Leonardo DiCaprio, 45, goes public with girlfriend Camila Morrone, 22, for first time in two years

Hollywood has seen its fair share of age-gap relationships, and one man who is better known than most for his significantly younger beaus is Leonardo DiCaprio.

Now, the 45-year-old has gone public at the Oscars with his 22-year-old girlfriend, Camila Morrone, after two years of dating.

Ricky Gervais roasts Leonardo DiCaprio for dating significantly younger women: 

One Twitter user shared a video of a beaming Morrone sitting in between DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, writing: "Camila Morrone is sitting between Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, god really has favorites."

Watch it below: 

DiCaprio brought his mom to his last Oscars ceremony, and fans took to social media to express their delight that he chose his girlfriend of two years this time, who, despite their age gap, he appears to be getting increasingly serious with.

One wrote: "Leo DiCaprio coming with his girlfriend Camila Morrone instead of his mom already made my day! #Oscars"

A second remarked: "Camila and Leo together at the #oscars omg i'm screaming [sic]."

A third added: "Leo and camila im crying [sic]."

However, while DiCaprio's decision to bring Morrone to the Oscars was a huge public statement about the status of their relationship, the pair did not walk the red carpet together and arrived separately, minutes apart.

Speaking about her relationship with DiCaprio, Morrone, who is also an actress, hopes to be recognized for her work in her own right and not because of her relationship with the A-lister.

While promoting her movie Mickey and the Bear, she told the Los Angeles Times: "I think more and more now that people are seeing the film, I'm slowly getting an identity outside of that, which is frustrating because I feel like there should always be an identity besides who you're dating ... I understand the association, but I'm confident that will continue to slip away and be less of a conversation."
