Camila recently put up an Instagram post that many thought was her response to criticism of her relationship with Leo. She says it wasn’t actually her intention for the post to be a clap back, but she did acknowledge that she’s bothered by judgment from the media.

“There’s so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps,” Camila told the Los Angeles Times. “I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

“I probably would be curious about it too,” she added, admitting that she understands why people are interested in her relationship.

“I think more and more now that people are seeing the film, I’m slowly getting an identity outside of that,” she said. “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.”
