WATCH:  Celebrities who make the age gap relationship work

When it comes to Hollywood relationships, you're not alone if you've ever wondered, "Wait, is that her boyfriend or her dad?" A share of A-list women have also found themselves dating men who are more than 15 years their junior, too.

Lost in the controversy of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's split was their age gap.

WATCH:  Depp and Heard collaborated in the 2012 film "The Rum Diary" and married in 2015.

Heard was 30 and Depp was turning 53 when it was announced they were parting ways. But other A-list couples, who think age is just a number, were still going strong as of May 2016.

Jennifer Lopez, 47, has dated Casper Smart, who won't turn 30 until April.

Lopez and Smart have navigated a 16-year age gap following her 2014 divorce from Marc Anthony.

As it turns out, Anthony, too, has opted for a younger partner since that split.

Just 10 months Lopez's senior, Anthony is 20 years older than current wife Shannon de Lima.

De Lima was 26 and Anthony was 46 when they married in 2014.

"Full House" stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have opted for older men in recent years.

An Olsen twin trend

When Mary-Kate Olsen and French banker Olivier Sarkozy married in November 2015, she was 29 and he was 46.

The trend seems to run in the family, as Olsen's twin sister Ashley has been linked romantically to "Foxcatcher" director Bennett Miller, who turns 50 at the end of 2016.

Jason Statham was 48 and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was 28 when their engagement was announced.

Hulk Hogan turned 63 on August 11. His wife, Jennifer McDaniel, is in her early 40s.

Hogan and McDaniel wed in 2010, when he was in his mid-50s and she was in her mid-30s.

Linda Hogan's Message to Hulk Hogan

WATCH:  Hogan's ex, Linda Claridge, also opted for a younger paramour after she divorced Hogan in 2007.

In 2008, Claridge was 48 when she started dating Charley Hill, who was 19 at the time. "When I met him, he said he was 23," Claridge said 2012. "I said, 'Well, that's not so bad.'"

Claridge added, "[The] sex is awesome [and] he really fulfills me emotionally."

That bliss, however, faded. Claridge and Hill broke off their engagement later in 2012.

Presidential nominee Donald Trump, 70, and his third wife, Melania, 46, married in 2005.

Turning 22 on Aug. 29, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison, 56, shocked Hollywood when they wed.

Stodden was 16 when she and Hutchison tied the knot in 2011.
