Jennifer Lopez doesn't mind being a cougar, she tells the January issue of SELF magazine, in which she covers, “All the old clichés 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 clichés about women. We can date younger guys… it’s no big deal.”
The 45 year-old had dated Casper Smart, who was 18 years her junior.
She continues, “When I face myself, I go, ‘You have a fear of really being on your own. So you know what? That’s what we’re gonna do right now.’ But it took me years to get there. So first it was learning to love myself. And then it was about facing my fears.”
So will you stop with the cliches?
