Famous actresses dating older men
Last winter, she wooed the impotent Edward Norton (45) in Birdman, and a few weeks ago, she squired the similarly flaccid Joaquin Phoenix (40) in Woody Allen's Irrational Man, which played at Cannes.And then there's this past weekend's troubled Aloha, where the petite Stone feels so ill-matched with her 40-year-old screen lover Bradley Cooper that Hitfix's Drew Mc Weeny wrote how Cooper "comes off as a sad, broken old man who is attracted to her youth like a vampire."
