As we observe the romantic lives of celebrities, we can see a trend emerging: older men dating much younger women. It’s a curious phenomenon that has led to much speculation and discussion. Let’s dive into some of the theories behind it and take a look at some of the most famous couples who embody this trend.
Why Older Men Pursue Younger Women
There are several reasons why older men pursue younger women. One theory is that it’s a way for them to feel younger and more energized. Being with a younger woman can be a boost to their ego and make them feel more vibrant and attractive. Another theory is that older men want to show off their trophy girlfriends to their friends, making them appear successful and desirable.
From an evolutionary standpoint, older men seeking younger women could also be attributed to the natural instinct to find a young, strong woman who can bear healthy offspring and perpetuate the species. On the other hand, some speculate that younger women are drawn to older men because they offer financial stability and security, as well as a sense of maturity and experience.
Now let’s take a look at some of the most famous couples that fit this trend.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone (23 years)
It’s no secret that Leonard DiCaprio likes the younger ladies, which is a bit ironic when you consider just how young he was in the role that made him a megastar, Titanic. Over the last decade, this Hollywood heartthrob has worked his way through a stable of girls whose average age was in the double-digits younger, and to keep things consistent for good ole DiCaprio, he has scored himself a very young, and very attractive woman, actress and model, Camila Morrone, some 25-years his junior.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher (20 years)
Eddie Murphy is a comedy legend. From his time on Saturday Night Live, to his movies, to his stand-up specials, Murphy has carved a path of greatness that few will follow. Murphy also likes to carve a path with those young beauties, and is famous for making the rounds with his harem of young, statuesque women, including his latest, Australian actress and fiancé, Paige Butcher whom with Eddie now shares two young children, despite their 20-year age gap. It would appear that Paige might be the final one as the pair have been together for over a decade.
