“It’s such an incredible honour to receive this award – something I would never have dreamt of,” Sam told the BBC earlier this year. “It’s very gratifying for an artist to get recognition at this level.”

Aaron and Sam are expecting their second child together – the couple announced the exciting news back in late July!

    I thought the guy was Jasper Hale from Twilight. :-/

  • Lol

    So this is how Vronsky will look in Anne Karenina. So excited to see the movie. But still unsure about this actor as Vronsky.

  • Rocky

    I love his partner’s expression. She looks like she’s freezing and is saying to herself, “OK, take the picture already”. The daugthers are too cute.

  • Kaly

    awe how cute. A mother and her three kids…oh wait.

  • speaktruth

    Their age difference is so interesting to me. I can’t tell if it’s gross or cute that they’ve overcome it and have a strong relationship lol

  • cookycookie

    creepiest couple ever. something very wrong with both of them

  • mimi

    She’s such a talented lady but very unfortunate to have a horse face.

  • popo

    her daughter and her partner looks more like a couple than her with him, weird :I

  • mel

    Every time I see a picture of them I wonder wheter his parents keep peaking to him or not. I mean, his fiance is probably the same age than his parents…

  • calli

    He looks like Albert Einstein! He’s actually quite cute without a mustashe and crazy hair. I saw him in a movie before and loved him, but now he just looks weird. Must be a british thing.

  • Chanel

    Her husband is only 7 years older than her oldest daughter, it’s creepy not cute.

  • wapik

    a moustache and blonde hair do not suit him.


    Love Aaron Johnson! <3<3<3

  • Lol

    @calli: This moustache and blond hair is for his role in the movie Anna Karenina.

    Let it be an older man and a younger girl and no one says a word! Do you realize how normalized it has become!? Isn’t it equally sick to see an older man with a younger woman is it is vice versa!? I can’t stand hypocrites and NO girls DO NOT mature faster than boys, i’m sick of hearing that propaganda myth to make it seem like young girl/old man couple is normal – it’s not! It’s sickening. And if we are going there, i’d say it is more sickening since men die generally die before women due to old age so it makes more sense if it’s an older woman with a younger man but i think BOTH are just as sick! But i am sick of the double standards!

  • Lulu

    Mommy issues.

  • Facts

    @Lulu: Something I’m sure you know about all too well.

  • ana

    @Kaly: lmaoooooooooo

  • Romeo

    It’s just as ridiculous when a decade-plus older man hooks up with a younger woman, #15. There is no double standard.

  • dillinger

    Aaron Johnson is a hot piece, and I commend Ms. Taylor-Wood 100% for snatching that up all to herself. Go cougars! Wish em the best.

  • topre

    The comments on here are seriously ridiculous. When half of the marriages in the western world fail why does anyone think it’s ok to judge a couple that has been together as long as they have. Save your vitriol for people who stay together for two months for publicity, or I dunno, any of the fake Hollywood couples around right now. Sam Taylor Wood is an awesome woman, and they look happy together. Get off your high horses. If you don’t like what you see, then I suggest shoving your heads further up your asses so you don’t have to.

  • Shannon

    It would be just as creepy if an 18-year old girl hooked up with a man 23 years older than her. He’s probably attracted to her talent/staure/power, as is usually the case with younger men/older women. I don’t see them lasting.

  • ha ha

    who is creepier those freaks courtney stodden and doug hutchinson or these 2 freaks?

  • Carla

    they are very attractive..

  • G

    She creeps me out. And now she has an OBE? I guess there’s no morality clause that comes with that thing. Sorry, I know some women look at her as some kind of icon but to me, she’s just gross.

  • Strpyre

    That guy is the kid from the movie Kick Ass, can you believe it?

  • G


    Nah, the Stodden saga sh!ts all over this.

  • Alexis

    @A: Um…with that age difference?! Yes, I would judge equally as hard. She is old enough to be his mother. A woman dating a man old enough to be her father is disgusting.

  • redesdale

    it’s 2011 and this is Chic, not freak. they live in london, she’s super creative and talented and successful, (love her mcqueen coat and bag..) he’s cute as hell and his edwardian dandy look and the curly moustache, is very ‘Now’. it’s called fashion. dur.

  • British


    Being too stupid to realise he’s dressed for a role, must be an American thing.
