Edmund Chen and other desirable 'hunkles' in showbiz

9 December 2013 / 2 years 10 months ago

So, what is a hunkle?

It is a hunk who is old enough to be your uncle, according to urbandictionary.com. If you think a man in his late 40s cannot be sexy, think again.

Here are some of The New Paper's picks for the hottest men above 45:

George Clooney, 52

Hollywood's resident silver fox, most recently seen in Gravity, can send hearts fluttering all over the world with just a grin. Women want to be with him and men want to be him.

Shah Rukh Khan, 48

He has a killer bod, and easy, effortless charm to boot. He still plays the romantic hero in Bollywood movies and that is not likely to stop any time soon.

Liam Neeson, 61

If I ever needed any rescuing, I would hope that the star of Taken would be the one to save me. At 61, he shows no signs of slowing down and has a strong manly presence on screen.

Ken Wantanabe, 54

The star of The Last Samurai and Inception is clearly handsome. Those piercing eyes... He still gets meaty roles in Hollywood.

Edmund Chen, 52

He hardly looks a day over 30 with his toned physique and his infamous rosy cheeks. Who could guess he is the father of two children age 13 and 22?

Rob Lowe, 49

Oh, who could resist those baby blue eyes? The former Brat Packer still looks every bit the sexy heart-throb he was when girls were putting up posters of him in the 80s.

Denzel Washington, 58

The two-time Oscar winner has made countless "sexiest man alive" lists and there is no doubt as to why. He is handsome and age is clearly not a factor.

Hugh Jackman, 45

Thankfully, at 45, he makes it into the list, if barely! The Wolverine star can sing and dance, and boasts a sculpted body, bulging biceps and... oh, I could go on and on.

Jean-Claude Van Damme, 53

A cheesy almost-ran till the Volvo truck ad got us all hot and lathered again. He recently proved that, despite his age, he is still as fit and flexible as ever.

Bruce Springsteen, 64

The rock star bared his toned bod in Brazil three months ago. He should recreate that image of his rear on the cover of Born In The USA...
