In his opening monologue at the 2020 Golden Globes, comedian and actor Ricky Gervais called out actor Leonardo DiCaprio with a joke about his habit of dating younger women, but it did not involve a reference to a recent Taylor Swift song that also mentions Leo by name.
"Leo DiCaprio attended the premiere [of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood] and by the end, his date was too old for him," joked the host as the camera cut to a laughing Leo. Leonardo's dating history has been a hot topic for years, as has the age of his girlfriends. His current partner, actor Camila Morrone, is 22 years old to Leo's 45, and he has previously dated everyone from supermodel Gisele Bündchen to Blake Lively; many have had a significant age difference with the respected actor.
Unfortunately, the camera did not also pan towards fellow Golden Globes attendee Taylor Alison Swift, who is at the awards because she's nominated for Best Original Song for her work in the movie Cats. Coincidentally, her Lover track "The Man" explicitly calls out Leo and his antics, plus the sexist double standards of the entertainment industry that she's faced since beginning her career.
"And they would toast to me, oh, let the players play / I'd be just like Leo in Saint Tropez," Taylor sings in the song. Unsurprisingly, the callout had fans going wild on Twitter, though Leo has yet to publicly acknowledge the song. Maybe next time!
