I remember him being outed in a blind item in the San Francisco Bay Area Reporter circa 1994 or so.
He came out during Basketball Diaries press. His reps asked that it not be printed. Allegedly...
In a few months, Leo gets a role in what becomes the highest grossing movie of all time. Now, it's no time to come out at all.
His fug bf is the kid from "Witness' and he's fucked and sucked that rican magician with the huge penis.
We'll never see the end of them.
I have been searching and searching and cannot find it anywhere, but I distinctly remember Craig Chester giving an interview in which he specifically talked about Leo wanting to come out and his management saying no. This was after the Oscar nom for Gilbert Grape but before Titanic.
I've always thought the assembly line model "girlfriends" were phony and not believeable. In most of the photos with his "girlfriends", he always looks bored and uninterested.
If he is gay, I wish he'd at least stop with the stupid bearding.
He'll stop, right after he marries a beautiful woman.
That was the BI in the BAR. Said the exact same thing. Used mushroom cap as one of the clues along with some others.
BI were so much more fun with clues back then. And much better written.
Perhaps the stupidest rumor ever to gain widespread traction on DL is that Leo, who could have any guy on the planet, would choose stick-thin, fugly, probable-heroin-addict Lukas Haas as his longtime lover.
r7, exactly! or at least pick a normal gal
Lukas Haas is adorable.
I think that's Leo's taste in men, he needs to find them just adorable. I'm also thinking of young Tobey and some super-short bf with cute red locks he allegedly once had. No gym studs for Leo.
Also, Lukas is indeed allegedly an ex-Heroin addict. What the hell does that have to do with anything?
[quote]Lukas Haas is adorable.
On what planet?
I find Lukas attractive. The fact that he's lived with Leo for many years says something.
Different strokes for different folks, I guess but I haven't found Lukas adorable since Rambling Rose. You can see him on the show Touch now. He looks like a strung out creeper. Still talented, though.
I wonder if Lukas booked the role because he and Leo finally had the discussion that Lukas needs to pull his weight. The only things I've seen him in in recent years were associated with Leo (Inception and Red Riding Hood--which was co-produced by Leo).
Lainey Gossip used to be on board that Leo was gay and the models were all beards (and getting tons of publicity for themselves in the process) but this was before she started shilling on behalf of celeb publicists.
R13. On the planet where I live, Lukas Haas is adorable--adorkable, maybe--but utterly superior to Leo regardless of the primary adjective used.
WHERE'S THE PIC OF HIM AND HIS GANG OF FAGS NAKED AND SITTING AROUND A TABLE????
Even in Titanic, Leo seemed more like Kate's BFF than he could ever be her lover. During the iconic sex scene in the car, she rest on her heaving titties like he's a newborn coming in for the feed.
R21 Even if I were straight, Kate Winslett's "heaving titties" would get exactly zero reaction from me.
r22, that is because you are a fag!!!
Go back to the part where I said "Even if I were straight," R23. Now try for a little reading comprehension this time.
Yeah because you find breasts repugnant. You are a fag
F&F for R23/R25
Me either R22.
Yea R26. Both hypocrital lesbian bitches.
waiting 4 naked pics of leo and gang.
R21, I agree. In Titanic, Leonardo's Jack Dawson had more romantic longing and chemistry in the one minute of screen-time with his Italian "friend" Fabrizio than Kate Winslet's character at all.
Leo is as straight as Hugh Jackman.
R6, I remember that interview - though I don't remember it being Craig Chester. It may have been; I honestly don't remember other than it was an actor-screenwriter, so Chester fits. But it was in an early issue of Instinct magazine in the mid to late 90s. I just remember being surprised he openly outed DiCaprio.
Leo now looks like Square bob sponge pants
r6 and r32 It was an interview in Genre magazine.
I remember some flash animation series about two burgulars who review movies made fun of him in one of their clips when he's hosting a pool party with guests who look like girls from the back, but are guys when they turned around.
I recall everyone was trying to out him, then he got old and fat and now no one cares
R34, you are absolutely correct. I got my gay magazines mixed up.
Well he's pushing 40 and is still unmarried with no kids.
[quote]Well he's pushing 40 and is still unmarried with no kids.
Even though I do think he's gay, being unmarried and not having kids is a stupid reason to come to that conclusion. Not everyone wants kids or to be married.
Leo is now with Bradley Cooper.
During one weekend in January, this multiple Oscar nominee and this one-time Oscar nominee spent some time together. They watched some sports game together, had a few meals together, and participated in a few leisure-time activities together. All very innocent, right? Maybe not. Multiple has a jealous male friend. He is an actor who broke into the business more than 20 years ago as a minor. Now, we’re not saying that anyone here is gay… but Multiple has had a revolving door of girlfriends, One-Time has been in few suspiciously beardy relationships, and Male Friend spends an awful lot of time in gay bars in Weho! The Male Friend wasn’t at Multiple’s that weekend, but he quickly found out that Multiple was spending the weekend with another man. When he found out that it was One-Time, he went nuts! He sent One-Time a flurry of threatening texts and voice mails telling him that Multiple "is my man" and that he had better stay away from or that he would tell the press that One-Time is gay! Uh oh! But it was an idle threat, and One-Time knew it. He knew that Male Friend wasn’t about to sink three successful careers with one call. But – just to make sure – he and Multiple did a photo op together that portrays them as a couple of regular, macho guys who were doing nothing more than hanging out, watching sports, drinking beer, and talking about girls.
You mean he possibly fucks Bradly Cooper sometimes, as everybody already speculated before that BI came out.
Searching for a Chester interview quote, I found just a mention and a bit of gossip from 1997. Oldest news.
[quote]was outed by an actor by the name of Craig Chester in an issue of the gay
magazine Genre two years ago.
[quote]is continually said to be a real, big queeny girl when he's at parties and
other events, and is continually rumored as having been seen in New York and in
Los Angeles either with teenage boys or trying to pick them up.
[quote]there was a report about the choreographer from Romeo+Juliet saying at the
Australian premiere of the movie that Leo was "absolutely gay" and that he
loves dark-haired men.
s continually said to be a real, big queeny girl when he's at parties and other events, and is continually rumored as having been seen in New York and in Los Angeles either with teenage boys or trying to pick them up."
EWW a big ole fl amer!!
He's a real red-blooded heterosexual man! After all, "The Sun" says so, which means it must be true!
Lukas and Leo are as close as brothers - maybe the played around at some point but Leo is super close to Lukas and his brother. Leo is like a third brother to Lukas and his family. Also, Lukas and Leo are both gay. It's a good thing they both have the support of Lukas's family, who are charming, funny, old and a lot of fun. They are extremely cultured and well-educated. Lukas's mom used to be an opera singer. Lukas and Leo have benefited from them and they are well-grounded because of them.
R48 What kind of guys does Leo like?
As if a relatively young gay man with all his wealth would let himself go like that..
Every cell phone has a camera now. It is only a mater of time before every closeted actor in Hollywood is outed.
There's been some speculation that Leonardo and Scorsese were making amore.
(s)he's a dyke!
I sort of suspected that there was something going on between Dicaprio and Scorsese. The movies they make together aren't particularly great yet they still continue to work together.
Poor De Niro. Scorsese left him for younger, prettier DiCaprio. It's like Aniston and Jolie all over again.
A friend of mine lived a couple of houses down from Di Caprio for a summer, and she said there was a parade of built, black men going in and out of his house. She's convinced he's gay and likes black guys.
There's always someone like r56 making up shit in an effort to gross us out.
OH. For FUCK's SAKE. The entire world knew he was 100% gay some years ago but then some giant PR hype tried to change it, with some success, apparently.
Has a memory
[quote]in an effort to gross us out.
You mean: "in an attempt to collectively get us hard"
If built, black men automatically gross you out, you have bigger issues than worrying about Leo's sexual orientation, racist R57. DL probably isnt the site for you; try Stormfront.
More likely a fangurl grossed out by the gay part, R60.
What was all that buzz about Di Caprio messing around with underage boys in Thailand when he was shooting "The Beach"?.
[quote]some super-short bf with cute red locks he allegedly once had
Do you have a pic?
Here's a video of Leo approaching Zac efron (who he hang out before) at the Knicks game... he was very happy to see him and then when he notcie that zac brought along Vanessa Hugens he quickly bolted out of there.
“And he was like, ‘Dude, what are you doing tomorrow? Come over tomorrow — let’s hang out.’
“That’s a little taste of how cool he is. He’s just very down to earth. He’s just an awesome dude. He’s been nice enough to hang out with me a few times.”
So someone got pounded, but who would be the top? Both strike me as bottoms... maybe they used a double-headed dildo?
R73 Didn't Zac say the same thing about Tammy C?
Hmm r74 I kinda agree. I have a feeling that it's not sexual, but that its more of a... Hey I know how you get down, lets hang in "our" type of secret downlow group, meet people etc.
As much as I want him to be, and as tasty as he looks, I don't think Zac Efron is gay. I think he was inadvertently outing Leo with his comments about hanging out together. Zac has openly talked about how much he admires Leo and would love to have a career like his, so meeting him and hanging out would have been a big deal to little Zac.
You can add Robert Pattinson to Leo's downlow clique.
I just want to make a general comment about beards. Hollywood PR agencies are so out of touch with the real world it's laughable and insulting.
They don't even bother to stage photo ops anymore. They put it out that someone is "dating" someone, and we never see them together.
It's 2013. We now have cameras on telephones. There's Twitter, and Facebook and Instagram. It's not like it's hard to figure out what's bullshit and what isn't. How the fuck are two people supposed to be dating when they are never together?
The whole process today is really just setting the frame work for defamation lawsuits. That is all they need R85.
My best friend used to see him at The Rage(gay club W. Hollywood). This was when he had a small part on a family comedy starring Alan Thicke(?) early 90's.
I miss my friend,he died last Oct.
Is he a top or bottom? What kind of guys does he like?
I have seen a pic of Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire in robes at a Japanese tea place, and Maguire has his dick out. Di Caprio was just drinking his tea, paying no attention to Maguire, who looked wasted.
Inception is a crap
It was a god job, if it was photoshop
UGH still holding those photoshop pics up r92. LAME!
Leonardo Di Caprio is the straigthest that has ever straighted.
I agree R97, there is no proof that he is gay, I will stop coming here as I did before.
R98 But there was also no proof that Ricky Martin and NPH were gay until they finally admitted it, but we all knew they were.
Leo is into big burly bear types. One of his oldest lovers is that Mark guy whose name I can't remember. He was part of Michael Jackson's entourage, and was named and pictured in the Martin Bashir documentary. Leo met him at Neverland. Now this was in his youth, he may have graduated to a different type of man.
