Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are adding their star power to the list of Hollywood celebrities urging Americans to vote in Tuesday's midterm elections.

“So much is at stake,” DiCaprio says in a video released Friday by NowThis, “from gun safety laws, to immigration policy, clean water and air, and whether or not millions of people will have access to healthcare.”

“All of these races and ballot measures are a chance to decide on the direction of our country,” says 43-year-old DiCaprio, who’s been a staunch environmental activist.

“We urge you go to the polls by Nov. 6 and make your voice heard,” says “Fight Club” star Pitt.


“But please don’t stop there,” adds Pitt. “Between now and Election Day, there’s so much you can do to encourage voter turnout, from texting and phone banking to knocking on doors,” Pitt says, while promoting the website, TheLastWeekend.org. The actors both star in Quentin Tarantino’s film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which is poised to be released next year.

DiCaprio and Pitt are the latest A-listers to push get-out-the-vote messages just ahead of the midterms. Countless Hollywood entertainers — from Julianne Moore, to Cher, to Jodie Foster — have appeared in last-minute pitches to encourage voters to head to the polls.

“There’s no denying the importance of this election,” Pitt, 54, tells viewers. “Please, make your voice heard.”
