Legendary actress Whoopi Goldberg has opened up about the cons of dating younger men.

The 65-year-old discussed what should be an age gap between a romantic couple with her "The View" chat show co-hosts Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines and Cindy McCain.

During the discussion, Haines asked Goldberg about her dating preference, "Whoopi, do you go younger or older?" to which she responded, "It depends on my mood."

The video clip of the discussion was shared on Twitter on Wednesday.

In the video, Goldberg explained, "Sometimes you meet somebody who is younger than you and… look, it would be perfect if everybody was well-matched and well put together, but they're not. And you find it where you find it, and it may last a long time or it may not."

Goldberg recalled a point in her life when she was dating a younger man and why she doesn't date them anymore.

"Let me tell you why I stopped doing lots of things with younger folks," she said. "I went out with a younger dude and he said, 'I can't believe this.' I said, 'What are you talking about?' He said, 'I did not know that Paul McCartney had another band.' And you kind of go, 'The Beatles? You've never heard of The Beatles?' 'No!'"

She further explained when you go out with a younger person "there's a lot of information that you have to impart, and sometimes it's tiring."

"But then there's the other way where you're like, 'Yeah, you're younger, but you look good! Yeah, you're alright.' So you never know," she added.

Goldberg was married to footballer Alvin Martin between 1973 and 1979. She went on to marry Dutch cinematographer David Claessen in 1986 and got divorced in 1988. She was also married to actor Lyle Trachtenberg from 1994 to 1995.

On the work front, Goldberg will be next seen in a movie, "Fairy Tale Forest." She will also feature in a TV series, "Harlem," which is currently under post-production. She will also lend her voice to an animated movie, "Pierre the Pigeon-Hawk."
