While promoting her new movie Mickey and the Bear, Camila Morrone opened up about the 23 year age gap between her and boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio.
The 22 year old actress spoke with The Los Angeles Times, where she was asked about her relationship with the 45 year old DiCaprio, who have been dating since late 2017.
While many thought her July Instagram snap of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart (who had a 25 year age gap) was a clap back at haters of her relationship, she insisted it was just because she loves 'classic Hollywood' though she admits people judging her relationship does bother her.

'There's so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps,' Morrone said. 'I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.'
The actress did concede that she understands why her relationship has garnered the interest of so many, adding, 'I probably would be curious about it too.'
Still, she hopes that as her career as an actress will continue to grow to a point where she isn't only mentioned as Leonardo DiCaprio's boyfriend.
