Leonardo DiCaprio ordered to lose weight

Leonardo DiCaprio has been told to lose 14 kilograms for his new film ‘Inception’. The 34-year-old ‘Titanic’ star plays office worker Jacob Hastley, who becomes involved in a high-tech blackmail scandal.

The action film involves a number of fight sequences and an on-set source says Leonardo is not fighting fit. “Leonardo needs to shed at least 30 pounds. He’s gained weight recently and looks almost a bit flabby, which isn’t good, especially as the camera adds pounds.” The source elaborates, “There’s an action scene coming up at the end of the year in which he needs to appear emaciated, so the pressure is on.”

Perhaps Leonardo can take lessons from the number of supermodels the actor has surrounded himself with lately – Leonardo was recently spotted living it up in Ibiza with a bevy of bikini-clad ladies.
