Is Leo rebounding from split with Bar Refaeli by spending time with Blake Lively?
It seems love is always in the air in Cannes.
The Cannes Film Festival, which started last week, is still in full swing, and it seems those who flocked to this tourist hub on the French Riviera have really let their surroundings get to them.
First, it was Brad and Angelina who took advantage of the natural enchantments France has to offer, and spent a romantic night out together. But they're already a couple, so they're supposed to do things like that together. But it seems that Cannes is also playing a little cupid with the other stars running amok in its region.
It seems Blake Livley and Leonardo DiCaprio were spotted wandering around Cannes's Hotel du Cap Eden Roc last Friday night. "She was wearing white and he was in a baseball cap," a New York Post spy reported. "They walked around the grounds together. It looked like they were a couple." A source for the New York Post said the two were introduced in November by Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann. (Luhrmann directed the 1996 version of Romeo + Juliet in which Leo played Romeo opposite Claire Danes. DiCaprio is also set to play Gatsby in Luhrmann's newest directorial venture.) The Post also reported that Lively was flirting with DiCaprio at Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner's birthday in January. CONTEST CLOSED! Describe Amazing Sex & Win A Trip To NYC + $1000!
Blake Lively, 23, previously dated Gossip Girl costar Penn Badgley for three years, before they broke things off in September 2010. Since the breakup, she has been rumored to be dating several eligible Hollywood men, but none have been confirmed. Is Leo just another rumored beau, or is he the real deal this time?

Although Blake's been single for nearly a year, Leo just recently became single himself. E! Online reported last week that DiCaprio, 36, had broken up with his model girlfriend, Bar Refaeli, 26. They had been dating on and off since late 2005. The couple briefly went on sabbatical in mid-2009, but were back together by early 2010. According to a source close to E!: "Leo was getting a lot of pressure from friends, family, and Bar to take the next step in their relationship and get married. He wasn't ready for that." Leo also formerly dated model Gisele Bündchen for nearly four years, also off and on. Gisele is now married to NFL quarterback Tom Brady; they have one son together. Did Tom Brady Knock Up Gisele?
If Blake and Leo are dating or hooking up, we're hoping Blake is smart enough to spot a perennial bachelor when she sees one. Who knows, maybe Blake is just looking for a little Cannes fling herself. But one thing's for sure: we doubt we'll see Leo settling down anytime soon. Bar Refaeli & Leo DiCaprio's Relationship Timeline
