Finely groomed gray-haired men are proof that as males age, they just look more distinguished, more elegant and, in general, more like they’d know how to make you feel like a woman. Here are 15 salt and pepper celebrities we wouldn’t mind growing older with (if they were all single).

Dennis Haysbert

Everything about this man says distinguished gentleman and though it’s sometimes hard to believe celebrity endorsements, whenever we hear him on AllState commercials we really do feel like we’re in good hands.

Barack Obama

Hey, the whole country talks about how stunning Michelle Obama is, but President Obama isn’t too shabby himself. Everyone talks about him looking older since he came in office, but we’re digging this new look.

Eric Dane

We think Dr. Mark Sloan from “Grey’s Anatomy” could make even the worst medical news sound okay. In fact, we’d probably ask him to repeat himself just to watch him talk longer.




Giancarlo Esposito

You may not know this of Esposito of “The Usual Suspects” but he was born in Denmark, so he has those adorable Scandinavian cheekbones combined with gorgeous smooth brown skin — and salt and pepper hair only a man of his distinguished age could rock so well.

George Clooney

Clooney will be on lists like these until the day he dies! But since he literally gets more attractive every year, we’re thinking he might be immortal.

Djimon Hounsou

The “Blood Diamond” star actually out-shined Leonardo DiCaprio. And that’s not easy to do.

Pierce Brosnan

It seems to be a universal rule that anyone who ever plays James Bond is then blessed with eternal good looks.

Denzel Washington

Denzel is so undeniably gorgeous that he still looked good in “The Book of Eli” playing a blind man who probably hadn’t showered in a year.

John Slattery

The “Mad Men” star doesn’t have much black left since he became a silver fox rather young, but it’s always worked for him. He’s particularly caught our attention now that his character on “Mad Men” snags the likes of Christina Hendricks. We want what she has!

Mark Ruffalo

Back in his days of “13 Going on 30,” we really weren’t sure how Ruffalo’s boyish, quirky looks would translate in old age. But now we know: they translated into a total silver fox.

Tyson Beckford

Beckford doesn’t have much hair, but in the little he has in that beard that highlights his chiseled jawline, we see some silver hairs and we like it.

Boris Kodjoe

Kodjoe was named one of the “50 Most Beautiful People In The World” by People magazine in 2002 and for good reason. But we think they should consider him for re-nomination, because he’s only gotten hotter in the last 12 years.



Idris Elba

The actor from “Prometheus” is so gorgeous that we were willing to look at dozens of creepy, repulsive aliens just to get a few short glimpses of him.

Hugh Laurie

Laurie has had a long and good career, but he only made his way into our dreams (our inappropriate, steamy dreams) when he became a curmudgeonly doctor on “House.”

Gerard Butler

We can’t decide whether Butler looked his best when he was unbelievably ripped for his role in “300,” or today, with a little weather in his facial hair. And if you’ve seen him in “300,” you know that says a lot for his silver fox look.
