Sean Bean, 58, marries for a fifth time, his bride is 32-year-old Ashley Moore

The Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards held at the BFI Southbank

Back in May, I was somewhat startled to learn that Sean Bean was engaged and planning to marry for the fifth time. The man has been married and divorced four times, but he said he met his soulmate. Her name is Ashley Moore and when I wrote about her in May, I had to do some digging to find out her age. From what I learned – from reading older British articles about them – was that Moore was claiming to be in her early 30s. Which many of you did not believe. Well, happy story: Sean and Ashley married this morning. And the Daily Mail puts her age at 32. For real.

Sean Bean has married fiance Ashley Moore in Dorset. The actor, 58, confirmed the news in an official image taken following the romantic ceremony on Friday morning. Bean looks delighted as stands alongside his bride, who wears a traditional white lace wedding dress with sheer embellished sleeves.

Speaking to the Daily Mail’s Girl About Town in May, the Game Of Thrones star admitted he was hesitant about the prospect of exchanging vows after four failed marriages. But his attitude soon changed after meeting Ashley, a former nanny who is 26-years his junior.

‘I wasn’t planning on getting married again, but then I wasn’t planning on meeting someone as amazing as Ashley,’ he recently told the Daily Mail’s Girl About Town. ‘I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.’

[From The Daily Mail]

As I said previously, when I was 32, I would not have married any old 58 year old, but I probably would have married Sean Bean. I know he’s a wreck and everything, and FOUR DIVORCES doesn’t bode well for any relationship, but still – I would bang it/marry it. I believe Ashley Moore probably felt the same way – like, yeah, he’s a wreck and it will probably end in tears, but it will be a lot of fun until then.

    eh…good luck?

    I agree she does look older than 32, not in a bad way although Im not sure there is a non bad way to say someone looks older.

  2. Shelley says:

    That is NOT 32! 42 perhaps? Bang it but don’t marry it! There’s a reason it did not work out the previous four times.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      I am more inclined to guess her age to be somewhere near the 50s.

      • milla says:

        Ok Sean Bean is on my list with Lenny Kravitz who is also in his 50s… not cos they are rich or famous but cos they are sexy

      • KB says:

        There is literally no way that woman is in her 30s. If it were even slightly believable I wouldn’t say anything, but 32? I’d accept 42 if I were feeling exceptionally nice. And even then I’d side-eye the hell out of that claim. She’s got to be 50 or very close to it.

    • CTgirl says:

      This is a rough representation of 32.

    • Rachel says:

      I am 6 years her senior, and she makes me look like a babe in the woods. It saddens me that any woman would feel the need to lie about her age, so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say maybe she needs to rethink her makeup? Maybe a softer look would make her look her age?

    • Seraphina says:

      Maybe she is 32 in the sack and 52 on the outside

    • V4Real says:

      If she’s 32 I’m 22. Get the flock out of here with that noise.

      • Amanda says:

        If she’s 32 then I am 10. I AM 32 and just…no. I’ve never seen another person my age that look like this.

    • Chicken says:

      I’m 33, and she looks at least a decade older than me.

    • Mia4s says:

      I don’t buy 32 at all….unless she embraces the same lifestyle that he does (hard, HARD drinking, etc.). That would make some sad sense.

      And wow I don’t agree at all with the “fun while it lasted” comment given the police have been called in on his domestic disputes numerous times! How is that fun exactly?

    • Alix says:

      I, too, looked at the pic and thought, well at least he’s married someone close to his age. Ha! Her neck is a dead giveaway. 42, minimum.

    • raincoaster says:

      Because he kept punching them.

  3. manda says:

    I feel bad for thinking this woman is lying about her age. I just don’t believe it.

    • TheBee's says:

      yeah, I’m feel conflicted as well. I’m 35 and I haven’t seen anyone around my age look so 46. At first i thought it was blog shade…. maybe they showed the pic of his older ex wife or something but if that is her and she is 32….. so mote it be.

      • Brittney B says:

        Had the same thought about the header: that it was a picture of him with his age-appropriate first wife, or something.

        Lol’d at “look so 46”. Very specific. Now I feel thrice as bad as I did before, gah.

    • Brittney B says:

      I know; it’s pretty sexist to question it, but I feel the urge to join the chorus of “she’s not my age!” and I don’t know why. My 30th birthday is next month, so maybe I’m feeling insecure?

      It could just be the makeup, though. It’s very severe and the contouring could be giving the appearance of extra wrinkles and shadows and folds.

    • Miss S says:

      I’m 31 and look younger, but common, she can’t have 32! And it’s sad (if this isn’t a typo) that she feels the need to lie because people will speculate and it just gives emphasis to her age:/

  4. Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

    Am sorry but I am struggling with that fact that this article says she’s 32! Maybe she just doesn’t photograph well. Please don’t flame me.

    Either way congrats.

    • third ginger says:

      Oh, DU, I think you are in the majority today. I am just laughing because right now it is so hard to be an American.

  5. KP says:

    Congrats to them but I’m 32 and there’s no way she’s not 42.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      I’m (close to) 42 and there’s no way she is at least 10 years older than me.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      I’m 42 and there is no way she is my age. Bump it up a little more I think.

    • Eden75 says:

      I am 42 and I don’t look that old.

      She looks 32 in pictures without all of the makeup. I think the pancake ages her significantly. It ages everyone sure, but some people look way older than others in it.

  6. Jeesie says:

    Yeah, no way in hell is she 32.

    42 seems generous.

  7. Gaby says:

    She’s not 32, that’s just impossible. I’m 36 and look at least 15 years younger than her.

    • third ginger says:

      Gaby, I have a niece about your age, and she looks much younger than Mrs. Bean.

      • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

        “Mrs. Bean!!” – how did I ever not realize that Sean Bean is Mr. Bean?!!! 😂😂😂

      • third ginger says:

        I know. How hilarious is that. Given Sean’s reputation, I think she might be better off with Rowan Atkinson.

  8. Jane says:

    Good Ol’ Beanie Baby. Sexy as h***, but has a bad track record in the marriage department. I have said this over a number of years…that man could read a phone book and I would get turned on. His voice makes me crazy. I wish them both well…while it lasts.

  9. cailindana says:

    Last time she saw 32 was on a door. . .

  10. third ginger says:

    “Hope springs eternal…” I guess.

  11. Twink says:

    Ha, 32?!? Times two maybe!

  12. Tanguerita says:

    Haha, 32, right. Maybe in dog’s years.

  13. third ginger says:

    Putting the B in CB today. Thanks for the much needed distraction from American politics!!

  14. perplexed says:

    Was there a typo?

  15. themummy says:

    She is a perfectly attractive woman, but I’m sorry, she is not 32. I will eat my hat and all of my clothing if she is a day under 50 (I’d put her closer to 55, actually). Nothing wrong with being 50! 50 is great. She’s just not 32.

  16. LizLemonGotMarried says:

    I thought for sure she was a previous wife! I scrolled first to see the new one! She doesn’t look much younger than Susan Sarandon!

  17. Jamie42 says:

    Remember what he looked like in the Rifleman Sharpe era! Still attractive, but that’s 58 years of hard living.

  18. laur says:

    I’m 31 and kids at work frequently think I’m early 20s… Maybe she’s like that but in reverse? Either way, NOT 32…

    I’m sure it’ll end badly, marriage clearly doesn’t suit him but I agree, there’s def something magnetic about the guy… *hangs head in shame*

    • Kate says:


      Same for me. Also 31 and my students are shocked when they find out I’m not in my 20s.
      I think this woman is attractive but def can’t be a year older than me. Lord.

  19. Carobell says:

    I hope he believes in prenuptial agreements as much as he believes in love…

  20. wash says:

    Sean Bean – long and storied history of abusive relationships, harassment and domestic disturbances.

    New Mrs Sean Bean – very likely lying about her age.

    On the balance of it I think he’s the one we should be aiming brickbats at, although I do appreciate that his shortcoming are not so visually obvious.

    • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

      I’ve also heard that he’s not easy to work with in that he turns up to the set late and drunk and has known to be a d!*k to the crew.

      Its well known in the industry he’s a mess but he still gets work because he is a talented actor with a big enough fan base.

  21. Bonobochick says:

    Yeah, he’s a mess when it comes to marriage. That’s a terrible track record.

    Also, I have a hard time buy she’s 32, and if she is, I need to know what kind of hard life she has been living.

  22. Word says:

    Common guys she british. They age terribly.. She very well could be 32..

    • spidey says:

      Now there is a sweeping generalisation if I ever heard one.

      • third ginger says:

        Helen Mirren!?

      • spidey says:

        Hi there. Actually I’ve got far fewer wrinkles than Ms Mirren, but then I have a lot more weight on to fill them out. 😆

      • third ginger says:

        Hi, back to you. As I said above, I am glad for the distractions from the problems of our great republic.

    • Ange says:

      Usually the Brits do quite well in the ageing department – lack of sun and all that. The only ones I’ve seen that age badly are the smokers and frequent travellers to Spain etc. It’s like they get a lifetime of sun in a few weeks and then inexplicably bleach the hell out of their hair.

  23. Cleo says:

    Doesn’t he have a history of spousal abuse/violent tendencies? I would be reticent about even hitting it with a track record like his…

  24. Anya says:

    No way she’s 32 years old or she’s a very rough 32 years old.

  25. Yeahright says:

    32? Yeah maybe 20 years ago.

  26. Frigga says:

    Inn convinced she is lying about her age…

  27. KBeth says:

    She is a perfectly lovely 50 something woman.

  28. Willa says:

    Is this the new bride to be or the last one? This woman couldn’t possibly be 32!

  29. Wren says:

    No way is she 32. 42 maybe but I am thinking closer to 50. Nothing wrong with that. She is perfectly attractive. But have some confidence about yourself. I wonder if she isn’t saying she’s 32 to stroke his ego about a much younger woman.

  30. T.Fanty says:

    Age aside, she’s also got some crazy eyes going on. I know he’s a dirty mess, but I think he also likes to marry messes, too.

  31. STRIPE says:

    Devils advocate here. Maybe a media outlet mistakenly put her age at 32 and they (she and Bean) just never bothered to fix the mistake because they don’t care and are maybe having a laugh at the whole thing?

  32. poorlittlerichgirl says:

    Yeah, she’s 32 and I’m 12.

  33. Anon says:

    32? More like 52. Look at the colour of her teeth and gums. Now I know you Americans all laugh at Brits’ teeth, but standards have improved a lot in the last 20 years and anyway there is no way a person of 32 should have gums like that even if they didn’t really look after their dental hygiene. Those greyish gums in the second photo say 50+ to me.

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you for putting into words what bothered me about her smile in the second picture that I couldn’t figure out. I just felt it made her look a lot older than 32 and now I understand why.

      Btw, the first time I saw her in a picture when their engagement was announced I thought she was 48-50. I’m 40 myself and that was my spontaneous assessment.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Gums don’t “gray” with age. If you practice proper hygiene (brushing, flossing, and dental visits), gums should stay nice and pink your entire life (barring any health/medical/medication issues). This will also help you to keep all your teeth as well, as they *are* supposed to last a lifetime! ~This info is brought to you, via me (from lifelong lectures), from my uncle, the dentist lol

      And to my eyes, she looks at least 20 yrs. older than she claims.

  34. Cupcake says:

    I remember commenting about her age when. You posted about this couple the first time. There is just NO WAY SHE IS 32! About 50 is as low as I would go. The neck gives her away. But sure I’ll play along. Marrying an experienced divorcée that’s 26 years older sounds like a sh!t idea to me, even for Sean Bean. It might be fun to have him as a boyfriend for a minute 😉

  35. Tess says:

    Lol, in her 40’s at best or around the same age

  36. teatimeiscoming says:

    I think she’s had some bad work done that makes her look older than her age; which is still higher than 32, but whatever. That forehead is too smooth to match the wrinkles in her skin elsewhere.

  37. Stephanie says:

    What is in the air in the UK that is aging these women so bad? I’m 33 and she looks my mom’s age.

  38. Shijel says:

    Eh, honestly after so many failed marriages both Ashley and Sean know what they’re getting into and how it will end.

    And no way that lady is 32. Though….. if you scrubbed that bronzer and make-up off her face, I could totally see her being a fresh-faced 45-year-old.

  39. JA says:

    If she’s 32 then I’m 21. Ha! But yea 21, 25, and 33yr old me would bang Sean Bean circa patriot games era. Such a hottie

  40. KatieBo says:

    That’s a rough 32.

  41. spidey says:

    Will she become the 5th Mrs Bean to have been and gone. 🙂

  42. marmalazed says:

    She is not 32. That is all.

  43. blackcat says:

    No way to the Jose is she 32. I’m 52 and she looks years older than I.
    Without fear and trembling, why can’t some women claim their actual year of birth!!!

    It’s 2017 already people!

  44. Flufff says:

    Didn’t we prove on the previous thread that she’s not 32 (or claiming to be 32), the Mail just confused her with someone else with the same name?

    • M.A.F. says:

      The only other Ashley Moore that Google is giving me is an African-American model who is 23. No way they are confusing the two. There is, however, an Ashley Monroe who is a 30 year old country singer. But Moore and Monroe are two different last names.

  45. Darlene says:

    No. Not 32. Not even close.

  46. Giddy says:

    32??? I hear Foghorn Leghorn saying “It’s a joke, son.”

  47. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Gotta agree – seems older than 32. Her being 32 means I could be her mother. I’m v hard on myself, but even I don’t think I look like I could be her mother.

    Let’s hope 5 times the charm for Ned Stark. 🙂

  48. Twink says:

    I actually saw the black and white photo from the wedding somewhere else and I’m pretty sure it’s a different woman who looks closer to 32. Could it be a case of mistaken identity?

    • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

      I just saw wedding pics of them this morning. It’s the correct woman. This is his 5th marriage, and his other wedding pics are onlinen as hell

  49. LMB says:

    She was 32 once, many many years ago.

  50. M.A.F. says:

    Someone is taking a cue from the Blanche Devereaux playbook on lying about your age.

  51. Erica says:

    Pressing question: is his name pronounced “Shaun Baun” (rhyming) or “Shaun Bean”? I really want it to be Shaun Baun.

    • themummy says:

      Bean. Not rhyming. 😉

    • spidey says:

      Shaun Bean is the correct pronunciation, sorry!

    • jetlagged says:

      You could always go with the alternative – Seen Bean. Once worked with someone who tried to convince me this was the correct pronunciation. I’m afraid I hurt their feelings by giggling far longer than I should have, but now every time I see his name when the credits roll I smile.

  52. smcollins says:

    I’ve never used the expression “my forever dong” but….Sean Bean is my forever dong. He’s gotten a little rough around the edges, but damn, he just does it for me.

  53. Corrine says:

    I’m sorry, there is no way in any world that this lady is 32. Like, I don’t even think she could play 32 on TV.

  54. Brittney B says:

    Already commented about the “26-year” age difference upthread… but just noticed it’s his 5th wife.

    “FOUR DIVORCES doesn’t bode well for any relationship”

    Tell that to my dad! His current wife is his fifth, and this is his longest/most successful marriage by far. (My mom was his third.) It’s actually the longest relationship of his life: more than a decade, and counting. After four previous attempts, he finally found his match.

  55. JustJen says:

    32??? 52 sure, but no way is she 32.

  56. Loula says:

    I’m 40, and look a bit younger than my age, but she looks at least a decade older than me. There’s nothing wrong with being 50 – look at Connie Britton for example (Rayna James from Nashville) stunning lady.

    In fact, probably better to lie about your age upwards rather than downwards, at least people will always think you look good for it!

  57. Skylark says:

    Good luck to her, whatever age she is, throwing her lot in with an abusive, long past his best (both in looks and talent), alcoholic.

  58. tammie says:

    Yeah, she’s 32. And my grandmother (who has better teeth) is 22.

  59. Maria_ says:

    I google them and couldnt find any pic in which she looks like 32 or near ….
    maybe she told him that because he likes youngers? XD

  60. Madpoe says:

    One does not simply walk into a 5th marriage! Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs that do not look like 32 years of age!

  61. hannah89 says:


    sweetie, you left that decade a while ago. more like 50 years old.

  62. Andrea says:

    He has a beer in his hand in the wedding photo. I guess she doesn’t mind?

  63. Plibersek says:

    Maybe she’s a really fit 49 year old and was told that her biological is 32, so that’s what she’s going with.

  64. Kaylee says:

    If she was 12-15 in 1996… I was 14 in 1998 and I’m just turned 33 (born in 1984). She’s absolutely not 32. That would make her born in 1985. Being at the utmost 11 tops at the time of the picture. Trust me, we looked our age then, not like kids today. She would have been born 84-81 in those 96 pics to be 12-15 in those pics.

  65. Skipper says:

    Maybe a hookup with Sean but not marry him.
    Actually probably not a hookup either as he drinks like a fish.
    And at his age it all catches up for men. Sad to say.
    Also it’s the Sheffield Blades 24/7 with him too.
    Too much baggage for me.
    I wish them both the best anyway.
    Christ knows they will need it.
    32?!!! No-42?

  66. S (the other) says:

    Dayum. Civilian marries an actor with no obvious PR courting and it’s open season to discuss how she looks old and decrepit. That’s beyond bitchy.

    • Skylark says:

      It’s seriously horrible but that’s how it increasingly is on here.

      FWIW, I think she’s really attractive, whatever age she is, and way too good for him.

  67. Badoosh2678 says:

    I squinted real hard like – that says 42 right?? And she looks old for 42 even!

  68. fiddlefaddle says:

    Eh, I know many people (both men and women) who look a lot older than their years. One 35-year-old I know could easily pass for sixty. She’s an actress and usually plays old women, so she made her unusual looks work for her.

    A while ago I also met an 18-year-old who looked more like 40, with deep laugh lines and under eye bags.

    It sucks but what can you do. Would probably feel awful to have this many people declaiming how old you look.

  69. hannah89 says:

    she is NOT 32. the neck gives her away. that is the neck of a woman not in her thirties.

    • fiddlefaddle says:

      What’s wrong with her neck?

      Just looked at a photo of Natalie Portman a few minutes ago, and I didn’t see much difference.

      • hannah89 says:

        the neck is a very accurate indicator of how old a woman is. it can be pulled back to create the illusion of tightness, but the quality/fold/texture of the skin always gives it away. you dont even need to take an upclose look.

        w/natalie portman, at least what google is showing me w/her in that
        yellow dress at 2017 globes, you can start to see her next showing her age. she is 36, which is long in the tooth for a female star.

        you can shape your body and fill your face, but your 1) neck and 2) hands will always tell the truth.

      • fiddlefaddle says:

        Of course. But whilst the neck is an indicator of ageing, it doesn’t reveal your actual age, because people don’t age at the same rate. Meryl Streep’s neck at 68 looks like my cousin’s at 46.

  70. enora says:

    52 ! there s been a mistake….

  71. enora says:

    ….52 ! soulemates….

  72. Vox says:

    That is a HARD 32. I feel bad for her, assuming she’s telling the truth. I hope Sean is good to her, he has a terrible history of disgusting behaviour with women.

  73. blonde555 says:

    Not meant to be rude but WHY do so many people from the UK have such bad teeth? 32 and teeth look horrid.

  74. crazydaisy says:

    Sean Bean = so so hot. wreck or no, he’s got it. enjoy him, Ashley! *Grrrowl*
