For Leonardo DiCaprio, there’s a big benefit to dating a young woman around her 19th or 20th birthday. It means they get more time together before he eventually dumps her on her 25th birthday. So it is with Camila Morrone, who is currently 22 years old, or about three years away from ageing out of Leo’s Girlfriend Experience. Camila and Leo have been together since early 2018. He really likes Camila – he takes her and her mom on yacht vacations, Camila attends his premieres and his events (but never on his arm) and he even agreed to this hand-holding photo-op in New York this week. What a gent. Good luck to Camila, because she’ll need it.
Meanwhile, did you know that Leo now comes in wax candle form? You can burn him. Probably.
Artist Urs Fischer’s upcoming show at Paris gallery Gagosian will feature Leo DiCaprio — in the form of a giant candle. ArtNews reports that the show, titled “Leo,” will most likely be a wax candle of the actor, though sources wouldn’t confirm. Fischer has also made life-size candles of artist Julian Schnabel, art collector Peter Brant and art collector Dasha Zhukova. Fischer burns the works over the duration of the show. The exhibit opens Oct. 14.
Fischer has auctioned off other pieces of work for DiCaprio’s environmental foundation, with a piece in 2017 netting $2.5 million.
If you found yourself in possession of a life-sized wax DiCaprio candle, what would you do with it? Burn it? Let it melt in the sun? My answer would depend on whether the candle was Leo-scented, because he never looks like he smells good. I imagine he smells like cigarettes, liquor, cheap cologne and Patchouli.
Also: I love Camila’s ‘90s style boots. They look like platform Docs!!
