Leonardo DiCaprio Passes Beefcake Torch To Zac Efron

November 6th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Titanic shot a young Leonardo DiCaprio into international heartthrob status. But now, at the ripe old age of 33, star of The Departed is much happier that he doesn’t have to deal with being labeled as a “teen idol.”

While promoting his new film Body of Lies starring a heavyset Russell Crowe, DiCaprio told press on the red carpet, “I look at young Zac Efron and think ‘Go get it pal, leave me in peace.’”

I’m sorry, Leo…did you say something? It’s hard to focus with Zac’s nipples calling my name. He stars in a personal fantasy I like to call Body of Sighs.

    I think I missed the day when Leonardo DiCaprio was considered beefcake.

    One problem with this story.. it’s a complete fabrication.

    Leo’s people put out a statement, and the publication that originally ran it agreed and apologized.

    I still love Leonardo.
