What is a “cougar?” And no, I don’t mean a wild cat – well not exactly anyway. The term cougar, refers to a woman who’s dating, having sex with, or married to a much younger man, and usually the woman is 35 or older and their partner is at least 8 to 10 years younger. Hollywood has it’s fair share of cougars, and apparently Halle Berry is at the top of the list!
According to The Women on The Web list of Favorite Cougars, actress (and now yummy mummy) Halle Berry in the top spot. Even Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor) has a spot on the list, as well as Jennifer Aniston, who’s dating a much younger John Mayer.
We can’t forget actress Demi Moore, who’s husband Ashton Kutcher is quite a bit younger – he’s 30, and she’s 45. There’s Madonna, almost 50, and Guy Ritchie, 39 – but they might be kaput.
Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, who’ve been together for 20 years, have 12 years between them. Joan Collins is known for dating and marrying much younger men.
I think it’s fantastic when older women snag a hot, young guy – more power to them!
Halle is (possibly) engaged to Gabriel Aubry – he’s 31, she’s 41 and they have a new daughter together.
