The rumoured relationship between Leonardo DiCaprio and model Eden Polani, who is 19 years old, serves as further confirmation that the iconic Reddit graph depicting the chronological progression of his prior lovers is accurate.
In case you missed it, DiCaprio was most recently seen with the French-Israeli model at the Ebony Riley new EP release party, where most contemporary relationships start. As soon as people pointed out once more that DiCaprio appears to be terrified of dating women above the age of 25, the internet immediately exploded in flames.
It’s time for a lesson for those fortunate enough to not be aware of DiCaprio’s dating history, so grab a notepad and paper. The 48-year-old actor, who was once dubbed the “sexiest man alive,” has a curious tendency to briefly date women in their early 20s before re-entering the dating scene once they turn 25.
The shortest of his subsequent age gaps was when DiCaprio began dating model Gisele Bündchen in 1999 when she was 18 and he was 24. Their relationship lasted until 2004. Now that Bündchen is recently single, maybe the ex-couple will do a Bennifer 2.0 and restart their romance. Nothing but a dream.
DiCaprio has also been connected to women 25 or younger during their relationships, including Blake Lively, Kate Moss, Nina Agdal, Bar Refaeli, and most recently Camila Morrone. In addition, model Gigi Hadid, who is 27 years old and a mother, smashed the glass ceiling when she appeared with Leonardo DiCaprio.
The same joke about Leonardo DiCaprio leaving women once their frontal lobes are completely formed has been circulated on the internet for years. Others have noted how similar the fictitious relationship between Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey’s characters in The Last of Us is to his purported age difference with Polani of 29 years.
In fact, that same debate over power dynamics erupted on Twitter as word of DiCaprio’s newest relationship rumours spread there. So much so that a meta-discourse even started when persistently online guys revealed they knew a little bit too much about rules governing the legal age of consent, as the person who tweeted: “Leonardo DiCaprio is dating an adult woman. Yes, she is young, but come on, she is 19 years old.”
It’s significant to remember that DiCaprio isn’t Hollywood’s only serial age-gap monogamist. Long before him, the movie industry frequently portrayed age differences as innocent, quirky, and frequently unimportant to the dynamics of their relationship; Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck shared a 13-year age difference in the beloved romantic comedy Roman Holiday, and Humphrey Bogart was 30 years older than her in the 1954 movie Sabrina.
For a very long time, both men and the media praised the trend of Hollywood bachelors dating younger women. But with each woman that DiCaprio dates (and dumps) before they turn 25, the tides are turning against celebrities like him, and people are starting to pay attention.
Could Leonardo DiCaprio be the celebrity who made dating younger women uncool?
