Hard as it may be to believe, there was a time when Leo could commit himself to a woman for a substantial amount of time. As recently as the beginning of this decade, he was in the midst of a five-year relationship with model Bar Refaeli. But since the two split up in 2011, the “Revenant” actor, now 41, has cycled through a number of women in their early 20s, all of whom bear a striking resemblance to the Israeli beauty — tall, blond and with model good looks.
But it doesn’t seem as if Leo has been able to form a lasting bond from any of these four relationships, which have lasted just over an average of 10 months each. Refaeli, on the other hand, has had no such problem, having married businessman Adi Ezra last September. She’s even expecting her first child.
Which brings us to the big question — what’s next for Leo? Is he ready to pull a George Clooney and actually buckle down and find love, or is he just going to continue looking for this year’s model of Bar?

Is it a coincidence that Leo’s shortest post-Refaeli relationship was with the only non-model he dated? Lively, now married and with a child of her own, was the first blond beauty the actor attempted to move on with. Though they had acting in common, things just weren’t meant to be.

Leo’s return to bachelordom was a short one. Two months after he split with former “Gossip Girl” star Lively, he was back to dating a model. Then-Victoria’s Secret Angel Heatherton was clearly more than a fling, but she wasn’t able to hold his attention for more than a year. She did set the table for the actor’s next two lady friends, though.

The youngest woman to catch Leo’s eye was also the one who came closest to sticking. The German Victoria’s Secret model, but not an Angel, lasted more than a year and a half with the actor. The relationship ended just in time for him to ring in the new year with a villa full of models on the beach in St. Barts.

Leo wasn’t single for long, of course. By the spring he’d moved on with Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition “Rookie of the Year” Rohrbach. Unfortunately her smarts — she has a degree from Georgetown — weren’t enough to carry the relationship into 2016. Having learned just last year that St. Barts is a pretty good place to get over a breakup, he returned for seconds.
