Leonardo DiCaprio and his gorgeous Israeli supermodel girlfriend Bar Refaeli have apparently gotten too close for an Israeli organization called Lehava. In Hebrew Lehava means “flame” and is the Hebrew acronym for “Preventing Assimilation in the Holy Land.” Basically, it “assists” Jewish girls to get out of relationships with non-Jews. The organization wrote Refaeli a letter and sent it to her mother. It said, “It is not by chance that you were born Jewish. Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family’s future generations from the Jewish people. Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people.” Oy gevalt. They also added a “no offense” to Leo clause, as this “has nothing against Mr. DiCaprio, who I have no doubt is a talented actor.” I guess you can’t blame them for trying, but you can’t stop love, especially when it’s for Leo DiCaprio. Why don’t they tell her to convert the guy and start an ultra race of sexy Israeli ex-pats? And haven’t we seen what happens when people try to keep their race “pure”? Nothing good, that’s what.

This week Leonardo DiCaprio got “busted” laying down some serious coinage for a variety of skincare products, including eye creams, toner, face masks and anti-wrinkle potions, at the Blue Mercury boutique in Los Angeles. While his reps insisted that he bought them for a lady friend (Lindsay Lohan mayhaps?), what dude buys wrinkle creams for his girlfriend? And a fellow shopper claimed he was asking the salespeople an awful lot of questions about how the formulas worked. We’re not surprised–it’s not like guys are immune to the pressure to look young in Hollywood–and, like so many of us, Leo continues to grow older. Sigh. But, considering most dermatologists think the majority of cosmetic anti-wrinkle creams are total B.S., we think he could’ve saved himself and his fine lines a lot of money. I mean, has anyone here found a wrinkle cream that actually works? What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a mad beauty-product shopping spree? [Examiner] Keep reading »
Want to know everything there is to know about Leonardo DiCaprio
? Well then, you’ll want to watch this unauthorized documentary “Hangin’ With Leo!!” With totally sketchy footage and contradictory interviews with people who don’t seem to be experts on anything, this doc takes you deep inside the mind of Leo. Here’s what I learned about Leo … Keep reading »
Isn’t it strange watching celebrities in movies made before they got famous? Think of young Leonardo DiCaprio in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”—who could’ve predicted he’d one day freeze to death in the ocean and enchant pre-teens around the world? Though his role was respectable, few other now-leading men have been as fortunate. Most of their entries into movies are probably as cringe-worthy for them as middle school yearbook photos are for us. But while the evidence of our journey toward adulthood is hidden in basements and attics, thanks to the wonders of the Internet (namely, IMDB), these celebrities’ rise to stardom is ours for the knowing—and ridiculing.

Even that creepy weirdo can’t keep his eyes of our sweet Romeo, Leonardo DiCaprio. While we’re sad Leo’s running from danger, this shot proves Leo is so hot, he obvi could have been on “Baywatch.” [Ibiza, 8/4/09] Keep reading »
“Twilight” director Catherine Hardwick has a new angst-ridden project in the works: a remake of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Emile Hirsch is the tasty choice picked to play the passionate Prince. We can’t wait to see him strut and fret in ye old tight pants. While we’d happily watch the grass grow if irresistible Emile were lying in it, it’s a total bonus that this just happens to be one of our favorite sub genres—a twisted teen take on a Shakesperean classic. Since there’s nothing like a hunk who wants to school us in the ways of love, here are other modern blockbusters that have helped us avoid actually reading Shakespeare.

Holy hotness—Johnny Depp is on the cover of Vanity Fair that’s coming out tomorrow. And this dude really can’t get enough of the Caribbean. After filming three movies there, in 2004, he decided to buy his own private island in the Bahamas. Depp and his family bask in the sun on Little Hall’s Pond Cay Island, which has six beaches. Three are named after members of Johnny’s family, another is called “Brando,” and yet another is “Gonzo” after his idol and friend, Hunter S. Thompson. Johnny likes to keep things in the family. His 156-foot yacht is dubbed Vajoliroja—a word made-up of syllables of his family’s names.
Interestingly, many celebs own private islands. I guess they need somewhere paparazzi-free to escape from all the parties, premieres, and their own fabulousness? Here are a few celebs that sunbathe in solitude.

Spring must have sprung. Everybody’s getting naked! Especially when it comes to the covers of magazines. Yesterday, it was Miranda Kerr stripping down and chaining herself to a tree to save the koalas on the cover of Rolling Stone. Today, it’s Bar Refaeli taking it all off for the July issue of Esquire, her body painted with the contents of the magazine. The 23-year-old Israeli model is the girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio and the host of MTV’s most recent reincarnation of “House of Style.” I think the cover’s pretty awesome; it reminds me of “The Pillow Book,” in which bodies get turned into books. But what about you: Have you ever posed naked? [HuffPo] Keep reading »
