Aaron Taylor-Johnson Wants You To Stop Whining About His Much Older Wife

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | August 16, 2013 | Comments ()


For absolutely no reason at all, here are 27 animals who are sticking out their tongues but still managing to look more mature than Miley Cyrus while doing so. (Buzzfeed)

Kim Kardashian’s ass stepped out into full paparazzi view for the first time since she gave birth to Knorth West. Now we’re supposed to talk about her amazing weight loss. (TMZ)

Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow (formerly All You Need Is Kill) is doing some major reshoots, and producers decided to up the movie’s douche/creeper factor by adding Jeremy Piven. (Slashfilm)

While this is a seriously cool box-set design for Season 3 of “Game of Thrones,” how exactly does one file it away on a book shelf? Looks like it would be hard to dust too. These are the things that keep me awake. (Warming Glow)

Stella McCartney Instagrammed a photo of Gwyneth Paltrow jumping for joy in a very ugly (Stella-designed) bikini. Ugh, Goop. (Us Weekly)


Justin Timberlake will receive MTV’s equivalent of a lifetime achievement honor, the so-called “Video Vanguard Award.” This same statuette was previously handed to Britney Spears. Sad face. (Vulture)

Aaron Johnson, age 23, thinks age in a relationship doesn’t fucking matter at all. He is, after all, married to 46-year-old Sam Taylor-Wood, and they are now the Taylor-Johnsons. The funny thing is that Hollywood accepts older dudes marrying much younger women, but when the situation is reversed? Scandal. (Celebitchy)

Yes, we all know that the current young-adult generation is always the source of society’s downfall. Old dudes have only been saying this since Horace in 20 BC. (Mental Floss)

Gina Carano would like to tell the world that no matter who plays Wonder Woman (hint hint) in the evitable film, it damn well better be a film “that is done correctly.” Damn, you know even if Carano gets the role, the studio will eff it all up. (The Mary Sue)

Good news, Hey Girls. A new Google Chrome plug-in can automatically change every photo on every webpage that you visit to a photo of Ryan Gosling. (Film Drunk)


Will Arnett might be banging Billy Joel’s latest ex-wife, Katie Lee. I can’t even muster up the proper “Arrested Development” joke with this news. (People)

Awww, the titular creatures in Disneynature’s Bears are so cute that I almost forgot they’ll eat us all alive. I’ve seen “NCIS,” people. (Film School Rejects)

Heidi Klum must possess the worst fashion sense of any living supermodel … including Janice Dickinson, which is saying something. (Go Fug Yourself)

Teresa Guidice is desperately trying to keep her ass out of prison by throwing her husband under the bus. Bless her New Jersey-loving heart. (DListed)

If you’ve ever wanted to know how frighteningly dangerous the life of an NYC window washer can be, then feel free to pee your pants while watching this revealing video.

Kick-Ass 2 Review: Needs More Hit Girl. Needs Less Of... Everything Else. | Watch Tywin Lannister Knock Another Sap On His *ss In This Deleted Scene From "Game Of Thrones"

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • ,

    I didn't marry the woman, but ... when I was 18 I did that age span one year better.

    Why yes, Mrs. Robinson, I AM bragging.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I am really okay with the Taylor-Johnsons. It just makes my Cougar love for Josh Hutcherson not so bad... what is the age of consent... in where ever?

  • ,

    Heidi can't look fug, not ever. It's impossible.

  • Arran

    I'm not particularly offended by the age difference between Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife. I am, however, TREMENDOUSLY offended by that facial hair.

  • Rocabarra

    The Colonel Sanders look BARELY even works for Colonel Sanders!

  • fribbley

    I would MUCH rather see Jaimie Alexander as Wonder Woman. I love Gina and all, but Team Jaimie.

  • googergieger

    I don't know what the big deal is. I mean by the time I finish typing this sentence there is a good chance she'll be dead and he'll be filming Kick Ass 3: Seriously this franchise is the highlight of my career?

  • googergieger

    "Justin Timberlake will receive MTV’s equivalent of a lifetime achievement honor"

    Big deal. I found a World's Sexiest Grandpa t-shirt in a bin down at the car wash the other day.

  • pandapants

    Is Aaron Johnson a rogue Culkin doing Joaquin Phoenix performance art?

  • Tinkerville

    I initially read that as Will Ferrel dating Billy Joel's late wife and was wondering why he hadn't been arrested for necrophilia yet. To the coffee machine I go.

  • NateMan

    Gwyneth looks like albino jerky.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Jesus, Paltrow, I had more curves when I was a barely pubescent 13 year old.

  • kushiro -

    Me, too, and I was about 90 pounds. And a boy.

  • F'mal DeHyde


  • mairimba

    NOOOO!! I was supposed to "accidentally" run into Will while strolling the streets of NY and he was going to fall in love with ME! I just hadn't tracked him down yet.

  • Just reading your description of that video made my stomach angry. ::jibblie jibblie::

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Almost everything Stella McCartney designs is ugly. Her success pisses me off. So, irrantionally, does her giant forehead.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    Yes, it's ghastly. Though I've not as of yet paid any attention to her forehead, from now I'll look out for the distinctive nepotism ridge as it relates to her Tropic of Brain-Firkin and mark down how it intersects with her illusion dress nodules: Some follicles are well-known for their propensity towards inconstancy and larceny and I will not have that skulking around in our...skulk depository.

  • $27019454

    I'm with you. Taking it a step further, Goopster doesn't bug me at all, (and I'm easily bugged) but that bathing suit is an absolute affront.

  • I must be in a good mood because I'm not going to expand on how ridiculous Justin Timberlake or MTV are. Timberlake trolling averted, for now.

  • sean

    My thing is that no one would say a damn thing if it were a 40 ish male director and a 20 yr old female actor. That is to be expected. I don't quite understand why anyone makes this a big deal. If they are happy, let them be.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    well, first of all - our PLove editrix notes that "it's accepted" in Hollywood. Though I disagree to an extent - we still get creeped out by the barely legal dating the more-than-twice-your-age. (See Hayden and Milo, and, oh, lots of gossip.)

    For the most part, no, I don't care. I don't even know who these particular people are. There is something unsavory about the predatory aspect of the relationship starting at 17.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    We do get creeped out, we're not immune. Don't we all engage in a mass retch every time James Woods starts up with a new girl?

  • Deidra

    Yeah, I too think it has to do with the younger member being of at or near the legal age of consent. The norm does skew towards older men and younger women, but people don't seem to care that Patrick Stewart (72) is marrying a 35-year-old.

    Unless you're Hugh Hefner. Then it's always been creepy.

  • delle

    "...but people don't seem to care that Patrick Stewart (72) is marrying a 35-year-old."

    Yes and no. I don't give a fig that he's marrying a 35 year-old, but I give ALL the figs that he's not marrying me! Oh Sir Patrick, don't you know my love is eternal?

  • Quorren

    Especially since she was basically his boss.

  • AngelenoEwok

    Yep, power imbalance in a professional relationship matters.

  • Jen

    Sorry but if a 40 something male director starting sleeping with the female teenage star of his movie people would definitely care, in fact he'd probably end up in jail

  • Sean

    It hasn't happened in the first century or so of show business. And many, many male directors have had sex with teenage actors.

  • Jen

    I don't care that Sam is twice Aaron's age but the fact that she starting banging him when he was 17 ( and she most certainly did ) is the disgusting part.

  • This. He was 17, people! Only a year older than Courtney Stodden when she started up with the Lizard King. Think about how well public opinion went on that one.

    So, for people nonsensically stating there'd be no issue if it was a girl, you are either lying or wrong.

  • BWeaves

    Age of consent in England is 16, so if he was 17 when she started having sex with him, it was all perfectly legal. She wasn't robbing any cradles.

  • okayflint

    it's weird how people just base right/wrong just in terms of what's legal and illegal

  • Jen

    That's a bullshit technicality. 17 is too young for a 40 something PERIOD. And I'd say the same thing if the genders were reversed.

  • sean

    Why is it disgusting? I don't quite understand. He was physically and adult and legally of consenting age. They seem happy. I fail to see why it is anyone's business.

  • Jen

    You answered it yourself, physically an adult yes ( maybe ) but mentally, emotionally NO WAY not at 17.

  • In 10 years, that young man is likely to be a significantly different person, emotionally. Is possible they'll be blissful on and on? Yes. Is it likely? No. There's a whole subtextual conversation about marriage underlying this, but all of that brings us up to the cusp of judgments that we ought not make, at least not without more gossip-news information.

  • While I neither agree nor disagree with your original point, I can safely say that now, at age 29, there are days when I'm not emotionally or mentally very adult

  • Um, yeah. he wasn't of legal age everywhere. So if she crossed state lines at the wrong time, it would have been a lot of folks' business.

    And I get the feeling that, if the genders were reversed, there would be a lot more righteous indignation.

  • basse buus

    But legal age is defined by where you are at the time, otherwise the argument can be used the other way around

  • George Tarleton

    Sure, it may have been ethically suspect (although the "everywhere" thing is bullshit. Just because it's not a recognizable age everywhere does not invalidate it).

    But now he's a grown-ass man, and they're clearly happy together. So can we just let the issue go? It really, truly should not be a big deal.

    And I disagree about the age thing. There are dozens of men in Hollywood who have married and fathered children with women much younger than them, and it rarely gets as much scrutiny as their relationship.

  • Hey, I make no ethical judgments on these two. They can hump like bunnies for all I care. But I'm understand that folks don't like the idea of someone of any gender possibly taking advantage of a younger, more impressionable person.

    As far as the "older guys date younger women all the time" crowd, I would posit that:

    a) In many of those, the age difference is made moot by the younger half still being well into adulthood themselves (e.g. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones; Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa)

    b) In the cases where both the above don't happen, they do get scrutinized (e.g. pretty much anyone who has dated Hayden Panettiere).

    Of course, I have seen less snarking in my internet circles on the Taylor-Johnsons than on many other age-divergent celebrity relationships. They are kinda low on the totem pole, so to speak.

  • Fredo

    If the sex is good, why care what anyone says?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    [somewhere a NAMBLA member was suddenly struck with the perfect defense!]

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    I think I just swallowed my tongue. Oy.

  • Fredo

    That's not sex. That's rape.

  • googergieger

    Thanks joke kill Joey.
