That may be my personal taste, but most of men I found attractive were on their prime at their thirty-something, or even in their forties, while women where already down hill after 30.
Some exemples that comes to my mind now are Sean Connery, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Clint Eastwood and Paul Newman.
Of course, there are very hot women with more than 30. Penelope Cruz is as gorgeous as ever and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast as Tiffany's was 32 and was probably the most gorgeous woman ever at that film. Yet, most of women in my opinion were also on their prime in their twenties.
Do you agree? If so, why is the cause? Pregnancy? Too much makeup? Hormones? The society itself? Some other?

I think society has decided that typical older characteristics look better on men than on woman. We both get wrinkles, we both get gray hair, but in popular mainstream media, those men are still portrayed as valid romantic interests, while a woman of similar age simply won't be cast. Look up the gigantic age differences between leading men and their leading ladies, and the popular actresses that say they were told they were "too old" for a role alongside a similarly aged male. Not to say that this happens all the time, but it's definitely something to look at.0

No it comes down to genetics and life styles. Using hollywood actors is silly most guys do not look nearly as good as them at those ages. Plus most probably have had some work done. I could cite Christie Brinkley. She's in her 60s and she still looks like a model.
Some women age well some men age well. Just look at your parents. You'll probably age like they did.4
