Kenan Thompson joked on Monday night during his opening monologue as the host of the 2022 Emmy Awards, during which he made a satirical dig at actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
The comedian said, “Zendaya just turned 26 last week; happy birthday. 26 is a weird age in Hollywood. I mean, you are young enough to play a high school student but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio.”
This is the second time that Zendaya has won the Emmy in the category of outstanding lead actress in a drama series, which is the award for the actress’ portrayal of Rue, a high school student, in the show “Euphoria.”
The first time the 26-years-old actress won the award was in 2020.
DiCaprio, the actor who played Jack in the film Titanic, was not in attendance at the Emmys this year.
As we know from history, the 47-years-old actor has received considerable recognition for being involved in relationships with well-known women much younger than him.
In response to that trend, there has been an explosion of jokes and memes in the social media world.
Based on his history, many of these jokes imply that Leonardo DiCaprio breaks up with his girlfriends as soon as they turn 25.
According to the reports, DiCaprio and Camila Morrone, his girlfriend of four years, recently broke up just months after Morrone celebrated her 25th birthday in June.
