OK, so not every guy can age as flawlessly as George Clooney, but according to the silver fox himself, it’s better to just let Father Time do his thing. And considering the alternatives, we think he’s right. Clooney chatted about aging in Hollywood as a male actor and for him, it’s just about looking the best you can at your age instead of fighting life’s natural progression. 

“You have a couple of options – which is get older or die,” he told BBC Radio host Jenni Murray. “And so you have to get used to the idea that your roles in films and who you are and how you’re perceived is going to change. That will disappoint people at times.” As for his gorgeous gray locks, Clooney (thankfully) has no intention of dying them. “I’ve seen it happen – particularly on men – I don’t think it really works, I think it actually makes you look older. I’m a big believer in the idea that you can’t try to look younger. You just have to look the best you can at the age you are.”

Clearly, Clooney is rocking his 54 years quite nicely. And we’re sure his wife Amal agrees.
