The 6 Sexiest Silver Foxes Alive Right Now

A silver fox is much more than your omnivorous mammal with pointed ears and a long, bushy tail. The new silver foxes – attractive older men with heads of gray – have taken over and are on the prowl…though most of them are married. These men are charismatic, funny, and adorable. They’re all over the media. They’ve influenced Internet blogs and – even – magazine articles!

Name: Anderson Cooper

Name meaning: Manly, brave

Age: 45

Occupation: Broadcast journalist, author, TV personality, and anchor of CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360°

Sign: Gemini

Height: 5’10’’

Interested in: Men

Interesting facts: He’s has a “golden voice,” he doesn’t drink hot beverages, and he started going gray at 20

Reasons to love him: This man was born into a family of elites, as son of writer Wyatt Emory Cooper and heiress Gloria Vanderbilt, and great-great-great grandson of Cornelius Vanderbilt, one of the wealthiest historical figures in the world. It’s obvious he’s got some attractive genes as well, as he began his career in the media at the young age of 10, modeling for brands like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. He’s just too irresistible, with an Ivy League education, a worldly perspective, and a name like “Anderson.” Too bad he would prefer to date another silver fox…

Name: Hugh Laurie

Name meaning: Soul, mind, intellect

Age: 53

Occupation: Actor (House, Sense and Sensibility), comedian, musician (piano, guitar), writer

Sign: Gemini

Height: 6’2’’

Interested in: Women

Interesting facts: He’s into motor biking (he “enjoys the anonymity the motorcycle helmet gives him”)

Reasons to love him: Well for starters, he’s British. I could end there because that’s usually quite attractive on its own, but I think I’ll go on. Hugh Laurie also played the dad in Stuart Little, which was one of the cutest movies to date. Whether it’s the fact that he has two middle names or that he faked an American accent for his role on House (a show that ran from 2004-2012), there’s something mysterious and all too intriguing about this Cambridge-educated fox.

Name: Barack Obama

Name meaning: Blessed

Age: 51

Occupation: Lawyer, law professor, author, politician, and 44th President of the United States

Sign: Capricorn

Height: 6’1’’

Interested in: Women

Interesting facts: His favorite movies are Casablanca and The Godfather (Parts I and II) and he’s a big fan of Spider-Man

Reasons to love him: If I was writing this article four years ago, this attractive executive probably wouldn’t make my list, but it seems a tough term of economic and overseas struggle has turned this fox’s locks silver. Still, it’s hard to ignore that he pulls off the gray quite nicely, and he’s got a great smile. When Obama isn’t sitting high in the Oval Office or meeting with foreign allies, he enjoys playing basketball and playing fetch with his Portuguese Waterdog named Bo.

Sign: Leo

Reasons to love him: Ah John Slattery. So chiseled! So flawless! His hair is impeccable and his eyes are dreamy. With his full head of gray and elegant demeanor, Slattery can pull off the polished suit better than most men in the business.

Height: 6’1’’

Interested in: Women

Name: Jon Stewart

Name meaning: God-given

Age: 50

Occupation: Political satirist, author, media critic, stand-up comedian, and most famously, host of The Daily Show

Sign: Sagittarius

Height: 5’6’’ (I suppose this is why he rarely stands up on The Daily Show)

Interested in: Women

Interesting facts: He majored in chemistry and played soccer during college

Reasons to love him: Humor is one of the most appealing attributes in men, so its no wonder Stewart has made this list. He’s hosted two Academy Awards ceremonies, acted in movies and TV shows on the side, and has more guts than many men on television, having poked fun of nearly every politician in the media. Brain and heart of gold with locks of silver, what else could a woman ask for? TC mark
