Cougars of the Past and Present

Relationships - General

Introduction:I really don't like the name 'Cougar' to describe women that go after younger men. Or women who younger men migrate to. When Hollywood females do it, people act as though the wheel is being reinvented. I've know a wide variety of Cougars, so to speak, all my life but of course, the public doesn't know them, they weren't famous. I have never been one, nor want to be, but there are females who naturally gravitate to the younger man and I say 'to each his own' but please don't make a big deal of it. But to name some famous ones who were identified as Cougars were still plentiful in the older days of Hollywood..........

  • 01

    Marlene Dietrich

    The dynamic and highly versatile actress/singer Marlene Dietrich had several lovers. It is said that her relationship with Yul Brynner was her best and her last. He was much younger than Ms. Dietrich.

  • 02

    Elizabeth Taylor

    Ms. Taylor surprised us all with this sort of blue-collar guy, who was her last husband. Mr. Fortensky was much younger than Elizabeth Taylor but she said that his age and station in life had nothing to do with her feelings and love for him. They are divorced however.

  • 03

    Cher

    Oprah tried to do a show on Cher and her younger lover years and years ago, in the 80's when Cher, clearly in her early 40s dated a 22 year owner of a Bagel shop. They also split years ago. Cher was extremely nonchalant about it, telling Oprah that she knew she had a show to do but the subject of older women and younger men wasn't really that big of a deal, or words to that affect. She is currently dating a 38 year old biker who she said she met on Facebook. It's surprising since she was the sort of Child Bride of Sonny Bono. She seemed to have started the Cougar rage!

  • 04

    Tina Turner

    Tina Turner met German Record Executive Erwin Bach met in approximately 1985. They have continued a romantic relationship since 1985. She is 17 years his senior. Ms. Turner spends her time between her villa in France, her home in Germany and Switzerland. She was also pretty much younger than her only husband Mr. Ike Turner.

  • 05

    Demi Moore

    Demi Moore and Ashten Kutcher have disappointed many of us. But with such conflicting reports, we are not sure what to believe about the split or not split between the two. Ashten is 16 years younger than Demi but they do make a very attractive, stylish couple. Those two kept the Cougar syndrome so much alive but again, it's just another form of headline grabbing, this so-called 'Cougar Syndrome.' It is a really old concept and I say if they like it, I love it. Peace.

    Shoot! That should have been "..younger than I." I know better than to put a typo out there with a bunch of writers reading!

    Count me in there! My very significant other, John, is 12 years younger than me. I tried to throw him back (I was just out of a marriage and practicing "catch and release") but he kept coming back. 3 wonderful years later, I'm glad he stuck!

    I admire cougars yet do not think I could be attracted to or better yet have a relationship with a man the age of my children. I had such an opportunity and just think the name cougars are for someone else. I like your list.Well presented with admired cougars.
