Single Celebrity Boomers" alt="Top 10: Hip & Hot Single Celebrity Boomers" align=center src="" _height="30" _width="28" /> 
Americans are obsessed with famous, picture perfect unions. Yet even celebrities with a fan base, don’t always have an easy time settling down. Being a single baby boomer can make it even harder. With busy schedules whose basics are not unlike our own: demanding job, children to raise, grocery shopping, laundry and car brakes that need replacing, overseeing a household alone isn’t easy. Having had the benefit of several life experiences, now is the perfect time to be fabulous on your own.

Take some tips from the ten celebrity boomers below, all of whom are hot, single and living life for one. These guys and gals really know how to “work it” and so can you.

George Clooney, 48
Spending time in Italy, zooming around on motorcycles, and his political activism in Darfur render a hipness that is more stunning than this aging actor’s gracefully aging silver mane. Given he was voted People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” (twice), there’s no denying he’s hot.

Hugh Grant, 49
This British-born actor knows how to make us laugh with his on-screen charm and humor. Most women think that his English accent makes him hip. The fact that he’s shared the silver screen with Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Renee Zellweger and Drew Barrymore makes him absolutely hot.

Mel Gibson, 53
Even with his bad behavior, there’s no denying the good looks and artistic talent of this Aussie-raised star. Dating a younger woman who will make him a self-described Octodad in a few months could make him hip for the moment but what will make him forever hot is if this recovering alcoholic stays sober long enough to enjoy it.

Chris Noth, 55
At 55, this single rock club owner and Sex and The City boomer still has women swooning. This actor has turned the fictional character Mr. Big into a hip mainstream term among single ladies seeking a good-looking, successful man. Rumor has it that the real-life hottie decided to shed the persona of being non-committal like his onscreen character and recently got engaged.

Sheryl Crowe, 47
This hip nine-time Grammy winner contributes a lot of her time to causes such as fighting global warming and breast cancer. A breast cancer survivor herself, she stays fit and beautiful by being an avid runner. Recently, Crow made a very hot transition by moving her two-year-old son Wyatt to a farm in Tennessee to give him a chance at a paparazzi-free life.

Sharon Stone, 51
This beauty spent her younger years modeling before she established herself as a brilliant actress. A brain aneurysm in 2001 caused her to re-evaluate her life and help educate others about strokes. She is a spokesperson for AIDS research among other causes. The single, hip and hot mommy-of-three was listed by People as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world.

Madonna, 51
This material girl gets an award for making whatever she does the newest hip thing, e.g. Kabbalah, yoga and, in the 80’s, her coned-shaped bras. Although her muscular arms have received their share of negative press lately, she’s no stranger to controversy and seems to make it through unscarred - - that’s what makes her hot.

Christie Brinkley, 55
This gorgeous Cover Girl still looks like she walked out of an issue of Sports Illustrated. She’s been unlucky in love (married four times, her last husband cheated on her with an 18-year-old) but it never seems to play havoc on her skin. This Supermodel is a hip mom, jewelry designer and animal rights activist.

Cher, 63
Cher is one of the sexiest long-lasting icons of our time. From the beginning of her days on television with Sonny to her shows at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, it’s hip to be Cher. Although her curves are always on fire, the hottest success for her has been her single, Believe. Just the title tells you why this star is still going strong.

Diane Keaton, 63
This actress is known for her natural good looks and hot Academy Award for Annie Hall. If the definition of hip means fashionably current, Keaton’s eccentric men’s wardrobe may seem just the opposite, were it not for the surge of women who began following her tomboyish style. While women actors her age complain that there’s no work, this hot little lady keeps landing roles.

Runners-up: Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Kurt Russell, and Goldie Hawn. Although these two couples (Susan and Tim; Kurt and Goldie) have never married they’ve been together longer than most of Hollywood’s ceremonial marriages. We would be pushing the envelope to consider these boomers single, even though all four of them are totally hip and hot.
