Watch your back, Leonardo DiCaprio.
A video making the rounds on Twitter Monday shows the actor and producer chatting with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, Lauren Sánchez, at the LACMA Art+Film Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday. In the video, Sánchez briefly has her arm around DiCaprio, and the two seem to be hitting it off, which apparently wasn’t lost on Bezos.
“Leo, come over here, I want to show you something…,” Bezos tweeted alongside a shirtless photo of him hugging a sign warning of a “fatal drop.”

Bezos and Sánchez, a TV host and helicopter pilot, have been dating since at least January 2019, when they were outed as a couple amid the announcement that Bezos and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie Scott, were divorcing.
Bezos’ and Sánchez’s relationship immediately became tabloid fodder, with the National Enquirer publishing leaked texts Bezos had sent to Sánchez and saying it had access to racy photos of the then-Amazon CEO. In a blog post, Bezos declared war on the National Enquirer and alleged the Saudi Arabian government was involved in the leaks. (The Saudi Arabian government denied any role in the situation and the Enquirer maintains that Sánchez’s brother Michael was the sole source of the leaks.)
Since then, Bezos and Sánchez have been in a relationship that’s taken them everywhere from India to luxury yachts in the Caribbean. The couple recently purchased a $78 million home in Hawaii and hope to “be a part of supporting the local community,” a report from Pacific Business News said.
For his part, DiCaprio has been dating the 24-year-old model and actor Camila Morrone since December 2017.
