Ivan Klasko, an 84-year-old Russian movie star, has recently married a former student of his, who just so happens to be about 60 years younger than him. In his native country of Russia, Klasko has become a household name throughout his lifetime on the big-screen. Recently, the man proposed and married 24-year-old Natalia Shevel. The couple announced their plans to start a family together shortly after marrying.

There has been a lot of speculation into the recent marriage, but the happy couple have spoken to the Russian media saying they were a “match made in heaven.” Ivan already has six children, and he met Shevel while teaching fine arts at St. Petersburg Institute of Liberal Education.

Klasko said: “As a result of her words, I started to feel like a man in a way that I thought had long since vanished. But it was like being rebooted, and something which was missing returned.”

The young woman began writing him poetry early on, and this left an impression on the aging man. Things moved fast, and the two now live together in Moscow. The couple are unable to spend a day apart, it appears.
