When people find someone to spend the rest of their lives with, it is often someone who is in the same age bracket. This is because they are at a similar stage in life, are more likely to have shared interests and they will often mix in the same social circles and this gives them the opportunity to meet. However, not all couples are a similar age and for some people, a large age gap works well. This is just as true of celebrities as it is of couples who do not live in the limelight. The only difference is that the media will often make a storyline out of a celebrity couple who have a big age gap. Here are 20 male celebrities who have married women who are much older than them.
