Well, that was quick. Oscar-nominated “modelizer” Leonardo DiCaprio has a new galpal and she isn’t a supermodel. Shock! Leo has proven it doesn’t take long to mend a broken heart if you have a leggy blonde on your arm, as pictures emerged of him snuggling up to Blake Lively less than a week after announcing his split from Sports Illustrated model Bar Refaeli.
On Tuesday, the pair were snapped lounging on the boat with director Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw but neither seemed to notice they had company. The alleged couple first met when Blake, 23, auditioned for the role of Leo’s love interest, Daisy Buchanan, in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby. She lost the role to Carey Mulligan, but has remained in contact with DiCaprio, 36, ever since.
Spywitnesses with the The New York Post also reported spotting Leo and Blake around the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc, in the resort town of Antibes, in the south of France over the weekend.
“They walked around the grounds together,” a source told the newspaper. “It looked like they were a couple.”
Meanwhile, Refaeli has been causing a stir of her own in the nearby town of Cannes, making a stunning appearance on the red carpet at the famed film festival. The 25-year-old, who had been dating DiCaprio on-and-off for five years, split from the star earlier this month.
