Sam Taylor-Johnson is mostly known as the woman behind the first cinematic adaption of Fifty Shades Of Grey. It made scads of money, but the reviews were execrable. And apparently, E.L. James, the fan-fic authoress who somehow stumbled upon millions with the book, was a giant canker sore with which to deal during production.
But all of this aside, Sam is married to actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson. He looks like this. Do you think she gives a shit about how nobody except sopping-wet matrons liked her movie? She gets on that on the regular. And she’s still looking between the couch cushions for the fucks to give on what anyone thinks of her and her husband’s almost 25 year age difference.
“If I gave a second thought to other people, I would be the unhappiest person, probably still in a miserable marriage.”
Aaron has spoken about their age difference before and said it never occurred to him because he has always “felt old.” If that’s old, I hope he continues to wither and gain decrepitude.
The couple met in 2009 when Sam directed Aaron in the John Lennon biopic, Nowhere Boy. Sam was 42 and Aaron was 18. They had two daughters together before they were married in 2012. She has two daughters from a previous marriage which ended badly. It must be hard for those girls when their step-dad looks like that. I’d be coming home from college for every single holiday, including Arbor Day! And, of course her first marriage ended badly! She wasn’t married to those nipples.
“People like to talk about it. I’m like, ‘Yeah, but it works better than my last marriage.’ It’s lasted longer than a lot of my friends’ marriages.”
The couple are currently working on a screenplay together which Sam will direct and Aaron will star in. I hope it’s called Fifty Shades Of Aaron Taylor-Johnson Naked And Doing Filthy Things.
