The first day of the A to Z blog challenge is here!
I have been thinking about age…my Mr. Dark & Handsome just turned 50! What!? How could that be – we are still so young, right? Everyone says that 50 is the new 30 and with Mr. D&H I think it might be true. As we age so are our favorite actors. Hey, that starts with an A also. So I made a list of a few of my favorite aging actors that are taking a bite out of middle-age and making it a time to celebrate life. Aging is not a bad thing – it is either get older or die so I want to age with joy and pride. And if my Mr. D&H ages as these guys – well score for me. HAHA
# 1 One of my first TV crushes. He has loved and lost. After saying he would never marry again he has found love for the second time.
# 2 Denzel Washington, 60 – I think I fell in love with him in Glory. He seems so down to earth and grounded. A hard, gritty core surrounded by class and sophistication. What is not to love.
#3 George Clooney 53. The man who says he will never marries then when in his 50s falls hard. George is another one that had gotten better with age and you can’t have a list of sexy over 50 without him on it.
#4 Yes, Uncle Jesse is 51. He sings, makes music and has a silly side that is adorable. John Stamos is the image of classic Greek.
# 5 Robert Downey Jr has had a hard journey and is open an honest about past mistakes. We love the reformed bad boy, don’t we? He’s smart, funny and I imagine high maintenance to live with and love. But you can’t help but love him. Mr. Iron man just turned 50.
#6 Angelina’s man, Brad Pitt is 53. Father of six has a gaze you can’t look away from and that jaw. I love a strong jaw. What do you think of the scruff with grey, Sexy/Not? I say yes.
#7 Jon Bon Jovi 53 is still married to his high school sweetheart. They were married the same year Mr. D&H married me. (1989) I would think being being married to a star rocker could be a challenge but they seem to have made it work. Again with the jaw!
# 8 Approaching 50 Hugh Jackman has attacked middle age with the fierceness of Wolverine. And talk about triple threat this man can do it all. Plus he has been married for twenty years to a women that is ten years older than him.
#9 Fred Navarro
So I’m proud of my own hero – I think he can hold his own with the best of them.
So that leaves number 10 – I need your help. Who did I forget? Who would you put on the list?
