Amber Tamblyn, 24, and David Cross, 44, make out at a party

Young Joan of Arcadia star Amber Tamblyn, 24, was swapping spit with a guy old enough to be her dad at the after party for the new documentary Where is in the World is Osama Bin Laden. Amber was apparently on a date with David Cross from Arrested Development, and although the titillating article about their public makeout session says that he’s 43, he actually turned 44 earlier this month:

ODD couple alert! “Arrested Development” star David Cross, 43, arrived at the after-party for Morgan Spurlock’s new documentary, “Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden?,” at Pink Elephant Tuesday night with “Joan of Arcadia” star Amber Tamblyn, 24. The two “were definitely together, making out and barely came up for air the whole night,” our spy said. At least they made it in the door. Security was tight after Spurlock received threats and hate mail over his new movie.

When I first saw this guy’s picture as his character from Arrested Development, Tobias Fünke I didn’t realize who he was – it’s Ian from Alvin and The Chipmunks! I’ve seen that movie 10 or more times, and it just gets better with each viewing my kids begs out of me. That’s somewhat creepy that he would get with a 24 year-old, but I have to say I find him oddly attractive. I’d be all over that too.

David Cross is shown on 10/22/07 at the 24 Hour Plays, thanks to WENN. Amber Tamblyn is shown on 1/15/08 at the premiere of The Business of Being Born, thanks to PRPhotos.

    Someone has daddy issues.

  2. Syko says:

    Is she related to Russ Tamblyn, who was an actor back in the last century?

  3. AC says:

    old enough to be her father if he was a really really young father. but yeah … i can’t say i see the attraction.

  4. anon69 says:

    yes Syko, that is his daughter

  5. lola lola says:

    ok, I think I lost the plot here. Didn’t she just have a baby with someone? (else)….What happened to that guy?

  6. Sasha says:

    And she was drunk, right? ….very drunk, right ?

  7. celebitchy says:

    lola I made that same mistake. The actress you are thinking of is Mary Lynn Rajskub from “24,” she looks similar to Amber:,0,2750700.story

    I’m 23 and I’d have no problem kissing a 43 year old. Some men in their 40′s are very attractive. He’s only old enough to be her father if he’d had a child when he was 19… there are a lot larger age gaps than that in the celebrity world. I don’t see what the big deal is…? Slow news today perhaps?!

  9. bob says:

    They’re both adults, and they should have the right to be with whoever they want without worrying about race, gender, age, or whatever other “differences” that judgemental people feel should keep them apart.

  10. Syko says:

    Lisa, you’re losing your creativity, as well as your command of the English language. I keep seeing the same garbled post.

    I don’t see the problem in a 20 year age difference. If you enjoy each other, age shouldn’t be a factor. I also don’t see how this guy is attractive, but maybe he’s all personality.

  11. Bodhi says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with it either. There are definately a few actors who are older than me that I’d be all over…

  12. Megan says:

    Actually, I don’t know if it’s just that picture, but she looks older than 24… she looks 30. So they don’t look like such an odd couple. Try TomKat for odd couples!

  13. FF says:

    There are lots of reasons people find each other attractive. I’d hesitate to say it’s because of her ‘daddy issues’ or his ‘immaturity’ because I don’t know enough about their history.

    Now if this the next in a long line of older guys for her and younger women for him, then I’d start to see a trend in their behaviour and say as much.

    Who knows, they could just be two lonely people who find each other attractive and have very similar interests.

  14. Gracie says:

    I’m 41 and I think he looks kinda old for 44. If he went with a clean shaven look, he’d look a lot younger.

  15. Dee says:

    This reminds me of a Dr. Phil show I saw yesterday,
    A 45-year old teacher was engaged to his 17-year old student. The man was bald-headed, had very creepy, steely-blue eyes and the student was a lovely short-haired blonde.

    It said her mother and father had seperated, but got back together. I always believe that children who grow up without a father are usually more attracted to older males. I grew up without a paternal figure, but people don’t really care if you like someone older (10-20 years older). But if you court someone that much older, it’s another thing.

    On the other hand, men your own age can seem immature and uninteresting, so it’s obvious why some women go for more mature males.

    And as for the age, there was a woman, I forgot her name, she’s on the D-list I suppose, who had a lover who was 32-years younger than her.

    Russ Tamblyn is her father. She seems close to her father, so I don’t know if the daddy issues figure in with her hook-up with David Cross. Interesting couple.

  17. Anonymous says:

    I thought he was gay.

  18. Megan says:

    Dee I had a father who was always there for me, my parents are still married, and I like older men. The ‘looking for a replacement daddy’ theory is bull.

  19. headache says:

    If they were dating, I wouldn’t have an issue with it but am I the only one who thinks it weird that she would be instantaneously attracted to this dude and just start making out with him somewhere?

  20. iheartlasagne says:

    I’m probably showing my age here, but this guy is hilarious! Of course he was the ambiguous Tobias Funke, which was such a great character, but he was on a show called Mr Show w/ Bob and Dave on HBO. Bob Odenkirk is also hilarious. They have both done a ton of work, cameos on TV shows, etc. He’s not that attractive, but this is a bad photo. His sense of humor probably makes him attractive.

  21. jarkko says:

    I would make out with anyone who had anything to do with Arrested Development.

  22. soyjuice says:

    i’d go out with david cross if i had the chance, and i have balls. she chick is fine because david cross is an honest, sincere and hilarious person, you peanut gallery burn victims and your petty lives should go back and swim in the toilet you grew out of, and while you are there, choke on the doody your grandmother left behind

  23. Alan says:

    On age differences, I feel quite immature for an older guy. I would love to have a chance at going out with Amber. The age difference for me would be approximately the same. People keep telling me don’t look for younger women, they won’t be interested. I think David Cross is one of the funniest comedians out there today. There is a lot she could be attracted to. She seems very mature for her age, maybe that is what she sees in older guys.

    I just saw a interview on Regis and Kelly and straight outta Amber’s mouth she stated she is 16 yrs old today 9-10-09. whats up with reading that she is 24?
