Cluster bar chart showing age gap for male actors compared to their romantic interests

The clustered bar chart below shows the age gap for leading male actors compared to their romantic interest. The data is split to show the age gap when the actor was age 34 and below and when the actor was age 35 and above. For most actors, the average age gap significantly increases when they were 35 years and older. Harrison Ford is the only exception has his age gap dropped slightly as he got older.
