    During his time on stage, Kenan Thompson had set some time to discuss the dating life of the 47-year- old actor Leonardo Dicaprio. It was recently that the ‘The Revenant‘ actor broke up with his girlfriend of four years, Camila Morrone, who that just turned 25. With the breakup, the actor has been called out for dating only women under the age of 25.

    Obviously, Kenan did not want to miss his chance to troll on a hot topic in Hollywood. Thus he took to Zendaya, who celebrated her 26th birthday over a week ago. “Zendaya just turned 26. 26 is a weird age in Hollywood. Young enough to play a high school student, but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio,” Kenan remarked. The crowd laughed while Zendaya covered her smiling face away from the camera panning towards her.
