The queen of pop dating the king of ice cream. What a strange couple they were. There was a slight age gap between the two, and according to Vanilla’s story, she taught him many things he didn’t know about relationships.
They dated for just under a year and broke up because Vanilla Ice didn’t approve of the book she released at the time, which exposed him in a disrespectful way. Now, we ask you, Mr. Vanilla, it is known that the queen says whatever is on her mind, anywhere, anytime, and about anyone. What exactly did you expect when you started to date her?
Cher and Tom Cruise
The iconic Cher can get away with almost anything. When she was a 38-year-old lady, she got away with dating a 22-year-old young man by the name of Tom Cruise. Now, we aren't really sure what they mean when they say "get away with" in this context. It's not like people (let alone people in Hollywood) get punished for a relationship with an age gap.
He was just taking his first footsteps in the Hollywood world, while she had already built her reputation as a successful singer. The two dated for a while, not turning their story into something great. They were busier smiling to the cameras than actually trying to make something work.
Gary Oldman and Uma Thurman
Uma Thurman is one you just gotta love. And Gary Oldman thought that, too, back in the 1990s. Oldman was Thurman's first true love, as she once said in an interview. She said she was a young and inexperienced woman involved with a man twelve years her senior.
She also said that it isn't a surprise that their relationship ended when it did — less than two years after they tied the knot. Uma even took it a step further by adding that this was the mistake of her life. He was 12 years older than her, and what was done has been done.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
You might have thought this golden oldie wouldn't get a mention on this list. But how could we forget the Nicole Kidman-Tom Cruise love story? Kidman met Cruise in 1989, during the filming of "Days of Thunder," and from her dating history, it seems she may have a thing for guys who are shorter than her.
On Christmas Eve of 1990, Kidman and Cruise got married. It was Cruise's second marriage at the time. They even adopted two children, Isabella Jane and Connor Anthony, while they were married. In 2001, the couple split. Cruise filed the divorce. In 2006, Kidman admitted that she still loved Cruise dearly, and it wasn't easy to totally erase him from her life.
Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall
Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall are the perfect examples of "when a beauty dates a geek." They both starred in the 1980's movies, "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club," and dated for a short while after making these hits. These were 80s idols that were adored by teenagers all over the world who loved to see them together.
The fans grew up, and so did the stars, each going their separate way but remaining good friends until this day. Nowadays, Ringwald is married to American writer Panio Gianopoulos and shares a daughter with him. Hall is married to actress Lucia Oskerova.
