No matter how far away he gets from it, Leonardo DiCaprio will always be that guy on the raft/door/table that we'll "never let go" and Brad Pitt wants to make sure it stays that way.
Brad Pitt took home the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in 'Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood' at last night's awards and while giving thanks to his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, or "LDC" as he calls him, Pitt took a shot at the infamous scene from the end of 'Titanic' that remains a bone of contention to this day.
Praising DiCaprio, he said "He's an all-star, he's a gent," before adding "Still, I would've shared the raft."
He also took a moment to give his parents a shoutout, and made an awkward joke about how he wanted to bring his mother but can't for reasons that we'll let him explain.
The reaction to the joke online says it all.

Loved Brad Pitt’s acceptance speech.
It didn’t feel rehearsed. Felt genuine. He thanked Leo, made a great titanic joke, had some fun with his dating life, mentioned his parents.
He also urged people to be kind more often.
Cheers to you. Great speech. #GoldenGIobes
