Sadly, it's common knowledge that women in Hollywood have more of an expiration date than men.

It is also incredibly noticeable that Hollywood tends to pair a male actor with a much younger actress, as if casting a woman closer to the male's age is something so unrealistic and strange.

Below is a list of costars with staggering age differences.

1. The Wolf of Wall Street

Actors: Margot Robbie and Leonardo DiCaprio

Age difference: 16 years

2. Seeking a Friend For the End of the World

Actors: Keira Knightley and Steve Carell

Age difference: 22 years

3. Gangster Squad

Actors: Emma Stone and Sean Penn

Age difference: 28 years

4. American Hustle

Actors: Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale

Age difference: 17 years

5. Focus

Actors: Margot Robbie and Will Smith

Age difference: 22 years

6. Avengers: Age of Ultron

Actors: Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo

Age difference: 17 years

7. Birdman

Actors: Andrea Riseborough and Michael Keaton

Age difference: 30 years

8. The Rum Diary

Actors: Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

Age difference: 23 years

9. Six Days Seven Nights

Actors: Harrison Ford and Anne Heche

Age difference: 26 years

10. Silver Linings Playbook

Actors: Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

Age difference: 16 years

11. Magic in the Moonlight

Actors: Colin Firth and Emma Stone

Age difference: 28 years

12. Edge of Tomorrow

Actors: Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise

Age difference: 20 years

Anyone else noticing a trend here?

There is no reason why these actors can't be paired with actresses their own age, who are just as beautiful, talented, and known as their younger counterparts.

Unless the script calls for it, or there is a real reason, I think it's only fair to give 35-year-old actresses parts such as these characters instead of labeling actresses as "mothers" as soon as they turn 30.
