Katherine Ryan labelled Leonardo Di Caprio creepy on Twitter on Monday over his rumoured romance with model Eden Polani, 19.
After the news broke about the actor, 48, who has a penchant for dating women under 25, she posted a series of bemused tweets about him.
When one fan asked the comedian what the ‘crime’ was because Leo and Eden are both adults, she replied: ‘No crime just a creepy pattern.’
It came after she quote-tweeted a post which said: ‘Not enough people are talking about Leonardo DiCaprio who is almost 50- and “getting close” to a 19 year old teenage girl’ and replied: ‘This is literally all I’ve talked about for SEVEN YEARS.’
She also wrote ‘uh huh’ in response to a separate tweet which read: ‘the power dynamic of his age, his wealth, and his fame over a 19 year old girl is actually repulsive.’

Something to say: When one fan asked the comedian what the ‘crime’ was because Leo and Eden are both adults, she replied: ‘No crime just a creepy pattern,’ (Leo pictured with Eden)
The star also quipped: ‘This year, Titanic became too old for Leonardo DiCaprio to be in it’ after author Caitlin Moran wrote: I feel like he has Titantic trauma.
‘He’s dating women like he’s still the age he was when he shot it, and he’s ALWAYS on holiday on a yacht. Dude needs some EMDR.’
Twitter has gone wild with the news because Eden is so young that her high school education was interrupted by the Covid pandemic.
And moreover, she was not even born when Titanic was released back in 1998 – 25 years ago.
One person observed: ‘Kate Winslet was 22 when she was nominated for an Oscar for Titanic. Which is 3 years older than Leonardo DiCaprio’s current girlfriend.’
‘Leonardo DiCaprio’s new girlfriend wasn’t even born when Titanic was released.’
Others wrote about how she was in school when Leo was already an established movie actor.
‘DiCaprio’s girlfriend is so young she probably studied the Romeo and Juliet film he starred in when she was at school.’
Unimpressed: Katherine took to Twitter to agree with a number of tweets about Leo and his penchant for younger women
Another added: ‘Leonardo DiCaprio’s new girlfriend is so young that her high school education was interrupted by COVID-19, weirrrrrrrd.’
‘Someone please explain to me what a man nearing 50 has in common with *checks notes* a 19 year old?’
‘Somebody needs to stop leonardo dicaprio. It was funny 10 girlfriends ago.’
‘Leonardo DiCaprio is only worried about climate change because he wants to leave a better world for his girlfriends.
Fans noted: ‘Leonardo’s new girlfriend wasn’t even born when Titanic was released’ – the movie came out 25 years ago – six years before Eden was born
‘Somebody needs to stop him’: Twitter was awash with comments about Leonardo’s preference for young models
Leonardo was first pictured with Eden at Ebony Riley’s release party for her new EP.
The Oscar winner was spotted seated next to the teen Israeli model as they soaked up the atmosphere.
Seemingly missing from the event was Leo’s current girlfriend Victoria Lamas, who at 23 is 25 years his junior and almost half his age.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star was dressed in his standard casual ensemble, though he didn’t mask up as he sometimes does at public events.
He covered up with a simple black baseball cap, and he rocked a cool black bomber jacket over a nondescript black shirt while staying on theme with black jeans.
Eden – who bears a striking resemblance to Leo’s new flame – looked chic in a gray pinstripe suit, which she dressed down with a simple white blouse.
She added a thick gold chain around her throat for some extra sparkle, and she had her long red hair cascading down her shoulders.
The radiant redhead is signed to IT models and is also a social media star with 195,000 Instagram followers.
Leo could be seen showing off a soft smile next to Eden as he appeared to enjoy himself at the packed party.
It is unclear if he is still with Lamas, as he was apparently last seen in public with the model back in late December.
His more recent yacht outings have been with other women, and he more recently enjoyed a boys’ night out to watch the Los Angeles Lakers.
Lamas was well in line with his past girlfriends, all but one who have apparently been 25 years old or younger, except for the model Gigi Hadid, whom he briefly dated last year.
His latest string of short flings follows his August 2022 breakup with the model-turned-actress Camila Morrone, whom he had been dating for four years.

Leonardo was pictured getting close to Gigi Hadid at a party in New York City in September.
The pairing appeared to be the first time the Oscar winner has ever dated a woman older than 25, and Gigi would also be the first woman he has dated who is a mother.
The star has always hit headlines with his relationships, famously dating model Gisele Bundchen for five years starting when she was 18, to a five-year romance with Bar Refaeli that ended when she turned 25.
