Picture the scene – Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Pattinson in their trunks on a beach in Puerto Rico. Sounds pretty good, eh?
Well this lovely beach fantasy could soon be a reality as Leo has said he wants to take R-Patz on a boys’ holiday to help him get over his recent heartbreak.
Robert split from long-term love and Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart in July after finding out she’d had an affair with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. And, understandably, Rob’s been pretty down ever since.
Reese Witherspoon, who’s a mutual friend, apparently put the fellas in touch after Titanic star Leo expressed concern for the 26-year-old, who’s often been compared to him.
Leo, 37, has now offered Rob a chance to forget about Kristen by taking him away to Puerto Rico.
“Leo has been one of Rob's role models for years, and Rob was totally taken by surprise when Leo called him,” a source told Showbiz Spy.
“He invited Rob along on a getaway he's planning when he's in Puerto Rico for the wrap party on the movie he's producing, Runner, Runner.
“Leo wants to book a mansion at a secret location on the coast so he and his pals can party in private.”
Leo feels protective of Rob because he’s been following his career ever since the comparisons between the two of them were first made.
“He's kept an eye on Rob's career ever since people started calling him the next Leonardo DiCaprio.”
Leo's hot model friends
Leo, whose girlfriend is lingerie model Erin Heatherton, is keen to set Rob up with some of her good looking gal pals.
“Leo joked they could compare baseball cap collections - and told Rob before he knew it, he'd be dating a model, just like him!”
The insider continued: “Leo figured it would be great for him to hang out with a bunch of laid-back guys.”
And a bunch of celebrity journalists maybe?
