LEONARDO DiCaprio is helping Robert Pattinson through his recent split from Kristen Stewart.

The 'Great Gatsby' actor wants to help his friend deal with his break-up from his Twilight co-star and has invited him to Miami for the summer.

It is said Robert, 27, has been miserable since his on/off relationship with the 23-year-old actress came to an end - and while he is tempted to take a year away from women, Leonardo wants to convince him otherwise.

An insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Rob's been mooching around LA and staying on friends' couches.

"Leo rang him and told him to have a shave, put on some nice clothes and rent a house near him in Miami for the summer.

"He told Rob he's too young to settle down and ought to sow his wild oats."

Although it is reported the actor isn't "the sort of guy ... [to] play the field", it seems he has been tempted by Leonardo's plan.

The source added: "Rob's the sort of guy who has long-term girlfriends and doesn't play the field.

"But Leo's right - he's miserable in LA, where there are too many memories of Kristen and mutual friends they have in common. He's going to go down to Miami, put on a smile and see what happens.

"Leo's in Europe right now but he's heading back to the States later this week. He's determined to fix Rob up with one of the models he has in his phone book."
