Leonardo DiCaprio & His Mom


This was a typical Leonardo DiCaprio kind of vacation. This past weekend, Leo went to the birthday party of Top Shop founder Phillip Green. For those of you who don't know who or what a Top Shop is, think H&M, but maybe more expensive because they pay Kate Moss a lot of money and have to make it up somewhere else. Oh, and they are invading the US, so it will not be long. Oh, and wait until you meet Phillip's daughter. Seriously, you will love her. She loves dating D listers. Imagine dating someone who got kicked off The Bachelor halfway through. That is her type. Finished in 10th place on American Idol? Give her a call and she will go party with you.


Anyway, Leo was in Cancun over the weekend partying and getting paid and also brought his girlfriend Erin Heatherton and his mom. Here is the catch. Mom got to stay with Leo. Erin? She had to stay several miles away and got summoned when Leo needed her. This is not new. Leo usually travels with his girlfriend of the moment, his mom, and a female friend of his mom. Go to dinner while out of town? Mom is going with. Hotel? Mom is in the same hotel on the same floor. After his weekend in Cancun, Erin went home, but Leo kept on vacationing with mom.

leo is leo. but its always bad news to date someone w/mommy issues. and someone who puts mommy first over you.

this is what I've found from my experience and from watching a male relative I am close with who is too close to his mother: as long as they treat mommy nicely, they can treat girlfriend very very badly and they won't have any qualms about it.

and the reason they treat the girlfriend badly is because they push her away instead of pushing mommy away. its that simple.

My brain can't make this work. What????

Spill Enty! He was your besty once. Do tell...

Ms Cool said...

I once had a boyfriend that was super close to his mother. She was a beast to me and it was very creepy.

dia papaya said...

Thanks @annabella. Now I understand, I guess?

His mom's not even that pretty?!?

Leo it's time for an intervention. 1-800-THERAPY.

What. the. Hell?

Brenda Love said...

Maybe deep down inside Leo is just a middle aged lady trapped in an A lister's body.

ABlake said...

I'm of 2 minds on that.
A guy who is respectful of his mother can be seen as 'if he treats her well he will treat you well'
HOWEVER
There is such a thing as being too close. Cut the cord already. The mothers (in my experience) are the ones who encourage this behavior from birth. They refuse to let their little boys go, even when their 'little boys' are well into their 30's.

As far as this goes, bah. No biggie. He's harmless and it's not like he's ever going to be a sure bet in the 'will be getting married this year' pool. He treats his piece of the week like meat. That's nothing new. At least he's respectful to his mother.

Tsk tsk Jack Dawson. You were so hot once.

MISCH said...

Call me crazy but I bet Erin did just fine...Leo is very generous, what I'm still trying to understand is if the girls are all beards...

jetfuelgenius said...

I think a lot of these A listers travel with a dozen people...if I had all that money I'd take hoardes of people with me on vacations, especially if I was getting paid to vacation - they just put "accomdations and travel for 10 additional guests/entourage" or whatever in their rider...although I find it odd that the girlfriend stayed miles away...that's kind of a head scratcher. I can't say anything bad about Leo though, I am a big fan of his work. Not a crush fangirl thing, I don't think he's sexy at all - I mean of how his career has evolved and the movies he makes.

Beauty has nothing to do with it. Mommy issues have to do with anxiety, fear and trust. Some women are really good at persuading, convincing, bribing and blackmailing their sons into this kind of relationship. It starts young too and is kind of abusive. Don't know what the deal is with these 2 but other people I have known like this...its completely abusive on the part of the parent.

timebob said...

is is Saturday? I think enty just revealed another blind item....

I think Erin will put up with it since she is a no name model and Leo fame bump will do to her what it did to Bar Rafaeli. Nobody knew who she was before him.

SaintsFan said...

There was a blind a while back (not sure if it was this site) that was about a guy who slept in the same bed as his mom and was not surprised if he woke up and found other family members in the bed as well. He claimed they were all just that close. I'm thinking there is a big chance it's Leo.

ABlake said...

Isn't he an only child?

spacecowboy78 said...

He is. Doesn't mean there aren't other family members or close friends afoot. I don't think its him though.

FrenchGirl said...

Leo loves his mum and it don't look serious with his new girlfriend: where is the scoop?

Princess said...

Dated someone that was glued to his mother. He couldn't do anything without calling her. Finally I looked at him one day and said "You're buying a cell phone, why do you need to call your mother?" I think it hit him how ridiculous it was and from then on, he did things on his own. But wow I will never touch someone with an attachment to their mother like that again. Love Leo though, he can do what he wants, it's not like I'll ever date him lol. They are all adults. If his current piece is ok with being put up a few miles away, then so be it.

Renoblondee said...

My mom and I are really close. Best friends practically but no way would I want her on all my trips and meals and I'm a woman for christ sake. Gross and weird.

Anonymous said...

This just made me chuckle. I don't know why.

EmEyeKay said...

If I could swing it, I'd take my friends and certain family members with me on fun vacations. Share the wealth!

There's nothing attractive about a guy too attached to his mom, but I think it's cool that they're close.

@jetfuel... agree. He doesn't make my heart pound but I like his work.

My BIL lives with his mom. He's 50. She came up here to work for "precious stevie" 7 years ago and was going to stay with him in his one bedroom until she found a place. She still lives there. He sleeps on the couch, she has the bedroom. They go out to eat together, vaccation togther and work together. He was in a 12 year relationship but I think he was bearding her. He's a cardiologist... he could afford to buy her a house and him a house too, but they stay together in his small rental unit. oh, he also buys all of her cars and clothes so she looks professional work work. My mom and i are close but not like that.

I have another freind, who is 43 and lives with her dad. They vaccation together, go to plays together, go out to eat together. She blows off other plans to hang out with Daddy. And she wonders why she can never get a second date with a man

Doc Girl said...

I can't believe Gisele put up with that bullshit with Leo for so long.

hunter said...

Erin probably left early for a modeling commitment but the separate rooms thing is a little weird.

Jesse D said...

Eh, there probably aren't many women he can trust not to spill his life to the tabloids or are only interested in him for the fame or money. Nobody loves you like mama.

DueDiligence said...

Hard to tell with Leo. It would be easy to speculate 7 different ways about what his deal is.

I know a couple of guys pushing 50 who are too close to their moms. These are very good friends (one is a relative) and I STILL can't figure out if they are closeted and in denial. One thing for sure though, the moms in each case have essentially manipulated them from a young age into being surrogate husbands. Nothing sexual mind you, but this weird deal where the son from an early age is trained into serving the mom's emotional needs. The kid never sees it. He just thinks he's being a good son. But the mom always manages to be in the middle and somehow sabotage any chance the son has of marrying and being independent.

Leo seems to be a Gordian knot of issues that may never be fully known.

jbdean_79 said...

Not that I would WANT my mom on every vacation (as we have contrasting opinions on a lot of things) but I dont really see a problem with this. If I could afford it, like him, I'd send my mom on every vacation she wanted to go on. I thought I read an interview with him saying she was basically his only support through childhood, I could see him wanting to pay her back so to speak.

Now if he only hangs out with her while they're on vacation... that's another story.

Nothing wrong with treating your mother well.

califblondy said...

I had a long-term with a guy who couldn't cut the cord with an adult daughter, so I cut him. I consider myself to be very close with my children, but that doesn't mean I have to call them 20 times a day or even more when I'm out of town.

Personally, I think Leo likes the fellas and isn't as creepy close to Mama as this makes him out to be.

Liz said...

@Misch- Leo is not the generous type. In one interview I've read he admits to being very cheap. He said something about unforeseeable circumstances that could cause him to lose his money.
I love Leo the actor, but Leo the man is a different story. This guy has zero respect for his girlfriends, so I wouldn't bs surprised if she was put up in a much cheaper hotel. He doesn't even want her to sleep near him? He's a complete jerk.

Anonymous said...

@Liz, it's probably out of respect for his mother that hes not banging a new supermodel a single room away on one of his probably 15-20 annual vacays.

I don't get what everyone is so weirded out about but it doesn't matter. He's Leonardo Fucking DiCaprio. He still wins.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I think the allure of dating a celebrity would quickly wear off if the mom went everywhere with us. No good could ever come from being with that much of a mama's boy.

Liz said...

@thereal...: The post says he had his "girlfriend" stay several miles away. Even if they'd slept in the the same room or had adjoining rooms, it doesn't mean they have to have sex.

I still love Leo the actor, but not sure why women date him.

ardleigh said...

There is man in my neghborhood who was like this. Mama was WAY too close. Mama died last year, son went a bit crazy.

Anotheramy said...

I think Enty is telling us something but I'm not completely positive what.

pesky808 said...

I wonder what his Mom thinks of him treating women like this? Wouldn't she want him to finally settle down?

ooopsitsme said...

Leo, honey... you need an older woman in your life who you can respect .... I'm available... Call me

Duran said...

This is so unkind.

Culture is a bunch of guidelines you all seem to think everyone needs to follow; lest they be labeled a "weirdo".

The man treats his mom well, and I'm sure his girlfriends cannot complain living the sort of lifestyle they are.
