Rum Diary
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: 23 Years <br> When Depp and Heard played love interests in 2011's The Rum Diary, he was 48, and she was 25. Obviously, the age difference didn't bother them - they're engaged in real life.
Rum Diary
Margot Robbie and Leonardo DiCaprio: 16 years <br> The Wolf of Wall Street likes 'em young. DiCaprio is 39 years old in real life, while his onscreen wife is just 23.
Rum Diary
Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise: 20 Years <br> Blunt and Cruise co-star in this week's Edge of Tomorrow — Blunt is 31, while her love interest Cruise is 51.
Rum Diary
Keira Knightley and Steve Carell: 22 Years <br> In Seeking a Friend For the End of the World, the relationship of Knightley and Carell's characters turns romantic, despite their age difference (at the time, he was 49, and she was 27).
Rum Diary
Colin Firth and Emma Stone: 28 Years <br> They're both ridiculously cute and both charming in the Magic in the Moonlight trailer, but in real life, Firth is 53, while Stone is 25. Yep, old enough to be her father.
Rum Diary
Emma Stone and Sean Penn: 28 Years <br> Now 53, Penn played the gangster boyfriend to young Stone, who's 25, in 2013's Gangster Squad. That's just three years older than Penn's oldest daughter Dylan.
Rum Diary
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper: 16 Years <br> Silver Linings Playbook stars Lawrence, 23, and Cooper, 39, have heaps of chemistry, which makes you forget about their age difference on screen. They'll also pair up again in Serena as husband and wife.
Rum Diary
Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale: 17 Years <br> Cooper isn't Lawrence's oldest love interest, though: 40-year-old Bale played her husband in American Hustle.
Rum Diary
Harrison Ford and Anne Heche: 26 Years <br> Sure, the man who played Indiana Jones still looks great for his age, but when he co-starred with Anne Heche in 1998's Six Days Seven Nights, he was 55, and she was 29.
Rum Diary
Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig: 17 Years <br> He's extremely sexy, but the age gap between Craig and Mara, lovers in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is pretty wide. she was 29.

It's kind of like the Matthew McConaughey character Wooderson's dream has come true in Hollywood, because leading men seem to be getting older, while their love interests stay the same age: young.

This week, Tom Cruise is matched up with Emily Blunt, who's quite a bit younger than him, but that's nothing compared to some of the age differences you're about to see.

And keep in mind that these are from movies where the age difference isn't part of the movie's plot, or necessarily mentioned as an obstacle to their relationship.
