They are rich, successful, and totally hot! Even after turning 40, these leading men in Hollywood are as sexy as when they were young. We are talking about hit-makers and award-winners who made us swoon then as well as now!
Though Tom Cruise has been in the industry for a few decades, he just keeps getting better and better – oh, wait, his acting chops too!
From a fresh-faced kid in Risky Business, to a cocky fighter pilot in Top Gun, to agent provocateur in Mission Impossible, Tom has done it all! And even if he’s got a long list of movies on his resume, his face and body barely shows a single sign of age.
With Mission Impossible: IV in the making, we are anxiously anticipating a shirtless Tom on the big screen again!
The ladies from Sex and the City dubbed him “fine wine”, because George Clooney gets better with age. Another nickname for him would be “Gorgeous George”, because he is absolutely, stunningly gorgeous.
I liked his short curls in ER, and I loved his buzz in The American. But then again, George Clooney looks good in any haircut – shave his head, and he is still “Gorgeous George”!
Robert Downey Jr.
I wouldn’t consider Robert Downey Jr. a heart-throb, yet he never left my mind. Ever since I saw him in 1989’s Chances Are, he has been the cute guy with puppy dog eyes. With a charming wit, Robert Downey Jr. may just be one of the most talented actors in Hollywood .
But lately, especially after Iron Man 1 and 2, his body started to look pretty sexy. I must say the boyish look plus the sexy abs is a good look for this 45-year old.
With bulging biceps, throaty voice and that sexy bald head, Vin Diesel was a sex symbol in the early 2000’s. Especially after his breakout role in The Fast and the Furious, he got the ladies’ engines roaring!
Today, at age 43, Vin is still buff and handsome. Though he likes to dress up on the red carpet, we prefer seeing his biceps in a tight wife beater.
In all 3 installments of the X Men, Wolverine was my favorite – not because I liked the comic character, but because of Hugh Jackman. He is the hottie up in the Hollywood hills from the shores down under.
Manly enough to brave Broadway, this Aussie was in Tony-award winning musical, The Boy from Oz.
A hunky guy who sings and dances – hot off the charts!
With a cool attitude, Keanu Reeves has smoking hot looks. As a perfect mix of English, Chinese, Hawaiian and Portuguese, this Hollywood hunk doesn’t lack any exotic appeal.
We all remember him in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure – wow! Was it really 11 years ago? He was such a cutie! All grown and manned up, Keanu made the perfect macho detective in Speed and “The One” in The Matrix.
However hot he looked in those action movies, I still prefer him in more romantic films like A Walk in the Clouds and Sweet November.
But whatever movie he is in, he steams up the screen.
Richard Gere is the oldest member of this list, but he puts up a good fight.
Though he played many great roles, my pick would be his portrayal of business man, Edward Lewis, in Pretty Woman. Distinguished, handsome and always in a suit, his version of Edward Lewis was very much every pretty woman’s dream.
At age 61, Richard Gere is now spotting a head of salt-and-pepper hair and maturing features. But he still has a generous smile and a body that just doesn’t age. He is sexy then and sexier now.
I left the best for last! Hailing from Springfield , Missouri , Brad Pitt was just a Midwestern boy with a westbound dream. In his senior year of college, he packed up the car, drove to California and never looked back. Twenty something years later, he is one of the most famous men in Hollywood – and the hottest too!
His shirtless scene in Thelma & Louise stole the movie. Then he played Tristan in epic, Legends of the Fall, and mesmerized us with that long, golden hair.
Shirtless, sweaty and incredibly fit, Brad Pitt was Tyler Dergan’s alter ego in Fight Club. The dude was sexy even when he was all beat up!
After 3 kids with sweetheart Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt is now globe-trotting to better the world, producing Oscar-worthy movies and playing dad to 6 kids.
No matter how busy, Brad Pitt still manages to look absolutely gorgeous!
While the rest of us age, these leading men in Hollywood get hotter and hotter. There must be a fountain of youth they know about! Lucky for us, these eye candies make some of the best box office movies – so we get plenty of opportunities to see them on screen!
