Apparently, Heidi Klum was seen locking lips with Schnabel over the weekend. People reports:

The Project Runway host, 40, kicked off Oscar weekend at the Weinstein Company pre-Oscars Party in Beverly Hills on Saturday night with Vito Schnabel around 11:30 p.m. As Klum, who wore a floor-length printed dress and leather jacket, stood at the base of the stairs in an attempt to gain access to the VIP area of the party, she exchanged long kisses with Schnabel, 27.

2. Previously Schnabel’s Been Linked to Several Older Hollywood Hotties

Heidi Klum is 13 years older than Schnabel, but that shouldn’t phase him as he’s been linked to older Hollywood stars in the past. According to The Inquisitr, last November Schnabel was said to have been dating Demi Moore, who is in her early 50’s. In addition, Schnabel is said to have dated Elle McPherson:

Apparently, Vita Schnabel is some what of a well known Hollywood cougar hunter, having last dating Elle Macpherson when she was 44 and he was still the ripe young age of 21.

3. Schnabel Is an Art Dealer and Curator

Schnabel exclusively represents a number of important contemporary artists including the Bruce High Quality Foundation, Laurie Anderson, Vahakn Arslanian, René Ricard, and Theo Rosenblum. He has also represented Terence Koh and Ron Gorchov, and he has worked with Leo Gabin.

4. Famous Filmmaker Julian Schnabel Is his Father

Julian Schnabel is a famous filmmaker as well as painter, which might explain his son’s interest in the arts. Back in the 80’s the NY Times called Julian “The Carnival Man.”

Largely because Schnabel’s paintings share with religious carnivals a mixture of devotional imagery, popular culture, bad taste, large scale, theatrical flair and frenzied expression, his exhibitions become themselves mini-carni- vals, festive and even rapturous for those who share Schnabel’s sense of occasion, irritating and inflated for most of those who don’t.

Schnabel received the most media attention for his “plate paintings,” which were large paintings set on broken ceramic plates. As far as his film accomplishments, Wikipedia reports:

Schnabel directed Before Night Falls, which became Javier Bardem’s breakthrough Academy Award-nominated role, and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which was nominated for four Academy Awards.He has won the award for best director at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, a Golden Globe, as well as BAFTA, a César Award, two nominations for the Golden Lion and an Academy Award nomination.
