12 Hottest Male Actors Who Are Over 50 Years Old
We've all had a crush on a famous person at some time or another. Some you see and at once think "Oh wow, they're cute", and others grow on you over time due to their personality, the roles they play, or their unwavering charisma.
A lot of people don't lose this charm as they get older, although the wealthy do admittedly have an advantage with makeup, plastic surgery, and Photoshop! A lot of men out there only seem to improve with age, and fortunately some of them are famous enough that we can enjoy their beauty! Here are my top twelve favourite actors, in no particular order, above fifty years old who are still gorgeous, cute, handsome, and sexy even in their senior years.
1. George Clooney
Born: May 6, 1961
An obvious one to start with is the dashing George Clooney, who has been attractive for decades. He's probably most well-known for Ocean's Eleven (2001), From Dusk till Dawn (1996), and Argo (2012). I also liked him in Gravity (2013).
I don't crush as hard on Clooney as I do on some of the others on this list, but I know a handsome man when I see one. This talented actor has aged well and continues to inspire dreamy sighs from fans around the world.
2. Colin Firth
Born: September 10th, 1960
Colin Firth was the favourite of many when he starred in Bridget Jones' Diary (2001) and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004). I always preferred his character, Mark Darcy, over Hugh Grant's Daniel Cleaver, too. What really caught my eye, though, was the masculine character he portrayed in Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014). I thought he was cute before, but he really showed his sexy side in that movie!
Mr. Firth is now in his late '50s but still retains his cute and handsome features.
3. Denzel Washington
Born: December 28, 1954
Denzel Washington is just gorgeous, always has been and always will be. I really liked him in Inside Man (2006) and Deja Vu (2006), and he was really good in Flight (2012) as well. You can't deny that Washington is one of America's most handsome actors, and being in his sixties hasn't robbed him of that title.
4. David Thewlis
Born: March 20th, 1963
You'll probably recognise David Thewlis from the Harry Potter series where he played the role of Professor Lupin, one of the teachers at Hogwarts. I also really loved him in Dragonheart (1996).
I feel that Thewlis has only improved with age. He's maintained his slightly nerdy look (nerdy in a good way!) yet got some serious sex appeal along the way. I really enjoyed watching him in Harry Potter!
5. Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Born: April 22nd, 1966
Jeffrey Dean Morgan is an all manly man. He’s currently starring in The Walking Dead as Negan, a cruel villain. Morgan does a great job of portraying the twisted and power-hungry character.
Mr. Morgan was also in Supernatural and Grey’s Anatomy. In his early fifties, he is rocking confidence, charisma, and a devilishly handsome smile.
6. Mel Gibson
Born: January 3rd, 1956
I think everybody has seen at least something with Mel Gibson in it! This handsome Australian has starred in thrillers, horrors, and romantic comedies. He’s well loved by many fans, including me!
I really liked him in Signs (2002) and What Women Want (2000). Although he’s older than he was when he was in those movies, he’s still very handsome and he’ll always have those charming blue eyes!
7. Tobin Bell
Born: August 7th, 1942
Mr. Tobin Bell is known for playing the main antagonist in the horror franchise Saw and the recent sequel Jigsaw (2017). He’s terrifying as Jigsaw but in real life he seems like a caring and kind man, as well as charismatic and sexy!
I like him a lot, and if you know any man in his seventies who looks as good as him, give the man a medal!
8. Ken Watanabe
Born: October 21, 1959
Ken Watanabe is a Japanese actor known for The Last Samurai (2003) and Inception (2010). He is a really handsome guy and just oozes class and charisma. He’s definitely one of the sexiest actors out there, of any age.
9. Harrison Ford
Born: July 13th, 1942
Harrison Ford is an adorable actor most loved for the Star Wars and Indiana Jones series. He hasn’t lost any of that raw charm he’s had since he was young, has he?
10. Jack Nicholson
Born: April 22nd, 1937
Jack Nicholson has never lost the charms of that cheeky grin and dashing charisma. He was already getting on a bit in Anger Management (2003), Something’s Gotta Give (2006), and The Bucket List (2007), and now he’s 80, but I’ve always thought he was really cute and handsome.
11. Sean Bean
Born: April 17th, 1959
Yorkshireman Sean Bean is another well-loved actor. Most know him from the Lord of the Rings movies and Game of Thrones. He also provided the voice of Martin Septim from the fantasy role playing video game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion by Bethesda.
Maybe it’s the Yorkshire twang or that chiselled face, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Sean Bean, and I’m sure I’m not the only one!
12. Ralph Fiennes
Born: December 22nd, 1962
Another familiar face for Harry Potter fans! Although he wasn’t so handsome as Voldemort (I prefer guys with noses), Ralph Fieness is nevertheless a gorgeous artwork of a man. He’s manly, he’s talented, and he’s played in some great movies over the years, such as Schindler’s List (1993), In Bruges (2008), and Skyfall (2012). Definitely one of the hottest over-50s there is.
Some actors who deserve a mention include Brad Pitt (never found him attractive myself, but he’s extremely talented), Liam Neeson (handsome, but thanks to works like Taken (2009) and Fallout 3 (2008) I’ve always seen him more as a father figure), and Johnny Depp (again, never found myself gushing over him although lots of people find him attractive).
People don‘t stop being sexy when they get older! Personally I find salt and pepper hair and crow‘s feet wrinkles very endearing. Did you agree with this list? Which dreamboat do you like best?
