Leonardo DiCaprio and his widely publicized dating history fell victim to the sharp tongue of… SpongeBob SquarePants.

The Hollywood icon, 49, was photographed enjoying this year's Super Bowl LVIII, which saw the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime to win their third Super Bowl in five years.

“Leonardo DiCaprio, 25 years old – that’s his dating story,” he joked as the camera panned to show the actor with his friend Tobey Maguire.
