Jacob Elordi revealed Leonardo DiCaprio is a fan of 'Euphoria.'

During his appearance on the Thursday, January 18, episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Priscilla lead, 28, was asked if he knows of any famous Euphoria viewers.

"The biggest one is Leonardo DiCaprio, which sounds like a crazy name drop. And it is a crazy name drop," the Aussie actor spilled.

"He came up to me in a club one time when I was sort of much younger," Elordi recalled. "We're in this club and there's really loud music and everything and he’s like, ‘That shot in the first season, that shot where you came in...’ And it’s him and I in the middle of this club talking about camera angles. We're talking about cinema ..."

"It was amazing. He’s the GOAT [greatest of all time]," the Saltburn star added of the Oscar winner, 49.

The BAFTA Film Awards nominee explained that those projects were part of a "one for them, one for me" deal, meaning that actors will do a mainstream movie and then do something smaller that they're more passionate about.

"That one’s a trap as well. Because it can become 15 for them, none for you," he explained. "You have no original ideas and you’re dead inside. So, it’s a fine dance. My ‘one for them,’ I’ve done it."
