Dane Cook stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last week to promote his upcoming comedy tour. During the interview he joked about the 26 year age gap to his girlfriend Kelsi Taylor.
“My girlfriend and I, we get a lot of crap from people because we have an age difference. I’m 46, and she’s 20,” he says. The audience then has an uncomfortable reaction and some snicker at the comment, which then prompted Cook to say, “I’m sure that wasn’t judgement at all.”
“Here’s the thing. I love her, she is the kindest, sweetest, just my favorite — my best friend,” he continues. “And sometimes I actually find myself saying, ‘Where has she been all my life?’ and then I realize she wasn’t alive for the first 26 years of it,” he joked. “People are like, ‘You’re robbing the cradle.’ I was like, ‘She hasn’t slept in the cradle for like nine years, relax.’”
