Jolie's split. "If I'm not creating something, doing something, putting it out there, then I'll just be creating scenarios of fiery demise in my mind," he said. "You know, a horrible end. And so I've been going to a friend's sculpting studio, spending a lot of time over there. My friend [Thomas Houseago] is a serious sculptor. They've been kind. I've literally been squatting in there for a month now. I'm taking a shit on their sanctity."
Pitt explained sculpting has been "something I've wanted to do for ten years...I'm making everything. I'm working with clay, plaster, rebar, wood. Just trying to learn the materials. You know, I surprise myself. But it's a very, very lonely occupation. There's a lot of manual labor, which is good for me right now. A lot of lugging clay around, chopping and moving and cleaning up after yourself. But I surprise myself. Yesterday I wasn't settled. I had a lotta chaotic thoughts—trying to make sense of where we are at this time—and the thing I was doing wasn't controlled and balanced and perfect. It came out chaotic. I find vernacular in what you can make, rather than giving a speech. I find voice there, that I need."
