DiCaprio's first roles were in commercials, then he transitioned into recurring roles in soap operas and sitcoms in the '80s.

For many, he's the ultimate heart-throb.

With his floppy hair, beautiful eyes, and handsome smile, DiCaprio became one of the premier hunks of the '90s.

Alongside acting, there's another area in which DiCaprio excels.

He's well known for being a ladies man, and has had a string of beautiful and famous girlfriends - including Naomi Campbell and Blake Lively.

It's fair to say his love life is almost as famous as his career.

DiCaprio has never married, but his string of exes includes some of the universally accepted most beautiful women in the world.

But if you thought dating DiCaprio would be a dream come true?

Well, Gisele has come out with quite a different narrative.

She spoke out about her lifestyle change since dating Leo.


"No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking, and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I'd chosen not to look at."

"Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same?"


"In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes."

Hey, at least they've managed to find happiness elsewhere, right?
