Falling in love after 50! From Bennifer 2.0 to George Clooney, a look at stars who found romance later in life… after Valerie Bertinelli, 63, met her mate

The former wife of the late rocker Eddie Van Halen also said it was a shock to her to find love once again at 63, especially after a bitter divorce with Tom Vitale.

Sometimes late-in-life love is the best.

Jennifer Lopez said she was thrilled when she wed Ben Affleck in 2022. She was 52 and he was 49.

And the This Is Me… Now singer added that the second time around was even sweeter with Ben; they were engaged 20 years ago but broke it off.

George Clooney, 62, was 51 when he met lawyer Amal Clooney; they wed soon after in Italy and had two kids.

And in the past year Brad Pitt, 60, has fallen for jewelry executive Ines De Ramon after a sad split with wife Angelina Jolie, the mother of his six kids.

Here is a look at which luminaries have found happiness post 50.


They fell in love in 2001 on the set of their movie Gigli which came out two years later. It looked like they were going to walk down the aisle in Malibu but then the movie stars called the romance off.

Twenty years later they started talking again – she was 50 and he was 48.

Then in April 2022 Lopez announced Affleck had proposed with a green diamond. ‘True love exists and forever is real,’ she wrote.

The pair wed first in Las Vegas then had a massive ceremony in Georgia in the summer of 2023.

This year their romance was the highlight of her movie and album both titled This Is Me… Now.

They also discussed their fairytale romance (and all the bumps that came with it) in the documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told.

Together the love birds often light up red carpets while hand in hand, are seen kissing when running errands, and gush about each other in interviews.

They reside in a huge $60m mansion in the quiet neighborhood of Bel Air in Los Angeles along with her twins Max and Emme and his three kids with Jennifer Garner: Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.

In February she broke down in tears at her film premiere as she paid an emotional tribute to Ben Affleck for ‘inspiring’ her life and career, saying to him: ‘Thank you for believing in me.’
