In Hollywood, true love sometimes lasts only as long as the latest news cycle. But for some celebrity couples, the challenges of maintaining a solid relationship amid tabloid rumors only makes their bond stronger — especially if their age differences become a point of discussion.
Celebrity pairings like Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy or Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas caught plenty of attention for their age differences (17 and 25 years, respectively) when they first started dating, but proved all the naysayers wrong when they married. Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor have demonstrated that age is just a number by speaking glowingly of their love for one another in the press and largely keeping their relationship out of the public sphere.
Even celebs like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, who ultimately split in 2013, defied the odds by being married for eight years despite close media scrutiny and tabloid headlines abound. Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart, similarly, dated on and off for five years before finally splitting for good in 2016.
Here, we’ve rounded up Hollywood’s couples with the biggest age differences between them — some who have since split, and others who are still going strong.
