Camila Morrone was Leo DiCaprio’s official Oscar date, dreams come true

Oscars 2020 Arrivals

Let’s take a moment to recognize the “girlfriends of the nominee” and how different they can be. Camila Morrone has been with Leonardo DiCaprio for two years. She’s 22 years old so she’s got three years before she ages out of the DiCaprio Girlfriend Experience and sorry, those are the rules. No one over 25, ever. Even though Camila is trying to make her acting career happen, she knew that she was only there as Leo’s plus-one. So she did whatever he wanted – he wanted to walk the carpet alone, so she did the carpet briefly and separately. They sat together in the front row, and she got placed in between Leo and Brad Pitt. She even got to wear a Carolina Herrera gown… but I guess Leo didn’t spring for hair and makeup people, because she looks like she just walked off the yacht and threw on this dress. All in all, she’s more official now so there you go.

The other “girlfriend of the nominee” is Rooney Mara. Rooney has been lowkey going to ALL of the awards shows to support Joaquin Phoenix, her boyfriend of several years and possibly even her fiance. He’s not demonstrative with her at all (much like Leo is not demonstrative with Camila), but the energy is completely different. I can tell that Joaquin adores Rooney and he flat-out NEEDS her there. So she comes out and continues to dress like a goth doll. This is McQueen and she looks absolutely miserable. But trust me, they’re both quite happy.

    Leo’s girlfriend is really really beautiful to me. Wow. She’s just lovely.

    Rooney is the walking embodiment of “uuuuuuuughhhhhh”.

    • SM says:

      Please do not talk about this girl as anything more that Leo’s current girl, who does not know what is is doing. He os so gross for continuing parading models under 25 as his girlfriends. You also know he cares about each of them as much as about previous and the next one. I also think that probably at this point he has no choice, no self aware woman with her firm grounding in the world would take up with him. So he goes for these young girls who are still impressed by his googly eyes.
      As for Rooney, I think she does have a very positive effect on Joaquin and despite looking like miserable ice queen of the goth kingdom, she seems quite happy and calm with him. So they make a good couple.

    • Mel says:

      I think Camila is beautiful too, and I actually liked her look. Very pretty and natural, nothing over the top. It suited her and the look suited the reason she was there.

    • Ellie says:

      I find her pretty but quite plain/regular. Like bang her hair in a ponytail and I’ve worked with 50 of her in various office jobs.

  2. MCV says:

    Imagine Camila being “the one” lmao

    • Biff says:

      Well, hes groomed her for over a decade so why not.

    • Rhos says:

      I really don’t get what is Leo’s deal – why so much fear of real relationship? Is he just plain immature?

      • Ded says:

        He’s closeted. The older he gets, the less well-known/obscure his beards get

      • omnibre says:

        I mean, for the many many years of rumors about him, much like with Clooney, no one’s even managed to get “proof” of a dozen different things everyone “knows”. Everyone “knows” he’s gay, or everyone “knows” he’s bi, or everyone “knows” this and that.

        It seems pretty obvious that he doesn’t want to get married, he likes being photographed with attractive women barely above the age of majority, and it didn’t stop him from his only goal (winning the Oscar) so no need to stop. He still wants leading man roles, he’s aging a bit strangely (like many men who were feminine-pretty at 24 do), and maybe he thinks it makes him remain leading-man-material. Or maybe they’re beards. Or maybe he has them donate pints of blood to bath in. Who knows. But the women (erm, girls) always seem to get what they want, and so does he.

      • minx says:

        If he doesn’t want to get married or even settle down, it’s his choice. I’d rather he do his thing than cycle through a bunch of marriages.

      • Rhos says:

        @minx, I’m not talking about getting married. I’m talking about never acting like you are in a relationship even when you have had a girlfriend for years. The whole avoiding of walking with her on the red carpet, or god forbid – holding hands! And wow, acting like sitting next to her at the Oscars is the biggest honor the girl can ever dream of and he is just doing her the biggest favor.
        He is just so weird.

      • Dayo says:

        I have no idea if Leo is gay, straight, or bi – but I have seen photos of him as a child actor with known industry pedos – he was probably passed around. Therefore, it seems logical to ‘date’ or whatever young women who are happy to ride his fame and not question any weirdness.

      • Moo says:

        Heard a vignette on an old Call Her Daddy podcast about some kind of yurt or structure he keeps in his backyard where he has sex with ladies. Obv cannot vouch for this but they say they know someone who had sex with him – reported rear entry position and she turned around and saw him wearing giant over-the-ear headphones rocking out.

  3. Gil says:

    The title killed me “dreams come true” XD

  4. Flamingo says:

    I think eventually Leo will pull a George Clooney and marry someone closer to his own age who has her own stuff locked down. Clooney was like 55 before he got married, so Leo still has a few years.

    • Leigh says:

      The Clooneys are only close in age in Hollywood years. There’s still a 17-year age difference but at least she was a fully formed adult….

      • josephine says:

        And a career woman with substantial education and a solid career. Not particularly a fan (I really dislike the tween looks she favors) but I do appreciate that she has a career and did not end that career just because she married a movie star.

    • Sean says:

      Did George marry someone closer to his age though? He’s 17 years older than Amal.

  5. Bella Mama says:

    Hate both dresses. Anyone who is with Leo disgusts me as much as he does

  6. Lucy says:

    There were several camera cuts to Roony through the ceremony and it surprised me how emotional she looked. Not in a depressive way, but like she was very moved.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      Yeah, she comes off as fairly normal in interviews. She just haaaaates the red carpet, and I don’t blame her. I would feel so awkward and self-conscious standing there being photographed for minutes at a time!

  7. Mireille says:

    Sigh. I get it. He needs to be seen with another young woman. For her, she’s more known now for being his girlfriend than being an upcoming actress in her own right. This story is getting tired. To each their own, I guess.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She’s been cast as a lead in Daisy Jones and The Six, so she definitely has the opportunity to break out in her own right.

  8. ChillyWilly says:

    So I had a sleepover with my mom last night and we watched the Oscars. When they showed Leo and Camilla in the audience I said “Aw, look Mom! That’s Leo’s daughter, isn’t she pretty? ” My mom (who doesn’t follow celebrity gossip) totally believed she was his daughter until I said “Yeah, no that’s his 22 year old girlfriend.”
    It’s embarrassing , Leo. You are a cliche, man!

  9. Becks1 says:

    I thought Camilla looked pretty last night, fairly low key but pretty.

    • josephine says:

      I thought so as well, perfect for the “plus one” category. I do wonder what she would have looked like with a low bun or a twist to the side but I thought she looked perfectly acceptable as is.

    • Meg says:

      Remember how low key gisele looked when she went to the oscars with him?
      He definitely doesnt want focus pulled from him

      • Yeahbutt says:

        Giselle was memorably styled when she was Leo’s + 1. She wore an off white empire waisted dress w THAT mermaid hair that became iconic. Remember everyone had newscaster blow outs until THAT hair? I wouldn’t say she was casual. She plugged long wavy beach hair onto the map. Now “not styled” will be a “thing” forever due to this years “casual +1”.

  10. Hmmm says:

    I’m out of the loop when it comes to Leo’s girlfriends. I thought he was dating a blonde 🤷🏽‍♀️

    • GreenTurtle says:

      Statistically speaking, it’s a good assumption. Just happens to be wrong this one instance, lol.

  11. Esme says:

    “she got placed in between Leo and Brad Pitt” – was she there as a human shield, so that Leo did not have to make small talk with Braaaad the whole evening?
    (Brad Pitt strikes me as a total bore, for some reason, while Leo seems a bit more intelligent and self contained)

  12. Laura says:

    I feel like Leo could have bought her a better dress+accessories+hair?

  13. Scarlett says:

    Snooozefest. So boring. At least Rooney and Phoenix are interesting/seem genuine.

  14. Lala11_7 says:

    I thought Rooney looked LOVELY…I thought the McQueen dress was spectacular…I love the details and the boldness of the cuts and the fabrics together…and I so OVERSTAND Rooney’s energy!!!

    Leo’s girlfriend (sigh)…needed more GLAMMA with the hair and makeup…a lovely up sweep with a beautiful reckless and a bit of dramatic makeup would have made a heck of a difference…

  15. Estelle says:

    The McQueen dress duality of racer back on top of the bra both in lace is just too busy.

    Camila Morrone is lovely.

  16. Anilehcim says:

    I think Camila is very pretty and as a former Leo stan (I was OBSESSED), I’m really grossed out by his behavior now that he is 45 years old. Not that I think his policy on dating was ever OK, but when you reach a certain age, you’re just creepy. I felt the same way about George Clooney, the guy who dated women he obviously deemed as beneath him so he could maintain complete power and control and if they stepped out of line they were immediately replaced–only to go off and marry a woman who is way too good for him bc he egotistically felt like he found his “match.” Spare me. I’m guessing Leo will go the same route someday.

    I’ve seen Joaquin and Rooney loved up but only in paparazzi shots.

  17. Normades says:

    Going official is the kiss of death for Leo’s girlfriends. I remember another Oscar date who wore white…Gisselle. I don’t think Camila will make it to 25. I give them 6 months tops.

    • Jegede says:

      🤔🤔

      Camilla was already Leo’s +1 at the Cannes film festival.

      She’s got outings on the 2 most famous red carpets in the world with Leo.

      She’s gotten more than of his exes at this point.

      • Emily says:

        I wonder off Camilla is getting better treatment than past girlfriends because she is the step-daughter of Al Pacino. If she wasn’t a “family friend” then Leo probably wouldn’t have brought her. It’s still creepy that he’s known her since she was a child.

      • Normades says:

        I think Kelly Rohrsomething got a good roll out too. Still give Camila 6 months.

      • Meg says:

        @Emily good point

  18. Blair Warner says:

    I was amazed to see her there … thought he would take his mom again!

  19. A says:

    I bet Camila is a role model for wannabe Insta models who are looking for a sugar daddy. Enjoy your time, sweetie. It’s only matter of time before you turn 25.

  20. Eleonor says:

    Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix are two persons that make a lot of sense together.
    Camilla…oh poor thing.

    • tealily says:

      Yes! Watching them next to each other, they just seem like such a real couple. I think they’re in it for the long haul.

    • Scal says:

      There was alot of behind the scenes shots of them getting ready, and rolling up to the oscar where they both seem so happy and into each other. She’s smiling! Like really smiling and it just lights up her face. I think the stern look is her go to for posing on the carpet.

      There’s one shot I saw of him looking at her further up the carpet and it was adorable which I never thought I’d say about Joaquin Phoenix. I think they are in it for the long haul to.

  21. Annetommy says:

    Clooney was in his fifties when he got married for the SECOND time . He was previously married to Talia Balsam when he was young. I can’t get too worked up about the age of Leo’s girlfriends, they know the deal, I doubt he’s promising them happy ever after. And grooming is a very loaded term to use and I do not know the evidence for that.

  22. February Pisces says:

    Leo clearly knew he want going to win, in fact I forgot he was even nominated. If he thought he was in with a chance, his mum would have been there no questions.

  23. Sass says:

    GD DAMB IT ROONEY KNOCK IT TF OFF

    Camilla is ok but dated in that dress.

    Leo is a real tool.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Yes,please tell Rooney that it’s all going to be alright,we know you underwent a makeover from basic east coast preppy circa 2010 to angry suffering gothic,but a smile won’t crack your face.

      • Sass says:

        She just looks so mad all the time. Maybe it’s the too tight topknot that she never takes down.

        I just can’t forget how much of a total a hole brat she was when she first came on the scene and I’ve had a bad taste in my mouth ever since.

  24. Mia says:

    Camilla is gorgeous. She is perfect as she is. She did not need a hair and makeup person. Let’s be real.

  25. Case says:

    I like that Rooney sticks with her goth-ness, even if I don’t always like the particular dresses she wears. She looks good in black with dark makeup, and it’s cool that she stays true to what she likes! (Signed, a goth. Lol)

  26. Sparky says:

    I think that a lot of the light colored dresses look so washed out and muted because of the white background. If there had been more of a contrast many would look much better.

  27. MariaS says:

    Rooney Mara would look a lot better without her hair scraped back so severely.

  28. bitchy architect says:

    i am here for Rooney’s Goth realness.

  29. Leah says:

    Next year, it will be an even younger model until Leo is 99 years old and is dating someone who’s great grandmother wasn’t even born when Titanic came out.

  30. David says:

    Rooney looks lovely. She and Joaquin are have a sincere and genuine energy together.

  31. Nina says:

    Joaquin and Rooney seem like an INTENSE couple. I get low-key anxious just looking at pictures of them together.

  32. BonnieT says:

    I follow Camila’s stylist on Instagram. He dresses others like Isla Fisher, Patricia Clarkson, Anna Camp, Sarah Silverman etc. So it’s not like he’s lacking In reputation with any decent Hollywood clientele. From what I’ve seen, he does tend to put her in certain pieces that elongate her torso, and yeah, her makeup and hair are usually understated (not necessarily always a bad thing) and/or lacking.

  33. Smalltown Girl says:

    Honestly, the picture of Joaquin and Rooney eating a burger together after the Oscars was cute and so was the way he Embraced her after they both walked the red carpet and then held her hand into the theatre.

  34. SJR says:

    Rooney looks like a skinnier version of Lily Collins to me. JPheonix looks like he needs a good shampooing, all the time. Just my opinions.

    I think the light dress on Leos friend looks like an expensive nightgown from the 40′s.
    I bet she doesn’t care about a long term relationship, she is young, living with a multi-millionaire, traveling, gets to go to the Oscars, etc. At 22, I would have happily have gone along with that program, I was working 60-70 hours a week at minimum wage. No tears for the gf of celebs, it not unloading trucks for 8 hours.

    Who was the woman with Clooney, the ex wrestler, Stacy something I think?
    She looked lovely, dressed well, smiled for the PR, when it was over she was fine and went on with things. God, I can not picture sitting at a breakfast table with either Leo, Clooney or Pitt. They are just SO full of themselves.

    • liriel says:

      To be honest I see your point. She’s a step daughter of another famous guy, Leo isn’t that bad looking and honestly I think for an actor he doesn’t sound dumb. Or overall. She is not wasting her youth but boosting a profile, living an interesting life with no worries.

  35. Lili says:

    Giselle looked like a goddess!
    I’m a bit angry that this year Leo deserved an oscar. He did great in a good movie. Instead he got an oscar because he was snubbed so many times for acting in some wierd movie. That sucks.

  36. GreenTurtle says:

    All I can see with that long, center-parted dark hair is Stevie from Schitt’s Creek.

  37. That crappy dress on Camila looks like underwear.

    • AMA1977 says:

      It’s a wedding dress. It;s from Carolina Herrera’s bridal line. Her stylist asked them to make it in “blush pink” and to emphasize the boning to obscure the fact that it’s bridal. Chica is bold, wearing a wedding dress to the Oscar’s as the date of one of Hollywood’s biggest commitmentphobes!!

  38. Eve says:

    I can’t stop staring at Camila Morrone’s armpit in the second picture (go ahead, zoom in).

  39. Valerie says:

    She’s only 22? I thought she was closer to the cutoff point. Not that she looks old, it just feels like they’ve been an item forever, which means he snapped her up pretty early. Ugh.

  40. Originaltessa says:

    Yeah, I was thinking something similar. Like aren’t we all so lovely at 22? She’s a child compared to him. I find it so inappropriate.

  41. Polyanna says:

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! It’s so true! To me she is very beautiful, and yes her youth of course helps 😂.

  42. Snappyfish says:

    Agree with Tessa. We are all lovely at that age. However he took Gisele to the Oscars & they broke up. It will be interesting to see if the trend continues

  43. omnibre says:

    She’s, you know, pretty. She’s one of those models that always reminds me of the prettiest girl in your high school year, or whatever. Which is not exactly something to sniff at.

    But I do wonder how, with that face and that body and access to his money, she ended up with a dress that doesn’t seem properly fitted and hair and make up that looks beyond “natural” and into “didn’t bother”.

  44. Carol says:

    I think she is drop dead gorgeous. She kind of reminds me of Charlotte Casiraghi.
