When younger women get into relationships with older men, people always assume that it has to do with money and sex. But in reality, not all of these relationships are that black and white. Being with an older man can be just as emotionally gratifying as any other relationship. The trick is to know how to make each other happy.
One star who knows this well is 26-year-old Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who has been with her much older man, 45-year-old Jason Statham, for over three years. In a recent interview with The Edit, Huntington-Whiteley revealed what makes her relationship with Statham so solid: “Jason and I just make each other laugh. Most of the time we’re [pissing] ourselves laughing, whispering comments in each other’s ears. Oh, you know. Naughty stuff. I’m not interested in hanging out with boys. I have all the man I need!”
Things seem to be going so well for these two that Huntington-Whiteley has even hinted at the possibility of having children with Statham. “I always see myself working, but definitely being a mum will be a big part of me. Look, I think my career is very self-indulgent…I’m a model. I’m an actress. So it is very self-involved,” she told Elle Magazine. “I think there is naturally a point where you think, ‘I don’t care about myself as number one any more.’ I want to care about other things.”
Whether or not these two will have time for kids is a whole other story. Huntington-Whiteley—who already models for Burberry and Victoria’s Secret—has just signed on as the brand ambassador for a tanning company, while Statham has a string of movies set for release through this year and next. With such busy schedules, it’s no wonder a good laugh is all they need to make it work.
