What Sydney said

Sydney Sweeney says Leonardo DiCaprio is her first celebrity crush

In the video, Sydney says: “My first movie star crush was Leonardo DiCaprio. I think that was the first time I saw Leo in a film in Romeo + Juliet (1996). After that, I watched every other film he ever made. Titanic (1997), I loved him in that. Then I was allowed to work with him. I had to pinch myself, take in every possible moment while I was working with him, and try not to faint.”

Sydney shared screen space with Leonardo in Quentin Tarantino's 2019 historical dramedy Once Upon A Time…in Hollywood.

Twitter doesn't think they're happening

However, when one X user broke the news on the platform, others claimed that Sydney and Leo were an unlikely possibility due to the age factor. No, not because he's too old for her, but the other way around, as he's notorious for only dating women under 25.

One user joked: “Everyone googles his age.” Another wrote: “She's 26. Isn't that too old for him???” “Leo probably would have dated her five years ago,” a third posted. “Too old for him. Sorry girl but you JUST missed your window,” one user shared.

However, some users loved Sydney. One of them wrote: “Come on. He has to make an exception here.” “That's the signal the stallion of the century needed (laughter with tears in his eyes),” posted another. “Wait, he could make an exception… the dashboard should be newsworthy,” said a third.

Leonardo is currently dating 25-year-old model Vittoria Ceretti. Leonardo previously dated Camila Morrone for four years before splitting from Hadid in August 2022, shortly after her 25th birthday.

On the work front, Leonardo will be seen in Paul Thomas Anderson's next directorial. Sydney now has Echo Valley and Eden in the pipeline.
