A woman is as old as she looks; a man is as old as he thinks. Powerful men world over have proved this dictum right time and again. This time it is Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy. 87 years-old Hefner got engaged to his 24 years-old girlfriend Crystal Harris. Harris was Playboy Playmate of the month for December 2009. Hefner was twice married and divorced before he got engaged to Harris.
