15 Weird (and Sometimes Weirdly Creepy) Age Gaps in Fiction

Hollywood loves a good age gap. Just look at Leonardo DiCaprio and any of his girlfriends, or literally just any male actor over 50. But it’s not just off-screen – sometimes that good romantic interest carries onto the silver screen, resulting in 21-year-olds dating 13-year-olds, which is weird and bad enough as it is… But then you get into the real weird stuff. No, no, not that kinda weird stuff. Get your head outta the gutter, come on. 

We’re talking about magic, folks. You think age gaps are weird in Hollywood? Wait until you see outer space, or the edge of time, or under the sea. Here are the weirdest magical age gap romances of all time (plus two horrible ones we could not bear not mentioning, seriously, it’s very bad). Dishonorable mention goes to every single manga or anime with a 7,000-year-old eight-year-old girl, and also to Inuyasha just because.
