Vivica Fox has sworn off younger men, and she’s looking for someone closer to her own age…but not too close.
The Two Can Play That Game actress has always liked them young and fine, but she’s looking for someone with a little more substance these days. If you want Vivica’s attention, you’ve got to bring more to the table than a nice 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,” Vivica told BET. But, I think now I’m looking for a good partner, just a good man, whereas before it would be mostly physical. Now, I need a man who’s a gentleman, more old-fashioned.”
In her new mission to seek out better men, Vivica’s bumped up the age limit for her possible pool of suitors; still, younger guys aren’t completely out of luck. “I’m trying to date above 30 now,” she said. “Thirty to 35 is the window. Not saying I won’t make an exception if someone special comes along, though!”
After two decades of building a thriving career in Hollywood, Vivica wants to have a family. It seemed that she was close to beginning her own family with her former fiance Slim, but the pair split up before they ever made it down the aisle.
The sultry celebrity rehashed exactly why things didn’t work out with her and her fiance Slim during her sit down with Bethenny Frankel. The host pointed out that many assume the reason for the split might have to do with Vivica’s age being a challenge in their journey to parenthood.
“We broke up three months before the wedding. Kids wasn’t the issue at all,” Vivica recalled. “It just wasn’t right and I had to be honest with myself and I wasn’t happy anymore. He is a great guy, he just wasn’t for me.”
She tearfully continued her reflection, stating, “I just had been so focused for the last 20 years on Vivica and my career and the next job and what was the next thing that I could do? I wanted to do something different.”
