Richard Gere vs. Paul McCartney – Who’s Really the Sexiest Man Over 60?

By Margaret Manning April 28, 2015 Lifestyle

When I asked the women in our Sixty and Me community to vote on this year’s “Sexiest Man Over 60,” Richard Gere emerged as the clear winner. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that the movie “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” had just released. But, whatever the reason, it was clear that the gals in our community loved Richard.

A few weeks later, I posted the same poll on Boomerly and got a very different result. Our community voted overwhelmingly for Paul McCartney. In fact, Richard dropped from 1st place, all the way down to 3rd. What happened? Did the Paul McCartney fan club all decide to rock the vote? Do women in their 60s prefer Richard Gere, while people in their 50s prefer Paul McCartney? I’d love to find out.

Please take a second to let us know who you think is sexier – Richard Gere or Paul McCartney.

Why did you vote the way that you did? What is your favorite Richard Gere film or Paul McCartney song? Please join the conversation.


Here’s a short video that I recorded on this topic. I hope you find it entertaining.
