Today is Colin Firth’s 50th birthday, and you know what that means. Time to praise the lord for tight-fitting sweaters and beautiful men with actual talent—in that order. Seriously, though. Has the half-century mark ever looked better? It’s a nice reminder that Hollywood hunks needn’t necessarily hail from Generation Bieber. With that in mind, we count down TIFF’s Top 10 Foxes Over 50.

    I wanted to buy all the tickets for the maverick session with Bruce Springsteen being interviewed by Ed Norton, so i could be alone with them, but , alas, I could not score even 1 ticket. Heavy sigh. Love the Boss.

  • danny

    loooooove the boss.

  • Steve

    over 50 is for sure the new HOT…Helen Miran and all the lads.

  • Kathleen Hall

    I think that Redford, Sheen, and DeNero are still fairly “hot” for their ages. Eastwood’s starting to show his many years of too much sun and desert-like atmospheres; of his past acting years. But, I’m glad he’s still, “behind the Camera”, as he has Directed some really good stuff! As far as Christopher Plummer goes, He is still very debonair, and handsome and of course,very talented. Good for him, that he’s still acting, and is very much still a Loyal Canadian! More power to him!
