Bradley Cooper And Emma Stone Join The Trend Of On-Screen Couples With An Age Gap!

GALLERY >> Hollywood Couples With An On-Screen Age Gap

The latest rumour buzzing around Hollywood is that Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone are in talks to star opposite each other in a new, as-yet-untitled, rom-com. The project, by Cameron Crowe, who wrote Almost Famous and directed We Bought a Zoo, is set to be filmed next year.

Whilst there’s no denying the on-screen chemistry between two such camera-friendly A-Listers, we couldn’t help but think of the age gap between the two; Bradley is 37 and Emma is 22.

Now we come to think of it, there have been a fair few big-screen couples with a rather large age gap, that is blindly ignored in the script!

Bradley Cooper, 37 and Jennifer Lawrence, 23

Age gap: 14 years
Bradley’s latest film, the utterly fantastic Silver Linings Playbook, is out January 2013. He and Jennifer are so good in it they’re predicted to be in the Oscar running, too.

Jack Nicholson, 60 and Helen Hunt, 34

Age gap: 26 years
They both won Oscars for their lead performances in As Good As It Gets (1997) – a comedy about an OCD novelist who falls for a waitress who is the only one who seems to tolerate his neurotic behaviour.

Mark Wahlberg, 41 and Mila Kunis 28

Age gap: 13 years
One of the biggest comedy hits of 2012 was undoubtedly Seth “Family Guy” MacFarlene’s Ted, where his voice starred as a real-life teddy bear who gets in the way of Mila and Mark’s relationship.

Liam Neeson, 60, and Olivia Wilde, 28

Age gap: 32 years
Now, this gaping difference in age could well be part of the storyline between Liam and Olivia, it’s a little early to say. They’ve been shooting scenes in Rome, her in a wedding dress, him hugging her (you do the math), for new film The Third Person. Scheduled for a 2014 release, it also stars Mila Kunis and James Franco.

Hayley Barrett (Thu Oct 25 21:56:00 BST 2012): Hollywood couldn't find an actress in her thirties? Very ageist approach.
