Actor Aaron Johnson has defended the 23-year age difference with fiancee Sam Taylor Wood, insisting they don't acknowledge the gap because they feel they're the same age. The pair fell in love after Taylor Wood cast the 19-year-old in her John Lennon biopic "Nowhere Boy", before announcing their engagement in October.
But Johnson is adamant he can't tell he's younger than the 42-year-old artist because they're so compatible. He explains, "I'm an old soul and she's a young soul. We don't see an age gap, we just see each other."
Aside from his personal life, Aaron Johnson is well known for his role of Young Eisenheim in 2006 film "The Illusionist". The British actor has also been slated to star as the major character in upcoming action movie "Kick-Ass", which will hit U.S. theaters on April 16, 2010.
