George Clooney was certainly “cute” back in his early days. In the ‘80s he was kind of adorable on The Facts of Life. However, adorable is not how people would describe Clooney today. Plus, the mullet didn’t help him much.
Today, women (and the men who love him) would describe him as pretty damn sexy. In fact, he was named “Sexiest Man Alive” twice by People Magazine. He just really grew into his face and turned into a total smoldering hottie. Salt-and- pepper looks oh so good on you, George.
When Brad Pitt was first starting out, he was pretty. He was probably prettier than most girls. He had a nice body in his debut in Thelma & Louise. But he just looked like such a pouty little baby. Not exactly the hunk he is today.
Now Brad Pitt is in his 50s, and he is so freaking hot. He probably hit his peak in his 40s though. Instead of being the dumb pretty blond, he became a distinguished handsome man (another “Sexiest Man Alive”). He also became a damn good actor.
Honestly, Jeff Goldblum was a little goofy-looking in his 20s. He was tall and lanky and didn’t look like he grew into his body. This is him at about 26-years-old in Invasion of the Body Snatchers(1978). Doesn’t exactly scream hunk, right?
Jeff Goldblum today is actually about to hit his mid-60s, but he still looks damn good. He may be the Sean Connery of our times. But his 40s were definitely his peak. Remember Jurassic Park and Independence Day? Yeah, I bet you will never forget how good his 40-something-self looked in those movies.
Robert Downey had an interesting career in that he was a big 80s actor, fell off the face of the acting earth due to a heroin addiction, only to make a huge comeback in his 40s. But when he was younger, he wasn’t exactly the dreamiest guy on the silver screen. Let’s be happy he got rid of that baby fat around his cheeks.
He. Is. Iron Man. Robert Downey is now one of the sexiest male stars out there. The 40s look really, really good on him. Look at those delicious crow’s feet and laugh lines. The things I would do to that face!
I wouldn’t really care to smell what The Rock was cooking when he was in his 20s. There are just too many things wrong with this picture. The chain over the turtle neck tucked into the jeans, the hair and let’s not forget the fanny pack. No thanks.
Now that Dwayne Johnson is in his mid-40s, he’s looking much better. He’s one of the few guys that actually looks better bald than he does with hair (I’m looking at you, Jason Statham). He’s also established himself as a legitimate actor, so that’s why he doesn’t really go by “The Rock” anymore. It’s Dwayne … Mr. Johnson if you’re nasty.
Actually, she’s fifty now, if you can believe it. And she certainly has that je ne sais quoi and then some. Halle Berry is a late bloomer and her beauty just becomes more interesting and complicated with age.
Well, if she was able to land Ashton Kutcher in her 40s that means she’s pretty damn hot. Demi Moore became the world’s most enviable cougar. Her body in her 40s (and even now at 54) is better than most 20-somethings.
Now Kate Winslet is a regal beauty. She just exudes class and sophistication and is completely radiant. Also, unlike some of the other actresses on this list, she prides on letting herself age naturally. She has never had any Botox done.
Jennifer Lopez features just seem to get even more piercing with age. She may be the modern-age Tina Turner. She’s pushing 50 and she’s still dancing like a mad woman on stage. Oh, and her a** looks better than my face.
