Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Liam Neeson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Springsteen made the list of Top Ten Boomer Hunks.
Compiled by ThirdAge.com, which touts itself as “the biggest and best boomer site for women since 1997,” the top ten boomer hunks list proves that like a fine wine, these 50- & 60-somethings are improving with age.
I’m happy to see a few of my faves on the list (i.e. George Clooney, Denzel Washington), but of course, these are celebrities, so they almost have to make the list. They’re often in the public eye, so they keep themselves up. And whether they’re performers, musicians, or politicians, the fact is they were probably noticed early on because they are attractive, talented, and charismatic. I mean, it’s not like Denzel wasn’t handsome when he was 25, right?
So what about the rest of the boomer men, the ones who don’t make the covers of magazines or have their handsome mugs appearing in the top story on Entertainment Tonight?
You might not be on the celebrity radar, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a certified boomer hunk.
My husband is not a boomer, but he’s decided on a shaved head rather than thinning hair, and I’m just fine with that. Let’s face it: as you age, your looks do change – for better or for worse – but so does your confidence. And an increase in confidence (not ego, mind you) can be way sexier than chiseled abs any day.
So, readers & followers, tell us what you love about your favorite boomer hunk… his salt & pepper hair, his laugh lines, his new spectacles which give him a distinguished air, how cute he is with the grandkids, etc…. get the idea?
