Leo DiCaprio’s wife requirements: must be a basketball-loving model

Leonardo DiCaprio and Erin Heatherton have been together the same amount of time as Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling. It’s been about eight or nine months since Leo basically thumbed through the Victoria’s Secret catalog and ordered her. But eight months is nothing to scoff at – it’s a decent amount of time with a man who at best is a serial monogamist (ha) and at worst is a stinky, non-deodorant-wearing, womanizing commitment-phobe. Leo does seem pretty low-key with Erin – they even stepped out for a bike ride photo op last week. So is Erin “the One”? HAhahahahaha. I mean… hahaha. Oh, that was a serious question. Is she the One? Star Mag thinks she might be – because she loves basketball and so does Leo. OMG WHAT AN AMAZING CONNECTION.

Leonardo DiCaprio has certainly dated his fair share of gorgeous models in the past, but Leo is currently putting a full-court press on his latest love, Erin heatherton. Leo and Erin first hooked up last winter in NYC, after he spotted her at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and they’ve been an item ever since. But might she actually be The One?

“Up until now, Leo’s ladies have been prissy, girly types,” says a source. “But when he met Erin, he realizes he had found not only a beautiful woman but a talented athlete as well! Erin loves sports and in fact was headed for a career as a basketball player when a modeling agent approached her on a Miami beach seven years ago.”

Erin played basketball in high school, and she planned to attend college on a basketball scholarship before a career in modeling came calling.

“Leo is also a huge basketball fan,” says the source. “he has a full court at his home in LA, and is a Lakers season ticket holder. Whenever he and Erin are together they are always doing something physical, like hiking in nearby canyons, riding their mountain bikes or playing ball together. They never run out of fun activities to do.”

“Leo has been a real holdout when it comes to getting married,” says the pal. “But with a girl like Erin, who has beauty brains and can shoot hoops… he may finally have found his future wife!”

Yeah, I really don’t think the biggest problem in all of Leo’s relationships up to Erin was that the girls didn’t give a crap about basketball. But far be it from me to pontificate on the importance of sports in a man’s life – I really couldn’t care less. I’ve considered dumping my imaginary husband Michael Fassbender because I find his hobbies (cars, racing) boring. We don’t have to share everything, you know? That’s how I rationalize it. Anyway, about Leo and the possibility that Erin is “the One”. I want to give that girl a hug. Poor Erin.

PS… We really need to discuss Leo’s creepy wax figure. OMG IT’S SO CREEPY. There, we discussed it.

    I’ve been saying that for a while now: he chooses his girlfriends from Victoria’s Secret’s catalogue.

  2. oh, please says:

    1. Star Magazine. To me that says it all about the credibility.
    2. Gisele wasn`t a typical `girlie girl`.
    3. Leo getting married to a panty model because she loves basketball? Thanks for the joke!!!!

  3. Violet says:

    Why does the wax figure look lke Chace Crawford?

  4. oh, please says:

    One more thought. Leo is a well known bachelor who doesn`t show the sing of settling down. But every time he starts dating someone new within months you have stories about marriage. I don`t get it…

    • Maguita says:

      Not to sound insensitive, but Leo will never settle down, let alone grow up, before his mother dies, and he gets his heart broken AFTER his mother had passed away.

      She had raised a very self-serving brute, who is desperately trying to sell us a sensitive and caring man/boy image, so we can FINALLY give him a damn Oscar!

      His cheating on his “girlfriends” is legendary, his “pus*y-Patrol Posse” with their insensitively profligate Hollywood adventures are at best misogynist.

      This self-serving man/boy needs to lose his mamma first, who has up to now immensely encouraged his unequaled conceit and egocentricity, and grow the f-ck up to finally become a man.

      Until then, any woman with self-respect would stay the f-ck away.

      Or negotiate an iron-clad, equally self-serving pre-nup agreement.

    “But far be it from me to pontificate on the importance of sports in a man’s life – I really couldn’t care less.”

    “I really couldn’t care less.” Hooray, an American finally gets that phrase correct. It shits me to tears when people, particulalry Americans, say “I could care less.”

    As for Leo, he’s the new Mick Jagger and he’s going to wind up being a dirty old man who makes unwanted advances on college girls in bookstores, just like Jack Nicholson.

    • Steve says:

      That’s true.
      It is also beats my imagination as to why people write “could OF, should OF, would OF” to mean “could HAVE”. And “your” to mean “you’re” as in “you are”

    • Zelda says:

      I’ve heard loads of British people use the phrase wrong too. So you don’t have to be an asshole about it.

      Signed,
      A non-American who hates when Brits act as though they have superiour linguistic skills

      For your perusal: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/pretentious

      • lu says:

        I’m British and I have never heard a single British person say it the wrong way.

        Also why do you assume the person complaining about American incorrect use of English is British. There are many English speaking countries filled with people who speak it correctly.

        We don’t need to “act” as if we have superior (there’s no “u” in it) linguistic skills, you make it so easy for us to be superior. Why don’t you peruse that dictionary site a little more.

    • Angela R says:

      When a person says “I could care less” they are being sarcastic. Fairly obvious.

      • Fleur says:

        I actually think what the poster is implying is the expression is used incorrectly. It should be: “I couldNOT care less.” Rather than saying the habitually used “I COULD care less.”

        Saying you “could NOT” care less implies you’re in a state of caring zero. you care to the minimum amount.

        “I could care less” means you could at some point care less than you do now at the present— meaning you care.

        It’s a phrase a lot of people misuse.

      • Angela R. says:

        Yes Fleur, I understand what the original commenter was trying to say. My point is that when a person says “I couldn’t care less” they are being literal, and when a person says “I could care less” they are being sarcastic. Both are fine in casual conversation.

    • Maguita says:

      “It shits me to tears when people, particulalry Americans, say “I could care less.”

      You mean, it isn’t as classy as someone commenting on an American site, by shitting on Americans?

      Huh.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      You what sh-ts ME to tears? When someone writes “particulalry” instead of PARTICULARLY while sanctimoniously commenting on the grammatical errors of others. But then again, what do I know? I’m just a dumb American.

      • Chris says:

        Typos aside my point stands. And no people aren’t being sarcastic when they say “I could care less” they’re just ignorant. I don’t mean to pick on Americans but they seem to say I could care less a lot more than people here in Australia do.

        “I’ve heard loads of British people use the phrase wrong too. So you don’t have to be an asshole about it.”

        Yes I do. Being an asshole is what gives me my edge. Without out it I’d just be another inoffensive bore like 95% of the population. Seriously imagine going through life only saying things that people agreed with. I can’t do it. I won’t.

        “Saying you “could NOT” care less implies you’re in a state of caring zero. you care to the minimum amount.

        “I could care less” means you could at some point care less than you do now at the present— meaning you care.

        It’s a phrase a lot of people misuse.”

        Spot on, Fleur. Beautifully put.

        BTW, excuse the different avatars one is from my work computer the other is from my home computer.

      • janie says:

        Chris, it’s possible to be interesting without being an asshole. You’re not giving yourself an “edge”, you’re making yourself stand out as a “particulalry” negative person.

        Yes, grammatical mistakes are annoying, but there are stupid people in every country. If stereotypes were to be believed, all Americans are fat and stupid, and all Australians are crocodile-wrestling thieves. Don’t generalize an entire population based on the handful you’ve met or seen on TV.

  6. Sisi says:

    this reminds me, I forgot to put deodorant on this morning!

  7. Sabrine says:

    This is a guy who doesn’t want to part with any of his money in a marital break-up. He’s not marrying anyone.

  8. I.want.shoes says:

    She looks like every other girlfriend he’s had-they are completely interchangeable. Probably gets mixed up about their names too.

  9. Madpoe says:

    Yeah. Miss Erin is “the one” for right now! Perhaps until the next big issue of Victoria Secrets comes out.

  10. Eleonor says:

    She looks a lot like Bar Rafaeli.

  11. Rhea says:

    So basically he wants a supermodel-athlete. What’s next? Supermodel-maid??? Supermodel-mom?? :D

  12. Talie says:

    I’m not her biggest fan, but I completely believe that if Blake still wanted to be dating him, she would be. And she didn’t seem into any sports.

  13. Kay says:

    lol leo has a type but he’s hardly a commitment phobe. His relationships with gisele and bar lasted several years.. probably as long as some hollywood marriages. He’s never going to get married and he doesn’t need to tbh. I don’t understand why any celeb would get married. The only reason why anyone would get married is for the financial benefits. You don’t need a certificate to prove that you love someone.

    • lol says:

      If he is not a commitment phobe then why isn`t he married to Gisele or Bar? Because he took off when it turned serious. Get real!

      • Kay says:

        commitment =/= getting married

        he was with those two for 5-6 years each. It’s not like he hasn’t had long term relationships.

        and he hasn’t always dated younger women. He dates models in general and most models tend to be in their 20s. During the titanic days, he dated helena christensen and naomi campbell and they are both older than him.

  14. Kay says:

    and I like Erin a lot. I kind of roll my eyes at the people who think all models are dumb. I follow her on twitter and she seems like a cool girl. Leo is lucky to have her tbh.

  15. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Does anyone else find his modelizing pathetic? I don’t even think it’s gross so much as it is pitiful. Makes me wonder if he has any true connections with women or if he just needs a hot piece on his arm. Seems sort of sad.

    PS. Whenever I see pics of him now I just think of that tab story about Leo’s meltdown, locking himself in his trailer after Blake dumped his ass. Probably not true but I kinda wish it was….

  16. morganowski says:

    When I see leonardo, all I can see is Jack Nicholson. He is slowly morphing into him, even his facial expressions.

  17. Rhiley says:

    Leo’s starting to look a little like Worf from Star Trek.

  18. marie says:

    lol even judy zipper looks more like leo than this wax statue

  19. T.C. says:

    He is never going to get married. Needs to be single to upgrade his girlfriends when they get close to age 30. Must have access to women in their early 20′s.

  20. ladybert62 says:

    Isnt he also the one that still lives with mommy? So I guess his potential bride better like living with mommy!

    I have no idea what any woman sees in this man – besides his money!

  21. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Whatever makes him happy. Like George Clooney, both are great actors, both just want these kind of short term relationships. It does make me look at them slighly different, like I wonder if they have close female friends, or if they are afraid of having deep relationships with women, but that’s personal life and I don’t let it interfer with my enjoyment of their movies.

  22. Francesca says:

    and doesn’t mind if he sees other women… that qualifier should go on the list.

  23. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    “Leo DiCaprio’s wife requirements: must be a basketball-loving model …”

    … and male.

  24. Bec says:

    She looks A LOT like Blake Lively.
    I read in the comments that Leo still lives with his mom — Is that true?

  25. dizzy says:

    Wow, he really aims high with those wife requirements (that’s even if he’ll ever marry).

  26. normades says:

    When is that Gatsby mess coming out? This story sounds like it came straight from Leo’s PR team.

  27. twoblues says:

    What’s on the tip of her nose? I guess with that body few people even notice her nose.

  28. lisa2 says:

    I just never got the attraction for Leo. As many noted I find him a man/child as well. I was always much more impressed with River Phoenix. Don’t know much about Leo before What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.

    I find him a lot like George. More asexual to me. George can be with any number of women and I never get a sexual vibe with him or any of them. It is the same with Leo. I don’t see any warmth or sexual tension with them and any of the women they are with.

    And I am on the side of Blake walking away. I think she found what most of the women didn’t. That Leo is immature and she was looking for a man. I will be more impressed with Stacy if she walked away before George sends her away. But don’t see that happening. Blake I think is smarter then people gave her credit for. And Leo met his match.

  29. Maya says:

    Apparently Erin is 23, but she kind of looks like she could pass for 5 years younger, doesn’t she? I don’t know; maybe it’s just me, but every time I see a picture of her my first thought is, “HOW old is she again?”

  30. mewmow says:

    I find it amusing when people make a big deal about him, and George Clooney, being womanizers and and how they go after young woman. Personally, they both are gross and no amount of money could makee me touch them, some women like it and if they want to go in with eyes open, and they do, more power to them.

  31. Moi says:

    You left out the word “male” in your title. Leo DiCaprio’s wife requirements: must be a basketball-loving male model (or Lukas Haas).

  32. Lotta says:

    A friend of mine (who is an italian model) had a one night stand with him when he was an rising star, but she wasn’t to impressed with his skills. However, that was years ago so he could have improved.
    I never found him attractive, he isn’t masculine enough for me.

  33. Candy7468 says:

    You know I used to find Leonardo DiCaprio really hot but he’s gotten really weird looking and old. And he does resemble Jack Nickelson both physically and in the way he acts, although at least Jack can make fun of himself. The womanizing itself doesn’t bother me, since I actually do like George Clooney, but what bothers me is he goes for the same blonde floozey yet he can’t bother to look decent himself. Why does he always look like some bum you see in the park?

    @”I’ve considered dumping my imaginary husband Michael Fassbender because I find his hobbies (cars, racing) boring” : so sad you think Formula One is boring…
