Celebrity Women Who Dated Younger Men

Proving age is nothing but a number

Madonna and Jesus Luz

Madge: 51

Jesus: 23

=28 years apart!

Apparently, age proved an issue showing the cracks where they had “nothing in common”. The pair called it quits after a year.

Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble

Kris: 61

Corey: 36

=25 years apart!

Some say it is more “business” than romance, but three years on they “sometimes seem fine and sometimes not great” an unknown source revealed to PeopleSounds like true love to us.

Sam Taylor-Johnson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Sam: 50

Aaron: 26

=24 years apart!

The couple to smash the chit-chat that 24 years is to big-a difference, their love shows it going from strength to strength, even after having two children together. They fell in love back in 2008, and at the time Sam was 42 and Aaron just 18! We love these two breaking the status quo. *All the feels*



Halle Berry and Alex Da Kid



=16 years apart!

A pretty new pairing on the relationship spectrum, but as smitten as ever. The London music producer recently referred to Berry as “my balance” on his insta post confirming the relationship. 

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher

(When they met):

Demi: 41

Ashton: 25

=16 years apart!

They kept tongues wagging for years, and for so long were the ultimate cougar + toy boy match. But sadly six years later, after much speculation, scandals and cheating rumours, the pair finalised their divorce. 

Tina Turner and Erwin Bach

Tina: 73

Erwin: 57

=16 years apart!

What’s love got to do with it? Well everything, obviously! Long-term lovers were together for 27 years before tying the knot in 2013 and have been super loved up since.

Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman

Deborra: 62

Hugh: 48

= 12 years apart!

One of our favourite Aussie couples, the actors have been married since 1996 and share two children together, Oscar and Ava. And Hugh’s not one to hold back with the lovey-dovey remarks even after all this time, referring to Furness as: “The greatest woman alive” he told the Daily Mail. 


Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne

Cheryl: 34

Liam: 24

= 10 years apart!

From Cole to Fernandez-Versini to Cole again, Chezza found love with ex 1-Directioner Liam Payne back in Feb 2016. And only 8 months later, they announced the pitter-patter of little feet was on the way! They first met when Liam auditioned for the X Factor UK in 2008 as a fresh faced popstar wannabe. 

Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana

Janet: 51

Wissam: 41

= 10 years apart

Earlier this year, this pair confirmed their marriage was over. And then… they had a baby (as you do) defying the talk around the risks at her age. But that sadly was still not enough for them to make a go of it. 

Shakira and Gerard Piqué

Shakira: 40

Gerard: 30

=10 years apart

Meeting on the set of the ‘Waka Waka’ music video for the Football World Cup back in 2010, the pair’s relationship blossomed and they now have two sons together, Milan and Sasha.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon


Nick: 25 (when met)

=10 years apart

The Butterfly Queen and Nick Cannon were dubbed one of the weirdest couples ever, it being no secret that Mariah is one of the biggest divas of all time. And maybe that was part of the reason for their split in 2014, after having twins Moroccan and Monroe together in 2011. 

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer

Jen: 39

John: 31

=8 years apart

It all began back in 2008, and in the space of their fiery romance, this couple broke up numerous times. Sometimes we thought it was because they were at “different places in their lives”, but apparently, Aniston ended the relationship due to Mayer being “obsessed with twitter” she told The TelegraphBut despite the split, Mayer’s cathartic process with closure produced his song “Shadow Days” which is apparently a “Farewell Letter” to the actress.

Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake


JT: 28

=8 years apart

 They brought sexyback as an item but four years was all the airtime that this pair got. They were another instance of the backlash of “the age difference” but they publicly claimed the publicity never bothered them. 

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling

Eva: 43

Ryan: 36

=7 years apart

It was a “where did they come from” moment when Mendes and Gosling announced their relationship in 2011. They are one of Hollywood’s most illustrious pairings, and (fair play to them), like to keep themselves to themselves. But we do know that they have two daughters together, Esmerelda and Amada Lee.

Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel

Miranda: 34

Evan: 27

=7 years apart

These newly-weds put on a show-stopper wedding this year, when Aussie model Kerr walked down the aisle to the Snapchat mogul. They met just 18 months ago and Kerr shares a five year old son with ex husband, Orlando Bloom.

Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth

Elsa: 40

Chris: 33

=7 years apart

One half of our fave Aussie bros has been with his Spanish model wife for seven years. They are regularly spotted out on Byron’s Coast and have three children together.
