Who Says Older Women Can’t Date Younger Men? 7 Celebrity Couples Who Ruined This Stereotype

Date February 25, 2018 14:23

Love happens when we less expect it to. However, modern society is still full of double standards. When older men are dating younger women – it’s totally fine. But, when older ladies build their relationship with younger partners – it’s embarrassing or even a crime.

These famous women proudly show the world that they’re dating younger partners. Some of them are successfully married and say an age difference doesn’t matter to them.


1. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling

(Age gap: 7 years)


Ryan and Eva have a habit of keeping their relationship extremely private. The lovebirds met 7 years ago while shooting The Place Beyond the Pines and quietly started dating during filming. In the movie, they play a loving couple who share a son. In real life, Mendes and Gosling are the proud parents of two wonderful daughters.

(Age gap: 16 years)

Halle and Alex have been seeing each other for about two months and met through their mutual friends until they finally confirmed their romantic relationships. The actress described Alex as her "balance" in a sweet Instagram post.

At the beginning of their romance, the stars revealed they enjoyed having fun together. Romantic dates and night promenades helped them maintain that unique chemistry between them.

3. Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima

(Age gap: 14 years)

Despite the 14-year age difference, Kourtney Kardashian can’t stop showing off her hot romance with a former boxer, Younes Bendjima. They began dating at the end of 2016. The duo looks happy and relaxed together on the numerous photos Kourtney posted on her Instagram page.

In her interview with People magazine, Kardashian opened up:

 I really like my relationship with Younes, because it’s all fun and play. Thank you, baby, for making me smile.

4. Madonna and Jesus Luz

(Age gap: 28 years)

I think it was love at first sight.

That is how Jesus Luz described his romance with the Pop queen. Madonna met Luz on the set of a photoshoot. The couple dated for over a year.

A lot of people called their romance “totally inappropriate” considering almost the 3-decade age gap, but the lovebirds ignored the gossips and just enjoyed their beautiful story.  Though Madonna and Luz split after a year, the Pop queen said it was a pleasant experience for both of them.

5. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez

(Age gap: 6 years)


They are attractive, famous, talented, and look so great together, and the 6-year age difference is not an obstacle in their relationship. Jennifer and Alex first met on a baseball game almost twelve years ago.

Jennifer says the reason why her relationship with Alex is so perfect is that they totally understand each other. They both know what it means to be famous, have kids, and feel lonely sometimes.

I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever.

6. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden

(Age gap: 6 years)

Cameron surprised her fans when she became Benji Madden’s wife just a couple of months after her interview where she speaks against marriage:

I’m not looking for a husband or marriage, or not looking for that stuff.

Love comes when we less expect it, and it was exactly what happened to Diaz. The lovebirds got married in 2015. On January 5, 2018, Cameron and Benji celebrated their third wedding anniversary, and now they reportedly plan to adopt a baby.

7. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade

(Age gap: 10 years)


The 10-year age difference has never been a barrier for Gabrielle and Dwyane. In August 2017, the couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary. The actress became a stepmother to Wade's three elder sons from his first marriage. The lovebirds often travel to Greece, where they spent their honeymoon. Gabrielle told in one of her interviews:

I fell in love with him, I fell in love with Greece. Together we find inspiration for everything that’s going on in our lives and just being reminded to be grateful and have a good time.


True love has no boundaries. If two people belong together, they just shouldn’t pay attention to the age difference, social gap, or any other ridiculous obstacle that prevent them from being happy together. If you share our opinion, please let us know in the comments.
