Director Sam Taylor-Wood Marries Actor Aaron Johnson
Director Sam Taylor-Wood, 45, recently married 22-year-old actor Aaron Johnson.
The 23-year age difference doesn’t seem to bother the couple much. Taylor-Wood and Johnson have been dating for more than three years and already have two children together.
”In the old days ‘controversial’ in a relationship meant same-sex or mixed races. Now, it is a woman with a younger man. That would not happen with a man.”
“I’m an old soul and she’s a young soul. We don’t see an age gap, we just see each other.”
E! Online reports that Taylor-Wood and Johnson were married in Somerset, England on Thursday. The couple said in a statement that they’d be using the surname Taylor-Johnson.
Wood, who already has two children from a previous marriage, said that she wasn’t sure about starting a second family until she met Aaron.
”Aaron, almost before anything started between us, said he wanted kids. He was very clear about wanting a family… We hardly go out now – it’s just us. Aaron has bought a set of values I didn’t even know I was looking for – family values. He is more grounded. He has been getting work offers which he has turned down because he wants to be here for the crucial first months of (our child’s) life.”
The two met on the set of Nowhere Boy when Wood cast Johnson to play John Lennon. Johnson’s most famous role came a year later when he starred in the movie Kick-Ass.
Do you think 23 years is too big of an age difference?
