George Clooney Waves The Flag For Silver Foxes Everywhere

George Clooney is known for his silver-hued locks, and has made a name for himself as one of the sexiest silver foxes in showbiz. 

Which is why we’re overjoyed at his latest statement that he’s going to continue to grow old gracefully – which means never reaching for that bottle of dye.

‘You have to come to terms with getting older and not trying to fight it,’ Clooney said in an interview with the BBC. ‘I’m a big believer in the idea that you can’t try to look younger. You just have to try to look the best you can at the age you are.’ 

The 54-year-old is also strongly opposed to surgery, and feels way more comfortable rocking his au naturel hair and visage. When asked about plastic surgery or dyeing his hair, the actor replied:

‘Clearly, I haven’t. For me, it isn’t an issue or an option… It wouldn’t make much sense.’

It really wouldn’t, George. Especially not as gorgeous grey-haired men are pretty much top of our crush list right now.

Feast your eyes on our favourite silver haired foxes…

Gary Lineker

When he’s not beating world records with his football tekkers, Gary Lineker is scoring himself serious style points – just look at those shiny locks. Model wife Danielle Bux sure is one lucky lady..

Jose Mourino

Yes, hes’s very shouty. And very sweary. But who doesn’t love a man with passion? Footballer manager Jose Mourinho and his sexy salt ‘n’ pepper hair keeps us tuned into those Chelsea matches time after time. And we’re totally jealous of that all-year-round tan.


Richard Gere

This 65-year-old silver fox has been grey ever since we can remember, and let’s all make this clear – he wears that badge loud and proud. ‘I have never dyed my hair in my life – and I am not going to start now’, says the Pretty Woman star. ‘I have had to darken it for a couple of films, such as Unfaithful It perhaps knocks off five years, no more. But the moment filming is over, I just let it go grey again.’


John Slattery

There’s nothing like a smooth-talking, powerful partner of a top advertising firm with an icy barnet to get the ladies swooning. And Made Men‘s Roger Sterling was all this and more. We imagine Slattery to smell like strong whiskey and expensive cologne, and that’s more than okay by us.


George/Larry Lamb 

Flying the flag for frosty tipped fellas the world over are handsome father/son duo Larry and George Lamb. The 35-year-old TV presenter may have started going grey earlier than most, but one look at his dad assured everyone that this was only a very, very good thing. Double the grey, double the fun. 



Eric Dane

Fans of Grey’s Anatomy will know that it was all about McSteamy when it came to our hospital-based eye candy. And this 42-year-old has only got finer with age – we’re lost in those baby blues.


John Bishop 

What is it about John Bishop? The accent. The wit. That smile. He’s our floppy-haired comedy crush, and that subtle platinum tiny only adds to the silver fox sex appeal.
