a different side of Israel

DiCaprio and Peres Meeting

Peres & DiCaprio This is sort of an odd picture I thought. I got it from People.

Israeli Vice Premier and former Prime Minister Shimon Peres requested a meeting with DiCaprio, 32, within hours of the actor’s March 11 arrival in Tel Aviv with his Israeli girlfriend, model Bar Refaeli, 21, a Peres aide tells PEOPLE.

“The meeting was pleasant and interesting,” says the aide. “Shimon told Leo about his Peace Valley project [a joint Israeli-Jordanian-Palestinian economic development plan] and Leo spoke about [11th Hour,] his documentary on the environment.”

The aide says Peres asked DiCaprio to help promote the stalled Middle East peace process and to further campaign for protecting the environment globally. According to the source, DiCaprio promised to help on both issues.

DiCaprio was plagued by local photographers and barely escaped in Jerusalem the other day. He stayed with Bar’s family in Hod HaSahron. They had a tearful goodbye at the airport and seem to be good together. Hope he comes again 😉
