She'll never let go
"It does really feel as though it's Leo's year and I'm just super excited for him."
And the lovely lady explained that she's not the only one rooting for the acclaimed actor to take home a trophy he's never received before, adding:
"And [there's] the sense of good will behind him, and that everyone wants it for him. You know, people in the streets. It's really really wonderful."
"I think it's real testament to that fact that he's such a lovely person and that people really not only admire him but also really like him and respect him. I feel quite proud of that, it's lovely. I keep getting emotional when I talk about Leo."
Our hearts just can't handle how sweet this is! We just love it when these two support each other because it totally reminds us of Jack and Rose IRL!
Of course, minus the whole freezing-to-death-in-the-ocean thing!
