Gisele Bündchen Says She Split from Leonardo DiCaprio Because She Was ‘No Longer Numbing’ Herself
Gisele Bündchen made the hard decision to split from Leonardo DiCaprio after realizing she needed change in her life
Gisele Bündchen is opening up about one of her most famous relationships.
The former supermodel says she made the difficult decision to split from ex Leonardo DiCaprio after she realized she needed a change in lifestyle.
“No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I’d chosen not to look at,” Bündchen recalls in PORTER’s Spring issue cover story. “Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”
Bündchen, 38, and DiCaprio, 44, dated for 5 years from 2000 to 2005 and were inseparable. She was even his date to the 2005 Oscars where he was nominated for The Aviator — the only time he’s brought a girlfriend as his date to the ceremony. She’s now married to New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady.
