Rock legend Rod Stewart is one of the biggest names in the business, selling more than 100 million records over the course of his career. In 2007, he met his third wife, television personality Penny Lancaster, and decided to put a ring on it. Fans were heartbroken, but Penny and Rod had found something truly special – even with the enormous age gap between them.
The age difference between the two is a substantial 27 years, and, as disappointed as some of his female fans may be, the couple is still happily married. And it seems like age isn’t the only big gap between the two…
Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond
You can’t always tell the height difference between two people when it’s just a matter of a few inches. That impression holds true for this couple. Tina Fey is taller than Jeff Richmond by just 3 inches. But when Fey wears her pumps, Richmond looks just how she likes to describe him—travel size.
They got married in 2001. Ever since they met in 1994, they have also been working together to produce great pieces of cinema and television. They both have breakthroughs in the field of comedy, including "The Second City," "30 Rock," and "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," to name a few.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Here’s another one of those couples where the girl is taller than the guy—Nicole Kidman is 5’11” and Keith Urban is 5’10”. This couple is always so lovey-dovey, even in public. During interviews and on red carpets, they steal the show with how sweet they are.
After her divorce from fellow actor Tom Cruise, Kidman gave love another try. And we’re all happy that she did. She has been married to country singer, Keith Urban, since 2006. One thing is for sure, the couple share the same roots, having both hailed from "down under," and are now enjoying life in the US of A.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
Joe Jonas rose to fame as a member of the boyband The Jonas Brothers. Like all child stars before him, Jonas has had his fair share of whirlwind romances before finally meeting the girl he’s going to marry. And then came along Sophie Turner, who took the world by storm with her performance in "Game of Thrones" as Sansa Stark.
And none of the past girlfriends were able to sweep Jo-Jo off his feet like Sophie Turner did. He stands at 5’7" and Sophie is 5'10". They started dating in 2016. Even with the three-inch height difference, they decided to get engaged and marry. When they decided to part ways in 2023 it was for reasons that are presumably a lot more significant than height differences.
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
David Cross might be best known for "blueing himself" on the hilarious sitcom "Arrested Development." But there is a lot more to Tobias Funke than what meets the eye. This adorable couple met on an airplane in 2007, when the actor actually asked to be sat next to the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" actress.
By 2011, the stars were engaged, despite the 20-year age gap that stood between them. In 2017, the couple welcomed daughter Marlow into the world. Although there has been some media criticism about some remarks Cross has made, Tamblyn stands by him to this day.
