Leonardo DiCaprio looked through Victoria’s Secret catalogue on set

In an anecdote about the actor’s notorious penchant for dating younger models, ‘Blood Diamond’ filmmaker Edward Zwick has said he once caught Leonardo DiCaprio “paging through a Victoria’s Secret catalogue” on the set.



Leonardo DiCaprio is said to have spent time “paging through a Victoria’s Secret catalogue” on the set of one of his blockbusters.

Details of The 49-year-old actor’s penchant for dating models around half his age – many of whom have posed for the lingerie brand – was revealed by filmmaker Edward Zwick, 71, who shared the anecdote while writing about directing the Oscar-winner on 2006’s ‘Blood Diamond’ alongside 53-year-old Jennifer Connelly.

In his new book ‘Hits, Flops, and Other Illusions: My Fortysomething Years in Hollywood’, Edward said: “It seems Leo was currently between gorgeous girlfriends. One morning I walked into the makeup trailer as I often did to discuss the day's work with him.

“I found him in the chair waiting for his turn and noticed he was paging through a Victoria’s Secret catalogue.

“‘What are you doing?’ I asked. Connelly was in the chair beside him. Without even looking over, she said, ‘Shopping.’”

Edward added there was only “one instance of even the mildest misbehaviour” on his set, adding about the ‘Blood Diamond’ cast: “It’s more a testament to their camaraderie than anything else.”

Leonardo has been slammed by some for his habit of dating younger, beautiful women who he tends to break up with once they turn 25.

His model exes have included Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, Erin Heatherton, Gisele Bündchen and Bar Refaeli, and his latest partner is model Vittoria Ceretti, 25, to whom he was first linked in 2023.

Vittoria has fronted advertising campaigns for fashion houses including Chanel, Prada and Dolce and Gabbana and was seen on holiday with Leonardo in Miami back in December.
