George and Amal Clooney
George Clooney met his wife Amal one fateful day when his parents were visiting him at his home in Lake Como. A friend of his was making his way to the Cannes film festival and Amal was tagging along, when they decided to stop at the actor’s house. It was love at first sight between the pair, who got married not long after that day – when Amal was 36 and Clooney was 53.
Of course, in Hollywood, that age gap really isn’t all that shocking. But when you consider the fact that George was 17 when Amal was born, that kind of makes you see things in a different light. However, the couple has been happily married ever since.
Jerry Hall & Rupert Murdoch
When former supermodel and 20-year girlfriend of Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, cut ties with the rocker, the world anticipated what would come next – but they couldn’t have expected that she would marry billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch. After all, after spending two decades with a rock star, Murdoch didn’t necessarily seem like her type.
Everyone was a little bit shocked by the announcement, and critics all claimed there was no way it would last, but it seems that the 25-year age difference doesn’t matter much to the happy couple – who recently celebrated their 3rd wedding anniversary.
