Did Leonardo DiCaprio break up with Kelly Rohrbach before awards season because he didn’t want to take her to awards shows? With The Revenant up for so many awards, there would be a lot of talk about his relationship. And some sources are speculating that DiCaprio didn't want to have to explain why he didn't walk the red carpet with her or thank her in his speech (if, of course, he wins).

So why did DiCaprio, 41, and Rohrbach, 25, split after six months of dating? “They are both so busy, and he’s got a big movie coming out and she’s one of the biggest supermodels in the world. There is no other person in the picture,” a source told People.

It seems clear there's no one else in the picture. But Rohrbach was competing with something else: DiCaprio's career, which has always taken precedence.

As Slate notes, DiCaprio is known for dating younger models. But his relationships never get very serious. He's constantly dating young blond models who seem interchangeable. Though his relationships are relatively long by Hollywood standards, there is still a swift revolving door. And the models always look the same.

Now DiCaprio is gearing up for awards season. He’s nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award, Golden Globe, and SAG Award already.

WHY LEONARDO DICAPRIO'S NOT YOUR TYPICAL ACTOR ...

Taking a date to an awards show can be stressful, especially if the relationship isn’t serious. If DiCaprio wins, everyone would analyze their relationship, how they looked together on the red carpet, if he mentioned Rohrbach in his speech and if he kissed her. DiCaprio clearly felt he didn't want to put either one of them in that position.

And with DiCaprio getting rave reviews for The Revenant, he’ll want to focus during awards season. As Peter Travers notes, DiCaprio “provides a portrait of a man in full. It’s a virtuoso performance, thrilling in its brute force and silent eloquence. Nominated by the Academy for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Aviator, Blood Diamond, and The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio is favored to win this time. But that’s not the point. His talent is. The Revenant shows DiCaprio stretching his acting muscles, testing himself, eager for challenge. That you do not want to miss.”

WHY LEONARDO DICAPRIO IS DEVOTED TO FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE ...

DiCaprio has never won an Oscar despite being nominated for four different movies. But with the rave reviews for The Revenant coming in, many believe that this could finally be his year. DiCaprio has been waiting a long time, and he didn't want any distractions.
