All this time, at all these Kick-Ass premieres, we’ve been dwelling on Nicholas Cage‘s hair when the real story is how the film’s 19-year-old star, Aaron Johnson, is expecting a child with his 43-year-old fianceé, film director Sam Taylor-Wood. The couple’s 24 year age difference has raised some eyebrows, but Johnson says though that the age difference means nothing to them, explaining “I’m an old soul, and she’s a young soul. . .I go with what I feel in my heart and in my soul and travel by that, not by what other people expect.”
Taylor-Wood also expresses no concern for what people think of the May-December romance. Having overcome both colon cancer and breast cancer, she says “Going through all the crap I’ve been through, I don’t really listen to other people’s opinions. [I] just follow my heart and my instincts.” The couple met on the set of the film Nowhere Boy, which Taylor-Wood directed and Johnson starred in. Kinda makes you reevaluate your judgment of Ashton and Demi, doesn’t it?
