Leonardo DiCaprio is a famous blonde actor in his early forties who happens to be single. He also likes to perpetuate the associated stereotypes with having those extremely distinctive features. Naturally, he only seems to date blonde supermodels in their early twenties; the dude doesn't even go for women in their early to mid twenties.
DiCaprio is promoting his latest film The Revenant across Europe — which he is highly expected to win an Oscar for — at worldwide premieres, the latest of which took place in Rome. People reports that a Roman fan supposedly wrote him a note and in thanks, Leo gave her a hug and a kiss on the cheek. It's a miracle. Okay, it's not a proper kiss, but it certainly is an improvement on his inclination to date way too young.
From stalking his Twitter feed, it appears he is both "woke and bae" — an internet double whammy — drawing attention to climate change, animal abuse, and indigenous people's rights. Leo just needs an equally woke and bae lady to come along to break the young blonde supermodel cycle.
