Cubana-Americana actress and fashion designer Eva Mendes broke hearts everywhere when she started dating Canadian hottie Ryan Gosling, 35. Eva, 42, has been Ryan’s dream girl for the past several years. The two movie stars already have a daughter together and are expecting baby number two despite their seven-year age gap.

Let’s kick the list off with a telenovela May-December romance that was full of drama on and off the set. Actors Hector, now 51, and Michelle, 36, met during filming the telenovela “Mi pequeña traviesa,” which TBH had a weird premise when you think about a 30-something man falling for a teen. Life imitated art when Hector and Michelle, who share a 15-year age gap, started dating, eventually married and later ended their romance after a nasty divorce. So much for their happy ending. ?

These telenovela hotties are following Sebastián and Angelique’s lead after falling for each other while filming “Lo Imperdonable,” pushing aside their 12-year age gap. Both of them are pretty hush-hush on social media — perhaps because 41-year-old Sánchez is finalizing his divorce with his wife after two years – the scandal! — but thanks to Mexican paparazzi, we’ve seen his romantic dates on the beach with 29-year-old Ana Brenda. Iván was even caught with his pants down during one of his beach getaways! ? ?

Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello

Colombian Sofía recently got married to her sweetheart, Joe, who is four years younger than she is. We love how 39-year-old Joe is so appreciative of 43-year-old Sofía’s Latina roots, like when he tried to dance to dance vallenato with her after she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Goals.

Venezuelan actress and model Gaby Espino, 39, made women everywhere envious when she bagged Cuban-American actor Jencarlos who is 27, 12 years younger than her. Both of them shared a steamy romance for about three years and had a son together — Pitbull was even their child’s godfather! Sadly, the sparks faded as the summer of 2014 came to an end.

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart

Perhaps the cougar of all cougars, 46-year-old Jennifer Lopez didn’t give AF about her 17 year age gap with this backup dancer from Anaheim, Calif. Although the two have tried to deny the sparks in their on-again, off-again relationship, the support she showed 29-year-old Casper during the final show of “American Idol” was super adorbs.

J.Lo’s Social Media Challenge Has Backfired Spectacularly And People Are Having Too Much Fun

J.Lo’s Social Media Challenge Has Backfired Spectacularly And People Are Having Too Much Fun

@jlo / Twitter

Social media challenges are everywhere and some of them are super fun. However, J.Lo’s attempt to create a social media challenge for the anniversary of her song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing.” The challenge has drawn more trolling responses than genuine and here’s why.

J.Lo was probably expecting a different reaction to #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge.

J.Lo’s song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” was released 20 years ago and it was a very important moment in Latino pop culture. We all know the song by heart and if you say you don’t then you aren’t being honest. Yet, J.Lo’s way of trying to celebrate the song’s release is, well, bizarre. We should keep in mind that we are dealing with an ongoing pandemic and it is winter, but J.Lo wants you to find a beach, walk around, and through your clothes and jewelry everywhere?

In fact, one of the responses questioning the challenge has more likes than the original post.

J.Lo literally just walked on the beach and threw her jewelry and clothing around. Like, what is happening here? There are so many questions right now and the text of the original tweet offers no real guidance. How is this a fun challenge?

@_nellerita makes a good point. We don’t have valuables that we can just throw around for a social media challenge. Most challenges involve dances, which gives a set parameter of what to do. This is just too open ended and, quite frankly, a wild concept.

Legit, people have a lot of questions about what is happening with the challenge and the tossing of jewelry.

A lot of people don’t have jewelry just laying around, tbh. We might have an Apple watch that is the only real thing we wear but why would we throw it? It is clear that J.Lo was hoping to see people recreate the iconic scene of the music video when she stripped down to go into the water. While the moment is iconic, it is something that we are not super eager to recreate as we stay isolated during this Covid winter.

Overwhelmingly, this has been the reaction to the #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge.

Most of Twitter is just sitting there trying to figure out what exactly is going on with J.Lo and her challenge. We appreciate someone getting people involved and mobilized. We also want to see our people succeed. However, some things need to be thought out a little bit more than this social media challenge.

JLo Celebrates 20 Years Of “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” By Perfectly Recreating The Iconic Music Video

It’s been twenty (20!) years since Jennifer Lopez’s iconic album J.Lo debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Since then, a lot has happened for the “Let’s Get Loud” international pop icon, not to mention the world.

But to help us all take a stroll down memory lane, J Lo recreated the music video for “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” and it’s honestly perfection. And perhaps kinda strange, since honestly, Lopez doesn’t look any different!

Jennifer Lopez celebrates the 20th anniversary of her album J.Lo in the best way possible.

JLo took us back over the weekend, all the way back to 2001, in honor of her second album J.Lo, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary. The singer re-created a moment from the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” music video to celebrate the last two decades.

J.Lo specifically re-created the scenes on the beach where she discards her possessions and most of her clothes. This time around, she even threw her bracelet into the sand. And while she stopped short of replicating the original video’s ending in which she took her shirt off while walking into the sea, J.Lo ended her micro-update of the clip with a fake-out nodding to that original ending.

“As I reflect on the fact that it’s the #JLo20thAnniversary, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for being with me, loving me and supporting me through all the ups and downs,” Lopez captioned a second post. “Thank you so much for all the love over the past 20 years!! I love you so much!!”

It’s obvious that JLo herself knows just how iconic the song is – which is why, in another Instagram post she ended her caption with the hashtag #MyLoveDontCostAThing.

And, in case you were wondering, this is the original video from 2001.

The original music video was also a work of heart that did justice to the now and forever iconic song.

Her new take on the classic video has also spurred the #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge on social media.

While some tried their best to meet J Lo’s challenge, others pointed out that this must be a rich person’s challenge. I mean, not many of us are going to be ripping off our non-existent diamond jewelery and throwing it into the ocean or sand.

Lopez has a big year ahead of her and we can’t wait to follow along.

It’s been twenty years since J.Lo hit the charts so obviously a lot has happened for the pop star. Most recently, she performed “This Land Is Your Land” at the 2021 presidential inauguration. But she’s just getting started. This year, we can expect so much more, including a new rom-com called Marry Me with Maluma coming out on Valentine’s Day 2021.
