Black Don’t Crack: Men Who Don't Look Their Age

March 1st, 2012 - By Editor MN/Kcool Editor

We often highlighted the Black women and celebrities who don't look their age, but now, it’s time to highlight the men. Although us men do look better with age, some don’t seem to age very much at all. You’d probably never guess the real age of many of the following male celebs:

http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/prince1309_468x466.jpg

Prince

Age:53

Now we know he don’t look like nobody’s daddy.

Pharrell Williams

Age: 38

His baby face would’ve made us guess he was 30 at best.

"Q-Tip"Q-Tip

Age: 41

The Tribe Called Quest leader is seriously ageless. Maybe it’s the fact that he’s been involved in his passion of music making (and getting paid to do it) since he was 18.

Chris Rock

Age: 47

It’s hard to believe that the funniest comedian in the game has been around for so long. He looks about 15 years younger than his real age of 47.

John Starks

Age: 46

You may not know the feisty former NBA player who used to keep it raw and exciting as part of the New York Knicks. Today he works in the front office but doesn’t seem to have aged much in his post-professional career.

Marlon Wayans

Age: 39

It seems like yesterday that Marlon Wayans was the baby of the large Wayans clan (he’s the last of 10 kids) but he’s nearly 40 himself although he doesn’t look a day over 32.

There's often a fair amount of white ancestry in the black that's not "cracking." If we were to flip it and say black people look way older than whites their age, some folks on the Org would have coniptions. I know some black men who have always looked way older than their ages. And, I know of some white celebrities who look way younger than their ages. (Johnny Depp and Sting spring to mind.)

shrug

After a while, the myths get old.

Honestly...being that I'm mixed with black [or "African American" for the politically correct], I actually can see some people of different races being offended by this type of thread lol .....real talk.

In my opinion, regarding famous/Hollywood people, all men except for William Shatner and Harry Belafonte look a lot older than they are, so I don't agree with this racial stereotype either.

The last years in my life have been really rough, but until I turned 40 I always looked 10 years younger than I was and I am white and extremely pale. My mom is pale too and 81 and hardly has any wrinkles. So the rule the darker the skin the less you age is not true. But it's true that some black people age very well, but not all do. I still think that there is probably a higher percentage of blacks that look younger than whites who do, but IMO that has a lot to do with whites not protecting their skin from the sun enough.

Having said that there is nothing wrong with celebrating hot black men biggrin . A good example of a black man who looks nothing his age is that one American idol contestant who was 59:

With a very special thank you to Tina: Is hammer already absolute, how much some people verändern...ICH hope is never so I will be! And if, then I hope that I would then have wen in my environment who joins me in the A....

All these men and nobody has mentioned this handsome male specimen yet who could get it anytime, anyplace?

Just for the record, not to jack the thread, I think there are men who just don't crack period, despite race:

Johnny don't look a day over 35 even though the man is pushing 50:

Brad Pitt...another pushing 50 but just as fine as he was back in the day:

Say what you will about his acting, but I've always been a fan of Tom Cruise:

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

Totally, and so do all the other men in this thread. I see "cracks" in all of them (even though, I think some of them are still really hot!).

Most people these days do look younger than a generation ago looked at their age. People take better care of themselves in general.

(And "not having a grandmother" is an expression we use in Spain when someone flatters himself.

Grandmas are supposed to flatter their grandchildren lol )

I always ask younger people who say someone over 50 doesn't look his/her age, "Really? What does 50 look like?"

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Okay..thats it....go make your own "white don't crack thread"..
And everyone will be happy

Second,to the person that calls it a "myth" and that white mixture might have something to do with it? Its been acknowledged for years that melanin levels in black are high and they in fact age differently.

I think ABC's 20/20 just did a report on that ..

Next time you go to your dermatologist to check for your cancer spots?., ask him

Yeah, it's common knowledge that people with more melanin are better protected from sun damage, hence why so many black people look younger than their age. I'm 30 and white and I look 40! I'm really pale, which is my natural skin color, but the damage that comes along with it is no fun.
