Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Pattinson are reportedly planning a trip to Puerto Rico together. According to various sources DiCaprio invited the British actor to join him for an invitation-only private party to celebrate the finishing of new movie "Runner, Runner," which DiCaprio produced.
A source close to DiCaprio has told Showbiz Spy: "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!"
Pattinson was reportedly introduced to DiCaprio through their mutual friend, actress Reese Witherspoon. Pattinson and Witherspoon have been close friends since they worked on 2011 film "Water for Elephants" together.
Witherspoon has been a rock for Pattinson to lean on during his recent split from long term girlfriend Kristen Stewart, whose affair with director Rupert Sanders was very publicly revealed.
Pattinson even reportedly stayed with Witherspoon for a period following his split from Stewart, after he moved out from the apartment he had been sharing with his "Twilight" co-star.
Witherspoon and DiCaprio have also been close friends since they met two years ago at a fundraiser for Haiti.
Pattinson has had a turbulent time over recent weeks following the scandal of his partner's affair. Stewart was photographed at various locations kissing and canoodling with Sanders, who had directed her in his film "Snow White and the Huntsman." Sanders, a married father of two, has also been on damage control and has stated his hope that his wife, who played Stewart's mother in Sanders' film, would stay with him despite his affair.
Pattinson recently sold the Los Feliz home he shared with Stewart, indicating that their relationship is seemingly over.
On Monday, Creation Entertainment, the company behind the "Twilight" conventions, released a statement informing fans that neither Stewart or Pattinson would be appearing at the conventions to celebrate the last installment of the "Twilight" series, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."
An official statement released by the company stated: "The passion and dedication of Twilight fandom has been amazing and we're out to throw one last giant convention, a final gathering to see old friends that have made up the Twilight family."
"Although Rob, Kristen and Taylor will not be with us this time out we will have a super line-up of other Twilight stars and the weekend will be filled with special events, movie prop and costume displays, contests, panels, auctions, parties, exclusive merchandise, music and much more, including some surprises!"
