9 Celebrities Who Have Dated Teens — Is Leo’s New Girlfriend 19?
Celeb guys often date much younger women, but some famous dudes have had girlfriends who are still in their teens.
It’s not as shocking when it’s a 20-something dating someone younger — but when the older lovebird is in his or her 30s, 40s, or 50s, we raise our eyebrows.
With that in mind, here are some famous examples of celebs who have dated teenagers — some of whom had us looking up age-of-consent laws!
Henry Cavill, Tara King
The Man of Steel star brought his 19-year-old date, a student at Bristol University, to an Oscars after-party this weekend.
“People say, ‘Age is just a number,’” he told Elle UK. “A lot of times it’s not just a number. It’s actually a real and true sign of someone’s maturity. But in this case, she’s fantastic.”
(Henry, we can think of a lot of eligible 32-year-old bachelorettes. Pippa Middleton is single, right?)
