The stars of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood interrupted Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue on the way to the movie’s premiere.
There is a clear advantage for late night shows based in Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel Live! takes that advantage one step further by filming across from the Chinese Theatre where movies like Leonardo DiCaprio’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood have their premieres.
In the past, this has meant that some of the biggest names in the movie industry stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live! just hours before they walk the red carpet and do even more interviews across the street. It has also helped Jimmy Kimmel win even more favor with his fans by often sending his entire studio audience along with the stars to the premiere.
Still, after Monday night’s show it looks like the neighborhood can be tricky to navigate. The stars of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood did their best to make it through the crowds to the Chinese Theater. For Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio, that meant taking a shortcut.
You can usually get a pretty good sense of a celebrity’s popularity when he or she walks out in front of a late night audience. Things started pretty high for the Oscar-nominated Margot Robbie and only built up more once Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio walked across the stage.
The three also came out in the order fans are most likely to see them on a late night show. Robbie has been a frequent guest for not only Jimmy Kimmel Live! but also The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Pitt has popped up on The Tonight Show and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in recent years. Leonardo DiCaprio is less likely to find himself on a late night couch these days and seems more at home on Ellen than any other show.
The three actors have been a big reason that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood reviews received so much buzz from the moment director Quentin Tarantino announced the cast. The movie is getting some incredibly positive so it sounds like Tarantino, along with DiCaprio, Pitt, and Robbie, delivered.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters on July 26. A Quentin Tarantino movie doesn’t need much promotion. A movie with Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio really doesn’t need much promotion. Credit Jimmy Kimmel for finding a clever way to still do it while giving his audience a once in a lifetime experience.
