Age ain’t nothing but a number, baby. Well, that expression certainly holds true for these 10 famous couples with big age gaps. These celebrity relationships with large age differences prove that it really doesn’t matter how old you are when it comes to love. And we’re not just talking a few years difference. Some of these couples have huge age gaps of over 30 years. From pop stars and actors to politicians, these high profile people all have one thing in common: famous marriages with massive age gaps.
For the majority of couples on this list, it’s the man that’s the older party. But one couple bucks that trend, and that’s Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart. She might have three failed marriages behind her, but JLo hasn’t let that stop her looking for love again. And finding it in the young, hot arms of a backing dancer 18 years her junior. They are just one entry in our top 10 where the famous person has got together with an unknown after having been married to a big star. Alec Baldwin had been married to Kim Basinger (and he was actually the younger one in that relationship), but second time around he wed an unknown yoga instructor, Hilaria who is 26 years his junior.
Bruce Willis had been married to massive movie star Demi Moore, but now is wed to the much less famous Emma Heming, who is 23 years his junior. Kelsey Grammer also wed a non-famous person in the shape of air stewardess Kayte Walsh. There’s 25 years difference between them. Jeff Goldblum’s wife Emilie Livingston is a massive 30 years younger than him. Like Bruce and Emma, Kelsey and Kayte, and Alec and Hilaria, Jeff and Emilie have a young family. These older fathers will be pushing 100 when their youngest children are approaching the ages that their mothers currently are. That’s quite a thought.
Then there are the couples where both members are famous. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are one of the most high profile couples with a big age gap. Their 25-year difference raised plenty of eyebrows when they got together. Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are also a well-known celebrity couple with a big age difference of 20 years. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have a 22-year age difference, but they don’t give the gulf in age a second thought. In recent years the couple that has gained most media attention for their age gap relationship is Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor, who are 32 years apart in age.
