Ben Kingsley, Mary-Kate Olsen

It's the smooch heard round the world. Mary-Kate Olsen's on-set buss with Sir Ben Kingsley for the movie The Wackness has made plenty of people squeamish.

But while their age difference (42 years!) must set some kind of record for May-December romances, we figured there had to be some real-life couples in Hollywood that come close. So without further ado, here are other celebs who looked for love outside their age group.

(To be totally honest, we find the whole thing sorta gross...but also fascinating in a creepy kinda way. Apologies to all involved.)
