Jason Statham is 20 years older than his partner Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Their love story proves that “age is just a number.”
Rosie and Jason are one of the most beautiful couples in Hollywood. Their romance has lasted for almost 10 years. Rosie is a supermodel, an actress, and former Victoria’s Secret angel.
She became a model at the age of 16. So, she has been successful and rich from the very start.
Jason’s story, on the other hand, is quite different. He didn’t start his acting career until he was 32 years old. To make money, he sold fake watches and perfume on the streets. He was on the British national diving team as a teenager. He appeared in a few advertisements. In the ’90s, he was invited to be a part of a Tommy Hilfiger advertising campaign as an athlete.
Soon, Guy Ritchie offered him a role in “Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.” That’s how his breathtaking acting career took off. Jason and Rosie met in 2010 at the Coachella Music Festival. They almost immediately started dating. Unlike many other celebrity couples, they slowly and carefully progressed with their relationship. They took one step at a time. They weren’t quick to expose their feelings and liked to keep things private.
After almost six months, the couple finally began to openly go out together.
They caught a lot of media attention because of their 20 year age difference. But it never bothered them. Jason is known for his “Macho Man Type” roles… But Rosie loved him for something else. She said in an interview… “I was attracted by his incredible sense of humor, not the image of the macho guy that he portrays in movies. When a person knows how to make you laugh at the right moment, your world changes.”
She also appreciates that she always feels supported by him. In January 2016, Rosie caught the attention of the media. There was a diamond ring on her finger. The couple confirmed that they were engaged, but they did not talk about their wedding plans as they’d like to keep it private.
They’ve been engaged for almost four years now, and they already have a baby together. In 2017, they welcomed their son – Jack Oscar Stathman.
The couple likes to spend time off-screen and away from the media. They aren’t much active on social media either. They rarely publish photos of each other, except on special occasions. It’s just inspiring how the famous couple manages to keep their relationship so private. The duration of their romance speaks for itself.
