Camila Morrone is an Argentinian-American actress and model. Despite having a whole catalog of runway walks and magazine covers as well as her body of work as an actress, Morrone became a household name due to her relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
As scandalous as any Hollywood relationship, the 25-year age gap in their relationship has caused a stir in the media, owing to Morrone’s overnight celebrity stardom.

“There’s so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2019-12-03/camila-morrone-mickey-and-the-bear
