Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar,17-Year Age Difference

Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar

Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica SklarThe name Jerry Sein­feld has become syn­ony­mous with com­edy. Despite land­ing stand-up gigs and minor sit­com roles in the ‘70s, his career really took off after mak­ing an appear­ance on The Tonight Show Star­ring Johnny Car­son in 1981. The episode was so suc­cess­ful that it led to reg­u­lar return appear­ances on this show and sev­eral others.

In 1989, Sein­feld teamed up with tele­vi­sion pro­ducer Larry David to cre­ate the com­edy series aptly titled Sein­feld. Set in New York City, the sit­com fol­lowed a fic­tion­al­ized ver­sion of the actor with his group of eclec­tic friends and acquain­tances. Through its nine-season run, the series earned 10 Prime­time Emmy Awards, three Golden Globes, four People’s Choice Awards, and six Screen Actors Guild Awards. TV Guide named it the great­est show of all time.

Sein­feld offi­cially came to an end in May 1998. But it was the start of some­thing new for the actor because the fol­low­ing year, he tied the knot with Jes­sica Sklar, a pub­lic rela­tions exec­u­tive who is 17 years younger than he is. In 2000, Jes­sica gave birth to their daugh­ter Sascha, fol­lowed by sons Julian Kal in 2003 and Shep­herd Kellen in 2005.

This wasn’t the first time Sein­feld got involved with a younger woman. In his early 30s, he was roman­ti­cally involved for four years with fash­ion designer Shoshanna Lonstein—who was a 17-year-old high school stu­dent at the time. For­tu­nately for Sein­feld, the age gap doesn’t seem to be an issue with his cur­rent lady because after almost 15 years of mar­riage, they’re still going strong.

    No men­tion that he met his cur­rant wife when they shared the same BLDG. address as her AND her HUSBAND.
    I bet her X hus­band will never forget.

      As they came home from their honeymoon!!

  • Sonay Bukol­sky

    Jerry looks fantastic!

  • Sassy3000

    A 30 yr old man who dates a 17 yr old is a PEDOPHILE! But because he’s a Celebrity he gets a pass from a lot of pukes!

    If a 30 yr old man TRIED to date my 17 yr old Daugh­ter, Famous or Not, That SOB would be behind bars!

      Our soci­ety gives lots of passes to celebri­ties, or peo­ple who have money. I guess it’s so the com­mon­ers have some­thing to strive for?

      Maybe that explains all the damn real­ity shows?

        You’re sadly cor­rect. Don’t for­get how if he wanted to slit her throat and that of a do-gooder waiter bring­ing back her mom’s sun­glasses, he’d get away with that too.

    • Aaron J. Kelly

      lmao. She is not 17 years old…she is 17 years “apart”…Honestly, learn to read.

      • Bar­bara Sincleair

        Aaron J. Kelly,
        He was talk­ing about his pre­vi­ous rela­tion­ship with Shoshanna, who was 17 and he was 30 when they began dating…HONESTLY, LEARN TO READ!

        This wasn’t the first time Sein­feld got involved with a younger woman. In his early 30s, he was roman­ti­cally involved for four years with fash­ion designer Shoshanna Lonstein—who was a 17-year-old high school stu­dent at the time — lmao.…Honestly don’t be such a wise ass.

    • James Brown

      No one will try

    • Col Klink

      No it’s the his­toric norm. He should have mar­ried her.

    • Miss Y

      Pedophiles are peo­ple attracted to young chil­dren, not teenagers. While I agree with you about the daugh­ter com­ment, 17 is hardly a child.

  • Dwight Hin­ton

    Sein­feld, you are the man. Go Jerry, go.

  • cookala

    I clearly remem­ber that the cur­rent Mrs. Sein­feld was a newly-wed when she started her affair with Jerry, they met at a gym. I’ve never felt the same about Jerry after that, she was a newly-wed, look­ing for greener grass (money) as I see it. And as for the 17 year old, that was just plain sick. Her fam­ily didn’t mind because he was a rich Jew,

  • Ron Paulyes

    sein­feld — one hit wonder

  • wiseone

    Age doesn’t define how well mar­riage will work out anymore.

  • flip­spice­land

    In today’s cul­ture, 17 for a woman is the new 25. The sex­ual ‘matu­rity’ —-which is the pri­mary motive men are attracted to the nubile nymphet—-of the women today, is far and away occur­ring at a much younger age than it did even 20 yrs ago.
    The result is, many times, that of Cather­ine Zeta-Jones, and Mike Dou­glas, and Wendi and Rupert.

    Way to address the state­ment about your lack of read­ing skills with a stu­pid com­ment about caps lock.

  • Fer­di­nand Chetler

    Wow, a whole site for hyper­g­a­mous women. Com­plete with arti­cles about douchebags who had no intent to keep the vows they made when they got mar­ried. Why do what’s right, when you can think only about yourself?
