A representative for Leo puts the brakes on rumors suggesting that the 'Inception' actor has splurged on the eco-friendly car because he was 'horrified' by her gas-guzzling Range Rover.

Words have run rampant recently that has bought a black Prius that cost him around $40,000. Quick to pour cold water on the swirling speculation was a representative for the "" actor himself. To E! News, the rep stated that "there is no truth to the story".

The Daily Mail previously reported that Leo bought his 23-year-old girlfriend the eco-friendly car because he was left "horrified" by her "gas-guzzling" Range Rover. A committed environmentalist, the 36-year-old actor himself was among the first Hollywood stars who bought the vehicle years ago.

"I own a Toyota Prius; it's a step in the right direction," said the actor, who recently splurged on hybrid supercar, the Fisker Karma, in an interview. "It's a gasoline-electric midsize car that gets about 50 miles per gallon. ... We have the technology to make every car produced in America today just as clean, cheap and efficient."

Leo and Blake have been linked romantically to each other after he broke up with girlfriend for six years, . They were snapped giving each other warm embrace when on board director Steven Spielberg's yacht in May, before being seen together in Italy. They were hit with split rumor in July, but seen cruising around New York City together on bicycle later that month.
