Given DiCaprio’s long list of romances during 1997 and 1998, it might be easy to consider him as somewhat of a ladies’ man. And he certainly put the hours in for his long-term search for love!
But actually, DiCaprio was dedicated to more than just his love life. As well as his romantic and professional achievements during 1998, he also established the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, a non-profit organization to help promote environmental awareness and education. DiCaprio’s passion for saving the planet is something that he would go on to display throughout his career.
Despite DiCaprio’s seemingly endless list of leading ladies, in 1999 he began dating one particular famous face that would go on to appear by his side for many years.
1999 was the year that he began dating supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and it was clear from the beginning that the two of them were utterly infatuated with each other. DiCaprio may have got himself a bit of a reputation as a ladies’ man, but his relationship with Bundchen made it clear that he was dedicated to finding himself a long-term love.
