I sometimes still get strange looks from people when I refer to men as ‘Silver Foxes’ but for those in any need of a definition of the term, you needn’t look any further than this list. Grey hair or not, these guys are still rocking it, proving to all that some men really do get better with age.
1. George Clooney
An epitome of the term ‘Silver Fox’, at 55 years of age George Clooney seems to be growing more and more handsome by the second. This list simply couldn’t have opened up with a more obvious example of the term.

2. Richard Gere
Ever the eternal gentleman, Richard Gere first stole our hearts all the way back in 1990 when he played Edward Lewis in smash hit Pretty Woman and thank goodness his looks haven’t shown any sign of subsiding now (27 years later) at age 67.

4. Patrick Dempsey
At first thought, you might not think Patrick Dempsey (a.k.a. ‘McDreamy’) belongs on this list. However, at age 51 he looks all the better for the scattering of silver hair that is starting to shine through and something tells us he’s going to get better looking with every year that passes.

5. Idris Elba
You might be surprised to hear that, at age 44, Idris Elba is actually the youngest person on this list, despite his rugged handsomeness that makes him look considerably older than his years. And to whoever’s idea it was that he let his beard rock out with the grey hair – we tip our hats to you.

8. Harrison Ford
Ok, so 74 years-old might be pushing it for some but there is no denying that this guy has remained one cool customer, ever since his heyday playing the lovable rogue Han Solo in the 70s classic Star Wars franchise.

9. Sean Penn
Counting not only Madonna, but also Charlize Theron more recently as past love-interests, there is clearly something alluring about Sean Penn, which is even more exemplified now that he has graduated to ‘Silver Fox’ status at age 56.
