Hollywood hunk LEONARDO DiCAPRIO has stunned the Italian public with his new image - a stomach big enough to brand him a BEACH whale.
The TITANIC star - currently filming his new movie in Italy - proved to onlookers that he may have sank his teeth into a few plates of pasta too many whilst enjoying sights such as the COLISSEUM in Rome.
Leo, who is seeing Brazilian supermodel GISELE, is starring in the new MARTIN SCORSESE movie THE GANGS OF NEW YORK about Italian immigrants travelling to America and getting caught up in violent riots. (RGS/WNTRE/CPT)
