Leonardo DiCaprio, 48, allegedly has another new girlfriend who wasn’t old enough to see Titanic when it was released in 1997.
In fact, his rumored new girlfriend, Eden Polani, 19, wasn’t even born until 2003, which means that DiCaprio was her age in 1993, ten years before she was born.
DiCaprio was slammed online over the unconfirmed dating rumors after the two were spotted sitting together at an EP release party for singer Ebony Riley.
It’s unclear if DiCaprio and Polani are really dating, and he was spotted out with another model, Victoria Lamas, 23, just weeks before hanging out publicly with Polani. He was also linked with Gigi Hadid briefly in late 2022.
Many people have criticized DiCaprio online for the notoriously large age gaps between him and his girlfriends, but with Polani potentially being the youngest yet, the criticism has been much harsher.
“Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend is so young her high school experience was interrupted by COVID-19,” one person quipped on Twitter.
Another person said, “[Let me know] when we’re gonna stop making silly jokes about Leonardo DiCaprio dating extremely young girls and start calling him a predator lol.”
“At this point I can’t even join in on the jokes anymore, if Leonardo DiCaprio is approaching 50 and dating a teenager, then he is an actual sexual predator let’s be clear,” someone else tweeted.
In fact, DiCaprio’s reputation for seemingly breaking up with his girlfriends by the time they turn 25 is one that has been steadily consistent since the 1990s, which was the last time he dated someone his own age.
According to Elle, DiCaprio’s apparent first model girlfriend, Bridget Hall, was only three years younger than him when the two dated in the early ’90s. DiCaprio was born in 1974, while Hall was born in 1977.
DiCaprio even allegedly dated older when he had a mid-’90s fling with supermodel Naomi Campbell. Campbell is four years older than the actor.
Model Kristen Zang, who was also born in 1974, even dated the actor for four years in the ’90s.
DiCaprio then went on to start dating model Gisele Bündchen in 1999, marking the last time he dated someone so close to his own age.
Since Bündchen, each of DiCaprio’s girlfriends has been at least ten years younger than him, the gap widening with each relationship. His last long-term relationship was with model and actress Camila Morrone, who was 20 when they started dating and (you guessed it) 25 when they broke up.
