Ewww. I just read that in their new movie, Mary-Kate Olsen, 22, had an "enthusiastic make-out scene" with Ben Kingsley, 64.

Apropos of the smooching, Kingsley said, "She was completely in charge." That must have been some acting job on her part.

The age gap between the younger woman/older man just keeps widening. You used to hear people say, "He's old enough to be her father." But that phenomenon has occurred so often lately that we've become inured to it, and it seems normal. Now it's more like, "He's old enough to be her grandfather." Which clearly applies to the 42 years between co-stars Olsen and Kingsley.

And it would never fly to show a 64-year-old grandma making out with a 22-year-old guy.
