Jennifer Lopez Dating Ryan Guzman? — Ellen Confronts Her With ‘Cougar’ Label
Ellen did us all a favor by asking Jennifer everything we secretly want to know about her relationship with her smoking hot Boy Next Door co-star Ryan.
“He’s so fun. He’s a real sweet… He’s a gentleman,” Jennifer gushed about Ryan. “We are doing all this promo together for the movie.”
“So, there’s nothing going on?” Ellen asked.
“No, no, no,” J.Lo swore. “We arrived separately, but then later we went to the parties together. We had some fun, and it was good.”
Ellen, not ready to give up, then asked if Ryan has a girlfriend. “I think he might. I’m not sure. I know he did,” Jennifer replied. When the audience laughed, she said, “What? I’m not in his business like that!”
“Not yet,” Ellen joked. And that’s when huge pictures of a shirtless Ryan appeared on the screen behind J.Lo, prompting her to giggle and ask, “What the heck? What’s going on around here?”
Jennifer Lopez: There’s ‘Nothing Wrong’ With Dating A ‘Younger Guy’
Hilarious! Jokes — and abs — aside, Jennifer wants the world to know that there’s “nothing wrong” with an older woman dating a younger man.
“I hate they have a label for a woman who would date a younger guy,” she told the crowd. “If a younger guy is interested in you, what’s the big deal? What’s the word for the man who’s after younger girls?”
“I’m not after younger guys,” she added. “If younger guys like me then that’s one thing. There’s like guys who just go after younger women. They have no name. No label. And you can date one person. Label.”
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU agree with J.Lo? Do you think it’s OK for a woman to date a younger guy or do you think it’s inappropriate? Comment below and tell us what you think!
