54 Hollywood Icons and Their Age Gap with Their PartnersBy John P.
Cliche or not, the heart wants what the heart wants. We have no control over who we end up falling in love with. While love doesn’t care if a person is younger or older than us, we certainly do! When it comes to romance, whether you’re an ordinary citizen or a well-known celebrity, numerous factors contribute to the level of chemistry between you and your partner. Sharing interests or hobbies in common is always a good thing, and this usually comes when you’re of a similar age. Of course, what’s “usual” isn’t always what’s right for every couple.
People worry excessively about age gaps because of the social stigma attached to them. Because of this, when we develop feelings for someone outside of our age range, we assume those feelings are “incorrect.” One place where this sentiment doesn’t hold true in Hollywood. Many famous couples have astonishing age gaps, just like these 40 famous men who had long-term relationships with younger partners.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (16 Years)
The Mission: Impossible franchise made Tom Cruise a household name. Known for both his clean-cut good looks and his acting flexibility, he was one of Hollywood’s most beloved leading men. Tom dated a number of famous personalities, including Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers.
As he grew older, Tom Cruise found himself falling for a woman who was 16 years younger than him. Tom Cruise eventually married the actress Katie Holmes who has also made her mark in Hollywood on both the big and small screens. Though the relationship didn’t last, neither of them seemed to mind their age difference.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone (23 Years)
Everyone is familiar with one of the most iconic roles Leonardo DiCaprio ever played – Jack Dawson from the 1998 iconic movie Titanic. Leonardo DiCaprio has enjoyed an interesting dating history – one that everyone has been keeping tabs on due to his prominence in the entertainment industry. Considering his talent and wealth, it’s no wonder that Leo has found himself in a number of high-profile relationships.
DiCaprio has never been one to put down roots. But Camila Morrone, the actress he is currently dating, may eventually persuade him to do so. While they’ve kept their relationship private, the two have been dating since late 2017. They were spotted together in Malibu in late March 2021. This pair has a 23-year age difference, but it doesn’t appear to bother them in the least.
David Foster and Katherine McPhee (34 Years)
David Foster and Katharine McPhee have an exciting story of how they met. The two initially met on the fifth season of American Idol – the season in which Katharine was a competitor. David came to Katharine’s aid since she was set to sing a song he had originally written.
As a result of David’s role as her mentor, the two formed a close connection. Though Katharine was concerned about the public’s perception of their relationship, the two confirmed their engagement in 2018. The couple’s 34-year age difference drew the media’s attention more than any other details of their relationship.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé (11 Years)
Jay-Z and Beyoncé are unquestionably the king and queen of today’s pop scene, having been dubbed the world’s most recognized musical couple. Even though they initially met in early 2000, they didn’t begin dating until 2001. In 2008, they secretly wed in front of their friends and family.
According to speculation, the couple’s relationship has been plagued by cheating and other shady affairs. They were able to stay together and keep their marriage intact despite their tough run, and they now have three children. It goes without saying that despite their age difference of 11 years, they have a strong relationship.
Sean Penn and Leila George (32 Years)
Sean Penn rose to prominence as a lead actor after starring in the 1995 movie Dead Man Walking. He has been married to some high-profile people during the course of his long and stellar career, including Madonna. However, after less than four years of marriage, Madonna and Penn got divorced. It appears Sean moved on to a more youthful set once that relationship ended.
Sean Penn got into a relationship with Layla George, an Australian-American actress who is 32 years his junior. After four years of dating, the 61-year-old actor and his girlfriend Leila George married in an intimate ceremony in July 2020. However, the actress filed for divorce after only a year of marriage.
Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh (25 Years)
Kelsey Grammer was best known for playing psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane on the NBC sitcom Cheers and its spin-off Frasier for two decades. After his widely publicized divorce from Camille Grammer on the smash reality television show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kelsey sought a more low-key relationship.
Soon after meeting Kayte Walsh, who is 25 years his junior, the two of them developed feelings for each other. They were married two weeks after the actor’s divorce was finalized. Kelsey and Kayte married at the Plaza Hotel in New York City and now have two children, Faith and Kelsey.
Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus (8 Years)
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s rekindled romance has recently made the news. While vacationing in St. Tropez and Italy this summer, the Bennifer pair gave their fans an up-close and personal peek at their romance. In the past, however, Affleck has had a number of romances with younger women.
Lindsey Shookus, a producer for Saturday Night Live, was one of them. Though there was only an eight-year age difference, it could have been a deal-breaker for Lindsey as their relationship was short-lived. Ben went on to date younger women before rekindling his flame with J-Lo.
Steven Tyler and Aimee Ann Preston (41 Years)
Steven Tyler is the lead singer of the famous rock band Aerosmith, with hits like ‘Dream On’ and ‘Walk This Way’ to his name. He was one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most recognizable stars. Aerosmith has won many awards, and in the process, Tyler became famous for more than just his singing talent. He also became an infamous womanizer.
Steven Tyler had been married twice. Currently, he is dating his secretary, Aimee Ann Preston. The professional relationship gradually grew into a romantic relationship. Aimee is 33 years old and is older than only one of his daughters. Although she and the rockstar are 41 years apart in age, they seem to be very much in love.
Zach Braff and Florence Pugh (21 Years)
Zach Braff appears to have a fondness for younger ladies these days, but this wasn’t always the case. He had been romantically linked to several high-profile actresses, including Kirsten Dunst and Drew Barrymore. Still, he eventually found love with an actress who was considerably younger than him.
Zach Braff and Florence Pugh have been dating since 2019, despite their 21-year age difference. Their relationship has been called into question countless times, yet the Black Widow actress and her boyfriend appear to be inseparable – they even adopted a dog together!
Al Pacino and Meital Dohan (39 Years)
Actor and director Al Pacino is one of only a handful of actors to have won the Triple Crown of Acting, a feat he has accomplished throughout a career spanning more than five decades. For decades, Al Pacino has been a constant presence in Hollywood. When it comes to romance, he has been linked to several other high-profile women.
Al had been in multiple relationships, but anytime the subject of marriage or the term “husband” came up, the celebrity would walk away, distancing himself from the relationship. Although many of these ladies were closer to his age, he appears to have chosen to date younger women of late. Most recently, he was connected to Israeli movie star Meital Dohan, who is 39 years younger than him.
Sean Combs and Lori Harvey (28 Years)
Sean Combs, more recognizable by his stage names Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Puffy, or Diddy, is a famous American rapper. In the course of his career, he has been linked to several high-profile women, including Jennifer Lopez. Puff Daddy dated the singer Cassie the longest. They had an on-and-off relationship for over ten years.
When this romance ended, the entrepreneur started dating Lori Harvey. In the past, there was suspicion that Lori and the rapper were engaged because she wore an engagement ring on her ring finger. Lori shot down the rumors on Instagram, stating, “I’m not engaged.” The 28-year age gap between the two may have contributed to the short-lived nature of the relationship, which lasted for three months.
Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie (39 Years)
Dennis Quaid is a famous American actor who has appeared in a wide range of dramatic and comedic roles. Though he had been married three times before, he still craved a meaningful connection. The actor, who is 66 years old, found a means to keep his dating life more discreet, and he eventually ended up proposing to a non-showbiz woman who was far younger than him.
Dennis Quaid dated Laura Savoie, who is in her late-20s which makes her roughly four decades younger than the actor. He proposed to Savoie just four months after meeting her, despite their 39-year age difference. Since then, they’ve married and appear to be in love.
Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato (12 Years)
After his relationship with Demi Lovato, Wilmer Valderrama’s taste for younger ladies did not seem to change. His personal preferences have garnered a great deal of attention in the past, particularly during his six-year romance with pop star Demi Lovato.
The couple, despite a 12-year age disparity, appeared to be able to work out their differences. However, they eventually split up and went on with their lives. Wilmer is, at the time of writing, engaged to Amanda Pacheco, the mother of his child.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart (22 Years)
Harrison Ford, the star of Indiana Jones, has been the target of numerous tabloid rumors about his alleged affairs. All of this drama seemed to drift away when he found love with Calista Flockhart. Harrison first met Calista, who is 22 years his junior, at the Golden Globes in 2002.
The two have been together since 2002 and have a kid together. After almost two decades of dating, the stars appear to be more in love than ever. In this situation, the age difference seems to have worked out perfectly.
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger (11 Years)
Chris Pratt has established himself as a leading man over the last few years, which has heightened the interest in his personal life. After eight years of being together, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their separation, shocking Hollywood. In the end, the star of Guardians of the Galaxy found a new partner.
Chris Pratt wed Katherine Schwarzenegger, the daughter of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. It didn’t appear to bother them that their age disparity was 11 years. As a result of their union, they now have a child.
Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski (29 Years)
After more than a decade together and two years of marriage, Jolie and Pitt ended their relationship in 2016. This divorce has kept him in the public eye for the past few years. The paparazzi and the tabloid press have so much information on Brad that you’d think he’d avoid getting romantically involved again.
Brad appeared to have found new love with the German model Nicole Poturalski, despite their 29-year age difference. However, Pitt and Poturalski broke up after little more than two months of dating.
Dane Cook and Kelsi Taylor (26 Years)
Dane Cook is a fairly well-known comedian who tries to keep things interesting. Throughout his professional and personal life, Cook was the target of a lot of scrutiny and controversy. Recently, the comedian began dating Taylor, a 22-year-old musician who also works in the fitness field and the acting industry.
The two met at a gaming night organized by Cook, and their obvious attraction to one another couldn’t be ignored after that. Despite having a 26-year age difference, they still had a lot in common. Nevertheless, because they have been together for an extended period, everything appears to be working well.
Mel Gibson and Rosalind Ross (35 Years)
Max Rockatansky, Mel Gibson’s debut role, made him one of the best-known action heroes of all time. Though he has had his share of controversies over the years, he remains one of Hollywood’s most prominent actors. His status as a celebrity means that any relationship he enters into receives a great deal of attention.
Mel Gibson started dating Rosalind Ross, who’s 35 years his junior, in 2014. It wasn’t until after a long vacation in Central America in mid-2015 that Gibson and Ross were officially reported as a relationship. Some people may find this age difference a problem, but that doesn’t appear to be the case for these two.
Scott Disick and Sofia Richie (15 Years)
Disick became famous as Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend on the reality television show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Scott and Kourtney’s on-and-off romance eventually came to an end, and Scott did his best to move on.
In 2017, Disick publicized his relationship with Lionel Richie’s daughter, Sofia Richie, who is 15 years his junior. Richie is good friends with numerous members of the Kardashian family, making this an unusual connection. However, after three years of dating, Scott and Sofia split up in July 2020. Scott has since started a new relationship with Amelia Hamlin, a model.
Pete Cook and Alba Jancou (39 Years)
It’s possible that you’ve never heard of Pete Cook, the architect who married Christie Brinkley and shot to fame as a result. Following their divorce, Pete began dating women who were a few years younger than his ex-wife.
Alba Jancou, a 21-year-old model, caught his attention. Cook revealed in a statement to Page Six, “We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have found, in each other, our soulmate.” There is a 39-year age difference between them, and his significant other is younger than his daughter. But that didn’t stop him from popping the question!
Michael Sheen and Anna Lundberg (25 Years)
Throughout his career, Michael Sheen has dated several famous personalities. The program Prodigal Son, for which Sheen has recently been making headlines, isn’t the only area where many people feel he rocks the boat a little bit.
Immediately following the collapse of his marriage to Kate Beckinsale, Sheen entered into a relationship with Anna Lundberg, a gorgeous young woman. Although there is a 25-year age gap between the pair, they appear to be happy and making it work. The couple had a baby in September 2019.
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas (16 Years)
Here we go again with Ben Affleck. Since he split from Jennifer Garner, the actor has had many relationships with younger women. Still, they were evidently all short-lived because he and Jennifer Lopez are now back together.
He had a romantic relationship with Ana de Armas, a Cuban actress 16 years his junior. After meeting on the set of Deep Water in late 2019, the couple started dating in early 2020. By January, they had already broken up (reportedly over the phone).
Lionel Richie and Lisa Parigi (40 Years)
Sofia’s father, Lionel Richie, also made it on the list! Since he’s been performing love songs for decades, Lionel Richie is no stranger to romance. However, when he began dating Lisa Parigi in 2014, he kept the relationship under wraps.
It wasn’t until 2021 that the relationship was thrown into the spotlight, and people started talking about the 40-year age difference. However, despite the negative feedback they’ve received on social media, the two are still madly in love.
Robin Thicke and April Love Geary (18 Years)
Robin Thicke is best known for his 2013 single “Blurred Lines,” which launched him into the international spotlight. After a terrible breakup, it seems that many Hollywood stars resort to partners who are quite different from the one they just left. The singer’s marriage to Paula Patton ended in a tumultuous divorce.
Thicke began dating a new lady – model April Love Geary – months after the breakup with his ex-girlfriend. They appear to be genuinely in love, especially since they’ve welcomed three children into the world together.
James Woods and Sara Miller (42 Years)
In terms of romance, James Woods has had quite a bit of experience. The 74-year-old actor thought he was done with marriage after his first two, but then he met Sarah Miller and changed his mind.
Despite their 42-year age difference, Woods and Miller couldn’t help but fall in love. It was recently reported that the award-winning actor was engaged to his 32-year-old partner, who was wearing a massive diamond ring on her finger.
Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunakey (30 Years)

Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim (20 Years)
Nicolas Cage is most known for his roles in action movies and odd indie films. Alice Kim was a waitress at an LA restaurant when Cage met her. At the time, Kim was only 19, and Cage was 40. They married two months later so that she could accompany him to South Africa, where he was filming Lord of War.
Before Cage met Alice Kim, he had already been married twice. After a while, the couple decided to call it quits, perhaps due to their 20-year age difference. Of course, Kim wouldn’t be the only younger woman Cage would bring into his life.
Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin (22 Years)
Sylvester Stallone is best known for portraying boxer Rocky Balboa. In 1988, Stallone and Flavin met at a Beverly Hills restaurant. Despite their age disparity of 22 years, the two were drawn to one another and began dating immediately afterward.
Stallone was 46 years old when he first met Flavin, who was about 20 years old at the time. After 24 years of dating, they appear to have no problem with their 22-year age difference. Since 1997, the actor and model have been married, and they now have three daughters together.
Lorenzo Lamas and Kenna Nicole Smith (27 Years)
After four unsuccessful marriages, it appeared that Lorenzo was doomed to the life of an eternal bachelor – that is, until he met Kenna Nicole Smith, who changed everything. If anyone can convince you that an age gap isn’t a problem, it’s these two.
Despite their 27-year age difference, Lorenzo and Kenna eventually began dating after being introduced by his godmother. Soon after, their romance progressed to the point of marriage, and the two became inseparable. Lamas has already been married five times, and as of 2021, he’s set to make Kenna his sixth!
Gavin Rossdale and Sophia Thomalla (24 Years)
Gavin Rossdale jumped right back into the dating pool after a bitter divorce from Gwen Stefani, a rock star he married in 2002. In 2017, he began dating German beauty Sophia Thomalla.
It was only a year, though, before the couple decided to part ways. The 24-year age gap between the two, and the fact that Gavin was seeing a lady a year younger than his oldest daughter, drew the attention of everyone. The singer is rumored to be dating model Gwen Singer right now.
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas (26 Years)
Alec Baldwin has had several high-profile relationships throughout his career, including his marriage to Kim Basinger, which ended in divorce. After their split in 2002, Alec Baldwin began dating a younger woman.

Nicolas Cage and Riko Shibata (30 years)
After his marriage to Alice Kim ended, Nicolas Cage started dating again. He decided to try a much younger woman this time around to see if it would work. Cage announced his relationship with Riko Shibata at the Independent Spirit Awards in 2020.
The 57-year-old met Riko, a woman 30 years his junior, in Japan in 2020. On February 16th, 2021, they were married at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas in a small and intimate ceremony. At the time of writing, they are still together.
Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick (32 Years)
The piano man, Billy Joel, didn’t give up on finding “the one” despite several failed relationships. The 67-year-old singer has been with Roderick, who is 33 years his junior, since 2009. They have a child together.
It appears that dating a woman half his age is working out just fine for him. The couple shocked guests at their annual 4th of July party by exchanging vows in a surprise ceremony. They married in 2015 and have been blissfully happy ever since, despite their 32-year age difference.
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander (11 Years)
It’s not uncommon in Hollywood to meet your soulmate while filming a movie. While filming The Light Between Oceans, Fassbender and Vikander became romantically involved. In the film, they played a married couple, which they seemed to embody in real life.
In 2017, one year after they began dating, the couple got married in Spain, despite their 11-year age difference. The fact that they had their first child in 2021 proves that their age gap isn’t a significant issue to them.
Josh Duhamel and Audra Mari (21 Years)
Josh Duhamel has been in the limelight for years as an actor and fashion model. He was once married to Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, but eight years after exchanging vows, they got divorced.
Josh has dated several women since the breakup. Since 2019, he has been dating Audra Mari (winner of the 2016 Miss World America) after being introduced by a common friend in Los Angeles. The couple has a 21 year age gap, but it doesn’t seem to bother them.
Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey (14 Years)
After meeting Camila Alves in 2007, Matthew McConaughey believed he had finally found his soulmate. Camila seemed to change the perception of the actor being a ladies’ man. They got married in 2012, so something must have clicked.
They met in 2006 and got engaged on Christmas Day in 2011. They married in a private Catholic ceremony in Austin, Texas, where they currently reside. They appear to be very much in love despite their 14-year age difference; in fact, they have welcomed three children into their lives.
John Stamos and Caitlin McHugh (22 Years)
Regardless of whether or not John Stamos has finally found true happiness, he remains a heartthrob. He and his latest wife met in 2015 while filming a television show. Soon after, they started dating, and eventually, they got married.
Because there is a 22-year age gap between these lovers, many people assumed their relationship would collapse. However, they remain madly in love and even have a child together.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin (17 Years)
George Clooney, the Academy Award-winning actor, once stated that he had no intentions of getting married. When he met a gorgeous attorney in 2013, however, he had a complete change of heart.
Despite his claim that he would remain a Hollywood bachelor, George popped the question just six months into their relationship. In Venice, Italy, Amal Alamuddin and George tied the knot after a year of dating. Their connection appears to have been unaffected by their 17-year age difference.
Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston (30 Years)
Throughout the 1980s, Jeff Goldblum tried his luck at marriage twice but failed miserably. He has been married to Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis, but both ended in divorce. It appeared that he had no luck when it came to finding love.
When Jeff Goldblum met Emilie Livingston in 2014, it was a completely new experience for him. A chance encounter led to many happy moments together. Despite being 30 years younger than Jeff, Emilie has been by his side ever since. They even have two children together.

Jason Statham is a British actor and producer who is known for playing anti-hero roles. The legendary actor is married to a woman who is 20 years his junior. The two became acquainted while working on the film Transformers: The Dark Moon.
However, they didn’t make their relationship public until a year later. In 2017, Rosie and Jason had their first child, Jack. The two started dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2016. An age disparity of 20 years doesn’t seem to be a problem for this couple.
Bob Saget and Kelly Rizzo (23 Years)
Full House actor Bob Saget married actress Kelly Rizzo, who is 23 years his junior. If you didn’t already know, the Eat Travel Rock streaming series is hosted by food and travel blogger Rizzo.
It was through a common friend that Saget and Rizzo first met in 2015. It all started when Saget sent her a direct Instagram message. A year and a half later, they made up their minds to get married, and it appears that the 23-year age difference isn’t getting in the way of their love for one another.
Dolph Lundgren and Emma Krokdal (38 Years)
His first role in a film was as a Russian boxer in Rocky IV. Throughout the years, Lundgren has been in several movies, and he tends to favor action-packed roles. In his personal life, he has an entirely different set of personal preferences.
He’s never made headlines for his love life, but all that changed due to his latest relationship with Emma Krokdal, a Norwegian personal trainer. The 38-year age disparity between the two has drawn attention to their love story.
David Cross and Amber Tamblyn (19 Years)
During a flight from Houston to Louisiana in 2007, the two struck up a conversation. As a fan of Cross, Tambly became ecstatic when she saw the actor sitting nearby. Despite their significant age difference, the couple has been married for more than a decade.
They became engaged four years later, in 2011, and married the following year. David Cross and Amber Tamblyn have been married since 2012, but the comedian claimed that he was initially reluctant to be linked with the actress because of their 19-year age difference.
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva (34 Years)
Richard Gere is an actor best known for his appearances in American Gigolo and Pretty Woman. Since Gere is a family friend of Alejandra Silva, the two have known each other since she was a child. In 2014, Alejandra was working as a manager at a hotel where they reconnected. The two were reintroduced, and they both had a “powerful connection” right away.
Before announcing their romance, the two had been dating for some time. They may have kept it a secret because of the 34-year age difference or simply because they desired a little alone time. Since the couple’s wedding in 2018, they have had two children.
Bruce Willis and Emma Heming (24 years)
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis maintained a close friendship after their divorce in 2000, and their co-parenting relationship is a model for the ideal. Bruce and Demi have three daughters, and while Demi moved on with Ashton Kutcher, Bruce took a little longer to find love again.
Nearly a decade after his divorce was finalized, Bruce found love again with Emma Hemming, who is 24 years younger than him. Even Demi Moore describes Emma as “absolutely inspiring.” In 2009, the couple married and had two children, and they’ve been happily married ever since.
Julius Tenon and Viola Davis (12 Years)
Julius Tenon was a former college football player who became an actor and film producer. On the set of CBS’s City of Angels, Tennon and Viola Davis became acquainted. Davis said she fell almost instantly in love.
After getting married in 2003, they went on to adopt a daughter together in 2011, whom they named Genesis. Given how many years they’ve been happily together, it doesn’t seem like their 12 year age gap has hampered their love for one another at all.
Jeffrey Morgan and Hilarie Burton (16 Years)
Jeffrey Morgan is best known to television and movie audiences as Denny Duquette from Grey’s Anatomy and Negan from The Walking Dead. Nevertheless, his relationship with Hilarie Burton was the most talked about when it comes to his personal life.
Their friend Jensen Ackles, who played Morgan’s co-star in Supernatural, introduced them to each other. After dating for a year in 2009, the pair tied the knot in front of family and friends. Although they have a 16-year age difference, they had no problem starting a family.
Tony Bennett and Susan Crow (40 Years)
Tony Bennett is a painter as well as a retired American vocalist. After all these years, Tony Bennett still has a knack for making headlines. When he was 60, and Susan Crow was 20, they met at one of his shows, and sparks flew.
They dated for 20 years before marrying in 2007. Bennett revealed that Crow’s mother attended one of his concerts while pregnant with Susan, so they technically met before she was even born. The 40-year age disparity didn’t stop them from settling down and becoming a couple.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones (25 Years)
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones share the same birthday. The only difference is, they were born 25 years apart. They met at the Deauville American Film Festival. They have been married for more than two decades and are often considered one of Hollywood’s most striking couples.
At first, there was a lot of discussion about the 25-year age difference and how it might affect their relationship. However, the couple’s age difference hasn’t been an issue. They’ve enjoyed a long marriage and have made it through many challenges.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening (22 Years)
Warren Beatty is an Oscar-winning director and actor known for such films as Bonnie and Clyde. When he met Bening, the distinguished Hollywood bachelor had transformed his behaviors for the better. Benning was 33 years old at the time, while Beatty was 54. They met when he cast her in his 1991 film Bugsy.
Despite his claims that he wouldn’t approach her till the shoot was complete, he ended up asking her out for dinner. They were married a year later, and the 22-year age gap did not influence their relationship, as they have stayed together since.
Jimmy Page and Scarlett Sabet (46 Years)
Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin’s lead guitarist, has been married twice. The rock legend is 46 years older than his current partner, Scarlett Sabet. Sabet was reading her poetry at a bookshop in 2014 when Page walked in and saw her for the first time.
Sabet’s words obviously touched Page, and one thing led to the next. Since that moment at the bookstore, the couple has been dating for six years straight. It looks like the 46-year age difference between the two will not shake them.
Randy and Simone Jackson (35 Years)
American Idol judge Randy Jackson was a well-known music producer before he joined the show. After making his name in the public spotlight, he opened himself up to the possibility of a romantic relationship.
In October 2018, Simone, a 30-year-old musician, posted a picture of herself and Randy on Instagram, but it wasn’t clear how long they’d been dating. Despite the fact that they are 35 years apart in age, they appear to love each other’s company very much.
Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell (38 Years)
Patrick Stewart, also known as Professor X, has a wife 38 years younger than him. Prior to the X-Men franchise, he played the role of Jean-Luc Pickard in Star Trek. It was through a common friend that Stewart met Ozell in 2008. Their relationship continued for five years before they tied the knot in 2013.
Apparently, the only problem they ran into was getting Ozell to meet Stewart’s children, who were all around the same age. Apart from that, it appears that, despite the 38-year age difference, these two lovebirds are getting along just well.
Marques Houston and Miya Dickey (20 Years)
Houston, better known as Mark Evans in the hit television series Sister, Sister, has a twenty-year age gap with his wife. Dickey married Houston when she was just 19 years old. Speculations have circulated about the beginning of their romance because of his wife’s young age.
Marques and Miya met in a group setting through a mutual friend. They share the same religious faith. Some have speculated that Houston and Dickey began dating before she was of legal age. Houston, however, was quick to dispel these claims.
