7 Celebrity May-December Couples

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas

In Hollywood, age differences of 15 years or more are as common as Botox and palm trees, as celebrities seem to think nothing of dating someone significantly older or younger than them. And although one of Hollywood’s longest-running age gap couples, Barbara Hershey, 62, and Naveen Andrews, 41, recently called it quits after 11 years together, below are nine other May-December relationships that are still going strong.

1. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas - Age is just a number for Catherine and Michael, who share the same birthday and have an exact 25-year difference between them. When they first met in 1998, Michael supposedly wooed Catherine with the line, “I’d like to father your children.” It must have worked, because 12 years later, they have two kids together.

2. Peaches Geldof and Eli Roth – One of the newest age gap duos on the Hollywood scene, the 21-year-old British socialite and her 38-year-old Inglourious Basterds boyfriend have a 17 year age difference. However, as a couple, they have generated enough news headlines to last a lifetime. After Peaches was caught in a drug and nude photo scandal, Eli took to the press to defend his girlfriend of 4 months. However, only time will tell if their relationship will last through the initial stages of romances.

3. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes – With buzzed-about summer blockbusters to promote and a tendency for over-the-top displays of affection, many people though TomKat’s coupling in 2005 was a publicity stunt. However, after four years of marriage and a daughter named Suri, 47-year-old Tom and Katie, 31, have sure proved their disbelievers wrong! Tom Cruise Pressuring Katie For Another Baby

4. Madonna and Jesus Luz - We have to give some props to Madonna, 51, and Jesus Luz, 23. There weren’t many who thought a couple with a 28-year difference in age would last more than a month. However, since their initial meeting on a photo shoot in late 2008, the couple is still together, despite some brief break-ups along the way and the fact that Madonna is reportedly the same age as Jesus’ grandmother.

5. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart - No date has been publicly announced for the wedding of Harrison Ford, 67, to his longtime lady love Calista Flockhart, 45, but, after almost a decade together, the couple doesn’t seem to be in a big hurry anyway. The low-key couple, who have a 22-year age difference, reportedly got engaged in 2009 so that Harrison could be more of an official parent to Calista’s 9-year-old adopted son Liam, who was just an infant when Calista and Harrison first started dating.

6. Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn - Not only do Woody Allen, 74, and Soon-Yi Previn, 39, have a whopping 35-year age difference, they also hold a record for being the most controversial couple in Hollywood. Woody was in a long-term relationship with Soon-Yi’s adopted mother, Mia Farrow, when the couple first became an item. As an explanation, Woody once told a reporter: "The heart wants what it wants. There's no logic to those things. You meet someone and you fall in love and that's that."

7. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher - What list of age gap couples could be complete without mentioning the woman who virtually created the cougar trend? 47-year-old Demi Moore may look preternaturally young, but she and her boytoy husband Ashton Kutcher, whom she met in 2003, have a 15-year-difference between them.
