          3. George Clooney

          Age: 50

          Quotable quote about aging: "I'm literally aging before your faces. I'm not vain, though," he told German publication Sueddeutsche Zeitung. "I welcome it, the aging. Otherwise I would have colored my hair by now. Of course, I'm not offered the role of the romantic hero that often anymore, but at my age I get to do more and more character roles."

              4. Denzel Washington

              Age: 56

              Quotable quote about aging: Washington talked to Oprah in 2008 about being named the first black Sexiest Man Alive back in 1996. When she asked him if that changed his life, this is what he said: "Nothing changed. It still hasn't. I don't walk around like I'm the sexiest man alive. Then what happens—do you stop being sexy 365 days later? Don't get me wrong: It's nice. But I don't buy into it. It's another label."

                  Age: 41

                  Quotable quote about aging: He told Men's Journal he's a (mostly) reformed bad boy: "I think I get laid less now than I used to, because I'm way more paranoid now – look at f-cking Tiger Woods! I mean, I'm nowhere near as naughty as I used to be, partly because I did a lot of that when I was drinking."
