Better with a beard

Every man looks better with a beard. Here's proof.

Chris Messina

That’s a mighty fine beard, Chris Messina.  Mighty fine.

Kevin Costner

Kevin Costner is looking so bad-ass here, I’m tempted to start up Better With a Pipe.

Chris Pine

He could lose the neck scruff, but aside from that?  Come on.  No contest.

Jim Carrey

You wouldn’t think so since he’s almost never bearded, but Jim Carrey can grow a mean beard. 

Kurt Russell

When Jackie C. wrote me to suggest Kurt Russell, I was sure I had already featured him.  Kurt Russell’s beard in The Thing is arguably the greatest cinematic beard of all time.  Clearly, this post is long overdue.

Ryan Gosling

No contest.  Not that Ryan Gosling looks bad without the beard, but just as bacon can enhance any food, so too can a beard enhance any face.

Martin Freeman

Martin Freeman (who can currently be seen beardless as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit) doesn’t have the most impressive beard, but it is still a beard, and he looks better with it.

Bruce Willis

I randomly decided to type “Bruce Willis beard” into Google, thinking I’d come up empty - lo and behold, there was Bruce Willis with a surprisingly voluminous beard. Good times.
