Love is something that isn’t supposed to be affected by age or ethnicity or even gender, which could be why there are so many couples in the spotlight night now that many fans consider to be mismatched. There are still a lot of people who believe that age is just a number and even though they have grown up in a different generation than their partner, it’s likely that the relationship will last. Just because it’s strange to fans that this couple would end up together, that doesn’t mean that the couple can’t make it work.
There have been instances when age gaps have become a huge issue for stars in the spotlight because they don’t have a lot in common and there is a lot of pressure on them from the media and people who believe that they shouldn’t be together.
There are many couples who have been in the spotlight over the past few decades who have shown that there is hope for these couples because they have been able to make their relationships work against all odds. After all, age is just a number and as long as the couple is happy with each other then they don’t have to worry about anyone else’s opinion about their personal life.
The following list looks at just 20 of the newest celebrity couples who have the biggest age gaps. These couples haven’t been together for very long, but so far they are managing to defy the doubters and make their relationship work.
20. BRAD PITT AND NERI OXMAN – 12 YEARS
Brad Pitt’s divorce from longtime wife Angelina Jolie was made quite a public affair a few years ago, but it appears that Brad has finally been able to move on with MIT professor Neri Oxman. The two were first linked together back in April when it was revealed that the couple had gotten to know each other after meeting through an MIT architecture project.
An insider told US Weekly that “Brad is absolutely smitten by her” and that “their chemistry is off the charts.” It was also rumored that the couple had been dating secretly for six months and that it took Brad a long time to move on after his breakup with fellow actress and A-list star Angelina but he had finally been able to move on with Oxman. According to US Weekly, Brad and Neri are taking their relationship day by day and speak multiple times a day on the phone, but Oxman isn’t ready to give up her life at Cambridge for anyone, not even Brad Pitt. Even though Neri obviously challenges Pitt when it comes to her intellect, the professor is only 42 years old, which makes her 12 years younger than the worldwide acclaimed actor.
19. LEONARDO DICAPRIO AND CAMILLA MORRONE – 23 YEARS
Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the best-known actors in the world but his personal life has made interesting reading over the past few years. DiCaprio has recently been linked with aspiring model and actress Camilla Morrone, who is more than two decades younger than the Oscar-winning star. DiCaprio has been linked to the likes of Emma Bunton, Kristen Zang, Emma Mille, Gisele Bündchen and Bar Refaeli throughout the course of his career but in April 2018 it was finally revealed that the star had moved on to Morrone.
The two were first linked together back in December when Leo was pictured leaving her house. Over the past few months, the couple has been pictured a number of times including Ellen DeGeneres’ 60th birthday party in LA side-by-side and during Eminem’s gig at Coachella.
Morrone herself isn’t a stranger to the spotlight since her mother Lucila Sola has been in a relationship with Al Pacino for the past nine years and her father Maximo Morrone is a former model and actor. The Daily Mail reported yesterday that the couple was still getting cozy on date night a few days ago. It appears that the age gap between the two stars hasn’t been an issue.
