10 Teenage Actresses (Creepily) Too Young For Their Onscreen Love Interests


Casting roles can get very creepy sometimes. There’s this long standing myth that men are more attractive when they are older and women are only attractive when they are younger. The result is that beauty obsessed Hollywood often ends up casting very young women as female ingenues and much older men as their love interests. Not only does that send a bizarre message to viewer it also forces teenage actress to behave in sexualized ways, often having to simulate sex with these older men or actually do nude scenes. Some of these castings are just awkward, some of them are just damn shocking and some of these couples dated in real life. Yikes. If you can think of any other actresses who were too young for their roles let us know in the comments!
