Leo DiCaprio shows off his vacation weight gain in Miami: would you hit it?


Leonardo DiCaprio has had the summer off. I think he usually paces his projects so he gets summers off, but he’s really been partying a lot this summer in particular. He’s been in Brazil for the World Cup, he’s been in France for the Cannes Film Festival, he’s been in LA with his bros, and now he’s in Miami… not doing much but hanging out on the beach. With his bros, I suspect. I wonder how many of Leo’s friends just get to travel around the world every summer on his dime?

Anyway, as you can see, Leo has not been working out this summer. He is not adhering to any diet either. He doesn’t look so bad when he’s standing up (except for the too-high towel wrap, which is so weirdly modest), but when he’s sitting down… well…it’s kind of noticeable. I’m not actively trying to body-shame him or anything. I mean, hey, he’s on vacation, he’s having a good time, what’s it to me? But just imagine this was a major actress who had “let herself go” while on vacation. These photos would be splashed across every media outlet and then there would be the backlash to the attention, with feminist essays about body-shaming culture and how it hurts women (which is true). But are we going to go through that pattern when it’s Leo? Will these photos of Leo make the cover of People with the headline, “Stop Calling Me Fat!”?

Other Leo stuff… he’s going to produce a TV miniseries about Charles Lindberg. The miniseries was written by Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black. And Leo is fighting with a memorabilia dealer over a signed photo of Leo and Nelson Mandela (which Mandela intended to send to Leo but never got to him).

    Is it me or he’s morphing into Jack Nicholson?? They also have the same spiky eyebrows.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    No, but he lost his appeal to me a long time ago.

  3. Abbott says:

    He looks like he ate Jack Nicholson.

  4. kimbers says:

    No but it’s more about his half pony tail than belly.

  5. lisa2 says:

    I’m not surprised that he looks this way. He has never been a celebrity that had a great body to begin with. I never swooned over him. But I’m sure he will get in shape for work.

    I’m just like WTH that he does so many unhealthy things. He cares so much about the environment; I would think he would care more about his own health

  6. jane says:

    No, but I’m not a young thing on the make for $$ and fame.

  7. Greata says:

    He looks horrible, but Leo can whip himself back into shape ….we have seen that metamorphisis many times. It is his bloody “dumpster diving …I am too precious to be photographed….cept when I want that damm Oscar” attitude I hate.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      I’m the same age as him, the “whipping back into shape” comes much harder these days, trust me! He needs to watch just how much he lets himself go because it’s not going to shift in a month or two the way it once did (I dunno, I don’t have nutritionists and access to personal trainers, maybe it is possible). Always easier for men it seems, but age does take its toll on the metabolism.

      • Mel says:

        I know you didn’t ask for advice, but for the benefit of anyone who might be interested: JUMP or rebound. Easy and fun. (It’s also great for lymph drainage.)
        And intermittent fasting or the 5:2 diet.
        Both work well.

      • Ag-UK says:

        I have been doing 5:2 for over a year and it works me but not for everyone as you need to get past the first couple of weeks and some say hard but I also feel better on my 2 days less food makes ME function better. Plus might have loss 25 lbs but I only get weighed at the dr

      • Mel says:

        I’ve just started the 5:2 two weeks ago, and I love it too. The only thing that is slightly problematic is that my testosterone levels (yes, I am a woman :) ) skyrocket, which is a known side effect of ANY fasting, so I get more aggressive, but also more efficient.

        As for jumping/rebounding, I’ve always loved it – and come to think of it, my figure problems only started when I didn’t do it anymore (I loved jumping and bouncing even as an adult).
        Now I’ve started jumping again and I am thinking about buying a mini-trampoline (though I just love jumping without any equipment – just bouncing off the floor).
        It’s great. Anyone interested in losing weight/toning the body/getting rid of lymph-related problems (like cellulite, partly), should read about it and consider doing it.

        Good luck with your regime! ;)

  8. I Swear says:

    Never found him hot but he’s undeniably good as an actor. From Gilbert Grape to Wolf! I think he just doesn’t care anymore…morphing into Jack Nicholson…and if you google “young Jack” you see that even Jack Nicholson used to look fresh faced…once upon a time.

  9. Ms. Lady says:

    It’s not the physical appearance that is bugging me, it is the way he goes through models that gets me. I would not hit it because he is a douche bag.

  10. GlimmerBunny says:

    I’m a little bit ashamed to admit it but YES!!! Talent is sexy to me (Leo is my favorite actor working today) and a little bit of extra weight doesn’t change that.

  11. jinni says:

    I never got the sexual appeal of this man even in his prime. I don’t care for men with major baby face and his body has never been much to look at. It was always just lanky with no definition or tone of any sort. I’d be more shocked to see BPitt looking like this since he has been known for having a nice body for years and not just a handsome face like Leo.

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    What’s with the little pony tail on the top of his head?

  13. Micha says:

    nope, I wouldnt. just like the mediocre looking girls he ordered in rio, he is just too mediocre looking for me ;)

  14. Ashley says:

    I think Leo’s hair and beard is for his next movie The Revnant with Tom Hardy. I always wonder though how he is able fo get into character before he shoots a movie since he parties so much. To me I find that fascinating.

  15. K-Rock says:

    The beard and the bun are more of an issue to me than his body. Yuk.

  16. Jen2 says:

    Leo always looked like he had a bit too much “baby fat” on his face even as an adult. I have never found him that attractive to begin with. He has a right to let himself go, but it seems odd to see such a young man (not yet forty right?) look so middle aged. The paunch is not that offensive, but the cigarette and odd hair is not quite so nice. If this was a female actor, she would be on the cover of tabloids and berated nonstop, but Leo and most men get “so what, he will get in shape”. Just seems unfair.

  17. Michelle says:

    People still smoke? That’s more unattractive than the awful hair and beard!

  18. Aussie girl says:

    He has never done a thing for me. Even back in the day when I saw titanic twice and thought it was a master piece ( didn’t we all, help me out here). But I’m not going to shade on the guy, his on holidays. I just wish I could not shave my legs or have to waxes if I was on holidays at the beach. I think the thing that does annoy me about him is his perception on women, which is influenced me by his constant choice of never ending models (no shade to models) as girlfriends. It just seems shallow…?

  19. Allie says:

    Titanic Leo exists now only in my memories.

  20. Lara K says:

    I refuse to shame him for a bit of belly. Its not even that much weight.
    But yeah the hair, beard, posture, cigs and booze have to go.
    I still wouldn’t hit it because of the attitude but he’d look hittable.

  21. Patata says:

    Such a coincidence that Leo is in Miami during Miami swim week. There’s probably no other place on the planet with more young, gorgeous models walking around in barely there bikinis.

  22. Lady says:

    I think he looks better in these photos than he ever did when he was younger. He looks like a man now whereas when he was younger he just reminded me of Peter Pan. I never would have thought in a million years he was capable of growing a beard like that! He’s just doing his thing here, no hate from me. Clearly he isn’t working out but I think most people have a pot belly when they sit down, no matter how slender. Has photoshop and clever camera angles really made us that willing to call someone fat for it?

  23. epiphany says:

    It isn’t even the paunch, or the smoking (yuck!) that’s turning me off. He’s on vacation, and doesn’t want to work out – fair enough. It’s just… him. His whole demeanor seems intent on acting 21 when he’s almost 40 – kind of pathetic. My opinion of him would change drastically if he spent a year in a monogamous relationship with a woman his age.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      I wonder about this too – perhaps he wants younger because they won’t control him. He grew up with a single mother, I believe, and maybe he was too controlled so he could be afraid to date his age or older because he doesn’t want to repeat a controlling relationship. Armchair psychology theory Only.

  24. alexc says:

    Isn’t it great he can be fat and out of shape but his girlfriends have to be super thin with perfect bodies. Same as it ever was…

  25. Faye says:

    Ick. To quote Miss Bingley from “Pride and Prejudice” -”The *hair,* Louisa!”

  26. Jess says:

    Well crap, guess I’m the only one who would still hit it!?! Lol, always have and always will love me some Leo.

  27. Marianne says:

    I dont care that he got a little pudgy in the mid-section but I wouldnt bang him anyway. He’s always come across as a little sleazy to me. He’s a great actor though.

  28. Audrey says:

    There’s the whole real women movement pushing to show that we have different body types and all should be accepted

    The same should go for men. This is what most men I know look like. A little pouch. Not a big deal.

    Leave him alone.

  29. GeeMoney says:

    I love Leo… but you couldn’t pay me $1 million to sleep with him. I keep thinking he’s got crabs or something from all of those models that he’s banged.

  30. Tulip says:

    The weight doesn’t bother me, the double standard does.

    The modelizing is sleazy, but for all I know, each model gets compensation, so, fine, everyone is an adult and everyone is equally sleazy.

    The fact that he seems to be morphing into Jack Nicholson, when Jack hasn’t had the best or happiest life really creeps me out. There’s no self identity, in a way.

    But mostly, it’s the effing double standard.

  31. Hissyfit says:

    Eew. He looks gross and smelly.

  32. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Now if Leo and Robin Wright could exchange hairstyles – a pony would make her appear a decade younger and he’d rock the ‘Robin’.

  33. LMB says:

    No, never quite understood why he’s supposed to be atractive.

  34. maybeiamcrazy says:

    I love him as an actor but I wouldn’t hit it. It has nothing to do with belly.I would hit it in Departed era but wouldn’t before or after that. Before his baby face was too pretty, after his face bloated and he became undeniably sleazy.

  35. break says:

    I’m really hoping that he bloats to full Brando in a few years.

  36. Andrea says:

    No. I am not super vain, but this makes him look like Jack Nicholson. This is why I prefer the British actors, they give off a less skeevy vibe. He just looks gross, like that guy in the bar you pray doesn’t come over to you.

  37. M says:

    I wouldn’t even had hit it when he supposedly looked good and fit….so no.

  38. Quinn says:

    If Leo was a woman, he would NEVER get another part in movie- except “funny fat sidekick”. The world just isn’t fair.

  39. smee says:

    I’m sure he just lets himself go between films – I imagine he still gets all the models he wants looking like that. Smoking kills your face – even if he was fit in W of W, his face looked aged.

    Scorsese needs to step away from the Dicaprio. The W of W was SUCH a POS – basically, it was Goodfellas with a different criminal and soundtrack. The only reason it got any buzz was due to the nudity and “names” attached to it. Dicaprio is totally overrated as an actor – give me Daniel Day Lewis every time.

    • Vesta says:

      Ah, Smee, I so agree – especially about W of W. After seeing it with a friend, we discussed the rest of the evening about Scorsese’s odd fascination with DiCaprio. If Scorsese really favors Leo because of his “special talent”, I think he is losing/has lost his touch as an director. W of W kind of proved that – we thought it lacked a fresh point of view and felt like a tired pastiche of his old work. We were truly disappointed.

  40. Nene says:

    Not to be mean but I keep waiting for the day I’d see this headline ‘JACK NICHOLSON IS LEONARDO DICAPRIO’S REAL FATHER!’
    Seriously, the resemblance is uncanny.

    And HELL NO I won’t hit it even with a pole. Give me a six pack and defined pecs anyday like Joe Manganiello’s(sp?) and Chris Hemsworth.
    This might be TMI but I’ve got a thing for tall,musculer and built men like the above.
    On a positive note, Leo is a good actor who takes his job very serious. I watched Django Unchained and The Great Gatsby a few weeks ago and he was really good in both.
    I think he is the kind who burns the candle at both ends – work hard and play hard.

  41. itsetsyou says:

    Honestly, I wish he’d marry already, have a family. The guy seriously looks bored out of his mind.

  42. Ennie says:

    In regards of his looks…
    Before this internet era, where all types of celebs can be photographed, willingly or not any given day, the actors and actresses really had “vacatios” or idle periods where they could stop worrying about their looks for a while, and very commonly get in shape or prepare there appearance before the next film started.
    Nowadays, they are very judged for random pics, and some of those celebs capitalize on this, selling an “image” , like the Kardashians, and others do, for monetary or publicity gain or plain egocentrism, who knows. And there are others who don’t care and mostly don’t participate of the craziness of looking good for pap pics.
    I am not fond of DiCaprio, but criticizing for not looking his best in between films… I do not think is fair. He can be criticized for a long list of things, but not for this. Let other celebs worry about that.

  43. truthful says:

    He looks like a younger Jack Nicholson..twins

  44. Liv says:

    I like Leo he was my heartthrob when I was a kid. But he really has let himself go. The daily mail actively body shamed Lilo who a lot like Leo parties a lot and has let herself go with a big belly.
    Granted Leo is a good actor and much older but I do think there is a double standard. If a 40 something actress Leo’s age, had sported that gut on the beach the knives would be out.

  45. bettyrose says:

    Can you imagine uf a famous woman appeared in pics like this? Theyd be calling her obese and a poor role model.

    • Vesta says:

      Yup. Let’s imagine Kate Winslet (who is the same age & starred Titanic) like this… With a beer belly, greasy hair, smoking a fag and dating very fit young male models.
      Except, oh, wait a minute, I can’t even *imagine* that!

  46. Jenny jenny says:

    I used to be in love with him in Jr High and high school. He was so hot then. And I have been sad that he hasn’t been hot in years. Handsome yes but not gorgeous. But then in watched The Great Gatsby this past weekend for the first time and damn. He looked so good again! His smile totally melted me and I felt the old feelings again. These photos are disappointing. I think he has the ability to turn on the hotness but he chooses not to. Sad.

    • mercy says:

      There were photos of him during the Gatsby filming where he didn’t look like this, but he didn’t much look like Gatsby, either. Everyone deserves not to be bothered on their down time and I don’t expect actors to look like they do on screen, but it shows what clothes, hair, makeup, lighting and even post-production tricks can do.

  47. starfan says:

    Fat, greasy schlub leading men need to go. Yuck!

  48. M.A.F. says:

    To answer the question: NO, I would not “hit it.” I didn’t want to “hit it” when Romeo + Juliet came out & I didn’t want to “hit it” then when Titanic came out. I might have been the only teenager during that time frame who cheer when Rose let Jack go.

    • JWQ says:

      I was 13 when Titanic came out, and I did the same! I did develop a crush on Kate Winslet, though, even though everyone kept telling me that she was fat and bland: I thought she was beautiful, especially with the red hair (I hope she’ ll come back to the red in the nearest future). The same people thought that Di Caprio was a god! Bah! I have never found him attractive (and the gross look he has now doesn’ t help one bit, and my main problem is not the weight but everything else), never liked the characters he played, and I do think he is incredibly overrated.

      The only three movies he was good in, in my opinion, are Gilbert Grape, The Departed and Django Unchained.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I agree on everything you just wrote.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Haha, I only watch Titanic for Kate Winslet–I did not think that Leo was good looking at all. He was way too baby-faced. I like him better now–but damn Leo.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        I was old enough when Titanic came out to find Leo sort of weaselly/boyish (even though we are the same age) for Kate. Titanic and her other 90′s films like Sense and Sensibility, Hideous Kinky etc., made me such a fan of her real shape and kick ass attitude. I feel like she has gotten blander/less original with age, image wise. She has been known to trash her Titanic era style/image which I find really sad because for many non-blonde, non-toothpick young women she was such a great role model. I think she looks better with a bit of meat on her and less peroxide in her hair. She just gets blonder with age, I wouldn’t hold my breathe on the red hair unless it’s for a part.

        Totally agree re: Gilbert, the Departed and Django being Leo’s best parts, though I did like Catch Me if You Can too.

      • JWQ says:

        @Mrs. Darcy: you are so right on Kate Winslet! She still has a curvy body (and I think she looks awesome) but she acts like it’ s a shame nowadays, while back then she was: “I’ m fat for Hollywood standards and I couldn’ t give a lesser damn!”.

        I have never read anything about her trashing how she looked like in Titanic, I have read about her trashing the movie, the director and her acting. In general I don’ t like actors who bite the hand that feeds them, but I loathe Titanic and Cameron so much that I am willing to give her a pass. Now, if she only stopped with the hair bleaching (not necessarily being red again, but definitely not blonde) and the working with rotten pigs like Polanski, I would start loving her again!

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        Maybe I misremembered, could swear I’ve read stuff where she disparaged her body and style (fair enough, we all have fashion regrets) in the Titanic era. I feel like she pays lip service to being a curvy role model now, while generally remaining three sizes smaller than she was in her youth. It’s her body to do what she pleases with, but sometimes it seems disingenous the whole “I’m every woman” schpeel she trots out when anyone can see she has thinned down like pretty much every other actress in Hollywood – she was just bigger to begin with than most in the industry so is able to pretend she is some sort of curvy poster girl at a size 6 or whatever. She glosses over how she went form this: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Z0eLGCupJwg/Toq30a75VHI/AAAAAAAAAic/pue_CmSd5Zg/s1600/holy-smoke-original.jpg to this: http://trend911.com/wp-content/kate-winslet.jpg – I think she should just be proud of her shape whatever it is, truly, but I’m tired of the conversation painting her as some sort of rebellious chubster. :)

      • JWQ says:

        I don’ t mind people who critize their looks when they were younger, we all have a period of time in which we dressed as idiots and we would prefer forgetting about it, same with our body shapes and face, but it’ s just really sad to think that someone who looked like the first picture you posted could call herself overweight and ugly (or anyone else calling her overweight and ugly)!

        I also don’ t understand why bragging about it! She wasn’ t grossly unealthy and lost weight to get better for medical reasons, it was just a cosmetic procedure that she really didn’ t need! I think she looked glorious! She doesn’ t look bad now but she is way lamer!

        I honestly don’ t understand how people can call that fat! Bigger than a supermodel? Sure! Hideous and obese? No! Bigger doesn’ t always mean worse! Oh well!

    • Miss M says:

      I co- sign you comment!!! You are not Alone, you just described me as a teen and i cheered when Rose let Jack go too!

  49. Reece says:

    Nope but he’s never done it for me, even at the height of Romeo & Juliet/Titanic days.
    Although, I have always liked him as an actor.

  50. Izzy says:

    Fat, thin, young, old… I would hit it… with a baseball bat. On the head. If he ever tried to touch me. He is GROSS.

    Oh, and that manbun? Total ladyboner killer.

  51. Ginger Jackson says:

    He looks like a man who could enjoy a real woman, n that I am … So yes all day everyday!!!

    • hownowbrowncow says:

      If by “real” you mean “someone without a perfect body”, no, he wouldn’t. He wouldn’t enjoy you. He only deigns to lay his pooch on the flat stomach of flawless 20-23 year olds. He wouldn’t touch you with a ten foot pole even though he’s average as hell. That’s the whole point of this comments section.

  52. Godwina says:

    There has never been a time when I would have hit that. I don’t do “grunt and strain school of acting” types, and there’s no draw in those beady little eyes of his.

  53. Onyx XV says:

    Reminiscent of Jim Morrison towards the end. All scruffy beard and pot belly. Never a good look, nor a good sign…

  54. Chris says:

    Said it before and I’ll say it again. If women are so offended by the sexism and double standards of the entertainment industry why are 52% of movie goers female?

  55. Maria of MD says:

    No. NO. A Gajillion times NO. I wouldn’t hit it with a flyswatter.

  56. taxi says:

    He’s a talented actor & I’m pleasantly surprised that he appears to be tat-free.

  57. GIRLFACE says:

    He’s looking too tan lately and yeah, the belly is not attractive.
