LEONARDO DiCaprio's rumoured new love interest has played down reports they are a hot new item.
The Titanic hunk sparked reports he had a new lady in his life after he was snapped with a tall blonde on the balcony of an apartment in Miami, Florida this week (begs04Feb13).
The beauty has since been identified as model and Miss Universe Kosovo 2011 Aferdita Dreshaj - but she insists her relationship with DiCaprio is purely platonic.
She tells Eonline.com, "We were all just hanging out as friends."
DiCaprio is known for his penchant for models - he previously dated Brazilian stunner Gisele Bundchen and Israeli beauty Bar Refaeli, while he split from his last girlfriend, Erin Heatherton, in late 2012.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
