Thanks to the staggering levels of stardom after the success of Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio was now one of the most famous and desired celebrities on the planet.
Imagine being that level of famous—you can’t even go out for a walk, or pop out to the shops for some milk, without being mobbed by legions of fans and paparazzi! That’s probably why, in 1997, DiCaprio was rumored to be stepping out with mega-famous supermodel Helena Christiansen. The relationship was never confirmed but if they were dating, it makes sense—she must have been one of the few people in the world who understood what his life was like in those crazy times.
At this time, DiCaprio was still incredibly young—a major global superstar at the tender age of 23. Can you imagine reaching those heights of fame at such a young age, and being adored by thousands of screaming fans wherever you went?
The now mega-famous DiCaprio was undoubtedly a worldwide heartthrob, and the young superstar would go on to enjoy a string of high-profile romances with other famous faces. One, in particular, was Natasha Henstridge, who DiCaprio was linked with numerous times in 1998.
