    We can’t help who we fall in love with, right? For these celebrity couples, age is just a number.

    And even though they’ve maybe faced an eyebrow raise or two from the public, they’ve proved that a significant age difference doesn’t have to be a hurdle to relationship bliss.

    Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

    Age Difference: 11 Years

    The gorgeous couple met on the set of “Green Lantern” when Lively, fresh off her “Gossip Girl” success was just 22 and Reynolds was 33 (and married to fellow actress Scarlett Johansson at the time.) They got married in 2012 and, in addition to drawing huge laughs for their social media antics, are now the parents to two daughters, James and Inez.

    Age Difference: 17 Years

    Much to everyone’s surprise, the world’s most famous bachelor finally settled down with the crazy accomplished human rights lawyer who was 17 years his junior. Clooney was 52 when he proposed to then 35-year-old Alamuddin, and the glamorous couple soon got hitched in a star-studded affair in Italy.

    As for married life, Clooney recently shared with Esquire that it 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 jet-setting duo has twins Alexander and Ella.

    Beyonce and Jay-Z

    Age Difference: 12 Years

    Queen Bey and Jay-Z met when she was just 18 and started dating when she was 19 and he was 31. The power couple quickly became the it couple of music and dated for seven years before finally tying the knot in a top-secret ceremony in 2008. They had daughter Blue Ivy in 2012 and twins Sir and Rumi in 2018, and continue to collaborate in both music and life.

    Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra

    Age Difference: 11 Years

    When the youngest member of the Jonas Brothers, now 25, announced his engagement to stunning “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra, 36, the world was left scratching their heads. The newly betrothed celeb couple were apparently connected through friends and once they finally made the leap from just friends to dating, it only took a mere two months months to put a ring on it.

    When dating rumors first started to swirl, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel joked with Chopra about their large age difference by asking “Are you dating Nick Jonas? Isn’t he like, 11 years old?” The actress gamely replied, “I didn’t ask his age. 11? I did not know that. Good to know.”

    David Foster and Katharine McPhee

    Age Difference: 34 Years

    The famed music producer, 68, and former “American Idol” winner, 34, recently announced their engagement and were promptly trolled by strangers judging their whopping 34-year age difference. Foster’s grown daughter, Erin Foster, who is one-year older than McPhee, even jested (lovingly) on social media to the proposal announcement bycommenting, “Mommmyyy.”

    Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy

    Age Difference: 17 Years

    This May-December romance had everyone scratching their heads. Former “Full House” star and bonafide fashion designer Olsen was a mere 25 to the French banker’s 42 when dating rumors started swirling.

    Much to everyone’s surprise, the unexpected duo got hitched in 2015. As to everyone’s comments about their age difference, Olsen once told The Edit, “Everyone has an opinion. I find it’s better to focus on what’s in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other.”

    Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DiRossi
    Ellen DeGeneres, left, and Portia de Rossi arrive at the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on March 21, 2015, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    Age Difference: 15 Years

    Few people seem to know that the popular talk show host and actress have such a large age difference between them. But despite the large age difference, the couple knew they were each other’s soulmates pretty much from first sight when they met in 2004. DeGeneres told People, “I’m so grateful for the love in my life, because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend.”

    The couple tied the knot in 2008 — after the California Supreme Court overturned a ban on same-sex marriage — in a gorgeous private ceremony on their Beverly Hills estate.

    Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
    Camila Alves, left, and Matthew McConaughey arrive at the Oscars on March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 13 Years

    Alright, alright, alright, the heart wants what the heart wants. The free-wheeling actor and former Victoria’s Secret model and TV show host met when Alves was 23 and McConaughey, 36. And, according to McConaughey, he was not looking for love at the time, but when you spot your soulmate, you just know.

    “I wasn’t hunting … Lo and behold, it didn’t take long for fate to have its way. And then, this amazing woman walked across my field of vision and I thought, ‘Who is that?’ And it was Camila,” he told Cigar Aficianado.

    Six years and three kids later, the couple finally got engaged and married in 2012.

    Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
    In this Dec. 9. 2016, photo, actor Michael Douglas and his wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, attend a party at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    Age Difference: 25 Years

    Sometimes it’s just meant to be. Despite their quarter-century age difference, the stars all pointed the way to this surprising romance — both Douglas and Zeta-Jones were born on Sept. 25, 25 years apart. The handsome couple got hitched in 2000 when she was 31 and he was 56, and they have two kids together.

    While their marriage has had its rough spots, with a throat cancer diagnosis for Douglas and Zeta-Jones recently revealing she deals with bipolar disorder, the couple remains as solid as ever.

    Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman
    Megan Mullally, left, and Nick Offerman have been married since 2003.

    Age Difference: 11 Years

    This hilarious duo met when Offerman was 29 and Mullally, 41, and they’ve been married since 2003. While the pair does a lot of work separately, they also tour together and often make guest appearances in each other’s projects. Mullally, for instance, famously played one of Ron Swanson’s exes, Tammy, on Offerman’s TV show “Parks and Recreation.”

    The secret to their marital success? Mullally told GQ: “We have a two-week rule. We’re never apart for more than two weeks. Just not being separated for Jurassic periods of time seems to help.”

    Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
    Harrison Ford, left, and Calista Flockhart attend the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on March 2, 2014, in West Hollywood, Calif.

    Age Difference: 22 Years

    When Hans Solo and Ally McBeal started dating, people couldn’t believe it, and now they’re one of Hollywood’s longest-lasting couples. The unlikely pair started dating back in 2002 when Flockhart was 38 and Ford, 60, and finally wed in 2010. Flockhart was already mom to adopted son Liam when they got together and Ford is now the legal father.

    As for their major age gap? Flockhart tells People she doesn’t even notice. “Sometimes I even say, ‘Wow, I keep forgetting that he’s 22 years older than me.’ It doesn’t factor into our relationship at all. I like the way he looks first thing in the morning. It’s not handsome, it’s more cute. He looks like a little boy.”

    Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas
    Hilaria Baldwin, left, and Alec Baldwin attend the Disney/ABC/Freeform 2018 Upfront Party at Tavern on the Green on May 15, 2018, in New York.

    Age Difference: 26 Years

    Following the nasty and public divorce from Baldwin’s first wife, actress Kim Basinger, the actor found love again with yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas who was 26 years his junior. The couple married in 2012 and are now parents to four children.

    Hilaria claims that their generational differences have impacted how they parent, “He’s a little bit more old school, ‘You’re the mom, you take care of the kids, and then I will come and go, and I will read a book with them every once in a while’ kind of thing.”

    Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
    Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley walk together at LAX in Los Angeles on July, 23 2015.

    Age Difference: 20 Years

    The action star and model met on the set of “Transformers” and started dating in 2010 when Statham was 43 and Huntington-Whitely, just 23. After dating for five years, the couple got engaged in 2016 and recently welcomed their first baby boy, Jack, in June 2017.

    Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson
    Sam Taylor-Johnson, left, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson arrive at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 8, 2017, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    Age Difference: 23 Years

    He was the hot young star of her directorial debut. She was a recent divorcee with two kids. Sounds like the beginnings of an epic love story, right? When then 18-year-old Aaron jumped into a whirlwind romance with his 42-year-old “Nowhere Boy” director Sam, the internet was ablaze with critics.

    Despite the controversial start, the couple defied the odds and got married soon after and have two daughters. Sam once told The Hollywood Reporter, “People like to talk about [our relationship]. I’m like, ‘Yeah, but it works better than my last marriage.’ It’s lasted longer than a lot of my friends’ marriages.”

    As for their massive age difference Aaron revealed to The Times magazine, “I don’t notice it now … we just instinctively gel … People who know me call me Benjamin Button — they think I’m an old soul and she’s a young soul.’”

    Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
    David Cross, left, and Amber Tamblyn arrive at the premiere of "Paint It Black" during the Los Angeles Film Festival at the LACMA Bing Theater on June 3, 2016, in Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 19 Years

    The former “Joan of Arcadia” actress and her comedian husband definitely turned some major heads with their nearly two-decade age difference when news of their romance first broke back in 2012 when Tamblyn was 25 and the “Arrested Development” actor was 44. Fast forward to today, and the couple is still going strong as the proud parents of daughter Marlow.

    Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor
    Holland Taylor, left, and Sarah Paulson arrive at the 21st annual Critics' Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar on Jan. 17, 2016, in Santa Monica, Calif.

    Age Difference: 32 Years

    It’s no surprise that when a then 40-year-old Sarah Paulson began dating 72-year-old Holland Taylor in 2015 that more than a few eyebrows were raised. After meeting at a dinner party 12 years prior, the couple reconnected many years later via (where else?) Twitter, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    But that doesn’t mean that the pair is unaware of the controversy surrounding their coupling. Paulson toldThe Sunday Times, “People look at me and Holland and say, ‘Mommy issues,’ but I parent her as much as she parents me.”

    Bruce Willis and Emma Heming
    In this Feb. 7, 2013 file photo, U.S. actor Bruce Willis, left, and British actress Emma Heming arrive for the British premiere of the film, "A Good Day To Die Hard," at a central London cinema.

    Age Difference: 25 Years

    When iconic action star Bruce Willis first met model Emma Heming at the gym, he didn’t realize he was about to meet the biggest love of his life. The couple tied the knot in 2009 when Willis was 54 and Heming was 31. Despite their 23-year age difference, Heming tells Wmagazine that they have a lot in common: “We’re self-made, we came from the same background, and we went to work and became self-sufficient.”

    Willis, for his part, is still smitten. He toldCloser eight years into married life, “I don’t want to be away from Emma at all. It’s the most singular relationship I’ve ever had in my life.” They now have two daughters, Mabel and Evelyn, and Heming is also stepmom to Willis’ three adult daughters with ex Demi Moore.

    Warren Beatty and Annette Bening
    Annette Bening, left, and Warren Beatty arrive before the 83rd Academy Awards on Feb. 27, 2011, in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 21 Years

    While most people know that Warren Beatty and Annette Bening are one of Hollywood’s most iconic and longest-running power couples, what they may not know is that there’s an over two-decade age difference between the two accomplished actors. Bening first met Beatty on the set of the film “Bugsy” and while she resisted the legendary bachelor’s advances at first, the attraction was apparently too strong to resist.

    As of Beatty, he always knew she was the one. He once famously toldPeople about giving up his playboy ways, “I remember losing interest in the garlic chicken I was eating within 20 seconds… And the garlic chicken had been very good.”

    Over 20 years and four kids later, it appears this couple is here to stay.

    Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster
    Rock star Rod Stewart, left, kisses the hand of model Penny Lancaster, after announcing that they are to marry, in central London March 12, 2005.

    Age Difference: 26 Years

    Once a rock star, always a rock star. Lancaster may have been only 27 and a student photographer when she met superstar Stewart (then 53) in 1999, but that didn’t stop the sparks from flying. The “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” singer and model finally got married in 2007 and have two children together.

    Lancaster shared withYours that she always planned on marrying an older man so the age gap doesn’t phase her: “I actually wanted to be with an older man, someone mature who’d been around the block. He has all the graces of a gentleman and all the respect for a woman that younger men haven’t yet acquired.”

    Donald and Melania Trump
    President Donald Trump, left, claps in response to supporters as he and first lady Melania Trump walk to the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn of the White House on Sept. 15, 2017, in Washington, en route to Andrews Air Force Base.

    Age Difference: 24 Years

    The current President of the United States of America and First Lady have quite the age gap between them, but that should be no surprise. The former “Apprentice” host had always favored much younger women, so when the then 28-year-old Slovenian model first met the 52-year-old businessman back in 1998 in a New York nightclub, she was wary.

    As the now oft-told story goes, Melania resisted Trump’s advances having been made aware of his playboy past and capitulated a week later. They got married in a lavish ceremony in 2005, and their son Baron was born a year later. The supposed secret to their successful marriage? Separate bedrooms — even in the White House.

    Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
    Behati Prinsloo, lerft, and Adam Levine arrive at the New York premiere of "Begin Again" on June 25, 2014, in New York.

    Age Difference: 10 Years

    The Maroon 5 frontman and Victoria’s Secret model started dating when he was 33 and she was 22. They got married in 2014 and now have two children together.

    Levine, who was known for dating lots of models prior to Prinsloo, admitted to Jay Leno that while he never believed in marriage, the right person helped change his mind. “Famous last words: ‘I’ll never get married.’ You know, I still don’t think you have to get married, unless you meet someone that makes you want to marry them. And then you marry them and it’s wonderful.”

    Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer
    "True Blood" cast members Stephen Moyer, left, and Anna Paquin pose together at the premiere for the second season of the HBO show in Los Angeles on June 9, 2009.

    Age Difference: 13 Years

    It’s a tale as old as time: co-stars that fall in love on screen and in real life. This was the case for “True Blood” stars Paquin and Moyer who played the series’ main star-crossed lovers Sookie and Bill and, according to Moyer, fell in love pretty much at first sight.

    He once revealed on “Watch What Happens Now”: “By day three or four — oh, this is going to sound so syrupy — but I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. It was within seconds, really, and it just became a thing.”

    Scott Disick and Sofia Richie
    Scott Disick, 34, holds hands and takes a romantic sunset walk with his new girlfriend Sofia Richie, 19, on September 23, 2017 in Miami Beach, Fla.

    Age Difference: 16 Years

    Kourtney Kardashian’s ex baby daddy and Lionel Richie’s daughter social media icon have been paired together since 2017 when she was just 19 and the father of three was 35. While Richie claims they are “very happy, very lovey dovey,” her famous dad has a different opinion.

    He tellsThe Daily Telegraph, “When you’re 19, you know everything. Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now, it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.”

    Hugh Jackman and Deborra lee-Furness
    Actor Hugh Jackman, left, and Deborra-Lee Furness arrive at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 13, 2013, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    Age Difference: 13 Years

    He’s now 49 and she’s 62, but Jackman still remembers the first day they met like it was yesterday. The two actors met on the set of an Australian TV show that they were both acting in (with her being the much bigger star and he the newbie), and Jackson was immediately struck saying he remembered thinking, “I like this girl.” The two quickly hit it off and have pretty much been together ever since. They have been married for a whopping 21 years — which is a lifetime in Hollywood standards.

    And despite what people may think, their 13=year age difference doesn’t faze the “Wolverine” star in the least. He shared withPeople, “I’m literally the adult in the relationship. She’s just like a little kid. I’m the [one saying], ‘Babe, this is not a legal parking spot.’ ‘Oh, come on, Mr. Goody- Goody.’”

    Dane Cook and Kelsi Taylor
    Dane Cook, left, and Kelsi Taylor met at a game night.

    Age Difference: 27 Years

    He’s 46, she’s 19, and they’re in love. The comedian and singer are definitely one of those May-December romances that has everyone going, “Huh?” The couple apparently met at a game night when Taylor was presumably still a teenager and started officially dating when she was 18.

    In a recent Instagram Story Q & A, Cook even joked about their giant age difference when a fan asked, “What advice do you have to those in age gap relationships?” He responded, “The only thing you have to do is plan that your deaths will be somewhat far apart.”

    Wise words, indeed.

    Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander
    Alicia Vikander, left, and Michael Fassbender have an 11-year age gap.

    Age Difference: 11 Years

    Oscar-winner Vikander and acclaimed “12 Years a Slave” actor Fassbender started dating in 2014 after meeting on the set of their movie “The Light Between Oceans.” But they were so low-key about it that most people hardly knew they were dating, let alone in a serious relationship.

    Per their style, the two secretly tied the knot in 2017. Vikander recently toldVogue about married life, “I feel I’m more happy and content than I’ve ever been.”

    Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed
    Nikki Reed, left, and Ian Somerhalder arrive at the 24th annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards at the Four Seasons Hotel Beverly Hills on Oct. 16, 2017, in Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 10 Years

    They may come from different vampire universes (him from “The Vampire Diaries” and her from the “Twilight” series), but that didn’t stop this genetically blessed couple from wasting no time once they found each other. In 2015, they got engaged after just six months of dating and were married later that year.

    Reed and the 10-year-older Somerhalder often post loving tributes to each other on their respective social media accounts and advocate for numerous environmental and animal rescue causes together. They welcomed their first child, daughter Bodhi Soleil, in 2017.

    Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
    Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, right, and actress Hilarie Burton attend the premiere of the Starz original series "Magic City" at The Academy Theater at Lighthouse International on March 22, 2012 in New York.

    Age Difference: 16 Years

    In case you missed it, “Walking Dead” star and former “One Tree Hill” star Burton are a serious couple. As in married-and-share-a-child couple. If you didn’t know, you wouldn’t be the only one, as the pair have been so super secretive about their entire relationship that many fans don’t even know they’re together.

    The pair were set up by mutual friend and “Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles when Burton was 27 and Morgan 43. They wed in a super low-key non-publicized ceremony in 2014, and people only started suspecting they were married when they started referring to each other as “husband” and “wife” in interviews. Pretty sneaky.

    Daryl Hannah and Neil Young
    Neil Young, left, and Daryl Hannah share a passion for the environment and activism.

    Age Difference: 15 Years

    This recently married couple had quite the auspicious start. The revered folk singer-songwriter was married to his wife Pegi for 36 years when they announced their split in 2014 — followed soon after by news that he was now with Hannah. (You can put two and two together.) And the haters were hating.

    Even Young’s former Crosby, Still, Nash & Young bandmate David Crosby called Hannah “a poisonous predator” at the time (which he later apologized for). The couple reportedly met and bonded over their mutual passion for the environment and activism. As for all the constant negative press, Young claims, “It doesn’t matter. We don’t give a s***. We don’t care because they don’t know what they’re talking about.”

    And his much younger wife (she’s 57 to his 72) appears to have really helped him in the health and lifestyle department by introducing him to pilates and swimming.

    Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron
    On June 2, 2015, Emmanuel Macron, left, and his wife Brigitte Macron pose for photographers as they arrive at the Elysee Palace in Paris.

    Age Difference: 25 Years

    France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, sparked conversation last year during the French election because he’s 25 years younger than his wife, Brigitte. Not only that, but he was a student at a school where she taught.

    But he handled any eyebrow raising with political poise: “If I was 20 years older than my wife, nobody would think for a single second that we couldn’t be legitimately together,” he told Le Parisien. “It’s because she is 20 years older than me that a lot of people say, ‘this relationship can’t be tenable, it can’t be possible.'”

    Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox
    Megan Fox, left, and Brian Austin Green have three children together.

    Age Difference: 13 Years

    Despite their 13-year age difference “Transformers” star Megan Fox and former “Beverly Hills 90210” actor Brian Austin Green go way back. Fox was only 18 at the time when she met 30-year-old Green. They’ve now been married 13 years and are parents to three children together: Bodhi, Noah and Journey.

    “Marriage is hard,” Austin Green told People. “It’s work I think for anyone. I think when you get to the point like we have, where you have kids and you’ve been married for a while and we’ve been together for a long time, it’s — you just take it day by day.”

    Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy
    Felicity Huffman, left, and William H. Macy arrive at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 17, 2018, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 12 Years

    One of Hollywood’s longest running couples have been together for a lot longer than most people realize. While they’ve been married for an impressive 21 years, they had already been dating on and off for 15 years before that.

    Huffman met Macy back in the ’80s when they were both working actors in New York, and despite him proposing multiple times throughout their courtship, it took a while for her to finally say yes. She once told Tribune News, “I was so scared of marriage that I thought I would’ve preferred to step in front of a bus.”

    Huffman and Macy wed  on Sept. 6, 1997.  They welcomed their first baby, daughter Sophia Grace, three years later. Then in 2002, they celebrated the birth of their second daughter, Georgia Grace.

    Steve Martin and Anne Stringfield
    Steve Martin, left, is 27 years older than his wife, Anne Stringfield.

    Age Difference: 27 Years

    Funny man Steve Martin, 72, met his current wife, journalist Anne Stringfield, 50, 11 years ago when she was a fact-checker for The New Yorker and had to call the actor regarding a piece he wrote for the publication. They were phone friends for a while, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    The May-December couple tied the knot in 2007 and welcomed a baby girl in 2012. So, how does it feel to become a dad for the very first time at the age of 67? Martin tells the Daily Telegraph, “Oh, it’s fantastic — you have all the time in the world. You’re all set and secure in life, and you’re not building your career, so you have a lot of time.”

    Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
    Paige Butcher, left, and Eddie Murphy attend the SNL 40th Anniversary Special at Rockefeller Plaza in New York.

    Age Difference: 18 Years

    The comedian, 57, and Australian model/actress, 39, have been together since 2012.

    And, as of press time, Butcher is currently pregnant with Murphy’s 10th child. The couple are already parents to a 2-year-old daughter, while Murphy also has eight other children with four other women.

    Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin
    Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin arrive at the 2016 LACMA Art + Film Gala on Oct. 29, 2016 in Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 22 Years

    The former Rocky famously met his current wife of 21 years in a Beverly Hills restaurant when he was a 42-year-old movie star and she, a 20-year-old model. His youngest child from his first marriage was only eight-years younger than Flavin.

    But fast-forward many, many years later, and they’re still happily married and parents to three daughters: Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet.

    Viola Davis and Julius Tennon
    Julius Tennon, left, and Viola Davis have a 12-year age difference between them.

    Age Difference: 12 Years

    The “How to Get Away With Murder” actress wed actor/producer Julius Tennon in 2003. The two adopted their daughter Genesis in 2011. Davis once revealed that she met Tennon three weeks after praying for a husband. She told Page Six, “I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before. Three-and-a-half weeks later, I met my husband.”

    Mel Gibson and Rosalind Ross
    Rosalind Ross, left, and Mel Gibson arrive at the LA Premiere of "Daddy's Home 2" at the Regency Village Theatre on Nov. 5, 2017, in Los Angeles.

    Age Difference: 35 Years

    The Hollywood actor is trying to make a comeback, and who better to have by his side than his girlfriend, a former equestrian vaulter 34 years his junior and mother of his ninth child? Gibson, 62, and Ross, 27, have definitely faced their share of criticism about their relationship, especially considering that Gibson’s first child is 37. But Gibson isn’t fazed.

    He tellsThe Mirror, “Regarding age and relationships, it’s just a number. She is an adult, and we dig each other. It might cause a problem and one has a trepidation about these things, but it’s working out great. She is a really special person.”

    Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz
    Model Heidi Klum, left, and musician Tom Kaulitz poses for photographers upon arrival at the amfAR, Cinema Against AIDS, benefit at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, during the 71st international Cannes film festival, in Cap d'Antibes, southern France, on May 17, 2018.

    Age Difference: 17 Years

    The “America’s Got Talent” judge and model, 45, has a history of dating younger men, but people’s tongues were still wagging when she stepped out with her latest man, Tokio Hotel musician Tom Kaulitz, who’s 28.

    Klum recently revealed toIn Style that the 17-year age difference doesn’t faze them in the least, but since their romance has become public, the question of her age has been “shoved in [her] face” more often. Luckily, the stylish mama of four has a zen approach to all the critics: “You have to just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think because worrying is only going to give you more wrinkles.”

    The 27-year age gap wasn’t the only reason this couple had a rocky start.

Walsh later revealed to Oprah, “I’m not proud of the way we started out because he was in a marriage.”

    He tells iNews,“I keep doing the math and keep extrapolating where they’re going to be and where I’m going to be. And when I buy a watch, I wonder who’s going to get it.”

    Ozell understands why people may be shocked at their enormous age gap, but, to them, age is but a number. “He is so youthful and I guess I’m kind of an old worry wart, so we bridge the gap,” she says. “It doesn’t come up much. He’s in better shape than me, which infuriates me.”
