It is said that curiosity is “female”, but I think in some cases it is only natural and spontaneous.
Who would not know how one of us looked like when young, for example?
And even more so if he/she is a VIP well-known worldwide.
Interestingly, in many cases, the “appearance” is fairly predictable, so if you cover the picture on the right, the character in question becomes easily identifiable, while for others there is no analogy.
To let you know the age of each subject, next to the name, you find the birth date.
Enjoy now this series of photos……………..

Couples With Big Age Gaps

Madonna & Brahim Zaibat
Previously I talked about the case “Jordan Power & James Hooker” which raised the controversial issue for age gap relationships, a newspaper story which, as you know, provoked outrage and irritation of many self-righteous. Well, in that instance it was an old man who had chosen a young  girl as the companion of his life, and since in these cases the criticism is promoted more by mothers and women, what do they say when the opposite occurs? It is to say, what do women, moms or  churchy persons say when it just is an older women to couple with a younger person?
Around the world there will be thousands of couples formed by both older men with young girls and mature women with younger guys, but said so, the deed seems to have no credit or importance, so I must refer to  famous and well-known people to prove it. Searching around, I have found some, perhaps well-known, but certainly there will be many other similar examples. Here’s the couples:

•    Madonna & Brahim Zaibat (30 years difference, when he was 16 she 46)
•    Kim Cattrall & Alan Wyse (29 years difference, when he was 16 she 45)
•    Barbara Hershey &  Naveen Andrews (21 years difference, when he was 16 she 37)
•    Liz Taylor & Larry Fortensky (18 years difference, when he was 16 she 34)
•    Francesca Annis & Ralph Fiennes (18 years difference)
•    Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher (16 years difference)
•    Geena Davis & Dr Reeza Jarrahy (16 years difference)
•    Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins (13 years difference)
•    Vanessa Feltz & Ben Ofoedu (11 years in difference)
•    Mandy Moore & Adam Goldstein (11 years in difference)

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones

When Louise Veronica Ciccone coupled with her first (or second) young partner or when Woody Allen, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger or Marilyn Mason, for instance, did it with a very… very young partner compared to their age, the bigots did not express the same public indignation. Why that?
Because a “VIP” can do everything without being criticized harshly and a “common people” cannot, perhaps?
I’m flabbergasted and disappointed when someone points out as pedophile any person like James Hooker and do not do the same when Hugh Hefner, for instance, at 80 years old chooses a twenty-year-old! Obviously, they both are not, but you shouldn’t have double standards. For me, as Aaliyah song says, “Age ain’t nothing but a number”, simply.

Americans loving Italy

Leonardo Di Caprio’s mozzarella

Di caprio's mozzarella

I think it’s not a secret that famous American people love Italy and apart those with Italian descends, many of them even decided to buy a home in the Belpaese. I know that George Clooney goes and comes from Italy, while there is some reference to Brad Pitt’s having bought his own villa in a town not far from Clooney’s place. Woody Allen filmed movies in Venice, had films debut at the Venice Film Festival, married Soon-Yi in Venice, and he also helped raise money to rebuild the opera house “La Fenice”, so it seems he likes the city quite a bit. Debi Mazar has a home in Tuscany and split her time between there and Los Angeles.

But, I was astonished when read a short news about Leonardo Di Caprio who after the purchase of a luxury apartment in Verona, came in my city because is daft about buffalo mozzarella. According to his entourage, the beauty of Titanic would be interested to start an in-house production of mozzarella, which is extremely fond. The Hollywood star is serious, and began to investigate the Campania region, in particular the area of ​​Caserta and Salerno, to find a dairy farm to manage.

After the wine and oil, and with the food market by now inflated, no one expected that a VIP would go countertrend.

The voice of Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall chose to take his second career as a winemaker managing some vineyard down the Etna’s slopes.

Olive oil and honey are, instead, the products on which Sting’s family aimed to bring in their residence in Tuscany.

Gerard Depardieu and Carole Bouquet for a few years, have become exceptional farmers in Pantelleria, among zibibbo and raisin.

Probably, in the future you also will be surprised to find in America, on a supermarket shelf, a mozzarella packaging with the name “Di Caprio” printed on, also if it will be identical to the mozzarella we Neapolitans usually eat every day.
