As we told you earlier this week, Demi Moore has found herself a new younger boyfriend! Vito Schnabel is not just a 26-year-old hottie; he also happens to be the son of renowned filmmaker Julian Schnabel and is a well-known art dealer himself! Ashton may have moved on to a woman who’s much younger than Demi — his former TV costar Mila Kunis — but 50-year-old Demi has hooked up with someone way younger than Ashton too! Vito is a whopping 8 years younger than Demi’s hubbie, Ashton! Demi’s new man apparently has a thing for older women too. He’s been tied to Australian supermodel Elle Mcpherson in the past.
We love Demi for living up to her sexy cougar reputation. Madonna and J-Lo are famous for dating guys nearly half their age as well, but it seems to be turning into a serious trend in Hollywood. We love that women are feeling less uneasy about going for a guy who’s a generation or two younger than they are. It’s about time! Nevertheless, a few young starlets have us wondering how young is too young to date a guy younger than you? Did that just make sense? You’re about to see what we mean…
Here’s a look at some of the hottest couples right now where the May-December romance idea has been totally reversed!
Taylor Swift & Harry Styles
Taylor Swift is famous for singing about her ex-boyfriends, but she’s also starting to become famous for dating younger guys! The country star who previously dated Taylor Lautner, who is two years her junior, then moved on to 18-year-old Conor Kennedy, and is now apparently dating One Direction’s Harry Styles, who’s also 18. Sure, four years isn’t a big deal when you’re in your 30s, but when one of you can legally go to bars and the other can’t, it’s kind of a big deal. When Taylor was asked by Rolling Stone magazine if her best friend Selena Gomez, who dates Justin Bieber, influenced Taylor in her decision to date younger guys, Taylor laughed, “Probably!” Taylor used to be known for dating older guys like John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal, but are she and Selena part of a trend in Hollywood where even 20-something-year-old women feel more comfortable dating younger guys?
Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber
Sure, Selena might be just two years older than Justin, but we can imagine that it’s an age gap that makes quite a difference, given that Selena is less than a year away from being the legal drinking age in the US. Does that mean she’ll have to wait two years before hitting the club scene, or will the two lovebirds just have to make do by partying in Bieber’s native Canada for a while longer?
Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling
Eva is a whopping 5 years older than her boyfriend Ryan Gosling. Ryan is notorious for loving older women. He was famously linked to costars Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams in the past, both of whom are older than the Ides of March actor.
Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart
43 year old J-Lo was 18 years old when her boyfriend, 25-year-old Casper Smart, was born.
Mira Sorvino & Christopher Backus
Mira Sorvino is 14 years older than her husband Chris, and the couple are still happily married. That’s the same difference in age that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher shared, though we can’t say the same for Demi and Ash!
Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon
Madonna might date younger men, but Mariah Carey marries them! Mariah is 11 years older than hubbie Nick Cannon. Way to go, Mimi!
Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux
Take Selena and Justin and add 20 years and you’ve got Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. We’re happy that Jen found her happily-ever-after with Justin, who is two years her junior.
