Top Ten: Older Men I Have to Have

10.) Michael JordanI grew up in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, when MJ was on top. I saw him slam dunk, try his bat for grand slams, and get looney in Space Jam. There is nothing this man cant do. Including win the heart of a 22 year old.

9.) Sean Connery – I know. He’s a little before my time, but while that makes some men, well, old, it just makes Sean timeless. Throw a killer Scottish accent on him, and you’ve got this pale, freckled girl’s heart racing.

8.) John Stamos – Even his mullet was hot. Even as a little girl – I was in the third grade when Full House ended its run – I watched my favorite TV show for two reasons. 1.) Because I’m the same age as the Olsen twins and I liked to pretend we were total BFFS. 2.) I knew as an 8-year old, that Uncle Jesse was God’s gift to TGIF.

7.) Bill Clinton – Is it creepy that I’m writing this while wearing a blue dress . . . at my internship? Honestly, I just love this man. I know he’s a cheating, misogynist kinda guy, and I should hate him, but something about that just makes him all the more intriguing.

6.) Brad Pitt You may say that Brad Pitt doesn’t count as an “older man.” Well, I’m 22, and I say he does. Because if I came home with Brad Pitt, two things would happen. 1.) My father would take him to the back 40 with his favorite backhoe. 2.) My Auntie M (who’s about four decades my senior) would attempt to dig him back up and run away with him.

5.) Denzel Washington – I contemplated not even putting his last name in the listing. That’s how iconic and gorgeous this man is. He’s just Denzel. I cant quite put my finger on the exact moment I fell in love with him, but I’ll tell you the day I’ll fall out of love with him: Never. Never-ever-ever.

4.) Pierce Brosnan I feel as though there’s no explanation needed here. Have you read my The Price is Wrong post?

3.) George Clooney – Paging Dr. Ross. This blogger seems to have stopped breathing. Could you please assist her with some mouth-to-mouth resuscitation? I grew up getting shoved off to bed before 10 p.m. on Thursdays so my mother could have an hour to herself watching ER. I think I saw her try to make out with the TV once . . .

2 .) Anderson CooperI know what you’re thinking. I might not be his type, right? Look, all I have to say is, this is Anderson Cooper, and I’m an aspiring journalist, and I appreciate him on approximately 14 different levels. Though I admit, 12 of those levels have to do with his hair and/or eyes.

1.) Richard GereAn Officer and a Gentleman was filmed four years before I was born, and I think I knew, in-utero, that he is the single most amazing combination of X and Y chromosomes ever to walk this earth. Richard, if you’re reading this, I just want you to know, I would resort to a life of turning tricks, just to one day see you scale my fire escape.
