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.

Okay, first we had to deal with the Bar-flies now the Blake-bots. Wtf is happening on this thread?
We posters don’t decide if she gets the role- BAZ DOES, so posting that she’s great ISN’T getting her the part.
How many parents and publicists can one thread take? Craziness.

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).

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.

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…

And I don’t want to hear any romance rumors please, thanks.

why does everyone hate her? ive never seen her on tv but she was great in the town

Leighton is the one with the sextape and somehow blake gets called the ****?

NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t want her anywhere near Leo. First Ryan and now this…who’s next? Brad Pitt?

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

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.

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…
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.

Natalie Portman:
Oscar nominated: Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role
for: Closer (2004/I).
BAFTA Film Award -nominated
Golden Globe -nominated once, won once
MTV Movie Award -nominated
Saturn award- won
Teen Choice Award -won and nominated variousa times
Do you happen to know a movie called Star wars – very boring movie indeed!

lol I see that Leighton fans are still bitter as ever. Blake is and always will be the more famous one, get over it.


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…

Oh this screams Rachel McAdams.

Whoever gets these roles will never measure up to the original. I think Leo is a great actor, maybe he could pull it off. But Blake Lively…, I think there’s potential she’d win a razzy for this one.

@huh??: I agree. Im not a fan of Natalie but that doesn’t mean I want her to die in a pit of fire. Honestly people don’t respect different tastes.

Blair Waldorf fans are crying their eyes out.

@Celia: Oh sweetie she is friends with ryan ONLY. Fan girls dont be jealous cuz your ass will never marry ryan or leo.

Its sad people resort to calling other women ****** and other vile things because they are successful AND beautiful. What a shame.

@noooo: Oh and you won’t get old?…dumbass!

My gosh! There are so many haters here. Come on guys! She’s a good actress. She doesn’t use her boobs for anything. Don’t be jealous and PLEASE mind your own business..

People are so insecure of her. GET A LIFE!

Blake is perfect
