Leonardo DiCaprio has earnt himself a reputation for dating young, beautiful women.
But until now, we hadn’t realised that the Oscar-winning actor appears to place such a strict age-limit on the ‘young’ aspect of his dating criteria.
Thankfully someone has made a helpful graph revealing that the 44-year-old ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ doesn’t really date anyone over the age of 25.
The hilarious graph, created by a Reddit user, has gone viral on social media and it shows the timeline of Leo’s relationships – as well as measuring the ages of each of the women he dates against his own age.

Overall, the graph seems to illustrate that despite Leo getting older himself, the age of his girlfriends has stayed roughly the same, hovering in the early twenties and never going above 25.
The last time the Great Gatsby star dated someone remotely close to his own age we have to rewind to 2005, when he and model Gisele Bündchen ended their five-year relationship.
He was 29, almost 30, and she was 24.
After their breakup, Leo, dated Israeli model Bar Refaeli for five years from when she was 20 years old and a then 23-year-old Blake Lively for five months in 2011.
And at the moment he is in a relationship with 21-year Argentine model and actress Camila Morrone.

No doubt the fuss about Leo’s seemingly strict age criteria will be welcomed by Pete Davidson.
The 25-year-old former flame of Ariana Grande is currently dating Kate Beckinsale, 45, and has hit back at the age-gap backlash the couple have received, saying there isn’t nearly as much scrutiny placed on high-profile men dating much younger women.
Calling out the “crazed fascination” with the twenty year gap between him and actress Kate, the comedian told SNL host Colin Jost: “It doesn’t really bother us.
“But then again, I’m new to this. So if you have questions about a relationship with a big age difference, just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Disick, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, whoever the president of France is, Mel Gibson, Jagger…”
