Morrone hinted her independence stems from growing up in separate households with divorced parents. But that doesn’t mean Morrone doesn’t envision a happily ever after for herself. “I think the illusion of parents staying together for the rest of my life, at a very young age, went away [but] I do still believe in fairytales and living happily ever after so I would definitely want that for myself.”
In addition, Morrone adds, she’d love a “big household, lots of kids and being able to balance a career and a family because I think you can … Growing up as an only child of divorced parents I always missed that big family element and having people at your house and siblings.”
Being thrust into the public eye thanks to her relationship with DiCaprio – and their 22-year age gap – Morrone concedes that at times she has to simply ignore the opinions of strangers.
“I try to not read things because I never end up with a smile on my face. As a human I think that these things do affect you whether you acknowledge them or not.”
Opening up about what she envisions for her future, Morrone tells WHO: “Maybe not a long list of kids, maybe a short list of kids and a long list of movies … have a husband and have kids and be a huge actor and have a life.”
