New Delhi, Nov 4 : Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has said that he's an introvert when it comes to women - and as a result he was never too successful with the ladies while he was young.
The 'Beach' actor may have dated women like Helena Christensen, Gisele Budchen and Bar Rafaeli, but he is not a smooth talker with women, the star himself says.
"I've always been a slow starter. My first date was with a girl called Cessi. We had a beautiful relationship over the phone all summer and then when we met I couldn't look her in the eye," DiCaprio said.
Although, DiCaprio is keen to get rid of his playboy image and settle down, he intends to be covert about his personal life, reports China Daily.
He said: "Defining yourself to the public on a consistent basis is death to a performer.
The more you define who you are personally the less you are able to submerge into the characters you do, and people will think, 'I don't buy him in that role."
