Thursday Movie Picks: Ageing Leading Actors Cast as Much Younger Men Playing Alongside Much Younger Actresses

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today we’re talking about movies featuring a big age difference. In all the films the leading men are substantially older than the ladies!

#1 Pretty Woman

I’ve seen this film a couple of times, but it never even occurred to me that there is an age gap of almost 20 years between Richard Gere and Julia Roberts!

#2 James Bond

So, James Bond. I don’t have one particular film in mind as many of the movies in the franchise are applicable for this week’s theme. One of my favorite Youtube channels, Cinema Therapy, did an episode about it a while ago, so I’d recommend watching that.

#3 Get Smart

Here we have another pairing with 20 years between them. Steve Carell is 59 whereas Anne Hathaway is 39, or rather 45 and 25 when the film was released!

What’s your favorite film with quite a big age gap in the leading couple? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I gad to laugh watching the James Bond fest. I would never, ever want to meet never mind be with, Bond, James Bond because his dick must be ready to fall off from various VD issues but I love the series. I still think Connery was the best because that was Bond. Get Smart is a good choice and I never thought thst Gere was in his 40s and tgat Roberys was only in her 20s…such is life. It’s the Tony Randall syndrome. Check out his last wife’s age and his when they married. They had 2 kids!
