There’s been a lot of talk lately (and rightfully so) about the significant age gaps between couples in movies. We even talked at length about why it’s so problematically portrayed and normalized in Hollywood films.

But sometimes it can be hard to visualize what kind of age gap we’re really talking about when we say twelve years, five years, or twenty-plus years.

Those are some big gaps there, friends.
