A friend once said to me:
"There's nothing more manly than a proper weather-beaten face, I can't wait to have a face that's been battered by the elements."


It made me realise that I couldn't agree more. There's nothing more distinguishing and reflective of age, wisdom and achievement than an old man's face beset with wrinkles. A face that's seen a thousand sunsets.

Christopher Walken doesn't really fit... compared to the other thousand sunsets faces, his seems like a bowl of porridge or something white and mushy.
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Nov 20 7:26
I'm not sure what Walken picture you had up before; but this one seems to fit the them pretty well - http://www.listal.com/viewimage/863524

Good detective work on hunting down these photographs!
Posted: 5 years ago at Apr 7 15:38
You might want to try a different title for this list
1,000 sunsets is about 3 years
Posted: 5 years ago at Apr 7 15:41
nice selection of photos
It's interesting to see the variation in what is considered "black and white" look, for instance, how blue the tommy lee and christopher Lloyd photos are
wonder if it was intentionally left with a coloured hue
Posted: 5 years ago at Apr 16 2:53
These are pretty awesome photos. I especially like the first one. I've found a company that makes decals of cool photos at [Link removed - login to see], I'll bet some of these would turn out excellent!

I love coming back to this list. Classics!

How about Hopper?

If you're an internet hero about to post, thinking you're the first person to recognise that 1000 days equates to roughly three years, then step away from the keyboard, cover yourself in gasoline and swallow a lit match.

There is a difference in being alive while three years worth of sunsets have occurred, and actually having WATCHED 1000 sunsets.
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at Apr 27 19:36
Mate, apparently a thousand sunsets is only 3 years!

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE!!!

Where's David Jason??

ahhh superb! Your comment about the "1000" suns thing cracked me up hahaha
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Oct 2 2:30
maybe the only actors that have not given into the hype that you have to be young and beautiful to work in Hollywood. Dig a little deeper people these are real people that have not given into plastic surgery or botox
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Oct 2 4:47
wow. alan rickman the hottest one.
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Oct 10 12:40
Thanks for putting these together. I would have gone the rest of my life never once suspecting that Jean-Claude Van Damme is a real-life human being. Great work!
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Dec 29 18:18
i like their wrinkles so much !!!
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Dec 30 8:47
The black and white photos really make their wrinkles contrast their skin, which makes them look older. Quite the cool list, gotta love Eastwood.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Feb 14 6:22
I'm not sure I know of suitable images but Scott Glenn, Lance Henriksen and Paul Hogan come to mind as options.
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at May 27 21:41
Nice list, and nice election of pics (the black and white are the better ones).
I suggest Liam Neeson http://www.listal.com/viewimage/1781609
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Sep 4 16:52
I like these as candidates:
Jeff Bridges;
Morgan Freeman;
Paul Newman;
Michael Caine;
Ridley Scott;

Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Nov 16 7:55
This is a great set of photos. I think Charles Bronson should be included. He was one of the first 'Handsome Uglies'. He had the weather-beaten face even when he was young.

Robert Redford, Richard Boone, Nick Nolte, Willie Nelson
