Looks like Vivica A. Fox is leaving cougar town! During a recent interview with BET, the Hollywood actress said she’s trying to date older men now because she’s looking for more than a six pack and a smile.

“I used to be so lustful. I would lose my mind over a six pack and a smile, it would get me every time and usually get me in trouble. Pretty eyes, pretty teeth? Forget about it! But, I think now I’m looking for a good partner, just a good man, whereas before it would be mostly physical,” she said. “Now, I need a man who’s a gentleman, more old-fashioned. Someone who I could laugh with and have fun with.”

So why is the cut off age? “I’m trying to date above 30 now. Thirty to 35 is the window. Not saying I won’t make an exception if someone special comes along, though,” the 49-year-old starlet added, laughing.

Fox is one year away from the big 5-0 but she says enjoying life not more than ever and ready to find a lifelong partner.

“The best part is waking up every day and being able to do whatever I want,” she said. “I don’t have to answer to anybody, ain’t nobody quizzing Vivica about where she’s going or what she’s doing! But seriously, it’s been a couple of years now since I broke up with my fiancé [Omar White], and I think I’m ready to start dating again.”

Young, old and everything in between, we are not mad at you Vivica!
