Blake Lively & Leonardo DiCaprio: Great Gatsby Dinner Date!

Looks like Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio may be teaming up for the movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby!

The two actors shared dinner with director Baz Luhrmann and his crew at NYC’s The Lion on Tuesday (November 2), according to reports.

Baz is set to bring F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic book to the big screen with Leo reportedly playing the lead as Jay Gatsby.

Though Amanda Seyfried was rumored to be given the role of Daisy Buchanan, Blake is “being strongly considered,” reports Us Weekly.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Blake Lively as Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby?

    I think Us Weekly relies on publicists for a lot of their stories, and this one looks like it came from Blake’s. ;) Nikki Finke / Deadline Hollywood already said Blake is in the running, but I wouldn’t put her ahead of anyone else. She looks the part, but if a bigger name movie actress wants the part, she probably doesn’t stand a chance.

    Blake is grabbing at straws…she was terrible in the Town and is horrible on Gossip Girl…she prob had to screw Harvey Weinstein to get that meeting…ugh. Hopefully Natalie Portman will get the part

    horrible pic of leo. He looks like he is pushing 50 and has a horrible squinting problem. His girlfriend Bar Refaeli is way too hot for him. Leo got lucky lol.

    Natalie Says:

    Why does Blake look like a 40 year old woman in that picture?! Anyway, I don’t think she’s that great of an actress to play such a role. Stick to Gossip Girl, please!

    I’m very excited for this movie. I like all of Baz Lurmann’s movies so i think he will do a great job on this.

    She’s hot but I don’t know if she’s right for this. They need a more acclaimed actress who won’t be blown off the screen trying to act opposite DiCaprio.

    brooke Says:

    The Great Gatsby is my favorite book! I cannot wait for the new version. Blake is the perfect choice for Daisy – I hope she gets it over Amanda! Leo would suck a Gatsby though! I’m disappointed in that pick. There’s no way he can outdo Redford’s Gatsby. =/

  26. 26
    Sian Says:

    @JC:

    it’s not for certain that Blake is casted. I think in the end she will not get the part. Baz is just workshopping different actresses with Leo at the moment.

  27. 27
    Lindley Says:

    Leighton Meester is the best actress on Gossip Girl. I’m not saying Blake isn’t good, but Leighton there’s something about her. Anyway, Blake would be good for this part!

    forgotten Says:

    uh, what, you decided to remove the fact the Great Gatsby has ALREADY been made into a movie, starring two huge names, Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, in 1974?

    Forget Blake Lively, she can be ok, I think Di Caprio is one horrid choice for that role. He certainly can’t fill Robert Redford’s shoes, that’s for sure. This is at best a remake of a movie, not certainly “bringing the book to the big screen”. That has been done (and in a great way) already.

    mari Says:

    seems like the insider saying she’s strongly considered is her publicists pushing for her. seriously?when will hollywood stop pushing her down our throats? she can’t act for **** and when she does it’s a full on caricature (the town)

    leo fan Says:

    @forgotten: leo can play absolutely any role and make it believable. he is a fantastic actor and I know I said he looks like a bulldog (which is true) but he’s the type of actor that doesn’t have to worry about his looks because he’s just that awesome. He’s no brad pitt. Brad Pitt has to have major overhauls on his face or the whole celeb/gossip/movie world shuns him… all looks no talent.

  31. 31
    eileener Says:

    @mari:

    I don’t have a strong opinion on her as an actress, but the article itself smacks of publicist speak — her publicist. “Strong contender” and all the rest makes it fairly obvious. She is pretty though, and would look great in the period clothes.

  32. 32
    N Says:

    She will fail as a decent Daisy.

  33. 33
    Angie Says:

    @N: i agree, i don’t see her as daisy at all.

  34. 34
    mari Says:

    @eileener:

    she would honestly suck in period clothes. her only appeal is her body and hair. and imagine the hair and make-up, it needs a natural beauty with a stunning and soft face. Blake is too harsh looking in the face and too dependent on her hair to look good.

  35. 35

    Blake is attractive but I do not see the depth of talent to pull off the leading role for a movie like Gatsby.She should stick to TV.

    Daisy is small, delicate and refined. Blake, although beautiful, is too many things that are wrong for this project: modern, young, tall, broad, etc.

    SMH... Says:

    @CanadaGirl – Natalie Portman is getting tons of Oscar buzz for “The Swan,” (which I can’t wait to see) and certainly has the acting chops to hold her own opposite Leo. Of the names that have been bandied about thus far, she’s the best choice, I agree.

  43. 43
    CanadaGirl Says:

    Agreed. The more I think about, the better the fit seems. I didn’t think there was anyone credible or worthy of the role around 30-ish, but I forgot about Natalie. I can’t remember who recommended her name in past threads, but you were spot on.

    I am looking forward the partnership they have. good luck blake

    eileener Says:

    I love Natalie Portman, but I think she might make a better Jordan. Or maybe I’m just too stuck on the Mia Farrow look for Daisy. ;) How about Rachel McAdams for Daisy? Another actress I’d love to see Leo work with.

  46. 46
    CanadaGirl Says:

    I like that combo too, @eileener: . Rachel is good too. I’m not sure if she can play ‘vapid’ well though. Love Rachel – she’s from London, Ontario.

    Jasmine Says:

    I can’t stand Amanda Seyfried so anyone is better than her.

  48. 48
    BWaldorf Says:

    GOD NO. I don’t usually mind Blake but she needs to grow as an actress before being handed heavy parts like this. She means well and I’m sure in the future she might be okay, but right now she clearly can’t handle anything outside of the Serena Van der Woodsen range. (The Town, anyone?)

    There are plenty of other talented actresses in Hollywood that don’t receive as much media attention as her, but more critical acclaim (Rachel McAdams, Zooey Deschanel, Natalie Portman.)
    -Amanda Seyfried shoudl play Daisy. She has the acting chops to pull it off and most people seem to like her. Also she fits the character description more than Blake.

    Diane Says:

    I think Blake will do good as Daisy. She has the look for it. I think she’s a better choice than some of the other names people are listing.

    CanadaGirl Says:

    Actually, @eileener:, what do you think about Rachel as Jordan and Natalie as Daisy? I like that role assignment much better. I don’t like the idea of NP being reduced to a smaller role, and I think that she can handle the multifaceted characterization needed to portray Daisy.

  51. 51
    Ashlee Says:

    The role of Daisy requires a lot of subtle acting. I don’t see Blake being able to do that.

    I think Blake and Leo will look cute together onscreen.

  53. 53
    JC Says:

    @gatsby:

    Look cute together on screen? I think they’re aiming for something a little better than a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy with this one. You don’t get Leonardo DiCaprio to go out and make a cute, brainless date movie.

    Diva 4eva Says:

    hmm since Blake was meeting with the director and crew it looks like Blake has a big chance of getting the part.

    Nikki Says:

    As much as I enjoy both of these actors, nobody can outdo Robert Redford and Mia Farrow in the original version of this film. The film was elegant and beautiful and it’s one of my favorites.

    I love the Great Gatsby story and I sincerely hope that Luhrmann doesn’t butcher it like most of today’s Hollywood remakes end up getting butchered.

    No to Lively, Amanda Seyfreid. Not thrilled with Scarlett Johanssen or Rebecca Hall, either. I like Michelle Williams, but not for this part. Natalie Portman is my choice of the actors mentioned for Daisy so far.

    Speaking of Leo movies, the Chicago Sun-Times had this background info on Devil in the White City. It looks like it already has a director and he’s raring to go. I wonder if Leo is really going to shoot three movies next year? I suppose this is what he meant when he said he wanted to focus on his work and not miss out on any opportunities!

    kristin Says:

    I think Blake would be good against Leo. Definitely a better choice than Scarlett (can’t act at all), Natalie (boring) and Michelle Williams (good but not right for the role). I like Amanda Seyfreid but she comes off so young and Blake can play older (and better against Leo).

    Jokergurl Says:

    I agree with JC Leonardo DiCaprio is very powerful actor, and not just anybody can be opposite of him on screen I think a more established actress should get this role.

    Payday Says:

    A great big pass on this one. There is no way in helll that Leo Dicraprio can erase the memory of Robert Redford as Gatsby. Do directors have no imagination in choosing their actors anymore? There are plenty of actors that would be better suited for the role. I’m sick of seeing LDs bloated toad face everywhere. It’s overkill, dammit.

    Great new for Leo. I not sure about Blake, I don’t think she’s a good actress ( from what I’ve seen), and it will be akward to me to see her opposites Leo. But who knows…

    I can’t take it. Is she supposed to be a serious actress now or something????

  86. 86
    Nick Says:

    Why didn’t the article mention that this is merely ANOTHER adaptation of “The Great Gatsby”? The last one starred Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, and Sam Waterston. I like Leo, but he seems a little old for Gatsby now, I think.

    LEONARDO DICAPRIO FAN Says:

    According to some people Natalie Portman is boring and too deep (whatever that means please don’t repeat it cause you are making a GREAT fool of yourself.), Tobey Maguire is not that good actor either, Amanda Seifried is too youg and Blake Lively – well she is better looking than bar and that’s why definetely no-no.
    You guys don’t even like Leonardo DiCaprio as an actor, you don’t like him at all – but only because he is dating Bar he is perfect. When they broke up there were tons of negative comments on him – how he wasn’t that good looking, overrated as an actor, etc…
    IF YOU LACK INTELLIGENCE AT LEAST DON’T SHOW IT THAT OBVIOUSLY.
    DO YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW THAT TOBEY MAGUIRE RECEIVED A GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION LAST YEAR???
    Oh, god, this is sooo ridiculous I can’t even laugh. They are so stupid, ignorant, uneducated people – and the worst of all -they aren’t even ashamed to admit it.

    @LEONARDO DICAPRIO FAN:

    just because you like Natalie Portman doesn’t mean everyone else has to. She’s not my firs pick either, and I agree that she’s too serious ..she doesn’t show enough emotion in her roles imo. She always has the same expression on her face most of the time. Sorry if that offends you but everyone is entitled to their own opinion .. I would much rather see the role go to Scarlett or Rachel… I don’t know what you’re talking about but most of the people here are fans of Leo, so I don’t understand what you’re so upset about…

    -According to New york daily news, Scarjo as Daisy:

    Scar-Jo’s rivals are said to include Michelle Williams, Amanda Seyfried and Blake Lively, but our source says the voluptuous vixen auditioned for Luhrmann opposite Leo DiCaprio (who will play Jay Gatsby) at a digital film studio in SoHo on Monday and was “very happy” with how it went.

    Afterward, paparazzi shot Leo and Baz having lunch at Cafe Gitane. Johansson didn’t join them, but hopefully she’ll be in the frame when the cameras roll.

    betty Says:

    I don’t know about blake but whats really important is the combi of Blake and Leo. That lunch to see if they connect I can see that better the with Amanda S. I think Leo is a great actor and he has the charming factor in his roles, yes Robert is a different charm more romantic than Leo.

    Laura Says:

    Amanda is a much better choice. Blake doesnt look like she is from the roaring 20′s..but Amanda can pull that off. Hope the right people are cast..like Leo-perfect!!! I can’t wait for this movie either way!

    ++Logan++ Says:

    I think she’s gorgeous, BUT putting Blake in The Great Gatsby is a very, very bad idea. Clearly she got this part with her looks. Leo on the other hand has been in the industry for years and has been in countless hit movies, so he is an obvious choice.

    ... Says:

    If Blake is gonna be Daisy I`m definitely NOT going to see this movie even though I like Leo as an actor. She is so not right for that part and I doubt I could suffer through a whole movie watching this annoying `actress`.
    But if the DailyNews article is correct Blake doesn`t have the part yet – dinner or not. Scralett is a much better choice than Blake but I really would like to see Natalie as Daisy.
    The truth is ALL the actresses being considered for this role are way too young next to Leo.

  118. 118
    ??? Says:

    I assume that Baz and Leo met all the actresses considered for the role but the only time it made it to the gossip sites is when Blake Lively had dinner with the director and the leading man. I bet this publicity works for this newly single wannabe actress. Her being Daisy is so absurd that I have to question Baz and Leo`s sanity even for considering her. This has to be a joke!
    Daisy should be someone closer to Leo`s age.

Rachel McAdams would be an exquisite choice. beautiful,talented and suits the classic look to perfection. Blake she is a star in the making.
    People assume she is a *wh*re over Leighton bc she is tall,tanned and blonde. plain jane brunettes with fat doll faces like leighton are more relate able than a girl like Blake, lol lets face it.

    I would love to see Leo dump Barf for Blake.

    Wow, it seems like a Leighton-hater is here. LOL!
    Blake as an actress is a joke. She is annoying without any talent except for her girl. Leo seems to prefer women who base their careers on their implants ( Bar and Blake )… Leo and Blake a couple? Yet another joke!

    I really like the Great Gatsby and think Baz would make a great movie and I also think Leo would be good if not great. He has proven himself to be a decent actor but Blake on the other hand would be a real disappointment to any fan of the book because she cant act to save her life. Yes she is beautiful and Vogue and Ben Affleck seem to want to push her down our throats with how great and down to earth she is but its getting tiring. It is sad that to become high profile now a days all that is required is beauty and expensive clothes for everyone to become A list as Blake has. How superficial we all have become that talent is not what gets you any where in life. There are the Scarlet Johansons, Blake Lively, and Megan Fox’s of this world that get far on what? all because the media overhypes them and tries to convince us how great they are >NOT

    Yeah, Leo is getting old and this 20-something wannabe looks way older than her real age is so they would be a great pair. Leo likes women who look much older than their real age ( = his girlfriend, Bar is the best example ). Blake can`t act at all but it seems she has a good PR team. Blake as an actress in a movie like this = a little girl trying on her mommy`s clothes pretending to be an adult. Someone should wake Cinderella and send her back to the Gossip Girl set. That`s exactly where she belongs.

Hopefully she is not cast because the book is great but the sad truth is Baz has cast a dull actress before, ie NICOLE KIDMAN in Moulin Rouge and Australia. She is the worst actress out there. Baz has bad judgement, taste, you get the point. He will end up casting her and praise her but when the movie rolls around fans will be disappointed with how she butchers the role. At least give it to Seyfried she has progressively gotten better as an actress or Portman. Please not Lively or Scarlet

    dr brown Says:

    Hi Team Leo!
    (Friendly waves and good vibes to SMH, CanadaGirl, Brasil, Red Velvet, Tinkerbell, Leo Dicaprio Fan etc). I really hope that they get this Daisy thing right. Adapting a classic is risky enough let alone one that has had a famous adaptation already. I have no preference as to whether the part is played by an established hollywood player or an unknown but whoever plays Daisy (especially opposite Leo as Jay) needs to be an ACTRESS. The Great Gatsby should not be something that you break your teeth on.

    Either way, Leo seems to have a lot of brilliant stuff coming up which I am really looking forward to and should result in a lot of screen time :)
    I wonder what order the projects will be be done in? I read in the Chicago Sun times that Michael Shamberg (who is currently producing Soderberg’ ‘contagion’ and will be one of the producers on devil in the white city) said that the hope is to get to work on the project asap. Of course, Leo may have to change his physicality for Hoover. So, who knows what way around the projects will be done. But I am looking forward to them nonetheless. Have a lovely weekend. xo

  183. 183
    Red Velvet Says:

    Thank for the shout out dr brown.
    I really hope they get the right actress for Daisy too, because sometimes even though the movie is good and majority of the cast is fit, if one of the main is totally mis-casted, the movie will be a total disaster. Like john wayne as Genghis Khan, for me it’s WAY to weird and a major turn-off.

  184. 184
    dr brown Says:

    @Red Velvet: Hi Red Velvet. Exactly! I think we need to keep our fingers crossed on this one. If they get it wrong, it could be a real problem and that would be such a shame.

    It can be really distracting and disappointing when all of the cast is not right. I remember the first time I watched gangs of new york (which I love by the way). As an Irish woman myself I remember not particularly ‘feeling’ Cameron Diaz in the roll of Jenny. I know that she seems lovely and lots of fun in real life and that she and Leo get along really well but there just did n’t seem to be enough warmth, depth or damage if that makes since. Therefore, while I cared about Amsterdam I did not really connect with the love story. In fact, when I wernt to the cinema to watch that film I distinctly recall several of the men around where I was sitting saying out loud “that should have been that girl from Titanic.’

    It can also be especially hard to cast right opposite Leo because there are few actresses who seem to hold their own. I remember on the red carpet at the london premiere of Revolutionary Road Leo specifically said that he would not and could not have done that piece of work with anyone other than Kate. Then on Charlie Rose he said that they felt able to jointly go to the places that they had to in that film because he knew that she was the actress who would be able to take all that he could throw at her and to give it right back to him.

    LEONARDO DICAPRIO FAN Says:

    It seems to me he always makes two movies in a row somehow- like he has 2 movies in one year, which is actually very rare. Even more rare is that both of them are successfull (like Catch me if you can and gangs of new york, Shutter island and Inception, etc).
    He has basically proven to be one good actor with brains. But I personally think his father has so much to do with this, since he is always his last advisor regarding movie projects (Leonardo said it himself in many interviews).
    My personally favourite Leonardo looks are:
    1) Marvin’s room
    2) Romeo and Juliet
    3) Blood diamond
    4)The Departed
    But his german grandmother Helena (she past away as you know) always told him – she liked his looks in Titanic and she always told him she wanted him to have same haircut as then. He actually todl that on the German TV in an interview, he joked about it.
    The only thing that I don’t like about him, is that even in professional interviews he is always dead serious, never makes even innocent jokes and has this look on his face, as if he isn’t even there. Maybe 4-5 years ago it wasn’t so, but in the last couple of years he especially only says one and the same line over and over.
    But of, course, he is a great actor etc etc so every movie with him is a-must-see-intelligent-kind-of-movie.

    dr brown Says:

    @CanadaGirl: Hi CanadaGirl, SMH and the rest of team Leo! Sorry I could n’d reply sooner (I’ve no computer at home). Anyway, this thing about Leo going to Israel – obviously until we see photos of anything, we can’t confirm it. However, I thought I would share the information that I found anyway with the proviso that we cannot check it’s authenticity but here goes. Leo’s Yuku fansite is full of pepole (unlike most of us here) who like Bar and so they post articles from the Israeli media all the time.

    According to an Israeli article (http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3980460,00html) Leo arrived in Israel (Saturday I think) to collect Bar and they will go from Israel to Egypt on holiday together to celebrate his 36th birthday (his birthday is this coming thursday).

    The Israeli media is also apparently saying that Bar has been unabled to return to the USA over this last few weeks because of “bureaucratic” problems. However, there is no more detail given on this).

    I recall posts on here earlier this year telling us that Bar would be out of Leo’s life by his 36th birthday. Unfortunately, this does not seem to have happened. It is so sad that a man so talented and admirable in many ways has such poor taste in women. I hope all comes right in the end.

    Ultimately, of course, whereever Leo is right now be it Israel, Egypt or somewhere else, he has to be back in L.A. by 14 November because this is when he is due to appear in person (with Scorsese appearing via satellite link from London where he is filming Hugo Caberet) at the end of American Cinematique’s 2 day (13-14 Nov) retrospective of the Scorses/Dicaprio collaborations.

    I suppose we should all brace ourselves for some Leo and Bar pics soon just in case the Israeli reports are right. As if it’s not bad enough that it’s monday morning (:

If he has n’t been seen around LA or NYC for a while, he may be with her. Who knows? Either way, he will be back in LA for the American Cinematique event at the weekend. We should at least get pics of him from that.

    @ dr brown: You are right. Unfortunately there`s a good chance that he is with her and it`s good to know that soon he`ll be home. But wouldn`t it be just awesome if he stopped wasting time with bar and finally start dating a decent and intelligent woman?

  202. 202
    dr brown Says:

    @ginette: Hi ginette. Yes that would indeed be fantastic and would make a welcome and refreshing change. Leo knows what it is to have loving, decent, intelligent and talented women in his life (his mother, is late grandmother, his friend kate who he has indicated is not just one of his dearest and closed friends (Esquire and other interviews) but is also like a sister to him (the oscar round table 2005)). This makes his dating choices all the harder to understand given that he sticks with these people (albeit on /off) for quite a long time. Let’s hope he does n’t dilute his genes by having babies with the sort of girl he normally dates (esp. Bar)

    Hi Team Leo. Hope you are all well.
    Still no pics to enable us to confirm or deny these reports from Israel. However, the Israeli media is reporting that Leo, Bar, Irmelin, Kevin Connolly have been in Cairo. The reports claim that instead of going on to Jordan as initially planned, they will return to Israel where they will stay at/visit Bar’s new apartment and do some sightseeing. These reports might just be rubbish but if it is true, it’s depressing. Leo’s choices in his private life do take some of the shine of his very bright star IMO. That’s a shame. Please God – let him come to his senses asap.
    However, if the reports are correct, then someone is feeding the media some very specific information. Like to take a guess anyone? I think it may take us a matter of seconds to draw up that list don’t you?

    @dr brown: IF it`s true. so far no sight of any of them anywhere. plus the article says they are staying in israel for a week ( if i remember well ) but leo has to be back in la by sunday ( that scorsese thing ). you`re right if it`s true someone is leaking this info to the media but this wouldn`t be the first time the israeli sites post things that are not true. whether he is there or not it is already disappointing what poor choice he made in his private life.

    ;) Says:

    yeah, i remembered well. according to this site ( and now another one, the israeli E! ) says leo and bar are going to be back in israel on thursday or friday ( with his mom and kevin connolly ) and stay for a week.
    i wonder where did they get this info and if it`s correct. leo is supposed to be in la on sunday for an event. we`ll have to wait and see…

    Hot in the Middle East: Leo will celebrate 36 with bar

    Movie star and her partner of Bar Refaeli landed in Israel to celebrate 36th birthday with his wife again. This time he managed to escape the paparazzi, and probably his swan took a romantic trip to Cairo.

    After hours of rumors about Leonardo DiCaprio’s landed in, it’s time to clean up. Today (Saturday) afternoon Hollywood actor landed in Israel’s private plane to pick up Bar Refaeli holiday together, where they mark the 36th birthday of actor, extrusion Thursday near future.

    According to Rafaeli’s associates, DiCaprio arrived in Israel to visit his wife who spends three weeks in the country, and is currently bureaucratic problems that prevent it

    Return to the United States. Contrary to speculation that he spends Refaeli’s parents’ house in Hod Hasharon, they actually preferred to go along, probably a romantic trip to Cairo’s birthday celebrations Hollywood star. In addition, rumors emerged last week gossip sites abroad, of which DiCaprio has had hanging out with Blake Lively (“Gossip Girl”), which may shed further light on the nature of the visit brief.

    Remember, during his previous visit of DiCaprio in Israel three years ago, there was an embarrassing incident that came into violence involving a player’s security guards Israeli paparazzi. This time, it seems, he decided to skip the photos.

    The reaction of Tzipi Rafaeli, Bar’s mother, could not be reached until the announcement.

    dr brown Says:

    hi team leo. my comment is awaiting moderation for some reason so i’ll try again with the info. i read an article danny boyle (director of the beach) gave to movieline about his new film 127 hours. in it he calleed leo “an amazing actor.” he also said that if they gave oscars for the performance of the last 10 years, leo should get it for what’s eating gilbert grape? i agree. that is my favourite screen performance given by an actor of our generation.

    by the way if you guys are interested, leo is up for a people’s choice award (you can vote on their website).

    happy birthday leo! (may his 36th year bring continued sucess in work and if possible the development of better taste in women – please god!)

    Hi Team Leo. Hope you are all well.

    Leo did n’t appear at the American Cinemathque event in person. He appeared via Satellite from Tel Aviv.

    http://bit.ly/ds4FMV

    He is still in Tel Aviv staying at the Dan Hotel with his very unfortunate choice of girlfriend. This all means that the schedule publicised in the Isreali media last week (that he arrived in Israel before moving on to Egypt, then Jordan, then back to Israel where he is due to stay until around thursday of this week) was right. In other words, someone in Bar’s camp has a very big mouth. Not impressed as ever.

    It is also being reported that Leo and Baz both loved Scarlet Johannson for the role of Daisy after her screen test but a scheduling conflict looks like it may rule her out with Carey Mulligan said to be most lilely choice if ScarJo can’t do it. We’ll have to wait and see on this but that is the latest report.

    @219: there are photos of leo`s mom, irmelin and kevin connolly sightseeing in israel. i just assume that in that case leo is there and according to some site he spent the day with bar sightseeing somewhere else… he is there unfortunately. but it`s funny how quickly the new engagement rumors were shot down by a source in us weekly… lol

  221. 221
    dr brown Says:

    @……: I know we have n’t seen photos of him out and about over there. And believe me I would rather he was nowhere near Bar. However, Leo’s satellite link for the American Cinematheque event said that he was linking up from Tel Aviv. Also, there have been pictures of Irmelin (Leo’s mum) and Kevin Connolly out and about taking photos (the photos are posted on Leo’s Yuku fansite under the heading “Leo is in Israel”). I doubt that Irmelin and Kevin would be in Israel if Leo was not.

    apparently there are photos of leo and bar in israel on barrefaelionline . com but you have to register to see them. sorry. i didn`t want to believe it either but it is what it is. disappointing but what can you do?
    funny thing is that now that the engagement rumors are denied a new one is around… leo is planning to buy some land in israel to build a house for his future visits.

  223. 223
    dr brown Says:

    Team Leo – some info.

    Leo said during the American Cinematheque event that Hoover (or whatever Clint ends up calling the film) will start filming very soon maybe January/February.

    Baz Luhrmann has confirmed to Deadline.com that he has officially offered Carey Mulligan the part of Daisy in the Great Gatsby.

    @ ;) Hi there. I know his choice of girlfriends seriously disappoints as it does not match his taste or judgment in other areas of his life. But you are right – what can we do? Nothing unfortunately. I laughed at the spped of the engagement denials too but I did see the story about buying land.

    Hope all in team Leo are well. Take care.

    leo visited israel twice in 5 years. clearly he goes there so often that he needs to build a house there. and of course the media knows already where he looking. of course i believe it. lol engagement rumors shot down while he is still there so they need a new story to chew on…
    it is beyond disappointing, dr brown who he chooses to date. and the friends around him? i mean naomi campbell? the way he got out of this la personal appearance. i think he is a huge letdown.

    Source: Leonardo DiCaprio, Bar Rafaeli Aren’t Engaged

    Leo’s still in love — but he’s not getting ready for a walk down the aisle.

    Leonardo DiCaprio and model Bar Rafaeli are not engaged, a source close to the Inception star, 36, tells UsMagazine.com.

    The couple sparked new marriage rumors last week when they arrived — with DiCaprio’s mom, Irmelin — in Rafaeli’s native Israel, where they met with her parents.

    The source adds that it’s “just a vacation.”

    According to AOL News, the paparazzi-plagued couple has been traveling in Israel with a convoy of armored cars and security guards. Before their Israel sojourn the couple — celebrating DiCaprio’s birthday — hung out in Egypt and Jordan, joined by famous pals like Naomi Campbell and Kevin Connolly.

    Often the subject of matrimony talk, DiCaprio (who once dated Gisele Bundchen) and Rafaeli, 25, have dated for nearly five years; they split for six months back in 2009.

    “I am not thinking about getting married,” Rafaeli has said. “I’m still young. And when I do get engaged, I might even hide the ring. I want it to remain private.”

    Her mom, former model Tzipi Levine, told AOL she approved of DiCaprio as a potential son-in-law.

    “This is her choice. I’m happy for her when she’s happy. Any man is lucky to be dating my daughter,” she said.

    @ ;) don’t get me started on Naomi Campbell. On the LA event – the studio claims it was a plane issue, and that a satellite link was cheaper for them than arranging alternative transportation back to LA. Whatever is the truth there, the fact that Israeli media stated last week that Leo would be there until this thursday means this looks really bad. Not impressed.

  227. 227
    ;) Says:

    plane issue? of course. if someone doesn`t want to get on a plane to a certain direction that`s indeed an issue. lol on the other thread it was mentioned that he never intended to be there but saying he will he could distract the israeli media. every info about this trip posted one week prior to the event turned out to be true so this plane excuse is rather pathetic.

    there are lingerie photos of bar everywhere ( surprise! bar refaeli in underwear again! ) are they new? perfect timing to release them ( or re-release them if they are old ) when leo is in israel and all these rumors are around… who would have seen it coming?

    eureka Says:

    @ ;)
    I just checked the underwear pics you mentioned. Very poor quality, very cheap and airbrushed more than usual especially in the belly area.
    No surprise she is not working. That’s why she had to go back to Israel: there is no contract that can keep her in US, not even with her BF help.

  233. 233
    @french 229 Says:

    She is the only woman in the world that looks cheap and average in a Giorgio Armani outfit (not to mention the professional hairdo and makeup, the superb lights, the full photoshop and the super luxury maxiboat that were supposed to turn her into a classy and exclusive woman).
