I’m a relationship expert – why Leo DiCaprio is RIGHT to only date young models… even if it makes him a running joke | The Sun

FOR nearly three decades Leonardo DiCaprio has been one of Hollywood's hottest heartthrobs, and now the actor is single once more.

We revealed this week that the actor has quietly split from his girlfriend Camila Morrone after several years together.

The love affair, which insiders say came to its "natural conclusion", coincidentally comes months after the model turned 25.

And a look back at the star's love life seems to hint that the star certainly has a type – both in profession and age.

Leo, 47, hasn’t previously publicly dated a woman over the age of 25, and almost exclusively goes for models.

And while this often comes under intense scrutiny, psychologist Emma Kenny doesn't believe it is necessarily a bad thing.

Speaking to The Sun, the relationship expert says: "Leonardo DiCaprio is good looking, wealthy, talented and well-loved by his close friends. He has fortunate foundations that offer him opportunities and perspectives that very few of us have.

"His inability to commit long-term may be seen by some as a flaw within his nature, but it is more likely a preference that he has developed due to his understanding of the fickle world of Hollywood, where relationships rarely stand the test of time.

"His own parents divorced when he was a toddler, potentially skewing his perception of long-term relationships.

"He is in a highly unusual position, which allows him to pick and choose whoever he wishes to be with until he grows either bored, or recognises that his partner wishes to move to more secure ground through marriage, or by having children.

"The ages of the women he dates, and the point at which their relationships end seems to coincide with these life markers.

"As opposed to Leonardo being an emotionally immature man child who refuses to grow up, he may simply recognise that he has no intention of giving up his adventures and refuses to conform to a societal blueprint he feels no need to follow."

Here, we take a closer look at Leonardo's love life over the last 28 years.

Bridget Hall

Her age at split: 17

Leonardo himself was just 19 when he started dating a Victoria's Secret model for the first time in 1994.

American Bridget Hall was the lucky lady, and she built up a hugely successful career, appearing on the cover of Vogue and starring as the face of Guess.

Their romance came to an end, however, when Bridget reportedly found their 'night of love' disappointing.

Naomi Campbell

Age: 25

They were rumoured to be romantically involved in 1995, but actually supermodel Naomi and Leo remain good friends today.

Naomi – who made numerous appearance on the Victoria's Secret catwalk between 1996 and 2005 – is a regular at his charity benefits and the pair often jet off on exotic holidays together.

Kristen Zang

Age: 23

Leo was 22 and just on the cusp of mega fame when he dated Kristen Zang for 15 months in 1996, and she even accompanied him to the premiere of Romeo and Juliet.

While a source told The New York Daily News that Kristen was "the love of his life" , she apparently dumped him because of his immaturity and "posse of young model-hounds".

Eva Herzigova

Age: 25


Another year, and another stunning model – this time Czech beauty Eva Herzigova.

The pair dated briefly in 1998, around the time the Victoria's Secret model was divorcing Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres.

Wonderbra model Eva once described Leo as a "wonderful person", saying: "Our first night was a really nice experience.

"He is a very kind person and full of energy."

Gisele Bündchen

Age: 23

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen was 18 when she was wooed by Leo in 2000 – and she was 23 when they split.

She was his date to the Oscars, and the pair dated for five years, enjoying dates to basketball matches.

There were even rumours of an engagement at one point, although it wasn't to be and the pair split amicably.

In her memoir Lessons she wrote: "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.

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

Bar Refaeli

Age: 25

Sports Illustrated beauty Bar and Leo dated on and off for six years after meeting in 2005 at a Las Vegas party.

Bar was 25 when they eventually split for good in 2011, with a source telling the New York Post: "Neither are ready to settle down and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions."

Blake Lively

Age: 24

She's now blissfully happy with actor and funny man Ryan Reynolds, who she shares three children with, but before that stunning actress Blake dated Leo for around five months in 2011.

They appeared at Cannes Film Festival together, and were pictured looking cosy on a yacht there, before holidaying in Italy together.

Blake even flew out to Australia to visit Leo on set in Sydney, but just a few months later it was all over.

Erin Heatherton

Age: 23

Leo dated Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton in 2012.

The pair's romance lasted for 10 months until "crazy schedules" drove them apart.

A source told US Weekly: "There's no bad blood – they still care about each other a lot."

Toni Garrn

Age: 22

Leo began dating German-born Toni in 2013, and they enjoyed an 18-month romance.

However, reports at the time claimed Toni was annoyed that Leo spent one night clubbing with 20 girls in Miami.

They were spotted together years later in 2017, leaving a club in the early hours when Toni was 25, but it didn't last.

Kelly Rohrbach

Age: 25

Sports Illustrated model Kelly and Wolf Of Wall Street actor Leo went public with their romance in 2015 when they were spotted cycling around New York together.

There were even rumours the pair had got engaged, with reports suggesting he'd proposed during a dinner at an Italian restaurant.

After they split a source told PEOPLE: “They are both so busy and he’s got a big movie coming out and she’s one of the biggest supermodels in the world. There is no other person in the picture.”

Nina Agdal

Age: 24

Model (unsurprisingly) Nina was first spotted with Leo partying in New York in 2016.

The pair enjoyed multiple holidays together, including a beach break in the Bahamas and in Malibu, but just a year later they broke up.
