Jennifer Lopez: Don't Call Me A Cougar!
Jennifer Lopez is not a fan of the term ‘cougar’ – the originally Canadian term for older women on the prowl for younger men that has spread around the globe – and insists she isn't one.
The 45 year-old Booty hitmaker has been forced to swat away rumours that she's dating 27-year-old Ryan Guzman – her co-star in new film The Boy Next Door – and during a new TV interview with U.S. chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, she raged about the ‘cougar’ label had already been tagged with after dating twenty-something dancer Casper Smart.
“I hate that they have a label for a woman who would date a younger guy. If a younger guy is interested in you, what's the big deal? But what's the name for an older guy who's after younger girls?” asked Jlo. "I'm not after younger guys; if younger guys like me, that's one thing, but guys who just go after younger women - they have no label! There's just a little bit of an imbalance there. It's not fair."
