* Creator/JeffreyDeanMorgan also had a variant playing Thomas Wayne in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Bruce/Batman says he's older than his father ever was, when his actor, Creator/BenAffleck, is six years younger than Morgan.

* Justified in ''Film/TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton''. Cate Blanchett (39) and Brad Pitt (44-45) play the parents of Julia Ormond (43), but Blanchett wears old-age makeup to make her appear like a dying woman in her 80s, while Pitt's character ages in reverse.

* In the film ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0427415/ Just Another Romantic Wrestling Comedy]]'', wrestler April Hunter, then 31-32 years old, played the mother for the entirety of the movie, even when her daughter's character is played as an adult by Nicole Brier, who may have been only a few years younger. The father was played by MMA star Don Frye, who was about 40 at the time the movie was made.

* ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' has multiple examples, which are justified as the characters also appear in flashbacks set at least 20 years prior, and it's easier to add age with makeup than it is to subtract it: Creator/CarlaGugino as Sally/Silk Spectre I and Creato/JeffreyDeanMorgan as the Comedian (she was 37, he was 42, both play characters that ranges from the 20s in flashbacks to the late 60s in 1985), Malin Akerman as Laurie/Silk Spectre II (29 during filming, ranges from 17 to 37 - and the two actors mentioned prior are her on-screen parents]]), and Creator/MatthewGoode as Ozymandias (29 at the time of filming, playing a 46-year-old - in flashbacks, 27). Also, canonically Jon Osterman was 30 when he "died" (and became Dr. Manhattan, who essentially doesn't age), but his actor, Creator/BillyCrudup, was 39.

* In ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'', Jessie Royce Landis played Cary Grant's mother. Landis was actually ten months ''younger'' than Grant. (Or eight years older according to different sources, which still fits this trope.)
* ''Film/TheGraduate'' combined this trope with DawsonCasting: 30-year-old Dustin Hoffman played the titular recent college graduate, with 36-year-old Anne Bancroft as his [[MrsRobinson middle-aged lover]]. Her daughter is played by 27-year-old Katharine Ross.

* Another Lansbury example: when she played Elvis's mother in ''Blue Hawaii'', she was only 9 years older than him.
* In Creator/BrianDePalma's ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'', Miriam Colon, who played Tony Montana's mother, was only four years older than Al Pacino.
* Male example: ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' introduces Indy's father - played by SeanConnery, who is only 12 years older than Creator/HarrisonFord. Showing Connery's undyed and naturally thinning hair without wig helped portray Connery as older.
* Another male example is Matt Frewer, who was 30 when ''FarFromHome'' was filmed but plays the father of a girl who's just turned 15 (although Drew Barrymore was only 13 when she played the part). Matt Frewer looking older than he really was, having started balding in his early 20s.

* Played straight and averted with Spock's parents in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'': Mark Lenard was only about six years older than Leonard Nimoy while a healthy twenty-one years separated Spock and his mother. (Since Vulcans have a much longer lifespan than humans, it's reasonable for Spock's Vulcan father to appear younger than his human mother.)
* In ''Film/PeggySueGotMarried'', NicolasCage played Helen Hunt's father in the 1980s part of the movie. She's six months his senior, although his LoungeLizard costume helps age him. In the 1960 section he is supposed to be 17, which is a [[DawsonCasting different trope]].

* In the film ''Film/LawsOfAttraction'', Frances Fisher plays the mother of Julianne Moore's HelloAttorney character. Possibly lampshading this trope in that she doesn't want her daughter to call her "mom" in public because she'd rather pass herself off as her older sister. Which makes perfect sense, as in RealLife, Fisher ''is'' more like an older sister to Moore, being only 8 years older than she is.

* ''Film/TheManInTheIronMask'': Anne Parillaud plays the mother of Leonardo diCaprio's King Louis XIV. At the time, diCaprio was 24 years old and Parillaud was 38. The [[DVDCommentary creators]] were very worried about Parillaud's youth, as the age difference would have made her a 14-year old mother. They only refrained from removing her from the cast when a member of the team mentioned that marriage, and consummation of marriage, could happen in those days at the age of 14.[[labelnote:*]]The real Louis XIII and Anne did marry at the age of 14, although they did not consummate the marriage until they were 18.

* Creator/JenniferLawrence so far in all her roles in David O Russel movies, seemingly getting more pronounced with each one. ''Film/SilverLiningsPlaybook'' is an arguable example, it came out when she was 22 but her character Tiffany has been married for several years and then widowed, placing her in her late twenties/ early thirties. ''Film/AmericanHustle'' came a year later and Lawrence's character in that movie is in her mid-to-late thirties (although the real woman portrayed was in her late ''forties''). ''{{Film/Joy}}'' is a borderline case, as the movie focuses on Joy Mangano's attempts to get her products sold - and she starts out the same age as Lawrence and only a couple of years pass (besides the DistantFinale).

** [[Film/{{Carrie1976}} In the first film]], Betty Buckley was only two years older than Sissy Spacek, despite playing her teacher. There is a small amount of merit to this in the book, where Miss Desjardin is said to be a young teacher on her first year. There's also a line from Carrie's narration where she remarks that the teacher looked lovely enough at the prom to pass for a student.
** The same film also has an eighteen year difference between Spacek and Piper Laurie, who plays her mother. Could be a teenage pregnancy in the film, but the book's version of Margaret is meant to be much older. Averted with the age gap between Sue and her mother, as they were played by real life mother and daughter Amy Irving and Priscilla Pointer.

Slattery is only 12 years older than Cooper.

* On ''Series/ThisIsUs'', 32-year-old Music/MandyMoore and 39-year-old Creator/MiloVentimiglia play the parents to 40-year-old Sterling K. Brown, 39-year-old Justin Hartley, and 36-year-old Chrissy Metz. Justified in that the parents' story is set in the 1970s and 1980s so the actors who play their children don't actually interact with them. However, Mandy Moore has to wear old-age makeup for her character's scenes in the present day because the show's creators couldn't find an older actress who resembled enough like her.

* ''Film/{{Alexander}}'': The title character's actor (Colin Farrell) was born in 1976. AngelinaJolie, who played his mother Olympias, was born in 1975, making her a year older than him. Freud could have a field day. I swear. Olympias' character development is seen in flashbacks from when Alexander was much younger, which means this casting makes some sort of sense.
