As for who the actress will bring to the ceremony, she already has one dream date in mind: The real life Alice Ward.
“It would be super for her to go with me,” she tells USA Today. “But I don’t know if the doctors will think that’s a good idea.”
The 80-year-old suffered cardiac arrest earlier this month and stopped breathing for a full 30 minutes before regaining consciousness and quite literally, coming back to life.
“She’s in a fragile condition in a Boston hospital,” Leo adds. “So a shout-out to Alice, much love and all strengths.”
Tune in on Feb. 27 to see if Ward makes it to the ceremony. Now that would be great TV.
