Long-time best friends Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire donned matching grey outfits to catch the boat to Le Club 55 beach gastrobar in Saint-Tropez this week.
Both the stars were joined on the boat by Tobey’s ex-wife Jennifer Meyer, from who he separated in 2020 after nine years of togetherness.
Leonardo was wearing a face mask, probably more to not reveal his famous identity than to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Maguire and DiCaprio – both LA natives – initially met in 1990 and went on to co-star in Michael Caton-Jones’ 1993 drama.
This Boy’s Life, R.D. Robb’s 2001 drama Don’s Plum, and Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 remake The Great Gatsby.
On June 23, the 45-year-old jewellery designer admitted it was a lot of work’ to successfully co-parent their 15-year-old daughter Ruby Sweetheart and 13-year-old son Otis Tobias with the Spider-Man: No Way Home actor.
‘It was a change, and I was getting it, like, the universe wants this for me, but the work is bad’, Jennifer confessed on The World’s First Podcast.
We chat about our other half like, “Hey, do you have kids? I’m going away for the weekend. Now it’s like, “Hey, I’m having a rough day”, or “Hey, you did it; it pissed me off.” I can do anything for him. I can’t even explain. He is my brother. I love him to death.’
Tobey executive produced and will play Charlie Chaplin in Damien Chazelle’s Golden Age of Hollywood 1920s Babylon, which opens in US cinemas on December 25 and UK cinemas on January 6.
The drama about the transition from silent films to talkies also stars Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Flea, Lukas Haas, Eric Roberts, Olivia Wilde, Spike Jonze, Jean Smart, Chloe Fineman and Jeff Garlin.
The Oscar winner is starring as rancher Ernest Burkhart in Martin Scorsese’s 1917 drama Killers of the Flower Moon, which will release later this year.
The Paramount Pictures and Apple Studios film stars Robert De Niro, John Lithgow, Jesse Plemons, Brendan Fraser and Lily Gladstone.
Leonardo has acted in movies like the Killers of the Flower Moon, his sixth film with the 79-year-old filmmaker, following The Wolf of Wall Street, Shutter Island, The Departed, The Aviator and Gangs of New York.
Thick as thieves: Maguire and DiCaprio, each from LA, met in 1990 and later starred in Michael Caton-Jones’ 1993 drama This Boy’s Life, R.D. Robb’s 2001 drama Don’s Plum and Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 remake of The Nice Gatsby.
Since the day they first met, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire became best friends. “I seriously jumped out of the car,” DiCaprio recalled. “I shouted, ‘Tobey! Tobey! Hey!’ And he said, ‘Oh, yes – I know you. You’re the guy.’ But I just made him a friend. If I want someone to be my friend, I will make them my friend.”
It’s not exactly the happiest start, but since then, they have been friends for a very lengthy period. The pair acted together on This Boy’s Life, a second time on the indie film Don’s Plum, and reunited for the big screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby. A fourth collaboration is more than a certainty.
