The pair are thought to have been dating since January, and with Leo about to play Billy Milligan - the first man to be acquitted of a sexual assault charge after pleading insanity due to schizophrenia - in new film ‘The Crowded Room’, rumours are now rife that Rihanna could be about to land a role with him.
“They want to spend as much time together as possible and this would be a huge bonding experience as she’s already been helping with his research into the character.”
Rihanna has cut her teeth in the film world already, after starring in one of the leading roles in ‘Battleship’, as well as cameo appearances in ‘Bring It On 2’ and ‘Annie’.
Although Leonardo’s representative has denied that he and RiRi are an item, they have been spotted looking cosy in public on a number of occasions.
Away from her reported return to the world of acting, Rihanna unveiled her first solo material in almost three years last month, when the track ‘Towards The Sun’ received its first play on UK radio with no fanfare or prior warning.
Weeks earlier, she released ‘FourFiveSeconds’, a collaboration with Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West which reached number three in the UK singles chart.
