Hotter Over Fifties (HOFS)
As though we don’t have enough acronyms for MH, here is another one. The Independent notes in a February 4 article, “The irresistible rise of the Hotter Over Fifties,” that “the era of the floppy-haired metrosexual is finally over.” Well, thank the gods! Heading the pack is Alec Baldwin (agreed!) and, closer to home (and our hearts), is our own Gabriel Byrne:
Closer to home, Gabriel Byrne is cut from similar cloth. The Dublin-born actor was recently hailed as one of the sexiest celebrities over 50 by Entertainment Weekly. He’s also one of the hottest stars on TV, wowing critics with his role as therapist Dr Paul Westen in HBO’s In Treatment. He gives a gritty performance that draws on a well of experience in a life where he has battled abuse, addiction and depression to get to where he is today. And when you put his wry smile and knowing eyes alongside the vacuous good looks of Zac Efron or the Jonas brothers, it’s not hard to choose who you’d rather spend a night out on the town with.
We obviously could NOT AGREE MORE.
