Age is just a number for American comedian Bo Burnham. That is why the famous comedian has no qualms about dating someone with a significant age gap. He has been dating Lorene Scafaria, a fellow showbiz star. Scafaria, a screenwriter and director, is more than a decade older than the multi-talented comedian.
They have a 12-year age difference
Burnham has been dating his girlfriend Scafaria since 2013. Their relationship has been openly known to the public since the beginning, owing to their age difference. The comedian was born in Hamilton, Massachusetts, on August 21, 1990, and the screenwriter was born in Holmdel Township, New Jersey, on May 1, 1978. Scafaria was already directing Hollywood films when Burnham began uploading YouTube videos in 2006.
The couple’s age difference is also easily discernible when they appear in public on occasion. And a few of their fans bring the duo’s age difference and height disparity to the forefront. For example, in September 2019, a Twitterati named Logan shared a photo of Burnham and Scafaria together, emphasizing their 12-year age gap.
Scafaria also made a point of emphasizing the boyfriend’s towering height in comparison to her diminutive stature. She is 5 feet 2 inches tall, while the famous YouTuber-turned-filmmaker is 6 feet 4 inches tall.
Regardless of what anyone says, the talented couple appears to be happy together based on the limited information we have about their personal relationship. Burnham clearly doesn’t care what the rest of the world thinks about his and his girlfriend’s age difference.
Burnham’s girlfriend is a director, so there are no gaps in her career choices
While there are obvious differences in their ages and heights, the couple’s differences appear to end there. They both have a love of storytelling and filmmaking in common. Burnham wowed critics and mainstream moviegoers alike in 2018 by directing and writing the film Eight Grade. He also shone as an actor in Promising Young Woman, Parks and Recreation, and Parks and Recreation.
Scafaria, his partner in crime, on the other hand, is also a filmmaker. In fact, she is a well-known American film director best known for her work on the hit film Hustlers, starring Jennifer Lopez. Scafaria’s other notable works include Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, The Meddler, and the television shows Ben and Kate and New Girl.
Her hard work and dedication have earned her numerous award nominations, including the EDA Awards and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Director, among others. Burnham and his girlfriend are both at the pinnacle of their respective careers.
Regardless of their dating history, age, or height difference, they are churning out successful Hollywood projects while enjoying each other’s company.
Relationships in the Past
Before dating each other, Burnham and his long-term partner Scafaria were in relationships with other people. Burnham, on the other hand, had a secret girlfriend around 2009. On March 14, 2009, he mentioned her on Twitter, writing, “my girlfriend’s home! I feel straight again!”
Scafaria, likewise, dated actor Ashton Kutcher in 2012. In 2010, she was also romantically linked to Adam Brody, the star of StartUp.
