“Now over 20 years later when I read the headlines and online comments with his most recent ex girlfriend being referred to as having “aged out” or being “too old for Leo at 25,” puh-lease. I think we can and should do better. What kind of message is this sending to young people?” the actress said to PEOPLE, calling the actor an ageist.
