A tabloid claims Leonardo DiCaprio is jealous of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-stars Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie hitting it off. The story is completely made-up. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
According to Woman’s Day Australia, Pitt and Robbie had an “on-set flirt fest” while shooting their upcoming movie, and their other co-star is feeling left out. The magazine claims that Pitt is “captivated” by Robbie, despite her being married to producer Tom Ackerley for two years. “It’s an open secret Brad finds her spellbindingly beautiful,” a supposed source tells the magazine.
The alleged insider adds, “It’s just a bit of playful fun, because he knows Margot would never cheat on her husband. But whenever they’re together Brad simply can’t help himself. He has told her straight that if she wasn’t taken, he’d be begging her for a date!” The questionable tipster goes on to say that Pitt “was following her around like a puppy” last week at the premiere of their film at the Cannes Film Festival, “and she seemed extremely flattered by the attention.”
The seemingly phony source further contends that DiCaprio is unimpressed “by their connection,” adding, “It was like he and Brad were in this friendly tussle to get most of Margot’s attention.” The so-called “insider” adds that DiCaprio, who previously co-starred with Robbie in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street, is “a bit miffed that Brad and Margot have hit it off because he always thought of her as his muse.”
The tabloid is attempting to create some sort of nonexistent love triangle between a married woman and two of her co-stars, but there’s simply no truth to the premise. For starters, Robbie said in an interview with Porter magazine last year that she was “barely on set” with Pitt and DiCaprio as the three don’t share many scenes together in the film. The idea the actress had an “on-set flirt fest” with Pitt simply isn’t accurate. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Fight Club star has already told us on the record several times that there’s nothing flirtatious about his dynamic with Robbie.
Unfortunately, Woman’s Day has been coming up with various angles to create controversy around the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars. Gossip Cop previously busted the tabloid for falsely claiming DiCaprio “had his eye on” Robbie during filming and her husband was worried about the actor trying to steal her. Shortly after that, we called out the outlet for wrongly alleging Pitt was ready to move on from Angelina Jolie with his female co-star.
The tabloid is once again trying to stir up drama simply because the three stars have been in the news as a result of their film’s premiere at Cannes. DiCaprio isn’t jealous of Pitt and Robbie’s so-called “connection.” The outlet’s account of the situation is pure fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
