Leonardo DiCaprio Quits Acting, Too

From Page Six:

This could be Leonardo DiCaprio’s last awards season for a while. The actor has announced he’s retiring from acting indefinitely. “I’m a little bit drained,” he told German newspaper Bild. “I am now going to take a long long break.”

After doing three films in two years – Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby and the recently-finished The Wolf of Wall Street – DiCaprio says, “I’m just worn out.”

Publicity tours for those films still loom, however, but DiCaprio, 38, has other plans for when his schedule slows down. “I would like to improve the world a bit,” he says. “I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”

In the meantime, he’s living green at home. “My roof is covered with solar panels,” he revealed. “My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometers a day. That can be done with a plug.”

I could think of a ton of other things you could do with that plug, too, Leo.

However, I guess the most appropriate question in this circumstance would be, “Can we live without Leonardo DiCaprio in cinema for at least a little while?”, to which the short answer is “Yes.” The long answer would be something like, “Why does it have to be for a little while,” or “At least until Baz Luhrmann dies, please.”

Leonardo DiCaprio is Free to Move On to the Next Victoria’s Secret Model

From E! Online:

The perennial bachelor and his latest very hot girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Erin Heatheron, have broken up, a source confirmed Friday to E! News. And, once again, after she had met his mom and everything!

DiCaprio and Heatherton coupled up late last year following the actor’s split from Blake Lively, and that coming shortly after his split from model Bar Refaeli. Before Refaeli, Gisele Bündchen was DiCaprio’s main squeeze for a good four years. He and Heatherton did the romantic-adventure thing in Mexico in January, with DiCaprio’s mom Irmelin even joining them on a zip-lining excursion.

But long-distance love is tough, and DiCaprio, who spent a large chunk of time shooting The Great Gatsby in Australia last year, was logging a lot of hours in New Orleans this spring filming Django Unchained. The source adds that the pair amicably called it quits a few weeks ago and there’s no ill will between them.
And there’s always late-night texting and ambiguous tweeting, just in case there is.

He certainly has a type, doesn’t he? Much like some OTHER actor we know (and whom I love)? Come on, guys, let’s mix it up once in awhile, can we? But anyway, I’ll bet the real reason they broke up is because Leonardo DiCaprio … well, I hear he kind of stinks. As in “smells,” and “reeks,” not makes bad Baz Luhrmann movies-stinks.

Regardless, who do you guys think Leonardo should date next? I’m all for him hooking up with Kate Winslet. She’s a single lady these days, isn’t she? A

‘The Great Gatsby’ Trailer is Here!

Wow. This is almost nothing like I envisioned it to be, but then again, we are talking Baz Luhrmann, who did ’96′s ‘Romeo+Juliet’, which was like an acid trip in a movie theater. Honestly, I’m kind of disappointed, because I think a lot could have been done with a ‘Great Gatsby‘ reboot, but now we won’t actually see my grand vision for at least another two decades when they decide to to a remake of the remake of the remake of the original once more.

I’m kidding. This movie and everything it entails looks absolutely amazing. Not amazing enough, you know, to go out and see it on Christmas Day or anything (who actually does that? Do you, or someone you know, go out and hit up the movie theater on Christmas Day or Christmas Night? Because I know that I’m usually cuddled up on the couch all day long eating and opening presents and drinking wine and watching fabulous movies that are hardly ever on network television and the last thing—the absolute last thing—I want to be doing is leaving the house for any particular reason whatsoever), but it looks pretty f-cking fabulous nevertheless.

Thoughts on that and, of course, thoughts on ‘The Great Gatsby’? Aside from how Leonardo DiCaprio was a brilliant choice for Jay Gatsby, and how Tobey Maguire still makes people want to slit their wrists because he sucks so hard?

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

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?

Stills from The Great Gatsby!

I don’t know about you guys, but when I heard that Leonardo DiCaprio was slated to play Jay Gatsby in Great Gatsby 2012, I was pretty stoked. I’m not a huge fan of Leonardo, but if I really thought hard about it, there probably wasn’t another snotty, pretentious actor who could really pull Gatsby off. Tobey Maguire cast as Nick Carraway, now, eh. I think they’d have been better advised to cast someone like – ahem – Ryan Gosling in the role of Nick Carraway, but hey. Life isn’t always fair and sometimes you end up with two main actors who think their shit doesn’t stink in a movie based on one of your favorite books.

Stick a Fork in ‘Em, They’re Done: Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio

Oh no, what’s Blake going to do now, aside from capitalize off of her COMPLETELY AWESOME nude photos? Continue doing the Gossip Girl thing, sans big-time-boyfriend fame? Find other yachts to hang out on in the Mediterranean? Do an album? Or hell, maybe she’ll fold the whole thing over and go the Michelle Williams route: writing love letters for a living. Or, OOH. Sous chef. Point is, Blake can’t act her way out of a home “photo shoot,” and the only thing she really had going over the past few months was the fact that a monster movie star boned her on the regular – one who didn’t try to cover it up, either.
