I don’t know if you’ve seen the trailer for Safe House (2012), but it’s hard to concentrate on the details for thinking, this man is ridiculously beautiful. Then I indulged in several shameless Google searches only to realize he’s 57 years old. 57! and I look at him and have the same response as when I first saw him in Cry Freedom (1987) as Steven Biko. Mmmmm.

Did I say “the same response”? actually, I think the salt & pepper thing works as well for him as for Clooney. I.e., better now than before.

It puts me in mind of last spring’s French Open tennis tournament, when the camera cut over to the eminently beautiful Bjorn Borg and commentator John McEnroe quipped dryly, “It’s such a shame he hasn’t kept his looks.”
