Celeb Couples With Major Age Differences
There’s a saying that goes like this – “We can’t help who we fall in love with.” And for these celebrity couples, age is just a number.
And although they’ve maybe faced an eyebrow raise or two from the general public, they’ve proven that a glaring difference in age doesn’t have to be an obstacle to a good relationship.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
Age difference: 17 years
When the news broke about the world’s most notable bachelor finally made a decision to settle down with the very much accomplished human rights lawyer who was 17 years his junior, it took everyone by the storm. Clooney was 52 when he proposed to then 35-year-old Alamuddin, and the captivating couple soon got married in a star-studded ceremony in Italy.
As for their life after marriage, Clooney shared with Esquire that it really doesn’t get much better: “There were all the jokes and the bits and I get all that stuff, but I couldn’t be happier right now.”
And now the beautiful duo has twins, Alexander and Ella.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Age difference: 11 years
The beautiful couple met while on the set of “Green Lantern” when Lively, fresh from her “Gossip Girl” fame was just 22 and Reynolds was 33 (and married then to fellow actress Scarlett Johansson.) The couple got married in 2012 and, other than getting huge laughs for their social media shenanigans, are now the parents to two beautiful daughters, James and Inez.
