The ‘Inception’ star and the Israeli-born supermodel – who have been dating for over five years – ended their relationship last week after they both realised neither of them are ready to settle down.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: “It was amicable, they’re still friends and they are still talking. They just grew apart and went their separate ways.
“Neither are ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions.”
This is not the first time Leonardo and 25-year-old Bar have called time on their relationship, they split for six months in 2009 after dating for four years before reuniting last year.
Leonardo, 36, has previously admitted he is unsure if he will ever marry because seeing other people’s failed unions has put him off tying the knot.
He explained: “I don’t know whether I’ll ever get married. I’ve seen too many supposedly happy marriages go down. I’ve been as shocked as anyone.
“No one can look at the marriages of other people and make a judgement. I don’t know the private lives o the actors I work with. I just know if they are good actors or good directors.”

Leonardo DiCaprio Nabs Serial Killer Role For New Flick. Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play one of the first documented serial killers in the U.S. The “Inception” star has nabbed the screen rights to Erik Larson’s 2003 non-fiction book “The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair that Changed America,” which tells the story of serial killer Dr. HH Holmes. The actor will play the murderer who is believed to have murdered 27 to 200 people in Chicago in the late 19th century. Holmes, born Herman Webster Mudgett, constructed The World’s Fair Hotel for the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893. He used the inn to lure and murder his guests. He confessed to 27 murders and 6 attempted murders, though the number was believed to reach higher. He was hanged in 1896. DiCaprio acquired the screen rights through his Appian Way shingle with partner Jennifer Killoran and Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher from Double Features.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Alleged Face Slasher Claims Cover-Up Leonardo DiCaprio’s alleged face slasher claims the “Inception” star orchestrated a “cover-up” regarding the incident. Aretha Wilson’s lawyer wants the star’s toxicology report on the night of the incident five years ago. Wilson is accused of slashing DiCaprio’s face with a drinking glass at a party at Rick Solomon’s home five years ago. But her lawyer claims the whole case is a cover-up perpetrated by DiCaprio himself. Freddy Sayegh told our source that DiCaprio was actually the one who instigated the fight after Wilson hurled some insults towards his way. Apparently, Wilson called the actor and his entourage a “bunch of fags” and mocked them as they were leaving, telling them that they should “follow the little white man,” which set the actor off. He then came over and swung at Wilson, which forced her to defend herself with a broken glass from a bottle. The Golden Globe Award-winning actor went to the hospital that night and had 12 stitches to close the gash on his pretty face. Sayegh claims DiCaprio didn’t report the attack for three days. He ordered his lawyer Blair Berk to report the incident instead of going to the police. The lawyer for the accused also claims that five witnesses presented conflicting versions of the incident. He wants DiCaprio’s toxicology report and his medical records from that night. However, a spokeswoman from the L.A. Country District Attorney’s Office said there’s no toxicology report as victims in cases like this aren’t required to submit to such tests. Berk, the actor’s legal beagle, calls the cover-up theory “absurd.”

He says: “Do I want to be a father? Yes, but I think I have a few more years.” “That said, I don’t think I need to have children to play a father in the movies.”He adds, “This feeling is in me, I understand it completely.” DiCaprio will next be seen on the big screen opposite Ellen Page in “Inception.”

Unrecognizable Leonardo DiCaprio Asked To Move Theater Seats. Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t do a diva fit when people don’t recognize him. A roomful of theatergoers did not recognize the A-list star with his supermodel girlfriend, Bar Refaeli, and asked them to move out from their seats. The beautiful pair were at Century City in L.A. to watch a showing of “Iron Man 2” last Saturday. What DiCaprio did not realize was that people could reserve seats and he did not. They were apparently asked to move four times. A source told us, “During the previews, Leo and his group were asked to move three times. Then, as the trailer for his new movie, ‘Inception,’ began playing, they were asked to move again. They were gracious, [and] Leo was smiling at the irony of it.” The two ended up sitting in the front row, the worst seats in the house, but the two apparently didn’t mind.
Supermodel Bar Refaeli Urged By Israeli Extremist Group (seeking publicity)To Dump Leonardo DiCaprio. Supermodel Bar Refaeli should not marry boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio, an Israeli nationalist group has said. The 24-year-old catwalk beauty has already denied rumors she is engaged to the “Titanic” star, but the activists in her native land still urges her to reconsider her relationship with him. A leader of the Extremist Group sent her a beseeching letter on behalf of the Extremist organization. In the letter, they are asking Refaeli to ditch DiCaprio and reconsider marrying a Jewish boy instead. It reads: “It is not by chance that you were born Jewish. Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family’s future generations from the Jewish people. Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people.” Though he stressed that he has “nothing against Mr. DiCaprio, who I have no doubt is a talented actor,” he is still not the husband-material for a Jewish girl like Refaeili. The Extremist Group said it’s not what the Hollywood superstar is, but what he isn’t. He concluded, “Come to your senses, look forward and back too – and not only the present. Don’t marry Leonardo DiCaprio, don’t harm the future generations.” What do you think about that?

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated nearly a decade working together as they presented the director’s latest film, “Shutter Island,” at the Berlin film festival Saturday. Based on a novel by “Mystic River” author Dennis Lehane, the 1950s psychological thriller is the fourth film pairing Scorsese with DiCaprio, after “Gangs of New York” (2002), “The Aviator” (2004) and the Oscar-winning “The Departed” (2006). “Each experience has been unique. It’s been a progression, now it’s been 10 years,” DiCaprio, 35, said at a news conference with the director as their new film premiered out of competition in Berlin. The two heaped praise on one another, with DiCaprio saying “the biggest gift that he’s given me is an appreciation for cinema and cinema’s history, and an entirely new perspective on my view of this art form.” “I grew up on his work, really,” he said. “As a younger actor, you’d be a fool not to jump at the opportunity to work with somebody who I consider and many consider the definitive director of our time.” The 67-year-old director, for his part, said working with DiCaprio has lead to a special relationship. “Trust is really the key” and was built up over time, Scorsese said, adding that they “really reached a kind of comradeship in ‘The Departed.’” “I see him as a young man developing as a wonderful actor,” he said. “I’m very happy to be around when this is happening with somebody with such extraordinary talent, to be able to focus that and perfect it.” “Shutter Island” also stars Ben Kingsley, Patricia Clarkson, Mark Ruffalo and Michelle Williams. It is set in 1954, a time of Cold War paranoia, when Scorsese himself was growing up. It follows the investigation into the disappearance of a murderess from a mental institution on an island. DiCaprio plays a U.S. Marshal in Boston looking for the woman, and his involvement in the case starts to make him question his own sanity “This was a complex jigsaw puzzle of emotional back stories and dream sequences and truth and fiction,” DiCaprio said. “It was challenging and fulfilling.” Scorsese said he was attracted to the material in part “because it’s set in the 50s and because of the tone of fear and paranoia and secrecy and trauma.” “I grew up during the 50s, I grew up during the Cold War, I grew up expecting air raids every day,” he said. “That’s what we were told.” Scorsese and DiCaprio may not be done collaborating yet. “We’re always talking about different projects,” DiCaprio said. “If I’m lucky enough to work with him, I would consider it a gift.”
