French writer says he is unable to love a 50-year old woman. "I prefer the bodies of younger women"

The French writer and director Yann Moix, says 50-year-old women are too old

His name is Yann Moix, he is a French writer and presenter and has sparked outrage in social media, especially among the female gender. All because for him, who is now 50 years old, women of his age are already old and therefore "invisible"

French writer and director Yann Moix says he is unable to love 50-year-old women because, for him, they are already too old. "They are invisible. I prefer the bodies of younger women. That's all. The body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a 50-year-old woman is not extraordinary at all". The controversial statements were made by Moix in an interview with Marie Claire magazine and sparked revolt among some representatives of the female gender on social media.

Curiously, Yann Moix himself is 50 years old, but she does not see himself loving a woman his age. "When I'm 60 I'll be able to do so," said the writer, who has won several awards, including the Goncourt Prize for his first novel. The author makes other controversial statements throughout the interview. He says, for example, thathe prefers Asian women, especially Koreans, Chinese and Japanese. "It's probably sad and limitating for the women I date, but the Asian type is rich, big and infinite enough for me to not feel embarassed."
