Way back when, we first caught a glimpse of his gorgeousness in magazines or onscreen, and that was it. We were doomed. In love, in lust, in, in, in. Now that some time has passed, and our childhood celebrity crushes have earned a few laugh lines, you’d think some of that infatuation would have faded. Not so much.

In fact, when it comes to some men, the years have just heated up what was once pretty darn cute into something magnificent to behold. There’s no denying it. Some boys just get better and better with age.

Of course, you’ll have to see it to believe it — and enjoy it. So dim the lights and get your fabulously aged wine handy for this exclusive Brazen Woman preview.

OK, he’s no longer Uncle Jesse but still a very touchable type of guy.

 

Hugh Jackman - The 8 Male Celebs Who Have Gotten Better with AgeHugh Jackman

 As a lanky young lad, he had those approachable good looks we appreciate in, well, a friend. 

From the second he raised his brow as the perpetually muscled (and often shirtless, thank goodness) Wolverine, we were way beyond friendship. 

Sean Connery - The 8 Male Celebs Who Have Gotten Better with AgeSean Connery

Mr. Universe indeed. How could he get any better?

All he had to do was look straight at the camera and slay us with his stare.

Shaken, not stirred, anyone?
