Movie Men



Okay, so I have been watching a lot of older movies and have realized that I have a crush on a lot of actors from back in the day. Holy cow. And now they are pretty old but are still pretty attractive for their age. That’s not to say that there aren’t any attractive men these days, because there are (Can you say Cory Monteith from Glee?! Whoa baby). And these aren't including the classics like Carey Grant, Elvis, James Dean and Paul Newman types. But a little later. Except Jeff Richards...

Here are a few that I was thinking about in no particular order:

Harrison Ford: Indiana Jones era. I mean, just look at him. I love his scruff. He's an archeologist AND a man's man.


Tom Skerrit. I saw him in Parent Trap 2. I know, way cheesy and I can’t believe I admitted to watching it, but I was curious… I couldn't find a picture of him when he was younger, but still, he was pretty attractive in his middle age.


Val Kilmer: Top Gun. Wow. Ignore his sweaty body and he still has a great face. He has a had a rougher aging process, but there is no denying he was a hottie.


Jeff Richards (Benjamin Pontipee from the 1954 version of 7 Brides for 7 Brothers). I really think he was the best looking of the brothers. I am so jealous of Dorkus. Even with a weirdo name she got a hunk of a man.



Dennis Quaid: 1979. This is from the movie Breaking Away. The group I went to Mexico with got mesmerized at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant and this is what was playing on the big screen. Call me crazy, but he really did have great hair, though the late 70's took their toll on it...

Tom Selleck: Yeah. Just look at him. He is just the epitome of a man's man. He's got great hair and gorgeous eyes. And he played a guy named Quigley. Who lived down under.

So that's what I was thinking. All out men. I'm sure there are more on the list. Feel free to add your two cents :)

Isn't it funny when you discover how good looking actors were years ago? I feel like I had that epiphany this summer watching The Sting with Robert Redford. Goodness he was attractive. And I love that picture you put up of Dennis Quaid. Good looking!

Benjamin Pontipee:) I have to say that is top 10 favorite shows of all time...for real.

And, um, you left the one and only Brad Pitt{the older version}off of your list. Granted, he is still TOTALLY hot, but his older stuff like River Runs Through It and Meet Joe Black, or that Thanksgiving episode of Friends {my absolute favorite episode!} He is just lovely to look at:)

Dont forgot Sean Connery! I dont care how old he gets - just the sounds of his voice is HOT!

Holy smokes, I had no idea that Dennis Quaid was hot! LOOK at him! Whooee!

The current Harrison Ford ruins all past Harrison Fords for me. The earrings are so sickening.

Fun post!

For some reason I have a big thing for Gregory Peck -- as Atticus in "To Kill a Mockingbird" and also in "Roman Holiday." Wow!
