Has Hollywood run out of real men?

So let me get this straight. In 2009, People’s Hottest Bachelor is 23-year-old Chace Crawford. And the actor most likely to star in this year’s biggest box office hit is either 19-year-old Daniel Radcliffe, in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” or 23-year-old Shia LaBeouf, in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”

Suddenly, I feel very old. It’s as though Hollywood is trying to turn me into a cougar. And I hate that word. A lot. 

It’s even hard to watch the 44-year-old Sandra Bullock become a “cougar” opposite the 32-year-old Ryan Reynolds in "The Proposal." Compared to LaBeouf and Radcliffe, Reynolds is a grown-up. But in Hollywood, he becomes the boy to Bullock’s woman.
