While it is common for most couples to have a few years age difference, there are some who have a couple of decades between them and are still going strong. Take a look at Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas. The actor is 25 years senior to his ladylove but despite the generational gap, they get along like a house on fire. Here’s a look at some others who showed that when it comes to matters of the heart, numbers don’t matter.
David Foster & Katharine McPhee
The 68-year-old music producer, who has been married four times, with his divorce to Yolanda Hadid coming through only last year, has found love again in 34-year-old singer Katharine McPhee. David proposed to her recently while on vacation in Italy. Katharine took to social media to share the happy news. “He did it at the top of this mountain in Anacapri. Totally dark, only stars,” she wrote.
Scott Disick & Sofia Richie
Scott Disick, 35, has been spotted with Lionel Richie’s daughter Sofia, 19, since May last year. Though they first claimed to be just friends, the pair soon confirmed their romance on Instagram. Despite the 15-year age gap, and Scott already having three kids with Kourtney Kardashian, the two have been inseparable.
Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart
Harrison Ford 75, has been dating 53-year-old actress Calista Flockhart since 2002. In 2010, the couple sealed the deal with a low-key wedding. Calista once said in an interview that the 22-year age gap is a “non-issue”. “The truth is, I sometimes feel very much older than Harrison,” she said.
Sarah Paulson & Holland Taylor
Sarah Paulson, 43, has been with Holland Taylor, 75, for a little more than two years now. The couple who have a 32 year age gap have raised many eyebrows, but Sarah dismisses them. “If anyone wants to spend any time thinking I’m strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that’s their problem,” she said.
Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas
This duo surprised everyone when they first debuted as a couple, but have now been happily married for 18 years and are parents of two. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have a 25-year-age gap. Last year on their anniversary, Catherine took to Instagram to share, “17 years ago today, I said ‘I do’ to my best friend and father of our two-and-a- half-month-old son. Thought it could never get better than that day, but it did. Happy anniversary darling, Michael.”
Aaron & Sam Taylor-Johnson
Aaron, 28, has been with Sam, 51, since 2009. The couple, who tied the knot in 2012 and have two daughters together, admitted it was tough in the beginning with the media scrutiny. She said, “If I gave a second thought to other people, I would be the unhappiest person, probably still in a miserable marriage. People like to talk about it. I’m like, ‘Yeah, but it works better than my last marriage.’”
Jason Statham & Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Jason Statham, who will turn 51 soon, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley 31, have made it work despite the 20-year gap. The couple recently welcomed their first child together, son Jack Oscar Statham.
