Leonardo DiCaprio “has his eye on” Margot Robbie on the set of their movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood? That’s the claim coming from one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
According to Woman’s Day, the actor has “had a soft spot” for his co-star since the two played spouses in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street. A supposed insider tells the magazine, “No one can deny their incredible connection.” The seemingly phony source goes on to say that Robbie’s husband Tom Ackerley isn’t happy about the possibility of DiCaprio trying to steal his wife while shooting their new film. “He trusts Margot totally, but he doesn’t want anyone making moves on her,” adds the alleged tipster.
What the tabloid doesn’t mention is that Robbie has already brushed off rumors about her and DiCaprio having a romantic connection. The actress previously told Vogue Australia, “We’re friends. Those rumors were inevitable, but there’s no truth to them.” As for the real dynamic between the two, Robbie told People that DiCaprio is like “a wonderful big brother.” The actress added, “He took me under his wing and always looked out for me, which is really nice.”
There’s no reason to believe DiCaprio would try to pursue Robbie on the set of their new movie when the two have already worked together and have known each other for years. It also makes little sense that Ackerley would be worried about his wife co-starring with her friend for a second time. Regardless, a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop on the condition of anonymity that the outlet’s article is ridiculous.
The unreliable magazine also leaves out another key piece of information: DiCaprio has been dating model Camila Morrone for more than nine months. There have even been recent rumors that the actor is considering proposing to his girlfriend. Gossip Cop hasn’t been able to confirm whether or not that’s the case, but regardless, it’s clear that DiCaprio is in a committed relationship.
Meanwhile, Ackerley’s supposed jealousy over his wife’s leading men has been a running theme among the tabloids for quite some time. Back in March, Gossip Cop busted Woman’s Day for falsely claiming that Ackerley accused Robbie of having having secret affairs with her various co-stars. One month before that nonsense, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting Robbie was turning to Alexander Skarsgard amid alleged marital problems. Robbie had co-starred with the actor in the 2016 movie The Legend of Tarzan, so the magazine decided to arbitrarily set her up with him, much like it’s now doing with DiCaprio.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
