Ariana DeBose and Leslie Odom Jr. Had the Cutest Hamilton Reunion at the Oscars

Leslie Odom Jr. and Ariana DeBose’s mini Hamilton reunion at the Oscars just made my night. While doing interviews with nominees during the preshow on Sunday night, Ariana shared a sweet moment with her former Broadway costar when she spoke with Leslie about his role in One Night in Miami. As soon as he stepped on the red carpet, she brilliantly referenced lyrics from the musical, saying, “Look at where you are, look at where you started,” which got a chuckle from Leslie. “That’s a good one,” he said about the Hamilton nod. “Sometimes I don’t like them. That one I liked.” While Leslie is well-known for originating the role of Aaron Burr in Hamilton, Ariana played the role of the Bullet. Like Ariana said, the two have certainly come along way since then. Not only is Leslie an Oscar-nominated actor, but Ariana is set to take on the iconic role of Anita in the West Side Story remake. See their cute exchange above.
