The savage jab at the 'Titanic' star's dating history arrives a few days after the actor, who allegedly tends to date women under 25 years old, and his 25-year-old girlfriend Camila Morrone reportedly called it quits.

AceShowbiz - Kenan Thompson takes a jab at Leonardo DiCaprio's dating history during his opening monologue at the 2022 Emmy Awards. The award show host shocked the audience when he brought up the "Titanic" star's dating life while discussing Zendaya Coleman's age.

On Monday night, September 12, the "Saturday Night Live" star began the evening in a full black tuxedo and top hat, introducing himself as the "mayor of television." He then talked about the celebrities in the crowd when he zoned in on the 26-year-old "Euphoria" star.

"Zendaya just turned 26 last week, happy birthday. 26 is a weird age in Hollywood," Kenan told the audience. He then joked, "I mean, you're young enough to play a high school student but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio." The gag was met with gasps from the audience, while Zendaya buried her head in her hands to hide her reaction. Leo was not in attendance at the ceremony.

During his monologue, Kenan also took a shot at the lack of diversity on HBO's "Succession". " 'Succession' has 25 nominations," he said. "I love the Roy family. It's the only show with three brothers and also no brothers."

By the end of the mid-show monologue, Kenan said that he's predicting that Netflix "ain't never going to give [him] a comedy special" after all of his jokes about their financial struggles.

As for Leo's dating history, it has recently received much attention, after many fans noticed that he tends to date women no older than 25, despite being in his late forties himself. The "Don't Look Up" star recently split from his former girlfriend Camila Morrone, who is 25 years old, and is rumored to have a new fling, 22-year-old Ukrainian model Maria Beregova.

This is not the first time Leo has been roasted for his relationships at an awards show. Earlier this year, Rebel Wilson cracked a joke about his relationships while hosting the 2022 Baftas ceremony. At the time, Rebel jokingly said, "I'll give you the award for the person in the crowd Leonardo DiCaprio would find most attractive... He does like them young."
