It’s not uncommon for Hollywood couples to face scrutiny and backlash from the public, but few have faced criticism quite like Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife Sam Taylor-Johnson. The couple’s 23-year age difference has been the subject of intense media coverage and scrutiny since they got together in 2009. But in a recent interview with Esquire, Aaron defended his love for his wife and put the haters in their place.
“I’ve got really nothing to hide, and I’m secure in what we have,” Aaron told the magazine. “But I’m not going to unlock things that are actually precious to me.”
The couple first met on the set of the film Nowhere Boy, where Sam was the director and Aaron was the lead actor. Despite their significant age difference, the two fell in love and have been happily married since 2012. They have two children together and Sam has two daughters from a previous relationship.
While some may question the power dynamic of their relationship, Aaron insists that he and Sam are equals in every way. “I met Sam as an actor and director. I think we’re really great at collaborating,” he shared. “But that’s not why I fell in love with her.”
Aaron’s love for his wife and family is palpable, and he has no intention of letting anyone else’s opinion get in the way of his happiness. “I’m trying to be as honest as possible,” he said. “I’m secure in what we have.”
Despite the criticism they’ve faced, Aaron and Sam’s love story is a testament to the fact that true love knows no bounds. As Aaron puts it, “I’ve got really nothing to hide, and I’m secure in what we have.”
In an industry where relationships are often fleeting and superficial, Aaron and Sam’s enduring love is something to be celebrated. They may face criticism and negativity, but their love is stronger than any hate that may come their way.
