8 Middle Age Stars That Personify Cool
1. The Wolf – Harvey Keitel
The way I see things, the way I see life, I see it as a struggle and there’s a great deal of reward I have gained coming to that understanding – that existence is a struggle. Is one of the many quotes of the American actor and producer Harvey Keitel born on may 13, 1939 to Miriam and harry Keitel in New York city of Brooklyn.
Harvey Keitel has appeared in so many films since he started in 1967 like; Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets , Taxi Driver, Ridley Scott’s The Duelists ,Thelma & Louise, Peter Yates’ Mother, Jugs & Speed, Quentin Tarantino’s and Reservoir Dogs to mention few. He is an Oscar and golden globe award nominee and presently the co president of the Actors Studio.
In Pulp Fiction Harvey Keitel plays Winston Wolfe, (also known as Mr. Wolfe and The Wolfe) a take no-nonsense cleaner (cleaner or fixer someone who comes in after an altercation or situation to clean it up leaving the appearance the incident never took place) that is called in by Los Angeles crime boss Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) to cover up the accidental murder of a Wallace informant committed henchman/assassin Vincent Vega (John Travolta).
Wolfe is the definition of cool, wearing a custom tuxedo, rocking an O.G. Gucci watch, driving an Acura NSX, and introducing himself by stating ,”I’m Mr. Wolf, I solve problems”.
Instructing henchman Vega and Jules, (Samuel L Jackson) Mr. Wolfe guides the team to a successful clean before rolling out to breakfast with a busty redhead.

2. Captain John Patrick Mason – Sean Connery
A writer once said “great are those who think great”, he probably was talking about retired Scottish actor and producer Sir Thomas Sean Connery who has won several awards including an Academy Award, three Golden Globes and two BAFTA awards.
Sean Connery was born on August 25, 1939 in Edinburgh, United Kingdom to Euphemia McBain and Joseph Connery. Connery is best known for his role as the original James Bond in the 007 saga James Bond. He starred in other projects including “Robin and Marian”, “The Name of the Rose”, “The Untouchables”, “Indiana Jones”, “The Last Crusade” and “The Hunt for Red October”.
In July 2000 Connery was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II after receiving a Kennedy Center Honors in the US in 1999. Connery was known as “The Rogue with the Brogue” and in 1989, at almost 60 years of age, he was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” But while his professional work is applauded, his personal choices have often come under fire. He once said “I’m not shy about voicing what I believe to be true”. He retired from acting in his 80s and as at 2013; he had his voice in the animated film Sir Billi. Most people have expressed their belief of his being more handsome now than when he was younger.
