When it comes to celebrities, you can expect a little of everything when it comes to their relationships. There are many celebs that will date someone who is very different from them. This can lead to some very unorthodox relationships, including large age gaps. Younger female stars date older men and vice versa. But there are some men who are dating women who are almost half their age. It may seem cliche but this actually does happen quite often in Hollywood. And some of the celebs who are in these relationships with huge age gaps will actually surprise you. It is some of the most popular well known celebs who are included on this list. If you are ready to learn more, check out these celebs that are married to women young enough to be their daughters.
Clint Eastwood and Dina Ruiz
Clint Eastwood and Dina Ruiz had been together for 17 years. They got married in 1996, in Carmel, California, and were sure to keep their relationship largely out of the spotlight. When they got married, Clint was 65 years old. They have a 35 year age gap, and it seemed to eventually get to them and they broke up.
Penny Lancaster and Rod Stewart
Penny Lancaster and Rod Stewart are one of the few relationships with major age gaps that actually seem to be the real deal. They are 26 years apart, and have two sons. The two seem to have a very good bond with each other and do things that regular couples would do. Stewart has even made his wife Lancaster eat a $5 footlong, even though he is worth $235 million.
Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden
The age gap between Doug Hutchinson and Courtney Stodden is pretty astounding, and could be considered questionable. When they got married Courtney was 16 years old, and Dough was a whopping 51 years old. Their marriage has been all over the tabloids, and was especially juicy because Courtney’s parents had to cosign on the wedding so that they could marry since she was too young to consent on her own.
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva got married secretly in 2018. He was 68 and Alejandra was just 35 years old, but the two had been dating since 2014. They had both already been married before, so it is wonderful that they found each other. “I have found the quiet and happy life that I have always sought,” Geere said of his relationship.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
Eddie Murphy has found love with model and actress Paige Butcher, who is 18 years younger than him. They got engaged in 2018, and started dating in 2012. They had a kid together in 2018 also, resulting in Eddie Murphy’s 10th child. “The brightest part of my life is my kids. My world revolves around them — even the old, gray bald ones,” said Murphy to Entertainment Tonight.
William Shatner and Elizabeth Martin
William Shatner has had a very tumultuous relationship with love. His third wife sadly drowned in their swimming pool in 1999. He has been married a total of 4 times. It is great that he was able to find love again after recovering from the tragic way he lost his previous wife before meeting his current wife. He married horse trainer Elizabeth Martin in 2001. She was 42 years old and he was 69 years of age. “I was attracted by her beauty first of all, which was an old syndrome for me,” Shatner said to the Guardian. “And I think I lucked out because she had so many other qualities as well.”
