Hollywood has proven itself to be a place where love conquers all, and age just doesn’t seem to matter. Here’s a look at ten celebrities who tied the knot with a rather large age gap.
10. Pierce Brosnan and Kelly Shaye Smith
After the loss of his first wife, Brosnan was unsure if he would ever find love again. That is, until he met Kelly Shaye Smith. The thirteen-year age gap between the two couldn’t stop them from falling in love. The couple had a luxurious wedding on the beach in Mexico, and currently have two children together.
9. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
When Kutcher and Moore announced their relationship, Kutcher proved himself to be more than an on screen comedian. Being fifteen years younger than Moore didn’t stop Kutcher from becoming step-dad to Moore’s three children.
8. Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim
Cage fell for his third wife Kim, after meeting her at a Korean nightclub in LA. The pair got married in 2004 even though Kim is 20 years younger than Cage.
7. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
With a 22-year age gap between Ford and Flockhart, the couple understands that one cannot help whom they fall in love with. Actress Flockhart, being years younger than Ford, took notice to the shocking age gap.
6. Katherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas
In 2000, Jones and Douglas were married. Although they both share the same birthday of September 25, Jones was born exactly 25 years after Douglas. The age difference has not harmed this couple's relationship.
5. Celine Dion and Rene Angelil
In 1994, Celine Dion married her manager, and the two have remained happy together ever since. Although Angelil is 26 years older than Dion, the couple have settled their lives together and welcomed three children.
4. Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison
Perhaps the most controversial marriage of 2011 was when 16 year old Courtney Stodden married 51 year old Doug Hutchinson. The shocking 35-year old age gap between the two didn’t stop them from making their marriage extremely public. Although the pair was spotted on Couples Therapy in 2012, Stodden has said that nothing can separate her from her soul mate.
3. Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn
In 1992, director Woody Allen began a relationship with Soon-Yi Previn. At the time, Previn was Woody’s partner’s step daughter, making their relationship top news. With the age difference between the two being 35 years, their relationship became even more of a scandal. The couple has been married for 15 years.
2. Clint Eastwood and Dina Ruiz
Eastwood and Ruiz first met in 1993, and were married soon after in 1996. They have one child together, Morgan Eastwood, and parent six other children from Eastwood’s previous marriage. The age difference between the two is 36 years.
1. Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris
On New Year's Eve, 86-year-old Hefner, and 26-year-old Harris tied the knot. The 60-year age difference between the two couldn’t stop them from confirming their love for one another. This is Hefner’s third marriage, and Harris’ first.
