Bar denies engagement to Leonardo

Bar Rafaeli has denied she is engaged to Leonardo DiCaprio.

The model, who was spotted wearing a ring on her fourth finger, claimed the band was a gift from a friend and not from the Shutter Island star, who she has been dating on and off for four years.

"No, there wasn't (a proposal) - let me explain: these rings, which are beautiful and made by a friend of mine, won't fit any other finger except this one," she told E!

Asked if talk about the Hollywood heartthrob popping the question was just speculation, Bar responded by saying she's not rushing into marriage.

"Yeah, what can I do? I'm 24 and there's still time. I'm in no hurry. I'm happy with where I am," she added.
