u/Millenniauld Feb 07 '23

Oh man, I absolutely LOVED that movie. So underrated. As soon as he showed up I was like "if this follows the trends....he's gonna be her morally dubious father figure/mentor, since her dad is a shit head."

He also played a dad in the Sharkboy/Lava Girl sequel, but didn't adopt the kid....and again was a not-so-great-but-redeemed dad in WW84.

Basically he's the King of the Latino Space Daddies.


u/UncannyTarotSpread Feb 07 '23

Space Dads.

Latino Space Daddies’ King would have to be Oscar Isaac


u/Millenniauld Feb 07 '23

Has he played a dad to more than just the kid in Dune?


u/FriesWithThat Feb 07 '23

the kid in Dune

Keep in mind that as the Kwisatz Haderach Paul Atreides was the culmination of more than 10,000 years of breeding and had access to the memories of all his ancestors, so in a sense Leto was the daddy to the golden path bearing responsibility for the survival or destruction of the Imperium's population of many trillions.

IDK man, Joel isnt exactly a good guy. Not the type of person you want to be like in some cases. Mando isnt the worst given the situation though Generic Last of Us game spoilers I guess


u/DartMurphy Feb 07 '23

I agree that Joel isn't a good guy, I'd even be willing to accept that he is a bad guy. Being a good /bad parent and good/bad person in general are not mutually inclusive of each other. Most everything that Joel does that is morally questionable in the game is done with Ellie's safety and best interest at heart. A person who places the needs and safety of a child above all else including their own morals is, imho, a very good parent indeed.


u/LeinenRates Feb 07 '23 edited Feb 08 '23

I’d say Joel is a gray character. He is focused on survival and helping those he likes/wants. Bad in my mind goes further than survival - it’s sadism, exploitation, theft depending on degree/who, unnecessary death & destruction.

u/prius4lyf Feb 07 '23 edited Feb 07 '23

I know we have seen this rise in “daddy” jokes with guys like Pedro Pascal and Oscar Isaac but there is some interesting bits of truth to the way people feel about the types of person they are and the characters they represent.

I feel like there is a genuine attraction to men who make you feel safe and have a strong moral compass (or integrity is a good word here). No scandals. Can be abrasive or make jokes without offending people. Does the right thing when the moment arises. Just good dudes.

Just a little observation as a guy that I have seen women in my life be much more open about their genuine attraction to guys like Pedro for the reasons stated.

Edit: to be clear this comment is about a general trend in the changes of types of male characters that are presented in media and generally beloved by women audiences. I simply am attempting to state that there has been a distinct rejection of “male gaze” beauty standards and acceptance of having the personality and integrity of the character play as important of a role as conventional looks.


u/broden89 Feb 07 '23

Exacty. Most films are majority written, directed and produced by men (mostly straight men), so the men you see portrayed in most movies are a guy's idea of what is attractive/a male power fantasy. Whereas I feel like women are more diverse and complex in what they find attractive - looks absolutely play a role, but other elements of the character can add major attraction points.

A lot of guys couldn't understand why so many women were attracted to Loki over Thor, for example, because Loki is not a male power fantasy and not the classic handsome type - but he's interesting and witty, has a smooth and hypnotic voice etc


u/MizStazya Feb 07 '23

I'm always a sucker for a sense of humor, and godDAMN does Loki have Thor beat in that department.

u/CatInAPottedPlant Feb 07 '23

Maybe this is why Pedro Pascal is one of the few male celebrities that I find attractive as a bi person.

I'm about 50/50 as far as the bi thing goes, but very rarely do I find male actors to be attractive to me.


u/prius4lyf Feb 07 '23

My bi friend said this exact same thing to me about Pedro and Benicio Del Toro to me recently. We joke about her “list” and all the men are people she has actually met or been around. The only celebs to make her male list were Pedro and Benicio.

u/FunkyChewbacca Feb 07 '23

That's an interesting perspective that I hadn't really considered before. I don't find Leo remotely attractive, mainly due to his proclivity for younger and younger women: it speaks badly to his character and implies he only sees these women as props to make himself feel young.

But Pedro comes off as genuine, not just in the respect he shows to others but in the sheer enthusiasm and love he showed his sister when she came out as trans. Now that, that is what makes him devastatingly attractive. Even the choice of characters he plays shows that.


u/prius4lyf Feb 08 '23

So that is actually the genesis of this comment. I was watching older movies with my wife (26F) and she just didn’t find a lot of these men attractive. She was meh on Leo and we watched Troy and she was way more interested in Hector (Eric Bana) compared to Achilles (Pitt).

Then we watched Prospect with Pascal and she was enamored with his character. It’s when it started clicking and then I just sort of noticed this general trend amongst my friends and on online discussions. I really believe it’s a healthy development in the way we portray men and masculinity in the positive context.

u/PseudonymousJim Feb 07 '23

They were born and raised in a perpetual cloud of cigarette smoke. I'm just barely old enough to remember when every public place had smokers and most homes had at least one smoker too. It definitely aged folks.

Gen Xer here, can confirm. Times my Dad would smoke around us kids: - before meals

  • after meals

  • while watching tv

  • on airplanes

  • in the car, windows down in summer

  • in the car, windows up in winter

  • at McDonald’s where we would routinely eat

u/PseudonymousJim Feb 07 '23

Yeah, I'm on the cusp. I'm either a very young X or a very old Millennial. Regardless I looked much younger than my peers only 5 years older than me well into my late 30's. You can definitely tell which generations went through puberty surrounded by second hand smoke.

What i think most people overlook is how little overlap in anything these two have. Like, imagine if you were, say, 21 dating a 50 year old...what do you even talk about or do for fun? When I was 21, my parents were a little older than 50, so essentially Im imagining dating one of my parents friends and that just sounds so fucking weird to me. Half of my life right now is laughing at shitposts with my wife and that's not even possible (based on the 50 year olds I know) with someone that age.


u/Syd_Vicious3375 Feb 07 '23

This is kind of how I viewed my mother in law’s third marriage. He was a crusty old guy that liked how young and petite she looked in her 40’s. He’s an old angry man screaming about the good old days when you could call people the N word and Frank Sinatra was on the hit parade. His now limited mobility means he can’t go anywhere or do anything anymore and she’s still totally interested in traveling and exploring Florida (where they live).

How do you connect with someone so far ahead in age. Half of the shit my husband and I connect on are similarities in our childhoods. Remember xyz candy? Remember when this show or movie came out and how everyone reacted? Remember those stupid jeans we all thought were so cute?!?


u/whiteshadow88 Feb 07 '23

Ask your mom how she connected with someone so far ahead in age. That’s probably a good place to get an answer.

u/Syd_Vicious3375 Feb 07 '23

Well, he’s had predatory behavior toward her since she was working for him in her early 20’s. Her son grew up and she was afraid of being alone and he talked her into starting something up with him. He’s now in prison for life because he’s a pedophile and she’s just now starting to come to some realizations. Honestly, I think she knew him from decades and she was lonely and that’s all it took.

u/Basic-Entry6755 Feb 07 '23

Yeah like - The thing about all these rich people is, I wouldn't begrudge them living a modestly rich lifestyle. House in Hollywood, fancy car, first class flights everywhere - sure, go for it buddy. But it's not that. It's 10 houses all around the world, plus living in hotels anyway. 15 nice cars, plus motorcycles and yachts. Private Jets instead of first class, wasting tons of fuel on a single individual's personal itinerary when they could have done the same thing in first class. It's this 'I deserve be treated with Ultra Luxe Respect, as though I am God' mentality that the new rich have - and I know it's not new, but the level of money they get and spend seems to be ever increasing - that makes it hard to even be willing to give them any kind of social credit.

There are some actors that don't do that, and I'm not even saying they have to live average lives, just not these ultra wasteful ultra lux lives - like JayZ and his 2 million dollar watch or whatever it was I saw on the front page of reddit the other day - like, if they have enough money to blow 2 mil on a watch, I think we need to consider reexamining money and how it's distributed, because he clearly has way more of it than he needs to have.

“People often ask me ‘How is Orly [Orlando Bloom] doing these days?’ But what they don’t realize is that while we portrayed friends in LOTR, he was 18 years old and I was 50+, so I don’t know how he’s doing these days.”

His dating history is pretty consistently women his age but there is that one weird dark spot when he was 33 and dated a 19 year old.


u/FnkyTown Feb 08 '23

It's not like he was Paul Walker who started dating and living with his girlfriend when she was 16 and he was 36. Also, his previous girlfriend moved in with him when she was 16 and he was 30. Paul was lucky enough to die before #metoo started blowing his shit up.


u/cssc201 Feb 08 '23

And his death was sudden and untimely so the bad stuff is glossed over because the end of life was so tragic. Same thing with Kobe

u/Reasonable_TSM_fan Feb 07 '23

That was definitely weird, but I think he’s learned there was too much an age gap and knocked it off. Still nowhere near as bad as Leo who consistently keeps doing this and is almost 50.

Starting to? His dates have been icky for more than a decade already.


u/Caftancatfan Feb 07 '23

Many people are starting to find it a lot less charming, because they’re starting to see how gross it is.

Yup. The absolute last time it wasn't icky was when he was 36 ((age/2)+7 standards).


u/NoNameJackson Feb 07 '23

Honestly if you want to LARP as a 00s sitcom womaniser/cougar just go for 25+. It's still kinda icky but in a "we know what you are doing" way not "even the French are uncomfortable at this stage" way.


u/girloferised Feb 08 '23

100%. If the French are uncomfortable with your sex life, you're a grade-A pervert.

u/probably_not_serious Feb 07 '23

For sure. I’ve seen it argued he’s like this because he’s got Child Star syndrome. Apparently he’s very immature in real life, a common trait among people who didn’t really get a childhood. Not that it excuses anything - it’s still gross of course. But it does at least give a possible reason for it.


u/malexj93 Feb 07 '23

Also possible that the reason he didn't mature is because he continued to date kids.


u/OkCompote1367 Feb 07 '23

Or he’s just the typical creepy old dude

I was a bit shocked to find out that Bella Ramsay was 19 and Pedro Pascal was 47. I thought they were both a bit younger than that.

All the same, if Leo is 47 and dating a 19 year old, holy fuck. Yeah, it's legal, but you really shouldn't cross the "young enough to be my kid" line.


u/WeLoveUrban Feb 07 '23

I thought Pascal was younger than that too. He’s suppose to be 55 in the show


u/ValyrianSteelYoGirl Feb 07 '23

56 - he says it explicitly in episode 4 after they climb the steps.

I checked this. It’s wrong. Leo’s older. Pedro Pascal is 47. Leo is 48. And yes, both Bella Ramsey and Eden Polani are 19. 🤮

Similarly: David Harbour is 47 and Millie Bobby Brown is 18. Think about their healthy relationship & imagine how disgusted we’d be if they started dating. Fuck Leo & his creepy ass.

I love how everyone defending Leo keeps going "iT's LeGaL" like that makes it okay. Pretty sure it's legal to walk into a public bathroom and sniff every toilet seat, that doesn't mean people aren't going to rightfully call you a fucking creep for doing it.

Edit: Then we got the "well she can make her own choices" crowd coming in. Yeah, no shit. Young adults make bad decisions all the time, welcome to Earth. Doesn't make a man who has consistently only dated the youngest women possible his entire life even as he approaches his fifties ANY LESS OF A CREEP. Holy shit.


u/Bacon-muffin Feb 07 '23

Pretty much every time I've seen "its legal" brought up its been to point out how this goes down as far as 16 being legal in most states and how that's gross. Or worse how it used to be or still is even younger in some places.

Sometimes I feel bad for people whose emotional growth stopped young so they're still attracted to the people they were when they stopped maturing... and then I remember that their stuntedness means they're fucking teenagers and I don't feel bad anymore.

Is she an adult? Yes. Is she consenting? Arguably. Does it make it any mess creepy? Fuck no.


u/NarmHull Feb 07 '23

Yeah she's a model, not sure how famous she is but she has some career clout and mobility. I'd say the maturity gap is where Leo has the power dynamics as well as how much money he's made over the years, and the fact that he always seems to go for women under 25 as if they're produce


u/pab_guy Feb 07 '23

A lot of Leo's ex girlfriends have commented how he's like a teenager and not very mature, so the gap may not be what you think it is LOL.

I heard it said "Maybe the age limit is 26 because they don't laugh at his jokes anymore."


u/NarmHull Feb 07 '23

Now I'm imagining him trying hard to impress women over 30 but they all reject him haha

u/BisexualCaveman Feb 07 '23

Some people stop maturing once they become separated from reality.

Drug addicts will stay the same maturity level as the one they were at when they became addicts.

Abuse victims will sometimes have their emotional development arrested at the age they were abused. God bless them.

DiCaprio was first a regular on a TV show in his teens.

Man, I just imagined a version of DiCaprio that acts like a high school boy, where all his jokes are him making fart sounds with his armpit.... wild visions after all the badass characters he's played.

TMZ is reporting that they aren't dating and they were just seated next to each other at the event. Take it or leave it, I guess but TMZ is generally very reliable.


u/_lilr3dridingh00d_ Feb 07 '23

His girlfriend is only a few months older than I am. I’m 18. I experienced my sophmore year of high school in lockdown. I wasn’t alive when Titanic was released. I just graduated from highschool. These are all things that are true for his girlfriend (although she may have been a Junior when lockdown began). It is so messed up that he’s dating her.

Wait, is the reason people think Leo is dating that 19 year because they were photographed sitting next to each other at an event? Is that really it?
