While we’re all accustomed to seeing male celebs marry much younger women – so much so in fact that it’s one of Hollywood’s running jokes, the idea of things working the other way round seems to be far less common. Yet it’s now 2015, and in the name of equality it’s worth looking at the cases where things worked the other way round – and a male celebrity married an older woman. In many cases these relationships actually seem to have lasted longer than your average Tinseltown romance – so to honour those who’ve found love by discovering that age ain’t nothing but a number – here are 10 male celebrities who married (or in one case is about to marry) older women.
1. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Ashton and Demi were the poster couple of the male female age gap, mainly because when they got together Ashton was still genuinely playing high school frat-boys and Demi was Hollywood royalty, having been a star since the 1980s. Despite there being a 15 year age gap between the pair it seemed like a lot more when they tied the knot in 2005. The pair were married for 7 years though, pretty good going by Hollywood standards, before filing for divorce in 2012. Interestingly, Moore has experienced both sides of an age gap – as her surname comes from her 1980 marriage to singer Freddie Moore, who was 12 years her senior.
