Leonardo DiCaprio might be Down Under, but things are looking up for the 36-year-old actor.
DiCaprio, who recently split from Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively, has reportedly taken quite the shine to the local women while filming Baz Luhrman's The Great Gatsby in Sydney, Australia. The press there has linked him to not one, but two Aussie models.
Earlier this month, Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper reported that DiCaprio had rebounded quickly from his breakup with Lively and was dating 21-year-old Alyce Crawford (pictured above left), a former contestant on Australia's Next Top Model. DiCaprio's rep, however, told People those reports were untrue.
But The Daily Telegraph was just getting started. On Oct. 9, the paper claimed that Leo was "romancing a number of Australian beauties in Sydney." By a number, the paper meant two, adding 20-year-old model Kendal Schuler (pictured above right) to the mix.
A friend of Schuler's told The Telegraph that Leo and Kendal first met in Los Angeles, but reconnected when they ran into each other at the Sydney nightclub Beach Haus. When the Australian celebrity magazine Who asked Schuler's rep to verify the hookup, however, he had "absolutely no comment." Boring!
Sure, it sounds like Leo is living it up with the ladies in Sydney, but a source tells People that the truth is far less steamy. "Leo is shooting Gatsby and that's about it," insists the insider. "The gossips are on overdrive. They have linked him to half of Australia at this point."
Lively, meanwhile, has been linked to her Green Lantern costar Ryan Reynolds, post-DiCaprio. They have been spotted out together in New York and Boston, and were reportedly caught making out while waiting for a train at Beantown's South Station. Sorry, Leo, but it sounds like Blake is winning the battle of the exes.
