26 Jun – "Kick Ass" star Aaron Johnson has finally married his long-time fiancé, "Nowhere Boy" director Sam Taylor-Wood, and as a result, has adopted a new legal name, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, which he will be credited as in his upcoming romance drama film, "Anna Karenina".
According to People, 22-year-old Johnson and 45-year-old Taylor-Wood were married on 21 June in Somerset, England, after a two-year engagement since 2009. "I'm an old soul and she's a young soul. We don't see an age gap, we just see each other," remarked Johnson about his 23-year age gap with his wife.
The couple had two children together prior to their marriage, both girls. Romy is only five months old while Wylda, is soon-to-be two years old. Through their marriage, Johnson has become the stepfather of Taylor's two daughters from her first marriage to British art dealer Jay Jopling.
Johnson and Taylor first met on the set of Taylor's directional debut "Nowhere Boy", in which Johnson plays the protagonist, a young John Lennon in the 2009 film. The couple then announced their engagement during the premiere of "Nowhere Boy" in October later that year.
Johnson will next appear in Oliver Stone's crime thriller "Savages", Joe Wright's film adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 1877 novel of the same name, "Anna Karenina", and reprise his role in the sequel of "Kick-Ass".
