13 Age Gaps Between Actors Who Played Parent And Child That Are So Small, It’s Weird

Actors don’t appear to be able to represent their actual age in Hollywood. In films and on television, there are a lot of performers in their twenties who play teens. There are even performers who would put on a lot of prosthetics and makeup merely to play a character who is 20 years older than they are.

In the instance of on-screen parent/child duos that are disturbingly close in age, both performers are just a little too far off in age from their roles to make the age gap plausible — i.e., the persons portraying parent and kid are fewer than 15 years apart. True, we’ve seen 15-year-olds get pregnant in real life, but some of these performers are only a year apart in age! Although some TV parents are clearly too young to play their on-screen children’s parents, others will astound you!

#1 Tom Holland (25) was cast in The Crowded Room series, where Emmy Rossum, who’s only 10 years older than him, will be playing his mom.

#2 Kate Mara was 21 and Heath Ledger was 25 during the filming of Brokeback Mountain. In the movie, they played father and daughter.

#3 David Duchovny from The X-Files was born in 1960. Rebecca Toolan was born in 1959. In The X-Files she plays his mom, even though they are only one year apart.

#4 So Adam Garcia was two years older than Drew Barrymore when he played her son in the film Riding in Cars with Boys.

#5 In Orange Is the New Black, Elizabeth Rodriguez played Dascha Polanco’s mother even though they have a two-year age gap.

#6 In Jane the Virgin, Andrea Navedo and Gina Rodriguez played mother and daughter.

#7 Taron Egerton was 28, Bryce Dallas Howard was 37 in Rocketman

#8 In Mean Girls, Rachel McAdams plays Regina and Amy Poehler plays Regina’s mom with only 7 years gap.

#9 In Blue Bloods, Len Cariou plays Tom Selleck’s father.

#10 Angelina Jolie was 29 played Colin Farrell’s (28) mother in the movie Alexander.

#11 In 2009 Star Trek, Winona Ryder was 36, Zachary Quinto was 30 and she played his mother.

#12 Meryl Streep was 69 in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again while Cher played Meryl Streep’s mom is 72.

#13 In This Is Us, Mandy Moore plays Sterling, Justin, and Christina’s mother despite being younger than all of them
