We often hear about older men dating women younger than they are, but in modern times, the pairing of older women with younger men makes sense.

“Older successful men are used to being in control of a woman, and that doesn’t sit well with modern women,” says Susan Winter, co-author of the book “Older Women, Younger Men: New Options for Love and Romance.”

Dating expert, Amber Soletti, agrees. She turned to younger men after struggling dating men her own age, saying “Younger guys tend to be more active, have less baggage.”

So here’s a list of celebrity couples that pair an older woman with younger husbands

  • Brigitte Macron and Emmanuel Macron
  • Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich
  • Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa
  • Tina Turner and Erwin Bach
  • Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade
  • Katie Couric and John Molner
  • Sam Taylor-Johnson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson
  • Joan Collins and Percy Gibson
  • Hugh Jackman and Debora Lee-Furness
