Blake Lively admits to the weird messages she sent ex, Leonardo DiCaprio

01/09/2017

Before the greatest couple ever got together - Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds - Blake Lively was dating someone else. Leonardo DiCaprio.

The pair first sent the rumour mill into overdrive about a romance in May 2011, when they were spotted getting cosy on a yacht in Cannes, before enjoying numerous holidays together to the likes of Italy, Disneyland, and enjoying romantic days cycling together in New York City.

However, because of the pair's hectic schedules, Blake had to come up with something to keep the romance alive, and according to Gossip Girls producer Joshua Safran, it involved dolls.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Safran said: 'When I think about shooting the L.A. episodes, Blake was dating [DiCaprio] at the time, and she had this thing where she had a doll that she took photos of that she sent to Leo.

'Blake was way ahead of the curve. It was pre-Instagram. She was documenting her life in photographs in a way that people were not yet doing,' he added.

UM what? She had a doll that she took photos of??? Was she, like posing it or?

We're not actually sure what type of doll it was...a Barbie doll? Rag doll? But that is a strange one.
