In the '60s and '70s she was the mother young boy's dreamed of as she played Carol Brady in The Brady Bunch.

But today at 80 years old, actress Florence Henderson has revealed she now has to fight off men half her age.

'I have a website and I get a lot of offers from guys in their 40s who’d love to date me,' she told America's Closer Weekly.

Henderson said she is flattered by the attention and finds the interest from younger men 'very sweet'.

Open to going out with anyone, the actress said any potential suitor must meet her criteria.

'Someone who laughs a lot, has fun and wants to enjoy going out and dancing,' she said of a potential partner.

But despite her admission, Henderson played down claims made by former Brady Brunch co-star Barry Williams that the two went out.

Williams, 59, played her on-screen stepson Greg Brady on the sitcom and Henderson has denied the claims a number of times.

In her memoir Life Is Not a Stage: From Broadway Baby to a Lovely Lady and Beyond, released in 2011, the star devotes a chapter to the part of her life when she appeared on The Brady Bunch from 1969 to 1974.

She uses this to shoot down the alleged off-screen affair with Williams, would have been a teenager at the time - 20 years her junior.

'Barry did have a serious crush on me, which I understood and helped him get past,' Henderson wrote in her book.

'Let us just say that if he had entertained a roll in the hay with me, I would never have done it.'

Despite the claims Henderson said in her book remain good friends.

In January the actress was honored by the Nevada Ballet Theater as its Woman of the Year at the 30th annual Black and White Ball at Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At the event she was reunited with her television sons including Williams and Christopher Knight, who played Peter.

A mother-of-four, Henderson has been married twice, firstly to Ira Bernstein in 1956, whom she divorced in 1985, and her second marriage was to John Kappas from 1987 until he died in 2002.  

In her memoir, Henderson revealed she had affair in the '60s with John Lindsay, while she was married.

Lindsay, who is now deceased, was a New York mayor and Henderson claims he gave her crabs following a one-night stand.

In recent years, the actress competed on Dancing with the Stars (US) aged 76.
