Happiest Hollywood couples with big age gaps

Speaking about relationships, what is a normal age difference between lovers? Is it one, two, four years? Or is it ok for one partner to be significantly older than the other? It’s hard to give the correct answer to this question because what works for you might not work for someone else and vice versa. Anyway, here are some celebrity couples with big age differences who obviously believe that age is just a number.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé, 12 years








They might be music superstars worth almost a billion dollars together, but Jay-Z and Beyoncé remain notoriously tight-lipped about their relationship, not to mention their 12-year age difference. Jay and B 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.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, 22 years








Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart began dating in 2002 after he spilled a glass of wine on her dress at the 2002 Golden Globes. The actors tied the knot in 2010 New Mexico and are still going strong. They are raising son Liam together.

Olivier Sarkozy and Mary-Kate Olsen, 17 years








Olsen twin Mary-Kate, 27, has been going steady with former French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s half-brother, Olivier, 44, since May 2012 and they are engaged. 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.”

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness, 13 years








Jackman has been married to Australian actress Deborra-Lee Furness since 1996. She is 13 years older than him, but it obviously doesn’t stand in their way. Speaking about his wife, Hugh said: “I’m an indecisive person. I’m terrible to go to a restaurant with, I can spend 10 minutes deciding… When I met Deb, I don’t know what it was. It was the clearest thing in the world for me. I knew 100 percent… I’ve never known anything as confidently or sure in my life that she was the one I was going to be with… In any marriage there’s good times, bad times, hard times and bad times. Whatever happens I know we’re going to tackle it together. Truly she’s the greatest woman I have ever met.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, 25 years








Catherine Zeta-Jones is exactly 25 years younger than Michael Douglas. Along with their two children, Dylan and Carys, the couple shares a birthday — September 25. The Oscar winners tied the knot in 2000, when she was 31 and he was 56, and have remained solid despite a few tough years. In 2011, Douglas was diagnosed with throat cancer (now in remission), and Zeta-Jones revealed her struggle with bipolar disorder. Of the ordeals, Zeta-Jones says, “You find out who you really are and who you are married to.”

Annette Bening and Warren Beatty, 21 years








With his famous love conquests, no one thought legendary ladies’ man Warren Beatty would ever settle down. Then, he met Annette Bening 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. They have four children together.

Woody Allen and Soon Yi Previn, 35 years








One of the most famously controversial Hollywood romances is that of Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn. Previn was the adopted daughter of Allen’s longtime girlfriend Mia Farrow (so he was basically her stepfather). Farrow and Allen separated in 1992 after she discovered nude photographs of 20-year-old Previn taken by the famous director. With an age difference of 35 years, Allen and Previn were married in 1997.

James Woods and Kristen Bauguess, 46 years








Many were shocked when last year James Woods showed off his 46 years younger girlfriend Kristen Bauguess at the New York premiere of his movie White House Down. Before Kristen, James was dating Ashley Madison, who is 40 years his junior.
