Lorenzo Lamas is speaking out on daughter Victoria Lamas‘s relationship with noted lothario Leonardo DiCaprio.

“I know she likes him very much,” Lorenzo told The New York Post when discussing Victoria’s view of DiCaprio.

Lorenzo was sure to add that the two were not dating, though. Victoria gushed over the Oscar-winning actor after being seen getting into his car on Christmas Eve.

“I think they met last month. I’m not sure of the circumstances, but that’s what she told me,” Lorenzo admitted saying that his daughter is now “smitten” with DiCaprio.


He offered dating tips that he had shared with her. “I told her to treat the relationship like a holiday — just enjoy it as much as you can for as long as it lasts. And if it lasts for more than a typical holiday, great. But if not, then just guard your heart, you know? Because she’s very young.”

Lamas couldn’t resist adding in a dad joke about the Titanic star. “I just told her, you know, absolutely no trans-Atlantic cruises with Leo. Anyway, I’m excited for her. I know that it’s been a while since she’s had a serious relationship … She’s got a big heart and she tends to give it freely.”

Lorenzo called the publication back only 15 minutes after the initial interview had ended to tell them that his daughter simply “just wants to keep everything private.”

“They’re friends, they’re not in a serious relationship,” he said. “They’re not dating. She’s fond of him, obviously. But they’re not dating, and she does not want that out there because that would be really bad. It’d be embarrassing for her if he should happen to read something that said that they’re dating and they’re not.”

Rumors of a potential romance between the two sparked when Victoria and DiCaprio were spotted last week at The Bird Streets Club in West Hollywood.
