Camila Morrone is not interested in what people think about her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio.

On Friday, the model, 22, was inspired to speak out in a video on her Instagram Stories after receiving a number of hateful comments regarding her relationship with DiCaprio, 44, on her post from one day earlier.

Sharing a series of black-and-white photos of the late Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart on Thursday, Morrone wrote, “A love like this” beneath the candid shots.

Like Morrone and DiCaprio, the iconic Hollywood couple had more than a 20-year age gap between them, but stayed together despite the criticism. In their controversial 13 years together, the famous pair married and welcomed two kids, before Bogart sadly passed from esophageal cancer in 1957.

Fans were quick to pick up on the parallel between the two couples and some began to criticize Morrone and DiCaprio for their relationship in the comments section, going as far to say that the actor “only cares about your body,” and would “dump you in three years.”

Others slammed Morrone personally and claimed that the only reason she was dating DiCaprio was so she could “live off of him.”

Morrone eventually had enough of the negative comments and opened up in a video on her Stories, where she set the record straight about her relationship.

“Good morning, people, and Happy Friday,” she began. “I just read some of the comments on my Instagram and my God, people are so mean and full of anger with people that they know nothing about.”

“I guess I just hope on this Friday that people learn to live with a little less hatred,” she continued. “And place their time and interests elsewhere because living without hatred feels pretty good.”
