12+ Celebs Who Dated Much Younger Men

It's not all that uncommon to see older men dating younger women, especially in Hollywood.

But how often do older women date younger men? Quite often, it turns out.

While you've probably heard of Aaron Taylor-Johnson from his work as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, his wife is a celebrity all her own.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas married in 2018 and 2019. They had three different ceremonies to celebrate their marriage, and also they're the most beautiful couple ever. Thanks.

Age difference: 15 years.

Oh hey, the OG unapologetic age difference couple.

When Demi Moore started dating Ashton Kutcher, people side-eyed their 15-year age difference. Which is wild, because George Clooney had been doing that same thing for years...but I digress.

They divorced in 2013.

Robin Wright

Let's file this one under, "couples you fully didn't know once happened."

The two dated back when flared pants and popped collars were a thing, aka 2002.

Ryan Gosling clearly has a thing for women older than he is, and I salute him. The man has good taste. The two got together in 2011, and now share two children.

Before settling down with A-Rod, Jennifer Lopez pulled a classic J-Lo and got together with one of her backup dancers.
