Love, as an older woman: Sam Taylor-Johnson, Kylie Minogue and Drew Barrymore

Cougar, MILF, or even a tragic singleton like 'Bridget Jones', today, we are looking at all the comments used to describe older women when it comes to love and dating.

Sam Taylor-Johnson, in the promotion of her new Amy Winehouse film, is facing renewed scrutiny over her marriage to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who is 23 years her junior. We talk about the internet's intense fascination with their relationship.

We also examine the concept of 'unlucky in love Kylie,' even as she is riding a career high. We wonder why this label of romantic misfortune persists and if it is part of the idea of the female 'Oscar Love Curse'?

Lastly, we explore the stories of women like Drew Barrymore, Linda Evangelista and Enya, who have all said they have 'had it' with romantic relationships.

Join us as we discuss why older women often face so much scrutiny in their search for love or their choice to live without it. And are we ready to move past labels such as 'cougar' and 'spinster'?
