Katie Couric is off the market again, this time with financier John Molner, the head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman. The two have been spotted canoodling around New York for awhile.
The soon to be daytime talk show host of "Katie" apparently has a thing for younger men. John is six years younger than Katie, which seems like nothing compared to her five year relationship that ended seven months ago with Brooks Perlin, who was 17 years her junior. We bet they don't call her Perky Katie for nothin'!
Let's take a look at other celebrity women who like to date younger men.
Once upon a time we used to think Mimi only liked older men. After all, she did marry Sony CEO Tommy Mottola, who was 42 at the time of their vows, when she was only 23. The marriage lasted a few years before Mariah gave him the 'ol heave ho in hopes of changing her musical sound and career. Mariah went on to date a few famous hunky dudes including Derek Jeter but married youngster Nick Cannon in 2008 in a secret ceremony after only two months of dating. The two have 10 years between them but it appears age is nothing but a number for them and the couple have joked about their childlike, immature personalities that keeps their spark alive.
At the young age of 20 Selena Gomez can already be seen as a cougar. The Disney star is two years older than her pop star hunk boy toy Justin Bieber who just turned 18 this year. At least now he's legal! The two have been dating since 2010 but didn't officially acknowledge it until 2011 when Selena just couldn't deny her Bieber fever any longer. The Biebs has openly talked about his love and admiration for his gorgeous gal and we can bet there's a few songs on his new album that are about his older lady as well.
It's hard to believe Drew Barrymore is 37 when she still has the skin and attitude of a fresh 20-something. Maybe that's why she's been able to bag so many young hotties over the years including everyone from Ed Westwick (so jealous!) to Justin Long. This year the fresh faced Cover Girl married Will Kopelman, a 34-year-old art consultant. Props to Drew for scoring a mega hottie!
