Cuffing season is coming in hot, and celebs are kicking it off with some wild relationship announcements. Princess Di’s 29-year-old niece marrying an old mystery man? Dennis Quaid, nearly 70 years old, trying for a fourth marriage with a PhD student? Madonna dating her backup dancer?
What is going on?
Be sure to take the poll after each couple to let us know: Are they creepy or not?
The Parent Trap star Dennis Quaid is 65. He recently proposed to Laura Savoie, who’s 26. That’s a 39-year age gap. Oh, and this will be his fourth marriage, BTW.
Laura Savoie is a PhD student of Philosophy at the University of Texas. She was valedictorian as an undergrad at Pepperdine University in California, where she somehow connected with and dated actor Jeremy Piven (54) for awhile.
Twitter had a field day with this engagement announcement, and it was amazing. Dennis Quaid’s costar in The Parent Trap (1998), Elaine Hendrix – who played Dennis’ young blonde girlfriend that his twin daughters hated – joked about Savoie needing to be wary of his twins trying to sabotage her relationship with the much-older man.
Quaid actually has a set of twins with ex-wife Kimberly Buffington, to whom he was married from 2007-2012. He is legitimately basing his life off the script of the movie that launched young Lindsay Lohan to stardom.
In the movie, Elaine played Dennis’ young blonde girlfriend, not totally unlike Savoie.
Watch out for those twins. 👯♀️ https://t.co/Rloat1gLCy

It’s rare that celebrities get in on the roasting like this, but man, is it amazing when they do.
Actor Diedrich Bader noted that Savoie was three years old when he himself was married. Then, actress Lea Thompson, who was engaged to Quaid for a short time while filming Jaws in 1982, jumped in.
She was -10 when I was engaged to him.

No updates yet on if/when Dennis is expected to be released from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s burn unit in Los Angeles.
What do you think: Is the man trying to set a record for most marriages in a decade, or is this just weird?
She’s the 21-year-old supermodel daughter of one of the world’s bestselling musicians, Lionel Richie. And yes, she is early-2000s reality TV star Nicole Richie’s little sister.
He’s the 36-year-old baby daddy to Kourtney Kardashian, with whom he spent over ten years in an on again/off again relationship. Of course, he’s also been heavily documented for years on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” as a rude, turbulent, hardcore party boy whose career title was “Club Promoter.”
We’re not saying he’s not hilarious on the show. Lord Disick reigns on, but with a 21-year-old as his Lady?
First question on everyone’s mind is: WHY?
Why is Princess Diana’s niece, a 29-year-old fashion model, engaged to a divorced 61-year-old? Why marry someone 32 years older?
Yes, he’s a multimillionaire businessman. But she’s already got more money than she could ever use. So I guess it’s…love?
Ooooooohwee! Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor give no effs about the haters. They’re not only going against the grain as far as age difference, but a queer relationship? This one may be more inspiring than not.
Sarah’s a 45-year-old acting maven who identifies as sexually fluid. She was once in a relationship with fellow actress Cherry Jones, who’s 63 years old.
Holland Taylor is a 76-year-old playwright and critically acclaimed actress. The two have been together since 2015.
That’s a long relationship, but it’s also a large age gap of 31 years. It does look like Holland could be Sarah’s mother. What do you think, creepy or not?
He’s a rich 50-year-old French banker, and his half-brother was once the President of France. Woah.
She’s a 33-year-old fashion designer who’s stayed mostly off the radar since her days of childhood stardom acting alongside twin sister, Ashley.
Maybe they’re very in love. I mean, they’ve been married since 2015. But judging by the looks of that paparazzi photo, we’re not convinced this isn’t some kind of weird performance art.
These two have a 27-year age gap.
In mid-December, the 61-year-old pop legend was seen getting cozy with her 25-year-old backup dancer, Ahlamalik Williams.
The dancer has been frequently popping up on Madonna’s Instagram account for quite a while. And his dad even confirmed the romance!
Madonna’s known for being wild, but this 36-year age difference is the second-largest gap after Quaid and Savoie.
