Famous couples with big age differences

A new survey says that the ideal age difference in a relationship is when the man is 4 years and four months older than the woman. But does age difference really matter that much? Many celebrity couples would say that age is just a number and that compatibility is what is important. Here are some Hollywood relationships facing big age gaps.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy








Olsen twin Mary-Kate, 26, has been going steady with former French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s half brother, 43, since May 2012. Addressing those weirded out by their age difference, Mary-Kate told the Wall Street Journal magazine: “Everyone has an opinion. I find it’s better to focus on what’s in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other.”

Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell








British actor Patrick Stewart, 73, just tied the knot with 35-year-old jazz singer Sunny Ozell, whom he’s been dating since 2009. Age difference between them is 38 years.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness








The 57-year-old Australian actress Deborra-Lee Furness is married to one of the hottest actors in the world, Hugh Jackman, who is 13 years her junior. Of their 16-year marriage, Hugh says, “I have a career, but Deb and my kids are who I live for.”

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green








By marrying Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green was able to find a wife who hadn’t fallen in love with him during his time on Beverly Hills, 90210. In fact, Brian, 39, says that he doesn’t even let his 26-year-old spouse check out reruns of his David Silver glory days. Nonetheless, they seem very happy together, going strong since their 2010 nuptials.

Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa

16 years after her divorce from rocker Lenny Kravitz, Lisa Bonet got hitched to Game of Thrones hottie Jason Momoa. Jason is 34, while Lisa is 46! The pair have two children together, and regardless of the age difference, they’re two of the hottest TV stars we can think of.

Beyonce and Jay-Z








They might be music superstars worth almost a billion dollars together, but Jay-Z and Beyonce remain notoriously tight-lipped about their decade-long relationship, not to mention their 12-year age difference. They met in the studio in 2002, when she was just 20. Seven years later they married in a top-secret New York City ceremony, and a baby girl named Blue Ivy came along in early 2012.

Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn








Woody Allen’s affair with Soon-Yi Previn caused a major scandal when it came to light in 1992. Not only was he married at the time, but his wife was the adopted mother of Soon-Yi. They have been married for 15 years and Woody has never seen the relationship as controversial. He has said: “What was the scandal? I fell in love with this girl, married her. We have been married for almost 15 years now. There was no scandal, but people refer to it all the time as a scandal and I kind of like that in a way because when I go I would like to say I had one real juicy scandal in my life.”

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart








Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart met at the 2002 Golden Globes. She admitted to People that her wine ended up all over him, but it was the start of a long-lasting relationship. The actors tied the knot in 2010 and are still going strong. Although Harrison is 70 to Calista’s 48, they don’t even notice the gap.

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin








Stephen Moyer, 43, and Anna Paquin, 30, began dating back in 2007 while filming Season 1 of their hit HBO series True Blood. The sexy couple tied the knot in August 2010, and they are now proud parents to fraternal twins — a boy and a girl born in September 2012.

Annette Bening and Warren Beatty








The pair met while working on Bugsy in 1991, when he was 54 and she was 33. “It was something that we both took very seriously very quickly,” says Bening. Twenty years later, they have four children together.

    Wow! What can be said?! To love all ages are submissive! I believe there are no obstacles for the true love. Many marriages with big age gap break, but so do the marriages among people of the same age. We just pay more attention when there is an age gap there as it seem apparent to us, still the marriages in this list prove the opposite. The true love has no obstacles! I wish these couples much love and happiness and staying together till the end of their days!
