10+ Female Celebs Who Dated Much Younger Men

The cat's out of the bag: there are many cougars in Hollywood.

Unless you're new around here, you'd know that this is a term used to describe women who date much younger men. We're talking men that could be mistaken as a woman's son!

No shame here, though. Here are 10+ female celebs who dated much younger men. You go girls!

1. Kourtney Kardashian

The reality star has dated a few younger men. First, there was Scott Disick who's four years younger, and then she dated 27-year-old model, Younes Bendjima.

Her new romance with Travis Barker is the exception, as he's 45!

2. Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer looking half her age sure came in handy when she dated someone quite literally half her age.

Her ex-boyfriend, Casper, was 18 years younger. Casper told Univision that everything "clicked" for them when they met. "We spent every day together for a year.”

3. Priyanka Chopra

Ever since she stepped out with Nick Jonas at the 2017 Met Gala, their 10-year age difference has caused a stir.

"I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, no one cares, and actually, people like it," she told InStyle.

4. Cameron Diaz

While she's notoriously private about her relationship with her husband, Benji Madden, we do know that there's a seven-year gap between them.

They've been married since 2015 and welcomed their first child, a baby girl, together in 2020.

5. Kate Beckinsale

Kate's past few boyfriends have all been younger men. In 2019, she dated the then-26-year-old Pete Davidson. Then, the 47-year-old dated 23-year-old singer/songwriter, Goody Grace.

Since she's gotten flack for both relationships, she's opened up about double standards.

More specifically, about society's double standards when women date younger men.

"If everyone’s [expletive] on you, it can make you feel kind of ugh for a minute – especially if there’s really nothing wrong,’" she told Women's Health.

6. Susan Sarandon

When she was 68, she dated 37-year-old screenwriter, Jonathan Bricklin. The pair met in Chile in 2010.

During an interview with Hello magazine, she said that she doesn't see age in a person. “It’s the soul of a person that interests me."

7. Demi Moore

A 16-year age gap couldn't stop the connection between Demi and her ex-husband, Ashton Kutcher.

When they first started dating, she was branded as a "cougar." She spoke out against this term in 2009.

"I'm certainly not the first person to have a relationship with a younger man, but somehow I was plucked out as a bit of a poster girl," she told *W* magazine.

"I don't know why that is!" Unfortunately, their age gap is what attributed to their divorce. She wrote about their struggles in her memoir, Inside Out.

8. Cheryl

This former pair met while Liam was a teenage contestant on X Factor, where Cheryl was a judge. There are 10 years between them.

After dating secretly for a while, they welcomed a child, Bear, together in 2017.

9. Gabrielle Union

The Bring It On star started dating NBA star Dwyane Wade in 2009. Despite nine years between them, Union quickly found that it didn't matter.

"Once I got to understand his background, I came to realise that he's basically Isaac Hayes trapped in a twenty-something body. He's an old soul," she told Essense.

10. Shakira

The singer is currently dating soccer superstar, Gerard Piqué, who's 10 years her junior. The pair have two kids,.

In 2013, the "Hips Don't Lie" singer told Elle that Gerard restored her faith in love.

11. Sam Taylor-Wood

The director met her husband, Aaron Johnson, when he was 18 and she was 42. He starred in her film, Nowhere Boy.

Despite their 24-year age gap, they're going strong. They are married and have two children.

12. Miranda Kerr

When the model met her now-husband, Evan Spiegel, she was initially worried about their nine-year age difference.

"I was like, 'He's cute… but he's way too young to take seriously,'" she told U.K. newspaper The Times in 2017.

13. Halle Berry

There are 16 years between Berry and her former boyfriend, Alex Da Kid.

They started dating in 2017, having made their first public appearance during London Fashion Week. While they didn't work out in the end, we're sure the relationship taught her things.

14. Eva Mendes

Despite six years between them, Mendes has been in a long-term relationship with Ryan Gosling for over a decade.

They have two kids: Esmeralda, 6, and Amada, 4. But you won't catch glimpses of them or even Ryan on social media.

15. Lisa Bonet

Not only did The Crosby Show actress land Jason Momoa, she landed a much younger man. Lisa is 53 while Jason is 41.

Despite this gap, the pair have been married since 2017 and have two children together.

16. Madonna

“It’s just what happens,” Madonna told The New York Daily News about dating younger men. This notably includes model Jesus Luz, who is 10 years younger.

“Most men my age are married with children. They’re not dateable," she added.
