What is this!?!?
According to sources, Leo got the heads up from gal pal Reese Witherspoon. Sheltering R-Patz from the severe sh*tstorm of Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal, Reese thought it'd be a nice idea to put the two of them in touch.
"Leo has been one of Rob's role models for years, and Rob was totally taken by surprise when Leo called him. He invited Rob along on a getaway he's planning when he's in Puerto Rico for the wrap party on the movie he's producing, Runner, Runner. Leo wants to book a mansion at a secret location on the coast so he and his pals can party in private. He's kept an eye on Rob's career ever since people started calling him the next Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo figured it would be great for him to hang out with a bunch of laid-back guys. Leo joked they could compare baseball cap collections - and told Rob before he knew it, he'd be dating a model, just like him!"
Ha! Welp… Robert could definitely pick up any model he wanted, that's for sure!
But we're so excited about this blossoming friendship! And it's true — fans haven't gone crazy over a Hollywood hottie like this since Leo's icy hand was snapped off in the Atlantic Ocean!
They're just meant to be!!
