Leonardo DiCaprio has found a new leading lady – Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively. After weeks of partying it up and down the French Riviera, DiCaprio and Lively have been photographed holding hands on a moonlit stroll after dinner in Monte Carlo.
“He looked very in love,” one witness commented in the new issue of Us Weekly (which has the exclusive photographs from the stroll!)
It’s been weeks of dinners, helicopter, yacht rides, and fancy parties for the A-lister courtship of Lively who is 13 years his junior (Lively- 23 / DiCaprio- 36). DiCaprio hasn’t wasted anytime getting back on the dating scene, the star broke with model Bar Rafaeli just a few weeks ago. Lively has been the first girl he’s been spotted with romantically since, but this isn’t the first time they’ve met. DiCarpio and Lively first connected at an NYC business meeting back in November – and shared a kiss at a Hollywood party this past January. Hm… perhaps the sparks have been flying for awhile?
Her face lit up when Leo was talking,” a fellow reveler says.
“He had introduced Blake as his girlfriend,” adds a source. “I would say they’re totally smitten!”
They certainly make one attractive couple! And while Blake isn’t a model – she’s close enough to fit Leo’s type we think! Best of luck to the new couple – and if you want to see the exclusive photos – be sure to pick up the new issue of Us Weekly out today!
