Phillips is another former model who found herself on DiCaprio’s hit list. She briefly dated the star in 1998 but their relationship didn’t go very far. However, he did have a massive influence on her career because he helped her get a meaningful movie role. DiCaprio introduced her to movie director James Toback and she starred in Black and White.
Since then, Toback received many accusations of being a serial sexual predator so maybe this wasn’t a good thing. Anyway, her time with DiCaprio signaled a career change that lasted for two decades. It’s funny how meeting one person can cause a seismic shift in how things turn out (via Famous Fix).
