But the news is raising even more eyebrows as Kick-Ass fans learn that the violent movie's leading young man is engaged to a woman more than twice his age. Aaron Johnson met Sam Taylor-Wood, 43, while she was directing him in the John Lennon bio-pic Nowhere Boy last year. It sounds like the sparks came fast and furious after they met...Read Full Story
