Unless you’ve been living off the grid for the past few weeks, you probably noticed that the people of social media have been taking on a new challenge. This is not the “Cinnamon Challenge” or the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” but rather the #10YearChallenge. Celebrities and everyday people around the world have been posting side-by-side pictures of themselves 10 years ago, compared to a recent photo. We’ve been able to see some of the greatest glow-ups of all time, but this challenge has also allowed us to face the harsh realities of our lives…
The Ultimate Glow-up
For the most part, the #10YearChallenge has allowed us to see just how little our favorite celebrities have changed over the years. We’ve also been able to see our school friends transform into beautiful butterflies, turning us green with envy. However, there’s only one #10YearChallenge that we should really care about, and that involves our world. People around the world have inundated social media with the stark contrast of Earth in 2009 and 2019, and the pictures are staggering.
A Strain On Our World
While it’s no secret that humans are having an adverse effect on our ecosystem, many people are blind to what’s really going on. The pictures shared in this #10YearChallenge have given people the chance to really see how much we have destroyed the world in just the past decade. In 2017 alone, deforestation destroyed a whopping 40 football fields’ worth of trees. However, that wasn’t for the whole year. It wasn’t even for a whole month. We lost those trees every single minute. Not only does deforestation drastically impact the ozone layer and the quality of our air, but it also destroys the habits of animals who call these forests their home.
More than anything, this #10YearChallenge allowed us to see just how global warming has transformed our world. These side-by-side pictures show depleting ice caps, the increasing temperature of the world, and rising sea levels. Alongside this, these pictures also show animals that are disappearing at an alarming rate.
While social media challenges are often fun and exciting, there are some challenges that require action. By posting these photos for the #10YearChallenge, activists hope that people will become more aware of the fact that we need to act now.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher (18 years)
Eddie Murphy’s rollercoaster love life has been no secret in the media, but hopefully, his most recent love interest, Paige Butcher, will change his past reputation. The Nutty Professor actor became linked to model Butcher — with whom he has an 18-year age gap, and their romance quickly developed with the welcoming of their first daughter, and Murphy’s ninth child, in 2016. One can only hope he faces no more “irreconcilable differences” as he had with past lovers, and this relationship is the real deal.
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim (20 years)
Nicolas Cage is a hugely successful actor in Hollywood, but it seemed he wasn’t having much luck in his love life till he met Alice Kim. Having been married twice before, it was Kim that won his heart when he met the former waitress, and they got married soon after in 2004. Over fifteen years later, they have lasted longer than many couples in Hollywood, so it seems that their 20 year age gap has done the couple no harm in their relationship.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy (17 years)
Mary-Kate Olsen may have grown up in the limelight alongside her twin sister Ashley, but now she has a new partner to share her life with. Even with a 17 year age difference, the former child star fell for the former French president’s half-brother, Olivier Sarkozy, and the pair married in 2015. At one time, her sister was also with a man who was 28 years older than her, so Mary-Kate and Olivier’s age gap seems like nothing in comparison!
Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko (13 years)
Thinking about their age difference is probably not the first thing when you look at this couple since they have very different careers, backgrounds, and even height. The couple also has a 13-year age difference just to add to the mix, but all of it has seemed to work for the couple. While Heroes actress Panettiere and her Ukrainian boxer husband Wladimir Klitschko have been on-and-off since their relationship began in 2009, they seem to be going strong. They welcomed their daughter, Kaya, in 2004.
Elton John and David Furnish (15 years)
Musical legend Elton John is 15-years older than his husband, Canadian filmmaker David Furnish. However, age has never been an issue in this relationship, having lasted for more than two decades. This happy duo was among the first couples in the UK to form a civil partnership before it became legal and they went on to have two sons, Zachary and Elijah. Their relationship has not only impacted them, but they have become celebrity icons for same-sex marriages, making it even better!
Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z (12 years)
Beyoncé may have sung about a former flame being replaceable, but that is not the case with her longtime beau, Jay-Z. The powerful music duo, who have a 12-year age gap, have been in a relationship since 2008 and have three children together. They may like to keep their relationship on the down-low, but no one can get enough of the pair and their lifestyles, which they, fortunately, gave a glimpse of when they toured together. The couple that tour together, certainly stay together.
Bruce and Emma Willis (23 years)
Bruce Willis was once married to fellow actress Demi Moore for 13 years, with whom he shares three daughters. However, they amicably divorced and both famous faces went on to marry again and to someone who was significantly younger than them. While Demi’s relationship with her ex-husband and fellow actor, Ashton Kutcher, failed to last, Bruce’s marriage to Emma Heming seems to be having much more success even though they have a 23 year age difference. Together the couple have two daughters.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas (25 years)
They share the same birthday, but Catherine Zeta-Jone and Michal Douglas were born 25 years apart. While their large age gap has continued to be a major discussion since they married in 2000, the happy couple has proven that age is nothing but a number. Even with a brief split, the pair knew they are meant to be.
David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts (27 years)
Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has had ladies swooning over him for decades, but the latest girl to steal his heart is 27 years his junior. His longtime girlfriend Hayley Roberts shares the same name as Hasselhoff’s daughter from a previous marriage, but their long-term relationship resulted in the duo becoming engaged in 2016. Having been married and divorced twice previously, here’s to hoping that third time is a charm for The Hoff. Perhaps the age difference is what will make all the difference this time around.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham (20 years)
When Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whitely got together in 2010, the couple soon became a powerful British duo and were a significant media topic. The Transporter actor and his strikingly beautiful model fiancé have a 20 year age gap, but that has not stopped their love from blossoming ever since they met. In June 2017, Rosie Huntington-Whitely gave birth to their son, Jack, and judging by his parent’s looks, we are sure Jack is going to be very genetically gifted.
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo (10 years)
Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, married his model girlfriend, Behati Prinsloo when he was 35, and she was 25. Regardless of the decade that separates the two, they have managed to build a beautiful relationship with one another. After marrying in 2014, the couple welcomed their first child, Dusty, three years later. So, while he is not owning the stage and giving a star-studded performance, he is with his loving family. They also continue to make public appearances with one another, and the chemistry between the talented pair is palpable.
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis (9 years)
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis started dating in 2011 and hit it off instantly. It did not seem to bother them that they had a 9-year age difference, and two years after meeting, they were engaged. Although they still have not officially married, the couple is going strong and, at the age of 42, Jason and his partner, Olivia, aged 33, are happy in love. They also have had two children while being together – a boy named Alexander, and a daughter named Daisy.
William H. Macy And Felicity Huffman (12 Years)
Huffman and Macy met in the early 1980s at New York City’s Atlantic Theater and, for Huffman, it was love at first sight. The pair bonded over their love of acting despite their 12-year age difference. The couple dated on and off for 15 years, with Macy proposing to the Desperate Housewives actress multiple times before she finally agreed. After make ups and breakups, the pair married in 1997 and later welcomed their two daughters.
Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith (10 years)
Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith’s relationship is the perfect example if you are looking for a couple whose marriage can survive while in the public eye. The Irish actor met the American journalist in 1994, and seven years later they were married. Meanwhile, the couple has a ten year age difference, with Brosnan aged 64 and his wife 53. Nevertheless, they have surpassed the 20-year marriage mark, and their relationship could not look more solid if they tried, making them a Hollywood power couple.
David Schwimmer And Zoe Buckman (19 years)
The world may have watched his love life with Rachel blossom on-screen, but away from the cameras and the set of Friends, Ross’s real life was slightly different. Actor David Schwimmer waited till he was 44-years-old to settle down and get married. Schwimmer married part-time photographer Zoe Buckman, and together the couple had a daughter named Cleo born in 2011. The couple have an impressive 19 year age gap between them, meaning Zoe was just 25 when they got married.
AnnaLynne McCord and Dominic Purcell (17 years)
AnnaLynne McCord and Dominic Purcell shocked the media when it was made public that the two actors were officially dating. With a 17 year age gap, it seemed a rather peculiar match. However, the former 90210 star and her Prison Break actor boyfriend dated for three years before calling it quits in 2014. After a break from one another, the couple later reconciled and are back together following Purcell’s diagnosis with skin cancer. McCord expressed, “I’m very happy, I have my best friend back, so it’s cool”.
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas (26 years)
Alex Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Thomas have a whopping 26 years age difference between them and married when Alex was 55 and Hilaria 29. Nevertheless, the couple has proven that age is nothing but a number and they continue to show their strengths as a couple since they wed in 2012. Often showing off her yoga skills, Hilaria has not been shy to test her yoga poses while pregnant. The couple already has three children and Hilaria is currently pregnant with their fourth child, and their third son.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening (21 years)
With a 21 year age difference, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening are used to people addressing their age gap. Since they married in 1992, the topic revolving their relationship has always stemmed back to their age gap. “Everybody who has an age difference in their marriage has to address it at times because you’re at different stages in your life. You’re going through different things. You have to have a fundamental love and mutual respect for one another for it to work.”
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas (26 years)
Often seen on social media flaunting her fabulous yoga skills, Hilaria sure seems to know what is good for her wellbeing. Given that, she must have known that marrying Alex Baldwin, who is 26-years-old her senior, was also what was best for her! Regardless of their large age difference, a 59-year-old Alec and a 33-year-old Hilaria are happy in love with three children and living in New York, so age is certainly nothing but a number for them.
Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka (13 years)
Carey was once married to Nick Cannon, who was 10 years her junior, but her new toy-boy is her back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka. With a 13-year age gap, the pair came out as a couple after the release of Carey’s reality show, Mariah’s World, which showed Carey’s life while touring and her then engagement to James Packer. However, over the course of the series, it became evident that there was a romantic connection between Mariah and Tanaka.
Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston (31 years)
Jeff Goldblum may be widely known for starring in one of the highest grossing films of all time, Jurassic Park, but he is also married to a woman of which they have a large age difference. When Jeff married Emilie Livingston in 2014, the actor was 62, and his Olympic gymnast wife was 31, giving them a 31-year age gap. However, they don’t seem not to take notice of the age gap, living happily together since their wedding. The pair also shares two sons.
Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima (14 years)
Her ex-beau may be hitting headlines for dating a 19-year-old and getting negative judgement because of it. However, it cannot be missed that Kourtney Kardashian is also dating someone with the same age difference. With an age gap of 14 years, the 38-year-old reality star has been dating 24-years-old Algerian born model, Younes Bendjima, since 2016. The mother-of-three tried to keep her new romance under wraps, but since confirming the relationship, the two have been captured out and about in public.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi (15 years)
Ellen DeGeneres continues to charm an international audience with her daily talk show, but there is one lady in her life that was really won over by her charm, and that is Portia de Rossi. Even with a 15-year age difference, the happy couple has sustained a romance since 2004 and married four years later. They are often spotted standing side by side and hand-in-hand. It is easy to see that age should not stand in the way of such a strong relationship.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra Lee-Furness (13 years)
Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra Lee-Furness may have a 13 year age gap between them, but having been married since 1996, their marriage has survived over 20 years. Jackman knew it was always meant to be with his wife and bought her a special ring with the phrase inscribed: Om paramar mainamar,” which translates to “we dedicate our union to a greater source.” The couple is often pictured looking happy in love with each other and share two adopted children.
Sir Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell (38 years)
Sunny Ozell and Sir Patrick Stewart certainly take the prize when it comes to huge age differences in celebrity couples. The Star Trek actor, 77, met his wife, 38, in 2008 and, with their love blossoming over the years, the pair married in 2013. They did not let their 38-year age difference come between them, and continue to look more in love than ever. However, with a nearly four-decades age difference between them, it is hard to not keep this as a focus when thinking about the pair.
George and Amal Clooney (17 years)
She was the one lady who could tie down the most wanted bachelor in the world and, in 2014, it became official that George Clooney was finally off the market. It was Amal Alamuddin, who is 17 years Clooney’s junior, who won his heart after they met by chance at a charity event.
Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Trogneux (25 years)
During the time of his election, Emmanuel Macron was making headlines for his romance with wife Brigitte Trogneux. Although he became the youngest president at the age of 39 in 2017, people were had their opinions on his 25-year age gap with Trogneux. 64-year-old Brigitte was once Macron’s teacher, and the now married couple met when Emmanuel was a 15-year-old high school student. They have ignored stories of their unconventional romance and are sure to prove their critics wrong.
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander (11 years)
This couple seems to work together both on and off camera, having starred alongside together on the film The Light Between Oceans, where they met – the 2014 flick about a post World War 1 Australian couple. It is no surprise that Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander were attracted to one another since they are both, undeniably, very good-looking. Swedish actress Alicia is 11 years younger than Fassbender, but that did not stop the couple from marrying in October 2017, and they are undoubtedly going to have beautiful children.
Dick Van Dyke and Arlene Silver (46 years)
When Dick Van Dyke starred as Bert in the 1964 hit Marry Poppins, his current wife was not even born. However, when Van Dyke met makeup artist Arlene Silver at the SAG awards in 2006, it seemed that their age difference could not get in the way of their connection. The couple married six years later in 2012, and are still going strong. Any relationship that survives Hollywood is worth commending and, although there is a whopping 46-year difference, they have proven it is real love.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green (13 years)
When actress Megan Fox and fellow actor Brian Austin Green began dating in 2004, Fox was just 18 years old. With Green 13 years older, he was already in his thirties, but the pair developed an affection for one another, which resulted in a Hawaiian wedding in 2010. While the beautiful couple managed to keep their relationship going, with two kids along the way, they briefly split in 2015. It was then announced that Fox was pregnant with their third child, and their relationship seemed to be back on track!
Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne (10 years)
Cheryl Cole first met Liam Payne when he was just 14 years old and auditioning for The X Factor UK. At the time, the pop singer was a judge on the show and later married her second husband. It was then, years later, that the British pop stars became romantically involved with one another, regardless of their 10-year age difference. With two failed marriages under her belt, it seems that Cheryl has found true love with Liam and in 2016, gave birth to their son, Bear.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively met when they were filming Green Lantern in 2010. Soon after, the pair went from friends to romantic partners, and later to husband and wife. They married in 2012 and have since welcomed two daughters into their family – James and Ines. Meanwhile, Reynolds is ten years older than his wife, but it seems the Deadpool star and the Gossip Girl actress work perfectly together. Even when they are often trolling each other online, they are certainly doing it out of love.
William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman (12 years)
You can often see Desperate Housewives actress, Felicity Huffman and her Shameless actor husband, William Macy, walking hand in hand down the red carpet with one another. However, it took 15 years before the pair tied the knot, having dated on-and-off during those years before. Finally, in 1997, they were walking down the aisle with one another, and have since welcomed two daughters. While Macy is 12 years Huffman’s senior, they have proven that a relationship can sustain the pressures of Hollywood and have been married for over 20 years.
Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (16 years)
She is famous for her role as Peyton Sawyer on One Tree Hill, while he played the villain in The Walking Dead, but these two actors have been a power couple since 2009.

Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson first met when a 42-year-old Sam was directing a 19-year-old Aaron on the set of the 2009 John Lennon biopic, Nowhere Boy. Although they have their fair share of haters, it seems that love was blind when it came to this couple, and even with a 23-year age difference, nothing was going to come between them. Since their initial meeting, they have had two daughters together, and it seems that it was a romance that was just meant to be.
Viola Davis and Julius Tennon (12 years)

Hall fell for the media tycoon regardless of their 25-year age gap, and when the pair married in 2016, Jerry was 60 and Rupert was 85.
