LEONARDO DiCaprio is planning to convert to Judaism so that he can marry girlfriend Bar Refaeli.
The 36-year-old Inception star — a non-practicing Catholic — has made several secret visits to Israel where Bar, his girlfriend of five years, comes from.
“Leo’s sudden intense interest in Israel, its culture and religion is the clearest sign yet that he intends to marry Bar,” a source told Britain’s Mail on Sundaynewspaper.
“He has been staying with her in a hotel in Tel Aviv for a few days at a time recently so that he can avoid the photographers outside her apartment in a nearby suburb.
“Now he is looking into converting for her.”
Leo has previously revealed he’d like to a start a family in the future.
“I don’t think I need to have children to play a father in the movies,” he said earlier this year.
“This feeling is in me, I understand it completely.
“In my private life, I still have time to become a dad, and I’ve no desire to rush”.
