Leonardo DiCaprio’s Best Actor Oscar for The Revenant may serve as a fitting tribute to a very well-regarded film career, but Jimmy Kimmel took the star’s time in the spotlight to offer up some thoughts on another aspect of DiCaprio’s life – his very public romances.
It’s well known to just about everyone that Leo has a thing for models. It’s been well-documented, but the late night host wanted to take things a step further by actually crunching some numbers on the movie star’s conquests. He offered up some rudimentary math on Leo’s love life to US Weekly in his post-Oscar broadcast, saying, “The man has had sex with a different Victoria’s Secret model every night of his life. Every year is his year! From 1991 on has been his year.”
That’s 9,000 women, give or take.
Now, aside from the fact that there haven’t been anywhere close to 9,000 Victoria’s Secret models, let’s assume that Leo wouldn’t have trouble finding companionship from other fashion lines. Wilt Chamberlain, in his book, A View From Above, stated that he had slept with 20,000 women in his life, so it’s perhaps in the realm of possibility that 9,000 is, at least mathematically, attainable.
However, Leo has been in a string of high-profile, (maybe) monogamous relationships with the likes of Bobbie Brown, Kate Moss, Bridget Hall, Brittany Daniel, Naomi Campbell, Kristen Zang, Helena Christensen, Natasha Henstridge, Demi Moore, Amber Valletta, Bijou Phillips, Eva Herzigova, Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli, Ashley Roberts, Blake Lively, Kendal Schuler, Erin Heatherton, Toni Garrn, and Rihanna.
While that’s no doubt an impressive list, there’s no time for even casual dating if he was to hit Jimmy Kimmel’s rate of one per night, which makes a total of 9,000 pretty unlikely. So Kimmel’s estimate, while certainly complimentary of the star, is probably high.
But I wouldn’t feel too bad for him. He DID get that Oscar, after all.
