Leo DiCaprio’s rumored romance with a 19-year-old model has everyone up in arms.
I’ll admit that the nearly 30-year age difference is creepy and cringe worthy.
Internet sleuths are doing what they do best and digging up dirt about DiCaprio.
“The O.C.” actress, Mischa Barton, once shared a cringey story about the Academy Award winner.
During a 2005 interview with
Harper’s & Queen
, Barton recalled how her publicist Craig Schneider encouraged her to sleep with DiCaprio to boost he career.
She was 19-years-old at the time the suggestion was made while DiCaprio was 34.
The infamous Lothario had just ended his relationship with Gisele Bündchen.
Mischa recalled seeing DiCaprio at a photo shoot in Malibu and that’s when Schnieder told her, “For the sake of your career, go and sleep with that man.”
A then-teenaged Barton replied, “Isn’t Leo, like, 30 or something?”
