* James May has apparently not lost any female followers as he moved from the [[SkunkStripe Skunk Stripes]] he sported on ''Series/TopGear'' to becoming fully gray by ''Series/TheGrandTour''.

* [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Joseph Joestar]] during the "Stardust Crusaders" arc, who despite being 67 still possesses a muscular physique due to the age-slowing effects of [[KiManipulation Ripple energy]]. This is set a few years after fathering [[HeroicBastard Josuke]], making his son younger than his grandson, Jotaro. However by Part 4 age has finally caught up with him, leaving him elderly and senile.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'': Big Boss, Old Snake, The Sorrow, and Big Mama ([[spoiler:older EVA]]) all can count as this. ''Especially'' Old Snake: The EstrogenBrigade went crazy when they saw his ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' appearance.

* VideoGame/MortalKombatX has [[CoolOldGuy Johnny Cage]]. Despite having some grey in his hair post the time skip, due to the improved animation and character modelling (for starters, the female faces are much better this time around), he arguably looks better than he did as a younger man in ''9''. An [[Funny/MortalKombatX argument]] even breaks out between his daughter [[SpinOffspring Cas]][[DaddysGirl sie]] and her best friend Jacqui in a [[DialogueTree match intro]] because of the latter noticing this.

[[folder:Real Life]]
Note: The following actors (and a few actresses) and other public figures are generally either cast in the role of the "good-looking older person with gray hair" roles or have attracted media attention for that look. Many if not most went gray before turning 50.

* Creator/AndersonCooper. Just ''Anderson Cooper''. Notable for the fact that he went completely gray at a rather young age--as of 2015, he isn't even ''50''. Amusingly, one episode of his talk show featured his mother showing some art a young Anderson had done -- in which he ''described himself'' as having grey hair already.
* There's no debating the fact that ''Creator/GeorgeClooney'' is sexier now than he was when he was in his 20s.
* Creator/HelenMirren is regarded as every bit as sexy now as she was thirty years ago - if not ''sexier''.
* The ultimate silver fox: ''Sir Creator/SeanConnery''.
* Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Russian baritone.
* Creator/ShaunMicallef is well-known for being a silver fox, much to the TV host's bemusement.
--> '''Micallef:''' "Silver fox? Is that good?"
* Tony Jones from [=ABC1=]'s Literature/QAndA and Lateline is actually called the "Silver Fox" on many a Monday night by the Twittersphere. [[http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/img/headshots/tony-jones.jpg]]
* Surely, ''Creator/HughLaurie'' counts as one.
* David Byrne of the TalkingHeads.
* Creator/SteveMartin, anyone?
* Creator/JohnSlattery, [[http://www.societyofjohns.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/John-Slattery-as-Roger-Sterling.jpg so]] [[http://img.poptower.com/pic-32268/john-slattery.jpg?d=1024 much]]. It helps that he's prematurely gray, making him substantially [[YoungerThanTheyLook Younger Than He Looks]]. (He was born in 1962.)
* [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lot97zzDtm1qbhi1ko1_400.jpg Janove Ottesen]], charismatic frontman of Music/KaizersOrchestra, seems to be heading this way. Not even 40 yet, but he's already proudly rocking the grey-haired look.
* Creator/AlanRickman definitely was one.
* Creator/RichardGere.
* Robert Wagner
* Creator/HarrisonFord
* Tim Gunn. Named one of People Magazine's "Sexiest Men Alive" in 2006.
* Creator/GoranVisnjic, playing 'Dragan Armansky' in the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, had silver hair, whether dyed or natural, though already good looking, managed to pull off the Silver Fox look well.
* Creator/JamieLeeCurtis; especially notable is that she's become quite a vocal opponent of Photoshopping and other forms of photo retouching, and manages to look damn good with only a pixie cut and a little bit of makeup.
* [[Creator/FoodNetwork Geoffrey Zakarian]].
* Bulgarian [[http://www.supersport.com/olympics/gymnastics/news/120729/Recordbreaker_Jovtchev_plays_down_chances Jordan Jovtchev]] is the first male gymnast to appear in six Olympic games, and at 39 and almost entirely grey he looks damn fine.
* Creator/PeterCapaldi is a charming Scottish silver fox.
* [[Series/MissionImpossible Peter Graves]]
* Creator/LeslieNielsen was certainly a handsome white-haired devil.
** Well, aside from the FanDisservice in ''ScaryMovie 3'' and TheNudifier.
* Ted Danson
* Craig Ferguson
* UsefulNotes/BillClinton
* UsefulNotes/JoeBiden
* [[Music/PinkFloyd Roger Waters]]. While quite horse-faced in his youth, he is looking increasingly like Richard Gere with age.
* Mark Harmon. He's a silver fox as Gibbs, but possibly even more so in real life. Wrowl!
* Jeff Chandler and Richard Bradford, both of whom started going gray as teenagers.
* Fifty years after Series/StarTrek and Nichelle Nichols is still pretty damned hot.
* Believe it or not, UsefulNotes/BorisYeltsin during the late 1980s - early 1990s, before he became an alcoholic EmptyShell of a man.
* [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Bob Barker]].
* Creator/MadsMikkelsen. He tends to dye his hair but it's actually gone completely silver.
* Paul Hollywood, whose astonishing presence you can experience in [[Series/TheGreatBritishBakeoff The Great British Bake Off]]. They call him The Silverback.
* Creator/PatrickStewart. [[BaldOfAwesome When he has hair]], that is.
* Creator/PaulNewman was already a heartthrob in his younger years, but arguably got even better with age.
* Several CountryMusic artists
** Gary Allan (born 1967) often places high on "Sexiest country bachelor" lists, probably because of his brooding nature and the occasional sexy song such as "Nothing On but the Radio" or "Hangover Tonight".
** Likewise with Music/DwightYoakam who, at age 58, was still #4 on ''Country Weekly'''s 2014 reader poll of sexiest bachelors for his similar brooding-ness.
** Much was made of Music/GeorgeStrait's attractiveness and easygoing charm even as he passed 50 and 60.
** Going back a few generations, Charlie Rich was actually nicknamed the "Silver Fox" because of this trope.
** Emmylou Harris, a female version of this trope.
* Music/BruceDickinson of Music/IronMaiden. 57 with grey hair and can still rock skinny jeans.
* Creator/JeremyIrons
* Creator/EdHarris
* [[http://ellensama.tumblr.com/post/81422804130/my-favorite-silver-fox-japanese-runway-model-is This gorgeous Japanese runway model]] who's often seen in Jotaro Saitou fashion shows.

* Roger Sterling from ''Series/MadMen'', played by John Slattery. The name might be a StealthPun. He's definitely intended to be young for a man with pure white hair; he served in the Navy in World War II and was apparently a small child in the 1920s, so he's no older than 45ish when the series starts in 1960.

* The protagonist of the KnownSpace story "Relics of Empire" had lost his fortune and become middle-aged before he recovered enough to afford [[ImmortalityInducer boosterspice]] again and regain his physical youth. He realized that he'd actually had more success with the ladies with some grey in his hair, and started dyeing it back in.
