“Age is just a number,” as the saying goes. If two adults truly love one and other, a substantial age gap won’t interfere with romance and passion. While this may be easy to say, does it really work in real life? Well, many celebrities couples are proof that age gaps are just another hurdle to jump over.
However, what happens when the age difference is nearly four decades? Well, it still doesn’t seem to bother some celebs at all! Years don’t matter when it comes to these Hollywood May-December romances. From just over a decade between Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet to the almost five-decade difference between Dick Van Dyke and wife Arlene Silver, these celebrities have found their perfect match in partners, regardless of age gaps.
1. Annette Bening and Warren Beatty, 22 years
Actors Annette Bening, 60, and Warren Beatty, 81, have proved that they are in it for the long haul. The couple first met back in 1990 while shooting the film Bugsy. While filming, Beatty invited Bening to have lunch together. “I remember losing interest in the garlic chicken I was eating within 20 seconds,” Beatty recalled. Afterward, he told director Barry Levin, “I love her, and I’m going to marry her.”
Then, just two years later, Bening and Beatty tied the knot! “He’s 21 years older than I am and we’ve always been at different stages of life,” Bening told the U.K’s Times. Despite their age gap, the couple has been together for over two decades. Also, they share four beautiful children!
