Kelly Rohrbach is playing C.J. Parker in the upcoming Baywatch film, the same role that made Pamela Anderson a household name. Rohrbach is a model-turned-actress and is best known for dating Leonardo DiCaprio.
Pamela Anderson’s fame is credited to her role as C.J. Parker in Baywatch. Now, Kelly Rohrbach will don the iconic lifeguard suit as C.J. Parker for the big-screen adaptation of Baywatch, releasing this year. The latest trailer of Baywatch, starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, and Alexandra Daddario, dropped last week and showed the cast rocking the elite lifeguard look. But Rohrbach stole hearts with her own revamped version of C.J. Parker’s signature red swim suit. But since she dated Leonardo DiCaprio about a year ago, the media has been quiet about Kelly Rohrbach.
We found everything there is to know about the new Baywatch beauty, and we have Kelly Rohrbach’s wiki, including her net worth and dating history. DiCaprio’s former flame is pretty wealthy herself, and has earned a net worth of $2.0 million in her short career.
She is a Modeling Newbie
According to Harper’s Bazaar, Kelly Rohrbach said that her dream was to be an actress, but an acquaintance thought she would be better suited as a model. Shortly after she had moved to Los Angeles, she signed with IMG models and began her career. Two months into modeling, she was discovered by Sports Illustrated, and was eventually named Rookie of the Year by the magazine in 2015. In such a short career, she has achieved great success, making Kelly Rohrbach’s net worth $2.0 million.
After her first shoot with Sports Illustrated, the Connecticut native signed many advertising campaigns. Her biggest campaign was for Gap’s holiday campaign in 2014 and Old Navy’s denim campaign of 2015. She was also featured in Self, GQ, Elle, and Galore magazines and has modeled for Dannijo’s bridal and holiday campaigns.

She attended Georgetown University and graduated in 2012 with a degree in theater. She then went on to attend the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art where she pursued acting.
Rohrbach’s initial passion was acting. Before becoming a successful model, she had worked in Hollywood for two years. The new C.J. Parker had done small roles on hit shows like Two and a Half Men, Rush, The New Normal, Rizzoli and Isles, and Broad City.
Kelly Rohrbach’s breakout role in film was 2016’s, Cafe Society directed by Woody Allen. The film starred Steve Carell, Jessie Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, and Blake Lively, among others. Rohrbach had a small role in the movie, and went on to star in Baywatch.
She is an Avid Golfer
Kelly Rohrbach is known to be an outdoorsy person. She stays in shape by running outdoors because she hates the gym, and she loves hiking and the beach. Rohrbach also loves playing golf. She has played golf for Greenwich Academy, which earned a sports scholarship to Georgetown. At the University-level, she played Division One Women’s Golf for the Georgetown Hoyas.
Kelly Rohrbach got into golf because of her father saying, “My dad was a very good golfer, and he always dragged me along. I didn’t like it that much when I was a kid and my dad would always say, ‘Trust me, you’re gonna like it when you’re older,’ and now I’m really thankful I play it.”

She Dated Leonardo DiCaprio
The SI model rose to fame when she was dating Academy Award winner, Leonardo DiCaprio. He is almost 20 years her senior, but is known to date younger, beautiful ladies, mostly models. From Gisele Bundchen to Bar Rafaeli, DiCaprio’s famous girlfriends have always been in the news.
The couple dated for several months and there were rumors of an engagement, but sadly, they didn’t last. DiCaprio was busy promoting, The Revenant and Rohrbach was getting ready for her role on Baywatch. Their busy schedules got in the way and the couple split at the beginning of 2016. They parted amicably and remain good friends. Shortly after their breakup, DiCaprio was reportedly dating another young model, Roxy Horner. He was also once linked to Rihanna.
Kelly Rohrbach didn’t waste any time jumping back into the dating pool after DiCaprio. However, she hasn’t dated anyone famous. Rohrbach was spotted with an unknown man shortly after her breakup with DiCaprio, holding hands or walking arm-in-arm on separate sightings. Everything is speculation at this point, but we hope that more information comes to light soon.
