Actor Nicolas Cage met Alice Kim in 2004 when she was working as a cocktail waitress in a nightclub and 2 months later – they were engaged to be married. Cage, who is 20 years older than Alice, has been married twice before. Sadly, even great things come to an end sometimes.
Although the pair did stay married for a good 12 years, they ultimately ended up getting a divorce in 2016. During their relationship, they had one son – Kal-El. If you think about this one, Kim wasn’t even legally able to order a cocktail when she said, “I do,” as she was just 20 years old and Cage, 40. If that’s not a hell of a barrier to break for love, we don’t know what is.
Bruce Willis and Emma Heming
You may remember that Bruce Willis's most infamous romantic relationship was his 12-year marriage to actress Demi Moore. The two stars had three daughters together before ending things in 2000. 9 years later, Willis said “I do,” to his new wife, model Emma Heming.
Willis is 22 years older than his current wife, but that shouldn’t come as a shocker since his former wife was 15 years younger than him, too.
Dick Van Dyke and Arlene Silver
So, we’ve seen some age differences in the high 30s on this list, but if you thought that was the thick of it – you would be wrong! Arlene is a makeup artist and dancer who first met Van Dyke in 2006.
Many criticized the age gap between them – 46 years. To put this in perspective, it means Dick is nearly 5 decades older than his wife. However, the two seem very happy together and are still married today.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
Funnyman Eddie Murphy has a total of 10 children, two of which are with his new wife, model Paige Butcher. The actor had been married twice before, once to the former wife of “Babyface.”
Eddie is 18 years senior to his wife, but you can’t tell by looking at him, because he looks incredible for his age! The couple welcomed their second child into the world in 2018 and are still happily married today.
Elton John and David Furnish
Music icon Elton John and filmmaker husband, David Furnish, were some of the very first voices behind civil partnerships in the UK. In 2014, they decided to make it official and legalized their marriage – after being together for nearly two decades.
The same-sex couple is separated by a 15-year age gap, which means they had two different fights to fight when it came to public opinion. But the two are just too adorable together to separate!
