Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend Kelly Rohrbach has a really great publicist


Earlier this month, we discussed Leonardo DiCaprio’s new official girlfriend, Kelly Rohrbach. This is something of Leo’s new habit: he stays single for Cannes, but then he rolls out a new girlfriend for the summer. I believe he did something similar with Toni Garrn. Anyway, Kelly and Leo are happening – the “biking through New York” photo op already happened, which speeds up the process considerably. So how did Kelly lock down the official girlfriend title so quickly? What does she have that the other Victoria’s Secret models didn’t have? Well, for one thing, Kelly has an amazing publicist. The NY Post ran this blatant PR plant yesterday with the headline “Why Leo’s latest model could be the one.” Oh, Kelly. Honey, NO! So, let’s do some highlights from the piece.

She’s different from the other models because she’s educated and rich: “With a degree from elite Georgetown University and a financier father, she has a pedigree unlike the average bikini babe.”

She’s different because she’s a tomboy: “Described by pals as a ‘tomboy’ who favors jeans and a T-shirt, Rohrbach played golf at the Big East school before giving it up for the theater. The personification of country-club preppy, Rohrbach — who now splits her time between downtown Manhattan and Los Angeles — grew up in posh Greenwich, Conn., at a home with a private golf facility.”

The editor of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, MJ Day, says: “When she came into the office, she floored us immediately…She had that spark. She’s an incredible conversationalist. When she is around, you are sucked into her. She takes the room with her presence in the best possible way…I only book people that I hope will take it to the next level. I haven’t talked to her about her relationship status, but I am sure [dating Leo] is a fun bonus. I’m glad she is coupled up with such a famous actor. And why not? She’s a 20-something beautiful girl. I’m glad they are having fun.”

Where Kelly met Leo: She was party-hopping on Oscar night in LA and a friend introduced her to Leo. That was February. He didn’t make her official until late May though.

How Kelly describes herself: “I’m definitely quick-witted. And I can hang with the guys. I’m pretty relaxed, and nothing really offends me. I think everything’s funny, to be honest.”

She really wants to be an actress. After college, she went to LA to try to make it an actress. She landed a couple of small parts on TV shows and commercials but her agent told her to try modeling.

[From The NY Post]

There’s a lot of stuff in there from lots of sources insisting that she’s totally down with being “one of the guys” and she was her father’s “wingman” and she loves to golf and eat healthy and she has that spark, you guys. Here’s the thing: she’s perfectly pretty, she’s got a great body, she already comes from a wealthy family and she’s already a rising star in the modeling world and she probably will find more work as an actress. But none of that really matters to Leo and whether or not he’ll settle down with her. They’ll be together for a year or so and then he’ll dump her, probably because she’s 24/25 years old and already dangerously close to his age limit. And it’s a shame she’s wasting all of this hustle and good PR on Leo, you know?

    …her face?

    Actually she kinda reminds me of that woman from Orange is the New Black, Natasha?

    • Kiddo says:

      Jessica Simpson?

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        LMAO. Best reply ever.

      • Cankles says:

        Jessica Simpson was my first thought, too. I actually thought it was her in the header pic and was momentarily confused as to why she and Leo would be dating each other.

      • Donna says:

        Exactly! Thought it was Jsimps!

      • Elisa the I. says:

        haha, she totally looks like Jessica Simpson – except for the eyes where she looks like Michelle Rodriguez.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Compared to some of the former Angels like Doutzen Kroes, Candace Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson and Erin Heatherton (whom I believe Leo dated as well), this one is really no big deal, especially in that top picture, which reminds of Lizzy Grubman-LOL! But, I can totally see Jessica Simpson as well.

        I give her credit for being educated, but being born into a privileged home can help one get through the right doors.

      • jeanne says:

        lizzy grubman! yes!

        this girl is not very pretty, hot body but kinda a butter face. am i an asshole? sure. why not.

      • Ankhel says:

        Jessica Simpson – with a touch of Stiffler’s mom.

      • Girl says:

        Candice is not a former Angel. She IS a VS model.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m getting Katherine Heigl vibes.

    • Amide says:

      Oh yeah, she has brown eyes. This is VERY weird for a Leo girl.

    • kcarp says:

      All I thought is they based this “character” off Mary in There’s Something About Mary.

      • Gauchita says:

        Manic Pixie Dream Girl od Douches, mutch? Ask Megan Fox and MIla Kunis for tips, gurl!

      • qwerty says:

        Her description of herself made me think of the “cool girl” stereotype from Gone girl.

    • Franca says:

      Noo, Natasha Lyonne is much prettier.

    • Cam says:

      @Elisa the I. Perfect description: Jessica Simpson x Michelle Rodriguez.

    • melissa says:

      Thank you.

      Butter Face.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:


      You’re not an a-hole, unless you are referring only to your opinion. You know what they say about those being like a-holes, everyone has one and everyone thinks the others stink-LOL! Your butter face comment made me laugh and you are entitled to your opinion as well.

  2. Delta Juliet says:

    Wow that first picture is not flattering! She looks like a 50 year old heavy smoker.

  3. Franca says:

    I already don’t like her. Don’t describe yourself as quick witted.

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      + 1. She seems very conceited and uppity.

    • notpretentious says:

      I was thinking the same thing!

    • Kitten says:

      I feel like a lot of models say sh*t like this in an attempt to prove that they’re more than just genetically blessed, like “I’m not just pretty, I’m like, super-smart too!!”

    • Kiki says:

      I am saying the same thing. I just can’t with these people, this girl is rich and affluent and she wants to be an actress. Instead of going to school of drama r theatre, the only way for her, and as sad to say this, but she is milking it. Is to be a model and use Leo to become an. Actress for a big movie and she is famous. And that cycle begins over and over again.

      And she does have a really good publicist. Which is why I really don’t like fashion models. They are so lucky that even if they are funny with the runway, they can easily become actresses by dating a-list models. But hey, it worked for Suki Waterhouse, it can work for Kelly r…… What’s her face.

    • Jen says:

      Great minds. She looks and sounds like an a***ole.

    • The Old KC says:

      Haha – my favorite line was “she gave up golf for the theater.” In my mind, I read it in a clipped British accent, “The Thee-uhhh-tuh.” Then she, what, gave up her thee-uh-tuh-caliber acting chops to cover SI. She’s certainly multi-talented. 😉

  4. ell says:

    it makes it even sadder, bc if she’s all that she could probably do a lot better than leo, his bloated face, and his squad of hanger ons.

    ETA: why did her manager told her to try modelling instead of acting? lmao

  5. Neelyo says:

    I’m getting Lizzie Grubman vibes from that first pic. I hope that’s not the facial expression she uses while modeling.

  6. OhDear says:

    He’s practically Clooney-esque at this point.

    • Tiffany says:

      But Leo’s people are not putting this out there. You knew it when is was a Clooney girl and know it with now wife.

      • OhDear says:

        I mean with the annual or biannual lower-profile girlfriend (save Gisele) rollout and photo ops.

    • Mila says:

      Leo is probably a bigger sl*t and really only dates blonde models. And i also dont think he plays the PR game like George now does, this is all her doing.

    • serena says:

      Even worse, he’s practically flipping through a VS catalog and chosing his next fling.

    • Cristina says:

      Clooney at least has an olive of, “this has got to stop” in his martini

  7. lisa2 says:

    Some of those statements sound exactly like what we heard with George and Amal.

    so maybe she is the one for Leo..

    • buburuu says:

      LOL, this girl is far far away to be like Amal.

      At least Amal had a successfully carreer. What is this girl? A wannabe actress and model?

    • qwerty says:

      Toni Garrn interview that described her as the one that might be THE ONE was her last as his gf. This is all I’m saying

  8. Allie says:

    The new Amal, maybe? She’s just the smartest, funniest, prettiest unicorn out there, you guys.

    Also, I hate when women say something like, I can hang out with the guys. Like that is some feat that only certain women can do.

    • Livvers says:

      When I was in my 20s I would have “oh brothered” her so hard for those comments, but now it just makes me think, “wow, she is _young_” and I reserve my eye-rolling for Leo. “I’m like ’em really young when they’re still deluded about their own importance because they will put up with my shit until I’m ready to drop them.”

  9. Pedro45 says:

    In other words, she’s a Cool Girl.

    • qwerty says:

      There it is mentioned again. I;m so happy to see this term has become a thing lol

  10. Abbott says:

    That PR push is so strong and transparent, even Clooney’s people are like ‘Yo, take it down a notch.’

    • Loopy says:

      She better watch it, Leo does not like his catalogue talking to the press,she will get a quicker boot than Blake Lively.

      • qwerty says:

        Lively is believed to be the only one who dumped him, actually. But yeah, she keeps talking and he will end it, I;m sure. Actually I’ll be surprised if he hasn’t already.

      • CG says:

        Blake and Gisele dumped him.

  11. Loopy says:

    Well this is different, his girls usually don’t ever mutter a word. I think Giselle is the only one who had her own profile before dating him, she is the only girlfriend I ever saw on his arm at a red carpet event.

    • Mia4S says:

      Yeah she’ll either be quiet from here on out or be shown the door with some lovely parting gifts. He prefers if his monthly edition doesn’t have much in the way of ambitions beyond his bloated self.

    • Amide says:

      Leo’s girls have to be quiet as they sign NDA agreements, (including Gisele). Just like George Clooney, Ben Affleck e.t.c
      And Gisele benefited greatly from dating Leo.
      The relationship took her from the fashion pages to popculture.
      For example, Gisele’s peer the model Daria Werbovy works far more than Gisele in every facet of fashion, but did not date famous dudes so few know of her.

      • qwerty says:

        Daria hates fame and even modelling iirc though. She now lives in the countryside somewhere in Wales or Scotland? either way, she’s not into this fame thing. Gisele, on the other hand….

      • Girl says:

        Is this a joke? Everybody wants Gisele’s career. Do you really think Daria is better than her?
        “Gisele benefited greatly from dating Leo. The relationship took her from the fashion pages to popculture.” Oh, yeah… Who doesn’t want to read offensive comments about themselves, right? Gossip… It’s so cool. Daria is lucky.

  12. Kitten says:

    Oh yeah the Tom-boy-slash-girl-next-door-who-looks-like-model-but-is-actually-like-really-super-smart-and-loves-to-hang-with-the-guys-and-is-super-athletic. Did I miss anything? She’s just every man’s fantasy, right?

    Also, are these just awful pics of her or what?… because I don’t find her very attractive.

    I’m so behind on my Leo gossip, I didn’t even know that he already traded in for a new model. Hard to keep up with that dude’s modelizing.

  13. Hyena says:

    Once the word pedigree is used, I will never like you.

  14. Tessa says:

    Um, she’s pretty unfortunate looking to me. Not even for a model, just for regular people… She looks like a Real Housewife

    • kri says:

      “She really wants to be an actress”. Uh huh. Daddy couldn’t buy her talent. Ugh. Have fun while that bearded baby beluga humps on you, dear. Ugh. so gross!

  15. bread says:

    “And I can hang with the guys. I’m pretty relaxed, and nothing really offends me. I think everything’s funny, to be honest.”

    Ah, she’s a “Cool Girl”. I bet she just eats pizza and burgers all the time, and she’s really into football.

    • Chris says:

      How witty can you be if you think everything is funny? Everything? Who thinks everything is funny? Or is this part of being a Cool Girl? You don’t ever get mad/upset/bored/unimpressed with your boyfriend–it’s all just funny?

      • GingerCrunch says:

        A dimwit thinks everything’s funny. Or a really immature 20-something. Enjoy your reign as flavor-of-the-month.

      • Jem says:

        I dunno… Maybe a girl needs a really good sense of humor to ‘date’ Leo and hang around his ‘friends’. She is a glorified c#ck holster, after all.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        You make an excellent point, Jem! And you very nearly made me blush!!!

      • Kitten says:

        I wonder if she would laugh at the comments here.
        I mean, she said she finds everything funny and doesn’t ever get offended, after all.

      • laura in LA says:

        I think Kelly “Robotic” actually was here on the previous thread about her and Leo, posting as Subconciously (or not so subconciously…?) all these canned, boilerplate, try-too-hard comments, like this one:

        “Kelly Rohrbach might be a bit different than his previous girls.

        Kelly Rohrbach is one of a kind. An unusual SI model. She comes from serious money. Her father was a partner in some investment company. She is a gifted golfer who nearly went pro.”

        Or else it’s her really great (try-too-hard, twentysomething amateur) publicist…

      • Kitten says:


        Nothing about winning a Nobel Peace Prize? What does “nearly went pro” mean? Was she not good enough to be a golf pro? Oh, I’m sorry she gave up pro for theater!! WOW. What a Renaissance Woman.

        Sorry for the extra mean snark today but this is just too fun 😉

  16. kri says:

    “She really wants to be an actress”. Uh huh. Daddy couldn’t buy her talent. Ugh. Have fun while that bearded baby beluga humps on you, dear. Ugh. so gross!

  17. Jenns says:

    Put this girl in LA and she will blend in with every other wannabe blonde actress. There is nothing original or unique about her.


  18. Talie says:

    “He didn’t make her official until late May though.”

    A smart girl from Gerogetown U puts up with this… yeah, she sounds very intelligent to me.

    • laura in LA says:

      I’m curious how Leo makes them “official”…

      Do they sign the usual girlfriend contract?

      • qwerty says:

        They’re allowed to walk down the street next to him. Lainey had a vine of them “together” shere she walked several feet behind him like they were strangers.

  19. loud noises says:

    what came to mind reading this was gone girl’s analysis of “the cool girl”.

  20. Boots says:

    Wow, she is really not cute.

  21. hadlyB says:

    She looks really old for a 25 year old. And yes I agree, like she she was on some housewife reality show but honestly they all look better than she does.

    She might want to take the partying down a notch and stop tanning, and visit a derm.

  22. Damn says:

    She has the face of a 45 year old real housewife.

  23. Adrien says:

    She looks like an older version of Jessica Simpson.

  24. Elfie says:

    I like Dicaprio as an actor, he’s one of my favourites. He seems stunted for the fact that he’s still dating the same age girls that he did 20 years ago, it’s like he’s mentally frozen in time but his body is aging so now he’s a lot older and the 20 year olds he’s dating now are downgraded versions of what he used to get. Let’s be honest, no twenty something wants a forty year old unless she’s after money, fame or something, it’s not love. Which is sad that he’s reduced himself to user and used. His taste is so dull and superficial. Pity.

  25. Bridget says:

    That was the exact wording one commenter kept using to describe Rohrback on the last Leo post. She does indeed have a hard working shill. She better be careful, Leo doesn’t like it when his ladies try to capitalize on their relationship with him.

    • MD says:

      I remember that comment. Those comments are everywhere.
      She has a REALLY good publicist.

      • Bridget says:

        “Kelly Rohrback is one of a kind” blah blah blah.

        Whatever junior person was on that needs to learn that no one actually talks like that on forums like this.

    • laura in LA says:

      Yep, dating Leo is like Fight Club, don’t talk about it.

      (And if she really were a Cool Girl, she just wouldn’t.)

  26. Jaded says:

    She looks like a Hooter’s waitress. Leo…give your head a shake.

  27. Crystal says:

    She is definitely not 24/25 years old… I’m guessing she’s closer to 30 or older.

  28. Lucy says:

    …So she’s basically the Cool Girl. Scary.

  29. wow says:

    Leo’s ladies all look the same and have forgettable names. Without this blog article I wouldn’t have known this one was a new one. He’s boring in his dating choices. He could at least entertain us by trying to get with Cara D. I don’t care much for her but at least she has a personality.

  30. Rockin Robin says:

    That is a hard looking 25.

  31. Delien dh says:

    She is already milking it that would only mean the relationship is going to end like all the rest.He is in control and she just joins in for the ride.And who talks like that.I’m definitely quick-witted can hang with the guys. I’m pretty relaxed, and nothing really offends me. I think everything’s funny, to be honest.Then i bet you will be laughing when he cheats on you and then dumps your uppity ass.He is already following and threating her whit the same patterns like all his ex girlfriends.If he doesnt respect you he cant love you sweetie.ps she reminds and looks like a pornstar.

  32. serena says:

    In the first photo she kind of look like Jessica Simpson. She sound so desperate, with that ‘nothing offend me’ she’s basically saying she’s up for anything, and that’s really idiotic. She reminds me of one of Clooney old-ladies, they’d say anything to be part of the clique and stay with him longer, even humiliate themselves. ugh. Why would a 24yo waste her time with a gross model serial like Leo? I don’t get it.
    I just want someone to dump his gross ass so publicly and humiliate him really bad. Maybe I’m a bad person, lol.

    • Veronica says:

      That already happened – remember the Blake Lively episode of his life? When he was all over her, and then she dropped him for Ryan Reynolds? AND THEN HE HOLED UP IN HIS TRAILER DURING THE FILMING OF GATSBY AND THREW A HISSY FIT?

      It was beautiful.

  33. Melanie says:

    Did she major in theatre in college?

  34. Tacos and TV says:

    Leo is a great actor. Truly. But I feel like he is bizarre. Kinda reminds me of a younger, homeless looking Quinten Tarentino. Just off. I wonder how many showers it takes to wash him off? Does he brush his teeth?? I question his hygiene. When he was with Gisele, he was not like this… he changed after that relationship ended. But, I will always give credit where it’s due… he’s a true talent indeed. Maybe that’s why he’s so weird??

    • Kitten says:

      He’s fantastically talented, but his dating life is just too entertaining to not talk about.

      • Katy says:

        His dating life reminds me of Jack Nicholson – and I think Leo is even staring to look Jack N.

      • serena says:

        his dating life is almost embarrassing (but I bet it’s kind of a trophy/badge for him).

    • V. says:

      I already have surmised that Gisele was too real for him. She wasn’t about being arm candy to some narcissistic man-child. Good on her for staying away from him after things ended and getting the commitment and family she wanted.

      Leo picks women who aren’t going to expect anything from him longterm. Its a contract they get exposure and he gets to continue being a commitment phobe. Win-win I guess…

  35. joy says:

    Hey, all he needs is a few more years for 3D printers to advance just a tad more, and he can finally just manufacture the perfect woman.

  36. Susan says:

    Boy, do these girls look old! I would have guessed she was 35. Does Leo care if she’s a good conversationalist?

  37. tiptoe_loud says:

    Does anybody get the feeling that his PR team just picks new blonde VS models for his girlfriends? Maybe as, in absence of a better way to put this, a heterosexuality distraction. The playboy image is rather helpful. Nobody doubts his straightness, which makes me suspicious. There’s way too little variety here in girlfriends. Sometimes I wonder if he is gay and Lukas Haas is his partner. I have a feeling he really did hook up with B. cooper.

    • Chris says:

      I have often theorized this as well. There’s just a lot of photos of Leo, Lukas, and whoever the girl du jour happens to be at the moment.

  38. tiptoe_loud says:

    Also is he gonna start dating girls born after 1997 eventually?? As in, the year Titanic came out? That’s disgusting.

  39. ashley says:

    I’m at work laughing so hard at these comments!!! Man,i love this site.

  40. V. says:

    Leo’s taste in women is soooooooooooooooooooooooo boring!! I rather he date Rhianna’s ghetto ass than any more boring models. No wonder he dumps them after only a year or two. Dullsville! He needs to grow up and fast. He’s going to be all washed up and douchey like Jack Nicholson before he knows. (No shade to Mr. Nicholson as an actor!)

  41. Savannah says:

    Is leo trying to create the perfect barbie?just pick one already man-child it’s not like they are so different all one of the same.Leo what you want is not always what you need.Maybe if you get out of this routine you may actually find someone who loves you and not your fame or money.This one will probably have a 20 year old golddiger when he is 60 face it.To big of a ego there.And don’t even get me started on miss I find everything funny.Bimbo!

  42. Sophie says:

    I have a feeling this press release is throwing some shade at Kate Upton.
    Her career is crashing fast, btw. She was fired from her Express campaign, Mariah Carey is replacing her in Game of War, and Bobbi Brown customers don’t want to buy cosmetics from a young girl who does pseudo-porn. Her new movie just looks embarrassing.

    It’s as if Kelly’s people are saying “Hey you know how SI has typically hired cookie cutter white and blonde models with no personality and a wealthy family who paid for their fame? Well this one is different, she’s like totally smart (but don’t worry, she’ll never actually say anything smart because thinking gives you wrinkles)! She also eats burgers and drinks beer but never gains a pound. She never gets offended at anything ever (unlike those ugly feminists, ugh. Why can’t minorities just be as chill as Kelly?), because she has specifically molded her personality to suit the male gaze at all times.”

    • Tiffany says:

      Agree about Kate Upton. It seems like she forgot what got her to where she is. It is strange to see her career spiraling the way it is.

  43. Katrina says:

    I cannot imagine getting a degree from a prestigious university and then moving to LA to try to be an actress/model.

    • Veronica says:

      She majored in theater, so that would have been her goal all along. That, and there’s a lot of freedom to do what you want to do with your life when Mommy and Daddy are footing the bill for you.

    • prism_go says:

      It’s weird cause she was a successful golfer at Georgetown. You should google her name and type in ‘georgetown’ golf….Judging by how she looked when she was at Georgetown she didn’t plan to model. She was pretty but normal looking (and brunette, not blonde). So confused about what happened with that. I bet she finally realized she could break into theater if she modeled since she’s attractive.

  44. Jenn K says:

    But guys shes a “cool girl” lol.

  45. aurelia says:

    Gad this girl is budget. Just googled the georgetown golf Kelly Rohrbach images. You can see she got a tit job. She was flat in the green polo shirt when she was a plain brunette.

  46. Cam says:

    If her publicist wrote her modelling profile, Kelly should fire him/her, because whoever wrote it thinks “infamous” is a flattering term.

    • Brittney B says:

      Eh, I’m not sure “infamous playboy” could be considered a compliment… and the caption usually isn’t created by the original writer anyway. It’s fascinating that publicists have so much sway over the media, but Kirsten Fleming is a real reporter, not a PR plant. It took me two minutes on Google to find an interview with a talent manager who met her and gets “heads up” emails from her when athletes and models are going to be discussed.

  47. Whitney says:

    Yep, “Cool Girl” definitely came to mind.
