17 men over 40 who can still make you go weak at the knees

Some of them are well past 40, others even over 50, but in their case age only makes them more charismatic. They’re the exception to the rule.

Here are a few of the men who many of us still consider the best of the best.

George Clooney

53 years old

Clooney is probably the best example of all who proves that age can be to a man’s advantage. He’s starred — so far — in a total of 69 films.

Colin Firth

54 years old

His charm has been having a gravitational pull on us since the days of Mr Darcy. The Oscar-winning actor is married with two children.

Robert Downey Jr.

50 years old

No one has ever looked as cool in a superhero costume at the age of 50 as Robert.

Hugh Jackman

46 years old

Jackman is known for telling anyone who’ll listen just how much he loves his wide…which makes us love him even more!

Javier Bardem

46 years old

Javier is the true embodiment of burning Spanish passion. The eternally youthful and eternally sexy actor has two children with Penelope Cruz.

Brad Pitt

51 years old

A brilliant father to six kids, a talented actor, and quite simply a wonderful human being.

Viggo Mortensen

56 years old

For many, seeing Viggo play Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings was the main reason for going to see the film. They say he’s just as much of a noble knight in real life.

Liam Neeson

62 years old

For his 62 years, the pride of Ireland looks a great deal more youthful than many of the young actors of Hollywood. In that time, he’s starred in 102 films.

Daniel Craig

47 years old

Agent 007 is now synonymous with the name Daniel Craig. And being such a gentleman, he’s certainly worthy of the title of the coolest man in Britain.

Stanley Tucci

54 years old

Stanley brings his natural charisma and charm to every role he plays — all 107 of them.

Keanu Reeves

50 years old

The eternally youthful looking Keanu, with his ravishing appearance, big beautiful eyes, and huge heart, is for some crazy reason still not married. So there’s still hope for some of us yet…

Pierce Brosnan

61 years old

Pierce has been the embodiment of masculinity and charisma for a long time. He has five kids.

Richard Gere

65 years old

Even after all these years, Richard is still as captivating a man as he was in Pretty Woman.

Ralph Fiennes

52 years old

The talented star of The Grand Budapest Hotel and Schindler’s List is such a fantastic guy that it’s hard to believe he’s divorced.

Gerard Butler

45 years old

Gerard at one time worked as a waiter, a ’toy demonstrator’, and even a lawyer. He also won a medal for bravery when he saved a little boy from drowning.

Johnny Depp

51 years old

Who would have thought everyone’s favourite pirate is already 51 years old? According to People magazine, Johnny is the sexiest man alive.

Jared Leto

43 years old

Jared is now 43. You get the feeling that aging has simply stopped in his case. The idol of millions, a talented singer and an Oscar-winning actor.
