These celebrity couples most likely agree with the adage, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” Why? Because these celebrities still carried on even though some fans have raised their eyebrows. We have put together a list of some of the really memorable celebrity couples who have huge age gaps. So, did love prevail in the end? Read on to find out who is still dating or married!
George and Amal Clooney
Needless to say, this couple met for the first time at an event for charity. If you are generous with charity like George Clooney is, then you most likely spend a good amount of your time attending functions like that. The couple met in 2013 and got married just a year after. Despite the fact that his wife is 17 years his junior, George has really embraced the marriage. George was 55 and Amal was 36 when they tied the knot in Venice. They have since lived their life together as husband and wife in a mansion in England, which is reportedly worth $13 million. In June of 2016, they welcomed their twins, Ella and Alexander.
Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox
It’s not really a surprise that this couple is included in this list. Since 2004, the wonderful Megan Fox had been dating fellow actor Brian Austin Green. In 2010, the couple exchanged vows in an extravagant wedding in Hawaii. Many raised their eyebrows because of the couple’s age difference of 13 years and because Megan Fox had only been 18 when the two started dating. However, the couple have stayed together in spite of criticism, and they now have three kids. Even though the pair hit a rough patch in 2015, they managed to work things out.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
The pair met back in 2011 and tied the knot four years later. At the time, Amber was only 28 years old, while Johnny was 51. In spite of their age gap of 23 years, the two stayed married for two years. However, allegations of abuse soon surfaced, and they go a divorce in 2017. So, not exactly the fairy tale ending everyone hoped for.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles
Did you know that this power couple in Hollywood had such a huge age gap? That’s right. Jay-Z and the extremely talented Beyoncé have 12 years between them. Together, the happy couple are parents to three kids: Blue Ivy, and twins Sir Carter and Rumi. Needless to say, you most likely have seen Queen B’s floral pregnancy picture on her Instagram announcing the news. Oh and by the way, it was reported that the couple is worth a combined $1.255 billion.
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
It is undeniable that Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and model Behati Prinsloo have electric chemistry. Levine married the model back in 2014 when he was 35 years old and she was 25. Then in 2017, they welcomed their first child, Dusty Rose into the world, and in 2018, their second child, Gio Grace. Clearly, their strong bond isn’t affected by the decade that separates them.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Back in 2006, Matthew McConaughey locked eyes with Victoria Secret model Camila, and the rest, as they say, is history. Their 14 year age difference does not appear to faze them. They got engaged back in 2011, on Christmas. How romantic! The two married almost a year later. They now live with their three kids in Austin, Texas.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Ashton and Demi have got to be among Hollywood’s most iconic couples. Yes, we are aware that Ashton and former costar Mila Kunis are now happily married, but we need to relive this even just for a second. The couple who had a 16 year age gap, exchanged vows back in 2005. For years, Ashton and Demi were the hot topic in many conversations, but it seemed as if they were rarely affected by it. Sadly, the two separated in 2013. Now, as we said, Ashton and his wife Mila have two children.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Again, these two were also a Hollywood staple, in spite of the pair having 16 years between them. Tom and Katie got married back in 2006, but they had dating for 7 years before that. They are parents to their little girl, Suri, but their marriage sadly ended in divorce in 2012. Katie seems to have moved on and is reportedly dating Jamie Foxx, another older man.
Oliver Sarkozy and Mary-Kate Olsen
Mary-Kate turned heads when she got married to Olivier Sarkozy, who is a banker and 17 years her senior. Actually, Olivier is the half-brother of France’s former president Nicolas Sarkozy. Mary-Kate and Olivier Sarkozy got hitched back in 2015. At the time, she was 29 years old and he was already 46. In November 2016, she hit the headlines when she went on a double date. She was with her husband, her sister and her sister’s beau, who is up next.
Richard Sachs and Ashley Olsen
Now that we’ve mentioned the double date…this pair weren’t dating for a long time, yet they certainly made noise during their short-lived romance. Ashley Olsen and Richard Sachs have 28 years between them. The two tried to keep their dating life private, but when they were spotted together with Mary-Kate, things got very public. Sadly, it seems that love did not triumph as they broke up back in March 2017.
Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde
These two had an instant connection! Back in 2011, Jason and Olivia met for the first time, and the couple got engaged just two years later. In spite of never formally marrying, the couple have two children together. There is a nine year gap, and in case you were wondering, yes, Olivia is younger. However, all this appears to be inconsequential to the love they feel for each other.
Russell Brand and Katy Perry
In spite of the fact that the age gap had not been too overwhelming, this pair have since split. However, when they were still together, many just couldn’t get enough of the Hollywood couple despite the 9 year gap (with Katy being the younger one). They were married briefly from 2010 until 2012. As a matter of fact, fans speculate that Katy wrote some songs about her previous husband on her album!
Cory Gamble and Kris Jenner
This list wouldn’t be complete without a Kardashian. Well, technically, she is still a Jenner. Anyway, Kris Jenner and current boyfriend, Corey Gamble, have 25 years between them, with Kris being older. The couple have been together since 2014. Even though she claims that she isn’t looking for marriage, rumors are swirling about the couple being possibly engaged.
Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse
Ugh, we definitely miss this cute couple. Surprisingly, they had an age difference of 17 years. Bradley Cooper started dating Suki Waterhouse back in 2013, when he was 38 and she was 21 years old. They seemed really happy together, yet they broke up in 2015. Bradley has since moved on and is now in a relationship with Russian supermodel Irina Shayk. They welcomed a daughter in 2017.
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim
A lot of people might better remember the first two marriages Nicolas Cage had. However, we’re going to talk about the actor’s third marriage. When Cage met waitress Alice Kim, he felt an instant connection. They tied the knot in California in 2004. They had a ranch ceremony that was simple yet elegant. Many people talked about the 20 year age difference between Cage and Kim, who had only been 20 years old when she married the actor. Together, the pair have a son, but they split in 2016.
Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston
We all know the acclaimed actor Jeff Goldblum. After all, he played an iconic role in the film Jurassic Park. However, there is definitely more to this amazingly talented actor. He started a lovely family with Emilie Livingston, a former Olympic gymnast. He is 31 years her senior, but they exchanged vows in 2014. Just a year later, Jeff and Emilie welcomed their first son and then their second son in 2017. It is clear to see that the age gap makes no difference in happy couples.
Rene Angelil and Celine Dion
Now, “My Heart Will Go On” makes everyone really feel the emotions. Sadly, Celine Dion lost Rene Angelil, her husband, to throat cancer in 2016. In spite of the 26 years between them, the couple did not mind. The pair tied the knot back in 1994, and they had been together until his passing. They are parents to three kids.
Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
Now this is a couple who have stayed together through everything. Yes, Pierce Brosnan and his wife, Keely Shaye Smith, are still together. The Irish actor met the American journalist when they were in Mexico in 1994. Brosnan is 10 years older than Smith. They tied the knot in Ireland roughly seven years after they first met.
James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff
With 9 years between them, this pair decided it wasn’t anything to stop them when they met on set while filming Shameless. Thus, the two decided to get married in 2006. They have a son together, but unfortunately, things ended between the pair. They parted ways in 2016 and they tried their best to keep their divorce private to respect their son.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra Lee-Furness
This story is just too cute. Jackman and Deborra tied the knot back in 1996 and did not allow their 13 year age difference to affect anything. He had the phrase, “Om paramar mainamar,” engraved on the ring that he proposed with. Well, the meaning of the phrase is something like, “We dedicate our union to a greater source.” The couple have now been together for over 20 years, and they have two adopted kids.
Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall
The world came to know Jerry Hall for having dated Mick Jagger for over two decades. However, after their rocker romance, she found another love. She met Rupert Murdoch, an Australian-American media tycoon in 2015. It was basically love at first sight despite the 25 year age difference. They got hitched in 2016, when Rupert was 85 years old, and Jerry was only 60. How much sweeter can this get? Rupert even proposed to his sweetheart at the Golden Globes!
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres
What a perfect couple! You might not have even realized it, but Portia is actually 15 years younger than Ellen. From Ellen’s super fun talk show to Portia’s hilarious role on Arrested Development, this pair make for one ultra-talented couple! The two first met in 2004 and got married in 2008. The couple now resides in California.
Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson
If you see Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story most likely comes to mind. Yes, this celebrated AHS actress is known to have started dating the actress Holland Taylor in 2015. Many people say that they are a perfect couple, but other people cannot stop staring at their 32 year age difference. Paulson is only 43 years old, while her partner is already 75 years old. In spite of the gap, the couple seem to be quite happy and in love.
Younes Bendjima and Kourtney Kardashian
Yet another Kardashian. Apologies. We just had to because Kourtney and Younes Bendjima have been the hot topic of so many people’s conversations! This Algerian model had started dating Kourtney, who is 14 years his senior, during Paris Fashion Week in 2016. However, in August of 2018, there were reports that the two have split.
Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole
The former member of One Direction has grabbed headlines not just for his days as a boy band member but also for the ten years that stand between him and his girlfriend. Even though Cheryl is older, the two still became parents together. They started dating in February of 2016 and roughly a year later, had their child. Sadly, they confirmed their breakup in July 2018.
David Schwimmer and Zoe Buckman
Despite the fact that Friends star Schwimmer has 19 years on photographer Zoe, the couple seemed to have been enjoying marital bliss for years. In May 2011, they welcomed their daughter into the world. Schwimmer was 44 years old when he and Zoe got married. However, in April 2017, the couple announced that they were taking some time apart.
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas
In 2012, many people were caught by surprise when Alec Baldwin married yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, who was just 29 at the time while Baldwin was already 55 years old. They have had four kids since then in spite of the 26 year difference. For these two, age ain’t nothing but a number.
David Cross and Amber Tamblyn
Next up is another Arrested Development star and stand-up comedian David Cross with his wife who is one of the The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants stars and an accomplished author. Now, that is what you call a power couple. David Cross might be 19 years older than Amber Tamblyn, but they have a beautiful family. They welcomed their daughter early in 2017.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
Calista Flockhart’s words might have some effect on your confusion regarding her love life. She apparently teases Ford about how old he is and she said, “I remember thinking: ‘This is ridiculous, he’s way too old for me, I’m way too young.’ But you can’t help who you fall in love with, and I fell in love with him. It might be an issue in the future, but as of now, it really hasn’t been.” That’s really great to hear! We are happy that the 22 years between them does not become an obstacle in their love.
Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez
Even though their relationship ended back in 2016, it is still worth recapping. JLO and actor Casper Smart dated for five years. Casper, who is 18 years younger than Lopez, defended the couple’s relationship back when the two had been dating, saying, “Age, status, and opinions of others are irrelevant. Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite…Ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining.” Isn’t that poetic? Sadly, their relationship did not last. JLO has since moved on and is now in dating another younger man, pro baseball player Alex Rodriguez.

Then, the two got hitched in 2012 and afterwards, changed names to Taylor-Johnson. They are now parents to two lovely daughters.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Ugh, the pain never really goes away for this one. Anyway, Brangelina were simply iconic when they were together. Yes, there were 12 years between them, but hardly anyone really focused on Brad being older. After six children and a lot of wonderful years of being together, the world was not ready to hear that they have separated. It’s safe to say it came as a shock.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
They are probably one of the most adored couples in Hollywood in spite of their 11 year age gap. Most people can hardly notice that Ryan is 12 years older than his wife. In addition, have you seen them on Twitter? Super adorable and quite hilarious! The couple also has two adorable little girls.

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey
