When it comes to Hollywood (and Hollywood relationships, for that matter), it's not surprising to see some hot celeb actor dating someone half his age. It's almost expected at this point as many stars hit the town with a love interest who very well could be young enough to pass for his or her child. While such visuals have loss their shock value over the years, the creepy factor goes back up when said Hollywood actor cozies up to a gal who favors his daughter in the looks department.


After all, it's not their fault people don't realize they're a celebrity's daughter and not his date. (It's also not their fault that their pops tend to date people their ages, but that's a different story for a different day.) Here's a look at some famous dads who are dating (or have dated) someone who looks like their child.


  • 1. ("Honorable" mention) Ryan Phillippe

    Ryan Phillippe has a reputation for dating women who aren't that far off in age to his now 18-year-old daughter Ava. Let's see, there was Demi Lovato (Demi and Ryan dated when she was just 18), and 21-year-old Elsie Hewitt who alleges Ryan beat her. At one point, the Shooter TV star was ready to walk down the aisle with ex-fiancée Paulina Slagter who happens to be 26 and eight years his daughter's senior. Though these two never officially became husband and wife, Ryan does get a spot on this list because Paulina could've passed as his child instead of his future wife.

    Clint Eastwood's younger love, Christina Sandera, might be 51, but is 36 years the Academy Award winner's junior. To put things in perspective, Christina, is only six years older than Clint's daughter Alison, 45. Both Christina and Alison have walked the red carpet with Clint, so it wouldn't be surprising if someone confused his daughter as his lover -- and vice versa.


  • 3. Bruce Willis

    It's not too crazy to think that Bruce Willis's 29-year-old daughter Rumer might get mistaken for his date on occasion -- considering he married Emma Heming who's 10 years his daughter's senior. Most people recognize Rumer as Bruce and his ex-wife Demi Moore's daughter, but others might not.

  • 4. David Hasslehoff

    David Hasslehoff proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Hayley Roberts, back in 2016 after a few years of dating. Even with their 27-year age difference (Hayley is eight years older than David's oldest daughter Taylor Ann), these two are still going strong and seem to be crazy in love. (Coincidentally, Hayley also happens to be the name of David's 25-year-old daughter. What a small world!)

    But if you happen to catch "the Hoff" on a red carpet with his family, there's a good chance you might have a wee bit of difficulty spotting his soon-to-be wife. (PS: In case anyone is wondering, David's wife is to the right of him wearing black and white.)

  • 5. Kelsey Grammer

    Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte Walsh have been in wedded bliss since 2011. The pair, who have three children together, have a age difference (Kelsey is 63, and Kayte is 39) that doesn't seem to slow them down. What's interesting is that Kayte is close in age to Kelsey's oldest of seven kids, Spencer Grammer. (They're only five years apart.)

  • 6. Ronnie Wood

    The Temptations said "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," and it looks like they were right (LOL). Technically, Ronnie Wood is a Rolling Stone who happens to have six kids. The 65-year-old has been married to 34-year-old Sally Humphreys since 2012 who happens to be five years younger than Ronnie's eldest daughter, Leah Wood, 39.

    So if you happen to see the trio out, it wouldn't be far-fetched for anyone to confuse Ronnie's wife for one of his daughters.
