The Hottest Silver Foxes

Updated September 12, 2019 64.0k votes 5.4k voters 386.7k views81 items

Silver foxes are among the sexiest older men on the planet. A bit of gray streaked into a full head of hair on a man with weathered good looks? Swoon. In that spirit, this is a list of celebrities with prematurely grey hair colors, including actors, politicians, TV personalities, and other male celebrities with gray hair.

Who are the hottest gray haired actors? How about Anderson Cooper? Or Richard Gere? Even Steve Martin, who's been grey (or really, white) for practically his entire adult life! Celebs who have grey hair young are popular in the film and TV worlds, working as movie stars, musicians and singers, TV hosts, political commentators, and even elected leaders. If this list is missing your favorite male celebrity with gray hair, add him!
