These days everyone gets all hot and bothered by the likes of Channing Tatum (ok, he is totally hot) and guys like Scott Eastwood, at least I know Nicole does. Back in the day, Johnny Depp was my guy – back during his Blow and Benny and June days. It’s safe to say I’m pretty over him and have been since he hasn’t stopped playing the same character over and over and over again. And if we go way, way back in the day, my whole heart used to belong to JTT. If you don’t know who JTT is then I’m sorry for you, because he was a huge young hearthrob back in the day, well, him and Devon Sawa! Ok – done, next post on boys will cover the cutest boys from the 90’s. But hold up, let’s discuss the men of the hour. When Jurassic Park came out in 1993, I immediately fell in love with the sexy and very good looking Jeff Goldblum. I mean, the guy is so awkwardly handsome I can barely deal with it. I’m not sure if his sexy voice and nerdy thick rimmed glasses add to his appeal, but I do know that I’m not the only lady that finds him to be a bit irresistible. Now, fast forward and over the years I realized that I also have a crush on a few other leading men who are far too old for me, HOWEVER, to be fair, it’s because of several factors, not just cause they’re hunky. Actually, there are a lot of factors included. So, allow me to list the hunkiest old dudes in Hollywood! We’ll start with my main squeeze.
I mean, the dude is hot! Not going to lie, he freaking creeped me out in The Fly, but fast forward to Jurassic Park and holy smokes!!! He’s like a sexy nerd or something. Who here agrees with me? And not only is he a looker, albeit perhaps not your typical standards of beauty, but he’s a fabulous actor, has a great voice and seems quirky and a little weird. He’s the whole package.
Oh hello there mysterious man that is Jeff Bridges. Want to know what I love about this man more than anything, his absolute undying love for his beautiful wife. He adores her and that’s pretty much sexier than anything else if you ask me. Anytime this looker is at the podium, he just gushes over her. What’s not to love about that? And then the fact that his voice can pretty much soothe one into a deep sleep is pretty rad too. Plus, we shouldn’t forget that he is chill as all hell and probably smokes the grass once in a while. I would just love to sit with him over a glass of whiskey and have him tell me stories about absolutely anything, heck, he can read the ingredients on packaged foods to me and that’d be just fine.
Ok, hold up. I know what you’re thinking…whaaaaat? Yes, Gary Oldman is on my list of hunky older Hollywood actors and I’ll tell you why. Two reasons: The Professional and Brahm Stroker’s Dracula. He played such a bad guy in both films and did so so extremely well, it was basically love at first Gary Oldman blow up. He freaks out. He creeps viewers out. He can be one scary mother f*cker and that’s what I love so much about the man. There is something a bit dark and cynical about him that just sweeps me off my feet!
I’m not sure anyone out there doesn’t or at least didn’t think of Pierce Brosnan as one of the most handsome leading men. Those piercing blue eyes, sophisticated English accent and charming good looks! He’s basically a triple threat! Now, like my other crush, Jeff Bridges, Pierce here adores his longtime lady love. I’m totally that creep that checks in on his papparazzi photos now and again and when those creeps get shots of him and his wife on vacay, he is all over her. And just like the hunks above him, they age with grace. Some guys in the industry (Tom Cruise, cough, cough – enough with the botox – cough, cough) go over board, but not these fellas. No Siree Bob. Like wine, they just keep getting better with age.
JK Simmons was never on my radar…not until I watched Whiplash. Holy shit! This guys does not mess around when it comes to acting, not one bit. And like some of his fellow hunks in this post, he has a bad ass speaking voice along with his yelling voice, he did a lot of that in his Oscar winning role. Speaking of Oscar, he delivered such a sincerely passionate speech, urging the viewers to call their moms and dads, not to text but to call and tell them they love them. Now, if that isn’t a bit on the sexy side, I don’t know what it is. Here’s a little look back at that speech and his win.
I’m totally down with being taken if this dude is going to come looking for me. No, seriously. I actually might just go hide under my bed for few days, send out an SOS and see where my luck takes me. This guy seems like such a gentle giant. I’m not sure how tall he really is, but he seems to be quite tall, tall and handsome! I absolutely loved his role as a cool and sensitive father in Love Actually…one of my favorite films of all time.
Ok let’s hear it for one of the best actors of our time!!! Mr. Daniel Day Lewis is hands down not only talented but beautiful as well. To add to that, he seems a bit shy, modest, manly, humble and brilliant. Here’s the deal, when he acts, I swoon. He may very well be one of the most talented actors of all time and to top it off he’s extremely pretty to look at. Come on Daniel, make another movie. PLLLEEEAAAASEE!
This here gentleman deserves a very special moment. A. Because he is no longer – RIP Alan Rickman. And B. Because he has the best voice of them all. And let’s throw in some mysterious sexiness as well. I have loved him since he co starred with Liam Neeson in Love Actually even though he was being a little bit of a slimy husband, he seemed to redeem himself at the end. And then casting him as the voice of The Caterpillar in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland was a beyond brilliant decision. Much like Jeff Bridges, his voice can soothe a screaming baby to sleep. Unfortunately, he passed away this past January, so we will never experience bedtime stories by the one and only, Alan Rickman. Rest in peace, good sir.
Well, there you have ladies and gents! My top hunkiest older men of Hollywood. Now don’t be shy, do tell….who is your older Hollywood hunky crush!
Love it. Live it. Share it.
