Al Pacino and Girlfriend Split Over Age Gap: 'It's Hard to Be With a Man so Old'

February 18, 2020

Al Pacino and his girlfriend have called it quits.

Israeli actress Meital Dohan claims she split with the actor because of their 39-year age gap, the Daily Mail reports. Pacino is 79 and Dohan is 40.

Speculation began when Pacino showed up to the Oscars solo.

According to the publication, Dohan reportedly told Israel's La'Isha magazine, "It's hard to be with a man so old, even Al Pacino."

She added, "The age gap is difficult, yes. I tried to deny it, but now he is already an elderly man, to be honest. So even with all my love, it didn't last."

The “Weeds” actress also claimed Pacino’s frugalness led to the split, as “The Godfather” actor “didn’t like to spend money.” “He only bought me flowers,” she explained.

The pair dated for two years.

Meital insists they remain “good friends” and that their relationship was “an honor.”

The duo was last seen together walking arm-in-arm at “The Irishman” premiere in LA in October 2019.

The longtime actor was previously involved in a decade-long romance with Argentine actress Lucila Solá.

Pacino is also a father-of-three – he shares 18-year-old twins Olivia and Anton with ex Beverly D’Angelo and a 30-year-old daughter, Julie Marie, with former acting coach Jan Tarrant.

Pacino hasn’t allowed his age to stop him from nabbing some of the best roles in Hollywood.

Twenty-seven years after his last Oscar nomination and first win, Pacino snagged the “Best Supporting Actor” nomination for his performance as Jimmy Hoffa in the Netflix drama.
