At Age 73, Tom Selleck Is Still Looking Sharp. What's His Secret? The Magnificent Mustache And Something Else

Date June 20, 2018

Three decades have passed since the last episode of Magnum, P.I. went on the air, but the show’s lead, Tom Selleck, still looks strikingly handsome. You may wonder, what’s the actor’s secret?

 Well, he is in a happy and lasting marriage to the woman he loves, and that may have to do with his good looks. But another thing that makes him so attractive is so obvious we don’t even need to mention it: his iconic mustache.

How Tom met Jillie

Tom was filming in London when he met his future wife Jillie. She played in a hit musical Cats, and when Tom saw her, he was absolutely smitten. The couple fell in love and started living together in Hawaii, where Selleck was filming Magnum, P.I.

A few years later, in 1987, Tom and Jillie tied the knot in a private ceremony at a wedding chapel in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. One year after that, Jillie gave birth to their daughter, Hannah.


After Hannah was born, Tom decided he wanted to devote more time to his family. So he downshifted: the family bought a ranch in Ventura County, California, and Tom quit Magnum, P.I.

In 2012, the actor told People:

I quit Magnum to have a family. It took a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me do that.


Being a family man is more important to Selleck than being a successful actor. This is part of the reason why his marriage to Jillie is still rock-solid. As we all know by now, marital bliss is one of the keys to lasting emotional and physical well-being. No wonder Selleck and his wife look so great!

Tom Selleck’s iconic mustache

Can you imagine Tom Selleck without a mustache? The neat ‘stache is an integral part of the actor’s image; this feature is so indispensable that Selleck is prohibited from shaving it off! His Blue Bloods contract obliges him to keep themustachee intact.


If you want to get the same 80’s macho look, you have to be lucky to grow enough hair on your upper lip. As Selleck himself commented about his moustache:

Part of that's genetic. You either got it or you don't.
