There is something so magical about love. True love does not base affection on silly things like material things or physical appearances. Age is also just a number, for people who fall hard in love with one another. Celebrities are all humans too, as far as we know, so even they fall in love time and again. It is certainly nice to see that even the most famous faces find love in a strange place or in this case, at a strange age. You would not believe some of the Hollywood couples that have such a huge number of years apart in their age. If you think about it, they really are an inspiration to unconventional relationships where their love is not defined by the difference that is there in their age. Here are some of the most adorable celebrity couples that prove that age is indeed just a number and that love is all about devotion, communication, and sparks.
George and Amal Clooney
Even since they tied the know in 2014, these two have become such a wonderful sight to see as a blissfully married couple. Little did both know that their fateful meeting one day at a charity event would lead them to marry each other after just a year. George Clooney is actually way older than Amal. The two share an age gap of 17 years but does not seem to cause any issue in their relationship because of their devotion to one another. Their wedding took place in the beautiful city of Venice in Italy back in 2014. George was a rather old groom who got married to Amal, 36, at 53 years of age.

The two dated for a while and by 2015, they felt that it was time they tied the knot. Johnny is 23 years older than Amber. This would clearly be an issue for most people but the two were determined to make things work. The pair got married at a time when Amber was 28 and Johnny was 51 years of age. They soon found out that they were not, in fact, the person for each other and called it quits with the couples’ divorce finalized by 2017. They had a very nasty split where Amber accused Johnny of being verbally and physically abusive to her, hampering Johnny’s beloved public image.
Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z
Beyoncé is one of the most powerful women in the field of entertainment who even released a song that tells a man that she can replace him in a minute. In reality, though she fell deeply in love with her now husband Shawn Carter who is also a powerful force in the music industry. We all love and admire Shawn as a rap icon better known as Jay Z. When we look at the couple it is quite hard to believe that Jay Z is actually 12 years older than his wife Beyonce. They got married in 2008 and have expanded their budding family by 3. Their first daughter Blue was born, followed by their twins Rumi and Sir Carter, where each birth made headlines all over the world.

They have undeniable chemistry and together appear on red carpets to make everyone else green with jealousy.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
The popular Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey has always been a ladies man who is adored by women all over the world. So it comes as no surprise that when he met the Victoria Secret model Camila Alves, she would ultimately fall for him as well. The two became quite a serious thing after a span of being romantic with each other. After meeting each other in 206, they have never strayed away from each other, becoming closer each year. The model and actor share an age gap of around 14 years but it has not stopped them from becoming each other’s one and only. On Christmas Day of 2011, Matthew proposed and the two got engaged followed by a wedding the very next year. The couple now live in Austin, Texas and have now welcomed 3 kids into their family. They certainly prove that age is no issue when it comes to love.

Even though there had always been a big age difference in between them, they made their relationship seem very intact. Brad Pitt is now a 52-year-old man while Angelina has crossed her 40s in the recent years. They two have 6 kids together where 3 are biological. After trying to mend their dying marriage, they decided to get a divorce instead in 2016. They realized their difference was creeping in too much.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
When you take one of the most successful actors in Hollywood and one of the sweetest actresses together, what do you get? The ideal Hollywood couple. That was what happened when Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes dated each other. After dating each other for a long 7 years, the couple made news everywhere again after deciding to tie the knot back in 2006. Even though Tom was 17 years older than Katie, the couple seemed to make it work and professed their love for one another everywhere they went. The two had a marriage that ran for 6 years and was clearly so in love for the most part. They soon gave birth to their adorable baby girl Suri following their marriage. After trying to stay together, their problems got the best of them and so they divorced each other in the year 2012.
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim
Nicolas Cage as we all know has starred in a string of Hollywood hits for a very long time. Before waitress Alice Kim ever came into his life, he was already a two-time divorcee who has had his fair share of love loss. After they met, the two were instantly head over heels for each other and by 2004 the couple was already married. Their Californian wedding took place at the ranch where the reception was kept very simple and classy with no big fuss like other typical celebrity weddings. The public was really concerned as Nicolas was a little too old for Alice. Alice is actually 20 years younger to her husband and makes some people very uncomfortable. Their wedding took place when Alice was just 20 years old and Nicolas was a fully grown 40-year-old man. Following their marriage, the couple welcomed a son named Kal-El. Luck was not on their side as they eventually separated by 2016.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have been a powerful Hollywood couple for a very long time. They got married back in 2000. Although many of their peers have split up and found another lover very quickly, the two have remained loyal to each other for an impressive time span now. The couple even shares the same date of birth and might even be a factor that makes them such a match for each other. There has always been that age issue people have had with this particular couple.Michael Douglas is now a 72-year-old man which means that Catherine is younger to him by a staggering age of 25 years. Catherine has jokingly stated that they keep their own separate bathrooms and is the reason why they have lasted for so long. Could this really be the reason for their successful marriage?
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy
One twin from the uber-successful Olsen twins is also dating a fairly senior man for her age. She is, in fact, dating a man who is 17 years her senior. Olivier Sarkozy is the ex-French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s half-brother. He is no movie star nor is he a rockstar. Their age gap did not bother the two of them and soon Mary-Kate and Olivier decided to get hitched in 2015. At their time of marriage, Mary-Kate was a 29-year-old while Oliver was 46. In November 2016, there was a shocking discovery that leads the whole world to scratch their heads. The twins were spotted on a double-date with their men and were quite evident that they indeed had a thing for older men. Have they been playing us all these years?
Ashley Olsen and Richard Sachs
After Ashley Olsen revealed that she was actually in a relationship with Richard Sachs, it caused many people to be very surprised. The two of them seem very happy with each other despite the fact that Richard is 28 years older than his partner. Maybe because the twins have always been under such a microscope, Ashley and Richard decided to keep a majority of their relationship very lowkey maintaining a low profile. But then since the public is ever so curious about what the twins are up to, their relationship made news after the twins were on a double-date with their beaus. Although Mary-Kate got married, Ashley’s case was different as she and Richard split up in 2017.
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have become one of the most adorable couples we have in Hollywood these days. After they started their relationship in 2011, the pair has become closer and closer. Jason soon proposed to Olivia after two years of dating in 2013. The couple has not revealed any news of marriage but all seems to be quite well-judging from how they treat each other in public. Although they seem like any other couple, the two share an age difference of 9 years between them. Olivia Wilde is actually 33 years old while Jason Sudeikis is now 42. This does not, however, seem to create any problem for the couple. Since being together, the couple has had two kids, a boy, and a girl, named Alexander and Daisy, respectively.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Even though this couple has called it quits a long time back, when they were together, they were undoubtedly the talk of the town. Every red carpet they attended or every trip they went to was worth swooning over for the audience/public. However Katy Perry and Russell Brand actually had a lot of years in between them that no one actually paid attention to. The two had a shocking age difference between that almost hi the decade mark. Russell is actually 42 years old and Katy is very close to getting 33. They enjoyed 2 years of blissful marriage after getting married back in 2010. Distance caused them to split so it is a good thing to know that it was not their age.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
In 2008 Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey shocked everyone when they decided to tie the knot. It was such a lovely sight to see as the couple enjoyed 8 years of a happy married life. But then in 2016, the couple decided it was time to throw in the towel. Most people were really concerned about the couple’s age difference that was a little unlikely for ordinary couples. At the time of their wedding, Mariah was 38 years old and Nick was just 28. As you can see the couple has a decade in between their ages. They were good for each other for a while but soon separated in 2014 and by 2016, the couple finalized their divorce papers. During their relationship, Nick starred in several music videos of Mimi.

People became really stunned to hear that the couple had a 22-year difference between each other. Harrison is now 74 years of age while Flockhart just turned 52. Did this age thing ever bother the two? Heck no. They are so chill about their age gap that they even joke about it themselves. The couple knows that age is just a digit but that love is all about commitment and communication.
Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble
This couple is again one of the most scandalous couples to arise in the recent past. Kris Jenner has actually revealed that she and Corey Gamble do not actually have plans of getting married at all. In fact, they have revealed that they see this pairing as a pragmatic one than a romantic one. But this did not stop people from voicing their opinions on their relationship that has a very large age difference. Kris is now 61 years while Corey is 36. This would mean that there is 25 years gap between them. They have been together as a couple since 2014 and show no signs of stopping as of now.
Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor
Sarah Paulson found her big break after starring in all of the series of American Horror Story. People are often shocked to hear that she is actually a lesbian and is in a romantic relationship with Hollywood actress Holland Taylor.

Kate Beckinsale and Matt Rife
Two years ago, the gorgeous English actress Kate Beckinsale and her then-husband Len Wiseman decided to get a divorce after staying together for 12 years as a married couple. Kate is an attractive woman who is one of the most desired women in Hollywood, so it is not such a shocker to see her get the attention of many suitors. After diving into the dating pool again, she met Matt Rife who is an actor/model trying to get his big break. It was certainly a very shocking news to read as Kate is way older than him. Matt is a 21 years of age while Kate is in her mid-40s. He is actually just 3 years elder to Kate’s daughter. They did not let their 23 year age difference bother them and dated anyways. But, as fate would have it, they were not the perfect match for one another as they called it quits by August of 2017.
Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse
This couple is so precious that no one would ever guess that there was ever a big age difference between them. However, Bradley Cooper was 38 when he started dating Suki Waterhouse who was just 21 at the time. They were happy for a while but soon ended things in 2015. They are both so attractive and charismatic that it leads many people to root for them to save their relationship.

This did not stop them from being devoted to one another and so they are very happy together till date. He is known for his talent as a comedic actor so maybe that keeps her satisfied right?
Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell
Sunny Ozell and Patrick Stewart might be the couple with the biggest age gap in this list.As Patrick is 77 Sunny is 38, just calculate the age gap that separates these two.
