Pitt revealed his nickname for DiCaprio during his best actor in a supporting role speech for “Once Upon a Time” at the 2020 Golden Globes. 

“I also have to thank my partner in crime, LDC,” said Pitt. “He’s an all-star, he’s a gent — and I wouldn’t be here without you, man. Thank you.” 

When PeopleTV asked Pitt about the “LDC” nickname, Pitt backtracked a little bit. 

“I don’t know if that’s the official nickname,” Pitt told PeopleTV.

He offered up DiCaprio’s “lover” nickname for the actor instead.

Fans who caught the moment on the red carpet were shocked.

Pitt won the award for best supporting actor at the SAG Awards.

DiCaprio is nominated for best actor at the awards show. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is also nominated for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.
