Age Gaps in Hollywood Are Just Getting Wider

Sofia Richie just got a birthday present from her boyfriend, Scott Disick. Richie is celebrating turning 21 this weekend, while Reality TV star is 15 years older. Guess what? That’s nowhere near scandalous and this summer is full of age gaps, some quite disturbing.

Leonardo DiCaprio had a lovely European vacation with a model-girlfriend. Leo always dates models, which is fine, but the strange thing is that he’s getting older and they are getting younger. Case in point: Leo is now 44, Camila Morrone is 22. Still better than his coworker, Dennis Quaid.

Dennis Quaid ended his relationship with 32-year-old Santa Auzina and got a younger model. He was caught vacationing in Italy, with Laura Savoie, who is 26. The actor is 65. You do the math, or don’t, because it’s gross!

Age may be just a number, but age gaps are about hobbies, music, pop culture, much more than just being born in a certain decade. Richard Gere, now 69, married Alejandra Silva last year and they welcomed a child in February. Spanish beauty is only 36, so the family photo looks pretty awkward: a baby, a mommy, and a grandpa.

What is it with actors and age gaps that aren’t easy to grasp? Comedian Dane Cook was in his forties when he began dating model Kelsi Taylor, who was still a teenager when they got together. This is just creepy, it may as well be illegal.

Still, the absolute winner (if we can call them that) is Mick Jagger. The frontman of The Rolling Stones and ballerina Melanie Hamrick have a child together and yes, he is in his 70s, while she is almost 45 years younger.

Are only the men “bad ones”? Nope. We have rare cases of famous women dating much younger men. Demi and Ashton were married but we all know how that ended (hint: he cheated with several women, most likely at once). But, Aaron Taylor Johnson and his 23 years older wife Sam Taylor-Johnson have been married since 2012. They are still going strong, despite the age gap. But, they do talk about it occasionally, which we rarely hear from situations in which men are the much older ones.

What’s the professional verdict on age gaps and celebrity couples? Research has found that the age gap between a 20-year-old and a 40-year-old can cause more issues than the gap between, say, a 50-year-old and a 70-year-old. But, for famous and rich people it is not as simple.

Younger people tend to date older when they have something to gain, especially when we are talking about powerful men and good-looking, young women. The women make men feel young, while men have connections and yes, money. Being emotionally involved with someone from the Hollywood A list crowd is stressful enough and even with genuine emotions, the media pressure will most likely wear you down.

The latest example comes from Jamie Foxx. Even though he stated he’s not dating 21-year-old singer Sela Vave, she got called every name in the book. Why? Because some shipped the actor and Katie Holmes so hard, that every woman who comes near Foxx is now a homewrecker and a gold-digger.

Did you ever date someone significantly older or younger? If you were a celebrity, would you date someone outside of your age group, despite the media and fans? Are we being ageist? Drop a comment, this is a hot topic, so we wanna hear from you!
