It’s difficult to imagine anyone other than Ryan Reynolds with Blake Lively. But once upon a time, the actress dated another high-profile star- Leonardo DiCaprio. Their romance was short-lived, but it did exist. The Great Gatsby and Gossip Girl star dated for about a year in 2011 when Lively was 23 years old. While the relationship surprised everyone when it happened, it didn’t totally come out of the blue.
For one, in 2007, during an interview with CosmoGIRL, Lively admitted that she had a crush on DiCaprio. However, their relationship wasn’t entirely normal because Gossip Girl showrunner, Joshua Safran, revealed a seemingly disturbing detail from the actress’ side when she was dating DiCaprio.
Did Blake Lively Send Doll Images To Leonardo DiCaprio?
Plenty of people in relationships have sent questionable images of things to their partners. But it can’t be denied that some are a bit more eyebrow-raising than the rest. Gossip Girl’s showrunner, Joshua Safran, revealed to People magazine that Blake Lively had sent images of a doll to Leonardo DiCaprio during their dating period. He said:
“Blake was dating [DiCaprio] at the time, and she had this thing where she had a doll that she took photos of that she sent to Leo.”
Thanks to horror films revolving around dolls, many associate them with creepiness. However, it’s possible that the doll meant something more to Lively and DiCaprio at that time. Neither party has ever shared such intimate details and it doesn’t look like they will do so anytime soon. When their relationship didn’t last long, many from Leo’s camp were surprised.
This is because, as per US Weekly, his friends thought that he had found the one and was ready to settle down after being a bachelor for a long time. While that clearly didn’t happen, DiCaprio apparently did love one skill of Lively.
Leonardo DiCaprio Was Fond Of Chef Blake Lively
Daily Mail reported that Blake Lively loves putting on her apron and showing off her culinary skills. As per, Leonardo DiCaprio’s friends, it is this ability of hers that won him over. Many had snickered that it looked like one of Hollywood’s serial daters wanted a housewife. During their dating period, they went to Venice, Disneyland, eco-biking, and more. But it looks like nothing made that relationship last.
More than a decade later, the relationship status of the two stars is completely different. The Titanic star is still dating and it doesn’t look like he is planning to settle down anytime soon. But Blake Lively’s story is different altogether. The actress married her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds in 2012 and currently has 4 children with him. They have been married for more than a decade now.
