Benz looking for a new man

The 38-year-old actress was married for nine years and admits the thrill of being married to a man 15 years her senior quickly wore off – and now she wants someone her own age.

Benz says, “Under 35 is too young for me. I’m 38… (I want someone who is) the same age… I was married to someone older and it was appealing for a while, but it was a big age difference and I think the importance is to have someone you can grow with.”

Appearing on U.S. talk show Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday (26Oct10), Benz recruited fellow guest and Millionaire Matchmaker host Patti Stanger to help her snare a new man. Stanger suggested True Blood hunk Sam Trammell would be the perfect partner for the actress.
