Starring in the upcoming flick J. Edgar alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Lea Thompson gushed exclusively to OK! on Monday night of how hunky the Titanic star really is in person and just why he would be a good catch for any woman.

“Well for me talent is the ultimate aphrodisiac, and then he has got the looks and the money and the body!” the Red Dawn actress joked to OK! while out at the Hollywood Film Awards presented by Starz of why Leo, recently linked to Blake Lively, is such a great catch.

Although she was only on set of the Clint Eastwood drama for one day, Lea, 50, coincidentally, had met Leonardo in the past.

“I had met him before because my husband did a Kraft Macaroni and Cheese commercial with him.  That’s how long I have been around,” Lea explained to OK! at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, “I think I even brought it up, which I don’t think he appreciated, maybe he did.”

Jokes aside, Lea says that working with the 36-year-old, “was one of the most amazing days of my life!”
