Top 10 Celebrity Couples With A Big Age Difference
19 Celebrity Couples with Seriously Significant Age Differences
In 2007, Bruce Willis met model Emma Willis (née Heming)—who is 23 years younger than him—at their mutual trainer's gym. They were married two years later, and today : Mabel Ray and Evelyn Penn.
After briefly breaking up in 2002, actor Kevin Costner and model-turned-handbag designer Christine Baumgartner reconciled. The duo, with 22 years difference between them, went on to get married in Aspen in 2004. Today, they have three children together: Cayden, Hayes and Grace.
Although much was made of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas' 25-year age gap when they got married, the happy couple got the last laugh—they've been married for almost two decades. "It's a long road and I think people are so quick to throw in the towel on marriage," she told the Daily Mail in 2019. "You have to give it your best shot and not give up when the first problem arises, because that won't be the last problem. There will be many more down the road."
There's a 27-year age difference between actor-singer David Hasselhoff and model Hayley Roberts, but they don't let it get in their way. The couple, who met when she asked for his autograph seven years ago, married in a small ceremony in Italy in 2019.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart are both acutely aware of their 22-year age gap. They just don't really care. "I was 60 when I fell in love with Calista," Harrison told Hello! in 2009. "What surprised me most was that I was still capable of establishing a long-lasting relationship, making a serious commitment. With my children, in my private life or my work, I try to learn from my mistakes and evolve." The couple married in 2010.
It was practically love at first sight for Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres when they met on a photo shoot in 2004. "She took my breath away," de Rossi told The Advocate the following year. "That had never happened to me in my life, where I saw somebody and [experienced] all of those things you hear about in songs and read about in poetry. My knees were weak. It was amazing. And it was very hard for me to get her out of my mind after that."
DeGeneres and de Rossi, who have a 15-years age difference, got married in 2008.
Despite their 25-year age gap, KarJenner matriarch Kris Jenner and boyfriend Corey Gamble still seem to be on steady footing after four years together. However, that's not to say she's ready to walk down the aisle with her much-younger boyfriend anytime soon. Or ever. "You know you never say never," Jenner told E! News about getting married again. "But I often say it's just not what I need to do again based on my past."
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening embrace their more-than-two-decade age difference. "He's 21 years older than I am and we've always been at different stages of life," Bening told the U.K.'s Times. "He's got a lot of experience. But we're very different in many ways. The crucial thing is that while we want many of the same things in life, we've thrived because we approach things very differently."
One of the larger age gaps on the list, actor Jeff Goldblum and gymnast Emilie Livingston have a 30-year age difference. The pair tied the knot in 2014 and continue to pack on the PDA.
There might be a 34-year age gap between Katharine McPhee and David Foster, but the engaged couple says their relationship just feels right. "It doesn't make sense to a lot of people, but it does to us," she told People.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy have a 17-year age difference, but the reclusive couple certainly doesn't seem to let comments about the age gap get them down. They got married in 2015 and can occasionally even be caught strolling around NYC together.
Odds are good that Rod Stewart has, in fact, told wife Penny Lancaster he loves her lately. The pair, who are 27 years apart in age, got hitched in 2007 and have two sons together.
Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson certainly set tongues wagging when they began dating—thanks largely to their 24-year age gap. He was 18 and she was 42 when they struck up their romance. Still, they seem pretty unflappable. In addition to being stepfather to her daughters from a previous marriage, Aaron fathered two daughters with Sam. In 2019, Sam directed her now-husband in the upcoming adaptation of James Frey's A Million Little Pieces and called the opportunity "a dream."
Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor have a 32-year age gap, but this couple honestly couldn't get any cuter. After meeting over a decade ago, they decided to keep in touch. That turned into dating in 2015, and the women routinely gush about each other in interviews.
