You can switch the genders in this post and most points would likely still apply.When I was in my early twenties, if a guy acted aloof, called back only sometimes and showed minimal interest, I would get hooked.You could say I was addicted to the bad boy/ unavailable boy/ player.But somewhere in between the passing of a decade, something changed. I became independent, confident, and started to value my self-worth. Now, this has nothing to do with the actual age of a person.I went through hardships and heartbreaks and picked myself back up which built my strength and courage. And as a woman, you are attracted to very different things than you are as a girl. I’m referring to maturity, life vision and stage of life.According to the 2013 census, nearly 60 percent of heterosexual married couples are within two to three years of each other; a union separated by 15 years, like the one between Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook, comes up only 1.6 percent of the time, and some of Emma Stone's recent screen romances with men who exceeded her age by 20 years are reflected by a mere one percent of actual couples.
I don't doubt those percentages would be different if you surveyed only Hollywood, where aging movie stars and powerful producers routinely walk the red carpets with blonde 20-somethings on their arm.
Later in the year, Lawrence is expected to shoot the romantic drama Passengers opposite another actor who'll be in his late 30s, Chris Pratt.
It's further confirmation that like Stone, Lawrence's ascent to the A-list will continue to push her into the arms of older men.
Emma Stone is a mere 26 years old, but in the last cinematic year, she's had four onscreen love-interests who were over 40, including two male characters who were impotent.
Jennifer Lawrence is Hollywood's most in-demand young actress, but ever since she won her Oscar, it's hard for her to find a screen lover who isn't approaching middle age.
In real life, Johansson is married to a man who's two years older than she is, but in the movies, I don't think she's ever dated someone that close in age.
