Ever since you were a high school student, you’ve probably noticed an interesting phenomenon – girls from your class were dating older guys. This left you outraged and wondering: “Why are they all interested in these older douchebags!!?! The question still remains unanswered. It seems that, since the dawn of time, women have had a thing for men older than themselves. Maybe it’s the way nature intended it to be. A stronger, more capable guy will protect and provide well for her and their young ones. Or, maybe, it’s just a product of modern society. Older men usually have more money, intelligence and experience, and that draws women. Which theory is correct, we’ll never know. All we can be sure is that it’s real. Every guy knows this, including the rich and famous ones. So, since their lifestyles are already extravagant and fulfilling, some of the celebrity men have decided to kick their dating game up a notch – by “acquiring” women young enough to be their daughters. Because…why not?!?! Age is just a number, right? We’re sure that many of these relationships are based on love and sincere affection, and others, well, let’s say dating a millionaire has its perks. Anyways, men, we are sure that you wouldn’t mind being in the position of these guys, and girls, many of you would find it hard to resist an offer like this. Let’s find which guys married WAY younger women.
11. George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin
Age gap: 17 years
Even though some people claim that George Clooney was born with grey hair, that hasn’t stopped him from becoming one of the biggest Hollywood heartthrobs of all times. Yup, he’s done it all from Batman to E.R. surgeon, this acclaimed actor has cemented his way as one of the greatest of all time. After a few high-profile relationships, George has (finally?) settled down with a British lawyer Amal Alamuddin. He’s been found guilty of being in love – yes, the great one has fallen! Even though some evil journalists claimed that Amal’s mother didn’t approve of their marriage due to religious reasons, the couple dismissed these allegations.
10. Nicolas Cage & Alice Kim
Age gap: 20 years
It seems that Ghost Rider has an appreciation for the oriental. After two failed marriages, it seems that third time’s the charm. Nicolas Cage met Kim in 2004, a former waitress in several clubs and bars in L.A., and she was instantly trapped. She still remains in the “Cage” (pun intended). The couple has been together since and have a son named Kal-El (that’s Superman’s birth name). I guess they came up with the name on their honeymoon on planet Krypton. The 20 year age difference doesn’t seem to bother these two lovebirds who are as happy as ever.
9. Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart
Age gap: 22 years
Han Solo is not solo. Yup, Indiana Jones has found his hidden treasure. Harrison Ford was an old school heartthrob and she was a young, unsuspecting Ally McBeal star. They met in 2002 and sealed the deal in 2009 with their wedding. Even though Flockhart is 22 years younger, she says that sometimes she feels a lot older than Harrison. We’re sure that his unbelievable charisma and macho-ism are the reason Ally fell for him. Ford survived a plane crash recently (he is a pilot), and admitted that his wife helped him to overcome the trauma of the crash.
8. Sylvester Stallone & Jennifer Flavin
Age gap: 22 years
This is without a doubt another great celebrity love story. Or at least, one of the longest lasting ones. Rocky, Rambo, the ultimate macho strong guy, Stallone overcame many adversities, but he was just too weak for this lady’s charms. Jennifer Flavin is a former model and currently a successful entrepreneur. Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer met in 1988 at a restaurant in Beverly Hills. The couple married nine years later and so far have three kids. They currently reside in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Beverly Crest. Well, we suppose that the 22 years younger wife is one of the reasons Sly stayed in amazing shape until this day.
7. Kevin Costner & Christine Baumgartner
Age gap: 22 years
Kevin and Christine met in 2000. We’re not sure where, but it was probably somewhere nice. They got married four years later in Costner’s ranch in Aspen, Colorado, when he was 49 and she was only 27. After 11 years of marriage and three kids, this couple is still looking fresh. Christine, a model and handbag designer, makes sure that they look stylish and slick everywhere they go. They’re frequently seen exchanging kisses and they always bring their kids along on their trips. This is Kevin’s second marriage, and so far he has fathered 7 children. Way to go, Kev!
6. Johnny Depp & Amber Heard
Age gap: 23 years
Mr. Johnny Depp has been accused of being a vampire – the guy just doesn’t seem to age! So, no one can blame Ms. Hear for falling for this absolute legend. After the unsuspected end of his 14-year long relationship with Vanessa Paradis, it seems that Captain Jack Sparrow has found a new ship to sail, Charlie got himself a new chocolate factory, Edward Scissorhands…ok, ok, you get the point! Amber Heard and Johnny met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2012, and got married in 2015. It looks like Heard, who is bisexual, just couldn’t resist Depp’s charisma. Who could!?
5. Bruce Willis & Emma Heming
Age gap: 24 years
After Bruce had ex-wife Demi Moore snatched by a way younger hottie Ashton Kutcher, he decided to give Demi a taste of her own medicine. He seduced a 24-year younger model and actress Emma Heming, and he didn’t hold back from showing her off to the ever-curious, public eye. The two met in 2008 through a mutual friend, and proceeded to get married only a year later. Since the beginning of their marriage, the couple has “produced” two daughters, and formed a “Die Hard” happy family. Emma is well known for being a Victoria’s Secret model, and that’s probably why Bruce claims that she is “the one”.
4. Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones
Age gap: 25 years
This is probably the most famous and long lasting, big-age-difference marriage. If there is a celebrity couple in which money doesn’t play the main role – this might be it. Out of all the guys in the world this Welsh beauty chose a 25 year older man. This means that there must be a lot of chemistry in their relationship. They got married in 2000, and now have two children. In recent years the couple has had some hard times, they even split up for a few months in 2013, but, they persevered. Now they’re supporting each other in ongoing health battles. If that’s not inspirational I don’t know what is.
3. Alec Baldwin & Hilaria Thomas
Age gap: 26 years
Who knew that Alec Baldwin likes yoga? He likes it so much that he actually “wifed” a yoga instructor! Hilaria shared a hilarious (get it?) story with the media. She said that Baldwin didn’t kiss her for the first six weeks since their first meeting. It was a slow start, but six months later the couple moved in together and the rest is history. They got married in 2012 at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York City and now have two wonderful kids. Thomas claims that Baldwin is an excellent father, since he practiced his parenting skills on his first daughter, Ireland Baldwin.
2. Jeff Goldblum & Emilie Livingston
Age gap: 30 years
Jeff is 63 years old, and no one can deny that he’s still looking pretty admirable. His wife Emilie, is 33, and she’s…well looking way younger than him. She is a former Olympic gymnast, and she has finally won a Gold (blum) medal. In this marriage, looks and age are not important. Livingston gave birth to their first child when she was 32. Ironically, Jeff Goldblum was 30 when Emilie was born. And to add to the irony, their son was born on Independence Day, which is also the name of one of Jeff’s most famous movies. The couple is happy and frequently exchanges love notes on social media.
1. Clint Eastwood & Dina Ruiz
Age gap: 35 years
Here it is folks. The absolute winner of our list. The Good, the Bad, The…Divorced? Yes dear readers, after a 17 year run (1996-2013) this marriage unfortunately, ended. But still, this ex-couple holds the title for the biggest age gap relationship in the celebrity world so far. Despite their separation, Dina claims that Clint is “the sweetest guy ever, kind and loving”, as well as “that he hasn’t done anything wrong”. The couple have one daughter, Morgan Eastwood, born in 1996. She remains with her mother and Mr. Eastwood, from what we’ve heard, has already moved on with another lady.
