Silver Fox (according to the good book of Urban Dictionary):
“An attractive older man. Generally, one that has gray hair and is often desired by younger women.”
We established last week that being a screaming, hysterical teenage girl fan is possibly healthy and normal. There’s plenty of evidence these girls grow up to be successful, well-rounded women (including yours truly).
However, where does that leave a 40-something year old mum?
Sure, I’m happily married (except when he eats the last ANZAC biscuit). Ah, the good ol’ days of innocent courtship and no farting in bed.
Despite her own husband not having a single gray, a sophisticated gal needs her silver fox eye candy, right? Or as they say in Indonesian, do some “eye washing” or get her “basket eyes” on. (Don’t ask me the logic – I have no idea…)
To steal Mumabulous’ famous metaphor…it’s time for new crumpets, the age appropriate kind: chivalrous, charming, a little cultured, slightly mysterious and you know, scandal free.
Someone like this but maybe less abs because some of us can’t concentrate and get our work done. So, Emily from Have A Laugh On Me tells me…Too much hotness. Yes, I see the problem.
Turning to Mr Google, there are no surprises that George Clooney came up as the number one image search for silver fox crumpetness.
Alas, my GC days are over. I see Great Hollywood Sex God George for the philanthropist and political activist. And his fiancé is intelligent, beautiful, successful….yawn! That wedding, by the way…any day now! Prepare for broken hearts!
In an ode to my love of all things Mad Men, John Slattery who plays the wickedly selfish sexist pig, Roger Sterling has to make a mention here. You may also remember him from Sex And The City as “the politico who wants to pee on Carrie”
Then, I discover that he’s married to Talia Balsam who not only plays his older first wife in Mad Men but is the only other woman, to have ever married George Clooney!
How’s that for a Silver Fox Small World!
Melbourne Mum made a timely contribution with this piece of debonair deliciousness. Walking hunk, anyone?
Andrew Lincoln…who played that terribly loveable, sweet guy in Love Actually.
Falling into unrequited love with his best friend’s wife (played by Keira Knightley) and bares his soul to her in cue cards. Remember? Ah yes! Now I can hear you all swooning!
As you were!
Do you like a bit of silver with your celebrity crush? Are dutch ovens customary in your bed? Have you completely lost all concentration?
