Last week, Leonardo DiCaprio’s supporters mocked the Hollywood star on social media after they correctly predicted that the actor would end his relationship with Camila Morrone due to his age, having split from her after she turned 25. years.
Now, Kristen Zang, who dated the protagonist of ‘Titanic’ when they were 20 years old, from 1995 to 1999, wrote an essay for People magazine in which she has spoken for the first time about their relationship and has responded to “criticism and comments anti age”.
“As for Leo and their latest breakup, who knows what happened. Maybe she really cared about him, but she was just ready for the next chapter, maybe it’s temporary, or maybe it’s none of our business, but can we Stop the anti-aging headlines and comments? But keep the funny memes coming, they’re stellar. Really.”
Although much has been made of the actor’s breakup with his ex-partner when she turned 25, the actress revealed that they broke up shortly after that age and acknowledges the irony.
“I visited Leo for long periods of time on various sets in different countries. I loved his friends and he loved mine. We were like one big happy family. Leo was a very sweet and caring boyfriend. We also went through difficult times, like all couples, and we broke up for a while in 1997 and then got back together. Then about four months after my 25th birthday (I know what you’re thinking) it was over for good.”
Kristen said she had gotten over her relationship with the movie star, but felt compelled to say something after seeing how his and Morrone’s latest split was covered up.
“Now, more than 20 years later, when I read the headlines and comments on the Internet saying that your most recent ex-girlfriend has ‘aged’ or is ‘too old for Leo at 25,’ please ( insert dramatic eye roll). I think we can and should do better. What kind of message is this sending to young people?”
The actress said that she married at 40, so she wanted to make it clear to readers that “it’s much better after 25.”
“As for me, I’m 48 (very old). I live in the Oregon countryside with my handsome husband, Shea, who is a builder and also happens to be younger than me (joke’s on you, Leo), my lovely rescue pooch, Harley Dee, and I own a locally sourced dog food company www.emmalouskitchen.com Turns out at 25 I was barely scratching the surface of life.”
