Leonardo DiCaprio’s Love Of Blonde Models Comes Down To Science

Turns out, having a “type” is not something anyone can help.

Leonardo Dicaprio is now rumored to be dating British model Roxy Horner. The two first sparked rumors of a hookup after they were spotted together at the Chiltern Firehouse in London months back, but his status can change at any time. And while Leo’s love life is endlessly fascinating, what his latest lady looks like is never a surprise—tall, tanned, blonde, poses in pictures and gets a lot of money for it.

While some may call him a “modelizer” who has no time or patience for say, a pretty school teacher or a smart nurse, he may not be able to help himself. 

A popular study by Current Biology has shown that faces appear unique to each person looking at them, and that who we are attracted to is influenced by our life experiences. So, if you are the biggest movie star in the world and are devilishly handsome, charming, and rich, you travel around the world, make movies and party on yachts. These qualify as your life experiences. With fame and fortune come beautiful people. Since only models can infiltrate his bubble, he’s drawn to the blond ones, probably because of who his first crush was, says the study.

The two-part study, done by psychologists at Wellesley College and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston—which we are wisely using to dissect Leo’s love life—had 35,000 people rate faces for attractiveness, and near-perfect face symmetry, which has long been stated as the main reason for a beautiful face, was only half the reason, they found.

The other 50 percent of attraction was found to come from “individual circumstances and experiences,” and that we likely will pick similar looking mates over and over, just like Leo. 

Here's a look back at his similar looking ladies.
