We have been conditioned to fawn over the new “it” guys and girls of today, but we often forget about the seniors whom we love and adore and how hot they were during their prime. Although society often praises youth and being young with people deciding to engage in crazy rituals and some bizarre daily routines, there are some celebrities that have aged gracefully while still reminding us of how hot they were when they were younger. Just because these seniors are over 50 doesn’t mean they’re not still serving us stemming good looks while reminding us of how hot and sexy they were during their prime.
An American Horror Story actress. A supermodel turned actress and singer. The Queen of home living and lifestyle. The list goes on and on when it comes to seniors that were once really hot. From actresses with more than 30 years of experience in the film industry to an actor that has been working in the entertainment business since he was a year old to another actor that has appeared in more than 100 film and television shows, take a look at 18 seniors that were once serious eye-candy during their time in the spotlight.
18 Jane Seymour
Do you remember the hot mom in the movie Wedding Crashers with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson that also had a bunch of hot daughters? Well, that hot mom is none other than British actress Jane Seymour. There is no doubt that she is hot, but in the past, Seymour still had her amazingly great looks. Can you believe Seymour first appeared in films in 1969? Wow, and she still looks amazing. Seymour’s work as an actress has gained her an Emmy Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. From movie roles to appearing on television shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Smallville, and Jane the Virgin, at 65 Seymour was once great eye-candy and still satisfies our sweet tooth.
17 Jack Nicholson
With a smile that teeters along the lines of sinister and mesmerizing, Jack Nicholson in his prime was definitely an example of something nice to look at. Nicholson has been acting since 1957 and continues to wow us on the big screen with his larger-than-life characters and personalities. Whether he’s playing The Joker in the Batman franchise or being the star of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980s film based on Stephen King’s infamous horror book The Shining, we know Nicholson was truly hot. All work and no play may make Jack a dull boy, but his looks are far from dull. Nicholson is 79 years old and continues to act. He also has a long history of dating models and actresses, which is no surprise for a high-profile celebrity and heartthrob.
16 Brigitte Bardot
Brigitte Bardot is a former actress, singer, and supermodel, and it’s no wonder she’s on a list about celebrities that were serious eye-candy in their past. Bardot’s beauty has been seen amongst various platforms and different projects, which has led to a successful career that has always placed her in the spotlight with her stunning and amazing looks. Recognized as one of the biggest sex symbols, along with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Bardot was definitely "it" during her time in the spotlight. Now as a devoted activist for animal rights and being 82 years young, Bardot was a bonafide fox in her day and her photos still have us looking at her like the iconic, international beauty we’ve had the pleasure of watching on screen.
15 Clint Eastwood
During his time as an actor, Clint Eastwood was the epitome of the bad boy character you know you shouldn’t like but you can’t help it because of his dashingly, handsome looks. Eastwood was the prime example of what it meant to be tall, dark, and handsome and provided his audience just that during his time on the big screen. Eastwood began his career in 1954 as an actor, but has proven his talents go beyond being in front of the screen through his various projects as a director, producer, composer, and much more. Eastwood is 86 years old, but man you can’t deny how hot he was in the past, especially when playing a cowboy. Eastwood has been married and divorced twice, and has had various long-term relationships, but can you really blame the man for wanting to share his hotness with the world?
14 Martha Stewart
She may be the mother of modern-day interior and quality, attainable lifestyle, but Martha Stewart’s career goes beyond her cookbooks, bed sheets, and occasional comedic bone we got a taste of during the Roast of Justin Bieber. Before being deemed as the canning and jarring queen, and prior to her run-in with the law, which landed her in prison, Stewart’s good looks landed her modeling roles and was featured on television commercials and magazines. Stewart was also a babysitter for a few players in the New York Yankees (talk about having a hot babysitter). Stewart is now 75 years old, and continues to win us over with her humor, life tips, and a new-found friendship and television show with rapper Snoop Dogg.
13 Michael Caine
We’ve seen Sir Michael Caine all over the screen including playing Alfred Pennyworth in The Dark Knight film trilogy and The Prestige rejoining Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan again to make another film, but let’s not forget about how hot he was in his heyday. Caine began his acting career in 1953, and has been featured in numerous films including Inception, Interstellar, and even making an appearance in Pixar’s Cars 2. Caine was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000 and has many accomplishments during his career including Caine is one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting in every decade from the 1960s to 2000s. Caine’s boyish good looks, along with his British accent, of course, makes him one of the actors we love to see Throwback Thursday photos of to reminisce on his hotness.
12 Betty White
If you ask what Betty White’s career included, the better question would be, what hasn’t White done within her long, successful career in Hollywood. With titles like actress, activist, author, comedian, radio host, and television personality, White has done it all and continues to share her talents with the world to this day. While most will likely remember White’s most notable role as Rose on the hit comedy show The Golden Girls, White has been in Hollywood since 1939 (she started at the age of 17). At 94, White continues to act, serve as an animal rights activist, and is as cute as a button. Any woman that is 94 and still wears heels deserves to be commended.
11 Jeff Bridges
Jeff Bridges, who is an actor, singer, producer, and composer, is no stranger to acting as he comes from a family of actors. Beginning his career in the 1950s, Bridges began his acting career at 1 years old in the film The Company She Keeps. Bridges also was a frequent guest, along with his brother, Beau, on his father’s show Sea Hunt making audiences fall more in love with his charm and handsomeness. With more than six decades in the film and television industry, Bridges has graced us with his great looks. With big hit films like The Big Lebowski, Seabiscuit, and Iron Man under his belt, we’ve seen a lot of Jeff Bridges, and when you’re that hot, no one is going to complain. Bridges is now 66 years old and still going strong.
10 Diana Rigg
If you’re a fan of comic books and superheroes, then you’ve surely heard of Diana Rigg. If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, then you’ve definitely heard of her; or will at least recognize her face. Rigg, who is an English actress, starred in the 1960s The Avengers television series playing the role of Emma Peel. She is also known amongst today’s television connoisseurs and binge watchers as Olenna Tyrell in the cult-classic, critically acclaimed HBO series Game of Thrones. Whether or not you want to call her Emma or Olenna, Rigg, who is now 78, is now known to rock a short-blonde bob haircut, but in the past Rigg’s luxurious locks as a brunette was part of her secret weapon as some serious eye-candy.
9 Steve Martin
Steve Martin, another member of the silver fox, also was serving up serious eye-candy during his prime. Martin has been an actor since the 1960s and is still going strong in the business. While Martin may be most recognized for his gray hair color, in his youth, Martin was hot with his full head of dark, black hair. Martin has achieved much success during his career including being ranked sixth among a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comics in 2004. Martin has also won an Emmy, Grammy, and American Comedy award, along with a list of others. While we haven’t seen Martin, who is 71, on the big screen for a few years, he has released a Bluegrass album last year that reached number 1 on the US Bluegrass charts.
8 Goldie Hawn
If you thought Kate Hudson was hot, you’ve got to see her mom, Goldie Hawn, who can be credited for passing her great genes down to her daughter. While Hawn may be 70 years old, the blonde beauty is still as hot and gorgeous as she was when she first stepped into Hollywood. With roles in movies dating back to the 1960s, Hawn sizzled on screen with her gorgeous looks, luscious blonde locks, and beautiful blue eyes sure to draw you into her gaze. Sorry Kate, but your mom was super hot and still looks great till this day. Maybe this is a preview of how great Kate will look as she gets older. If so, we’re ready for it. And if not, then we can still stare in awe at Hawn.
7 Christopher Walken
Christopher Walken has acted in more than 100 films and television shows during his career, which is a treat for us as the actor and dancer is not only a superb actor, but he was some serious eye-candy back in the day. Since making his acting debut in 1952, Walken’s films have grossed more than $1 billion in the United States alone. Walken has appeared in various films including A View to a Kill, Batman Returns, Pulp Fiction, Sleepy Hollow, Catch Me If You Can, and Hairspray. Walken has also appeared on Saturday Night Live a few times. Walken, who is now 73, has been married to his wife, Georgianne, since 1969. Sorry, this one is taken and has been taken for a very long time, but there’s no harm in looking back at at old photos and films.
6 Carrie Fisher
Being a princess is not easy, especially when you’re a princess in a movie series that has created multiple remakes, tons of toys, video games, spoofs, and much more. Carrie Fisher is the original Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy from 1977 to 1983 and that comes with big responsibilities. Her iconic brunette hair and two buns have inspired many hairstyles and fashion trends that we still see on the runway and a part of fashion on the street daily. Fisher, who is 59, has been publicly open about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and her use of drugs and self-prescription medication. Fisher returned to the Star Wars franchise in 2015 with a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and we still relish in her beauty.
5 John Slattery
While John Slattery has been seen rocking his gray hair for over 15 years, he’s still really hot and has been since his debut on the screen. Most known for his role as Roger Sterling in Mad Men and also roles in the Marvel Universe in Iron Man 2, Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War. Stepping on the big screen in 1989, Slattery is still acting and also serves as a director. Did you know Slattery was in Sex and the City playing Carrie’s politician boyfriend? Even then, he still had gray hair and somehow made it look sexy. Slattery is 54, and not quite a senior but rather a hot middle-aged man, and continues to act. Ever wonder what happened to Roger Sterling since he moved to Paris with Marie? We’re sure he’s somewhere happily eating croissants with the best head of gray hair.
4 Helen Mirren
Dame Helen Mirren is hot now and has always been a serious piece of eye-candy. Starring in various films and being nominated and winning prestigious acting roles, Mirren has been on the acting scene since 1966. With perfectly coiffed hair and a beautiful smile, it’s no wonder that Mirren was a fox during her prime acting years. While thinking of all of Mirren’s work during her lucrative career, her foxy good looks is visible in all of her films, television appearances, and stints in the theatre. At 71 years old, Mirren is still an active actress and stuns us with all of her appearances on the red carpet in form fitting dresses that show off her sex appeal even at the age of 71.
3 Chevy Chase
When you think of classic holiday movies, National Lampoon is definitely high on the list of the best Christmas movies of all time. While it was Chase’s first debut on the big screen, and the movie later grew bigger with various spin-off movies and movies that resembled the original’s style and dynamic, he later went on to become a household name when it comes to comedy and entertainment. We know Chase for his appearance on Saturday Night Live and Community, however, we can’t look past Chase’s good looks during his prime. Now, Chase, who is 73, is a part of the silver fox club with other actors including Steve Martin and John Slattery, but we still can’t help but look at his old pictures and sit back in awe.
2 Jessica Lange
Jessica Lange is a well-known actress with big roles in major movies including King Kong (the original one), Grey Gardens, Losing Isaiah, and many more. While Lange has stunned us all with her great acting skills and theatrical abilities, we can’t overlook her stunningly gorgeous looks. The blonde bombshell has been within the film industry since the 1970s and since her debut, her beauty has always been undeniable. Even during her time on FX’s American Horror Story, which Lange currently isn’t on because of her role in a Broadway play, Lange still has the strut and captivating gaze she had in her youth. Lange may be 67, but she doesn’t look a day over 40.
1 Paul Hogan
He may be known as Michael "Crocodile" Dundee in the movie Crocodile Dundee, but Paul Hogan is totally an actor that was once serious eye-candy. The Australian comedian, actor and television presenter made his way on the screen in the 1970s and has gained international status and prestige from the Crocodile Dundee franchise. Hogan was accused of hiding nearly $40 million from the Australian government in offshore funds, but the five-year investigation was closed after the Australian Crime Commission didn’t have enough evidence to pursue legal action. While we haven’t seen much of Hogan on the screen, we can’t deny how hot he was during his youth and how he even made a leather, sleeveless vest with nothing underneath look hot and sexy: his head full of blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes are just the icing on top of the cake.
