Hi there! I'm watching ML again (with the intention to finish it all this time) and I've been wondering if David's age is ever mentioned. I know their age at the time they were filming (I'm watching season 3). The last episode I saw David mentioned that Maddie was 35 years old (she was probably 37 then). So, how old is he(in real life he was 32)? Just a random question, I guess.

Thinking back I don't think David's age is ever mentioned. Maybe they didn't want him to be younger than Maddie (Bruce Willis is actually 4 years younger than Cybill I believe) -- I think we're supposed to believe they are about the same age - or that he is just a year or two younger than her. Funny that her age is mentioned multiple times, but not his!

Thanks for replying! I hadn't seen the complete series when I got curious about this. I think that in reality they're five years, if I'm not mistaken. I just thought that, like you said, her age was mentioned many times but David's never...interesting...and random at the same time. =)

Ah. You're right...almost exactly 5 years and 1 month apart in age (Cybill born Feb 18th 1950, Bruce born March 19th 1955). I bet that doesn't happen very often nowadays - the leading lady being 5 years older than the man...today it's always older man / (much) younger woman, no?
But yeah, I've been re-watching all the episodes lately and David's age is never mentioned.
I think that generally, they either mention both lead characters age or don't do it at all. I just got curious because they kept saying that Maddie was 35, then 36 and 37, I think...at the beginning they look just about the same age but towards the end, after she had her twins, that's when I noticed that she looked older than him, specially after he was going out with Annie, who looked really young compared to Maddie. But if you paired them up now, you wouldn't be able to say who's older...
