Ulrika Jonsson says that Leonardo DiCaprio’s dating controversy has given her the ‘creeps’.

The Oscar-winning actor, 48, has garnered a reputation for dating younger women and seemingly dumping them once they turn 25.

He has been pictured recently with 19-year-old Israeli model Eden Polani at a release party for Ebony Riley’s new EP.

This has led to him receiving a ton of backlash, and now Jonsson is offering her opinion on the situation.

In her column for The Sun, she describes the Titanic star’s relationships with younger women as ‘sickening’.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star writes: “I know I’m not the only one who finds Leonardo DiCaprio’s pursuit of much younger women not just distasteful but also sickening.

“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.”

The TV presenter isn’t the only celebrity to publicly call out DiCaprio over his relationships.

Comedian Katherine Ryan branded The Wolf of Wall Street star ‘creepy’ during a Twitter exchange with his fans.

The 8 out of 10 Cats panellist retweeted a post from the director of the Right to Equality campaign, Dr Charlotte Proudman.

The tweet reads: “Not enough people are talking about Leonardo DiCaprio who is almost 50 ‘getting close’ to a 19-year-old teenage girl.”

This led to Ryan commenting: “This is literally all I’ve talked about for SEVEN YEARS.”

When asked by a commenter what the ‘crime’ was, since DiCaprio and Polani are both ‘adults’, the comic replied: “No crime, just a creepy pattern.”

She then joked: “This year, Titanic became too old for Leonardo DiCaprio to be in it.”

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

They also realised that he dumps them as soon as they turn 25.

Last year, the Inception star broke up with model-turned-actress Camila Morrone shortly after her 25th birthday, after she publicly defended their relationship.

When the pair were together, she told The Los Angeles Times that age wasn’t an issue and doesn’t matter.

Morrone 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.”

Since the breakup, DiCaprio has been linked to both Polani and model Gigi Hadid, 27.
