Dating Someone Much Younger

Some people may have no problem with individuals dating who have a large age difference and others may have a very big problem with age difference. Whatever your opinion is on the matter it doesn't change the fact that some celebrities can't seem to find love with a person of their own age.

Some celebrities are serial daters who couple with someone much younger themselves. For the serial daters that constantly end up with someone much younger, these celebrities may be trying to prove their still young and vibrant. However, some celebrities simply fall in love with a much younger person and that's the end of it.

It is the serial daters that are always searching for a younger mate that worry me. First of all they are the type of person that moves from relationship to relationship and cannot maintain a relationship with a similar aged person.

Some of the celebrities on the list may surprise you, and some will not surprise you at all. You will find that certain celebrities appear more than once and that men are usually the older partner in the relationship.

Brad Pitt (older) and Angelina Jolie (12 Year Age Difference) : Many know that Pitt and Jolie met while filming the movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston but it didn't take long for sex siren Jolie to catch Pitt's eye.

Brian Austin Green (older) and Megan Fox (12 Year Age Difference): The two started dating in 2004 when Fox was a mere 18 years old and he was 30 years of age. The two have now married and have two children together. Green was cutting it close, I wonder if he checked her birth certificate prior to their first date??

Demi Moore (older) and Ashton Kutcher (15 Year Age Difference): One of the few older women on the list, Moore and Kutcher were first recognized as a couple in 2003. In Sept. 2005 the two married and remained that way until 2012, when Kutcher filed for a divorce. Not long after filing for divorce Kutcher was seen with a younger and updated model in the form of Mila Kunis.


Sean Penn (older) and Charlize Theron (15 Year Age Difference): They began making their rounds as a couple secretly in 2013 but in 2014 became more open about their relationship. Theron is the mother of a young child, and Penn used to be married Robin Wright.

16 - 18 Years of An Age Difference

Tom Cruise (older) and Katie Holmes (16 Year Age Difference): One of the more surprising couples in that last few years, was the whirlwind romance between Cruise and Holmes. The two had quite a flamboyant start to their relationship from jumping on couches to riding motorcycles down the red carpet. A marriage and one daughter later, Holmes proved to be quite the secret agent defeating the church of Scientology and getting out of her marriage mostly unscathed.


Kevin Kline (older) and Phoebe Cates (16 Year Age Difference): Kline married Cates in 1989 and they have two children together.


Bruce Willis (older) and Karen McDougal (16 Year Age Difference): The two briefly dated in 2007. This would not be Willis's only much younger girlfriend. Willis obviously likes his women young after divorcing Demi Moore.

Robert "Mutt" Lange (older) and Shania Twain (16 Year Age Difference): The two met at a Nashville's Fan Fair in June of 1993 and married quite fast after that in Dec. 1993. Lange had an alleged affair with another woman and the two soon separated and the divorce was finalized in June 2010. The two had one child together. Twain has since re-married.


Dennis Quaid (older) and Kimberly Buffington (17 Year Age Difference): Quaid has been married three times, his second wife being actress Meg Ryan. His third wife is Kimberly Buffington who is a Texas real-estate agent. The two have had a rocky union but married on July 4, 2004. The two have twins together. Buffington filed for divorce in 2012 but the two have since reconciled and remain together.


Jerry Seinfeld (older) and Jessica Sklar (17 Year Age Difference): Seinfeld and Sklar married in 1999 and have one daughter and two sons together. This would not be Seinfeld's only trip to the candy store.


Don Johnson (older) and Kelley Phleger (18 Year Age Difference): Johnson has been around the block quite a few times, being married five times in his life, two of the times to Melanie Griffith. Just a side note: Johnson and Griffith moved in together when Griffith was 15! and he was 22. When Griffith turned 18 he then proposed to her and married her very soon after that. So Johnson is used to chasing after much younger women. However, his fifth marriage was to Phleger in 1999.


Pau McCartney (older) and Nancy Shevell (18 Year Age Difference): The two married in a civil ceremony in 2011.

19 - 22 Years of An Age Difference

David Schwimmer (older) and Zoe Buckman (19 Year Age Difference): The two were married in 2011 and have a daughter together.


Nicolas Cage (older) and Alice Kim (20 year Age Difference): Cage has been married three times, his first to Patricia Arquette in 1995, his second to Lisa Marie Presley in 2002, and his third to Alice Kim in 2004. Kim was a former waitress in LA and the two have one son together, Kal-El... And yes... Cage did name his son after Superman.


Warren Beatty (older) and Annette Benning (21 Year Age Difference):Beatty has always been known as quite the ladies' man but he found his true love in the 21 year younger Annette Benning. The two married in 1992 and have four children together. The two are still going strong today.


Jerry Seinfeld (Sleazy older) and Shoshanna Lonstein (21 Year Age Difference): This relationship creeps me out and I wonder why charges weren't filed against Seinfeld at the time. It just goes to show you that celebrities get away with anything. When Seinfeld began dating Lonstein she was only 17 and still in high school! Seinfeld on the other hand was 38 and very creepy. They had a four year romance, which lasted until Lonstein made it to drinking age and called it quits.


Kevin Costner (older) and Christina Baumgartner (22 Year Age Difference): My nickname for Costner is the "baby making machine." Costner has kids sprawled out all over the nation. He had three children with his first wife, one child with someone he dated randomly, and three more children with his now wife Baumgartner. Costner and Baumgartner married in 2004.


Alan Thicke (older) and Gina Tolleson (22 Year Age Difference): Tolleson is Thicke's second wife whom he married in 1994. Tolleson is a former Miss World?? Whatever that is. They have one son together.

23 - 26 Years of An Age Difference

Harrison Ford (older) and Calista Flockhart (23 Year Age Difference): Ford has been married three times. His first wife having two children, his second wife having two more children, and then in 2002 he met Flockhart and together they have an adopted son. Ford and Flockhart married in 2010.


Bruce Willis (OLDER!!) and his ring of ladies (23 Year Age Difference): Brooke Burns, Emma Hemming, and Emily Sandberg: I'm not even going to go there!


Donald Trump (older) and Melania Knauss (24 Year Age Difference):I'm guessing Knauss fell in love with Trump's wonderful personality. The two married in 2005 and have one son together.


Rod Stewart (older) and Rachel Hunter (25 Year Age Difference): It's very hard to keep all of Stewart's women in order. I need some sort of a flow chart or graph to follow the women and the children Stewart has helped create. Hunter was somewhere towards the end of Stewart's list of women. They have two children together and divorced in 2006.


Paul McCartney (older) and Heather Mills (25 Year Age Difference): The two married in 2002 and had a daughter together. The two separated in 2006 and the divorce was finalized in 2008.


Bruce Willis (OMG!! OLDER AGAIN!!) and Nadia Bjorlin (25 Year Age Difference): No comment


Michael Douglas (older) and Catherine Zeta Jones (25 Year Age Difference): Douglas and Zeta-Jones met in France in 1998 after being introduced by Danny DeVito. They were married in 2000 and have two children together. They have done through a bout with cancer and bipolar disorder. They were on the outs in 2013 but for now seem to be reunited.


Alec Baldwin (older) and Hilaria Thomas (26 Year Age Difference): Baldwin married Thomas in 2012 and they have one daughter together. Now we can see lovely pictures of Thomas in various yoga poses posted all over social media. Begging for attention much Hilaria??? She seems desperate for attention, the two of them should fit well together.


Rene Angelil (Bordering Child Molester....older) and Celine Dion (26 Year Age Difference):Dion met her future husband when she was 12 and he was 38. Ew... Can we say daddy issues??? However, they waited seven more years before they began a relationship. The two married in 1994 and have three sons together. I guess the whole daddy thing works for Dion because they are still married.


Kelsey Grammar (older) and Kayte Walsh (26 Year Age Difference):Married four separate times, Grammar kind of grosses me out now. At first I thought he seemed like a pretty cool guy but he had an affair while still married and impregnated British Airline Stewardess Walsh, and said he only wanted his son with him in New York City from his third marriage. He didn't mind if his third wife kept the girl as long as he got the boy. Say What!!??!! Wow a total jerk for lack of more elaborate words to be used on a website. Needless to say Grammar has a boat load of children and baggage, but the stewardess should be able to handle it.

Kenny Rogers (older) and Wanda Miller (28 Year Age Difference): Rogers sings of knowing when to hold them and when to fold them but he obviously does not follow his own advice when dealing with relationships. Married FIVE TIMES, with Miller being the most recent wife. Rogers has 5 children to four different baby mamas. Miller and Rogers married in 1997 and remain together as of today. She even stuck by him when he got a brand new scary plastic face. Now that's love!


Jeff Goldblum (older and making a reappearance) and Emilie Livingston (30 Year Age Difference): Dated briefly and that's about it.

OVER 35 YEAR AGE DIFFERENCE!

Drumroll please...... The winners are....


Clint Eastwood (older) and Dina Ruiz (36 Year Age Difference): Very similar to Stewart's rap sheet, Eastwood's list of ladies is hard to follow. I'm not sure a flowchart would even be useful in Eastwood's case. Ruiz was his latest lady. They married in 1996 and have one daughter, but in 2013 they announced they had been living separately.


Hugh Hefner (lol older) and Kimberly Conrad (37 Year Age Difference): Many of you were probably wondering when Hefner would show up, well here he is. Hefner married Conrad in 1989 and they had two children together. During the time they were married the playboy mansion was said to be more family friendly. When the two separated in 1998, Conrad moved to the house next door.


Patrick Stewart (older, how could you Professonr Xavier) and Sunny Ozell (38 Year Age Difference): The two married in 2013.


Patrick Stewart (older and back so soon) and Lisa Dillon (39 Year Age Difference): Dated from 2003 - 2007.


Clint Eastwood (Dirty Harry Older...ewww) and Erica Tomlinson-Fisher (41 Year Age Difference): After separating from Dina in 2013, Eastwood wasted no time moving on with Tomlinson-Fisher. They are currently engaged.


Dick Van Dyke (older) and Arlene Silver (46 Year Age Difference): Silver, a make up artist, met Van Dyke at the SAG awards in 2006. They were married in 2012.


Hugh Hefner (yes... he's back) and Holly Madison (54 Year Age Difference): Madison was a playboy bunny and one of three of Hefner's girlfriends while the show "Girls Next Door" aired. Hefner wouldn't marry Madison because he said marriage doesn't work for him.


Hugh Hefner (LMAO) and Crystal Harris (60 Year Age Difference):Even though Hefner had said marriage wasn't his thing only a few years earlier, Hefner soon married Harris in 2012 when he was 86 and she was 26. Congrats Grandpa!


J. Howard Marshall II (older) and Anna Nicole Smith (63 Year Age Difference): I won't say much on this subject as to respect the two mentioned individuals and their passing.

      While some of these "unions" may seem creepy, there are cases where people just mesh well, and in my opinion, A lot of women are very mature, and can't find a mature man their age, so they opt for much older. I've dated a bunch of older men since I was in my twenties, once was 13 yrs older, one 15, and then one 18....

      As far as Celine, I'm a huge fan, and read her life story, and yes Rene was careful....like it was totally her who went after him...when was old enough...but anyway....this was a fun read with the pics and all!

      Such acceptance for so many scenarios here where the men are older and the women are young but wise. Granted, the ICK factor is acknowledged, but I scrolled a long while hoping to see that there might be mention of any old sack of skin that might claim the role of an older woman with a younger man. Such a bummer that this scenario is rarely a topic of conversation, because it's not cute, funny, or ucky... rather, it is an unthinkable and horrendous blemish on society worthy of pitchforks and scorn. The words here were right on... just surprising that Demi was a lone cougar...ummm, I mean wolf. ;-)
