Leonardo DiCaprio has long been a staple in modern cinema even before being nominated for an Academy Award for his role in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape way back in 1993.
Since then, the actor has become analogous with the prestige drama film, continuously appearing under the direction of Tarantino, Scorsese, Nolan, and more. He might be the definition of a Hollywood A-List Actor.
But according to a now viral Reddit post, DiCaprio has a troubling habit of never dating a woman over 25.
As you can see, over the past 20 years, Leo has been in 8 publicized relationships, with several of them ending as soon as the woman hits 25 years of age.
The man is now 44 years old with the average of his girlfriends’ ages hovering around 22. As Matthew McConaughey’s character from Dazed and Confused so eloquently puts it, he gets older and they stay the same age.
A brief history of Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriends:
To fully grasp the magnitude of Leo’s bizarre and frankly gross desire for women in their early twenties, it’s important to look at the past to understand the present.
Gisele Bundchen (1999-2004)
Yup, there was a time when Gisele was paired with a leading man who wasn’t the MAGA hat-owning quarterback of the New England Patriots.
Leo and Gisele started dating in 1999 when he was 24 and she was just 18. Alright, sure, there’s an age difference but its not that unheard of for a widely declared handsome star in his early twenties to date an 18 year-old model. It’s not great, mind you, but I’ll give it a pass. The couple split in 2004 when Gisele was 23 and Leo was 29.
Bar Refaeli (2005-2010)
One of Leo’s longest relationships was with Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, who was 20 years old when she started dating a 30-year-old DiCaprio in 2005. Despite a 10 year difference in age, the couple stayed together until 2010 when, ding ding, she turned 25. ?
Blake Lively (2011)
Shortly after splitting up with Bar, 36-year-old Leonardo briefly dated Blake Lively, who was 13 years younger than him. The pair publicly dated until later the same year, when rumor has it Blake met Ryan Reynolds and instantly fell for him. I mean, who wouldn’t? Good for her.
Erin Heatherton (2012)
Another year, another blonde model. DiCaprio (now 37) briefly dated Victoria Secret model Erin Heatherton was was, get this, 22-years-old. Look, I understand that between two consenting adults, true love has no age, but this definitely looks like a pattern.
Toni Garrn (2013-2014)
If the age difference between Leo and 2013 girlfriend Toni Garrn was a person, Leo would probably try and date it. He was 38 and she was 20 when they first started to date and, while he never took her to a red carpet appearance, they lasted a whole two years.
Kelly Rohrbach (2015)
Model and actress Kelly Rohrbach was doomed to fail from the start of her relationship with a 40-year-old Leonardo. Why? She was 25 at the time. If we know anything about Leo by now, it’s that the man doesn’t go over 25. We’re in full yikes territory by now.
Nina Agdal (2016-2017)
Nina Agdal was always likelier to last longer than Kelly Rohrbach, if only because she was 24 when she started dating 41-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio. Yet, all good things must come to an end, because Leo and Nina broke up when Nina was *checks notes* 25. What a coincidence, folks.
Camila Morrone (2018- Present)
22 year-old model Camila Morrone is the youngest girlfriend of Leonardo since he dated Kelly Rohrbach and she was just 20 when she and the then 43-year-old man began dating in 2018. Camila Morrone is so young (audience: ‘how young is she?’) that she was born when Titanic first hit theaters. He’s also personally known her since she was an 11-year-old girl, which just doesn’t sit right with me.
Armed with this information, the people of Twitter are just as perturbed as you and I.
Do I think it’s weird Leonardo DiCaprio is 44 and dating a 21 year old? Yes. Do I think it’s predatory that he’s known her since she was a child? Yes. But do I think this pattern of behavior is dangerous and unhealthy? Yes.

i normally don’t care who someone dates as long as they’re over 18, but if your dating pool stays the same age as you get older, it just looks creepy. also ew at him knowing his current gf when she was a child.

So his latest GF was born when he started dating Gisele. ?
