And the seventy-nine-year-old actor had a pretty big age gap with his most recent beau.

Dohan was thirty-nine years younger than Pacino...

And despite the pair having dated for over a year, Dohan has recently called it quits on their relationship.

Speaking to Israel's LaIsha magazine, Dohan explained, "It's hard to be with a man so old, even Al Pacino. 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."

Dohan insists there's still a lot of love between them...

She went on, "I had a fight with him and left him recently, but of course I really love and appreciate him, and I was glad to be there for him when he needed me, and to be a part of his legacy."

Now being too old is never a nice reason to be dumped...
