I’m at that awkward age when both 18-year-olds and 40-year-olds seem attractive me. I wanna make out with Justin Bieber, and make babies with George Clooney. But young men get enough attention here at MTV Act, so today is for the grown and sexy! These are the men we hope our fave young men grow up to be. We’re talking to you Bieber and One Directioners! And you too, Channing Tatum!
+ Jon Hamm
“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm drives me mad! He makes me wanna get off that Destiny’s Child “Independent Woman” ish, quit my day job, and bake pies for my hubbie all day. Jon, Jordin Sparks, Ellen DeGeneres, and a gang of other celebs recently recorded a cover of The Beatles‘ “Hey Jude” to raise awareness for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
+ George Clooney
George Clooney is the original silver fox. And I’m pretty sure he’s been 50 his entire life. George became a United Nations Messenger of Peace back in ’08. In addition to seducing younger women, he uses his fame to bring attention to important international issues like the above war crimes in Sudan.
+ Johnny Depp
Can you believe Johnny Depp is 49?! Still, he can put his scissor hands on me any day! The one-of-a-kind actor recently worked his guitar at the Los Angeles Petty Fest. The Tom Petty tribute festival donated 100% of proceeds to Sweet Relief and musicians displaced by Hurricane Sandy.
+ Will Smith
I hate that Will Smith is considered a grown man, because it means I’m getting old, too. One way to stay young is to drink a lot of water, and Will and his family are huge supporters of charity: water — an organization that brings clean water to people in need all around the world. In 2011, birthday donations from Will’s fans helped build two water drills in a village in Ethiopia!
+ Denzel Washington
Denzel Washington‘s bad-ass movie roles will keep him young forever. When he’s not blowin’ stuff up, Denzel is the national spokesperson for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America — a position he’s held for 20 years! Denzel credits his hometown Boys & Girls Club with being a good influence on his life and career.
