Leonardo DiCaprio has invited Robert Pattinson on a boys' trip to get over his split from Kristen Stewart. And so he can get people to mention his new film.

The two have been put in touch through their mutual friend Reese Witherspoon. Not sure how Leonardo and Reese are bessie mates, but for the purpose of this story they are.

A source told website Showbiz Spy: "Leo has been one of Rob's role models for years, and Rob was totally taken by surprise when Leo called him... Leo 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, (plug, plug, plug) Runner, Runner.

Apparently the Titanic star wants to make the gathering exclusive and feels particularly protective of the Twilight fodder because they have been compared to each other in the industry. Rob also has a massive fan base who might just go to see Runner Runner if they become friends.

The insider, who likes to say Leo an AWFUL lot, continued: "Leo wants to book a mansion at a secret location on the coast so he and his pals can party in private. Leo got in touch with Rob through Reese Witherspoon, who Leo met during a Haiti fundraiser two years ago (aaaah). Leo's kept an eye on Rob's career ever since people started calling him the next Leonardo DiCaprio."

Leo wants Robert socialise with his "down-to-earth friends" in an effort to overcome his recent cheating scandal. Because only the very down-to-earth have "exclusive" mansion parties in Puerto Rico.

The Leo-loving insider added: "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!"

Ah, interchangeable Victoria Secret underwear models, you can't get more down-to-earth than that.
