It was rumored this month that 48-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio was potentially romancing 23-year-old model Victoria Lamas. Victoria is the daughter of actor Lorenzo Lamas, and he has seemingly confirmed their date night in some comments to the Recent York Post on December 28.
“She’s very smitten,” he said. “I told her to treat the connection like a vacation—just enjoy it as much as you possibly can for so long as it lasts. And if it lasts for greater than a typical holiday, great. But when not, then just guard your heart, you already know? Because she’s very young.”
He did pull back slightly, insisting that they’re only friends.
“They’re friends, they are not in a serious relationship,” he explained. “And I just want that to be clear….they are not dating.”
He continued, “They’re just friends, but she is smitten, in fact. And that was my cautionary tale to her: Just take one step at a time. But as of now, they are not an item. They are not exclusive to one another.”
Lorenzo mentioned the age gap between the 2, saying it doesn’t trouble him though he acknowledged Victoria’s youth.
“Age isn’t really an element for me as much as respect, trust and communication,” he said. “That is the important thing.”
The pair were seen in Los Angeles together on December 20, leaving The Birds Street Club and entering a automobile together. But a source E! News that they were with a gaggle, not one-on-one.
“They were seated (not next to one another) at a giant group dinner,” the insider claimed. “They were joined by a variety of other people within the automobile.”
Before Victoria got here on the scene, DiCaprio had been spotted with 27-year-old model Gigi Hadid. That was also a relationship that was supposedly not very serious, and Hadid appears to have been spending the vacations with family.
