Cougar on prowl

COURTENEY Cox-Arquette thinks Zac Efron would be a “perfect” boyfriend for an older lady.

The Cougar Town actress, who plays Jules Cobb – a woman who dates younger men in the US drama series, believes the High School Musical hunk is a prime target for other cougars, despite thinking he is too “confident” to be seduced.

Asked what defines a cougar, Courteney, who is married to actor David Arquette, said: “My husband's seven years younger than me, so I must be a cougar. Older women have more experience.

“Zac Efron would be perfect, but he probably has too much confidence to be real prey for a cougar. You know you're a cougar when you're attracted to your son's friends.”

The 45-year-old star, who has five-year-old daughter Coco with David, also admits she is struggling to cope with getting older and constantly worries about her flaws.

She is quoted by Now magazine as saying: “I don't think ageing is great, I'm not having a ball with it. I'm a pretty self-critical person. If it's not one thing I'm obsessed with, it's another. I usually obsess on one thing for a while, then for some reason I don't notice it anymore.

“But then I'll go on to something else.

“I've been that way my whole life.

“I come from a vain family, so this is bound to happen. I'm running that race pretty hard.”
