How much do YOU think age matters in a relationship?
Robert Pattinson has a new lady who’s old enough to be his mother — but her role in his life is anything but that! It’s being reported Juliette Binoche has been cast as the 24-year-old actor’s lover in his upcoming film, Cosmopolis, and she’s a shocking 22 years his senior. However, before you balk at the idea, check out these nine other on-screen and off couples who have made love work — even when their ages didn’t exactly line up!
Miley Cyrus & John Mayer:
Well, if you’re asking us, we think age matters a teensy bit…especially when it comes to people who are 18-years-old, like Miley Cyrus. The former Disney queen was spotting smacking on John Mayer, 33, at Grammy parties in Los Angeles. That’s a 15 year age difference and John’s a total player…gross!
Taylor Swift & Jake Gyllenhaal:
Swiftenhaal, as we fondly referred to this short-lived couple, were an easier act to swallow than Miss Cyrus and Player Mayer. Taylor, 21, and Jake, 30, both seem like level-headed and grounded individuals, so their nine year age gap wasn’t TOO upsetting. That said, it was weird to see Jake go from an older woman (Reese Witherspoon) to someone who was barely legal to drink.
Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn:
They’ve denied their relationship, but plenty of sources have dished about this interesting new item. Scarlett, 26, is 24 years younger than Sean, who’s 50. Although Scar Jo has acted well beyond her years since she was a teen, we can’t help but get a little grossed out by this rumored new combo.
Eduardo Cruz & Eva Longoria:
Eva, 35, wasted no time getting back in the saddle after her divorce from Tony Parker! The TV beauty has been getting hot and heavy with Penelope Cruz‘s 25-year-old brother, Eduardo, since meeting him at a Christmas party. The age difference? A measly 10 years.
Kayte Walsh & Kelsey Grammer:
Within a matter of months, Kelsey Grammer, 55, divorced his wife of more than 10 years, Camille, and traded her in for a younger model — Kayte Walsh, who’s only 29 years old. The head over heels new couple is so excited to be together, they’re getting married in mere weeks, which was less than a moth after Kelsey’s divorce was finalized. Nasty!
Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore:
We have to admit we have a soft spot in our hearts for this handsome couple. For the first few years, it was weird to see Ashton, now 33, with Demi, now 48 — especially because she has daughters who aren’t too much younger than him! However, now we’ve seen the light and are totally behind the 15 year age gap between these two.
