Not many people who have seen this remember that Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) had a younger man friend. She pretty much outshined everyone in that movie.
It's kind of funny that what might be the first film to really begin the cougar stereotype featured the Graduate Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) who is supposed to be a fresh-faced college graduate, but Hoffman was 30 at the time. And the aggressive older woman, Mrs. Robinson, who seduced him and was played by Anne Bancroft — she was 36 at the time.
Thelma & Louise
Part of getting a life after leaving your husband, apparently, involves a younger, shirtless Brad Pitt. Can't argue with that.
Y Tu Mamá También
This movie is amazing > part coming-of-age film, part road trip, part melodrama. No matter how surprising the erotic scene is between Ana, Tenoch, and his buddy Julio > there's humor and tenderness there. Seems that Anna is just ready for anything here, but only when she's in the mood.
Sex and the City
The television show turned into a movie that kinda glamourized and pathologized cougars. And shopping. And friendship. And basically everything having to do with women. Mostly talking about Samantha here. But then again - younger guys weren't the only ones on her menu.
Two words: "Stifler's mom." Who could deny the chemistry between Stifler’s mom and her son’s "sophisticated" friend, Finch?
