In this present day and age where youth is all the rave, there’s always going to be those men whose good looks have been refined with age – older men so dashing you just wanna call them ‘Daddy’ in between sheets. You know what I mean. I love me a tall drink of vintage wine every now and then. If you don’t, well, here’s 11 reasons why you should reconsider, and they’re all mostly sexy salt and pepper celebrities.
I don’t find 41 too old at all. But it would be a serious injustice to my peace of mind if I put together this list without adding the British powerhouse. I mean, come on, I’m still recovering from those pictures of his schlong that he says is not his schlong.
This is one Nollywood movie star who will always have my heart. Whether he’s playing the role of a suave lover in Checkmate, a crazed father in The Diamond Ring, a horny pastor in Private Sin, or aging gracefully at 53, I will always stare at that signature expression of RMD’s where he curls his lips into a smirk, and wonder. . .
Brad will be 51 before the end of the year, and I’m wondering whether I liked the World War Z star better when he was young and pretty or now that he’s handsome and distinguished.
I’ve had a crush on Denzel Washington for a long time. And not just because he’s always the good guy. I mean, look at him in Training Day; all that badness – Ay! And if 59 isn’t too old to party for a month straight, it’s definitely young enough to be the subject of a serious celebrity crush.
The rock legend just recently turned 50 and I’m not sure he doesn’t look better than he did back in his Fly Away days.
At 46, Jamie’s looks and his acting chops are better than ever.
Oh Blair…I remember there was a period I’ll forever fondly recall as my Blair Underwood phase. I watched him on Sex And The City, and then Dirty Sexy Money, and there’s just something about his brooding countenance that I’m sure being 50 won’t diminish.
There’s a reason the ladies love Fred Amata. Whatever the reason, that must be the same reason I find him dashing. And all that his bad-boy-ness, it just doesn’t seem to be going away at 51.
Eddie Murphy’s career may not always have gone uphill but even single, 53-year old Eddie seems to be doing just fine.
It would be another miscarriage of justice if this list was rounded up without featuring the ultimate salt-and-pepper gorgeousness, George Clooney. The Ocean’s Eleven star turned 53 in May, and I’d still love him to play my leading man any day.
This one’s for the sapiosexuals. I don’t mean any disrespect to the US First Lady when I send a little patriotic admiration her husband’s way. But there is just something darn attractive about a man who has more than a little something (no, not down South, but) up North. The President of the United States of America is 53 years young and he’ll probably always be one of my favorite salt and pepper celebrity.
