Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio's Friendship

Kate and Leo's Epic Friendship in Their Own Words

The two reunited once more when they hit the red carpet together at the 2016 Oscars. Not only did they pose for pictures outside the event, but the actress was close by Leo's side for his first win.Earlier this year, Kate had a completely endearing reason for why she wouldn't be boycotting the show over the lack of diverse nominees telling BBC, "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."

It's been more than 18 years since Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio met on the set of Titanic, and while their first onscreen relationship ended tragically, Kate and Leo's love has lived on in the years since. The two stars, who shared the big screen again in 2008's Revolutionary Road, have remained close friends for more than 20 years. In that time, they've had nothing but sweet things to say about each other — Leo has called Kate the "best actor of her generation" — and smiley red carpet photo ops! Let's take a look at their amazing friendship through the years.

It all started with Titanic in 1997. Kate and Leo turned 21 and 22, respectively, while making the movie. Their onscreen chemistry was undeniable, which Leo addressed in a 1997 interview with Entertainment Tonight: "She's such a terrific person in general that our chemistry naturally happened on screen. We just like each other as people. As far as doing a love scene, though, we laughed about it a lot."
