Dear Poll: Does Age Matter in Hollywood Relationships?

Age gaps between Hollywood couples are nothing new, hello Lance and Ashley, Ashton and Demi, even Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox, but for some reason, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal when you're a celebrity — am I wrong? Perhaps it has something to do with their fast-paced life in the limelight or all the experience they have under their belt, I don't know, but this new couple sure has people talking. Hayden Panettiere, 18, and Milo Ventimiglia, 30 were rumored to be dating, but according to these new pictures, it looks as though their secret is out.

I'm sure you all have your opinions on age differences in relationships, but what I want to know is, do you think it matters as much when you're a celebrity?

Answer me this...In your opinion why does age matter? I bet every reason you come up with I can give you a reason that you're wrong. I think people make excuses for age differences. If you feel like you truely have a connection with someone, are on the same level, and feel the same way about each other then why should anything matter? Race, sex, age...why does it matter? Just because society thinks its not socially acceptable (which makes me think they are just being closed minded and thinking either the younger one is too immature or the older one wants to e controlling or there's something wrong with them) Tell me if you and you significant other were 10 years apart in age difference and they were still the same way they are now..would it change your mind about the subject? If it was YOU that people were discussing about age difference would you change your mind? Don't sit here and say "gross gross gross" when you absolutely do not know the situation OR the people...most of the time age isn't a factor and people who are smart enough to see that are the ones that get the most out of their lives

age differences....in a lot of cases when women start dating, they choose someone who is older because of the maturity they think they have. i have to honest and say that i really only dated older men when i was younger (the worst being me: 21 him: 32...before that me: 19 him: 28) and i think i missed out a lot on just being young. the reason these relationships didn't work is pretty obvious...they wanted to settle down and i was young.now i'm with someone who is my age (25) and it's amazing how much better it is because we can relate to the same things.

i think what's more concerning is not the amount of years between them, but that she's only 18. i'm 23 going on 24 now, having grown up in nyc i haven't exactly led a very sheltered life and i can admit at 18 i didn't know half the things i know now a mere 5 years later. she at least needs to break the 20-mark first. my god, man...

I'm always trying to be open-minded about relations and love in general, but I must admit I find Hayden and Milo's relationship not ...well, too healthy. I don't think he's a perv or anything like that, but you know, she was still technically a kid (ok, a teen, you know what I mean) couple of months ago, and he's... well, he's 30. A very grown up man.

Older men dating younger women normally creeps me out, but for some reason, this pairing does not. The reason I normally disapprove is that there always seems to be a hint of the predatory in the male part of the equation. But with Haylo, I don't feel it, not from him. If anything, I have a feeling that it was Hayden who pursued Milo and not the other way around. No basis for this feeling at all, not like I know the couple. I'm just sayin.

Personally, I think that Hayden is young for him. It would be okay if she was a bit older like in her early twenties. I agree with some comments that there are huge age and maturity differences between an eighteen year old and a thirty year old. When you're eighteen, you still don't quite have enough maturity and experience as a thirty year old. Kids my age are worried about jobs, money, college work, and the opposite sex. Also, I wouldn't date somebody that old. If a guy that old asked me out, I wouldn't think it was my lucky break. I would be extremely weirded out by him. My parents would flip out on me if they would find out that I was ever dating a thirty year old! However, if they can handle their relationship maturely, then it's all right. From what their relationship seems like, they're going strong, but I don't see it as a long-term relationship, partially because of the difference in ages.

Lets face it: Milo is a typical guy looking for action and Hayden is a young girl. He's just in it to get some. I know what guys want ;) But hey, maybe there is a slight chance that I'm wrong...but I doubt it.

I think age shouldn't matter. I think it's all about maturity. I was mature at a very young age, 16 or so, but was I experience? Nope. I think it depends on experience and maturity. I've been with my guy for almost 4 and a half years, but I still battle the fact that I'm inexperienced with relationships, even being with the same person for so long. So regardless of hollywood, I think it depends on the maturity and experience within the relationship.

I'm 26 and my boyfriend is 39. He looks younger and is super-fit and a really cool guy. I know 39 sounds "old" but it's really not. Besides, I would like to think that I am mature for my age. It's just a matter of who you get along with and whether or not you're in the same place at the time when you meet. We've been togehter almost two years and I never even think about our 13 year age difference. it really just doesn't matter. My family is okay with it, his family is okay with it, and we are happy! :-)

I've always thought that what counts is not age (meaning "years"), but maturity. Like, Hayden might be only 18een, but of course she's not your ordinary 18yrs old. She's been in the show biz since when she was a child, she has definitely grown up faster than other girls.

its icky. but those hollywood people play be a diff set of rules.

I'm sorry but there is a huge amount of maturing that is done in your early 20s. Famous or not. So that makes a huge difference between the maturity levels of these two. A 12 year difference isn't that big of a deal when the youngest of the two is in his/her mid-upper 20s. But seriously, this is just wrong and it grosses me out.
