Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 33, addresses 23-year age gap with wife Sam: ‘Nothing to hide’

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has opened up about his much-talked about relationship with wife and director, Sam Taylor-Johnson.

The “Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging” actor, who was 22 when he tied the knot with then-45-year-old Sam 2012, gave a rare insight into his marriage in an interview with Esquire.

“I’ve probably talked to you more about my kids and Sam than I have with anybody,” the “James Bond” hopeful, 33, said in the interview, shutting down further questions about his marriage. “I’ve got really nothing to hide, and I’m secure in what we have.”

“But I’m not going to unlock things that are actually precious to me,” he added, referring to his and Sam’s 23-year age gap.

Aaron met the British director, 56, on the set of the 2009 drama “Nowhere Boy” — Sam’s directorial debut.

The “Bullet Train” actor, who landed the leading role as teenage John Lennon in the drama, began dating Sam when he was 18 and she 42 — prompting major backlash and media coverage.

“I met Sam as actor and director. I think we’re really great at collaborating,” he shared. “But that’s not why I fell in love with her.”

The couple went on to welcome two kids together: Wylda, 13 and Romy, 11.

Aaron is also stepfather to Sam’s daughters Angelica, 25, and Jessie, 15, whom she shares with ex-husband Jay Jopling.

Reflecting on life with Sam and their children, Aaron said he enjoys the day-to-day aspects of fatherhood.

“I enjoy the normality of things, the everyday stuff,” he told the outlet. “Getting my kids ready in the mornings, taking them to school and activities … That feeds my soul.”

Opening up about his own childhood, Aaron said he envisioned being a family man at a young age.

“[I knew] I was going to have a big family. I knew I was going to be a young father. I knew I was going to have many kids,” he shared.

The duo’s marriage has been met with “negativity” over the years, the “Kick-Ass” star told The Telegraph in August 2019.

When Sam celebrated her 50th birthday in 2017, Aaron got the actress’ name tattooed on his chest alongside a hummingbird.

The British star, for her part, inked her husband’s name on her collarbone in June 2021.
