Drew Barrymore is allegedly smitten with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Rumors are rife that the former child star has always had a crush on DiCaprio. And her recent advances on social media seemingly confirmed the reports.

On her Instagram account, Barrymore shared a throwback photo of herself with DiCaprio. In her caption, she said that she has always loved the actor ever since their first meeting.

Immediately after her fans saw her post, they encouraged Barrymore to pursue DiCaprio. And they are also convinced that the actor would reciprocate.

A source told Woman’s Day that Barrymore’s friends have also been teasing her after they saw her post.

“Drew’s friends are teasing her over what is a blatant flirty post. And she’s not ashamed of it. Drew thought he was hot ever since they met as teenagers, back when he was a total unknown. She jokes that her movie made his career, so he could at least buy a girl a drink,” the source said.

The source also claimed that Barrymore knows that DiCaprio is dating Camila Morrone, but she doesn’t care.

“She’s hoping that her cheeky Instagram play for Leo might actually lead somewhere good, though. She likes the idea of teaming up with him again in a rom-com. They’d be the perfect pairing,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. It’s not true that Barrymore wants to get into a relationship with DiCaprio. And it’s not also true that she doesn’t have any regard for Morrone’s feelings.

It’s obvious that the actress’s Instagram post wasn’t meant to be a serious one. Instead, she was simply sharing her fondness for DiCaprio but without any malice.

By the looks of it, the tabloid just took Barrymore’s post out of context. And since the actress is single, they have also been linking her to a slew of men.

However, it is important to note that DiCaprio and Morrone have been dating for five years. And there are also rumors that the actor would soon propose to his longtime girlfriend.

Some tabloids also claimed that the couple is already engaged. But they have decided to keep the details of their engagement and upcoming wedding a secret.

On the other hand, some tabloids also insist that DiCaprio would soon split from Morrone because of his so-called five-year curse.
