DiCaprio denies being a virgin at 18

Leonardo DiCaprioLast October, Russell Crowe was quoted as saying that when he worked with Leonardo DiCaprio in 1995’s The Quick and The Dead, the then 18-year-old was a virgin. This week, he told Jay Leno that DiCaprio was at the time a virgin who’d never had an alcoholic beverage. However, DiCaprio told Access Hollywood: “He has no idea what he’s talking about,” and refused to elaborate. Meanwhile, Crowe sticks by his story, saying DiCaprio would talk about being a virgin constantly and that a few years after they worked together, he ran into DiCaprio at a film premiere. “He sort of hugged me and whispered in my ear, ‘I’m not a virgin anymore,’” Crowe says with a laugh. The two star together again in Body of Lies, opening next week. Who do you think is telling the truth?

    I’m not even going to vote for who’s telling the truth. The details of DiCaprio’s virginity are none of Crowe’s or anyone else’s business. Why would Crowe even be preoccupied with the activities of DiCaprio’s private anatomy? More than that, what would ever possess him to make such intimate information public. If DiCaprio ever confided in Crowe, I’m quite sure he didn’t expect him to broadcast it from one corner of the earth to the other. What tiny mind would think to focus on divulging that information anyway? His motive for doing that must really be questioned.

    Crowe talks about other’s life, what about his affair with Meg Ryan, she lost her husband and he then dump her, he ought to worry about his reputation in the public, not others and Minerva is right it is no one’s business but Leonardo’s.

    Good for Leonardo! There’s noththing wrong with that. Admit it and turn the truth into a possitive for the youth today. If alot more (very)young people would wait there would be fewer children from single parent homes.

    Ladies what the conversation really is ,,that Leonardo stated that he is a virgin when it came to drinking alcohol.
    He was 18 at the time.

    I think Russell is just trying to fit into the group with DiCaprio, Clooney, Pitt and Wahlberg…because they always put things out to the media about each other like this, comical insults and such. He’s a wannabe, that’s all! And as stated above, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a virgin at 18 or at 21, as I was. Nothing wrong with saying “No”…especially for females because alot (not all), but alot, of guys are only out for one thing and the female is the one who ends up with the kids most times!!

    Jay Leno probably asked a question regarding somehting to do with how well they know each other, and Russell Crowe tried his hand at comedy with a joke at Leo’s expense. Nancy said it, and it seems he’s trying to be a part of Hollywood’s new Rat Pack.
    Looks like there’s no more room for him…

    And don’t even get me started on that whole it’s-ok-for-a-guy- thing……

    You don’t get it by now, Monique? Obviously you do or you wouldn’t be on this site all the time. Not saying I am any different here…just saying perhaps we have no lives LOL

    maybe more people should strive to maintain their virginity till at least 18

    I have always liked Russell Crowe, also think him a fabulous actor. I really believe this was a harmless inside joke of some kind between the two actors, and hardly think it is a serious situation in DiCaprio’s eyes.

    People who like Russell Crowe must like violence (or have some hidden anger issues). I’ve never heard negative publicity on DiCaprio – like throwing desk telephones at people who work below him, or having a hissy fits because they didn’t win an Oscar.
    DiCaprio is a talented kid, and Crowe is looking like a washed up actor to me…we’ll see when the movie comes out. I’ll bet DiCaprio will steal the show!

    Who really cares when Dicaprio lost his virginity or when he started drinking? I don’t think that DiCaprio needs to say anything.

  12. tributegirl • October 3, 2008 @ 11:33 PM

    Yeah, I agree, it’s nobody’s business but his own, and it probably was just an inside joke between the two of them.

    If DiCaprio was a virgin or didn’t drink at the age of 18, then good for him. There’s no shame in this. If this is true, he’s just showing others that he is indeed a good and responsible person.Good for Leo. Having info such us this I’m sure wouldn’t have a changing effect negatively on the ladies who love and adore him. As a matter of fact, it would make us ladies love him even more!!!!

    Now whether or not the story is true, this shouldn’t be anybody’s business only his owns. Leo has been known and still to this day an extremely intellegent and talented young actor who truly have a good head on his shoulder so to speak. He obviously knows how to hold his own in the publics eye and stay true to himself. We will always love and respect Leo no matter who will always try to find ways to deminish his character.

    So regardless of if other actors make comments true or not, we will always love Leo. Always stay true to yourself Leo if you ever read this. We all respect you just the way you are!!!

    Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, The Insider, Cinderella Man….others would wish to be so “washed up” AN

    and for the record, I think DiCaprio is a wonderful actor, and will continue to do great things on the screen

    hidden anger issues? I’ll let you answer to that one re yourself

    I think that Leonardo is a very good looking guy. I would be shocked if he was a virgin at 18. I know if i was a girl…

  16. Abby • October 16, 2008 @ 5:55 PM

    Which sex are they actually referring to – men or women? Leonardo was absolutely a pretty and sexy boy.
