22 Silver Fox Actors: Are They Hotter Today Or In Their Heyday?

Older. Wiser. Zaddy-er.

You know how wine and cheese get better with age? Well, for a lot of actors, the same is true.

But with wine, cheese, and even actors, it's all a matter of taste. So I need to know if you prefer these leading men as silver foxes or if you were more into them when they were young stallions.

And before we get started, it should be noted that all of these men are attractive no matter their age, and this is all in good fun! :) Here we go!

1. First up, here's Pierce Brosnan in his silver fox era:

And now here he is as babyface Brosnan:

Who will win?

7. I hate to do this to you, I really do, but Oscar Isaac is next. Here he is giving daddy vibes:

On the red carpet in a turtleneck

And here he is looking like a lil' baby coffee shop poet:
