Leonardo DiCaprio has gained a noticeable amount of weight this summer. And I’ve been thinking this whole time that Leo was doing it on purpose, that he wanted to be heavier for a particular role in which he wasn’t supposed to look slender and “sharp.” But now that we’re at the end of the summer… no, I don’t think this was for a role. That Rasputin movie isn’t in pre-production and he’ll be filming The Revenant in a few months, but that part doesn’t really call for a weight gain (note: I bet his beard & hairstyle are for The Revenant though). I tend to think (now) that Leo just gained weight because he had taken the summer off, because he felt like partying and drinking and eating and having a good time. And maybe some of it was drowning his Oscar sorrows in a vat of fettuccini. Damn you, Matthew McConaughey! *shakes fist* So, what now?
After spending all summer feasting and drinking on yachts in the Mediterranean, a noticeably heavier Leonardo DiCaprio has vowed to lose 10 lbs by autumn.
“He has given up pasta – and he loves pasta,” says the source. “He also plans on working out more and he is taking his bike wherever he goes.”
But when it comes to his romance with 21-year-old model Toni Garrn, Leo’s extra girth just means there’s more of him to love! “Of course she doesn’t care,” says the source. “He’s Leonardo DiCaprio!”

“Of course she doesn’t care… he only lasts a minute anyway and his belly tickles.” FIXED! But seriously, if he is going on a diet… bless his heart. When you get into your 30s, you do have to pay for it somehow. You can’t spend the summer boozing and carbing and expect to just be able to shake it off in a week. And if someone told me I had to give up pasta, that would be the end of it for me. Why live in this world if you can’t have pasta? Or potatoes? Now, all of that being said… it’s not like Leo’s weight gain is so major that he looks unrecognizable or anything. He’s just got a gut now. And men always have an easier time losing weight anyway, so f—k him. *shakes fist at all of the d-bags who can lose 10 lbs by just cutting down on pasta for a few weeks*
