People Magazine came out with its Sexiest Man Alive for 2006 this week, and for the second time, chose George Clooney.
They'll only get raves from me. I've watched OCEAN'S 11 so many times I've got the lines memorized. And I admit I saw SOLARIS on the big screen simply because of all the hoopla about his backside!
In any case, those movies were a few years ago, and our boy George is well into his forties now, and gracing People's cover with unabashedly gray hair. It made me think about him and some of his forty-something colleagues who have been in the public eye for years, and what they looked like "then" as opposed to "now"...
"Brad to the Bone" Pitt
"Gorgeous George" Clooney
Patrick "Dr. McDreamy" Dempsey
Antonio "He'll Always Be Zorro to Me" Bandaras
Are they as good-looking as ever? Maybe better? Can you think of some other mah-ve-lous looking forty-something men who we have watched mature?
