On-Screen Parent/Child Duos That Closed the Age Gap (PHOTOS)

By: Celebuzz / January 14, 2011

We’re sure many people were thrilled to hear that Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg were reportedly teaming up to star in the upcoming comedy I Hate You, Dad, but when they heard Adam would be playing Andy’s father, something didn’t feel right.

At only 12 years apart (Sandler’s 44; Samberg’s 32), it seems like pulling off the father/son could be impossible for the potential on-screen duo, but fear not, as it most certainly can be done.

Celebuzz has compiled a list of on-screen parent/child duos that (mostly) made the age difference work.

From Rachel McAdams and Amy Poehler in Mean Girls to Olivia Wilde and Justin Timberlake in the upcoming action flick, Now, check out who we picked (and what their real age difference was) in the gallery!
