We can think of many instances of male stars with younger women. Examples include the 51-year-old George Clooney and his present girlfriend, 32-year-old WWE star Stacy Keibler, and 70-year-old Paul McCartney and his wife, 51-year-old Nancy Shevell.
Sometimes older men stick with their younger women for a long time. Just look at the marriage of 75-year-old former playboy Warren Beatty and his much younger wife, 54-year-old Annette Bening. The couple has been married since 1992.
Whatever the case, older men and younger women has never been a big deal in Hollywood. In fact, it's so common that we barely blink an eye whenever a new relationship pops up.
But male stars aren't the only people who can date younger people. Look at 42-year-old Jennifer Lopez and her 25-year-old boyfriend Casper Smart. "I don't feel older, and I don't feel like I look it, either," says JLo. "So I am just acting the same way I have always acted."
It's so true that the "American Idol" beauty doesn't look her age. She's one of the sexiest women in Hollywood and can proudly stand next to any of the younger female stars.
Who are some other female stars who date younger men?
Demi Moore, 45, and Ashton Kutcher, 33 - Although the two are separated, the marriage did last for over six years. By Hollywood standards, that's pretty good.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 39, and Chris Martin, 35 - Married since 2003, the couple is still going strong. The "Iron Man" actress has two kids with her rocker husband.
Mariah Carey , 42, and Nick Cannon, 31 - If you thought the pop diva and her radio husband would separate soon after they married, you'd be wrong. They are as happy as clams, especially with "dem babies."
Tilda Swinton, 51, and Sandro Kopp, 33 - There's an 18 year difference between the award-winning actress and her much younger partner, painter Sandro Kopp.
