Tilda Swinton is kind of my hero. First of all, she is an astounding actress. Secondly, she makes seriously daring fashion choices and does avant garde androgyny better than, like, anyone. Third, this hot wooly man is her boyfriend. His name is Sandro Kopp, he’s a German-born artist and sometime actor, they’re been together for years, and, oh yeah, he is 18 years younger than Tilda. Get. It. Girl.
It’s all-too-common to see a famous man with a much younger woman on his arm, so I can’t help but revel for a moment in the thrill of seeing Tilda strolling arm-in-arm with her sexy younger beau. And why stop there? These eight other famous women have seriously sexy younger lovers on their arms too…
Perhaps it’s my loyalty to Princess Buttercup (from “The Princess Bride”), but I shook my fists and cried “inconceivable!” every time there were rumors that Sean Penn was running around on Robin Wright, his wife of 13 years. When the two finally split in 2010, Penn took up with a string of models, finally dating much younger Scarlett Johansson for a bit. Ugh, how typical, I thought. So it pleases me greatly to see Robin, 45, finally get some love of her own — and from a youthful source as well! She’s apparently dating her “Rampart” co-star Ben Foster — an ex of Kirsten Dunst — who is 14 years younger at 31. [Just Jared]
