Hollywood bachelors often leave us wondering, will they ever settle down? There are success stories, of course -- George Clooney marrying Amal comes to mind -- but in the case of Leonardo DiCaprio, fans have wondered if he'll be forever single since Kate Winslet, whom he's never dated, let go of his hand at the end of Titanic.
The 45-year-old Oscar winner has certainly had high-profile relationships, from Gisele Bundchen to Bar Refaeli, and has been romantically linked to models Nina Agdal, Kelly Rohrbach and Toni Garrn. He also briefly dated actress Blake Lively in 2011.
DiCaprio is currently in a relationship with Argentinian American actress Camila Morrone, and the pair celebrated her 23rd birthday together in June. The two have been dating for over two years, leading many fans to wonder if DiCaprio has met his match.
Here's some evidence to back why Morrone might be "the one" for the longtime bachelor.
The couple has been together since December 2017. This is the longest DiCaprio has dated someone in about a decade. One of his longest relationships was with Bundchen, whom he dated on and off from 1999 to 2005. He also dated Refaeli on and off for six years, from 2005 to 2011.
Morrone attended the 2020 Academy Awards as DiCaprio’s date. The actor hasn’t brought one of his girlfriends to the Oscars since Bundchen in 2005. While Morrone and DiCaprio didn’t pose together on the red carpet, they were seated next to one another alongside the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood cast inside the event. In fact, Brad Pitt had to step around Morrone to give DiCaprio a hug when he went up to accept his award.
The Couple That Quarantines Together...
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the pair has been spending lots of time together.
"He is usually very independent, spends lots of time with friends, but because of the lockdown, he has mostly spent time with Camila," a source told People magazine in June. “He loves being with her.”
“They are very close,” the source added, noting that DiCaprio seems “serious” about Morrone. "Leo has spent 24/7 with Camila for months at his house."
She Isn’t Afraid to Speak Her Mind About Their Romance
Though she didn’t flat-out name DiCaprio, Morrone did reference her romance with the A-lister during a December 2019 interview with reporters.
"There's so many relationships in Hollywood -- and in the history of the world -- where people have large age gaps," she said at the time. "I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date."
Morrone also noted that she wants to be judged on her acting abilities, and not for whom she is dating.
“I think more and more now that people are seeing the film [Mickey and the Bear], I’m slowly getting an identity outside of that,” she said. “Which is frustrating, because I feel like there should always be an identity besides who you’re dating... I understand the association, but I’m confident that will continue to slip away and be less of a conversation.”
They Have a History
In the early days of their romance, the couple was brushed off as simply being “family friends.” Morrone’s mother is Lucila Sola, an actress who has been romantically linked to actor Al Pacino, a close friend and co-star of DiCaprio’s for years.
They're Both Passionate About Acting and Used to Fame
Obviously, DiCaprio is all about his craft. Turns out, his ladylove is just as embedded in the acting world. At the 2019 premiere of her film Mickey and the Bear, ET spoke with Morrone about the critical acclaim she has received for her leading role.
"It's a matter doing good work and consistently doing good work, which I think is going to be the biggest challenge, because it is for every actor, to continue picking the right projects," she shared.
Morrone also opened up about how her upbringing prepared her fame.
"I was fortunate in the sense that I grew up in Hollywood, and I saw a lot of that and I was exposed to that at a very young age," she told ET. "I didn't feel overwhelmed when I got into this industry because my parents were actors. I grew up in Hollywood so I was very exposed to it, more so than if I can come from a different country or a small town."
They Have Shared Interests
Some of DiCaprio’s biggest passions include ocean conservation, battling climate change, and wild lands conservation. He regularly donates to causes that help protect the planet through his foundation, The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, and spends a lot of time out in nature. Morrone too seems to love the ocean. Back in April, she shared photos of herself snorkeling with a friend.
“Thumbs up for planet earth 🌍 I luv u,” she captioned a pic of herself in the water.
In another photo, she goes to give her pal an underwater high-five, writing, “My favorite place on 🌍 to be 👇🏼 under the sea.”
While we'll have to wait and see if DiCaprio puts a ring on it, he sure seems happy with the actress.
Demi Lovato is encouraging her fans to step up and take action! The 27-year-old singer has teamed up with Propeller to auction off a collection of items from her closet, including pieces she's worn on tour, along with some of her personal photography and other one-of-a-kind items.

This Hongkong Actor’s Wife Claims He Cheated On Her And Caused Their Daughter To Drop out Of School ’Cos He Squandered Away All Their Money
Hongkong actor Ricky Chan’s wife, Alison Lee, has accused the star of “despicable” acts, including cheating on her, having a bad work attitude as well as physically abusing their six-year-old daughter Prima Chan. The 37-year-old actor, who is of Indian descent, was born and raised in Hongkong. He's best known for his role in TVB drama Barrack O'Karma, where he played a police officer named Raj Sir opposite Selena Lee and Joel Chan.
Alison, who has been married to Ricky for six years, posted a long rant, which has since been deleted, on Facebook on July 5 detailing a long list of her husband’s misdemeanours. “I’ve been separated from the trash actor Ricky Chan for a long time. I haven’t seen him, nor do we keep in contact. There have been people who have recently asked me about the money that he owes them, but it has nothing to do with me. I suggest that his victims spare me and report him to the police instead,” she seethed.
As he has ignored her texts and calls, Alison felt that she had no choice but to air her grievances online and has publicly asked him to return to Hongkong so that they can sign divorce papers. It's not known which country Ricky is in now.
Alison shared that all the money that Ricky earned from showbiz as well as their savings, government grants and cash that they borrowed from friends have been squandered away by the actor, who would splurge on his mistress. She claimed that Ricky would tell their friends that Alison was the one who needed money, although this was not the case.
“How did you manage to rack up so much debt that the school forced our daughter to drop out?” she wrote. “[I can’t believe that] you’re willing to destroy your daughter’s life just for that woman in Guangzhou.”
Alison also alleged that Ricky has hit their daughter until she bled. “Wasn't it enough that you've never bought her toys because you [spent all your money] on that woman? (...) What you did to your daughter has made her hate you,” she wrote.
On top of that, she claimed that Ricky has a bad work attitude, and would often be late for shoots or not turn up at all. She said there was once Ricky worked with Joey Yung and he threw a tantrum because the shoot was taking longer than expected. He then asked the staff to speed up the process so that he could end his work day sooner. Alison added: “Even Joey didn’t say anything about [having to put in the extra hours]. You made such a fuss (…) and even forced them to shoot your scenes before Joey’s. Do you really think that you’re a superstar?”
If Hongkong singer Edmond Leung is still looking to lose weight, he can consider checking in with Wilber Pan. At the start of 2020, the Taiwanese-American singer made a resolution to shed the pounds and he has kept his word.
Wilber shared his weight loss secrets when he went on Taiwanese radio station Hit FM to promote his new album Mr. R&Beats. During the interview, the 1.74m-tall singer revealed that he weighed 91kg at his heaviest. But through exercise and a low-carb diet, he has managed to lose 8kg this year.
Instead of going on a crash diet, Wilber chose to shed the pounds in a healthy way. His diet comprises mainly of boiled food and he cut back on oil and salt. Having a balanced diet is key, he revealed.
Despite seeing very positive results, the singer, who turns 40 next month, says he still has 3 kilos to lose before he reaches his goal weight.
Although he’s not at his ideal weight yet, Wilber is open to going shirtless for photoshoots now. According to the star, he has toned up and even managed to build up his chest muscles during his weight loss journey. In fact, he might even consider lifting his 19-year ban on showing his legs in public too. Wait, what now?
Wilber said that he's been self-conscious about his “chunky” legs since the early noughties after his Spicy Teacher co-star Ady An commented that he doesn't look handsome in shorts.
Wilber, who said his legs look like “dongpo pork”, was so affected by her remark that he stopped wearing shorts altogether. Even when he played basketball, he would made sure his shorts covered his knees.
This is not the first time the singer’s attempts to lose weight has made the news. In April 2018, his weight loss was so drastic (he lost 20kg in two weeks!) fans were concerned about his well-being.
His mom may have won an Oscar for playing June Carter Cash, but Deacon Phillippe is getting ready to become his famous family's breakout musician! The 16-year-old son of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe announced his debut single, "Long Run," featuring Nina Nesbitt on Instagram on Monday.
Deacon noted that the song would be out on Friday, sharing the single cover art, which features a black-and-white photo of him looking pensive as he stares into the distance.
Of course, his proud parents shared their support in the comments section.
Witherspoon, 44, wrote, "It’s SOOOOO good !!" while Phillippe, 45, posted a fire emoji.
Deacon teased the news last week with another black-and-white image from the photo shoot, writing, "Just the beginning."
Last week, Witherspoon also shared a photo of her eldest son on a boat writing, "Love this kid a whole lot."
Deacon has previously helped his famous mom tackle topics like how to dap and how to use TikTok.
Halle Berry is apologizing after she recently revealed she was considering playing a transgender man in an upcoming film project. The Oscar winner took to Instagram on Monday to share a statement in which she addressed the backlash over her controversial remarks and promised to be a better ally.
"Over the weekend I had the opportunity to discuss my consideration of an upcoming role as a transgender man, and I’d like to apologize for those remarks," Berry shared in a statement.
"As a cisgender woman, I now understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories,” she added.
Berry joined Christin Brown for an Instagram Live interview over the weekend, and she revealed that she'd recently been approached to play a trans character, and was excited by the possibility.
"[The role is] a character where the woman is a trans character, so she’s a woman that transitioned into a man," Berry said at the time. "She’s a character in a project I love that I might be doing."
The comments drew fire from critics who objected to Berry playing the character instead of hiring a trans actor for the role.
"I am grateful for the guidance and critical conversation over the past few days and I will continue to listen, educate and learn from this mistake," Berry continued in her statement. "I vow to be an ally in using my voice to promote better representation on-screen, both in front of and behind the camera."
Apart from her consideration of the role, Berry was also called out for using the wrong gender pronouns for the character during her Instagram Live conversation, and faced backlash for her attitude towards wanting to "experience that world" and "understand that world" for a film role.
It's unclear at this point what film Berry was referring to in the interview.
We know, we know. Taiwanese singer-actress Annie Yi has been in the news a lot lately. And for not very good reasons.
Just last week, the 52-year-old star angered netizens when she made insensitive remarks about late Cantopop diva Anita Mui during an interview. Annie, who is now competing in Chinese reality talent show Sisters Who Make Waves, was also accused of throwing shade at a fellow contestant and getting blacklisted by the producers as a result.
Now, the former Mrs Harlem Yu has come under fire for yet another controversy... and it's a pretty gross one this time.
Recently, netizens discovered that Annie had listed an old and visibly worn-out pair of heels on a used goods marketplace app. The shoes, which were stained and dirty, had an asking price of 230 yuan (S$45).
Oddly enough, she managed to close the deal (with whom, we wonder) and has deleted the listing.
But as the saying goes, nothing on the Internet really gets deleted. Netizens had already taken a screenshot of Annie's listing and started to circulate it online. Understandably, many people were turned off by what the mother-of-two did, and bluntly told her that her "disgusting" shoes looked like “garbage”. Some even wondered how they even got sold.
In addition to her shoes, Annie also sold the clothes her husband Chinese actor Qin Hao had worn in his dramas. Despite the higher price point, the items were all snapped up too.
This is not the first time Annie has sold her preloved stuff online. She once said that selling used items is a way of “creating a sustainable economy” and went on to assure fans that the money she gets from selling stuff online goes to charity.
True enough, Annie recently received a certificate from the China Children and Teenagers Fund thanking her for her support. So we guess those disgusting old shoes did do some good after all?
Korean star Son Ye Jin will be making, not a crash landing, but a splash in Tinseltown if everything goes well.
Korean media platform Star News reported the Crash Landing On You actress is slated to make her Hollywood debut in upcoming futuristic film Cross.
The movie, which will be helmed by In Time director Andrew Niccol, tells the story of a country divided by a border. On one side lives the wealthy and on the other, the impoverished.
Ye Jin is said to play Vera, a single mother who lives near the border in the poor side after her husband dies while attempting to flee the country. The 38-year-old actress will be starring opposite Australian actor Sam Worthington (you might recognise him from Avatar and Clash of the Titans).
While the movie’s concept has been in development since 2009, plans were only put in motion after the director was inspired by the divide between North and South Korea during his trip to Seoul last year. Production is expected to begin in Korea in March 2021.
Ye Jin’s management, MS Team Entertainment, has said that the actress will very likely be starring in the movie.
“Son Ye Jin is in talks for the movie Cross, and the outlook is favourable. Unless there are any huge changes, she’ll be going through with it,” read the statement, adding that Ye Jin is expected to speck English throughout the movie.
Meanwhile, Parasite star Lee Sun Gyun (he's the father of the wealthy Park family) has been offered the role of Gideon, the intimidating and powerful leader of the border protection team.
The 45-year-old’s agency, HODU&U Entertainment, said: “Lee Sun Gyun has received a casting offer for Cross and is currently reviewing the offer. He has not yet come to a decision.”
He will also be making his Hollywood debut should he choose to take on the role though it sure isn't his first Hollywood experience given Parasite's success at this year's Oscars.
Chris Evans and Lily James are sparking romance rumors after they were snapped together over the weekend in London at Mark's Club, an A-list private members' club in Mayfair.
In the pictures published by reporters, 31-year-old James -- clad in a red midi dress, heels and a black trench coat -- walked ahead of 39-year-old Evans, who looked dapper in a black suit, as they exited the club. According to the British newspaper, the two headed back to Evans' hotel together in the same taxi at around 1 a.m., though she entered separately through a door in the back while he entered through the main entrance.
Reporters has reached out to both James' and Evans' reps for comment.
James was last linked to The Crown star Matt Smith. She and the 37-year-old actor were spotted together in March, though they were rumored to have ended their five-year relationship in December. As for Evans, he was last linked to actress Jenny Slate, whom he met while filming 2017's The Gifted. The two broke up in 2018.
Although Evans is usually private about his personal life, in 2017, he did open up to Esquire about why he tended to date actresses. Aside from Slate, Evans has been linked to Jessica Biel, Minka Kelly, Lily Collins and more.
"There's a certain shared life experience that is tough for someone else who's not in this industry to kind of wrap their head around," Evans explained. "Letting someone go to work with someone for three months and they won't see them. It really, it certainly puts the relationship to the test."
In 2019, Evans hinted to reporters that he was ready to be a father when talking about his beloved dog, Dodger.
"Dogs are just so good and so pure," he said. "A weird, little door unlocks inside of you, this new level of empathy … in a weird way, that type of empathy permeates so many aspects of your life… You know, I think it actually unlocks a little bit, as I imagine having children will, I really want kids too."
Tom Hanks is sharing even more details about what it was like surviving the coronavirus.
In a new interview, the 63-year-old actor opens up about having COVID-19 at the same time as his wife, Rita Wilson. The two were the first A-list celebrities to publicly announce their diagnoses back in March, while they were in Australia. They have since recovered and are back in Los Angeles.
"Our discomfort because of the virus was pretty much done in two weeks. We had very different reactions, and that was odd," Hanks explains to The Guardian. "My wife lost her sense of taste and smell, she had severe nausea, she had a much higher fever than I did. I just had crippling body aches, I was very fatigued all the time and I couldn't concentrate on anything for more than about 12 minutes. That last bit is kinda like my natural state anyway."
"When we were in the hospital, I said, 'I'm 63, I have type 2 diabetes, I had a stent in my heart – am I a red flag case?' But as long as our temperatures did not spike, and our lungs did not fill up with something that looked like pneumonia, they were not worried," he continues. "I'm not one who wakes up in the morning wondering if I'm going to see the end of the day or not. I’m pretty calm about that."
As coronavirus cases continue to spike in multiple states across the country, Hanks believes there's "really only three things" everyone should do: "Wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands."
"I know societally it's been politicised, but I don't get it, man," he says. "I don't understand how anyone can put their foot down and say, 'I don’t have to do my part.'"
As for Wilson, reporters recently spoke with her about what it's been like spending so much time at home amid the pandemic.
"In some ways it's been a very creative time, and in some it's been a very reflective time," she shared. "I read this really good Socrates quote the other day, which read, 'Beware of the barrenness of busy life,' and I think that we are absolutely able to reflect on that right now when we are in quarantine and thinking about what's important."
