Why Is Everyone Making Fun of Leonardo DiCaprio About His Girlfriends?

You’ve maybe seen the recent explosion of jokes and comments online about Leonardo DiCaprio and the women that he dates and asked yourself, “why does anyone care?” Well, the answer is simply because it’s getting weird! DiCaprio, who is known for his storied filmography and performances, tends to only date younger women. This isn’t all too surprising (not all Hollywood men can be as fabulous as Keanu Reeves), but the older DiCaprio gets, the stranger and more uncomfortable it is that his girlfriends stay the same age. There appears, in fact, to be an age cut-off point. He has not publicly dated a woman over the age of 25. While many of us know DiCaprio best from properties made decades ago and may picture him as young in our heads, the actor is now 47.

So when news broke that DiCaprio and his girlfriend Camila Morrone split up, my first gut reaction was “what, did she turn 26?” And somehow, it’s worse! She is, once again, just 25 years old and the two have been together for four years. This most recent breakup has prompted the internet into poking fun and eye-rolling at the fact that Leo keeps getting aging but, in the words of Taylor Swift, “I’ll get older, but your lovers stay my age.”
