Leonardo DiCaprio Dating 19-Year-Old Model Because It’s Good to be Leonardo DiCaprio

I never much cared for Leonardo DiCaprio after seeing about an hour of Titanic before I got bored and turned it off, and so I avoided his movies until Django Unchained came out. After the film I turned to my friend and asked him “When did Leonardo DiCaprio became an actor?”

Now that I actually like Leo, The Cut caught him out on the town with 19-year-old model Juliette Perkins, and honestly, that makes me like him more. Because let’s admit it, if you were Leonardo DiCaprio, you’d be dating a 19-year-old model, too. Who wouldn’t? DiCaprio has apparently been out with a bevy of young beauties, but he seems to have settled on Perkins for now.

Since August, he has been spotted with the brunette model Lorena Rae, 23, the blonde model Toni Garrn, 25, the brunette model Alina Baikova, 27, an as-yet unidentified blonde model, age take a guess, the brunette model Candice Blackburn, 20, and the blonde model Juliette Perkins, 19.

I’m sure someone is going reading this getting red in the face about the age disparity, but these are consenting adults who can do as they please. And plenty of people with age disparities can have healthy, loving relationships. When I was younger and Woody Allen started seeing Soon-Yi Previn, he was subject to all sorts of mudslinging because she was young and the daughter of Mia Farrow, with whom Woody Allen had a child, but they’ve been together almost 30 years and will celebrate their 20th anniversary later this year, so obviously they had the last laugh.

So do I believe that this young model is going to be the love of Leonardo DiCaprio’s life? Probably not. He’ll probably do what George Clooney did and marry someone who manages to be entirely out of his league despite being the most eligible bachelor in the world. But as long as he and Perkins are having fun and she’s not sending him weird pictures of dolls, who are we to judge?
