Leonardo – who has a relationship for several years with top Israeli model Bar Rafaeli – said: “I don’t know whether I’ll ever get married. I’ve seen too many supposedly happy marriages go down. I’ve been as shocked as anyone.
“No one can look at the marriages of other people and make a judgement. I don’t know the private lives o the actors I work with. I just know if they are good actors or good directors.”
He’s also unsure whether he would feel comfortable to shoot a love scene while his girlfriend. “It depends on the circumstances. “It all sounds very strange to people who’ve never been on a film set.
“There’s a group of people on one side of the camera and it’s all about lighting, angles, sound and getting your lines right,” said DiCaprio.

“They’ve been on lots of dates and get on really well. It’s early days for them but they enjoy each other’s company.”
“They have been desperate to keep the relationship under wraps so they’ve been a bit low-key so far.” “Louis has a good sense of humour and really is a lovely guy.”
“He loves to surf and he’s really quite engaging and very down-to-earth. He’s a good looking guy and gets lots of attention when he’s out and about – but he’s not your typical model. Not at all big-headed”, said the same source close to them.
