A person’s height does not determine their worth, regardless of gender. Although Hollywood is known for having many tall and beautiful models, it’s important to recognize that there are successful individuals of shorter stature as well. Despite their height, these women have made significant contributions to the industry, showcasing their talent and leaving a lasting impression on those around them. Here are some of the shortest women in Hollywood who have achieved great success and have a high level of confidence in their craft.
Nicole Richie //5’1″
Although Nicole Richie acted alongside Paris Hilton in a show called The Simple Life, her life is far from uncomplicated. As a fashion designer, she stood next to her friend who was 5’8, while she herself is only 5’1 tall.
The petite actress is currently wedded, runs a prosperous fashion brand, has agreements to write books, and also plays a character in the comedy series “Great News”. Who says being tall in height is the only way to achieve success?
Anna Kendrick //5’2″
The character Jessica Stanley played by Anna Kendrick in the Twilight series earned her a lot of attention. However, it was her portrayal of the Barden Bellas and her rendition of the Cup Song in Pitch Perfect that brought her to the status of a Hollywood celebrity.
Ever since, the female performer has been on an unpredictable journey, featuring in various films and television series. However, it may come as a surprise that despite her successful career, she stands at a mere height of approximately 5’2.
Emilia Clarke //5’2″
This performer has demonstrated that one’s height is not a limitation. Despite being just 5’2 tall, she successfully portrayed one of the most powerful female characters on TV – the Mother of Dragons.
The actress who played Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones gained worldwide recognition and has continued to climb higher on the ladder of success even without the assistance of her dragons. She has ventured into less intense romance-based roles and featured in movies such as Me Before You and Last Christmas.
Ariana Grande // 5’1”
Despite having one of the highest pitches and ponytails in Hollywood, Ariana Grande is not tall. She stands at a height of 5’1, but her towering high heels on the red carpet and impressive performances on stage create an illusion of her being taller, both in terms of physical appearance and talent.
Many fans adore the singer of “7 Rings,” whose music videos have accumulated over 9 billion views!
Scarlett Johansson //5’3″
ScarJo’s glorious career has earned her tremendous acclaim, ranging from recognition for her exceptional acting skills to profiles in magazines that highlight her impeccable beauty. Given her successful career, it’s easy to forget that the actress stands at only 5’3″.
The topic of the height of the actress who portrayed the Black Widow character is not relevant or being talked about while she impresses the viewers with her fashion statement in the Avenger film series or her captivating performance in Lost in Translation.
Mila Kunis //5’4″
Despite being compared to tall actresses in Hollywood, Mila Kunis cannot be deemed very short. Her height of 5’4″ is insignificant when compared to her remarkable personality.
Kunis became well-known for her part in That ’70s Show, in which she acted alongside her current spouse, Ashton Kutcher. Since then, her reputation has grown due to her inspiring love story with Kutcher, her lively appearance on talk shows, and her acting abilities showcased in both Family Guy and Black Swan.

However, despite the various fluctuations depicted in the show, viewers also became aware of Snooki’s height, which stands at just 4 feet 8 inches. Despite being one of Hollywood’s shortest celebrities, Snooki’s personality more than makes up for it. As of now, Snooki makes cameo appearances on other TV programs and also serves as a host on MTV.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, who starred in I Know What You Did Last Summer and Party of Five, initially began her Hollywood career with Disney in 1989, but later moved on to more significant and successful roles.

Additionally, her popular book club among celebrities guarantees that any book selected is guaranteed to climb the bestseller list.
Salma Hayek //5’2″

Hayek’s ascent to fame and recognition for her outstanding performance in that role earned her a place among the nominees for an Academy Award. Since then, she has maintained her career in the entertainment industry, featuring in films and television shows like 30 Rock, while also engaging in philanthropic activities that align with her values.
Kristen Bell //5’1″
Kristen Bell’s accomplishments outweigh her short height of 5’1. Although she began her career on Broadway, she has progressed to dominate in television, film, and voice acting.

Nicki Minaj //5’2″
Her height of 5’2 doesn’t affect her confidence, which is very high. Nicki Minaj has been a fearless, unapologetic rapper since her debut and has gained popularity on the Billboard charts.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have achieved unparalleled success and fame as twins, dominating the entertainment industry in Hollywood for a considerable length of time. They have ventured into multiple streams, including books, movies, TV shows and clothing lines, among others.

Ashley Olsen //5’1″
Ashley Olsen, who is part of the Olsen twins, is the shorter sibling with a height of only 5’1″. The talented sisters, Ashley and Mary-Kate, achieved success at a young age with their shared role as Michelle Tanner in Full House.
The twins’ lack of height is particularly noticeable when standing next to Elizabeth Olsen, their younger sister who is tall at 5′ 5″.
Natalie Portman // 5’3”
It is difficult to estimate the height of Natalie Portman who is only 5’3 because of her slender and well-formed build, which gives an illusion of her being taller.

It’s a tough task to encapsulate Amy Poehler’s allure in a brief summary, given her diverse roles as an actress, director, comedian, writer, producer, and voice artist. However, her most well-known work comes from the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.
One of the most delightful and humorous television programs to have ever aired is the sitcom set in a small town, featuring Poehler who stands at only 5’2″, and who is responsible for the show’s enchanting qualities.

Lucy Liu //5’3″
The third of Charlie’s Angels has proven that height is just a number and even at just 5’3″, you can play a pretty impressive character in an action movie.

We all know her as Doctor Miranda Bailey, the no-nonsense chief of surgery at the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. The Grey’s Anatomy actor has played the role for almost 17 years and has reprised it for all the spin-offs of the long-running drama.
Despite her strict attitude and the new interns cowering in front of her, the actress stands at a meager 5’0″. It’s proof that it’s the attitude that maketh the man.
Lily-Rose Depp //5’3″
The daughter of one of the most significant French models, Venessa Paradis, and American actor Johnny Dell, Lily-Rose Depp has led a life under the flash of a paparazzi camera.

Paula Abdula //5’0″
For someone who only stands at 5 feet, Paula Abdula holds immense power to make or break the dreams of thousands of people. This is all thanks to her role as a judge on the reality TV show American Idol.
The singer and dancer was one of the show’s original judges and continues to preside over the rotating participants season after season. She’s still the shortest judge to ever sit in the seat.
Emma Roberts //5’2″
Julia Roberts’ niece might have inherited her talent for showbiz, but she lost out in the height department. The young actress is only 5’2″ compared to her 5’9″ aunt.
However, this hasn’t stopped her from making her mark in Hollywood. The young Roberts has been making waves with stellar performances in Scream Queens, American Horror Story, and We’re the Millers.
Kourtney Kardashian //5’0″
The eldest of all the sisters is also the tiniest of all. With statuesque model sisters like Khloe and Kendall towering over her, Kourtney’s 5’0″ frame is often dwarfed in the family photos.
However, the reality TV star’s height is no match for her global fame! Like the rest of her famous family, Kourtney has her own brands, earns money from the eponymous long-running show, and is one of the most family-oriented people in the clan.

The apple of all Disney watchers’ eye, Hilary Duff’s role as Lizzie McGuire propelled her into the teen idol category, making her one of the most sought-after teen stars of her time.
Since then, Duff has continued to act in movies like A Cinderella Story and make music and release studio albums. The 5’2″ actress is the lead in How I Met Your Father.

America Ferrera’s career started at a young age when she realized that she had a love and passion for acting. Since then, she’s starred in memorable productions like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Ugly Betty.

Rachel Bilson // 5’2”
There’s one thing that everybody can agree on – Rachel Bilson refuses to age. These days, Bilson looks almost the same as when she was a teen.
Whether it’s a role as the carefree teen Summer Roberts in The OC or a down-on-her-luck doctor in Hart of Dixie, the actress looks the same. This could be because Bilson clocks out at a mere 5’2″.
Maisie Williams // 5’1”
Maisie Williams found success at a very young age as Arya Stark in the megahit TV show Game of Thrones. Despite its controversial final season, Maisie’s character and portrayal of Arya remained a fan favorite.
The show propelled Williams to international fame early on and the 5’1″ actress has only gone upwards since then! Alongside many other projects, Williams also launched a platform called Daisie to broaden the horizons of artistic people.
AnnaSophia Robb //5’0″
Robb’s career started when she was just a child, even starting in the classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as Violet Beauregarde. After a slew of more minor roles, her big break came in 2014 with the CW series The Carrie Diaries.
Even though the show only lasted for a year, many praised Robb. The 5’0″ star has played a young Carrie Bradshaw, so one can only hope that she achieves the same success as her predecessor Sarah Jessica Parker.
Quinta Brunson //4’11”
The genius behind Abbot Elementary is brimming with talent – all 4’11” inches of her! The Emmy winner has captured hearts with her school place sitcom, where she plays the role of Janine, a bubbly teacher with a can-do attitude.
Her older work credits include iZombie, Single Parents, and Miracle Worker. Quinta proves that although she’s small in stature, she’s big in talent!
Amanda Seyfried //5’2″
Amanda Seyfried has one of those physiques that makes her look much taller than her 5’2″ frame. It’s no wonder that she was able to play the 5’7″ Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in The Dropout.
Seyfried has a long list of successful projects both behind and in front of her. She’s starred in Mamma Mia: The Musical as Meryl Streep’s daughter and in Nicholas Spark’s book adaptation Dear John.
Constance Wu //5’2″
Constance Wu is a successful actress in Hollywood whose starring role as Jessica Huang in Fresh Off the Boat made her a household name. Her portrayal of the highly-strung mother struggling with her new suburban neighborhood is an absolute delight.
Wu took a long leap and went from playing a mother to the rom-com Crazy Rich Asians, and that move paid off for her. The 5’2″ actress’s movie was a significant hit!
There are a lot of components that go into how much chemistry a couple has, no matter if you’re an everyday person or one of the vast number of celebrities gracing the covers of magazines and movie screens across the globe. Having similar interests or hobbies is always a plus, and this typically means that you’re around the same age. But, there are tons of famous men whose girlfriends keep getting younger and younger in Hollywood. Here’s a look at some of them!
Steven Tyler and Aimee Ann Preston (41 Years)
Steven Tyler is one of the most iconic rock ‘n’ roll stars ever. Over his decades with Aerosmith, he has garnered many awards and a lot of attention, especially for those that he struts around with on his arm.
One of these just so happened to be his assistant, Amy Ann Preston. This young professional was romantically linked with the rockstar despite their 41-year age gap.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone (23 Years)
Leonardo DiCaprio has been in the entertainment industry since he was a young kid, and because of this, all eyes have been on him during his entire dating life. With his undeniable talent on screen, it’s no surprise that Leo has found his way into some pretty public relationships.
One of these relationships is with the beautiful Camilla Morrone, who has been seen around town with him. This couple has a 23-year gap, but it doesn’t seem to phase them one bit.
Al Pacino and Meital Dohan (39 Years)
Al Pacino has been a pretty consistent feature in Hollywood for decades. Always the bachelor, he has been linked to several other famous actresses when it comes to romantic relationships.
Though many of these women were closer to his age, it seems that for right now, he’s settled on dating Israeli movie star Meital Dohan — who is 39 years his junior.
Sean Penn and Leila George (32 Years)
Over his illustrious and lengthy career, Sean Penn has been married several times to some pretty big names. Among those, of course, are Madonna and Robin Wright, but once those relationships were over, it seems Sean turned to the younger crowd.
In doing this, he found himself in a pretty public relationship with a much younger woman. Layla George, who was linked to him in 2019, is 32 years younger than the A-list actor.
Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie (39 Years)
Dennis Quaid, after having three failed marriages, still wanted to have a meaningful relationship. So the 65-year-old actor found a way to make his dating life more private and eventually ended up proposing to a much younger woman.
Just four months after meeting Laura Savoie, he popped the question despite their 39-year age gap. Since then, they have tied the knot and seem to be very happy together.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (16 Years)
Both Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have made their mark in Hollywood — on the big screen and the small screen. Before Katie, though, Tom had other relationships with the likes of Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers.
Eventually, though, Tom Cruise found himself falling for a young woman, 16 years younger, to be exact. Yet, it didn’t seem to bother either of them one bit. Although the couple did part ways, the age difference was not the culprit.
Pete Cook and Alba Jancou (39 Years)
Pete Cook may not be a name that everyone recognizes, but this architect was launched into the limelight when he became Christie Brinkley’s husband. After they divorced, Pete began dating women a little bit younger than his ex.
In fact, he found himself falling for Alba Jancou, who’s just 21 years old. This means they have a 39-year age gap and that his significant other is younger than his daughter. That didn’t stop him from proposing to his beloved girlfriend, though!
Zach Braff and Florence Pugh (21 Years)
Zach Braff seems to have a thing for younger women now but he didn’t always. He had been romantically linked to big stars including Kirsten Dunst and Drew Barrymore, but eventually, he found love in a much younger actress.
Zach Braff has been in a relationship with Florence Pugh since 2019 — despite their 21-year age gap. The Black Widow star and her beau have had to defend their relationship on numerous occasions but they seem to have an undeniable connection.
Michael Sheen and Anna Lundberg (25 Years)
Michael Sheen has recently been making waves on the show Prodigal Son, but that isn’t the only place many people feel he rocks the boat a bit. After his marriage to Kate Beckinsale ended, Sheen found himself involved with a beautiful, young woman named Anna Lundberg.
The couple seems to be happy and making it work, though there is a 25-year age gap. They even welcomed a baby in September of 2019.
Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh (25 Years)
Following his very public divorce from Camille Grammer on the hit reality TV show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kelsey wanted a more low-key relationship.
Eventually, the 64-year-old actor met Kayte Walsh, who is 25 years younger than him, and they quickly fell for each other. Before long, the pair was walking down the aisle and becoming man and wife.
Robin Thicke and April Love Geary (18 Years)
It seems that many Hollywood stars, after having a traumatic breakup, turn to partners that are the complete opposite of the person they just left. That’s the case with the musician Robin Thicke, who had a pretty intense breakup with his previous wife, Paula Patton.
Still, it must not have been too tragic because months later, Thicke began to date a new woman, model April Love Geary. They seem to be pretty smitten with each other, especially considering the fact that they’ve welcomed three children together.
Dane Cook and Kelsi Taylor (26 Years)
Dane Cook is a pretty popular comedian who likes to keep things on the edge. Maybe that’s why he opted to go for a younger woman, Kelsi Taylor, when he began dating. However, it seems to be working because they’ve been together for quite a while.
After initially meeting each other at a game night at Cook’s house, the two quickly developed a relationship, and even with a 26-year age gap, they still have a lot in common.
David Foster and Katherine McPhee (34 Years)
There are lots of great stories when it comes to romantic entanglements, and how a couple meets. David Foster and Katharine McPhee first met when Katharine was a contestant on the fifth season of American Idol. Because Katharine was going to be performing a song that was originally written by David, he stopped by to help her practice.
With David as her mentor, the two developed a friendship and eventually, in 2018, announced their engagement. Of course, the media focused on their 34-year age gap rather than the relationship itself.
P. Diddy and Lori Harvey (28 Years)
Sean Combs has been in showbiz for decades, and because of this, he has been attached to several high-profile relationships with the likes of Jennifer Lopez. One of the longest, though, was with the singer Cassie.
When this relationship eventually fell apart, the entrepreneur began dating Lori Harvey. The two had a 28-year age gap, and that may be why the relationship only lasted three months.
Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato (12 Years)
The relationship is long over, but it seems that Wilmer Valderrama has a thing for younger women. In the past, his preferences gained a lot of attention, especially when it came to his six-year relationship with singer Demi Lovato.
With a 12-year age gap, the couple still seemed to be able to manage their differences. However, the two broke up eventually and moved on with their lives. Today, Wilmer is engaged to Amanda Pacheco — with whom he shares a child.
Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin (22 Years)
Hearing Sylvester Stallone’s name automatically conjures up images of a sweat-clad boxer punching a slab of meat. Perhaps his most iconic role, Rocky, also introduced him to his sweetheart — who he’s been with for over two decades!
Stallone met wife Jennifer Flavin on the set of Rocky V when he was 42, and she was 19. After 24 years together, they seem to have absolutely no issues with their 22-year age gap.
Mel Gibson and Rosalind Ross (35 Years)
Though Mel Gibson has had some pretty controversial moments over the past couple of decades, he’s still one of the most iconic actors in Hollywood. Because of his place in the entertainment industry, any relationship he has gains a lot of attention.
That includes his relationship with Rosalind Ross, who is 35 years younger than him. This large age gap could be a problem for some, but it doesn’t seem to be for them.
Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus (8 Years)
Ben Affleck has recently been making headlines for rekindling his famous relationship with J.Lo. They seem to be happy, but in between the time of Affleck’s divorce from ex-wife Jennifer Garner and now, he has had several relationships with younger women.
One of those was with a Saturday Night Live producer, Lindsey Shookus. Though the age gap was minimal, just a measly eight years, it might have been a deal-breaker. The relationship didn’t last, but Ben did move onto other younger women.
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger (11 Years)
Chris Pratt has become quite the leading man over the past several years, and this has made his romantic relationships that much more press-worthy. After he and his ex-wife, Anna Faris, split, Chris eventually found a new love.
Although they are 11 years apart, Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger eventually sealed the deal by walking down the aisle and exchanging vows. They have since welcomed a child together.
Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick (32 Years)
With several marriages under his belt, Billy Joel still didn’t lose hope and continued looking for “the one.” After both his marriages to Christie Brinkley and food writer Katie Lee ended, he found love again with his fourth wife.
Dating a woman half his age seems to be working out just fine. The musical genius exchanged vows with Alexis Roderick in 2015, and the two have been enjoying life ever since — despite their 32-year age gap.
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas (16 Years)
We’re back to Ben Affleck! After his divorce from Jennifer Garner, the star had several consistent relationships with younger women — though all of them obviously ended considering that he and J.Lo have been making headlines for getting back together.
Still, some of Ben’s previous relationships are worth mentioning. He was romantically linked to Ana de Armas, a Cuban movie star who happens to be 16 years younger than the award-winning actor.
Scott Disick and Sofia Richie (15 Years)
Scott Disick rose to fame as the boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian on the hit reality television show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Eventually, though, Scott and Kourtney ended their on-and-off relationship — and Scott finally moved on.
In 2017, Disick decided to let the world know that he had been dating Lionel Richie’s daughter, Sofia Richie, who’s 15 years his junior. This is a unique relationship because Richie is also close friends with many of the members of the Kardashian family. As of 2020, however, they’re no longer together.
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas (26 Years)
Alec Baldwin has been a fixture in the Hollywood scene for decades and has had several high-profile relationships, including his stormy marriage to actress Kim Basinger. When that relationship ended, many people were desperate to see who the next woman on his arm would be.
Alec eventually met Hilaria Thomas — and the two, despite their 26-year age gap, instantly clicked. So much so that they ended up tying the knot. They now have four children together.
Josh Duhamel and Audra Mari (21 Years)
It must be hard to maintain a marriage when the spotlight is always on you. Josh Duhamel was married to musician Fergie for eight years when they decided to split.
Since this breakup, Josh has been linked to several people but most recently to model Audra Mari. 21 years younger than Josh, Audra was crowned Miss World America 2016.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart (22 Years)
Harrison Ford has played many iconic roles and has been the subject of many tabloid stories regarding cheating. But perhaps, after finding love with Calista Flockhart, all of that is behind him.
Calista Flockhart, who is 22 years younger, and Harrison have been together since 2002 and share a child. It seems that the age gap may have worked its magic in this case.
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim (20 Years)
Nicolas Cage had already been married twice before he finally met his third wife, Alice Kim. These two met at a sushi restaurant where Kim was a waitress, and they hit it off. Eventually, they got married.
Whether it was the 20-year age gap or simply because their relationship just wasn’t working, the two eventually split up. But, this wouldn’t be the last younger woman that Cage would attach himself to.
Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston (30 Years)
Jeff Goldblum tried his hand at marriage a couple of times throughout the ’80s and failed on both accounts. Though each marriage ended on its own accord and for different reasons, it seemed that Jeff was out of luck when it came to love.
That was until 2014 when Jeff Goldblum met Emilie Livingston. Emilie — who is 30 years younger than Jeff — has stood by him since, and they even have two children together.
Bruce Willis and Emma Heming (24 years)
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore made for one of the most iconic ’90s couples. Still, their marriage eventually ended, although the two remain friends to this day. In any event, Moore and Willis went their separate ways. Eventually, though a decade after the divorce was over, Bruce would find new love.
Although Willis had different relationships over the years, none of them stuck until he met Emma Hemming, who is 24 years younger than him. The two fell head over heels for each other — so much so that they got married in 2009 and have welcomed two children ever since.
Lorenzo Lamas and Kenna Nicole Smith (27 Years)
Lorenzo Lamas may not be as big a star as some of the others, but he had his run on hit television shows like Falcon Crest. After four failed marriages, it seemed that Lorenzo was perpetually going to be the single bachelor — that is, until he met Kenna Nicole Smith.
After being introduced to each other through his godmother, Lorenzo and Kenna eventually began dating despite their 27-year age gap. Soon, their relationship blossomed into marriage, and now, the two are inseparable.
James Woods and Sara Miller (42 Years)
74-year-old actor James Woods has had plenty of time in the limelight when it comes to romantic relationships. With two previous marriages, it seemed as if he was done with that aspect of his life.
Until he met Sarah Miller, of course! Despite their 42-year age gap, Woods and Miller just can’t resist each other. The critically-acclaimed star recently sparked engagement rumors when he was spotted at a restaurant with his 32-year-old girlfriend — who was sporting a huge diamond on her ring finger.
Nicolas Cage and Riko Shibata (30 years)
After his marriage to Alice Kim ended, Nicolas Cage began dating again. This time, though, he thought he would try a younger woman to see if that could make things work. So, at the Independent Spirit Awards in 2020, he made his relationship with Riko Shibata public.
The two have a 30-year age gap. Still, that doesn’t seem to bother them much, as just a month after making their debut, the two tied the knot.
Lionel Richie and Lisa Parigi (40 Years)
It looks like Sofia isn’t the only Richie to make the list! Lionel Richie has been singing romance songs for decades and, naturally, has had many romances himself. But, back in 2014, when Lionel began dating Lisa Parigi, he kept it extremely quiet.
It wasn’t until 2021 when the relationship was suddenly put on blast, and people began discussing the 40-year age gap. Even with all the backlash on social media, though, the two remain deeply in love.
Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski (29 Years)
Over the last several years, Brad Pitt has been in the public eye due to his divorce from Angelina Jolie. With so much being exploited by paparazzi and tabloid press, you might think that Brad would stay away from any type of romantic entanglement.
But, in 2020, he was seen out and about with a new woman named Nicole Poturalski. This German model seems to be Brad’s new love interest despite their 29-year age gap.
Dolph Lundgren and Emma Krokdal (38 Years)
Dolph Lundgren got his start in the movie industry as a Russian boxer in one of the Rocky sequels. Since then, he has been in several movies and continues to work to this very day.
However, his romantic relationships have fallen under the radar until his newest one with a Norwegian personal trainer named Emma Krokdal. This relationship has found its way into the news thanks to the couple’s 38-year age gap.
Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunakey (30 Years)
Vincent Cassel is a French actor known for his roles on both television and in films including Westworld and Ocean’s 12. He’s not only popular for his movie roles, where he tends to play a tough guy, but he’s also known for his real-life romantic relationships.
He and his current wife have a 30-year age gap. The couple dated for three years before tying the knot in August 2018. Soon after, they welcomed a baby girl to the world!
John Stamos and Caitlin McHugh (22 Years)
John Stamos was — and still is — a heartthrob whether or not he has finally settled down. In any case, he and his wife met while filming an episode of a television show in 2015. They soon began dating and eventually got married.
With a 22-year age gap, many thought that this relationship was doomed to fail, but the two of them are still madly in love. They have one child together, named Billy.
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva (34 Years)
Richard Gere is one of those actors that almost every woman has had a bit of a crush on at one point or another. But, in 2015, Alejandra Silva seemed to nab him up. The two dated for a while before making their relationship public.
Maybe this was because of the 34-year age gap, or perhaps it was just because they wanted to have a little private time to themselves. The two finally married in 2018 and have had two children since.
Gavin Rossdale and Sophia Thomalla (24 Years)
After a very public and messy divorce with his rockstar wife, Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale didn’t waste any time to get back into the dating scene. In 2017, he began seeing German model Sophia Thomalla.
The relationship only lasted a year, however. Everybody couldn’t help but talk about the 24-year age gap and the fact that Gavin was dating a woman that was a year younger than his oldest daughter.
Mathew McConaughey and Camila Alves (14 Years)
Matthew McConaughey may strike some as a perpetual ladies man, but in 2007, he met someone who would change that — Camila Alves. Clearly, something stuck because they tied the knot in 2012.
Despite the 14-year age difference, the two seem to be very much in love — so much so that they have even welcomed three children together!
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin (17 Years)
Silverfox George Clooney had gone on record saying that he was never going to get married. He would perpetually be a Hollywood bachelor, but in 2013, his outlook on marriage changed when he met a beautiful, young attorney.
Amal Alamuddin and George began dating and a year later, they became husband and wife in Venice, Italy. It seemed that the 17-year age gap didn’t make any difference whatsoever to their relationship.
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander (11 Years)
Sometimes in Hollywood, you can find love on the sets of films. That’s what happened between Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, who played a married couple in the movie, The Light Between Two Oceans.
The 11-year age gap doesn’t seem to make any sort of difference as, one year later, the two got married in Spain. Clearly, their age difference is a bigger deal to the media than it is to them!
Randy Jackson and Simone (35 Years)
Randy Jackson was a well-known music producer before becoming a judge on the popular singing competition show, American Idol. Once he stepped into the limelight, though, he opened himself up for interest in the romance department.
This includes his relationship with musician Simone. The two have a 35-year age gap between them, but this doesn’t seem to stop them from enjoying each other’s company.
Jeffrey Morgan and Hilarie Burton (16 Years)
From starring in the hit horror show The Walking Dead to playing father to Dean and Sam in Supernatural, Jeffrey Morgan has been everywhere. But, when it comes to romantic endeavors, his relationship with fellow actor Hilarie Burton is the thing that got the most attention.
The couple began dating in 2009 and a decade later, walked down the aisle. It seems that the 16-year age gap has made no difference to them, even when it came to starting a family.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones (25 Years)
Perhaps one of Hollywood’s most dazzling couples, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have been together for over two decades. When they initially started dating, there was a lot of talk about the 25-year age gap and its effect on their relationship.
Clearly, their age difference has nothing on them, as they’ve been happily married for quite a long time — despite having to face serious issues over the years.
