Just like normal couples, celebrities sometimes date well above or below their age. After all, love can take many forms, so what difference does a few years make? In Hollywood, so many marriages break up that it hardly seems like age matters as a deciding factor. For these celebrity couples, the age difference never stood in the way of their love!
Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas
The 11-year age gap didn't stop Priyanka Chopra from falling head over heels with Nick Jonas. Their relationship was probably the most-watched celebrity romance of 2018-2019. Rumors surrounded the pair long before they were a confirmed couple, with clues coming in the comments of one another's Instagram posts. Sweet compliments and adorable flirting tipped off celebrity watchers worldwide, and the relationship was confirmed soon after.
Beyonce & Jay-Z
Beyonce and Jay-Z are the ultimate celebrity power couple. They're also ten years apart in age! With Jay-Z clocking in at 49 and Beyonce still enjoying the last of her 30's, the age gap apparently didn't matter one bit when the two began collaborating heavily artistically, spawning all kinds of rumors about a possible romance. It turns out that this time, the celebrity rumors were true, as the duo announced their relationship by arriving as a couple at the 2004 VMAs.
Donald & Melania Trump
Hate him or love him, Donald Trump is about as famous as any celebrity can get. His age gap with First Lady Melania Trump is a whopping 24 years, making for an epic difference between his and Melania's birth years. We aren't sure how she stands him, but whatever the reason, the couple is still together. Whether it's all just politics at this point can't be known for sure, but if it's lasted this long, we don't see it ending anytime soon!
Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones
When Catherine Zeta-Jones had her wedding with Michael Douglas, she knew she was marrying into Hollywood royalty. The son of silver screen legend Kirk Douglas, Michael has one of the most respected careers in the business. Catherine is no stranger to the silver screen herself, having carved out a cozy spot as one of the movies business' most alluring ladies. The couple is 25 years apart, but with 18 years of marriage now under their belts, Michael and Catherine seem to be doing it right!
Olivier Sarkozy & Mary-Kate Olsen
Best known as the banker brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Olivier Sarkozy raised eyebrows when he started dating 90's child megastar Mary-Kate Olsen. However, their 17-year age difference is nothing compared to some other celebrities (President Trump, we're looking at you!). Hopefully this one keeps going strong...this one raised eyebrows when the couple announced they were officially together, but honestly, who are we to judge?
Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey has dominated Hollywood for a long time now, but you might not have heard as much about Camila Alves. She's a model, designer, and Matthew's wife...and she's also 14 years his junior. However, they've been dating 13 years, which already beats the odds for a Hollywood couple. Whatever they're doing, it's working for them!
Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively
With beautiful Blake in her 30s and dashing Ryan in his 40s, this celeb mega-couple is 11 years apart. In age gap terms, that's no biggie...just look at Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones for an example why an 11-year difference is hardly anything to shake a stick at in today's dating world!
Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart
Indiana Jones discovered a much younger bride in longtime sweetheart Calista Flockhart, of Ally McBeal fame. After meeting in 2002 at the Golden Globes, Harrison and Calista dated for years before he finally proposed on Valentine's Day 2009. Harrison had been married before, and those relationships ended in divorce. but this time, His 23-year age difference with Calista didn't seem to have any negative effect...much like the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises in which Harrison stars, their union has lasted the test of time!
Deborra Lee-Furness & Hugh Jackman
When Hugh Jackman was working on the Australian TV show Correlli, he met fellow actor Deborra Lee-Furness. Sparks flew, and the pair married just one year later. The kicker? They have a 13-year age gap, with Hugh coming in the younger of the duo. Like other age gap celebrity couples, they've lasted longer than most Hollywood marriages, leading us to sense a pattern. Is an age gap the secret to making it in a showbiz relationship?
George & Amal Clooney
George met Amal at at Georg'es luxurious mansion in Italy, and despite the 17-year age difference -- George is 58, and Amal is 41 -- sparks flew! She was just tagging along with a friend who was visiting, but George and Amal hit it off immediately and began emailing after their first encounter. The best part? George's parents were visiting at the same time, so Amal got to meet them at the same time as she met her future husband!
