Gisele Bündchen Broke Up with Leonardo DiCaprio Because of His Man-Child Ways

At this point, pretty much everyone knows who Gisele Bündchen is: a world-famous, former Victoria’s Secret model and wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

But, before the name Bündchen became synonymous with Brady, in the early 2000s, Bündchen was once in a highly publicized relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio. And it was only just recently that Bündchen revealed what went wrong in that relationship and why she ultimately had to end things with DiCaprio.

During the time she was dating DiCaprio in her twenties, she revealed that despite the fact her career had taken off, she was actually in a very dark place, experiencing panic attacks and depression. Here’s what she said in her recent interview:

“When I was going through my panic attacks, I didn’t even feel like I could share with anyone. I thought maybe I don’t have the right, everybody is going through so many difficult things in the world, and I don’t have the right to feel this way. So I’d suppress it, and the more I suppressed it, the bigger it became.”

Since she had been subsisting on a steady diet of alcohol and frappuccinos, eventually, Bündchen decided that an entire lifestyle makeover was the way to go. She cut out alcohol, sugar, and smoking, started doing yoga, and partaking in daily exercise. And as her health started to improve, Bündchen then started casting a more critical eye towards DiCaprio. According to her, DiCaprio wasn’t exactly as interested in personal development as she was:

“Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”

So yeah, it seems that while Bündchen decided to embark on living a life of self-improvement and better health, DiCaprio wasn’t on board with rubbish, like “self-awareness” and “introspection.” We all know about DiCaprio’s well-documented hard party days and his “Pussy Posse” in the 1990s and early 2000s which evidently was taking its toll on Bündchen. No longer interested in dating a stunted man-child with no promise of bettering himself, Bündchen called it quits with DiCaprio.

And for all intents and purposes, Bündchen went on to have a much better life than she did when dating DiCaprio. Even if you’re not a fan of Tom Brady, he and Bündchen do seem to have a pretty healthy and successful marriage. And DiCaprio’s life appears to have stayed exactly the same and is still partying with models on boats and switching out blonde twenty-something girlfriends every few months.

I guess some people will always find DiCaprio’s lifestyle to be awesome and cool no matter what. But often what looks cool and awesome in your twenties, tends to look sadder more pathetic as one crawls further into middle-age. Particularly to those twenty-one-year-old models.
