Interior designer and former Flipping Out star Megan Weaver has opened up about the time she stayed at Leonardo DiCaprio's Malibu beach house in the 1990s, which was, apparently, covered in Titanic memorabilia.

Speaking on the podcast Behind the Velvet Rope, Weaver opened up about staying at DiCaprio's home in the late 1990s when the star was out of town and fresh off of his Titanic fame.

“When I was working for Leo, his mom [Irmelin Indenbirken] let me – his mom was so sweet – let me stay at his beach house in Malibu for the weekend,” she said. “I was dating somebody who was living in Canada, having a long-distance relationship and he came to town, and so they let me have the beach house.”

She added, “I didn't tell him where we were going and we walk into this beach house and everything was Titanic. Titanic towels, Titanic posters, Titanic everywhere. And so, [my boyfriend] did look at me and was like, 'Is this Leo's house?' And I was like, 'Yes this is Leo's house.' So that was pretty amazing."

For context, though, Weaver explained that the furniture in the house “was very tasteful”.

“I don't think that's something he would do now, but back then…again, this was like the '90s," Weaver continued. "I think the film wasn't even that old [yet]. It was also not his main house, and he hardly went there, so I think it was probably his mom who did it.”

Despite the teen-centric decor, Weaver's stay still sounds deeply relaxing: “It was the best bed I ever slept in in my life.”
