In Honor of Denzel in GQ, Five Men Who Get Finer With Age
Distinguished. Handsome. Mature. Self-Assured. There’s something about a older man that just makes me weak in the knees.
Denzel Washington reignited our fire for older men who are sharp, disarmingly handsome and confident. Swoon!
Here are five men in the spotlight who, just like wine, are getting finer with age:
1. Denzel Washington
One glance at his GQ cover and you can tell the handsome actor whose made women swoon for decades hasn’t lost an ounce of his sex appeal.
2. President Barack Obama
Four years as President definitely brought some grays, but he’s still just as good-looking and charming as the day he graced our screens as an ambitious Chicago Senator. Mrs. O is one lucky woman.
3. George Clooney
He came into our world as a funny, charismatic actor and evolved into a handsome older man with talent and class to spare. Everything from the way a suit hangs on his frame to his salt and pepper beard gets better with time.
“Twenty years in this game looking seventeen,” Nas said it best. His flawless skin and facial features recall that old adage “black don’t crack.” As he ages, he seems to get more attractive, confident, content and alluring. And there’s something sexy about finding peace in “the good life.” That kind of wisdom and maturity only comes with age.
5. Idris Elba
Idris Elba has the looks, sex appeal and mystery that black women’s fantasies are made of. Yes, he’s always been fine but the Hollywood actor with the flawless chocolate skin and chiseled features is even sexier as he ages. What’s more is he still manages to maintain that boyish charm in a megawatt smile that makes the ladies melt.
