More and more famous women are dating much younger men. There’s Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson and their 20-year age difference, of course. Meanwhile, Naomi Campbell, 48, is reportedly getting it on with One Direction–er Liam Payne, 25.
This Is Us star Chrissy Metz, 38, is dating Hal Rosenfeld, a 25-year-old composer. Kourtney Kardashian, 39, may or may not be seeing Luka Sabbat, the 21-year-old Grown-ish star.
We are here for this relationship-flip because who says that normal is only older men dating younger women? When it comes to love, there should be no barriers, age-wise or otherwise.
So in tribute to that, here are a list of female celebs and their thoughts on being with younger men:
Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao went public with her relationship on her 40th birthday with model Justin Huang on August 24.
She posted four photos of them together on Weibo with the caption “Love requires us to be together”. She tagged him in the post.
Her younger beau then shared the post and commented, “Be with you”, but he has since deleted the post on his new Weibo account.
This is not the first time Elva is romantically linked with a younger man. She was previously linked to Taiwanese actor Kai Ko, 28, Singapore businessman Elroy Cheo, 34, and Taiwanese professional golfer Michael Chen, 27.
Fiona Xie and Julien Leo (14 years)
Fiona has been dating her beau, rapper Julien Leo, for some time now. Julien is son of high fashion retailer Tina Tan-Leo and is only 23, while Fiona is 37.
The 14-year age gap does not appear to be an issue for the couple, going by a lovey-dovey photo of them posted on Instagram some two years ago.
The picture and his account have since been deleted. When contacted, the actress declined to be interviewed. She did not confirm the relationship either but we hear they’re still together!
Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davison (20 years)
We’re not sure they’re even still a couple but this was the showbiz romance that nobody saw coming! Kate and Pete have 20 years between them (he’s also just five years older than her daughter… awkward much?)
Pete, 25, and 45-year-old Kate emerged from a Golden Globes afterparty in January and get everyone’s tongues wagging. An onlooker said: “They were flirting all night and sipping champagne. They were outside on the patio and left together.”
They’ve taken their relationship more public since then by making out at a hockey game. Get a room guys!
Christy Chung and Zhang Lunshuo (12 years)
Twice-divorced Canadian actress Christy Chung drew applause when she married her younger boyfriend, Zhang Lunshuo, in 2016 despite their 12-year age-gap.
They married in a lavish nautical-themed wedding and were picture perfect IMHO.
Still, it hasn’t been smooth-sailing, the HK actress came clean about her troubles conceiving and says that she is undergoing fertility treatments in an effort to bear another child.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas (11 years)
These two reportedly couldn’t care less about the age gape between them, and it shows. For one, they still married each other despite the difference and that seems like the least of their problems.
25-year-old Nick apparently loves that Priyanka is older at 36-years-old because he’s developed quite a taste for dating women who are more experienced (a past relationships with Delita Goodrem can attest to this).
A source says: “If anything it makes Priyanka even more attractive to him.”
Sam Taylor-Johnson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (24 years)
As far as celebrity couples go, Aaron and Sam Taylor-Johnson have received far more scrutiny than most, but they both pay no mind to the intrusion into their marriage.
The 50 Shades of Grey director says: “If I gave a second thought to other people, I would be the unhappiest person, probably still in a miserable marriage,” she said in an interview.
She added, “People like to talk about it. I’m like, ‘Yeah, but it works better than my last marriage.’ It’s lasted longer than a lot of my friends’ marriages.”
Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble (25 Years)
“You find who you fall in love with in life and if they happen to be a certain age, they happen to be a certain age,” Kris told UsWeekly.
Shakira and Gerard Pique (10 Years)
“I’m so happy right now with Gerard. It took me many years to get to where I am in my life now. I wasn’t fulfilled or satisfied and I think Gerard was the missing link,” Shakira told The Sun.
Han So Won and Jin Hua (18 years)
Korean actress Ham So Won, best known for her role in Sex Is Zero, tied a knot last year to a much younger Chinese businessman.
The man, Jin Hua (based on Korean name), is 18 years her junior. So Won will be turning 43 in May, while Jin Hua is 25 years old.
The two reportedly met through a mutual acquaintance and Jin Hua fell in love at first sight. He told a Korean news outlet that he initially thought she was in her 20s, but even after finding out her real age, he wanted to marry her.
Kylie Minogue and Joshua Sasse (20 Years)
She’s no stranger to dating younger men but Kylie made it clear that Joshua is who she wants to be with when she agreed to the engagement. “He’s amazing!” she gushed to the DailyMail.

Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich (9 Years)
“He seemed much older than his years and age evaporated over time,” she said in DuJoir Magazine.

Susan Sarandon and Jonathan Bricklin (31 Years)
They might not have lasted but Susan stayed positive about her relationship. “It’s the soul of the person that interests me,” she told Hello! Magazine last year. “When you are in love, the question of age, sex, color no longer hold any importance.”

Eva Mendes And Ryan Gosling (6 Years)
They’re notoriously private about their relationship but, it doesn’t mean that they’ve not had their sweet and romantic moments.
Eva affectionately refers to Ryan by his last name and in a 2012 interview with Ellen DeGeneres, she was blushing constantly when asked about him.

Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden (7 Years)
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden may seem wildly different but, the couple prove that their marriage can last.
