List Rules Handsome gentlemen over the age of 40. No young bucks here.

The hottest men in Hollywood? Turns out, the older they get, the more we like them! Like fine wines, tweens, and your favorite pair of jeans, some things just get better with age. The sexiest celebs over 40 are definitive proof that not all guys peak in their 20s.

Wasn't it just yesterday that we were lovingly scribbling "I <3 Ryan Phillipe" in our notebooks? Now, he and a bunch of other surprising actors (like Josh Duhamel, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, and Leonardo DiCaprio) are marching directly over the hill. But we still think these hot older guys are some of the sexiest men in Hollywood. Give us a fine-as-hell Daniel Craig or Idris Elba over Justin Bieber any day. 

Who are the hottest male celebs over 40? You decide.
