Victoria’s Secret Angels look away now: It looks as if Leo Di Caprio has a new object of desire!

A serial dater with a string of lingerie models in his little black book, it seems that no one is a match for the actor’s charms.

But Leo and US Secretary of State John Kerry have a bromance going on that would be hard to match.

Today a photographer captured the politician and Leonardo as they embraced.

The pair touched noses, almost like a Maori ‘hongi’ greeting from New Zealand.

The award-winning actor was in Washington DC to speak at the “Our Ocean” conference this morning.

Kerry was tasked with introducing the revered actor, who spoke after a video statement by President Obama.

The Wolf of Wall Street star is an avid supporter of Kerry, having campaigned for him during his Presidency Campaign in 2004.

The conference brings together leading experts, government officials, and high-profile influencers to review the state of the science system and help protect the ocean’s ecosystem.

According to a government publicist, DiCaprio was invited thanks to his dedication and support in protecting the ocean and the environment.

Earlier this year, The Leonardo DiCaprio awarded a $3 million grant to the advocacy group Oceana, to help protect the ocean habitat and vital marine species.
