Age is just a number right? If you’re truly in love, a significant age gap shouldn’t affect the romance and the passion. That might be easy to say, but can it really work in reality? Apparently it can! While onlookers might stare in disapproval, the besotted couples we have over here certainly have no reservations about their partners or spouses. Well, what happens when the age difference is about four decades? That apparently works too!
They may have age gaps between them that are larger than what the norm is, but they prove that chemistry (the romantic kind) takes no heed of numbers. Here are some of the most popular Hollywood couples who prove you don’t need to be the same age to be compatible.
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger
Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, married 39-year-old “Avengers: Endgame” star Chris Pratt in a low-key ceremony on June 8. The two has an age difference of 10 years.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
They’re one of the hottest new couple in town. While many fans noted their age difference of 11 years, the couple couldn’t care less. Nick reportedly is a fan of the age gap between him and Priyanka.
Camila Cabello and Matthew Hussey
the 22-year-old singer and 31-year-old relationship coach started dating in 2018. The two were spotted getting close while on a trip to Mexico. The two has a age difference of 10 years.

We bet you didn’t know that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are actually 11 years apart in age. They are known for their quick wit and sense of humour, and have proven that their age gap definitely doesn’t affect that.

While it is true a good 13 years sits between them, that has not kept them from being a loving couple and doting parents.
Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey
While there is a 14-year age difference between the two, they never seem to acknowledge it. For them, love truly prevails, age a mute afterthought.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
There is a 13-year age difference between the two and when they first started dating, Megan was just 18.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
There perhaps is no cuter couple in Hollywood than Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. When a relationship is that strong, age seems all the more insignificant. Even so, there is a 15-year age difference between the two, neither Portia nor Ellen seem to give it much thought.
Scott Disick and Sofia Richie
Disick, the 35-year-old father of Kourtney Kardashian’s three kids, is now dating 20-year-old model Richie.

Even though George Clooney is 17 years older than Amal, it has certainly not stopped them from embracing a passionate relationship.

Annette Bening and Warren Beatty
Despite their 21-year age difference, the relationship between these two long-time Hollywood fixtures has stood the test of time.

Hayley Roberts and David Hasselhoff
Welch beauty Roberts is 27 years Hasselhoff’s junior. What seems more of an issue than age is that she shares the same name as Hasselhoff’s daughter from a previous marriage (that could get confusing). Here’s to hoping that the third time’s the charm for The Hoff!
Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor
They seem to be the perfect match; however, it is hard to deny that there is quite the age gap between them, 32 years to be exact. Still, they seem to be madly in love. Paulson has expressed in a couple of interviews how happy she is to be with Taylor.
Emilie Livingston and Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum married Emilie who is a whole 31 years younger than he is. They continue to live happily together, paying no mind to their seemingly glaring age difference.
