Ricky Gervais is right. It seems Leonardo DiCaprio refuses to date women older than 25.

At Monday’s Golden Globe Awards, host Ricky Gervais made a joke at Leonardo DiCaprio’s expense.

And while many of the British comedian’s digs were a little rough, one certainly felt… fair.

“[The Irishman] wasn’t the only epic movie,” Gervais started. “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him.”

Of course, Leo laughed it off, albeit, looking a little sheepish.

You see, Leonardo DiCaprio has a reputation for dating young, beautiful women.

But until now, we didn’t quite realise how strict the “young” criteria has been for the Oscar-winning actor.

A helpful graph has shown us that the 45-year-old outright refuses to date anyone over the age of 25.

In fact, three times he has ended a relationship with a woman before her 26th birthday.

The eye-opening graph was created by Reddit user TrustLittleBrother, who shared it on the platform last year. It illustrates the timeline of Leo’s relationships, as well as the ages of each of the women he dates against his own age.

As we can see, as Leo's age goes up, the age of his girlfriend hovers in the early twenties.

The last time the Great Gatsby star dated someone even close to his own age was back in 2005 when he and model Gisele Bündchen ended their five-year relationship. At the time he was 29 (turning 30) and she was 24.

Of the breakup, the Brazilian-born Victoria's Secret angel told Porter that it was caused by a change in her lifestyle.

"No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I’d chosen not to look at," she said in an interview with the magazine in 2019.

"Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes."

Next, Leo dated (also model) Bar Refaeli, who was 10 years his junior, for five years, before they split in May 2011 — a month before her 26th birthday. Coincidence? We don't think so.

Since then the age gap between Leo and his girlfriends has only widened.

His age-aversion is made even clearer when we realise he broke up with his girlfriend of a year, Danish model (how'd you guess?) Nina Agdal in May 2017, two months after her 25th birthday.

And then, perhaps in response to the close call, he started dating his current girlfriend, Argentinian model Camila Morrone, who was 20 at the time.

This is her age around 11, by looks:

And when it was taken, Leo was in his early 30s.

Now she looks like this:

Camila is now 22, making Leo 23 years older than her, which just happens to be a year older than the age Blake Lively was when he dated and dumped her back in 2011.

We could keep going, but you get the picture.
