BRAD Pitt weighed in to one of the most controversial movie moments of all time on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards.

The 56-year-old actor – who opened his stage turn with a joke about being an ageing actor on the way out, was on fine form as he then ribbed his Once Upon A Time in Hollywood co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

Referring to Leonardo’s iconic drowning scene in 1997 movie Titanic, Pitt quipped: ” I would have shared the raft.”

The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment happened as he won the trophy for best supporting actor in a musical or comedy for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

He spoke warmly of his co-star, revealing his nickname for him, saying: “I want to thank my partner-in-crime, LDC.”

He continued: “You know, before The Revenant, I used to watch, year after year, his co-stars accept awards and get up and thank him profusely. I know why. He’s an all-star, he’s a gent, and I wouldn’t be here without you, man. I thank you.”

Fans were delighted by the joke on Twitter.

“Brad calling Leo ‘LDC’ and getting off a TITANIC joke = absolute legend,” @AgeofIrony tweeted.

Another Twitter user, called it a “chefs kiss” moment (aka, perfect). “Brad Pitt making a Titanic joke during his #GoldenGlobes acceptance speech? *chefs kiss*” @hmmconcannon wrote.

“’Still, I would’ve shared the raft.’ – Legend Brad Pitt to Leo DiCaprio re: TITANIC controversy- and thus proving why he’s a legend,” @Lulamaybelle wrote on Twitter.

Pitt also acknowledged his own parents. “They’re back in the Ozarks,” he said. “I wanted to bring my mom but I couldn’t because any woman I stand next to they say I’m dating, and it would just be awkward.” The camera panned straight to his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, to see her reaction to the joke

Pitt also acknowledged his own parents. “They’re back in the Ozarks,” he said. “I wanted to bring my mom but I couldn’t because any woman I stand next to they say I’m dating, and it would just be awkward.”

The camera panned straight to his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, to see her reaction to the joke – who laughed.

Aniston and Pitt were married for five years from 2000 to 2005. Aniston split from Justin Theroux in 2017, and Pitt divorced Angelina Jolie in 2016.

“Thank you to the camera person who panned to Jennifer Aniston during this Brad Pitt line,” one delighted fan wrote.
