New Delhi: If singer Jennifer Lopez is planning to marry Casper Smart, who is 18 years younger, Demi Moore is now reportedly dating actor Martin Henderson, 12 years her junior -- cougar relationships, where a woman gets romantically involved with a much younger man, are back in the spotlight in the west.
Reports of a romantic angle between Moore and Henderson's chemistry emerged only recently, but the actress has earlier enjoyed marital bliss with 15-year younger actor Ashton Kutcher. For JLo, there's no man more "secure" than Smart.
"She calls him 'love of my life'. She believes it; she thinks he's the one she's been searching for all these years. He may be younger, but she says he is the most secure man she has ever met. He constantly inspires her and lifts her up," contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.
The term cougar, to denote predatory instincts, is in itself controversial and sexist, women's groups have long held. But the term has come into currency as celebrity women are increasingly finding love and romance in the arms of younger men. In the past as well, Hollywood has witnessed the union of younger men and older women - some worked, some didn't. Clearly, age is no bar here - and why not!
