Star: Leonardo DiCaprio is on Tinder as ‘Leonard’, he’s ‘obsessed’ with it


Leonardo DiCaprio only goes for blonde model-types. Or does he? My opinion – and this is just a general theory – is that Leo’s blonde model girlfriends are partly his “type” and partly how he wants to be seen, as the permanent modelizer who only dates leggy blonde Victoria’s Secret models. But in real life, Leo is a more equal-opportunity womanizer. He’ll try anything or anyone for a night. That’s my theory.

So, Leo hasn’t had an official girlfriend since Toni Garrn. He and Toni broke up – he dumped her – last fall, after which Toni sort of lost her mind for a month and she was stalking him all over Miami. But I think she’s over it now. Several weeks ago, there was a rumor that he’s been “getting very close” to another blonde model named Kelly Rohrbach, but Kelly hasn’t become his official girlfriend yet. So would it shock you to learn that Leo is trying out Tinder?

Heads up, girls: that bearded guy you swipe left on just may be an A-list celebrity! One of Star’s spies struck up a conversation with Leonardo DiCaprio at Coachella and learned that the actor is hooked on Tinder!

“Leo confessed that he was using the dating app under the name Leonard,” revealed the shocked source. Leo, who has a penchant for lithe blonde swimsuit models, isn’t above meeting a few local ladies as well.

“He said he hasn’t been on any dates yet – but is obsessed with swiping on girls and seeing who’s out there,” adds the source. “He said there’s actually a lot of other celebs who use Tinder just for fun!”

Oh, Leonard. If you just saw a photo of puffy-faced, squinty-eyed dude with a giant, bushy beard, would you swipe left (no go) or swipe right (it’s on)? Part of the allure of Leonardo (for some women) is the fact that he IS Leonardo-the-movie-star, not Leonard the puffy-faced, egotistical, boozehounding womanizer. Some women can still see the glimpse of their Titanic crush (I was always more into him as Romeo) and that’s enough to get them through the night. But when you take away the name? If Leo is just some dude on Tinder? He might be kind of shocked by how few “normal” women are actually into him.

    “Leonard.” How subtle.

  2. aims says:

    My theory on Leo is that he’s going to be that creep old guy at the club. He’s a good actor,but homeboy’s whole dating blonde Victoria Secret vibe is getting old.

    • Heather says:

      He is a good actor, but he’s becoming really bizarrely gross in his 40s. Can’t wait for a spiritual awakening for this guy so he can become a yogi kabalaist and stop spreading disease.

  3. GingerCrunch says:

    The ONLY “Leonard” is the one from “The Departed”.

    • qwerty says:

      And now I’m feeling nostalgic… also, just realised that was almost 10 YEARS AGO. He’s not coming back, is he?

  4. A.Key says:

    Well he needs a reality check anyway.

  5. Cecada says:

    Left swipe. Then throw my phone into a river just to be safe

  7. msw says:

    I never heard of tinder until last night. Is it like grindr for heteros?

  8. Abbott says:

    I’d swipe left so hard my fingers would bleed.

  9. Kiddo says:

    ‘Stewie’, that is all.

  10. jen2 says:

    That will fool folks. Just like Clooney being “Danny Ocean”. I am not familiar with Tinder, so I am not sure what to say otherwise.

  11. Silk Spectre says:

    I would develope a Carpal Tinder Syndome from swiping left so hard!

  12. FingerBinger says:

    This guy can snap his fingers and get whatever he wants. He can have 20 women bathing in a swimming pool filled with mountain dew if he wants. I don’t think Leonard is getting his kicks using tinder.

  13. Hillshmill says:

    Titanic was on TV the other day and I was amazed at just how beautiful he used to be. He really hasn’t aged well but I think if he really cared, he could clean up well again. That being said, he’s a single guy with no kids and has no reason to apologize for living the life he does. I get the Tinder fascination too. I’m married and sometimes feel like I missed out on the online dating experience. Sometimes when I hang out with single friends, we like to crack open a bottle of wine and troll through the masses and just laugh.

    • minx says:

      He smokes and we know he drinks and parties; that takes a toll on your looks.
      I think he was eager to get away from the smooth-faced pretty boy look, but he’s on the edge of looking seedy.

    • nikkisixx says:

      Honestly you aren’t missing much. I wish I didn’t have to resort to online dating but its the best option when you work, live in the suburbs, and don’t go out that often. Most of my friends (I’m 23) have only met guys on Tinder who either are looking to hookup, or act like complete tools once they’ve slept with you. Most of them tried various dating apps and have had majority bad experiences.

    • launicaangelina says:

      I had the biggest crush on him while I was in high school and it was due to Romeo + Juliet. I saw it recently on Netflix and yes, he was very good looking. He is not aging very well.

    • msw says:

      I have had the same though on his looks, and I feel bad being fixated on looks (because he really is, or at least was, a brilliant actor). But yeah, he was so very pretty, and now… What?

  14. Suzi says:

    I don’t believe that for a second. I wish the media would just leave him alone, he’s not a famewhore, he doesn’t pimp out his private life for publicity, he’s an amazing actor who produces great work because that’s what he loves doing. There are those who deserve to be hounded, he’s not one of them.

    His look is entirely dependent on whatever movie he’s doing, he’s not trying to be a pretty boy, he seems to have tried to get as far away from that image as possible since titanic. So what he’s got a beard and looks older? He’s forty and playing a role that requires him to have long hair and a beard.

    Given the criticism of him and any girl he’s seen with I’m not surprised that he’s only seen with supermodels. At least they won’t have their looks ripped apart over the internet when the stalker pics come out.

    • Ash says:

      I’m not a Leo fan, but I agree with you. I don’t understand the level of dislike this guy receives.

      And it mostly appears to be directed at his love life. Why should anyone care who he dates? He’s never been married and doesn’t have children. He’s not hurting anyone.

    • mytbean says:

      I’m afraid to tell you that there is no Santa Claus. Leo is not just some sweet, innocent man looking for eternal love who just wants to act and be left alone. Does “the Pu**y Posse” sound like a beautiful, romantic, respectable establishment of feminist fellas about town? His actions speak louder than your “Just Leave Brittany Alone!” diatribe.

      People who do not want attention (aka non-fame whores) do not go to fashion shows to pick out which model they will be wearing this month (you know, looking for love). They do not make press announcements about buying islands (with nice tax write-offs for being an environmentally friendly endeavor). They don’t lounge on massive yachts in St. Barts with hoards of models because they don’t choose to stoke this impression unless it’s what they want. He wants to be known as a million-dollar play boy and so that’s how the world knows him.

      Even Jack Nicholson notices… and warns him to tone it down and find relationships that are more substantial.

      Celebrities can live private lives if they choose too. But what’s more telling of his personality is what he allows us to see.

    • Cami says:

      Uh Leonard is that you? ??

    • Caz says:

      I agree and I’m not a fan either. Respect him as an actor. What he does with his private life male or female is up to him. Those who go along for the short time know their role.

  15. Wondering says:

    If all the stories are true, it seems more and more as though he’s a sex addict. Should get some treatment. Being compelled to do something that you know you shouldn’t isn’t a happy way to live life.

    • Lola says:

      I agree. They make it sound like he’s done with models and will now move on to regular girls, next thing we know he’ll be arrested for having sex in some gas station toilet.
      The “source” says he’s not having sex with them, but it just can’t be healthy.

    • Isabelle says:

      This so much. Everyone comparing him to george or jack but this guy takes it to a whole new level. He’s Butler level.

  16. serena says:

    He’s so gross looking to me (reflecting his inner douche maybe), I don’t know how many ‘normal’ women would go out with him as ‘Leornard’.

  17. unmade_bed says:

    How can I find him on that site? I have a plan…

  18. Jaquie says:

    My friend tutors two girls, 18 years old and 19 years old. Born 1998 and 1997, respectively. They don’t care who Leonardo Dicaprio is. To them, he is old. His prime was before their lives. They like younger, hotter stars with more exposure. Leo got turned down at a Coachella party because the girl he was after told his friend he ‘looks like my dad”. Everybody ages – even movie stars. The young hot girls want guys that can actually look good (and get it up without a blue pill smoothie). Publicists easily can gather hot blonde models for him because it is a HUGE career move to be his GF. That buffet will always be there.

    • Bobbiesue says:

      Oh my gosh, lol..funny and true.
      I have always maintained that the majority of men who are “beautiful” at 18,19,20 are the ones who abjectly lose their looks by late 30’s-40’s and HOW. More so than average to good looking men. If, to boot, they don’t make effort, it’s worse.
      That said…Johnny got a pretty young blond even while looking dirty and bloated.
      Money, power, notoriety

    • Question everything says:

      @ Jaquie
      Have you been at Coachella?
      Who did turn him down? Spill the beans, please.

  19. Beep says:

    I always thought he was gay.

  20. Patty says:

    Not gay. Classic commitmentphobe. And I have a feeling, though he will probably never admit it, that he screwed up big time letting Gisele go. He kept the sleaze under control for a while when he was dating Bar. But now he is just a mess.

    • Sarah says:

      Bar trumps Gizelle times a million.
      I don’t see how Gizelle’s foot face is attractive at all

  21. Sarah says:

    if he had a long shower and scrub down and showed me a medical certificate confirming no STIs I’d go there, just to see. I imagine he’d be a pretty good kisser by now and I’ve heard actresses he acted with say he was… I’d be picturing him as Billy Costigan but he’d be picturing me as skinnier. We all do what we gotta to make it work 🙂

  22. Question everything says:

    Does anybody think that this might be some kind of advertising move? Did Leo invest into this? He does sometimes invest into tech stuff.

  23. hpower says:

    someone finally admitting Leonardo likes non white women as well.

  24. Missy says:

    This girl may be the one! Believe 🙂
