It was an April Fool’s joke, after all. When we discovered Jessica Lowndes and Jon Lovitz were playing us all, except you, Chrissy Teigen, with their Easter engagement announcement, there was a collective sigh of relief. Here are some Hollywood couples who have a huge age gap, but also manage not to gross everyone out with their love.
Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart, 18-year gap
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are still going strong. Although she doesn’t look it, J.Lo is 46, while her dancer boytoy Casper is just 28 years old. The American Idol host can’t seem to quit her beau, “reuniting” with him publicly after faking a breakup in March 2015. Whatever works.
Sarah Paulson & Holland Taylor, 32-year gap
Sarah Paulson, 40, and Holland Taylor, 72, came out as official in December 2015, confirming they were an item. The couple held hands at the Broadway premiere of "School of Rock the Musical," and the "American Horror Story," star said she is in love with the much older ”Two and a Half Men” actress, and they are still going strong.
Sam Taylor-Johnson & Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 24-year gap
“50 Shades of Grey” director Sam Taylor-Johnson met her now husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, on the 2009 set of Nowhere Boy, which Aaron starred in. The only problem was, she was 42 and he was 18.

They married at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in June 2012 and now their third baby on the way.
