Whoopi Goldberg reveals why she stopped dating younger men


Hollywood star Whoopi Goldberg realised she had to stop dating younger men after discovering her boyfriend hadn’t heard of the rock band The Beatles.

She said: “Let me tell you why I stopped doing lots of things with younger folks. I went out with a younger dude and he said, ‘I can’t believe this’, I said, ‘What are you talking about?’

“He said, ‘I did not know that Paul McCartney had another band.’And you kind of go, ‘The Beatles? You’ve never heard of The Beatles?’ ‘No!'”

She went on to explain that constantly having to “impart” information can become “tiring”.

She added: “So you have to know when you’re going younger, there’s a lot of information that you have to impart. And sometimes it’s tiring.”

Goldberg said that she won’t completely rule out dating younger men in the future because she often finds them more attractive and it depends on her “mood”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 65-year-old actress said: “But then there’s the other way where you’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re younger, but you look good’. So you never know.”

“It depends on my mood. Because it’s about the person. Sometimes you meet somebody who is younger than you anda look, it would be perfect if everybody was well matched and well put together, but they’re not. And you find it where you find it, and it may last a long time or it may not.”
