Yes, and some of her other romantic co-stars [e.g., Bob Cummings (b. 1910) and William Holden (b. 1918)] were even younger.  (Holden was young enough to be her son!)  Aside from Mae West, Arthur was one of the only American actresses of her generation who was nearly always older than her male co-stars.  (The only exception I can think of is Ronald Colman in The Talk of the Town, unless you count such actors as Edward Arnold or Edward G. Robinson, who clearly were not intended as a potential love interest.)  This was highly unusual until the advent of Joan Crawford's older woman/younger man phase late in her career, and where the age difference itself was usually central to the plot.

I suspect one reason she ended up being 5-10 years older than most leading actresses of her generation is that she had such a long apprenticeship in largely unsuccessful roles and/or films, so that by the time she really hit her stride (ca. 1935) she was already in her mid-30s.  Of course, the other reason is that audiences were apparently unaware of any age difference, because she looked significantly younger than her true age.
