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.

    Blake is definitly a better choice than Amanda. She just looks classier and would suit Leo much better.

    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.

    @SparklingTwinkle:

    NO.

    The director’s “whole crew was there,” the source says, adding that DiCaprio and Lively “didn’t leave together.”

    So what? Us Weekly says it so it`s true? What puts that tabloid over Lainey? Us Weekly got stories wrong before so how can you say it so categorically that it`s not true? It`s all tabloids so take it easy! lol

    I wish Blake would remove that ugly mole next to her nose – Soooo distracting.

    Becky Says:

    Sorry, but her whole head should be removed. Blake irritates me so much I find it impossible to watch anything with her in it. If she gets the role that would mean Baz completely lost his mind. Definitely not a go see movie for me.
    But either way with this dinner she gained a lot of attention and publicity that will forward her career in spite the fact that she is not a good actress.

    Sarah Says:

    What’s with all the haters? Is everyone judging her from two things; Gossip Girl and The Town? She’s not very good in Gossip Girl but that’s mostly because her character is an idiot. I thought she was alright in The Town but not that best. Can’t you just give her chance? Jeez.

    SparklingTwinkle Says:

    Blake said on letterman hat Leo was her highschool crush.
    yes, it was no dinner for two but they did leave together. but i think it’s just an affaire, blake is not really his type, shes not excotic looking and has fake bubbly boobs.

    Lea Says:

    lmao @ everyone in this post.

    I don’t know much about her but based on watching her appearances on Letterman and Fallon, she seems really sweet and fun so I don’t get the hate?

    Don’t know much about BL to be honest. Don’t watch gossip girl over here much

    @138 Says:

    Interesting, your description ( not exotic looking, has fake boobs, no charisma ) perfectly fits Leo`s girlfriend, Bar.
    Blake is not an actress just a wannabe.

    LEO IS THE BEST . THE MOST BRILLIANT ACTOR OF HIS GENERATION. NO ONE COMES CLOSE TO HIM.

    caleb Says:

    She seems nice and charming but people dont like her because she cant act. It is difficult to see someone advance in such a way as Blake has and the attention she gets when she is a very bad actress but thats the way it goes these days their is genuine talent and then people like Blake who have to dress to get talked about and then they become fashionistas and slowly invade the business. 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

    I remember there was a pic of Bar with Blake for the little angels benefit Ball. They probably all know eachother. Bar Refaeli is so pretty. Maybe Bar should be Daisy?? It would be cool to see real life couple Bar and Leo on the screen together!! Has Bar ever acted before!

    Speed Says:

    I remember there was a picture of Leo’s girl Bar with Blake some time ago. I think Bar Refaeli is so pretty. I think Bar has the look for Daisy and It would be cool to see a real life couple play opposite eachother. Has Bar ever acted before?

    @Speed:
    i don’t know if Bar has ever acted before.. don’t know much about her career and what not. But she sure is really pretty… but i bet leo wouldn’t like the idea of working with his girlfriend in real life. That is weird for an actor. i know others have done it but still…

    Blake looks really old for her age but then Leo is like pushing 40….. i think Blake can fit the role of Daisy… i liked her performance in The Town..
