15 Young Actresses Who Are 10+ Years Younger Than Male Movie Love Interest
There’s something fishy going on in the world of showbiz; something more than a few outlets have referred to as an “older-man problem.” As you may’ve noticed, Hollywood likes to pair its older men with younger women. In 2015, Vulture pointed out that Emma Stone had four on-screen love interests who were over 40 throughout the last cinematic year, when she was a mere 26 at the time, and Jennifer Lawrence‘s on-screen romance partners were pretty much all middle age, apart from her fellow Hunger Games stars. It’s not always a harmful issue, but, like, why does it happen all.the.time?
Throughout the past few years, some YA movies have pushed it, like The DUFF, in which Bella Thorne & Robbie Amell played girlfriend & boyfriend, despite their real-life 9-year age gap, and Vampire Academy, in which Zoey Deutch & Danila Kozlovsky nearly had sex, despite their real-life 9-year age gap. Others went all the way, featuring 20-something actresses who are more than 10 years younger than her male movie love interest. Here are 15 of those young stars:
LOVE INTEREST: James Franco (Spring Breakers)
AGE DIFFERENCE: 10.5 years
Okay, so ~love~ interest is probably the wrong way to describe James Franco's Spring Breakers character to Vanessa Hudgens'. How about threesome partner or fellow gun-toting crazy person? Either way, it doesn't change the fact that they played tonsil hockey with their decade-long gap between 'em.
