This comes after DiCaprio and his girlfriend of four years, Camila Morrone, reportedly split right after she turned 25.
The two were first romantically linked in 2018 while at a New Year’s Eve party and made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2020 Academy Awards.
Over the years, DiCaprio has become notorious for not dating women older than 25, despite ageing into the late 40s himself. So much so that fans and other celebrities have mocked DiCaprio when his relationship with Morrone ended after she turned 25 this year.
Warwick has joined the clan of celebrities, commenting: “I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprio’s 25 year rule. His loss.”
“You don’t know what you’re missing,” she tweeted on Tuesday (13 September).
For the last 23 years, reports have shown DiCaprio’s dating life has seemingly followed a strict pattern: meet a woman in her early twenties, date her for several months or years, then break up with her before, or just after, she reaches 25.
I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprio’s 25 year rule. His loss. You don’t know what you’re missing.

Many social media users took to Twitter to comment on the Don’t Look Up star’s dating “phenomenon” that seems destined to repeat itself.
“There’s no phenomenon on this planet more reliable than Leonardo DiCaprio breaking up with his girl by age 25, the stats are breathtaking,” one user wrote.
A third said: “We joke about Leonardo DiCaprio only dating women under 25 but it’s actually astonishing how firmly he sticks to that rule.”
Some users, however, have pointed to the actor’s dating life being problematic.
“I really don’t like how people are just normalising the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio leaves women so easily after they turn 25,” said one user.
“Interesting how Leonardo DiCaprio has spotted a sweet problematic space between the debate of what’s ethical and what’s moral. That sweet space is a unfailingly a 22-year-old model,” added another.
