- Zendaya hides her face as Emmy host Kenan Thompson jokes about her being ‘too old’ to date Leonardo DiCaprio
- Leonardo DiCaprio is said to have broken up with his girlfriend of four years, Camila Morrone
- Zendaya had a successful Emmy 2022 as she created history
26 year old Emmy award winner Zendaya had the time of her life at Emmy 2022, not only she was slaying in her black floor-length gown but also created history by becoming the only black artist to win actress in a lead role in a drama series award twice for her role in HBO’s Euphoria.
However, things took an awkward turn when she became the center piece of the joke from Emmy’s host Kenan Thompson. Though the joke was more on Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, it did involve Zendaya.
At one point during his monologue at the Emmy, Kenan took a shot at Leonardo and his dating life when he joked about the age of his partners, stating how the talented and lovely Zendaya could never be on his radar since she is too old for the Hollywood star.
Zendaya turned 26 on the 1st of September, and it is a running joke on the internet about how Leonardo does not date anyone who is above 25. The star himself is 47 years old.
