Quote of the Day — Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson’s May-December Romance

“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 brought 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 Wylda’s life.” Director Sam Taylor-Wood, 44, on her relationship with Kick-Ass Actor Aaron Johnson, who is 21 years old. She just gave birth to their second child together.


19 Year Old Kick-Ass Star, Aaron Johnson, Engaged to 43 Year Old Actress

I usually evade celebrity personal lives, but I couldn’t resist this story.  Aaron Johnson, the 19 year old ‘Kick-Ass’ star, is engaged to his 43 year old pregnant girlfriend, Sam Taylor-Wood.  This will be the third child for Wood, whose two other children come from a previous 11 year marriage.  Johnson explains away the criticism by saying, “I’m an old soul and she’s a young soul.”  Johnson needs to make a personal phone call to Patrick Dempsey.  Dempsey married his acting coach, Rocky Parker, at the height of his career when he was 21 and she was 48.  In a Barbara Walters interview, Dempsey said that he “needed a mother,” and he still has scars from the union.  I wonder if Johnson will have the same feelings 20 years from now.  Those two really need to have coffee together.
