I cannot in any way take credit for this discussion. sheanaSheana started it, and I am shamelessly stealing it from her Facebook, because I am curious as to other people's responses.

The topic is: old people who are hot. I recognize that "old" is a highly subjective and culturally loaded term; however, in this particular discussion, I am operationally defining "old" as "anybody over the age of 60." Below, please find an incomplete list of people we (well, mostly I) think are hot:

Judi Dench
Maggie Smith
Ian McKellen
Toni Morrison
Patrick Stewart
Elisabeth Sladen
Alan Rickman
Helen Mirren
Jeremy Irons
Kate Bornstein
Stevie Nicks

All right, friends list, now it's your turn. Hot old people: GO!

Willem Dafoe, Denis Leary and Christopher Walken come to mind. How old is Cher? She's pretty smoking hot.

Cher, I think, qualifies as "old" under the above parameters. She'd better be hot-- she paid a lot of money to do it. (Speaking of plastic surgery: Dolly Parton-- hot old person, y/y?) I totally get Willem Dafoe, though.

Dolly is totally hot. If Sophia Loren weren't so tan, she would also be hot. Christian always teases me for liking "geezers," (his word not mine!).

I find Sophia Loren attractive, even with her tan. And there is nothing wrong with being geezersexual.

(Oh! Meryl Streep.)

Mmm, Meryl Streep... I like the way you think. I am definitely geezersexual. I have such a bad crush on my much older geology teacher, maybe one day I'll get the courage to ask him for coffee or something.

Ohhhh. Older professors are even hotter. I have a crush on, like, three professors here at the moment.

He is yummy. He gets excited about dinosaurs and is a crotchety old ex-Catholic New Yorker.

your list meets mine fairly closely. What about Alan Rickman? I'm assuming he's near 60 by now.

Also, if you search on youtube there's a video of a young Judi Dench doing "Don't Tell Mama" in the original London cast of THAT'S hot.

Alan Rickman is 63 and smokin' hot. I totally looked him up on the Internets.

Also, I just watched that Cabaret video, and I think I internally combusted.

Alan Rickman's voice makes me feel funny in my tummy.

And I just watched that Cabaret video again....wowza! I think I turned into one of those comic stomping wolves in a zoot suit.

I'd do Mssrs. Rickman and/or Irons with little hesitation. And Ms. Nicks with just a teensy bit.

There is no reason to hesitate when it comes to lusting after Stevie Nicks. I speak from a place of authority.

Jeremy Irons doesn't do much for me, but I thoroughly second wanting to do Alan Rickman without hesitation.

Hey, admitting to not being a 6 is another form of coming out. Give me time.

And Jeremy Irons? Riveting eyes.

Hey, I hear you. I'm totally in that process at the moment.

See, I would totally agree to Jeremy Irons 10-20 years ago. Jeremy Irons now, however, does very little for me.

My favorite didn't make your list... Sean Connery!

I can't believe I forgot him! We share a birthday. Yes, he totally has a place on the list.

I don't think she actually qualifies as old, but...

Joan Jett.
(That's the closest to "old" I could come, sorry! Though Jeremy Irons, Alan Rickman, and Ian McKellen already made your list, so...)

Joan Jett doesn't quite reach the above operational definition of "old." She is hot, though.

Other people who are hot but not quite 60 include: Frances Conroy, Anthony Head, and Judith Butler.

I second the Sean Connery vote

I also didn't realize some of these people were older than 60 (then again, my dad turned 60 last year so it does make sense)
and speaking of my dad, I'll add one of his faves, who I'd say is definitely still hot - Tina Turner

I know. I was pretty shocked to realize that some of the people on this list qualify as senior citizens, too!

Also, I will second Tina Turner.

James Merrill, the only human being who could look hot in birkenstocks.
