Celebrity Modelizers Have Been Around For Longer Than You Think

08/26/2013 03:14 pm ET

When models and celebrities collide, it can seem like the stars have aligned to create the perfect, genetically-gifted couple. But you can have too much of a good thing.

Thanks to "Sex and the City," we have a term for the men of Hollywood who seem to have an addiction to dating leggy beauties: modelizers. To give you a better idea, we've rounded up some classic examples of male celebs who have a thing for dating models. See our list of modelizers below and tell us if we're missing anyone!

Leonardo DiCaprio
Today's quintessential modelizer, Leo has dated everyone from Bar Refaeli to Gisele Bundchen to Erin Heatherton. He even romanced Naomi Campbell back in the '90s. Oh, and he's currently dating Victoria's Secret model Toni Garrn -- it's no wonder some people have started referring to modelizing as "Leonardo DiCaprio Syndrome."

Mick Jagger
The Rolling Stones frontman has had a pretty impressive roster of model girlfriends and wives. He tied the knot with models Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall, but he's also dated stunners like Luciana Gimenez, Carla Bruni and Janice Dickinson. As for his current statuesque fashion designer girlfriend L'Wren Scott? Yah, she was a model, too.

Adam Levine
Even though he's now engaged to Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo, the "Moves Like Jagger" singer seems to go through model girlfriends like tissues, dating more VS faces like Anne Vyalitsyna, Nina Agdal and Angela Bellotte. Man, backstage at the annual VS fashion show must be awkward.

Johnny Depp
After he realized his relationship with Winona Ryder wouldn't last "forever," the actor moved on to his tabloid-worthy relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. Then, after a brief fling with Naomi Campbell, Depp entered into a 14-year relationship with French model Vanessa Paradis, which sadly ended last year.

Richard Gere
The man was married to Cindy Crawford, for crying out loud. These days, he's married to model Carey Lowell, but he also had a rumored affair with Kim Basinger, a former fashion model.

Rod Stewart
Starting off his modelizing with his first serious relationship, the musician dated Dee Harrington back in the '70s before marrying his first model wife, Alana Stewart. After the couple split, Stewart dated Sports Illustrated model Kelly Emberg. He married wife number two, Rachel Hunter, then moved on to his current wife, British model Penny Lancaster.

Bruce Willis

George Clooney
The eternal bachelor has been fortunate enough to date a handful of models, including Karen Duffy, Celine Balitran, Lisa Snowdon and Elisabetta Canalis. He recently ended a long-term relationship with Stacy Keibler, who's done some modeling work. On to the next one, George!

Seal
We all know about Seal's marriage and messy divorce from supermodel Heidi Klum, but the singer has a pretty impressive roster of former girlfriends, including Tyra Banks and Tatjana Patitz. Now that he's an unmarried man, we predict another leggy model in his future.

Eric Clapton
First he lured model Pattie Boyd away from George Harrison (and married her), then he had an affair with Italian model Lory Del Santo in 1988. Flash-forward to the '90s when Clapton dated supermodel and future French first lady Carla Bruni.
