Leonardo DiCaprio tells fan that he’s ‘never done cocaine in real life’


Leonardo DiCaprio brought his mother as his date to the Golden Globes, because of course he wouldn’t bring the woman (women?) he’s really dating. His mother is his girl. She parties with him, she supports him 100%, and she’s probably the reason he has so many unhealthy relationships with women. Anyway, after the Globes, Leo stopped in to The Weinstein Company’s Globes party, and I think he was either riding solo or his mom just didn’t pose for photos with him. Then, after that party, Leo hit up the CAA after-party and suddenly, there was Toni Garrn. I really thought Leo and Toni were done months ago – Leo has been acting single-ish, spending time with Miranda Kerr and other ladies, and I just thought Toni had been pushed aside. Apparently not, though. He told her to meet him at the after-after-party and that’s what she did, and some paparazzo caught them kissing. So now you know. Toni and Leo are still a thing.

Also, I came across this interesting little Page Six story which I do not believe whatsoever. I mean, I guess I believe that Leo might have said this, but I don’t believe HIM.

Leo DiCaprio may play the ultimate drug-dabbling bad boy in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but the actor insists he has never touched cocaine himself.

Leo was approached by an excitable female fan at BAFTA LA’s Saturday Golden Globe Awards pre-party at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, who told him: “I bet playing that role put you off cocaine forever!”

DiCaprio coolly replied: “I’ve never done it in real life.”

The superstar, 39, has been getting some of the best reviews of his career for playing coke- snorting Quaalude-dropping stockbroker Jordan Belfort in the film.

[From Page Six]

Yeah. Think about how much Leo has partied in his life. Think of the P-ssy Posse and how long and how hard they’ve been riding together, basically since the mid-1990s. That’s nearly two decades of international partying, womanizing, drinking, smoking and yes, drugging. I just don’t believe that Leo has never even TRIED cocaine. I’ve never tried cocaine but I’ve lived a pretty sheltered life and I’ve only been offered it a handful of times. Think of how Leo parties and how often he’s been offered a line, a bump, whatever. I just don’t believe him.

    I love him so much, but yeah right, Leo.

  2. Lori says:

    I do believe him on the coke. ANd I don’t think much of the guy’s life style. But I did read an article once where he talked about River Phoenix and said that was the reason he wouldn’t try the “hard stuff”. Its believable. Same reason a lot of people his age wouldn’t try it, me included. Now days I don’t know if kids are as strongly influenced by a celebrity drug overdose?!?

    • blue marie says:

      I don’t buy that, I’ll believe that he’s never tried heroin but not coke, dude’s got some serious puffy face at times, *shrugs* but maybe not. I tried various ones when I was younger but stayed away from the heroin because RDJ was so honest about it and it scared the crap out of me.

    • Rhiley says:

      I believe him as well. I think he is a big time drinker, but not into drugs. I think if he has tried it, he’d own it.

      • JessMa says:

        He is full of crap. One of my closest friends worked for that disgraced money manager in New York that is in prison now. Sorry I forgot his name, but you can Google him. Leo was one of his most prominent clients. Well this guys had tons of celebrity clients and hosted lots of parties. My friend had amazing pictures and stories. He said he had snorted with Matt and Ben a couple if times. He said Matt was very nice and Ben kind of arrogant, but still friendly. He said Courtney Cox was breathtaking in real life, this was the 90s. He said Cameron Diaz was not attractive at all, but was very sweet and always investing money for her mom. The one story I remember the most was that Leo was a huge cokehead. He said he saw lots of celebrities do it occasionally, but Leo was a pro. My friend got high with him several times, but said he could not keep up with him. This all happened a long time ago so he probably cleaned up his act.

      • nebi says:

        Well, drinking and smoking are very often associated with coke.

    • Snarkweek says:

      I am not completely sure I believe him but I will at least allow that it is possible that he has never done the hard stuff. Not that drug use is a racial thing but in my experience a lot of black people really do not care for much beyond alcohol and marijuana, with the occasional ecstasy thrown in here and there for clubbing. Leonardo has been friends with and partied with tons of rappers, professional athletes, models and other celebrities from the black community for a long time now so maybe that stigma has prevented him from diving into the hard stuff headfirst. Just speculation of course, LOL, who really knows?
      But really, when a random fan starts quizzing him about drugs what exactly is he supposed to say? Of course he will deny it.

      • V4Real says:

        Haven’t you heard that coke is no longer just the White man’s drugs. There are plenty of Black entertainers and atheletes who are using cocaine. Just like there are White people who use crack which was deemed the Black People’s drug, thanks to Frank White.

        But like you said I don’t think he would fess up to it just because he was asked about it. Let’s remember Whitney Houston denied ever using drugs until she finally had to admit to it. So you are right in saying that celebrities who use will not own up to it as if it’s a right of passage.

      • Snarkweek says:

        All good points, V. For real :)

  3. Tessa says:

    Weren’t Toni and Leo photographed at the beach just a few weeks ago over New Years?

    Anyway… Leo talks a lot about watching a lot of the child actors he came up with die due to drugs. I think drugs scare him. He’s got too much going for him to burn out. I think he’s always believed that.

  4. Lark says:

    I love Leo but hahahhahahhaa at this. Page Six is still a gossip column and gets shit wrong all the time, or Leo is lying.

    • jensies says:


      95% of the celebrities in Hollywood have done a little blow. It’s a party drug, a social drug, and that’s all they do.

      I don’t know if I’d prefer they be honest about it, or if I prefer these boldfaced lies, because I think that if kids knew how many of their heroes did this, it would just encourage so many more of them to try these things.

    • moot says:

      Easier to believe Leo is lying. The infamous partier never did coke? In Hollywood? in NYC club scene? Come. On.

      Realistically, imagine yourself a well-recognised celebrity with not a little papparazzi interest, who enjoys partying around the world and is also well known for that. You’ve also been known to be rude to fans in public. Some stranger tries to chat you up and assumes you’ve done coke. Do you:

      a) Admit it and laugh: Haha, yup, the movie made me sick of coke.
      b) Deny it and shoo away the a*hole presuming to know your life: I’ve never done coke, you presumptuous twit, and now I’m done talking to you.

      I’m going to say B is the more likely scenario.

  5. Sarah says:

    why dont you believe him? just because? there is no reason to believe that he does hard drugs.

    • Lucrezia says:

      I’m like Kaiser, I live a pretty sheltered life, and still been offered cocaine a few times.

      Each time, the person offering was completely and utterly stunned by my polite refusal. The obvious implication is that nearly everyone says yes.

      Honestly, the level of surprise was as if I’d said I don’t like chocolate: “What, really? You don’t like it? Are you dieting? No? You’re allergic then … omg, I’m so sorry for you! No, not allergic? You simply don’t want any? How strange! That’s fine, more for me … but how strange!”

      Let’s say it’s true and it’s because he was deeply affected by River’s death … that’s a terribly awkward thing to explain to a random person at a party who’s offering you a line. So even though there’s no overt peer pressure in the sense of “you have to try this, or you’re a loser”, there’s indirect/subtle pressure because there’s no easy way to say no.

      It’s possible DiCaprio is saying no, and sticking to it, but it would be extremely unusual for someone who parties that much, and in those circles.

      • Lori says:

        I doubt very much Leo finds it necessary to explain himself to anyone in his social circles. If he says no thank you I’m pretty sure that’s enough for the people he hangs with. He’s the dominate one is his peer group and always has been. I doubt anyone ever tried to peer pressure the king of the world.

    • moot says:

      More like I find it implausible he would admit he does/did coke to a random fangirl.

      Of course he denied it. Of course he wants to make himself look good in front of who-knows-who. She could’ve been a papparazzi plant. If I were him, I’d say the same thing, even if I just did a line in the bathroom 2 minutes ago.

      And you really want to put Leo up as a man of integrity? The man who honoured Belfort last week at a speaking engagement?

  6. Alina says:

    i have to ask am i the only one who thinks Leo + Bradley Cooper? They would make such a great couple! If you google pics of them togehter… don´t know but they seem so intimate… ok maybe it´s just a bromance.

    Leo and Bradley at the Golden Globes:

  7. Aussie girl says:

    I call bullshit. I think he is weary of drugs and the traps. But I don’t believe him and his posse never partake.

    • T.C. says:


      Some people do coke here and there without being addicts. I’m sure Leo and his group have partied with coke, let’s be real many people in Hollywood have.

      Toni looks taller than Leo in that picture. He has to look up to meet her eyes. Girl must be super tall.

  8. k says:

    As a kid he lived in a really rough part of LA surrounded by addicts, and saw River Phoenix the night he died, just before it happened. I believe him that he was turned off and never tried it, some people have strong self control and I can see him being one of them.

    • Stormsmama says:

      I def believe he’s always had a bigger picture plan for his life, his work, his success and his legacy. And he keeps his shot locked down tight. And coke creates paranoia, liars, users and drama. It’s entirely possible he partied a bit when he was younger but locked it down a long long time ago. It is also possible he just never did coke. And thinks coke is for losers or loners. He’s got a strong woman (his mom) who has always held him to a high standard. Maybe he had the self esteem and gratitude to avoid that stuff. I mean look at his career. It’s possible.

  9. Boxy Lady says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Leo is starting to resemble the host of Inside the Actors’ Studio?

  10. Mark says:

    You’d think everyone on site was an girlfriend the way people talk about , it’s odd behavior and loads of celebrity males don’t want to be seen with their girlfriends in public or at awards shows, how does this mean he has a shitty relationship with women? Because he isn’t married or have kids? It’s better that he lives his life rather than get married and do a Tiger Woods or a Bill Clinton.

  11. Jill says:

    His mom looks like a slightly older version of Jimmy Fallon’s wife in that last pic.

  12. Mari says:

    That poor guy in the kissing photos. Maybe it’s the angle but it looks like if it turned his head, it would be a three-way kiss.

  13. Mari says:

    I’m slightly older than Leo and have never used cocaine. When I was 16, basketball player Len Bias died of a cocaine overdose and I remember thinking, “Wow, you can die from using coke just once!” His death actually had a big impact on my perception of cocaine.

  14. TWINK says:

    I don’t know if I believe him. I’ve been offered to try it, even while drunk and I never did, I really value my looks.

  15. BettyBlue says:

    I can believe it. Some crowds party really hard on alcohol and pot but have a stigma about moving on to hard drugs. It really depends on your group dynamics and lots of hard partiers have phobias about drugs. I partied a lot across several continents for over a decade and never tried coke though it was freely available. It was just that line into stupidity that I couldn’t cross.

  16. epiphany says:

    I forget who said it, but an actor once said, “you can’t believe anything an actor says. Acting is a form of lying, and we lie for a living!” He may not do them now, but when he was younger, I’m sure he tried all kinds of drugs.
    And you bet his mom has ruined him for a normal, healthy relationship. He sinks all of his emotional needs into his mom, so all of his relationships with other women (girls) can remain superficial and unimportant. He breaks up with one, oh well, another one takes her place in a matter of days/hours. No pain, no loss, all he needs is a warm body. I think he came close to caring about someone other than his mom when he was with Gisele, and I bet Mom hated the competition. Since then she’s made sure he never gets attached to any of them again.

    • Janie says:

      I think your assumptions about his relationship with his mother are just a wild fantasy. I’m not sure why people would even think this. To me, at most, this bringing his mother just makes him seem like a caring son.

      I also believe he had genuine feelings for Bar Refaeli. I still miss them as a couple.

  17. hadleyb says:

    His face tells me he’s lying. Many people have friends / family who died from drugs, it doesn’t make them stop.

    Does seeing your dad or friend drop dead of a heart attack stop people from being fat or eating fast food? Nope.

    But with this lifestyle, his face being busted for the past 10 years .. he’s lying. I think he does drugs and booze an God knows what else. Coke, px pills, are used in Hollywood freely like people use pot freely — if more people had access and money I am sure more every day people would be using too. Everyone wants to feel good.

  18. Pebbles says:

    I kinda believe him too. I remember reading an article on Zac Efron. Leo met with him during the whole High School Musical craze. Efron asked him the secret of success/longevity in film, and DiCaprio told him “just don’t do drugs….” That drugs ruin chances. Obviously, Efron did not listen.

    • Ferdis says:

      I think Leo’s advice was about heroin! Quotting Zac: ““It was kind of his way-out-the-door, last-minute advice. He said, ‘Oh, by the way, if you really want to mess this all up, try heroin. I said, ‘Thanks’, and he said, ‘No, seriously, that’s pretty much the only way you’re going to screw this up, and you shouldn’t go down that road – it will mess you up without fail. Do not do drugs,” the Herald Sun quoted him as saying.”

  19. minime says:

    Maybe he just drank too much after doing it and that’s why he forgot it.

    Ok, Ok, very bitchy, but I don’t believe anything this guy says anyway…his life is full on party mode, I find it difficult to believe. And his “relationships” are just rows of models…not saying that all models do it, but coke is a pretty established drug in the model business…

  20. Sarah says:

    I guess I believe him. Why would he lie? Like what would he gain from it? Also he seems really guarded so I’d buy that he thinks he can stay in control with alcohol and not do hard stuff.

    I’ve always loved Leo but the thing I just can’t understand are his girlfriends nowadays. I saw Toni’s IG photo from golden globes night and I seriously thought she looked like she was 15. I thought to myself it must be an old photo. Nope. She’s very pretty I’m not saying that. She is just a very young woman. It’s creepy to see him with her. Like he could be her dad, right?

  21. Alana says:

    uh…i don’t believe him. and if that is true, then he’s basically saying he’s done everything else but.

  22. xxx says:

    Rumor mill gossip but if anyone remembers Paris Hilton’s coke bust in Las Vegas she had just had dinner in a restaurant with Leonardo a day or two prior and from an employee of the restaurant I heard that he flies his own coke in from Columbia. Again, this is a rumor and I do not know but to me anyone who hangs out with coke heads has definitely at least tried it in the past. Just repeating what I heard, again I have no idea if it’s true.

  23. Happy21 says:

    It doesn’t make sense given his partying lifestyle that he HASN’T done it although maybe he just says no.

    I’d like to think that he has made the choice to not do it. He seems like he is pretty down to earth – no big scandals besides the girls he dates and I’m pretty sure he is extremely professional when he’s working. I just don’t know that he would be as successful as he is without any slip ups if he didn’t stick to his guns on this one.

    I believe he drinks a lot and I’d respect him a ton if this was true. I would imagine as a young dude in Hollywood, it’d have been easy to get swept up in the party scene. He doesn’t really seem to have gone that way ever.

    Nonetheless, no one will ever truly know.

  24. lady mary. says:

    yeah leo thats right u nvr did coke and i nvr drank tea !!!

  25. Nessa says:

    If you look at pictures of him from Coachella last year, he certainly LOOKS coked out. I had a roommate in college (a million years ago because I am ooolllllddd) that was heavy into coke. I wish I had the time to look up the one picture I am talking about. He is all kinds of effed up. Add onto that the fact that he was hanging with Brandon Davis that night (coincidentally Paris Hilton’s ex) who is known to be hard core and basically have the best coke in LA. I’m not saying that it’s definite and he does it for sure, because I don’t. I’m just saying where there is smoke… There is fire.

    Leo is also the kind of celebrity that always says what he thinks he should from a PR standpoint. Even though his actions speak loudly that he is a douche.

  26. Jordan says:

    There is no way he hasn’t done coke recreationally. None Zero Nada LOL

  27. TSwise says:

    You think Leo is heterosexual? You don’t think there is a reason he brings his mom to all of these things? Just like Bradley Cooper?

    He did take his mom to the Weinstein afterparty, as did Bradley Cooper, and they and their mothers sat on white couches talking to each other while bodyguards kept people away from them.

    • lunchcoma says:

      Bringing your mom to events has become a lot more common these days for single male celebrities. Michael Fassbender usually does that as well, and no one thinks he’s gay. I kind of like the trend, and it certainly seems more sensible than a man bringing whatever woman he started dating two weeks ago to a highly public event.

      • I never thought of it that way–I agree. Especially if it isn’t a serious (or exclusive) relationship, so then you got tabloids calling you out for cheating, etc if you’re seen with someone else.

        I think that if I were a celebrity (I would be an amazingly bossy director, I think), I would only bring a date to the awards shows/dinners is if I was married. Other than that, I wouldn’t bother.

  28. Marianne says:

    I think he has it done. Leo is kind of a party boy. If hes not doing now, I think he definitely at least tried it in the 90s. But of course he’s not going to admit it. Who would?

  29. Detritus says:

    Yeah he’s just keeping her around as back-up, as soon as something better(read:newer ) comes along he’s out.

    Look at those kiss photos, she looks smug and he looks bored and like he’s humouring her.
    She’s thinking “I won, he still wants me”
    He’d thinking, “it’s too bad she has to talk”

  30. Maya Dragunova says:

    I don’t get this Leo bashing.
    Why can’t you guys believe him? What would he gain by lying? He obviously is not doing it now. He has never got into trouble before for drug use. He has proved to be very professional actor who cares about his craft. I see no reason why he would risk it.

    As for his relationship with his mother, I wish I have the same kind of relationship with my mother. (and father) I love my parents dearly and they love me but we are not close. I envy this. Its no reason to suspect that he has dysfunctional relationship with women as a result. Further, he has been in long term relationships with few girls. So it is unfair to say that he is bad at relationships.
