Ulrika Jonsson says Leonardo DiCaprio 'gives her the creeps' as she slams teen model romance
'I’m afraid it gives me the creeps.'
Presenter Ulrika Johnson has called claims that Leonardo DiCaprio is dating a teenager "sickening" and says the A-listers' romantic life "gives her the creeps".
The 55-year-old has slammed Leo as news reports this week linked him with 19-year-old model Eden Polani, who is 29 years his junior and was -7 when Titanic came out. Kathryn Ryan has also spoken out, calling the star's dating life "creepy".
Writing in her column in The Sun, Ulrika said she disapproves of the 48-year-old dating a teen, saying the rumoured relationship is "sickening" and "gives me the creeps".
Leo has a reputation for dating younger women and ditching them before they hit 25. In fact, he has never publicly dated anyone older than that.
The actor split up with his long-term model girlfriend Camila Morrone last summer, just after her 25th birthday.
The couple had been together for four years, and fans were already growing concerned for the future of their relationship the day Morrone turned 25. Lo and behold, the couple broke up just months after her birthday.

Since the breakup, Leo has been spotted out with 27-year-old Gigi Hadid as well as other younger women, and most recently with Eden. The pair were seen together at the release party for Ebony Riley's new EP.
Leo has reportedly denied any rumours the outing was romantic. Ulrika, who is seven years older than Leo, said she wouldn't want to date a teenager.
"I know I’m not the only one who finds Leonardo DiCaprio’s pursuit of much younger women not just distasteful but also sickening.
"While I understand the glitz and glamour of a Hollywood star must be irresistible, it’s unfathomable that someone so young could consider spending her formative adult years with a man who is old enough to be her father.
"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. I’m afraid it gives me the creeps."
