Lookin’ Like New Money: Fine Black Men Who Don’t Age

January 10, 2014  |

Time has been good to these fine fellas. Maybe it’s something in the water, or something that their money can buy, but these 40 and up fellas could still get it (Note: I just like to say that, but seriously, I don’t just spread my goodies like that). Check out 12 celeb men who just don’t age, and we can’t stop giving them the eye!

fine black men Lenny Kravitz

Lenny Kravitz

At 49, Lenny Kravitz doesn’t even try to be a sex pot, he just is one. He’s the bad a** rocker we want to get wild with. Hey boo!


Delroy Lindo

I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s Lindo’s voice. Maybe it’s his swag. Maybe it’s Crooklyn (we really love that movie!). Whatever it is, at 61, Lindo (who is an English-born actor…did you know that!?) looks good!

Peter Thomas

Hey, hey, hey, we know Peter isn’t the sweetest most sensitive guy in the world, but to be in his early 50s, Thomas does look great (and so does his baby-soft skin).


There’s nothing nasty about Nas. The 40-year-old rapper stays spiffy and those lips! That voice! Those eyes! He’s just delicious…


Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed

Who doesn’t love a Tribe Called Quest? But aside from their good music, I couldn’t help but love Q-Tip (The Abstract), 43, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, 43. It’s good to know and see that they’ve both aged like a fine wine.

We’ve said it a million times, and so have you–Pharrell, 40, just doesn’t age. His skin is smooth, his smile is bright and he’s just got that cool factor. He might be married now, but Pharrell will always be my play husband.

"Leon Robinson PF"


Leon has been a cutie for me since I saw him in Cool Runnings as a kid. And things haven’t changed–except his age. Now 51, he’s still a looker.

Dennis Haysbert

Anytime Allstate commercials come on, you can hear Dennis Haysbert’s voice, and it’s smooth as hell! And if that’s not enough, Haysbert just so happens to look like a bag of money at the age of 59. You better do it, sir!


Blair Underwood

The actor, who is 49 years young, has always been quite the looker. He’s got that alluring voice, that beautiful skin, and that curly TWA is very clean. He might not be able to make TV shows hits (sorry about Ironside, bruh), but he can always make our hearts flutter.




Djimon Honsou

Another man looking good at 49, Honsou, with his salt and pepper goatee, is single, and we’re ready to mingle. And is it weird that his bald head is dead s*xy to us? Always been a sucker for the Mr. Clean look!

LL Cool J

Blame it on the lack of facial hair, but LL Cool J literally looks 10 years younger than he is these days. And the fact that he’s so successful still–including being a star of a hit show and hosting the Grammys over the last few years–is pretty attractive too!
