The Absurdity of One Of Leonardo DiCaprio's Silliest Quotes Illustrated with Pictures

By Dustin Rowles | Box Office Round-Ups | May 13, 2013 | Comments ()


The weekend's number one movie was Iron Man 3 once again, as it added $72 million to bring its 10 day total to a whopping $284 million. It's now the fourth fastest movie to $250 million, as well as the film with the fourth highest second weekend of all time. It's numbers are even more insane internationally, where Iron Man 3 has already made $664 million. It's poised to break $1 billion worldwide this week, and has a shot at approaching The Avengers' worldwide total of $1.5 billion.

Despite those obscene numbers, however, it did not overshadow the opening of The Great Gatsby, whose $51 million opening weekend makes it the third highest opening weekend ever not to be number one (behind only The Day After Tomorrow and Sherlock Holmes). In fact, by Tuesday, The Great Gatsby should surpass Moulin Rouge as Baz Luhrmann's highest grossing film of all time ($57 million). The opening is also Leonardo DiCaprio's second best, behind only Inception.

Speaking of DiCaprio, he's not a very quotable actor. In fact, he's a bit of a dull interview, which may be why he doesn't spend as much time promoting his movies as other actors (either that, or he just doesn't like to do it). I had wanted to compile a list, similar to that of our Robert Downey, Jr. post, on DiCaprio's best quotes. Unfortunately, that list wouldn't amount to more than three quotes, at best. However, I did find amusing a quote he made earlier in his career:

"I prefer ordinary girls -- you know, college students, waitresses, that sort of thing. Most of the girls I go out with are just good friends. Just because I go out to the cinema with a girl, it doesn't mean we are dating."

"Ordinary girls"? College students? Waitresses? That sort of thing?

Huh. Well, here's a list of DiCaprio's confirmed romantic relationships over the course of his career.

Kristen Zang (Model)


Claire Danes (Actress)


Amber Valetta (Model)


Gisele Bundchen (Super Model)


Bar Rafeali (Super Model)


Emma Miller (Model)


Blake Lively (Actress)


Erin Heatherton (Model)


Hmm. Weird. Not a lot of college girls and waitresses on that list.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Buck Forty

    I think if you check their CV's you'll find all of those women either went to college or worked as waitresses at some time in their lives.

  • Green_Eggs_and_Hamster

    So, earlier in his career he liked ordinary girls? Whats this, 20 years ago? And then he found out he could have sex with super models, and whoa...he likes them perhaps a little more? Back in College I liked Bud Light. Now I drink mostly Single Malt Scotch, and I haven't had a Bud Light since I don't know when. I guess I was a total hypocrite for saying 20 years ago that I liked Bud Light.

  • logan

    ya beat me to it. : )

  • e jerry powell

    Yeah. If that's ordinary, what the fuck is everyone else?

  • John W

    Celebrities dating models is par for the course like naming their kids Trapezoid, or featuring their kids' fetuses in their movies so they can get their SAG cards.

  • Pookie

    Where is all the outrage from you women’s lib broads? DiCaprio is so disrespectful when it comes to women.

  • Az

    My favorite one is Blake Lively who played the hell out of Leo to get to the guy she actually wanted. Beautifully done.

  • alwaysanswerb

    For real. Snaps up and down to her for playing the game like a BOSS

  • Bitch please!!! Dicaprio is the worst of the worst when it comes to modelizing. He only dates models or women who are beautiful enough to be a model.

  • carrie

    you're not a Victoria Secret model if you didn't have sex with Dicaprio

  • e jerry powell

    Heidi Klum? Tyra Banks? Ajuma Nasanyana?

  • prince_of_montagu

    Dammit, i'm still waiting for him to realize that he loved Kate Winslet all along and that they're meant to be together.

    Screw Brad and Angelina. THAT is one celebrity couple that I fully endorse.

  • e jerry powell

    Kate's been married, what, thrice now? The first two times to directors, no less. And now she's a Branson? I'm thinking that Kate and Leo were never meant to be anything but a play couple in the movies. Not that that's a bad thing...

  • Mrs. Julien

    I so enjoy it when your response is exactly what I had been thinking.

  • Mrs. Julien

    So he's a hypocrite? Is that the point? He's a hypocrite because as a normal healthy male he has become involved with the most attractive partner he can successfully pursue and in his situation that means incredibly beautiful, sexy women? Isn't that what is known as "living the dream"?

  • kucheza

    Only if "living the dream" has nothing to do with what a partner is like aside from looks (which is not to say that a good looking woman can't be a great person, merely that character/intelligence/humor/sass/general compatibility is mentioned nowhere in the phrase "incredibly beautiful/sexy".) Which is fine, because I never fail to be amused at the resulting (desperate, confused) unhappiness that results from living *that* particular (junior high) dream. Do continue feeding my schadenfreude, gentlemen.

  • BlackRabbit

    You think about it, a celebrity would actually be better, since they're already used to the high-pressure weirdness of Hollywood and such. Someone who's already rich and famous might be less likely to be a fame whore or golddigger.

  • Mrs. Julien

    The more you think about it, the more sensible his choices get.

  • Puddin

    This is also the same asshole who said he wanted to quit acting so he can fly around the world on a jet saving the environment. Let's break this down people. He wants to save the environment. By FLYING around the WORLD. On a JET.

    He's a turd.

  • e jerry powell

    So very Howard Hughes, no?

  • zeke_the_pig

    A spectre is haunting the souls of supermodels. A spectre called Leo. He roams the Earth; an insatiable appetite driving him ever onward on an unending, torturous quest, for he must consume the souls of every supermodel, actress, and Other Vaguely-Lookalike Pretty Lady or else he will surely perish! But little does he know that this voracious Sisyphus must pay the price for each soul consumed, for - as shitty, overwrought movies have taught us - a soul has a clearly defined weight, and each 21 gram addition balloons his head further and further until, finally, the weight will be far far too much and he will transform into his final, terrible form: Mr Potato Head!
    And lo, Mr Potato Head will search far and wide for his Mrs, but alas he will find that he has consumed them all! And Mr Potato Head will sit and he will weep and he will,...well, still probably not have an Oscar.

  • rio

    I'm sorry what???? CONFIRMED Claire Danes?? When did that happen? I'm pretty sure i'd remember since my 15 years old self would have died at the idea, DIED I tell you. Seriously, im pretty sure that never happened. Also he's such a douche, i love it.

  • e jerry powell

    During Luhrmann's R+J.

  • rio

    yeah, I get the timing, but really Im pretty sure it didnt happen, my 16 self would have find out if it did, they were my real life OTP and a obsessed teenager would never missed the opportunity to be morbidly right.

  • e jerry powell

    It was everywhere I read during the press junket. It seemed like I couldn't get away from the nationwide 'shipping at the time.

  • John G.

    This totally checks out, guys. Leo hasn't eaten in an actual restaurant in decades, so his handlers just told him that the catwalks where he usually hangs out are diners and all the ladies that fawn over him when he gets there are "waitresses"

  • Lindsey Gregory

    Last pic = how Leo eats cooter?

    Cause gross.

  • BWeaves

    In Florida, cooters are turtles. We call them common cooters and they are black with neon green racing stripes up the sides of their necks. They're about 1 foot across. They're kinda cute.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I saw a "redneck" cookbook once that had a recipe for "Cooter Pie" saying, "First you get a cooter and whack its head off". There was also a recipe for a snack that was a handful of salted peanuts in a glass of Pepsi.

    **shooting star**

  • BWeaves

    Considering that turtle was quite a delicacy until they were almost made extinct, hence the recipes for mock turtle soup, I can't really say there's anything wrong with the "Cooter Pie" recipe, except for lack of class in the directions.

  • Puddin

    I applaud your inquiry and your use of the word cooter. Ten points for Griffyndor.

  • lowercase_ryan

    everyone upvote this.

  • So he's banging just about every college girl and waitress that he runs into while also banging models and actors. Somehow I'm not surprised.

  • Mrs. Julien

    And maybe a little jealous?

  • Oh, definitely. And a lot jealous. Though I'm not wild about the really skinny model type. I'd opt for the Kate Upton type model over the Giselle type.

  • Heche

    Oh, so you like to think that you like the healthy look, do you? Even though the only difference between Kate Upton and Gisele Bundchen is that sweet lil' Katie got a boob job?

  • If Kate Upton got a boob job the doctor is a genius. But yeah, you're probably right about there not being much of a difference.

  • Caspar

    I think the key word in that statement, sadly, is probably 'thing'.

  • BWeaves

    At his age, college girls and waitresses would be creepier than super models.
