Whether they like it or not, most people will have gray hair at some point in their lives. Instead of trying to run away from something that you can’t change, why not embrace it? That’s what these stars are doing. Please take a look at these celebrities embracing their iconic “silver fox” appearances.
Before shows like ER, Gravity, and Ocean’s Eleven, George Clooney had a head full of dark brown curls, a look that he rocked. The term silver fox was pretty much invented for George Clooney because of his impressive look, even with the gray hair. He started embracing his graying hair when he first started his movie career; ever since then, it has been his signature style.
We first got to know Matt LeBlanc while he was on the television series Friends, where he had his signature dark hair while starring as Joey Tribbiani. What many viewers didn’t know was that Matt had been dying his hair. He mentioned that he started getting gray hair on the sides and began to dye it around the second season of Friends. He began to fully embrace his gray hair after his spinoff Joey was canceled.
In the ’80s, Patrick Dempsey was known for having thick brown hair. As he was cast as one of the stars on Grey’s Anatomy, he stole viewers’ hearts playing the role of Derek Shepherd, a.k.a. McDreamy. During those ten seasons, Dempsey’s hair had started to get more and more grayer. Now, he is rocking a sort of salt and pepper look.
Back when Morgan Freeman started in this movie industry in the ’80s, he had pretty much the same haircut and facial hair that he has today. However, now, the actor’s hair is entirely gray, and it is a style that suits him.
Tom Hanks had naturally brown and curly hair years ago, but he has been graying slowly for years now. In 2019, he debuted his new beard on the red carpet of the Governors Awards, which showed off his all gray look. Gray hair and a gray beard, not a bad look for Tom Hanks.
