Sam Taylor-Johnson, 57, recently took to her Instagram story and shared a rare loved-up snap with her husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 34, after hitting out at the "odd fascination" people have with their age-gap romance.

The director and Johnson met on the set of Nowhere Boy in 2009, and were married three years later despite their 23-year age gap and her previous marriage.

The 57-year-old recently shared an insight into her relationship with the Marvel actor and posted a loved-up image of the two of them as they headed to Glastonbury Festival over the weekend.

She sported a khaki Marfa Stance padded jacket for the picture, which had fluffy collar drawstring sleeves and styled her blonde hair in pigtails.

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old showed off his full beard as he beamed for the snap and sported a denim jacket with a white T-shirt underneath.

Their age gap is a large topic of conversation for many, with the Back to Black director recently slamming people's opinions and claiming she found it "odd" that they were so fascinated by their relationship.

Discussing her relationship on BBC Radio 4's This Cultural Life, she said: "I guess that interest was more when we got together, which was now 14 years – at the beginning, was quite intense.

"And that sort of fascination, because he's younger than me, which you know, we couldn't really fathom the fascination. But I guess it's sort of gone away a little bit.

"Mostly when I'm doing press and things like this it sort of resurges a little bit. But yeah, I guess people want to understand things when they can't. They want to pick up art when they can't fathom what a certain love story that doesn't fit in a box is."

When asked whether the couple's age gap ever showed in terms of different interests, she told The Guardian's Saturday magazine: "No, it never does. I mean, it's coming up now because you're asking.

"And it comes up on the outside perspective of people who don't know us because I guess people will always. We're a bit of an anomaly, but it's that thing: after 14 years you just think, surely by now it doesn't really matter?"

The filmmaker is a mother to Angelica, 26, and Jessie, 17, who she shares with ex-husband Jay Jopling and shares Wylda, 13, and Romy, 12, with The Fall Guy star.

She previously opened up about her two cancer diagnoses putting a new perspective on her relationship with Taylor-Johnson and how it shaped her responses to critics.

The 57-year-old was treated for colon cancer back in 1997 at the age of 30, and then was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000, and told The Sunday Independent: "Going through all the c**p I've been through, I don't really listen to other people's opinions.

"I just follow my heart and my instincts. People like to talk about it. I'm like, 'But it works better than my last marriage.' It lasted longer than a lot of my friends' marriages.

"The thing is, we had quite a psychic link when we were working together. I knew from a flicker of an eyelash what kind of performance I was going to get. I felt that link almost from day one of meeting him."
