According to People magazine, 52-year-old Vincent Cassel has officially made the transition many actors hope to one day make: from being a guy who was dating a woman half his age, to being a guy that is now married to a woman half his age. “Congratulations!” cheered Richard Gere.
Vincent (whose role as an older dude trying to get with a much-younger ballerina in Black Swan now feels just a touch method) married 21-year-old French model Tina Kunakey on Friday. Tina is now his second wife. They got married at city hall just outside of Paris. Before they did that, they posed without their clothes for Vanity Fair Italia.
Alla vigilia di un nuovo matrimonio, in esclusiva a Vanity Fair, @vincentcassel racconta l’amore con @tinakunakey, sulla copertina del giornale in edicola da domani. Un amore nato all'improvviso, senza porsi troppe domande sulla differenza di età – lui 51 anni, lei 21 – perché, dice l’attore francese «non puoi scegliere di chi innamorarti»: «Non sapevo quanti anni avesse quando l’ho incontrata. Il giorno dopo, quando me l’ha detto, ero un po’ sorpreso ma ho pensato: beh, è andata così» #meandmyvanity Direttore @danielahamaui; intervista @ebrocky©️ @morganelay & @jonnyc1st
Vincent was previously married to Monica Bellucci from 1999 to 2013. They share two daughters, who are just seven and thirteen years younger than their new step-mom, something that I’m sure isn’t weird at all. And it sounds likely that they’ll have a new sister or brother soon. Vincent told Vanity Fair Italia that he was ready to get married to Tina, regardless of her age, and that he’s also ready to start pumping sperm near her ovaries.
“I thought: I was married, I have two little girls, I did what I had to do; so I will be single. It was fun but after a while I realized that my life was empty. I did not expect to meet someone, but it happened. And this woman is much younger than I would have imagined. Children are the most wonderful thing that exists. It is through children, my daughters and beyond that I have learned more things.”
During a recent New York Times interview, he claimed he was very much in love with his “21-year-old girl” and that he’s sure they are going to “make babies.” Vincent sounds really preoccupied with having more kids. What’s the rush? He’s still fully immersed in the dad experience. For example, when he asks for the millionth time what a “snapstagram video” is, he’s now got three sets of totally mortified eyes rolling back at him.
