12 Celebrity Couples Who Conquered the Age Gap

Psychologists believe that our perceived age is different from our biological age, and that’s why it’s totally normal to have an age difference in a relationship. For example, age gap couples are quite common in Hollywood, because they listen to their feelings and ultimately know that age is just a number.

Sunny once commented on their age difference, saying that it has no effect on their relationship: “He is so youthful and I guess I’m kind of an old worry wart, so we bridge the gap. It doesn’t come up much. He’s in better shape than me, which infuriates me.”
