Leonardo DiCaprio was caught prepping for his next big role by the usual spies this week, proving there’s simply no stopping a dude with an Oscar. DiCaprio is reportedly giving his performance as Nina Agdal’s significant other, a role for which he is apparently employing some unique method acting techniques, a bit more than the old college try.

The former Roseanne star was busted by People and other beach-prone sleuths bestowing some serious PDA upon the popular Danish model as they “lounged in the sand during a romantic day” in Malibu Thursday. Reviews of DiCaprio’s performance remain scarce, but sources close to the pair tell People it’s all just a “fling.” Regardless, the two were spotted doing cinematic things like kissing and relaxing while presumably pondering any number of world crises.
