15 Hottest Male Actors Over 40

The best-looking men that have already turned 40 years old. These are some of the finest men alive.

This list of male actors over 40 is smokin’ hot!

These are the 15 hottest men over 40 in Hollywood or anywhere else in the world for that matter. I think you will agree, these are a few of the hottest men in you will ever see in a movie. I have listed a little info on them I think you will enjoy.

Brad Pitt

AKA Angelina Jolie’s Baby daddy.

He was born December 18, 1963.

He is currently 44 years old.

He is one hot Daddy! I am very happy that he has decided to help rebuild New Orleans. A good looking man doing very good charity. Look ladies, chivalry isn’t dead!

Keanu Reeves

AKA “Neo” from the “Matrix”,

Was born on September 2, 1964. He has had a long career in Hollywood since “Bill and Ted’s Excellent adventure”. He has learned a lot about acting since then. He is definitely one of the best actors around.

At 43 years old, he is still one of the hottest men on screen.

Johnny Depp

The star of “Sweeney Todd” has made a name for himself since his days as a cute cop on 21 Jump Street. He is a household name. He also has a hand in some music ventures.

This hottie was born on June 9, 1963.

That is one hot 44 year old.


Dennis Quaid

An A-List leading man.

This hottie was born on April 9, 1954.

He is 54 and still looks amazing. I think he has found the fountain of youth. I’ll never know why Meg Ryan let him go. He is one of the greatest dramatic actors on screen today.

Patrick Dempsey

The main character in “Can’t buy me love” back in the 80s is now “McDreamy” from “Grey’s Anatomy”. He was born January 13, 1966.

This is one of the finest 42-year-olds I’ve ever seen. He sure has aged gracefully. Like a fine wine.

Pierce Brosnan

Born on May 16, 1953

I can not believe 007 is 55! He sure has grown as an actor since “Remington Steele”. He is surely amazing!

What great eye candy.

Viggo Mortensen

Born October 20, 1958

He is best known for his role in “The lord of the rings” as the hottie Aragorn.

I can’t believe he is over 40. He is one gorgeous man.


David Duchovny

Born on August 7, 1960. The actor is best known for his role as “Mulder” in the X-Files. At 47 he still looks hot.

I can’t wait for the new movie to come out on DVD. I will definitely but it.

Richard Gere

Born August 31, 1949.

At 58 this A-lister hasn’t lost any of his sex appeal. The star of “Pretty Woman” has not aged a bit. How does he do it?

Kevin Costner

Born on January 18, 1955.

The “Dances with wolves’” star is 53.

I can’t believe it!

He is still a sexy man. I am amazed that he still has that rugged young look.

Nicolas Cage

January 7, 1964. “Peggy Sue got married” was a long time ago. He still heats up the screen.

“National Treasure’s” 1 and 2’s hot leading man is 44.


Sam Neil

Born on September 14, 1947.

The “Merlin” actor is already 60.

Still hot.

He will be around for a long time!

Bruce Willis

Was once on a TV show. Now he is one hot major movie star.

March 19, 1955

The hero of “Armageddon” is still smokin’ at 53.

Tommy Lee Jones

He has come a long way since playing Loretta Lynn’s husband in “Coal Miner’s Daughter”.

Born on September 15, 1946.

At 61 the “Men in Black” star is still on the hottest of the hot charts.

Hugh Laurie

June 11, 1959

The English actor and star of “House” is already 49. He has been around Hollywood for a long time. He was the Dad on “Stewart Little”.

Great acting as an American.

Tell me if you think I’m right about these men.

    Interesting article and I am comfortable enough to agree that some of these men are very handsome. Now, consider following up with an article about the prettiest women in Hollywood or anywhere else, but please omit the young trashy women, who have made it a career tearing off their cloths in public and getting paid to party the night away, because honestly, there is nothing sexy about a tramp.

    Nice work! Keep it up.

    God Bless,

    i appreciate your taste in men, im not going to say that any of these guys are ugos cause theyre not, but for me, personally, none of them would make my list. but thats just a difference of opinion…for me id definitely put gary oldman, christian bale, ralph feinnes damien lewis and tom cruise just to name a few ;) teeheehee but good show good show

  4. melissa*

    On August 23, 2008 at 3:15 am

    actually strike that, taking a second look a totally agree with nicholas cage richard gere and david duchovny ;)

  5. Paula

    On August 28, 2008 at 1:22 am

    I like your taste in men, although i myself would probably add to the list: Gabriel Byrne (those eyes, that voice!) & #1 hottest old guy ever, Alan Rickman! (sexiest voice ever!) :-)

    On August 29, 2008 at 12:09 pm

    Excuse me? You’ve forgotten George Clooney and Colin Firth! And half those men are ugly!

  7. Christine Ramsay

    On September 3, 2008 at 6:59 am

    I think perhaps I agree with three of your list but I can’t say the others strike me as being good looking. Is Hugh Grant over 40 yet? I adore him

  8. Laura

    On September 3, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    I completely disagree about bruce willis and house being on this list

  9. Mari

    On September 12, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    dermot mulroney!!!
    THE sexiest hottest amazing-est man over 40 by far!

  10. Melissa

    On September 14, 2008 at 6:21 pm

    Sorry I couldn’t include every one I was considering but now I think I can write the 20 hottest guys over 40 now that you’ve mentioned a few of the other guys. Dermont Mulroney is yummy, I agree but I had to cut him from my list. Thanks for the comments!

  11. Dan Haugh

    On September 17, 2008 at 9:06 am

    Nice list. I did discover that as we all grow older the competition gets slimmer. Perhaps in another 15 years I could compete. ;-)
    Good work.
    p.s. I am no expert, but isn’t Patrick Swayze right up there? Come to think of it, I was a bit surprised to see Dennis Quaid.

  12. Shawna

    On October 14, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    Where is John Cusack, Robert Downey Jr. Clive Owen, Dylan McDermott, Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington?

  13. Jaed

    On October 23, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    No Denzel? What about James McAvoy or Matt Damon? Where are all the yong actors?

  14. kacie

    On October 27, 2008 at 8:36 am

    johnny depp should be number 1 =]

  15. Jennifer

    On November 22, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    Patrick Dempsey is so hot…but he was not in the movie Secret Admirer…that was C. Thomas Howell…Maybe you guys were thinking of “Can’t Buy Me Love”

  16. Shannon

    On November 24, 2008 at 12:24 pm

    You want to see one hot actor over 40? Search Dean Cain .
    He plays a geat Superman, wouldn’t you agree ?

  17. Jessica

    On December 2, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    Nice list…don’t agree with all…Hugh Laurie is most definitely my #1. Alan Rickman would be on the list as well.

  23. Cindy

    On February 20, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    Bruce Willis is the sexiest – just like that clean cut look. What about Vin Diesel, the guy is 41 and has a better bod than all these guys, and that voice. Denzel is overrated – glad to see him OFF the list

  24. Susanne

    On April 3, 2009 at 8:12 am

    i love your list..but you missed george clooney

  25. Lisa

    On April 6, 2009 at 10:25 am

    Hugh Grant and Harry Connick Jr.

  26. Lana

    On June 9, 2009 at 1:43 am

    Pretty good list. I do think that Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman, Sean Connery (come on now!),Michael Weatherly, Gabriel Byrne and Robert Downey Jr. should have made the list.

  27. Laurie

    On July 3, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    I agree with most especially Dempsey, Quaid, and Laurie…But, Joe Flanigan is YUMMY and, of course, you can’t forget Kiefer. Alan Rickman is cool, too. Fun list.

  28. krista

    On July 29, 2009 at 6:06 pm

    wow, tommy lee jones is old. hugh grant isn’t that old yet but, he is a total babe. he can be my dad, but he is sooo sexy

  29. Madison

    On August 2, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    David Duchovny I totally agree on. He is very hot. :D Christian Bale is good too. xD But I think his is in his thirties or something.

  30. Julie

    On August 8, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    Agree w/Hugh Laurie…definitely! However, Anthony Stewart Head and James Marsters should be there too!

  31. Ash G

    On August 14, 2009 at 7:30 am

    My top 5 would be….

    1. Colin Firth
    2. Hugh Grant
    3. Johnny Depp
    4. Matt Damon
    5. Patrick Dempsy
    6. Hugh Laurie
    7. Micheal J. Fox
    8. Alan Rickman
    9.Tim Burton (Lol don’t mock me!!! o.o)

    Okay…. top 9 lol XD There are too many hot men over 40…. this is odd o.o but good ;]
    Okay for the hell of it, I shall put Bruce Willis as number 10. for my friend LOL XD

  32. Rita

    On August 16, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    Agreed- Colin Firth! Can\’t help himself.

  33. Robin

    On August 28, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    @jaed: Damon hasn’t turned 40 yet.

    Folks, this is this woman’s opinion. Every one of us is going to have men on their list someone else considers a dirtbag. (Johnny Depp? Ew. Oldman? Double ew. Duchovny? Puddingface.)

  34. Morrigan

    On September 21, 2009 at 7:54 pm

    where’s Sean Connery? or am i just weird. lol

  35. Hailey

    On November 19, 2009 at 5:06 pm

    I think Michael J. Fox should be on here

    On December 4, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    You only included the so-called white guys. What about Jimmy Smits & Esai Morales & Lou Diamond Phillips & Denzel Washington & there’s a host of others. I guess we just have different taste. I prefer my men with a little cafe mocha. Peace!

  38. Sheila

    On December 4, 2009 at 1:13 pm

    PS- Yeah & Vin Diesel is a must. He’d probably be at the top of my list. I agree with Johnny Depp & Keanu Reaves & Tommy Lee Jones.
    1-Vin Diesel
    2-Dean Cain
    3-Jimmy Smits
    4-Lou Diamond Phillips
    5-Johnny Depp
    6-Keanu Reaves
    Somthing like that.

  46. Faith Summer

    On September 24, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    I agree with most of them, never been too fond of nicolas cage, and the list is definately missing george clooney! Although looking at all the comments you might have enough suggestions to do a top 50 soon!

  47. ladym33

    On October 25, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Great list. I don’t agree with all of them, but most of them I do.

  49. Kelly Taylor

    On January 21, 2011 at 11:40 am

  50. Mattie

    On February 10, 2011 at 12:30 am

    My top five would be 1.Steven Tyler 2.George Clooney 3.Brad Pitt 4.Johnny Depp 5.Dennis Quaid :)

  51. Mattie

    On February 10, 2011 at 12:38 am

    Oh it said actors oops ! Well , Steven Tyler does act a little ….

  52. Marci

    On May 28, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Brad Pitt is overexposed and considered a pretty boy. Is controlled by that bi**h Angie, and so is considered officially whipped and a wimp!! Wouldn’t touch him. I like real men.

  53. Heather

    On June 19, 2011 at 4:14 am

    It is my personal opinion that Russell Crowe should be on this list. I mean have you seen Robin Hood? HOTT!

  54. Natalie

    On July 25, 2011 at 5:23 am

    You forgot to put Rob Lowe on there….

  55. Jacklin

    On September 25, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    Johnny Depp should’ve been number one. He’s too hot to be true!!!!!

    You’ve forgotten someone though. Where is George Clooney, Michael Weatherly, Collin Firth, and Hugh Jackman??

  56. Diane

    On September 25, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Okay….why is Liam Neeson not on this list?

  57. RideBlackCowboyStudBrett1953

    On September 26, 2011 at 10:00 am

    Let me see…without appearing braggadocious,Yours Truly would be in the Top Five of this list,but as you can guess by my name,I’ve got three strikes against me to Hollywood’s Tea Party-thinking big-wigs:First,at 58,I’m boyishly handsome.Secondly,I don’t speak,dress-I prefer casual,and sometimes cowboy duds,as my name suggests,and rather than R&B/soul,Gospel,blues,jazz,(c)rap and other “urban” music,I’m into heavy metal,garage rock,Country music,dance-EXCEPT LINE DANCING!!!!-and rodeo.These two aspects of my presentation mean that-Third,Hollywood would want no part of me because I defy their black side-kick to the white star/stud or perverted and/or intellectually challenged pity
    or opprobrium object.That is,though nearing 60,I still said by a lot of ladies to resemble a handsome black cowboy IN my Western gear,and to lay it down BUT GOOD out of it,which would discomfit Tinseltown’s tiny brains too much for their
    considering me for ANY role!!!!

  58. Nosh

    On October 20, 2011 at 8:52 am

    Awh c\’mon. You can\’t seriously leave out the naturally classy men. George clooney, Hugh jack man, colin firth and a majority of those mentioned by the others here. Seriously, with all our contributions, you can up the list to around 30 and more actors,eh?
