7 Celebrity Couples with Shocking Age Differences
Katie Couric, 56, was admittedly surprised when her boyfriend of over a year, John Molner, 49, proposed. It's not that she didn't want to get married. In fact, finding a "life partner" was a goal she says she pursued "with some purpose." And for a while there it looked as if that goal was going to be realized with a different guy - a much younger guy. Katie dated Brooks Perlin, 17 years her junior, for five years. They even lived together before calling it quits in 2011. It's funny because dating a much younger guy made Couric - who certainly looks fantastic at any age - a hero to her legions of fans. But when talking about her current relationship with John, she described their partnership as "a little more age-appropriate." Hmmm. Maybe age is one of the reasons why her relationship with Brooks went south and why her relationship with John seems to be working. But for many couples, a decade - or two! - of difference is hardly worth noting. Click through for 7 celebrity couples with shocking age differences! -By Sarah Bernard
