If you were stuck in traffic en route to the Hamptons this weekend and thought you spotted Hollywood hunk Leonardo DiCaprio chillin’ with a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model on the side of Montauk Highway as you rolled by, you weren’t hallucinating.
Oscar-winning megastar DiCaprio and his Danish supermodel girlfriend Nina Agdal were involved in a minor car accident this past weekend in the Hamptons, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six and DailyMail.
DiCaprio, 41, and Agdal, 24, were riding along Montauk Highway in Wainscott in a Range Rover on Sunday when their car was rear-ended by a Mini Cooper, say the tabloids, and were temporarily stranded on the side of the road while police investigated the scene and a tow truck hauled away the Mini Cooper.
The acclaimed actor, his gorgeous squeeze, and the driver of the Mini Cooper were all uninjured, the outlets report, and DiCaprio (ever the gallant gentleman and forever my Jack Dawson) was seen by witnesses checking to make sure the other driver was okay, while lovingly comforting Agdal as she affectionately nuzzled into her main man’s chest—PDA galore, actually, show the photos!
DiCaprio, who first melted hearts around the globe alongside Kate Winslet in 1997’s Titanic and won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in his portrayal of creepy Long Island financial fraudster Jordan Belfort in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street, brought home an Academy Award earlier this year for his performance in The Revenant. He’s also been an activist for animal rights and the environment, particularly speaking out against global warming.
You might say it’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Tinsel Town heartthrob. Besides the fender-bender, he recently got tangled up in a U.S. Department of Justice corruption investigation ironically involving allegations The Wolf of Wall Street was bankrolled by misappropriated funds from a multi-billion-dollar Malaysian Sovereign Wealth Fund. (DiCaprio is not named in the DOJ’s complaint, but referred to as “Hollywood Actor 1.”) Read The DOJ Complaint HERE
Agdal graced the 50th anniversary cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and has modeled for Victoria’s Secret and Billabong, among many other fashion mags and campaigns.
No word yet on whether DiCaprio, who’s dated plenty of models before—including a five-year romance with Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen—will do as Queen Bee suggests and finally “put a ring on it.”
Either way, my heart will go on.
