Olympian Kerri Walsh Reveals Her Celebrity Crush

The volleyball champ says she has her eye on one of Hollywood's hottest actors. Who's her guy?

Kerri Walsh may be part of that elite group of athletes who've won a gold medal at the Olympics -- but when it comes to her crushes, she's just like every other woman of her generation. The athlete admits that her not-so-secret celebrity love is Leonardo DiCaprio.

"Hasn't changed," the beach volleyball champion told E! News without a moment's hesitation. "He's my guy!"

The California girl is about to compete in her fourth consecutive summer Olympic Games. Walsh and her partner Misty May-Treanor were no. 1 at the 2004 and 2008 Games and are hoping for one more gold medal.

In an interview with former Olympian Bruce Jenner, Walsh also revealed the Keeping up with the Kardashians is her favorite reality show: "Simple!" she explained.

As for her success at beach volleyball, Walsh, 33, attributes it to the fact that you can pick your own partner to compete with as a team.

"I could be the best and the world, you could be the best in the world, but without chemistry, it's not going to work out," Walsh said. "Misty and I have been together since 2001. We're staying together. She's my girl!"
