Celebrity Couples With Big Age Gaps
In the crazy Hollywood scene, it’s easy to be fooled by celebrities who have had work done to try and disguise their real age. That, combined with the fact that many young child stars grow up too fast in a crazy industry can be seen to contribute to the high rate of intergenerational relationships.
Most of us have heard of stories like 50-year-old Doug Hutchison marrying 16-year-old aspiring reality TV star Courtney Stodden, but did you know that there are many much more “normal” Hollywood marriages between couples that are almost as far apart in age? Read more below.
Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin
The lovebirds who met while filming their hit show True Blood are actually separated by 12 years. Moyer is 46, while Paquin is 34. Maybe it’s because Paquin was a child star very early on (she starred in Fly Away Home when she was just 13 years old), but dating an older man never seemed to be an issue for her. In 2009, after two years of dating, the couple announced their engagement. They have two children, fraternal twins Poppy and Charlie.
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine first met Behati Prinsloo, a model 10 years his junior, in 2012. Hailing from Namibia, she first came to the States as a model for the brand Pink, before being picked up by their parent company Victoria’s Secret. After dating for a year, they announced their engagement in 2013, and tied the knot in Mexico in July of 2014. Although they seem to be happy together, the rumor mill has already began churning with reports that they may not survive to see their second anniversary.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy, Ashley Olsen and Bennett Miller
Both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have a penchant for dating older men. Ashley has been seeing director Bennett Miller for the past year, while Mary-Kate is married to Olivier Sarkozy, the half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Although Sarkozy is only 45 to Mary-Kate’s 29, Bennett is a few years older, making the average age difference between the girls and their beaux 17 years.
