Leonardo DiCaprio is a huge Star Wars nerd — new information to me, but I feel that it checks out.

However, with that said, he did not, in fact, make his girlfriend sit through the entire franchise's movies, prompting her to call the experience the "worst date of my life."

Let me backtrack a little: Last night, a satire page on Twitter with the handle @LeCinephiles tweeted a fake breaking news story about the Don't Look Up star. It read, "BREAKING: Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriend, Camila Morrone details the 'worst date of my life' with the actor."

First, the 47-year-old A-lister is still presumably dating 24-year-old actor and model Camila Morrone.

They were first romantically linked back in 2017.

After the initial tweet from @LeCinephiles went viral, the account asked journalists to interview the star about the viral phenomenon.

By the looks of it on Twitter, both the real and fake Star Wars-themed stories seem to have elevated Leo's star status, as fans proclaimed their readiness for a marathon date.

  1. But tell me, if Leo HAD rented out a movie theater and made you watch Star Wars (yes, I'm talking all 12 films), how would you feel about the date?
