Age is clearly not a barrier when Hollywood actors fall in love

Love must be blind. After all, Hollywood personalities don't seem to bother themselves with 'moral' questions when they fall for someone — on the set or outside.

Unlike Bollywood couples, most of whom don't share a vast age gap, it seems their American counterparts tend to fall for someone much older or younger to them. hitlist lists the names of those from the film industry who share a huge age gap with their partners:

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively

Age gap:
11 years
Lowdown: This Canadian hunk certainly believes in the nuptial institution, doesn't he? When his marriage to Scarlett Johansson ended after barely completing three years, he immediately started dating Lively, whom he met on the sets of Green Lantern (2011). Within a year, they got married and are currently settled in New York City.

Jay-Z and Beyonce

Lowdown: Arguably the most powerful couple in the music industry and even in Hollywood, are reportedly going through a rough patch in their marriage. So much so that even divorce rumours are floating around that the two are staying in separate rooms during their ongoing tour.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Toni Garrn

Age gap:

Lowdown: The Inception star still has two things missing from his resume: an Oscar and a wife. Regardless, that doesn't keep the self-proclaimed Don Juan from hopping from one young supermodel to another. His current flame is 22 years old.

Al Pacino and Lucila Sola

Age gap:
39 years
Lowdown: Although this screen legend never married, he has three kids from two previous partners. His current ladylove was a three-year-old kid in Argentina when he earned his first Academy nomination.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy

Age gap:

Lowdown: Remember that cute girl from Full House? She's 28 and quite a choosy actress now. Intriguingly, she has made it a point to date men who are not from the industry. And her fiance turns out to be a French banker.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones

Lowdown: The 69-year-old American actor and the 44-year-old Welsh actress — who happen to share their birthday as well — have had their highs and lows in their over 13 years of marriage.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart

Age gap:

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

Age gap:

Lowdown: This stunning couple met on the sets of the 2011 screen adaptation The Rum Diary. The two are set to marry before the end of 2014. Interestingly, the J-factor has already crept into their relationship with Depp reportedly uncomfortable with Heard cozying up with co-star James Franco.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin

Age gap:
17 years
Lowdown: When news broke out that Clooney has finally decided to settle down, the overhyped reaction was quite palpable given his commitment-phobic image. Perhaps he was seeking someone outside the glam world. Nevertheless, the once most-eligible-bachelor is slated to marry a British lawyer of Lebanese origin.

Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Age gap:

Lowdown: For the record, Statham likes to keep it english. And this not only applies for his accent in films but also his taste in women. After a seven-year-long relationship with model Kelly Brook, he dated the British-born model Sophie Monk. He's dating 27-year-old British model, Rosie Huntington Whiteley.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Age gap:

Lowdown: Going by A-Jolie's track record, she certainly has a thing for older men. However, none of her past relationships lasted this long nor bore her any children. Brangelina has been together for almost a decade now. Along with teaming up for on an upcoming experimental film, they are taking turns to raise a brood of six kids.

Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas

Age gap:
26 years
Lowdown: Baldwin has walked the aisle thrice and was earlier hitched to the gorgeous Kim Bassinger. Unfortunately, their high-profile marriage lasted only nine years. Later, Baldwin dated a slew of beauties. And in 2012, the American actor married the 30-year-old Spanish yoga instructor. As of today, the couple has a daughter who turns one in two weeks.

Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse

Age gap:
17 years
Lowdown: Cooper's ex-wife, actress Jennifer esposito, once accused him of being emotionally absent during their short-lived marriage. In that regard, it'd be interesting to know what 22-year-old Waterhouse has to say on the subject. Besides, the British model is said to have found her “love of my life” in the twice Oscar-nominated actor.

Raising eyebrows
Woody Allen
Since 1969, there hasn't been a year that a Woody Allen's film — which he either wrote or directed — didn't release. That arguably makes the 78-year-old the hardest-working filmmaker around. However, irrespective of his professional achievements, his relationship with his 43-year-old wife was initially deemed inappropriate. After all, he was in a relationship with Soon-Yi Previn's mother, Mia Farrow, before he broke up with her. Allen and Previn have been happily married for 17 years now.

 

Reverse order
It's not like only actors are older than their respective spouses. In some cases, elder actresses are engaged to younger actors, too:

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Age gap:

Lowdown: Not very long ago, Cannon confessed that he masturbated to Carey's music: whatever that means! Anyway, it gives us an 'insight' into their fond relationship. Both the singers — who harbour acting ambitions, too — met while shooting a music video in 2008.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
