Big Age Gap? So What! Hollywood's May Dec Moms & Dads

Have you seen Kick Ass, the movie with the potty mouthed pre-teen super hero? The film’s star Aaron Johnson is going to be a daddy.

Aaron, just 19, is engaged to marry 43 year old British artist Sam Taylor Wood. That’s a whopping 24 year age difference!

Sam is seven months pregnant and has two children from a previous marriage. Of his impending daddydom, Aaron says, “It’s not scary. I’m already a step dad to [Taylor-Wood’s kids Angelica, 13, and Jessie, 3] anyway. So the nerves have sort of gone.”

That’s some serious maturity. And while many will whisper in hushed voices in the corner of fancy Hollywood parties over the fact that Aaron is just 6 years older than his step-daughter and far too young to be married to a woman Sam’s age, who is really to say it won’t work. There have been plenty of celebrity May December romances that include kids and have worked out happily. Let’s take a look:

Demi and Ashton are the poster-children for this sort of relationship.  Despite their 16 year age gap, things seem to be going great and Ashton is the coolest step dad around for Demi’s kids Rumer, 21, Scout, 18, and Tallulah Belle, 16.

Who else is 16 years apart? Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. They’re happy parents to Suri and Katie plays step-mom to Tom’s adopted children with Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella.

Catherine Zeta-Jones, 40, has been married to Michael Douglas, 65, for 9 years now. They have two children together, Dylan, 9, and Carys, 6. When the youngest goes to college, he’ll be 77.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart aren’t married but have been together for years. There is a 22 year age gap and they share responsibility of Calista’s son Liam.

Donald Trump and Melania are seperated by 24 years and are parents to Barron.

Halle Berry found love with ten-years-younger Gabriel Aubry. The couple are parents to daughter Nahla. 

Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn win the age gap prize with a 35 year age difference. They have two adopted children, Bechet and Manzie. Woody also has two adopted children and one biological child with Mia Farrow. They choose not to speak with him because of his relationship with Soon-Yi, who was one of Mia’s adopted kids. Talk about complicated.
