Katherine Ryan has explained why she calls out older male stars for dating younger women, labelling them "gross" and "weird" – and vowing to always do so.
Katherine, 39, has been outspoken about her thoughts and opinions about older male celebrities dating women who are significantly younger than them.
In a new interview, the comedian has now said she's happy to be the 'poster woman' for hitting out at the men, because she hopes her comments will hit home with female teenagers and young adults.
Katherine said: "I don’t think it's controversial to say that’s gross or weird and I’m very happy to continue beating that drum for as long as it takes."
Speaking to the Daily Mail, she added: "I look out at my audience and I have people my age, I have couples but I also have a lot of teenagers so even if one of them hears what I’m saying and goes, 'Ew maybe that man is interested in me because he wants to boss me around or because women his age don’t talk to him, maybe I will give that a miss'."
She joked: "I’m basically Leonardo DiCaprio trying to get to as many young women as I can."
Katherine added that it's usually men who send her hate on the matter.
The star, who recently welcomed her third child, recently criticised Leonardo DiCaprio and James Argent for dating significantly younger partners.
While 48 year old Leo is undeniably most famous for his acting career, his dating history is also often in the spotlight – with fans previously figuring out that he's never publicly dated anyone aged over 25.
Last month, Leo was spotted with 19 year old Israeli model Eden Polani at Ebony Riley's release party for her new EP amid rumours that he is currently dating Victoria Lamas, 23.
Leo was reported to be dating Victoria after his August 2022 breakup with 25 year old Camila Morrone, who he had been dating for four years.
TOWIE star James, 34, is currently eight months into his relationship with 18-year old actress Stella Turian, who he met at a wedding in Mykonos last year.
When she found out about James's relationship last month, Katherine posted her reaction on her Instagram Story, sharing a video of herself looking straight into the camera with a stern look on her face as she cuddled baby daughter Fenna Grace.
She added the caption: "Me – a mother – finding out a 35 TOWIE star has an 18 year old girlfriend."
