Leonardo DiCaprio’s Girlfriend Is Sad That He Doesn’t Bathe

A photo of Leonardo DiCaprio

And yes, I went all the way back to July of last year to find a good photo of Leo looking like he needed a good scrubbing. What of it?

Ok, here’s the story. Leonardo DiCaprio has a new girlfriend. She’s a Victoria’s Secret model (surprise!) named Erin Heatherton, who is gorgeous and also enjoys bathing frequently. Leonardo DiCapro, on the other hand, is not a Victoria’s Secret model who is ok looking and would rather just not when it comes to taking a shower. You can see where the issues would arise, right?

From The National Enquirer via Celebitchy:

Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend is making a huge stink over his hygiene! Leo avoids underarm deodorant and daily showers in his bid to help save the planet – but his personal environment has completely turned off his gorgeous galpal, model Erin Heatherton, say sources.

Erin is nauseated by his abbreviated bathing schedule, not to mention the rancid recyclables that pile up at his house, according to insiders.

“Leo has let his love for the environment take over his whole world, and it’s killing his love life,” a friend told The Enquirer. “He only showers a couple of days a week to conserve water, and he considers deodorant to be ‘unnatural’.”

Leo is also an avid recycler, but sources say he often misses the pickup days, and the rotting refuse results in a funky-smelling kitchen. Leo went “green” years ago, but his environmental obsession is giving Erin that sinking feeling. And that’s bad news for Leo, because it’s said he’s finally ready to settle down.

“Erin loves him dearly, but she’s starting to feel like Leo loves the environment more than her!” noted the friend. “Eric has warned him to clean up his act and his hygiene… if not, he may wind up chasing off the woman of his dreams.”

Ok, I’m going to take a moment to be completely real and say that sometimes I only shower every other day. Those times include the time that I was too depressed to do anything but sleep, watch Roseanne reruns and eat ice cream, and the time that I hurt my back and literally the only way I got out of bed was by my boyfriend picking me up while I was screaming and crying. But also, sometimes I just don’t leave the house. Sometimes all I do during an entire day is talk to you guys, play with my guinea pigs, and watch Lifetime movies, and I don’t feel bad about skipping a shower then.

But this isn’t about me, this is about Leonardo DiCaprio and about how our situations are not the same. There’s a difference between letting a day go by without bathing and letting rotting garbage pile up in your house, right? One is like “whatever, get off your ass and get in the shower,” and the other is more like “you have a problem, and also you have a desperate need for cologne.” And I don’t think it’s totally shallow for that last one to be a deal breaker for Leo’s girlfriend, do you?

  • Why does everyone think in order to be clean you have to shower every day? It’s just pointless and wasteful.

    I shower 2 times a week and my hair and skin look great and I also smell nice. Granted, I do wear deodorant.

    Hot water and soap fuck with your skin’s natural oils and can make you smell worse, not better.

    The real issue is with the stinky recyclables, not Leo’s stinky self.

  • I shower every day, but I only wash my hair every other day. On the weekends, I like to not wash it at all. It’s mainly to concerve my color (I dye it red and shampooing every day will ruin the color).

  • I wash every day and take a shower about 3-4 times a week in winter and wash my hair less than that but I am clean. Not because I am trying to conserve water but I have dry skin and curly dry hair. I also use deodorant. He just sounds gross. Recyclables need to be rinsed and stored somewhere other than the kitchen. That is unsanitary to leave them sitting around.

  • Being half Italian forces me to shower everyday :(. I’ll start to smell like a sub otherwise

      • @Anymous 3/25 ’12
        & AnonymouS 3/28/12,

        You White women will stop at NOTHING to sink your claws into a man’s money & portfolio. You know he’s rich so now he beautiful. Sad for you, he only dates models & wouldn’t look twice at you, much like your owns husbands, probably. Zac Efron is handsime, not Leo.

  • This is crap. notice its national enquirer if she even said anything ever i’m willing to guess it wasnt public. secondly hes a smoker so hes not that conserned with the environment. i only shower when i need to. my kids only shower when they need to often they just take a bath together once maybe twice a week. Your not supposed to shower everyday. seriously not just not wash your hair but shower. its bad for your skin and hair if you shower everyday. however if you have a job where after eight hours of work your covered in grime of one kind or another its one thing but those of us who rarely break a sweat and probably only have to deal with dust at work dont need to.
    as far as the at home stuff i’m willing to guess hes probably not there to often and he most likely has a housekeeper keeping the place tidy whether or not he is there. I’m willing to guess that the gf doesnt even know about this hygiene problem.

  • Great post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Very useful info specifically the last section :) I care for such information a lot. I used to be seeking this certain info for a long time. Thanks and good luck.

  • i think leo is fine! its just the recyclables. erin and leo are cute and stuff but she is a little too picky for his liking or mine. i shower like every other day but i have to wash my hair everyday because its super long (goes to the bottom of my rib cage) if i dont it becomes oily. but hot water and soap are unnatural and so is deoderant! erin s just being a bitch

  • A man needs to wash his sac and pits at least once a day
    Crust comes before the enviornment!!

  • First of you need to bath or at least rinse daily. We do not live in a clean and pollutant free world. You skin us the larges organ of your body and the only one that you can see. You wouldn’t sit your liver in poison all day and just dust it off. Organic soaps and baking soda are awesome for your skin I don’t was my hair every day but I do rinse the gross off considering that you skin breaths and pollution causes dry skin and pimpls due to your pores opening up. Not to mention you crap every day and in my line of work I know for a fact people don’t wipe their ass correctly.

  • leo is very rich im sure he has maids that do his recycling and his house and any thing eles he so desires

  • Pig, and it is even worst to read about someone else posting that he or she only takes a shower 4 to 5 days of a 7 days week because is winter time. As a minimum a shower a day pigs, no matter what and preferable to use water and soap to wash your behind every time you poop rather than using sanitary paper and clean you bath tub weekly and do not double dip your spoons in the food while cooking.

  • i shower everday but i never use shampoo. I just rinse and scrub real well. When I used shampoo regularly i had super dry hair and mad dandruff. Shampoo is super bad for you and fucks with the nat oils in the hair. So ya don’t use the shamp

  • ‘Leonardo Di Caprio’ concerned with the environment!

    He has been captured boarding six private jets within the space of six weeks to varying destinations. Private jets emit more CO2 in an hour that most Africans do in a year. So much for the saving planet, Leo. Actions always speak louder than words!

    He is a multi-millionaire who lives a super abundantly luxurious lifestyle – while preaching to other people the importance of cutting back on their carbon emissions as well as everything else connected to the environment.

    Not showering daily is just lazy and is not going to make the slightest bit of difference in real world terms.

    What is it with these self-righteous do-gooders. Everyone nowadays is on a mission to save something. Save the whales, save the birds, save the bee’s, save the ‘forest’s’ and the greatest conceit of them all ‘save the planet’. We haven’t even learnt how to care for each other properly yet, much less save the planet.

    A wise quote in summary from ‘H.L Mencken’: ‘The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule it’.

    • leo, i read your comments about showering, and i read, my boyfriend pick me up, are u to going steady
