Katherine Ryan says she won’t stop calling out men like Leonardo DiCaprio.

Ryan, 39, is a Canadian comedian who is known for being outspoken on the lives of fellow celebrities.

She recently started calling out DiCaprio, 48, after it was alleged he was seeing 19-year-old model Eden Polana, as she felt their age gap was ‘creepy’.

And she’s now saying she’s become the ‘poster woman’ for calling out older men’s behaviour – particularly when it comes to dating.

In an interview with MailOnline, she jokes: “I have somehow become the poster woman for rallying against grown men, powerful men, famous men dating teenagers.

“I didn’t choose that life, that life chose me.”

Ryan goes on to say that she doesn’t think it’s ‘controversial’ to be sharing her thoughts on the matter and that she’s ‘happy’ to continue doing so.

The comic acknowledges that a lot of men find younger women more attractive, but says her goal isn’t to change the way men think – but to empower younger women.

“I’m basically Leonardo DiCaprio trying to get to as many young women as I can,” she jokingly says.

And while she has tried to do the right thing in calling this behaviour out, she has been trolled on social media for speaking out.

Ryan claims she ‘gets all these men’ in her DMs, who she receives a ton of ‘backlash’ from.

Ryan isn’t the only celebrity to have called out DiCaprio over his relationship history.

TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson shared her thoughts in her column for The Sun, and she said the whole controversy gives her the ‘creeps’.

“I know I’m not the only one who finds Leonardo DiCaprio’s pursuit of much younger women not just distasteful but also sickening,” she penned.

“The idea that I might date or, God forbid, be in a relationship with an 18 to 19-year-old man does not only feel wrong and counterintuitive, but just a step too far.

“Why would I want to be with a man so young? I’m afraid it gives me the creeps.”

Amid this, the former adult film star Mia Khalifa, 30, has branded the actor a ‘manchild’.

DiCaprio has faced criticism when it comes to his relationship, as many people have noticed that he only appears to date women who are 25 or younger.

The Titanic star broke up with model-turned-actress Camila Morrone last year, shortly after her 25th birthday.

The pair had been in a relationship for four years.

During this time, Morrone spoke to The Los Angeles Times and defended their age gap.

She told the outlet: “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.”
