It’s not uncommon for well-preserved women of a certain age to seek and attract the company of younger men. This seems especially true in celebrity circles. These “cougar” relationships don’t always go the distance, but both parties seem to enjoy the connection while it lasts. Sometimes these older women/younger men affiliations end badly, but occasionally an authentic love match is made despite the age gap. Here are 10 celebrity cougars who have romanced younger partners to varying degrees of success.
1. Jennifer Lopez
J-Lo always seems to have a partner, and oftentimes it’s a younger man. When you look like Jen, age doesn’t matter. Following the end of her 7 year marriage to Marc Antony, she had a relationship with backup dancer, Casper Smart. The fact that he was 18 years her junior didn’t seem to phase her. She claimed he helped her heal from her divorce. The couple recently split up after 2.5 years together. Rumors that she is now dating 33 year old Maxim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing with the Stars fame are unconfirmed, but it certainly fits her celebrity cougars profile.
