Leonardo DiCaprio rang in the new year with friends aboard a luxurious yacht in St. Barts.

The 40-year-old actor was spotted puffing on an electronic cigarette while chatting with the group on Thursday, and at one point, he took his shirt off to work on his tan; later, he and his vacation buddies hit the beach and waded in the ocean. True to form, Leo was surrounded by pretty ladies, including a brunette beauty that he smooched on the cheek and a blonde who bore a resemblance to his on-off girlfriend, model Toni Garrn. The couple was rumored to have broken up late last year and haven't been seen together since September.

Leo has been laying pretty low these past few months, though he did celebrate his 40th birthday in a big way back in November; Leo's NYC bash was attended by famous friends like Tyrese Gibson, Robin Thicke, and Russell Simmons, and also reportedly brought out nearly 80 models.
