Who Is Leonardo DiCaprio's 19-Year-Old GF, And Why Is The Couple Making Pedro Pascal Memes Trend?
Leonardo DiCaprio has a habit of "dating down," as in, he's historically never had a girlfriend over the age of 25. This tracks with his most recent girlfriend, model Eden Polani, who's only 19 compared to his age of 48. Many are contrasting their age gap with The Last of Us stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey.
Memes about DiCaprio's young girlfriends trend on social media every time he breaks up with one of them or sparks things up with a new one, leading to graphs and metrics that track his statistics in a humorous way.
So why are the memes spiking again right now, and what does this have to do with Pedro Pascal? Let's explain.
How Old Is Leonardo DiCaprio And His New Girlfriend Eden Polani?
As stated, Mr. DiCaprio is 48 years old, having been born on November 11th, 1974. Meanwhile, Eden Polani is 19 years old, having been born on March 2nd, 2003.
Why Are There Memes About Leonardo DiCaprio's 19-Year-Old Girlfriend?
Since 2016, there has been a cultural awareness of DiCaprio's consistently large age gaps with his young girlfriends. The pattern was reported on by multiple news outlets going into 2018. DiCaprio only added to the allegations as time went on, confirming people's suspicions.
The memes peaked in June 2022 when DiCaprio's then-girlfriend, model Camila Morrone, celebrated her 25th birthday. Soon after, DiCaprio broke up with her, again confirming his pattern and painting him as a bit of a weirdo.
Memes then surfaced en masse that imagined DiCaprio as a twisted mind who sentenced his female partners to the ether once they reached the no-no age. All of the memes and jokes were satirical, but there seemed to be a lot of truth in them too.
How Old Are Pedro Pascal And Bella Ramsey From The Last Of Us TV Show?
Similar to both DiCaprio and Polani, The Last of Us stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey have a large age gap too, but the latter of which is not dating like the first. Pedro Pascal is 49 years old and Bella Ramsey is 19, which makes sense given their father-and-daughter-like relationship in the show.
