10 Aging Stars Who’ve Still Got It
I’m sure if People Magazine could have, they would have named George Clooney the Sexiest Man Alive every single year, but that would hardly be fair to the rest of the leading men in Hollywood, would it? We can’t think of any other star who has managed to look so consistently sexy over the years; even Brad Pitt is looking a bit scruffy these days compared to the dapper 54-year-old Mr. Clooney.
However, despite our unfading attraction to him, Clooney says he won’t keep acting forever and claims that “nobody really wants to see anybody age.” We get that he’s busy, what with his political and human rights activism, directing career and incredibly accomplished, intelligent and beautiful new wife Amal Alamuddin, but please don’t abandon us, George!
Professional buffoon/television personality Piers Morgan recently drew ire when he criticized Susan Sarandon’s outfit choice at the 2016 SAG Awards. He referred to Sarandon’s clothing, which consisted of a sexy bra-like top under a smart white blazer, as “tacky” and “inappropriate” because she was there to present the In Memoriam reel, but Sarandon’s response was everything: she simply Tweeted another photo of her breasts. We say the 69-year-old actress’ unapologetic sex appeal is totally inspiring! Who says women have to cover up over a certain age?
When she’s not putting sexist and ageist blowhards in their place, Sarandon is still making movies and championing her numerous political causes. Most recently she has been “Feeling the Bern” and has hit the campaign trail to support Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Even though we were devastated to learn that he didn’t do his own singing in The Sound of Music, Christopher Plummer will always have a place in our hearts for playing the stern yet incredibly handsome Captain Von Trapp.
The 86-year-old stage and screen legend continues to captivate audiences decades later and even won a long overdue Oscar (and the title of oldest Oscar winner) in 2012 for his role as a newly out senior citizen in the film Beginners. We have no doubt that Plummer will continue to impress us for years to come, and we look forward to his appearance in the upcoming historical fiction film The Kaiser’s Last Kiss.
