List RulesVote up the most attractive male actors over 40 years old.

The hottest men in Hollywood? Turns out, the longer these hot older men are around, the more we like them! Like fine wine and your favorite pair of jeans, some things just get better with age. The sexiest celebs over 40 (who are still living) are definitive proof that not all guys peak in their 20s. They may be older, but these are certainly some of the best looking male actors.

Wasn't it just yesterday that we were lovingly scribbling about the handsome Ryan Phillippe in our notebooks? The boys of our dreams are now a bunch of good looking older men. Now, he and a bunch of other sexy, surprising actors (like Leonardo DiCaprio) are marching directly over the hill. But we still think these hot older guys are some of the sexiest men in Hollywood. There are hot actors in their 40s, like Ryan Reynolds, as well as hot middle aged men, like Brad Pitt. 

Who do you think are the hottest male celebs over 40? Be sure to vote up your favorite attractive older men, so they can take the top spots on our hot male actors over 40 list.
