Filmmaker and artist Sam Taylor-Johnson has said that she and her husband Aaron “couldn’t really fathom the fascination” with the age gap between them.

Speaking to the BBC’s “This Cultural Life” podcast, Taylor-Johnson, 57, said that outside interest in her relationship had died down since the pair first got together after meeting on the set of “Nowhere Boy,” which she directed.

The movie, in which Aaron Taylor-Johnson portrays John Lennon during his early years, was released in the United Kingdom in 2009. He was 19 and Sam Taylor-Johnson was 42 at the time.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who is also known for appearing in “Kick Ass,” “Nocturnal Animals” and “Bullet Train,” is reportedly in the running to become the new James Bond, and his wife was asked how she felt about the prospect of becoming the new Mrs Bond.
