Tracy Pollan rose to fame primarily because of her portrayal of Ellen Reed, in “Family Ties.” This talented girl is two inches taller than her (equally talented) husband, actor Michael J. Fox. She met Fox on the set of “Family Ties,” where she played his girlfriend, but at the time, their romance remained strictly on-screen.
It seems, though, that fate had more in store for the couple. They met again years after the sitcom that shot them both to stardom. Then, the sparks were undeniable. The two-inch height difference melted from their minds, as a beautiful relationship began to flourish.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
Beautiful actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is a full 25 years younger than her husband, actor and director Michael Douglas, but that has not kept them from being happily married for over two decades and, quite frankly, being one of the most iconic Hollywood couples of the 21st Century.
They have faced some turbulence along the way, but for the most part, things between the actors seem to be working well. During one interview, Catherine revealed one of her secrets to a long and happy marriage: separate bathrooms. Hey, if you think about it – that makes a lot of sense. Note taken, Catherine!
Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles
Olivia Wilde met funnyman, Jason Sudeikis, in 2011, over a decade and two children later, Olivia left him for former One Direction heartthrob, Harry Styles. Of course, Styles starred in the film that Wilde directed - "Don't Worry Darling." The relationship attracted negative media attention, with her leaving the father of her children for a man who is 10 years younger than her.
Still, the two ignore any and all media, especially when the public implied that their relationship was on the fritz. In November 2022, the couple ultimately seemed like they wanted to move on. Despite keeping things amicable, they decided to go their separate ways.
Aaron and Sam Taylor-Johnson
Sam Taylor-Johnson met Aaron in 2009 when she directed a film that he just so happened to be acting in. The director was 42 years old and the actor was... 19. But the age gap didn’t seem to have any effect on the connection they made, and they started dating not too long after the meetup.
Just because they don’t have an issue with the 23-year age difference, doesn’t mean that everyone felt the same way. The couple was torn apart by several media outlets who criticized the morality of the relationship. During their marriage, the couple had two daughters.
Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt
Peter Dinklage was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. The condition has not stood between him and a stellar career, celebrated by a host of loving fans. Dedicated though his fans may be, there is someone whose love for Dinklage we can not parallel — Dinklage’s wonderful wife, American actress Erica Schmidt.
The pair got married in 2005. Whenever Dinklage is asked about his family, he delivers some touchingly beautiful answers. When one interviewer asked about his wife, Dinklage replied, “she’s very inspiring. She’s definitely the artist of the family. I am just the TV actor who pays the bills.”
