You call them cougars, but really, they’re just women who fall in love with younger men. Who cares? Age doesn’t matter when it comes to love. After all, these female celebrities don’t really look that old. In fact, they make their relationship work and look so damn sexy and soulful!
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
It’s quite clear that Jennifer Lopez is head over heels in love with retired MLB pro Alex Rodriguez who is 6 years younger than her. The two even celebrated their birthdays together last July. Lopez turned 48 on July 24 while Rodriguez turned 42 on July 27. The two made their debut as a couple just last May of this year at the Met Gala.
Lopez shares about her wonderful relationship with Rodriguez, saying: “I’m in a good relationship. I feel like I can say that for the first time – I don’t know – maybe ever.”
“…this is the first relationship I’ve been where I feel like we really make each other better. We complement each other, and there’s really pure, true love. Just wanting to support the other person and make them happy. So there’s a different selflessness in the love that’s beautiful and different. And healthy!,” she continued.
This isn’t the first time Lopez has been involved in a relationship where she was older than her beau. From 2011 – 2016, she dated choreographer Casper Smart who is 18 years younger than her.
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling
Although the couple has a habit of keeping their relationship private, a lot of us know that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have been together for six years. Since they were spotted holding hands at Disneyland back in 2011, the two have shared a lot of sweet moments. Mendes who is 43 years old has two daughters with Gosling, 36. While the two are described as a “notoriously private pair,” they do share some bits of their life together during interviews. In March 2015, Mendes jokingly revealed the secret to keep his man happy. She says: “You can’t do sweatpants…ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!”
In that same year, Gosling also told the press the only quality he’s looking for in a woman is that “she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for!”
Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman
They’ve been married since 2003 and believe it or not, Megan Mullally actually thought Nick Offerman wasn’t that young for him. Mullally shared, “When we met, I was 41, and I’d always had younger guys pursue me, and I was really sick of it. And so I met Nick and I thought, Oh, great,’cause this guy’s like 38! Turns out he was 29. And I was pissed.”
The two said the secret to keeping their marriage is that “We’re never apart for more than two weeks. Just not being separated for Jurassic periods of time seems to help. And no children probably helps a lot.”
Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade
This couple might be one of the sweetest couples as they have not given us shortage of PDA moments. The 44-year old actress Gabrielle Union started dating NBA star Dwayne Wade in 2009. Wade is 10 years younger than Union. When they got married in September 2014, Union instantly became a mom to Wade’s three boys.
Union shared how much she loves the NBA star in an Instagram post where she wrote, “Every day I think there’s no way I could love you any more than I did the day before, but I fall deeper in love with you each morning. Thank you for your belief that we were both capable of evolution and committing to be your best self for our family. Loving u poopy.”
