The Truth About Leonardo DiCaprio And Camila Morrone's Relationship

For the last few decades, Leonardo DiCaprio has been one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors. In his younger days, DiCaprio solidified his status as a Hollywood heartthrob with floppy-haired roles in Titanic and Romeo + Juliet back in the '90s (via IMDb), becoming known for some of the most epic first kisses in teen movies. Since then, DiCaprio has certainly aged pretty well. These days, Leonardo DiCaprio is best known for his critically acclaimed acting chops and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle. Even though the actor is now in his 40s, he has never settled down — in fact, he's had a long list of young, beautiful girlfriends.

However, it seems as though DiCaprio may have turned over a new leaf with his relationship with Camila Morrone. His girlfriend certainly fits with his usual type — she's a young, beautiful model. But according to a range of sources, it seems like Morrone might be DiCaprio's most serious relationship to date. Could this couple end up together for the long haul? Here is the truth about Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone's relationship.

Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly met Camila Morrone when she was just 10

These days, Camila Morrone is a successful model and actress. But when she met Leonardo DiCaprio, she was reportedly just a child. Apparently, Morrone grew up with none other than Al Pacino as a step-father figure. Pacino and her biological mother never married and split up in 2015, as noted by The Washington Post. However, in a 2018 interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Morrone revealed that she calls Pacino her step-father.

According to W magazine. because of Pacino and DiCaprio's close friendship, Morrone is said to be an "old family friend" of DiCaprio's. InStyle reported that their friendship dates back to when Morrone was just 10 years old.

But don't worry! DiCaprio and Morrone's relationship didn't become romantic until much, much later. It wasn't until December of 2017 that they started seeing each other. Us Weekly first reported the new relationship, with a source claiming they were "hooking up."

There's a pretty significant age gap between Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriend

As you may have guessed, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone have a pretty significant age gap between them. DiCaprio was born in 1974, while Morrone was born in 1997. This makes their age gap a staggering 23 years!

The age gap seems to be a pretty touchy subject for the couple. When Morrone acknowledged the age gap on her Instagram page in 2019, she was met with a lot of hatred. She posed a cryptic image featuring the famous old school Hollywood couple Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, who also had an age gap of over 20 years, on Instagram. Morrone wrote in the caption, "A love like this," leading some to assume she was alluding to her own relationship. As Vogue reported, she was met with quite a lot of judgement, with one user writing, "You only have a couple more years before he dumps you girl!" Another wrote, "Leo only cares about your body." Wow, it must be tough for this couple to deal with so much judgement!

Camila Morrone gets tired of the judgement about her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio

After Camila Morrone received so much hatred for her Instagram post of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, she finally decided to speak up about the age difference between her and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Initially, Morrone responded to the haters directly on Instagram. According to Cosmopolitan, she posted to her Instagram Stories, saying, "I just read some of the comments on my Instagram and... my God, people are so mean and full of anger with people that they know nothing about." She later addressed this story in an interview with Vulture, saying, "I didn't even think about it beforehand. I probably should have."

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times about the image, she insisted that she hadn't meant to allude to her own relationship. However, she did acknowledge that the judgmental reaction deserved some kind of comment. "There's so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps," she said. "I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date." Nevertheless, she did admit she understood the intrigue. "I probably would be curious about it too," she added.

Camila Morrone's chill personality may help her fit in with Leonardo DiCaprio's friends

Despite the huge age gap between Camila Morrone and Leonardo DiCaprio, the couple seem to have quite a lot in common. According to various sources who spoke to E! News in 2018, Morrone's personality fits with DiCaprio's incredibly well. "She's got a great, spunky personality that Leo is drawn to and she's obviously gorgeous," one insider explained. "All Leo's friends like Cami too. She's just a low key, cool girl," the source added. It sounds like, in spite of the generational difference, Morrone's low-key vibe means she fits right into DiCaprio's life.

Apparently, Morrone's friends and family also get along with DiCaprio. The source explained, "Leo also has a great relationship with Cami's mom and he spends time with Cami and her mom often over at their house in Los Angeles." Reportedly, the three of them have even been on holiday together. It sounds like Morrone and DiCaprio's relationship is super easy, with their respective worlds fitting together seamlessly.

Camila Morrone certainly fits Leonardo DiCaprio's type

It wasn't just the infamous age gap between Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone that initially got people talking. Elle took a look at the actor's dating history and noted that he'd been through a pretty long string of casual girlfriends, most of them young models. In the past, DiCaprio has been linked to models and actors like Kristen Zang, Helena Christensen, Gisele Bunchen, Blake Lively, Nina Agdal, and Lorena Rae, among many others.

One Reddit user even made a chart of his previous relationships to illustrate that he seems to have an unofficial cut-off age of 25. And at the 2020 Golden Globes, host Ricky Gervais poked fun at DiCaprio, saying, "Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood – nearly three hours long — Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him."

What with Morrone being 23 years younger than DiCaprio and a gorgeous model, it's clear that she fits his usual type. Initially, many people likely assumed that Morrone would be another casual fling since she fit the type so well. However, as time went on, the couple has proved them wrong.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone seem to enjoy living a seriously luxurious lifestyle

Dating Leonardo DiCaprio certainly seems to have its perks. By the looks of things, he and Camila Morrone are enjoying a seriously lavish lifestyle! Of course, that's hardly surprising — after all, DiCaprio was listed as one of the 20 most wealthy actors in the world as of 2020, with a jaw-dropping net worth of $260 million (via Smooth Radio). The couple appear to spend the majority of their time travelling the world, relaxing on gigantic yachts, and dining out in L.A.. Talk about living the dream!

In 2018, DiCaprio and Morrone were spotted on a luxurious European holiday that involved hopping around France and Italy on a yacht, as reported by E! News. They were also spotted returning from a skiing holiday via a private jet (via People). In 2019, the couple were seen at Coachella, as noted by the Daily Mail. In addition to all of their expensive getaways, the couple has also been spotted at a variety of Los Angeles restaurants over the years (via Daily Mail). We have to say, it's hard not to be a little jealous of this jet-setting couple's lifestyle!

Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone's relationship got serious in 2018

By the sounds of things, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone took things pretty slowly at the beginning of their relationship, keeping things casual. However, in 2018, reports began to surface that things were getting a lot more serious between the pair. A source told E! News, "It is getting more serious. They've been inseparable for the last year and are crazy about one another." The source went on to say that both DiCaprio and Morrone also loved spending time with each other's families. The source even described the relationship as "different" and said that DiCaprio had started "thinking longer term." Another source spoke to Us Weekly and suggested that the couple had even "talked about getting engaged."

The couple only seemed to get closer. In July 2019, an insider told People, "It's definitely not a casual relationship. Camila spends a lot of time at his house." And even though DiCaprio has showed no signs of settling down yet, it's certainly not out of the question. In 2014, he spoke to Gayle King about the potential of marrying, saying, "The truth is it's gonna happen when it's gonna happen, and I'm just gonna let it happen naturally."

Has Leonardo DiCaprio been turned into an Instagram boyfriend?

In May 2019, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone attended the Cannes Festival. Morrone was there to promote her film Mickey and the Bear (via Just Jared), while DiCaprio was there for Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood. The couple supported each other, but decided to walk the red carpet separately (via Metro). However, the pair found plenty of opportunity to spend quality time together, according to the Daily Mail.

At one point, they were spotted taking photos by the beach — or rather, DiCaprio was seen taking pictures of Morrone. An image of DiCaprio taking shots of his girlfriend went viral, after someone posted on Twitter, "Leonardo DiCaprio now knows: You either die a hero or live long enough to become an Instagram boyfriend." We have to admit, it's pretty cute (not to mention funny) seeing DiCaprio become an "Instagram boyfriend."

It turns out that Morrone actually saw the viral tweet and had a few words to say. "Poor thing, he's being called an Instagram boyfriend," she told Vanity Fair. "He's an environmentalist and a movie star and it doesn't mean a thing," she went on, implying that he's so much more than simply an Instagram boyfriend.

Camila Morrone has admitted that dating Leonardo DiCaprio has its downsides

For most women, the idea of dating the dreamy Leonardo DiCaprio probably sounds like a fairytale. However, Camila Morrone has admitted that the relationship also comes with its downsides. As she explained to the Los Angeles Times, her ties to DiCaprio have made it hard for her to establish her own identity and forge an acting career built off of her own merit. Luckily, her impressive turn in Mickey and the Bear seemed to have helped. "I think more and more now that people are seeing the film, I'm slowly getting an identity outside of [my relationship]." She went on to say it had been frustrating, noting, "I feel like there should always be an identity besides who you're dating."

The other downside to dating DiCaprio is the public scrutiny. She told the Wall Street Journal, "More exposure leads to more judgement and negativity." She added that it could be "a little bit of a bummer." Like many celebrities, Morrone eventually decided to tune out the negativity by avoiding online comments and keeping certain things private (via Vulture). We're sure her boyfriend can teach her a thing or two about navigating being in the public eye!

The couple celebrated Camila Morrone's 23rd birthday with a lavish boat party

True to style, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone went all out for her 23rd birthday party in June 2020. According to Page Six, the couple hosted a lavish party on a yacht. Apparently, they chose a 43-meter long Leight Star Super Yacht that left from the Marina Del Rey in Los Angeles. The couple and their guests took to sea from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The guests were made up of a few familiar faces, including actress Nina Dobrev, Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, actor Kevin Connolly, and Inception's Lukas Haas.

Photos from the event show what looks to be a Wild West theme, with the guests dressed in bandanas, cowboy hats, and casual clothes (via In Touch). DiCaprio was one of the few guests to wear a face mask as a COVID-19 precaution. By the looks of things, Morrone enjoyed a truly special, fun-filled day.

Is Leonardo DiCaprio into Camila Morrone's main goal is to settle down and have a family?

Based on some of Camila Morrone's past comments, we think it may be possible that she and Leonardo DiCaprio really are in it for the long haul. In 2019, the actress spoke to Vogue about her hopes and dreams. Surprisingly, acting isn't actually her main priority. "Success to me would be first and foremost to have a family," she said. "I was an only child for 18 years and I'm Latino, so I love big families and creating a small home world." Sounds like Morrone knows exactly what she wants — and it seems to involve settling down and starting a family.

Those who know about DiCaprio's dating history might assume that he would be a little freaked out by this family-oriented woman. However, in 2018, the actor revealed to Lee Cowan for CBS Sunday Morning that marriage was on his radar. "I think everybody — not everybody — but I think that, you know, eventually when the time is right, absolutely, yeah," he said. Maybe DiCaprio's goals are more in line with Morrone's than we initially thought!

Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone had their first official outing at the 2020 Oscars

After more than two years of dating, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone finally had their first official public date — at the Oscars, no less! The couple proudly sat together in the front row, meaning they got a lot of camera time. Even though the couple sat together at the show, they decided to walk the red carpet separately, as noted by People.

Because the couple was front and center, the event gave us the chance to see this couple's interactions up close — and one moment really stood out. During actor Brad Pitt's speech, he gave a shout-out to his colleague and friend Leonardo DiCaprio. As some fans noticed, Morrone gave her boyfriend a totally adorable little look. As one Twitter user said, "Ok, that loving smile Camila Morrone gave her boyfriend Leo DiCaprio during Brad Pitt's tribute to him in his #Oscars speech is mad cute."

Another thing that got people talking was Morrone's outfit. Her beautiful pale pink gown certainly made her look like Hollywood royalty. But it turns out, she wore an actual wedding dress designed by Carolina Herrera. Could this be a preview of wedding bells to come later? Perhaps!

Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone got even closer during the 2020 pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic swept across the U.S. in 2020, forcing most of us to enter into some form of lockdown. For Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone, the pandemic had one upside — it gave them the chance to spend some quality alone time together and get closer than ever before.

In March 2020, a source told Us Weekly in that the couple was "always together," as they were self-quarantining together. This gave them the chance to take a break from the public eye and just focus on each other.

Another source told People, "[DiCaprio] is usually very independent, spends lots of time with friends, but because of the lockdown, he has mostly spent time with Camila." The insider added, "He loves being with her." Apparently, the couple spent "24/7" together during 2020, which reportedly helped them to become even more "serious." Apparently, they even adopted two puppies together, according to The Sun.

Friends of the couple think Camila Morrone may be the one for Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone are certainly an adorable couple, and after years together, they've certainly proved that their age difference means nothing to them. Friends of the couple seem to be pretty sure that this relationship is here to stay.

In June of 2020, a friend of the couple explained to The Sun that Morrone had changed DiCaprio. "You'll see a shift in Leo since he's been with Cam," the friend said. "She's not impressed by flash stuff." This is "refreshing" for DiCaprio, whose previous girlfriends have been more interested in exclusive, lavish parties. With Morrone, DiCaprio spends his time meditating, doing yoga, and exploring nature.

The source continued to explain, "They want a quiet, calm life." So, could she really be "the one" for DiCaprio? The friend said, "It's pretty clear that's what Leo has fallen for — this silly, funny, adorable beauty." How sweet!
