21 Age Gaps Between Actors Who Played Parent And Child That Will Shock You!

In reality, the usual age for a woman to have a marriage is 20 to 25 and the appropriate time for her to have a child is about 26 to 27. So it means the normal age gap between a mother or a father and their child should be over 20 years. However, in the movie, thanks to the makeup artists and the masquerade art, sometimes the actor who plays the mother role is younger than the actor who plays the daughter or son role. Everything can happen in a movie, as long as we know how to fake it, right? Let’s see what age gaps will make you surprised!
