Aaron Taylor-Johnson Doesn't Notice the Age Difference Between Him & Wife Sam Taylor-Johnson

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Doesn't Notice the Age Difference Between Him & Wife Sam Taylor-Johnson

Aaron Taylor-Johnson displays his huge bulging biceps on the cover of Men’s Health magazine’s May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 15.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On meeting his wife Sam Taylor-Johnson: “My life just totally flipped over. It went from a really bad place to, you know…”

On the big age difference between him and his wife: “It doesn’t seem like it. She’s such a young, beautiful soul that you wouldn’t even know.”

On having 4 kids at 23: “Everything in my life before them was an escape. I went from one job to the next, film after film, just try­ing to escape.”

On being called an actor: “I never liked calling myself an actor. From when I was a kid, act­ing was just something fun to do. I only recently came to terms with the fact that this is what I do for a living. I guess it’s because I grew up being told, ‘You’re never going to make it as an actor. You should always have a plan B.’”

    Awww how creppy.

  • Yeah Yeah

    Good for him. Wishing the best to both he and his wife. He’s a hottie!

  • fanny

    Natural thing to have child 5 years younger than yourself.

  • Lyra

    I know he’s got 2 but where did the others come from?

  • ForMe

    @Lyra: His wife’s children from a previous marriage.

  • laure

    @Lyra: It’s the children of his wife, he’s taking care of them too

  • Ha

    YUMMYYYYY<3 he's the hottest thing

  • Ellen

    Nobody would care about the age difference if it was a 23 years old woman with a much older man!
    People are just too hypocrite and too sexist! that’s the truth!

  • allison

    @Ellen: Not true. Most people think the 23 year old girl is using the almost 50 year old man for power, money, daddy issues or fame. She’s 47 and he’s 23. He says he went from a bad place. So we have to assume he had issues and this mature woman helped him with those issues.

  • allison

    Oh he is quite handsome and seems to be a very nice person

  • Shamu

    So he’s basically admitting this is a mother/son relationship.

  • Celeb Spy

    I knew it! He comes from a broken-down neighbourhood and he found the perfect escape/mommy figure. I’m sure they love each other but seriously, how many relationships are founded on NEED as well as LOVE. All the best to them.

  • Meg

    @Celeb Spy:

    He doesn’t come from a broken down neighborhood. He’s from a suburb outside of London and a middle class family.

    I like them together and I’ve always thought they’ll last longer than most people assume.

  • yuck

    grow up people. They love each other! Period!

  • Interesting

    D@ng hes gorgeous

  • EZ

    Did he runaway from home at such young age and so broke that he married that ugly hag and had to play babysitter/spermdonor too?
    Can’t wait what will happen when his career took off, will he pull off Ashton Kutcher stunts or just waste his youth.

  • Toni Soprano

    @EZ: I agree with you.

    Ugly wife he has but hes fine

  • truthis

    IMO(and this goes both ways for genders) i think he was at a vulnerable stage in his life and it seems like this girl (not woman) girl took a chance because any woman would not let this happen so it shows how immature she is at her age also if you notice she got pregnant right away! I dont believe that he wanted a family right away like she said. Im sure he meant one day but not thinking or giving him time she opened her legs. Read his interviews then and his interviews now he seems so confused with his life it’s like he believes his own happiness for this girl i saw a video of him being interviewed a while back and he was asked about how he felt on being a dad and step dad at such a young age his reaction to that question and his response was fear he looked lost but of course he answered with that same response on how happy he is. I’m happy he has kids congrats for him but he really is a confused kid and one day it will catch up to him. I feel for him.

  • Dommonie

    I wish him and his wife the best, but I would be lying if the age difference didn’t matter. I would not married no one that long in the tooth.

  • smellthecoffee

    This guy is a total d-bag! Or should i say his old lady. Everything she’s said before, he says also. It’s like she’s got total control over him and every body sees it and points it out, besides her backstabbing friends. I don’t have any doubts that her “friends” don’t agree with their relationship and since he doesn’t have any noone speaks up. He’s called all of us faceless cowards, but once he snaps out of her spell he will see who are really the cowards in his life. All i know if i see him face to face one day i wouldn’t hold back on my thoughts as I’m sure you all feel the same and that’s the thing how can we be cowards if most of us haven’t met him face to face? Goodluck buddy try finding any woman that will take you with four girl baggage once you grow sick of your old lady and file for divorce.
