This is out of character for one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriends—she speaks.

Kat Torres, the 24-year-old Brazilian bombshell fits all of Leo’s criteria—she’s blonde (check), a model (check), exotic (check)—and she recently confirmed that she’s dating the 38-year-old actor with Brazil’s Extra newspaper.

“I met Leo in Cannes,” she said. “We were staying in the same house at the [film] festival [in May].”

Kat, who’s signed to Elite Model management’s Paris branch, spoke to the outlet after photos of the couple were taken while they were out in public this summer.

“I really don’t know how the photographers got the picture because we were well guarded [by security] and no one could come close in any circumstances,” she said, insisting they’ve been trying to keep their relationship out of the tabloid limelight all this time.

Kat appears self-aware, but granting interviews with entertainment media doesn’t exactly help the pair keep a low profile.

“Leo is amazing, but I worry about what he will think about me talking to you,” she said. “We have a pact that nothing can ever be said about our relationship. In Europe it is different. People see us together in many places so they do not need to ask us about anything.”
