Our Favorite May-December Couple Sam Taylor-Wood And Aaron Johnson Get Hitched

Director Sam Taylor-Wood Marries Aaron Johnson

What if instead of robbing the cradle, you moved in and started looking for a good school district to send the kids? That wouldn’t be so bad, right? Kick-Ass director Sam Taylor-Wood and her leading man Aaron Johnson certainly don’t think so; the 45-year-old bride and 22-year-old groom got married yesterday in Somerset, England, Us Weekly reports. The two are parents to toddler Wylda Rae and baby Romy Hero, both took the last name Taylor-Johnson and will someday soon be old enough for news stories to gloss over the fact that, age-wise, they could be mother and son. Maybe in 7 years? 8? Maybe never?

The marriage has been three years in the making; rumors of their engagement have been swirling since 2009, when Taylor-Wood directed Savages star Johnson in Nowhere Boy. Of course, we know empirically that age ain’t nothing but a number. Alec Baldwin is 54 and his fiancee Hilaria Thomas is only 28, and no one seems particularly worked up about that 26-year age gap! Though, even as we type this, we remember that might be because she wasn’t 19 at the time they got together. Oh well, who are we to stand in the way of love? Even weird love? Maybe weird love is the best kind of love! All the May-December romances in our crazy age gap gallery seem to suggest that it just might be:

Jason Trawick Is Officially Britney Spears’ Conservator, We’re Officially Kind Of Unsettled

We’ve had a couple weeks to digest the fact that Britney Spears‘ fiance Jason Trawick has been tapped as her co-conservator alongside her dad, Jamie. And even now that it’s all official on paper, we still don’t feel totally at ease with the whole thing. But star therapist Dr. Jenn Berman of VH1‘s Couples Therapy has been trying hard to convince us that it’s actually a good thing. “Other people looking out for her seems to have really worked well for her, Jenn recently told us. “It helped her in her healing and well-being. It seems like it’s what she needs.”

The singer has been under conservator-ship since her very public (and very scary) meltdown in early 2008, and for all we know it may have saved her life. Yet still, the whole thing sort of creeps us out. We just don’t like the idea of a grown woman’s husband being granted legal control over her food, heath-care and style choices. Plus, Britney and Jason aren’t even married yet! Not to mention the fact that he’s her agent. What kind of legal firestorm would occur if they split up? “This is a very unusual situation, because generally you don’t see conservatees get married,” LA probate attorney Jeffrey Cohen told People magazine.

On the upside, Judge Reva Goetz admitted at Britney’s conservatorship hearing that he was “impressed” with her progress. So perhaps in the near future Brit can successfully petition to have Jason demoted to just plain old “husband/agent.” But until that day comes, Britney and Jason will top our list of the most unsettling couples in show biz. Check out the rest in the gallery below!

Will Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Have An Insane Prenup Like These Celebs?

A lot of prep goes into a wedding. There’s the flowers, the catering, the dress, the ceremony, the guest list. And if you’re a multi-millionaire mega star, there’s the all-important prenuptial agreement. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in the midst of planning their big day, but rumors are circulating as to whether or not the power couple will sign a prenup concerning their tremendous assets. In fact, Forbes estimates the couple’s net worth at over $270 million.

Although they’ve been together for over seven years now, that doesn’t mean that the two won’t someday hit the rocks. And as the boy-scouts always said: be prepared! “The chances of them not having a prenup is slim and zip,” L.A.-based attorney Goldie Schon told Celebuzz.  “The fact that they waited this long to tie the knot, you can’t imagine that with this type of wealth and this type of stature that they’re not going to protect themselves so that they don’t have a situation in the future.” They certainly won’t be the first celebs with big money divorce clauses. Check out some of the crazier Hollywood prenups in the gallery below!

Brad And Angie Won’t “Be Able To Hold Out” For Marriage Equality

Brad Pitt, you beautiful, talented liar! How can we trust anything that comes out of your fine-boned face now? “We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids,” the Oscar nominee admitted to The Hollywood Reporter about his plans to lock it down with Angelina Jolie. “We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. ” We are outraged at your fibbing, Brad! No, we’re just kidding with you. Are we? Kind of?

Turns out that the six Jolie-Pitt kids have managed to pick up some conventional romantic ideas about relationships, despite having two unconventional parents. “They have asked, yeah, because … people get married in the movies,” Pitt says. Movies like Mrs. & Mr. Smith, for example? Hoisted by your own petard, Brad! Now that we think of it, holding out for gay marriage doesn’t seem quite so gallant when both parties have been married before. Twice. And to Billy Bob Thornton. “But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous,” concluded Brad. Alright…we’ll let this one slide, but we expect one sick wedding dress, Angie. Do not let us down again.

Kris Humphries Hoping To Annul Marriage To Kim Kardashian

Everyone get into the parking lot! There’s about to be a fight…over the equitable distribution of property and debt! Well, hopefully not, but that’s our first impression after finding out that Kris Humphries is seeking an annulment, rather than a divorce, from his erstwhile wife Kim Kardashian. After news got out that the NBA player was filing for legal separation, Humphries’ rep confirmed to Us Weekly that Kris is hoping a separation will lead to an annulment of their 72-day-long marriage, an outcome he sees as preferable to entering into potentially messy divorce proceedings. If a judge grants the couple an annulment, their marriage would be considered void; grounds for an annulment can range from anything from fraud (hmmm) to bigamy (we can only dream!). We’re assuming Kim isn’t particularly interested in a separation or else she would have, you know, filed for that instead. We could be wrong to smell trouble, but in the meantime…everyone take out your earrings and Vas up your face. Just in case!
