Aaron Taylor-Johnson has had starring roles in major blockbuster films like Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Kickass, and Bullet Train.

But every time the actor's name is mentioned, it isn't long before the subject of his marriage comes up.

You see, Aaron, 32, is married to director Sam Taylor-Johnson, 55.

That's an age-gap of 26 years.

While some can over look the more than two-decade difference between Aaron and Sam, they're more concerned by how young Aaron was when he met her.

The British actor met his now-wife on the set of the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy - Sam's directorial debut - when he was just 18-years-old.

That same year, Sam and her then-husband Jay Jopling announced that they were separating after 11 years of marriage.

Three years later, Aaron and Sam tied the knot, and the couple now share two children together, daughters Wylda and Romy.

By now, Aaron and Sam have heard almost everyone's thoughts on their unconventional relationship, and both of them are pretty tired of it.

In an interview with Larry King a few years ago, Sam and Aaron were asked what she made about the intense criticism and speculation over her relationship with Aaron.

Larry also noted that he, too, had a 26 year age gap with his wife, but suspected that the only reason it's more of an issue for Sam and Aaron is because it's the woman who's older than the man.

The Fifty Shades of Grey director told Larry: "I feel like it’s one of the last taboos. I feel like everyone comes at me with it in most interviews.

“It’s interesting because, like you said, I’m sure people don’t ask you often but they do ask me. It makes people feel like they should have something to say and have an opinion on it."

Aaron then chimed in: "I've never really noticed an age gap at all. Spiritually, on a level, I feel like we've only ever been connected as soul mates, so I've never really noticed."

On how they manage to push past all the hate their relationship gets in the public eye, Aaron mused: "I think you just learn to... from that point onwards... I sort of didn't really pay attention to anything that had to be said about... cause I don't really care.

"And also, I know that then I'm not following... I'm doing what's natural to me and instinctive to me.

"I know that I'm following my own voice. And we do it together, so it's never really bothered me."
