25 Pics that prove celebs always look better with a beard

November may be the month of the mustache, but beards deserve our adoration all year long. I mean, really, have you ever met a man who doesn’t look even foxier with a beautiful beard? Just feast your eyes on these burly fellows.

Chris Pine

Dare we say Chris Pine’s beard is out of this world? ‘Cause, sweet Deep Space Nine, this man is a thing of beauty.

Aaron Paul

Aaron Paul certainly cleans up well, and we personally can’t imagine the Breaking Bad hunk without his well-manicured facial hair.

Adam Levine

Dear Adam Levine, if you ever decide again to experiment with your hair to dramatically alter your looks, please consider growing your beard back out and do not — we repeat, do not — go anywhere near a box of peroxide.

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper with a beard is almost as cute as Bradley Cooper voicing a rageaholic, bounty-hunting raccoon. Almost.

Those freckles! Those lashes! That smile! There is nothing common about Common’s beautiful bearded face.

Chris Evans

Chris Evans has played clean-shaven Captain America in so many movies now, we almost forgot how sexy he looks with some facial scruff.

Henry Cavill

Speaking of superheroes, Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill looks so hunky with a beard it makes us weak in the knees. Cavill’s beard = Kryptonite?

David Beckham

Let’s be honest… it wouldn’t matter if David Beckham didn’t have a single hair on his head or face — he’d still be one of the finest example of the male form in existence. Still, we are quite partial to his expertly styled facial hair.

Jamie Dornan

Yep. We’re officially jealous of Dakota Johnson right now for getting to cozy up to Jamie Dornan (bearded or otherwise).

Jesse Metcalfe

Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe doesn’t need much help in the sex-appeal department, but a beard sure does seem to elevate this hunk’s, well, hunkiness.

Ryan Gosling

New father though he may be, we can’t help but pine over bearded Ryan Gosling. Eva Mendes is one lucky lady, eh?

Lee Pace

We have been head over heels for Lee Pace since his adorable (and far too short) turn as Ned in the underrated series Pushing Daisies. We couldn’t be happier to see Pace land major roles like Ronan in Guardians of the Galaxy and Thranduil in The Hobbit trilogy… especially if it means he shows up on red carpets sporting this foxy beard.

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman is a man of many talents. One of those, it would seem, is rocking a beard. I mean, need we remind you of his rad facial hair as Wolverine?

George Clooney

George Clooney… What more is there to say?

Chris Hemsworth

It only seems right that Chris Hemsworth would sport a manly beard. Because, Thor. And The Huntsman. And all 6 feet 3 inches of rugged, libido-spiking beefcake that he is in general.

Jeff Bridges

Young Hollywooders take note — if you need an example of how to wear a beard well, look no further than the ever-handsome Jeff Bridges. This silver-bearded stud still makes us swoon.

Robert Pattinson

Photo credit:

We are loving the changes we’re seeing in Robert Pattinson these days — his quirky interviews, his low-key love affair with FKA Twigs and, naturally, his spectacularly patchy facial hair.

Ryan Reynolds

We don’t want to put words in Blake Lively’s mouth, but we’re pretty sure Ryan Reynolds’ beard may have had something to do with the situation she’s got going on south of the sternum right now.

Jared Leto

Not many men can pull off long locks (especially ones that are prettier than ours) and a beard, but Jared Leto works ’em like a boss. Jordan Catalano has never looked better.

Justin Timberlake

Whether he’s wearing a suit and tie or jeans and a tee, Justin Timberlake looks even better with a beard (we know… who knew he could get any better?).

Zac Efron

You know what we especially love about Zac Efron sporting a beard? It makes him look old enough that we can pretend we aren’t total creepers for having crushed on him since he was, like, in high school.

Idris Elba

Photo credit:

Luther actor Idris Elba has a whole slew of movies set for release in the next year or so, and we cannot wait to catch this glorious, bearded guy on-screen every chance we get.

Jon Hamm

Photo credit:

Mad Men may be over, but we’re still mad about Jon Hamm. Just look at him — specs and a beard? Yep, we’re on board with this look.

Tom Hardy

Photo credit: Daniel Deme/

Oh, Tom Hardy. How we adore thee. This beard needs to be a permanent fixture on your chiseled face.

Viggo Mortensen

Some might say we saved the best for last… and we might be inclined to agree with them. Viggo Mortensen’s beard is so manly it makes us want to march into a Middle Earth battle by his side.
