Leonardo DiCaprio’s modelizing ways are almost as notorious as his character Jay Gatsby’s shadier dealings, and at the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the 38-year-old actor was allegedly up to his usual tricks. Unfortunately for him, this time he didn’t bag the blonde he hoped for.
According to Page Six, DiCaprio “begged” Cara Delevingne for her phone number and even “lunged” at her at one point — pro tip, boys: refrain from lunging — but the 20-year-old wasn’t interested. Eventually she caved (although not to the requests to join him in his hotel suite), but still considers him “too forward and too old.”
Our suggestion? Leo should take a page from Gatsby’s book and back off for a while — like, say, five years.
