Emily Mortimer and Leonardo DiCaprio may have worked closely for months together in Martin Scorsese’s new psychological thriller Shutter Island, but when it comes to the personal life of the man she calls “the world’s most gorgeous movie star,” the new mom admits she hasn’t a clue.

Asked about the recent rumblings that DiCaprio may finally settle down with longtime girlfriend Bar Refaeli – despite some occasional bumps in their relationship and his rep’s denial the duo became engaged – Mortimer, 38, let out a laugh and said, “I didn’t know he wasn’t married! I’m sure that he will, yes, and be very happy.”

While Mortimer – red-carpet ready in a sleek, black Oscar de la Renta dress at Wednesday’s Manhattan premiere of her movie only one month after giving birth to May Rose Nivola, her second child with actor-husband Alessandro Nivola – didn’t dish about DiCaprio and his main squeeze, the actor’s longtime friend, Roberta Armani (niece of Giorgio Armani, whose company sponsored the Ziegfeld Theatre event), told reporters that the pair are well-suited for each other.

“They are very similar,” said Armani. “Not only do they look alike, they are both very lively and warm. No pretenses at all.”
