After photos of him attending a party with Israeli model Eden Polani, 19, emerged, fans slammed the rumored gossip that Leonardo DiCaprio is seeing a woman who is much younger than he is.
Social media users have now added a bizarre new context by equating the purported age difference of 29 years between DiCaprio and Riley with Pedro Pascal’s age difference with his The Last of Us co-star, Bella Ramsey.

Today I learned that Leonardo DiCaprio dating a 19-year-old adult woman is the height of moral evil, mostly from the same people who believe a 4-year-old can consent to gender change.

In the acclaimed HBO series The Last of Us, Pascal plays Joel, a character tasked with guarding Ellie (Ramsey), a young girl, as they make their way to safety in a dystopian society where those who have been infected by a fungus turn aggressive in an effort to spread it. The age difference between Joel and Ellie makes his father-figure position towards her even more obvious.
Some Twitter users compared the age difference between DiCaprio and Polani to that between Pascal and Ramsey, labeling the latter as “gross” and “awkward.” Polani and DiCaprio were seen together last week at the EP release party for Ebony Riley. He was previously romantically associated with Victoria Lamas, a 23-year-old model, with whom he was last seen out in public in December.

However, DiCaprio has shut down these rumors. A source confirmed to TMZ that the actor and Polani just happened to sit next to each other at the party. But just because they were seen hanging in the same group did not mean that both of them were dating each other.
Since ending his relationship with 25-year-old Camila Morronelast year after four years together the Titanic actor has been linked to multiple women including Gigi Hadid and 23-year-old actress Victoria Lamas.
