Leonardo DiCaprio visits Israel

Tuesday, March 13, 2007 |  by Staff Writer
Leonardo DiCaprio visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial with his girlfriend, Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli on Monday evening.

The 32-year-old Oscar award winning actor, who arrived on Sunday, also toured the Western Wall tunnels, causing a field day for press worldwide.

While waiting for the couple to finish their tour, DiCaprio’s bodyguards punched photographers and damaged their equipment.

“Two of his [DiCaprio's] security guards were arrested by police after being involved in a fight that broke out,” said Mickey Rosenfeld, Israel police spokesman. “They are being questioned.”

The two were whisked away in a white van. DiCaprio has been dating Rafaeli for about a year and is staying with her family in Hod Hasharon, near Tel Aviv.

DiCaprio has received Oscar nominations for his roles in “What's Eating Gilbert Grape,” “The Aviator” and “Blood Diamond.” Rafaeli is featured in Sports Illustrated magazine's recent swimsuit issue.
