Okay, girls, now's your chance: Leonardo DiCaprio is a single man again. E! News reported Friday that the actor and his girlfriend, model Erin Heatherton, have split. The two had been together since late last year, after DiCaprio dated Blake Lively.
Apparently DiCaprio, 37, and Heatherton, 23, broke up a few weeks ago, and it was totally amicable. So why did they call it quits? Seems it's the usual Hollywood story: conflicting schedules and too much time apart. Leo was away in Australia shooting The Great Gatsby for several months last year, and then earlier this year he was in New Orleans filming Quentin Tarantino's latest flick, Django Unchained (set for release this Christmas).
As for Heatherton, she's a Victoria's Secret model (of course). So, you know, maybe after long days posing in front of the cameras she just got tired of sitting around the house, still in her lingerie, waiting for Leo to come back. (Just a fantasy--er, theory.) Long-distance relationships are rough, folks.
Poor Leonardo DiCaprio, you might be saying. He just can't seem to catch a break when it comes to love! Will the stars ever align for this eternal bachelor? There was Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli and, well, too many other gorgeous women to mention. Face it, just the list of Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated models alone is longer than most men's entire dating history. So yeah, forget feeling sorry for Leo. He's doing just fine.
Stay tuned for news of Mr. DiCaprio's next outrageously hot girlfriend! That should be coming up in, oh, about a week from now.
