Even though Jennifer Lopez may have dated younger men in the past, the singer-actress said she doesn't like being labelled as a cougar.
The 45-year-old 'Booty' singer who broke up with choreographer dancer, Casper Smart in June, recently opened up about being romantically involved with men many years younger than her age, admitting it is "no big deal." "So you sympathize, you understand the emotions. And I've dated a younger guy once in my life," JLo said who is gracing Self magazine's January issue showing off her toned body in white outfits.
JLo who is currently single revealed on Self magazine's January cover story that she finds "comfort" in relationships, despite the hardships she has repeatedly faced in her love life.
"All the old cliches about women need to be undone. Enough already. We're in the other position now. We are desirable older, we can date younger guys and it's not this big taboo. Men have been doing this for years, and it's no big deal. Enough with the cliches about women. We can date younger guys ... It's no big deal," she said.
Jennifer Lopez who will be making her big screen comeback with 'The Boy Next Door' said, "I've been through divorce. I've been cheated on, just like every other girl in the world."
The Boy Next Door is an upcoming psychological thriller that features Lopez as a separated woman who falls in love with the high school-aged boy next door. JLo tried to explain the similarities of her role and her real life.
"When you have that much pain, you have to anaesthetise yourself in some ways. People do different things. Some go out and party and sleep around, but that's just not my way. I found the comfort in someone else. That's called being a love addict," she added.
