AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend Camila Morrone is taking the heat for romancing someone who is over than two decades older than her. The 22-year-old model was trolled by social media users after posting photos of the late Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart.
The Argentina-born model captioned it with "A love like this," comparing her relationship with the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" star to Lauren and Humprey's. The latter couple had a 24-year-old age gap. They were married when Lauren was 22 years old and stayed together until his death 12 years later.
While Camila seemed to be glorifying Lauren and Humprey's romance, some people think there's nothing to be boasting about Camila's relationship with Leonardo. They think it's pretty creepy, considering the fact that Leo first met her when she was 10 years old. Leo's long record of girlfriends who are never older than 25 years old only makes people more skeptical about Camila's relationship with Leo.
"You only have a couple more years before he dumps you girl! Collect your bag," one warned the blonde beauty. "Leo only cares about your body," another commented, while another person claimed that the model's relationship with Leo will be "over when you're 25."
"I can't believe what a dork she is posting something like this," someone else said. "It's obv a comparison to herself and Leo. Girl, where are your friends?? Somebody stop her." Another sarcastically described the couple, "Like big daddy to a sugar baby... sweet love."
One person slammed Camila, "Oh please what he has with you is not love. He is using you and I'm pretty sure you are in love with his wallet and fame. So you are using him as well to your advantage. So don't act insulted. Pretty sure you have alot of miles in you even at young age."
Noticing the hateful comments, Camila took to Instagram Stories on Friday, July 26 to silence the haters. "Good morning people and happy Friday," she said in a video. "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."
The step-daughter of veteran actor Al Pacino clapped back at those haters by schooling them, "I guess I just hope on this Friday that people learn to live with a little less hatred and place their time and interests elsewhere, because living without hatred feels pretty good."
Many people have also come to Camila's defense. One shared, "So many haters.. There is a 15 year age difference between my husband and I. Who gives a shit. Just be happy and find someone who brings out the best in you."
"I agree- a love like this is beautiful," another commented on Camila's post. Someone else posted a comment which read, "Love who you love wholeheartedly and unapologetically, you can't go wrong with this!!!"
Leonardo and Camila were first spotted together in April, where they packed on the PDA at Coachella. A source recently told E! News, "It is getting more serious. They've been inseparable for the last year and are crazy about one another. They've gotten to know each other's families and they love being together."
The source said that Leonardo and Camila's relationship is "different" than his previous ones. "He's more mature and thinking longer term," the source explained. Though they are said "very content," a second source noted that "marriage is definitely not a discussion yet." The so-called insider added, "He is very serious with Cami and has been for a while now, but marriage is not something that is on the horizon."
