In July 2019, Camila posted a series of black-and-white photos of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart on Instagram, captioning the photos, "A love like this." As the two Old Hollywood actors notoriously had a 25-year age gap, fans were quick to make the connection to Camila's own 23-year age gap with Leo. She later took to her Instagram Story to defend her relationship against trolls. "I just read some of the comments on my Instagram and my god, people are so mean," she said. "And, like, full of anger for people they know nothing about. I guess I just hope on this Friday that people learn to live with a little less hatred and place their time and interest elsewhere because living without hatred feels pretty good."
A few days before she posted the photos, People reported that their relationship was anything but casual. "Camila spends a lot of time at his house," the source claimed, later adding, "Camila is long known as Leo's girlfriend. And Leo introduced her to both of his parents long ago." In early August, Camila and Leo took another PDA-filled trip to Positano, Italy, further proving how crazy they were about each other.
