When Mischa Barton, then age 19, reported that Leonardo DiCaprio, then age 30, had invited her to sleep with him
Actress Mischa Barton revealed in an interview from 2005 that Leonardo DiCaprio wanted her to sleep with him after their separation from Gisele Bündchen. There, Mischa was 19 years old. The 48-year-old Leonardo is seeing model Eden Polani, who is 19 years old.
Following news that Leonardo DiCaprio was dating model Eden Polani, 19, many people were reminded of Mischa Barton’s 2005 remarks about the actor. For the sake of her career, she claimed that her publicist at the time asked her to be with Leonardo. Over the years, the 48-year-old Oscar-winning actor has developed a reputation for never dating anyone older than 25. When he was pictured hanging out with Eden at a Los Angeles party, Leonardo recently received a lot of negative feedback on social media.

The now-37-year-old Mischa made her stage debut as a young performer and made appearances in American soap operas including All My Children. She played supporting roles in the Hollywood movies Notting Hill (1999), starring Hugh Grant, and The Sixth Sense, directed by M. Night Shyamalan (1999). But what propelled her to stardom was her portrayal of Marissa Cooper in the Fox television series The OC. For three seasons, she was a guest on the US programme.
The actor revealed that when she was 19 years old, Craig Schneider, her publicist at the time, had urged Leonardo DiCaprio to go out with him after their separation from Gisele Bündchen.
Mischa said in a Harper’s Bazaar interview from December 2005 that after she and Craig saw Leonardo at a Malibu photo shoot, Craig encouraged her to “go and sleep with that man for the sake of your career.” Leo is like 30 or something, Mischa retorted, not wanting to date him. Mischa last appeared in the thriller Invitation To A Murder in 2017 before making an appearance in the first season of the MTV show The Hills: New Beginnings in 2019.
Leonardo was rumored to be dating 23-year-old actor Victoria Lamas and model Gigi Hadid last year. It was for the survival drama The Revenant that he received his first Oscar for Best Actor (2015). In the Netflix movie Don’t Look Up (2021), starring Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, and Jonah Hill, the actor was most recently seen. In Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, he will appear alongside Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone, and Brendan Fraser later this year.
