It also happens to women, but much more often to VIP men: over the years, they become more beautiful. There are those who have always been a sex symbol, while others have become one over time. After all, with maturity also comes the awareness that (in addition to bringing advice for work choices) it can also benefit the physical aspect.
Finding your style, the perfect haircut, the right beard length, the best sport to maintain your body. These are all things that can make a difference, so much so that many VIPs get better as they get older. For some of them it seems that the hands have stopped, while for others the silver hair and some wrinkles have given a charm that perhaps was not so marked before. Whether it’s local actors or Hollywood stars, the recipe is always the same: let time take its course, learning to enhance style and strengths.
