PUBLIC OPINION > Marc Anthony Scored a Better Rebound Than JLo
SodaHead Celebs 2012/01/09 22:00:00
Hollywood couples are falling like dominoes this winter. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Katy Perry and Russell Brand, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett... But when Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony split in July after seven years of marriage they didn't waste much time finding new birds. In fact, they're both dating people young enough to be their kids. Anthony, 43, is dating 24-year-old Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima; Lopez, 42, is dating 24-year-old choreographer Casper Smart. Awkward? You bet. We asked SodaHeads which scored the better rebound but that question took second stage to the real issue.
Who Scored the Better Rebound?
55% Prefer Marc Anthony's Rebound
They both got a lot of votes, but Shannon De Lima came out ahead. However, there was a bigger topic of discussion than who did better. Most people were asking what these celebs could possibly be thinking, dating people nearly half their age. Did they not get the notice about Ashton and Demi? It's true that people find love in the strangest places, but that doesn't mean dating a 24-year-old is a good idea. The Top Opinion read, "What could either of them have in common with someone half their age? I think each one is trying to make the other jealous. Jennifer will land on her feet as she is talented and the public loves her ... [Anthony] is a womanizing pig who just happens to come from a wealthy family."
Casper Takes the Teen Vote
For the most part, starting at 18, voters preferred JLo's rebound as they got older. However, teens stood out as the most Casper-friendly group. Judging by the pictures, we can kind of see why young adults would be opposed to the guy -- voters noted a resemblance to K-Fed, "Jersey Shore," and Jon Cryer -- but we're not sure what teens see in him.
Drinkers Dig De Lima
There was an unexpectedly large gap between drinkers and nondrinkers. In fact, nondrinkers were split 50-50 on the vote, while 70% of drinkers preferred De Lima. But it's not like you need beer goggles to see her appeal. A lot of commenters who were going off of appearance seemed to vote for Anthony.
Liberals Like Casper
Now here's one we can't explain. There was actually a significant political difference on who had the better rebound. Conservatives preferred Anthony's date a little more than most, but liberals strongly preferred JLo's. However, the usual religious correlation did not apply: Atheists and agnostics still preferred Anthony's date.
