It is no secret that Leonardo DiCaprio was a serial dater with US Magazine charting his romantic involvement with some 17 women during his glory days. According to the new memoir from Audrina Patridge, Choices: To the Hills and Back Again, she could have been one of them if it weren’t for the notoriously private actor.

During the height of her fame on The Hills, Patridge recalled a brief interaction with the actor at a Los Angeles nightclub. “This bouncer kept coming over to me saying that Leo would like to get me a drink at his table. I looked over at his table, and he was just surrounded by supermodels. It was intimidating!” Patridge recalls in the book. “I told the bouncer I would just finish my drink and then say hello. But I never went, even when the bouncer came back over a couple more times.”

Patridge was reportedly sitting next to Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green when DiCaprio eventually approached their table. The pair “chatted for a while”. “He asked for my phone number, and we texted a little after the trip to Vegas, but we never actually hung out,” she wrote. “Leo was very private, and with the constant filming for The Hills and the paparazzi attention, it just felt too tough to make anything work.”

DiCaprio is currently linked to actress Camila Morrone whom he has been dating since 2017.
