Earlier this month, Cosmopolitan posted a feature about famous modelizer Leonardo DiCaprio who has been linked with the likes of Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli and Toni Garrn. At a recent Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue event, the magazine talked to some models about what they have heard on the matter. Here’s what a few of the girls revealed to Cosmopolitan.

Sara Sampaio:

Leonardo DiCaprio hangs around with models all the time. Have you ever encountered him?
I have, a lot of times. If you’re in New York City, you always see him around.
Has he ever hit on you?

No. He likes blondes.
Do models talk about him? Is he a legend among models?
I don’t know if I can say anything on that [laughs].

Chanel Iman:

Leonardo DiCaprio is known to hang around with models. Have you ever met him or encountered him?
I see him at parties a lot. But I don’t know, I never hung out with him.
Is that a thing with models? Do they talk about Leo?

Yeah, I’m not going to say. I can’t comment about it. You’re going to get me in trouble!

Gigi Hadid:

Leonardo DiCaprio is known to hang around with models.
Do you know him? Have you ever met him, or encountered him?
Um, he’s actually friends with Lily [Aldridge.] They’ve been friends for a while, so I’ve seen him at one of her parties. But he’s always been really nice. He does have a lot of models around; I’m not one of them [laughs].
Do models all talk about him? Is that a thing with models?

Yeah, kind of [laughs].
