Younger men have a thing for Jennifer Lopez — both on screen and off.

In the upcoming thriller The Boy Next Door, Lopez stars as Claire, a recently divorced teacher who falls for her much younger neighbor, Noah (played by Ryan Guzman).

In the clip above, exclusively on Yahoo Movies, the barely legal Noah makes a move on Claire like a veteran ladies man, offering her a rare copy of The Iliad and complimenting her looks (instead of her shoes). Ultimately, however, their relationship takes a dark turn.

Does Lopez’s art imitate life? A bit. The 45-year-old performer and self-professed “love addict” has defended her past relationship with Casper Smart, 20 years her junior. “We are desirable older, we can date younger guys and it’s not this big taboo,” Lopez recently told Self magazine. Men have been doing this for years, and it’s no big deal.”

Lopez also admitted she relates to her character in Boy. "I've dated a younger guy once in my life," she said, referring to Smart, with whom she split in June. The entertainer, who is single at the moment, added, "I could definitely understand that part, too — the attraction."

You can see if J.Lo’s fictional attraction is of the fatal variety when The Boy Next Door hits theaters Jan. 23.
