Anyhoo, we made a list of older famous male celebrities who are not too old for skinny jeans.





Billy Bob Thornton. He must be in his 50s (?) but he’s rocking the skinny. And it actually suits him too. His hair is quite interesting though. It’s good that he’s keeping it real by allowing it to go gray but it kinda looks like a big leggy spider about to attack his face. Hehe.
