'Kick-Ass' star Aaron Johnson engaged to woman twice his age



It seems the biggest controversy swirling around new superhero flick Kick-Ass isn't the ultra violence or foul-mouthed kids, but rather the fact that 19-year-old star Aaron Johnson is engaged to a woman seven months pregnant -- and 24 years his senior. Yeah, he knows what he's in for, sure.

People says Johnson met 43-year-old British artist Sam Taylor-Wood in 2009 on the set of her first directing job, Nowhere Boy. Johnson was playing a young John Lennon, which apparently was very attractive to Taylor-Wood, who is a mother of two and recently divorce her husband of 11 years, Jay Jopling. They got engaged after mere months and are currently living together.

"I've got a wonderful woman," Johnson says. "She's lovely and she's a fantastic mother."

And yes, the baby-to-be is Johnson's, although he's not worried one bit.

"It's not scary," he insists to the mag. "I'm already "I'm already a stepdad to (kids Angelica, 13, and Jessie, 3) anyway. So the nerves have sort of gone." 

You want nerves? Wait until Angelica goes to her senior prom and you have to chaperone, and all the girls want to know who the cute college guy is.
