By Elizabeth Russo

Leo DiCaprio has a lengthy yet niche resume when it comes to the ladies. The actor is famously known for dating Hollywood bombshells under 25 - from Bar Refaeli to Cami Morrone. Here's a look back at his famous flings...

Bridget Hall

During his many years on the market, the Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood charmer has gained quite the rep. It seems he's won over the most sought-after women in the biz - starting with Victoria's Secret models.

The first model that the actor reportedly linked up with back in 1994 was Victoria's Secret and Vogue cover model Bridget Hall - who was 17 at the time. However, the young and budding celeb was only three years older than Hall, and the relationship didn't last too long.

Naomi Campbell

Before he became a huge movie star, Leo allegedly had a fling with '90s supermodel Naomi Campbell. Although the 1995 romance was never confirmed or denied by either party, the kicker is she actually had a few years on him! That trend died very quickly, though…

Fast forward a few years, and the two actually have been spotted together - but just as friends! The paps have caught the two alleged exes with some mutual friends hanging out on vacations and attending each other's events. So safe to say, just friends.

Demi Moore

Well, the trend didn't die too quickly! Following DiCaprio's fling with the international supermodel, he allegedly cozied up with Demi Moore in 1997 right as the Ghost actress and her ex-husband Bruce Willis were mid-separation. So obviously, the rumor mill started spinning.

However, the allegations were never confirmed or denied by either party, but the "older women" trend still stood strong from his last fling. Moore is 12 years older than DiCaprio and actually soon became known for dating men noticeably younger than her, like ex-husband Ashton Kutcher.

Kristen Zang

Right as Romeo + Juliet premiered in 1996, Leo started dating model and actress Kristen Zang, following his models-only resume, who was one year older than DiCaprio. The duo dated for 15 months between 1996 and 1998, when the two were in their mid-twenties.

This was The Wolf of Wall Street's first lengthy public relationship before Kristen reportedly called it quit in 1998. According to The New York Daily News, a friend of the model claimed she was the "love of his life," and the reason they broke up was because Zang found him immature.

Helena Christensen

Leo and Christensen dated back in 1997, once again supporting the theory that the actor exclusively dates stunning supermodels. The famous pair were spotted together on several occasions at some of LA's top parties - around the same time Titanic was released.

However, neither party ever confirmed their fling with one another. Instead, the short fling further confirmed DiCaprio's pattern of dating Hollywood's biggest bombshells. And while she was 6 years older than him, he wouldn't continue dating cougars much longer…

Eva Herzigova

Another year, another supermodel. The year was 1998, and the young Leonardo DiCaprio had just released one of his most famous films to date, Titanic. And well, he was living large! So why not date the original Wonderbra bombshell, Eva Herzigova, to support his new stardom?

The two reportedly had a two-month fling after meeting at the premiere of The Man In The Iron Mask, but the Czech model denied all allegations. Why would anyone hide a fling with one of the biggest breakout stars? Well, rumor has it, Eva - who was 1 year older than Leo - was divorcing her husband at the time…

Gisele Bündchen

So sometime following his fling with Herzigova, by 1999, the Titanic star decided it was time to settle down. And who better to settle down with than Brazilian goddess Gisele Bündchen? Ah, the pattern continues. Not only was Leo dating the world's top model, but she was 18 when they started dating.

Leo was about 24 at the time, and once "Gionardo" made headlines, they were seemingly everywhere. Not only was she the only girlfriend of his to have accompanied him to the Oscars, but they had no problem sharing PDA. Unfortunately, things wouldn't end well for the happy couple.

Making Their Mark

However, before the big breakup went down, the two were deemed one of the hottest couples in Hollywood during their 5+ year relationship. From their unmistakably good looks to thriving careers and contagious personalities, they were basically 2000s royalty. And everyone knew it.

In 2004, just a few months before the break-up, the couple traveled to the Amazon Rainforest to meet the Xingui Indians to promote awareness about environmental issues affecting the area. So, not only were they a power couple in Hollywood, but they were using their powers for the greater good.

The Painful Truth

But behind closed doors, things were not as easy for the couple. And in 2005, they called it quits. In 2018, Bündchen released an autobiography, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, where she shared she went through a dark period in her early 20s, which eventually led to her decision to split with her now ex.

"No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking, and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I'd chosen not to look at," she recalled. "Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes."

Bar Refaeli

Shortly after his relationship with Gisele came to a close, The Departed star began dating Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli. Let the pattern continue: Leo and the Sports Illustrated model allegedly met at a party in Las Vegas back in 2005 or early 2006 and dated on and off for over 5 years.

As one might have guessed, the young model was around 20 when she met her soon-to-be beau - and Leo was around 11 years older than her. The couple was first spotted together back in 2006 during a romantic getaway in Paris. But from there, they kept their relationship pretty low-key...

"No One Needs To Know"

In an interview for La'Isha, an Israeli magazine, Rafaeli provided a little more insight into the reality of dating one of the biggest men in Hollywood and keeping their romance private. "I am there for him, and I am at all the events," she said, but "I just don't walk in hand-in-hand with him. I don't see any reason."

The model continued, "I don't see any reason. I don't need to strike poses with him in front of the cameras. No one needs to know how we kiss." Safe to say, the couple often kept to themselves, making only a few public debuts during their mysterious fling. As for when they did step out together?

Not The Average Date Night

However, one of their most notable and very public appearances was during a trip to Israel back in 2007, when the two were at their absolute peak. The couple went from sitting court-side at Lakers games to having a rather formal meeting with Israel's former Prime Minister, Shimon Peres.

DiCaprio's reputation as an activist, in addition to Bar being from Israel, led the two to meet with the former Prime Minister to promote environmental conservation and peace in the region. According to an inside source, the couple arrived casual - Leo even apologized to Peres for "not dressing properly."

Asking the Important Questions

Following their trip to Israel, People reported their romance had "ran its course," although the two were spotted traveling the world together throughout 2008. The couple went on another break for half a year in 2009, when Bar explained she "needed" the time apart to "understand a lot of things about myself."

"I worked on myself [and] I grew up," she told La'Isha. "I didn't know what 'alone' was like. Today I know that a relationship can work only if you know you can be alone and you are not afraid." The couple finally called it quits in 2011 - when the model was around 25.
