PHOTOS: Geraldo Rivera And Other Men Of A Certain Age Not Ashamed To Show Some Skin


When the world stopped spinning yesterday, we first thought it was just our typical Sunday hangover finally coming to a halt. But we quickly learned that it was veteran newsman Geraldo Rivera who temporarily knocked Earth off its axis because he had something to share with the world. At this time, we’re still unsure why Rivera decided to share (or over-share, depending on your take) a selfie in his bathroom mirror with nary a stitch on his person, just a strategically-placed towel for modesty’s sake. His message the accompanied the photo (“70 is the new 50. Erica and family are going to be so pissed…but at my age…”) indicates justifiable pride in this slim torso. Rivera has since deleted the photo, saying “Note to self: no tweeting after 1 am.” Fair enough. But, deleted or not, it’s too late, because the now-infamous shot already had us meditating about other men of a certain age who aren’t afraid to show a little skin. In no particular order, here are some male celebs over 50 who aren’t afraid to show off what their mamas gave them (well, gave them 50 or more years ago), but still… Rock on, gents!

Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy 

Looking sufficiently pensive (and properly posed?) 52-year-old funnyman Murphy has a lot more going on under those pesky clothes than we we ever realized.

Sean Penn

Sean Penn

This Oscar winner (52) is not afraid to strut his buff at the beach. Can you blame him?


Liam Neeson

You gotta respect a man who will take it off for a cause! Liam (61) stripped into his skivvies on Ellen to raise money for breast cancer awareness.


Sylvester Stallone

The across-decades action hero and multi-hyphenate star keeps fit for filming (Expendables 2) at the ripe and ripped age of 67.

 Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks

Sure the multiple Oscar winner (57) only gives us a taste of what’s cooking sans clothing, but sometimes it’s the tease that’s sexiest, Tom.



John Stamos

Uncle Jesse (he probably loathes that we still think of him in that way) turns 50 in just a few weeks and we’re still swooning like teenage girls.


Marc Jacobs

The fashion designer lost a boatload of lbs. back in 2006, and now he’s never shy about flaunting his fit-at-50 bod in skimpy swimsuits at beaches ‘round the globe.


Barck Obama

We salute you, Mr. President (52 next month), for keeping it classy when you vacay.


Simon Cowell

We’ve grown accustomed to seeing his chesticles’ silhouette in those tight black T’s, but  seeing Simon (53) shirtless brings it all into focus.

Jon Bon Jovi goes shirtless as he enjoys a day on the beach with wife Dorothea Hurley in St. Barths

Bon Jovi

Gone may be the days of his big hair glamour, but at 51 Bon Jovi can still rock our world.


Regis Philbin

The former talk show host and current octogenarian (he’ll be 82 next month, people!) flexes his guns and his smile and puts many of us younger guns to shame.

Tom Cruise

Tommy took it off for filming during Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and while we may not get his giddy-in-underwear dance moves of films past we’ll say things ain’t too shabby at 51.

    Ok,,, I won’t throw any names out. But two look like they are chemically enhanced. One looks like a pectoral implants gone wrong. One I thought what he would share was him being bisexual. And the others, in in their natural state. But I must say that at 82, Regis Philbin looks great.

  • tardis

    What a bizarre photo. It’s so out of character for Rivera. I mean…

  • hf2hvit

    Too much lipo in some photos…and NOT ENOUGH in a few others that shouldn’t have been.

  • hf2hvit

    @tardis: Not for a typical narcissistic bloviator…maybe Trump will be next with the visual Ipecac.

  • Will L

    There comes a time in every man’s life when he simply looks better with his clothes on. I wish you hadn’t shown me that picture of Tom Cruise. I may have trouble sleeping.

  • JT Hawkins

    @Will L: Thank you, Sir! I, for one, do not want to see our President shirtless. I blame the Papps.

  • Vince Smetana

    With all due respect, does Regis appear photoshopped to anyone else? If he’s not, more power to him!

  • Kangol

    Eddie Murphy looks great, as do Marc Jacobs and Jon Bon Jovi. I’ll give it to Regis for really looking great at 82. The President isn’t too bad either.

    But the rest…I mean, please, no thanks, especially with the obvious plastic surgery, implants, roid enhancements, etc. Not looking good at all.

  • MK Ultra

    Regis has a better body at 82 than some of the guys 30 years younger than him!

  • B Damion

    Awwww..let them be. They all look healthy and I only hope I can age as gracefully as this group of distinguished gentlemen.

    go gett’em daddy! lol…

  • mattsy

    Rivera is REVOLTING

  • fredo777

    If that’s not fake, props to Regis. He looks good.

  • philipj999

    @tardis: Since he works for Fox (Faux) News, nothing is too bizarre for him.

  • BigWoody

    Seeing the freakish manscaping of Simon Cowell’s tummy made me ill.

  • dcguys

    Interesting group. And speaking of the usual typos … “Barck Obama???” I realize this is a UK publication but some typos are kinda – well – very embarrassing. Please hire some qualified QA/copy review/QC/proof-reading people!!! Every article I’ve read here has had some unnecessary errors.

  • Mr-DJ

    Marc Jacobs!! Then Eddie Murphy, maybe the Prez. The rest of them no, although props to Regis. I’m 63 and I can far surpass most of them. OF course these are not “selfies” except Geraldo. That was just wrong. Did he look at it first? Marc Jacobs is the only one here allowed to post a selfie. IMHO.

  • stfallon1028

    Marc Jacobs is an adorably overgrown child-genius. Natasha Livingston meanwhile, is up in heaven wondering what the hell happened to her man since she’s been gone

  • Josh in OR

    Tom cruise looks like someone took a wad of Silly Putty and stuck Tom Cruise’s head on it…

    Craziness and transformation into silly putty. That’s what $cientology gets you…

  • J.c.

    As B Damion stated. They look great for their ages and are healthy talented and good people. Let them be and stop with the dissing queen routine.They should not be afraid to walk proudly and comfortably along a beach shirtless because some critical old fag had “its” panties in a bunch. (lol)

  • Oscar Raymundo

    The exclusion of Dylan McDermott on this list is a crime against humanity.
