Ah, life is good for film star Leonardo DiCaprio. Dating “Gossip Girl” actress Blake Lively, we first caught a glimpse of Leo relaxing onboard motoryacht SEVEN SEAS, Steven Spielberg‘s multi-million dollar superyacht, during the recent Cannes Film Festival 2011.
Now we hear di Caprio is about to take delivery of a 2012 Fisker Karma hybrid luxury sports sedan. And not just any Fisker Karma – the very first one ever built.
The actor is known for leading the green enviro movement in Hollywood, and his latest toy, like his Toyota Prius is built with sustainability in mind. The Karma is designed by Henrik Fisker, formerly of Aston Martin, and has been developed around an aluminium chassis.
The plug-in Karma is driven by a a pair of electric motors totaling 403hp, powered by a 22 kWh lithium ion battery, or a 175kW generator turned by a 2.2L gas engine.
Even with its eco-friendly background, the Karma features a 125 mph top speed and can go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds.
Also waiting in line for his own hybrid is Al “An Inconvenient Truth” Gore.
Just imagine the buzz if Leo were to invest in a hybrid mega yacht charter vessel?!

Apparently, actress Blake Lively is not letting the internet rumor-mill ruin quality time with new beau, Leonardo DiCaprio.
While gossip websites circulated a series of photographs purporting to show the “Gossip Girl” actress posing naked, Blake and Leo were seen relaxing and laughing onboard motoryacht SEVEN SEAS, Spielberg’s multi-million dollar superyacht, during the recent Cannes Film Festival 2011.
Lively’s spokeswoman issued a statement saying the photos aren’t real. “The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites … are 100 percent FAKE,” the spokeswoman said. “Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.“
The Internet was abuzz last week, as the five photos of a naked, busty blond taking snapshots of herself with an iPhone in front of a bathroom mirror spread among major celeb-watcher websites. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton wrote, “Blake Lively won’t be happy about this,” while site Zap2It, suggested the pictures were several years old.Lively will take legal action against any outlets that publish the photos, the spokeswoman added.
Lively rose to fame in the teen television soap “Gossip Girl.” Earlier this year she was hired as the new face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag ad campaign.
The actress had a chance to take a break from the hustle of the film fest and relax at sea with Leo and his good friend Lukas Haas onboard Steven Spielberg’s 282 foot vessel. At one point, Lively was seen enjoying a big laugh with Di Caprio before getting a warm hug from the Hollywood leading man.The former Mediterranean yacht charter vessel, motor yacht SEVEN SEAS was originally put into charter after her launch in late 2010. At the time, she was on of the largest yachts available for hire. Since then, her famous owner had a change of heart and decided to keep the yacht for private use only…at least for now.

Poor Leo. After being snubbed by the Oscar voters, the “Django Unchained” star was hard at work, toiling away like the rest of us 9 to 5 lunch-pailers.
Well…maybe “toiling” is not the right word.

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow joins Steven Spielberg for a day of boating that ends up costing him. The Hollywood Director received a small fine from the Italian Coast Guard, as his yacht came too close to the coast and angered beachgoing sunbathers in Sardinia.
According to the Daily Mail, Spielberg’s 280 foot motor yacht, SEVEN SEAS, breached maritime regulations. Beachgoers were quick to call police and the Coast Guard, who slapped the director of “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn“ with a 172 Euro fine.
As to the incident, Merchant Marine’s Vincenzo Petrella stated,
“We arrived at the scene, and there was a bearded gentleman signing autographs for people on the beach. Holidaymakers called us because the tender was so close to the shore. I recognized him instantly and he came up to me and said ‘I’m Steven Spielberg. How can I help?’ I told him that regulations forbid tenders coming within 300 meters of the shore. I said that I had no other option but to fine him.”
Per Petrella, the “very apologetic” director offered to pay there, on the spot. “I explained it had to be paid via a post office account. He took the paperwork and the next day a fax arrived at our office confirming that the fine had been paid” to the merchant navy.
Originally available as a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel, Spielberg yacht Seven Seas has been used exclusively this season by her famous owner, and numerous celebrity guests, like Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio have been spotted onboard.

Why rent a private yacht to attend the world’s preeminent film festival when you can stay onboard your own superyacht?
That’s exactly what Steven Spielberg did – opting to stay aboard his 282′ luxury yacht charter vessel, motor yacht SEVEN SEAS, during the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival, which took place in Cannes, France.
The legendary film producer and director spent most nights onboard the Oceanco motor yacht SEVEN SEAS, along with wife, Kate Capshaw.
Spielberg served as the President of the film jury for the main competition.
When asked about his role as head of the jury, Spielberg replied, “It is an honor and a privilege to preside over the jury of a festival that proves, again and again, that cinema is the language of the world.”
While other A-list celebs were forced to navigate the crowded streets of Cannes and the endless sea of paparazzi, Spielberg and his guests escaped each evening to the privacy of a, “floating villa.” Spielberg yacht SEVEN SEAS offers accommodations for 12 guests and is loaded with amenities.
The infinity swimming pool on her aft deck can conveniently be transformed into a full helipad, or used as a screen for viewing movies while on deck or in the pool, itself.
Some of our readers may remember first reading about yacht SEVEN SEAS in June, 2011, while Leo DiCaprio and then-steady Blake Lively were onboard. Later that same summer, the Mediterranean yacht charter vessel was again in the news when the Steven Spielberg yacht ran afoul of the Italian Coast Guard while guest Gwyneth Paltrow was visiting.
