    Leo looks better than ever. So youthful! His beautiful blondes locks flowing with the wind! Good to see him with his bestie rather than his one night stand!

  • L

    @shay Totally agree! Baz Luhrmann was smart, he hired an actress instead of someone who sleeps her way through hollywood.

  • sab

    Tobey is a godawful actor who clearly got this role thanks to Leonardo.

  • Fan of Leo

    Thanks JJ! It must be so cool for these two great friends to work together one the same movie. Especially since they’re soooo away from home.

  • clamity

    very nice can’t wait for this movie :D

  • Cammie

    Awww. Leo let go of his slick hairdo

  • JAN

    I can’t wait to see Leo and Carey in costumes…

  • http://aol Patti

    It is nice that Leo and Tobey can work together. They are really good friends from childhood.

  • shoki

    he will have gorgeous blonde babies one day. Maybe he does not want a brunette girlfriend because his kids could be hairy little monsters, already with mustaches at age 3.

  • YUMMY

    I look at Leo and I see exactly the kind of man I want in my life. Handsome, successful, funny, educated, close to family and friends… God, is ask too much?

  • E

    @YUMMY:
    Educated???! As far as I know he graduated only high school… Don’t I know something maybe ?

  • YUMMY

    @E Polite person, gentle… idiot! Can’t you read? And who said only the university can educate people? I know many students who are so stupid… so far, you’ve no idea how. People are educated for life too… we learned a lot more out of college, with the experiences of life. These lessons have you missed.

  • TheTruthIs

    I wonder if LA paparazzi followed him to Australia or is that actually shots made by the local paps.

  • E

    @YUMMY:
    You talk about life wisdom, not about education. This are different things. And don’t forget thanks to higher educated people you have an opportunity now to watch pictures, read news and write your comments on this site. I didn’t mean Leo is stupid, he is a clever and well-read guy. But i think he need a good education. It wil help him to systematize his knowledge and raise him to a much higher level. He communicate with many clever people – businessmen and also politicians; and he must have the same level what they have to feel with confidence in this environment. I would be happy if he instead of wasting time in the bars between shootings start studies at any university.

  • piedpiper

    @E:

    You make a good point. Maybe with some education he can gain the confidence he needs to start dating actual women and not little girls. I always thought the reason his girlfriends were so young and dumb is to make him look and feel smarter.

  • SM question

    i think this is the role that will really capture mr dicaprio. cant wait to see this film.

  • larson

    You know what, this is a damn shame. If Blake was in this post, posting would have at least 200 posts by now. Blake is really bad for business. No one is even visiting his posts unless her name is attached.

  • YUMMY

    @E Don’t be ridiculous. When I spoke about education, I was talking about being a kind person who knows how to treat people, I was not talking about studies. I don’t think Leo needs to go to college to show he’s smart and advance in their profession… he’s successful. And I didn’t say that the studies aren’t important… I’m in college. But the fact that a person has a degree doesn’t define it as better or smarter than anyone. For some it’s a life choice and others simply have no choice. Studies are really very important, but being an polite person and be kind, in my opinion, is much more important… is this, after all, that define us as people. A diploma on the wall doesn’t change anything at the time of trial, but our attitudes, oh yeah, change everything. And I will not discuss it with you… is my opinion and I don’t need your approval and you don’t need agree with me, just ignore if you want. You answered my comment first, so I answered the yours. Give me a break… I have no patience for this kind of discussion. It’s enough for me.

  • YUMMY

    I agree, @Larson. I prefer comment on these posts, talking about his work or stuff like that. But people here are so concerned about his personal life that they forget that he has a profession. It’s much more interesting discuss this post… but people keep commenting about that one, on Umami Burger.

  • not true

    @YUMMY:

    that’s not true. they’re not talking about Blake on the Umami thread, they’re talking about Leo and his future soulmate, numerology, astrology, 2012, and other topics. Probably they stay on that thread to continue on with the discussion rather than moving to a new thread where people won’t be following along with the conversation. It makes more sense to continue the discussion on the old thread. It has nothing to do with Blake.

  • YUMMY

    @not true… So, I’m sorry. I had no idea… was wrong, I assume. No problem.

  • sos

    Yep,they are in a serious discussion over there,interesting stuff.Nice another Leo/Gatsby post!I see the Greek tweets were false.That car is really cool looking.Can’t wait to see some professional shot stills.

  • SM question

    as much as i love reading and talking about Leo’s future mate. Why dont we discuss his movies. I think I’m going to see the original Great Gatsby online. I saw it in school but I want to envision Leo as Gatsby already.

    How do you guys feel about Inception? Do you think he was stuck in limbo world at the end or did he come back?

  • not true

    @YUMMY:

    no problem :)

  • not true

    @SM question:

    you must watch Gatsby if you haven’t done so already. You will fall in love with that character and it will make you all the more excited to see this movie, trust me :)

    I think he was stuck in limbo for sure, the totem kept rolling at the end…so yeah, he got stuck ..

  • SM question

    I watched the original back in school but its been a while lol. i have to see it again because even though i know nothing beats original movies, i have a feeling this one is going to make everyone fall in love with Leo again like they did back in R&J or Titanic. =)

  • SM question

    im watching inception now and i agree with you. plus i just realized the kids voices sound older than when he remembers/sees them

  • sos

    I don’t know the totem did kind of wobble at the end??Which made me think he got out.I need to re-watch Gatsby,it’s been a long time since I’ve seen it.

  • SM question

    it wobbled and looked like it would stop but then the credits rolled. we will never know. maybe christopher nolan will tell us 25 years from now lol.

    leo is such a great actor but i have to say, i’d really love to see him in some comedic part. even if its a cameo. im actually a little surprised he hasnt made a cameo in Entourage. Its sort of up his alley

  • sab

    @SM question:
    i think he got stuck in limbo too…………….but even more than that…………why were his kids (in inception) always in the same outfit……..everytime …..they were wearing the same clothes?????….and also at the end they were in the same clothes that that they were wearing when he had to leave them in the first place…..im not sure if that was chris nolan’s intention, to confuse the audience……….probably was…………(it sure as hell confused me)……………also, you know when ever he remembered the kids the last time he saw them, they were in the garden playing on the grass………………….well, i assumed they lived in an apartment on the top floor (or on upper floor)……how did they have such convenient access to a garden?????………………….was it because they were always in limbo (or dream state)……therefore anything is possible???……………just things that i noticed……not sure if anyone else noticed these too….

  • not true

    @SM question:

    I agree SM, this will definitely make people fall in love with him. Who wouldn’t fall in love with Jay Gatsby, and even more so Leo as Jay Gatsby? lol I’m going to have to watch that movie again myself :)

  • SM question

    @not true: And to think. We only have to wait another year lol. Such a long wait

  • Daisy
  • not true

    @SM question:

    My favorite scene is when Nick says to Jay, “you’re worth the whole damn bunch put together”… that part it like makes my heart sink every time I hear that… I also think Tobey was perfectly cast for the role, he even has that same personality and look as the Nick in the original. I really can’t wait to see this movie. :)

    here’s the scene starting at 1:18 to 2: 20…

  • not true

    @SM question:

    I know, it’s too long of a wait… :S what to do, what to do… LOL

  • SM question

    @not true:

    OH yes, Tobey was perfectly casted. I cant wait to see them work together. Theyve been friends forever and i think this is the first time they do a movie with each other (i think). This is going to be a great picture. No wonder he looks so excited in those pictures

  • Elena

    @sab: oh snap, those were some good catches! i already thought he got stuck in limbo but i didn’t notice his kids were in the same clothes, now i’m sure he was still in dreamland when the movie ended!

  • larson

    Guys if you go to the inception imdb board, the thing with the clothes is explained. They are not the same, they just look similar, which was done on purpose. I think that movie had a couple of plot holes so I truly don’t know what to believe at the end.

  • ichi

    @E: Sorry, but I don’t see necessary for him go to the university, his an actor, that is his career, I don’t see the point to study someting just for have the diploma on the wall, because is obvious he like what he does, so he is one of the best, and also a lot of people study for been actor but him has a gift, I have a conventional career I’m a lawyer, and don’t get me wrong but the major time just because you have a college education it doesn’t mean that you will be the best and also less dumb!

  • just say

    @Daisy:he looks happy and as i see these pics of leo , he looks at paps and smile/shakes hands for them! is he has this tread when he is at work?anybody knows?!
    if this is first time so maybe leo def. changed somehow!u know what i mean?can somebody say he almost has laugh for pops in front of paps in his movies?if it was in the street in a usual day with one of his best friends with these happy face and look at cams like this i would say he did broke up thats why he is so happy /at least wants to show it because he always has this tread in front of paps just when he break up and is def. free!meybe this time again there’s something that we don’t know yet!maybe he changed as i said! or maybe i’m wrong and he has this tread always when he is at work and i didn’t know that,yet!which one?! would some one say it?!thanks!

  • or maybe

    @just say:

    or maybe its just a different surrounding all together. Paps over there maybe kept their distance and said Welcome to Australia so he didnt want to snub them. Like you said he’s working so its a diff story. Doubt they “broke” up yet.

    i’ve read the article of leo’s gift for bl’s dad! it was in his b-day(agus 14) but now at the time of bl’s b-party time came out exactly after the time when bl’s pr wanted to show leo did bought a car for bl and it was showed false! i feel there’s something wrong cause why bl’s pr didn’t say nothing about leo’s gift to her for her b-day ,he got to did it before his travel to aussie but they just talked about a COMIC BOOK while his father bday was at agus 14(almost 10 days ago)! how they talk about everything in thier relationship so fast but this time they opened thier mouthes after 10 days! why after 10 days a witness got to talk! why her friends always say posetive and negative about them and almost it is from bl’s close friends?!and why almost of the times the news comes from us mag.?! i think he is not that smitten in love with her as just they say! maybe her pr wants to just link her to leo as whatever it can! maybe this relationship is just a pr deal( but why did leo accept it?!)! maybe her pr is just trying so hard to turn all articles from split or something like that to crazy love esp. these days when leo is so far from her as he always did with the other girls, to say he is in defferent mood this time just because of her and use him as much as they can for holding bl at the top of gossip sites for while till leo shows he dumps her and that time they will find a way to relate her to him for the first month or more as a victim or as she didn’t want him(as we see for ryan gos.) then another subject will come for her!i don’t know maybe i’m wrong and leo def. changed this time( i hope it be false)!u know better than me( because i came to see leo’s articles just for monthes), leo was always in split/far away from his ex-girls or even when he was around/had linked to them he never had that much attantion to them at all and if we look at leo for bl this time is look like his treads over his ex-girls! just his ex-girls didn’t had this power pr as bl’s!
    can u london-larson and……….. whom always r here and look after leo’s treads since long time ago say really what’s going on here?i’m wrong about leo?or u r confused like me and def feel u don’t know him at this point this time ?!or this is just pr which make every thing look different than before and in real leo is still in his treads over bl like his other girls?!

  • @just say

    That story about the gift to her father sounds BS. Tell me why would Leo, Lively, his mother and both her parents go to a Hollywood hotspot restaurant, Madeo, to PICK UP food but not eating there. And why would Leo give the guy his bday present in the middle of the restaurant while waiting for their food? The article said they left after they got their food for a private celebration so why not giving the gift in private? It doesn`t make sense at all. Not to mention Leo was seen at that restaurant alone ( tweet ) and he was seen leaving alone ( JJ has a post ). Nobody saw or mentioned his mother, Lively or her parents? It doesn`t add up to me… And this was like 2 weeks ago. Why post it so late?
    This romance sells at lest it did at the beginning. Now it`s indeed getting boring so who knows maybe it`s just a way to spice it up?
