9 "Extreme Cougar" Role Models
Cougars, they give us a new relationship model, new possibilities, and most importantly, something to gossip about. Cougars are everywhere these days -- on the new special Extreme Cougar Wives -- but they're particularly plentiful in Hollywood, where powerful women are ditching older guys for younger boy toys.
So who are Hollywood's hottest cougars?
Jennifer Lopez might be the cougar to end all cougars. After all, her current boy-toy, Casper Smart, is an adorable 18 years younger than her. He's also a professional dancer, so yeah, she pretty much wins at life.
Linda Hogan, the former wife of Hulk Hogan, was up until recently engaged to Charlie Hill, one of her daughter's friends. Awkward! Alas, it was not to be: This past summer, though, the couple called off their nuptials, though you can catch Hogan shopping for, and trying on wedding dress on Brides of Beverly Hills.
>Oh, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, it seemed like your love would last, despite the 15 year age difference. Demi did some pretty crazy stuff to keep up with Ashton -- like regular blood-lettings. Uh. Apparently she goes through supervised leech treatments. Speaking to David Letterman in 2008, she said, "I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy. These aren't just swamp leeches though - we are talking about highly trained medical leeches." Oh! Medical leeches? With degrees. Wonderful! Anyways, RIP Dashton!
Who would have thought that when Mariah Carey finally remarried, it'd be to babyfaced Nick Cannon, who is 11 years younger than her.
Sandra Bullock scores double cougar points for her one-two knockout; she allegedly dated both Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling, who were 10 and 16 year her junior, respectively (she dated Gosling in his pre-Rachel McAdams, Notebook days.) That's two of The Sexiest Men Alive, y'all.
Kim Cattrall pulled a total Samantha move, and dated chef Alan Wyse for several years. He was 22 years her junior. (FYI, she's now dating a guy who's right around her age).
He's married to one of the Jessica's now, but Cameron Diaz had quite a hold on pop crooner Justin Timberlake in the early 2000s. The pair have an 11 year age gap, and are both really hot.
Thirty-seven-year-old Eva Longoria ditched her cheating hubby Tony Parker in 2010, and began dating Penelope Cruz's baby brother Eduardo Cruz. But these days, she's linked to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, who is a wee 25-years-old.
