Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie have been at the center of false tabloid stories since they first co-starred together in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street. Now that the two are reuniting for Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, the bogus reports have started emerging again. Here are five recent wrong rumors about the co-stars.
In September, Gossip Cop busted Woman’s Day Australia for falsely claiming that DiCaprio was pursuing Robbie on the set of their upcoming movie. The unreliable magazine failed to mention that DiCaprio is dating model Camila Morrone. The actor had been in a relationship with the model for more than nine months at the time the story was published, and the two are still together. In fact, recent reports suggest that their romance is becoming increasingly serious. Regardless, sources assured us DiCaprio wasn’t hitting on his married co-star.
In July, Gossip Cop debunked a Life & Style story claiming DiCaprio called out Brad Pitt for flirting with Robbie on the set of Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. The article was a complete work of fiction. For starters, Robbie’s first day of filming on the Quentin Tarantino movie took place just one day before the magazine published its phony story. Additionally, Pitt wasn’t on set that day and the actor’s spokesperson later confirmed that he and the actress hadn’t even began working together yet. DiCaprio didn’t confront his co-star over nonexistent flirting.
Gossip Cop called out New Idea in April for alleging that Robbie’s husband, Tom Ackerley, was worried about DiCaprio trying to steal his wife on the set of their new film. The tabloid contended that the assistant director was jealous and wary of the movie star given his reputation as a “ladies man.” However, Robbie had already debunked past rumors about her and DiCaprio having any sort of romantic connection. “We’re friends. Those rumors were inevitable, but there’s no truth to them,” she told Vogue Australia when The Wolf of Wall Street was released. Their dynamic hasn’t changed and Ackerley never worried about the actor stealing his wife.
Also in April, back when Robbie was still just in talks for Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, NW wrongly reported that Ackerley wasn’t allowing his wife to join the film because he didn’t want her working with Pitt and DiCaprio. The magazine claimed that the assistant director had trust issues and didn’t want his wife around the two handsome leading men. Around the same time the bogus story was published, E! News dedicated an article to Robbie and Ackerley’s strong marriage, noting that he’s “very supportive” of her career. More importantly, Robbie officially joined Once Upon a Time In Hollywood just a few weeks after Gossip Cop debunked the tabloid’s false narrative.
And finally, Gossip Cop busted Woman’s Day Australia in January for similarly reporting that Ackerley was upset about Robbie reuniting with DiCaprio. As noted above, the assistant director is a champion of his wife’s career and doesn’t hold her back from work over jealousy of her co-stars. Also, Robbie had previously described DiCpario as “a wonderful big brother,” adding, “He took me under his wing and always looked out for me, which is really nice.” The relationship between the co-stars has always been friendly and professional. The actress’s husband had absolutely no issue with the two teaming up for a second time.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
