Inspired by his recent reunion with Bar Refaeli, DiCaprio returned to film his next movie with even more energy and gusto than ever before.
In 2010 he starred in the stunning psychological thriller Shutter Island, another Scorsese-directed and Appian Way-produced movie. Again, DiCaprio received widespread acclaim for his performance, and was nominated for both a Saturn Award and a Scream Award—but yet again, Oscars glory evaded him. Fans and critics alike continued to wonder—would DiCaprio ever receive the Academy recognition he deserved?
However, soon enough something would happen that would take DiCaprio’s mind off his ongoing pursuit of an Academy Award.
Having got back together with model Bar Refaeli in 2009, the couple had dated for another two years, and for a while, it seemed that everything was going to be happy ever after. Unfortunately, by 2011 it was clear that the two of them were not destined to spend their lives together, and they split up again, this time for good.
