She has admitted that she always dated ‘macho’ men when she arrived for the first time to Hollywood at the age of eighteen. She now feels a little ‘foolish’ that men had to be play the tough part.
”I had been brought up with macho guys. All my four older brothers were karate black belts. A lot of guys do not want to show they are vulnerable because they regard it as weakness.
”So I ignored that for a time. I was foolish. But at 18 I was attracted to bad boys. I watched what went on around me in Hollywood and wanted to learn.”
At this time the forty year old is reportedly dating fifty three year old Simon Cowell music mogul. Cowell now realizes the fact that there is much more to being a man than having a ”good body” and having an ego.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she added:
”Am I still interested in a guy’s body? Now I have grown up, I am much more of a ‘vibe’ kind of person! If a man has a good body, that is an added plus. But I do not think it is the most important.
”A big turn-on to me is a guy who can have any girl he wants but says no. He has self-control. Not the guy with all the chicks who is insecure.”
Carmen - who had been married to rock guitarist Dave Navarro and hellraising basketball player Dennis Rodman is now on the hunt for the next stage of her life and does hope to maybe one day settle down with a partner who has a ”good heart”. Hopes to start a family when she meets her ‘Mr. Right’.
want someone who can keep me on my toes, has a good sense of humor and a good heart. I love a man who has lived a full life and lived on the edge.
”I want to have a baby and look forward to being a mother one day. At 18, nothing could have been further from my mind!”
