Leonardo DiCaprio likes an age gap. Hardly a newsflash. Yet people are still making a Titanic deal (sorry) out of the 41-year-old actor’s new relationship.
The latest object of Leo‘s affections goes by the name of Chelsey Weimar. She’s a model. A Victoria’s Secret model. A Victoria’s Secret Pink model.

The evolution of Leo's love for the age gap is impressively linear. At 22 he was dating Kristen Zang, also aged 22. After that there was Gisele Bündchen who was only a five years his junior. But once Leo hit his 30s, his partners didn't - there was 12 years between him and Blake Lively, then 18 with German model Toni Garrn.
