Leonardo DiCaprio 'smitten with British model'

Leonardo DiCaprio 'smitten with British model'

Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly smitten with Essex model Roxy Horner.

The 41-year-old actor is believed to be smitten with the stunner - who previously dated Taio Cruz and British reality TV star Joey Essex - and jetted to London earlier this week for a date with Roxy at Tape nightclub and the Chiltern Firehouse.

A source told The Sun: "Leo didn't leave Roxy's side.

"After the club they headed to the Chiltern, where a number of onlookers said the pair looked extremely cosy together.

"Roxy is a really sweet, caring normal girl. She's naturally stunning and she has a lot in common with Leo. They're smitten and enjoy spending time together."

The pair were previously linked together in February when they partied the night away at the Rosewood Hotel after the BAFTAs.

A source said at the time: "Leo and Roxy met a while ago in LA and he was taken with her.

"When he got to London for the BAFTAs he immediately said they should hang out. When they finally met last night the sparks were flying. They were hooking up throughout the night."

Roxy, 24, previously insisted she and Leonardo are just friends, tweeting after the BAFTAs: "'You can't have a friend in the industry without people assuming it's more than that... It's a joke.

"FYI we all went our separate ways home, as friends do. Thanks, bye (sic)."

However, it has been claimed that the actor and the model spent time together at the Coachella Festival in California in April before meeting up at the Cannes Film Festival in France last month as their romance heats up.
