When it comes to sex appeal, it seems age really is just a number. A survey by online marketplace OnBuy.com has found that former Bond girl Jane Seymour has been voted the sexiest female actor over 60 by the 3446 respondents, with Oscar winners Susan Sarandon and Jane Fonda second and third. Jeff Goldblum was voted the sexiest male actor over 60, followed by Viggo Mortenson, Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson.
Seymour received 26 per cent of the votes, ahead of Sarandon on 20 per cent and Fonda with 13 per cent. A quarter of respondents voted for Goldblum in the male category, with Mortenson receiving 18 per cent and Ford and Neeson picking up 12 per cent each.
In a somewhat creepier result, OnBuy.com found more than 7000 people Google ‘Helen Mirren nude’ every month. On that basis, it’s perhaps not surprising that Mirren was voted the fourth sexiest female actor over 60; she also had the highest number of Google searches a month of all the female actors analysed, with more than 15,000. By comparison, there are an average of 4840 suggestive Google searches a month involving Seymour – more than 2000 of which include the keyword ‘nude’.
However, none of the top four male actors voted the sexiest over 60 are the most searched, according to Google. That honour belongs to Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was voted the 10th sexiest but attracts an average of 1000-plus searches a month. More than 300 searches are for ‘nudes’ of Arnie, while a further 70 include the keyword ‘sex’. Goldblum accounts for just 390 sexy searches a month.
And before we go, we’ll leave you with this: when OnBuy.com delved into the sex lives of pensioners, it found fetishes such as BDSM, age play and group sex were favoured most by the over-60s. What an age we live in.
