I have heard some people say that the makers of The Nativity Story might have cast an actor in his mid-20s as Joseph, rather than the older man depicted in the vast majority of traditional iconography, because audiences wouldn’t accept a teenager marrying a guy in his 40s. I wonder, though. Did anyone object when Alan Rickman (who was 49 at the time) wooed Kate Winslet (who was 19 at the time) in Sense and Sensibility (1995)?
