In a bizarre case of life-mimicking memes, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone reportedly split less than three months after the model turned 25.
If the people magazine and AND! new reports are true, Morrone is now the fourth woman to stop dating DiCaprio after her 25th birthday as the Oscar winner’s age continues to rise like water on the Titanic. DiCaprio, 47, has never publicly dated anyone in more than a quarter century, according to this handy chart created and recently updated by Reddit user TrustLittleBrother.
Representatives for DiCaprio and Morrone did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Times on Wednesday.
Naturally, social media had a field day with the news of the breakup, which played perfectly into the public’s perception of the ‘Don’t Look Up’ starwho already ended things with model Bar Refaeli, actor Kelly Rohrbach and model Nina Agdal before any of them turned 26.
To be fair, it’s unclear who broke up with whom in each case.
DiCaprio tends to date women between the ages of 20 and 25, which makes him lose his mind at the mere possibility that his next girlfriend will be born in the 2000s.
“there is no phenomenon on this planet more reliable than leonardo dicaprio breaking up with his girlfriend at 25” tweeted @zedonarrival“The statistics are breathtaking.”
“3 things are certain in life” tweeted @erinbrockobic. “death… taxes… [and] leonardo dicaprio broke up with his girlfriend before his prefrontal cortex was fully developed.
Some have jokingly attempted to defend the ‘Great Gatsby’ star for his alleged ageism by offering various benevolent explanations for why the environmental activist apparently refuses to date women over a certain age.
“maybe leonardo dicaprio feels bad for all the women who can’t rent a car until they’re 25 and he’s actually a really good guy.” tweeted @sallydarr. “Has that ever occurred to you.”
“Maybe Leonardo Dicaprio hated 9/11 so much he can’t even date women who remember it.” tweeted @sarahclazarus. “Did that even occur to you.”
But others have sided with Morrone, as well as anyone who has ever exceeded DiCaprio’s perceived dating limit.
“Would everyone leave Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriend alone??” tweeted @TheMovieMermaid. “She has enough to worry about, with the fact that she will soon be withdrawing from her parents’ health insurance.”
“I hope all of Leo DiCaprio’s exes will become friends 🙂 and form a book club 🙂 and pull off a heist of something in his mansion :)”, tweeted @karencheee.
Since their first public appearances together in 2018, DiCaprio and Morrone have kept their relationship relatively private for more than four years. Also a rising actor, Morrone is set to star in the Amazon Prime limited series “Daisy Jones & the Six” soon, while DiCaprio will next appear in the Martin Scorsese period drama “The Moonflower Slayers.”
In a 2019 interview with The TimesMorrone spoke candidly about her nearly 25-year age gap with DiCaprio while expressing her frustration with the media’s fixation on her love life rather than her job.
“There are so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have big age gaps,” she said. “I just think anyone should be able to date whoever they want to date.
“I feel like there should always be an identity besides who you’re dating. I understand the association, but I’m confident it will continue to slip away and be less of a conversation.
