10+ Celebrities Who Take Their Dreaminess To A Whole New Level With A Beard

All my life, I've always been fascinated by men who have this innate masculine ability to grow a thick beard — probably because I can't grow one myself.

There's just something about beards that the majority of us find irresistible. That's why I've compiled these 10+ celebrities who take their hotness to a whole new level with a beard

John Krasinski.

If you ask me, I don't think John Krasinski had any other choice but to grow a beard for his role as Jack Ryan.

If he had kept the clean-shaven look, all we would have been able to see is Jim Halpert.


Baby Drake, meet man-Drake! Let me tell you, it wasn't easy to find a photo of Canada's favorite son sans-beard.

I think it's safe to say, on the whole, that we prefer our Drizzy to be grizzly.

Bradley Cooper.

Bradley Cooper without a beard looks precisely like the used car salesman who tried to sell me an extra set of keys with my vehicle purchase.

Give me the ruggedly handsome Bradley we saw in A Star Is Born any day of the week.

Tom Hardy.

There are those who should just never shave, not ever, and Tom Hardy is one of them.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was born with a 5 o'clock shadow, the way he's able to so effortlessly produce such a fantastic display of facial hair.

Donald Glover.


The clean-cut look was fine when Donald Glover was playing Troy Barnes on Community, but that was then and this is now.

If you ask me, I much prefer the beard. I'm a fan of Donald's long hair as well!

Ryan Hurst.

Here's a hot take for you: Ryan Hurst should never ever shave. He just looks...wrong.

I'm sorry if you're reading this, Ryan (I love you), but your face is much more handsome under that incredible mane you call a beard.

Charlie Hunnam.

Speaking of SOA alumni, I can still remember when Jax Teller used to rock the baby-face look.

Charlie Hunnam is a beautiful man, there's no denying that, but with a beard — he looks like a Norse god.

Jason Mamoa.

Jason Mamoa upset plenty of fans when he made the decision to shave his face. Lucky for us, Jason could probably grow a beard in under 45 minutes if you were to put a gun to his head.

Jake Gyllenhaal.

Oh my goodness, what a grin! If the image of Jake from Nightcrawler isn't enough to give you nightmares then nothing will.

I much prefer the rugged surfer look that Jake has been rocking these past few years.

Tim Allen.

We all know what it means when Tim Allen starts to grow his beard — The Santa Clause is coming to town!

Whenever I see Tim without his glorious snow-white beard, I just feel cheated. So I appreciate the early present he's gifted us.

Nick Offerman.

I think that Nick Offerman is actually two different people. There's the beardless wonder pictured on the left, and the whisky-dramming woodsman we've all come to know and love from shows like Parks and Recreation.

Could Nick have a twin brother and just be trolling us all?

Chris Hemsworth

It doesn't really matter what Chris Hemsworth does or doesn't do. Beard or no beard, he still looks as if Michelangelo sculpted him from a block of marble.

But if I get to choose, give me the beard.

Chris Evans.

I know it goes against canon and plenty of purists weren't particularly pleased to see Captain America rocking a beard.

To those few, I say you can't see the forest for the trees. Chris Evans with a beard is pure perfection.

Keanu Reeves.

Here's a question that's sure to spark debate: who would win in a fight between Neo and John Wick?

My money is on Wick, solely because he has a beard and Neo does not. I know that isn't sound logic but frankly, I don't care.

Zac Efron.

If you're looking for something to make you forget that Zac Efron was a High School Musical star, just watch his latest Netflix series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron.

It's a total gamechanger as far as our perception of him is concerned.

Liam Hemsworth.

Lionsgate / @liamhemsworth

A little facial hair can work wonders for a man's confidence. It's clearly helped Liam to unwind.

I wonder how many bottles of beer he's got packed into that handy little cooler hanging off his shoulder? Beer me, Liam!

Henry Cavill.

@henrycavill / Warner Bros.

Sure, Henry Cavill would still be handsome in the pitch dark. But doesn't he look more — what's the word... "super" when he's rocking a full beard?

It's a powerful look. I'd go as far as to say that it's even more powerful than a locomotive.

Ben Affleck.

Warner Bros. / Warner Bros.

Batman deserves a beard, I'm just going to come right out and say it. Hopefully, we'll be seeing a grizzly Bruce Wayne in the forthcoming Snyder Cut version of Justice League.

I didn't think I'd be a fan of a salt-and-peppered Bruce Wayne, but it works.

Christian Bale.

Lionsgate / Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures

When Christian sports a smooth baby-face, it kind of makes him look like an American Psycho.

I much prefer to see him with a full beard or even a small goatee with an awe-inspiring mustache, like the one we see in Hostiles.

Ryan Reynolds.

@vancityreynolds / MGM

Ryan is always scruffy to some degree. But it's when he decides to go from having a 5 o'clock shadow to sporting a full Paul Bunyan beard that his manly stature really shines through.

I loved his look in The Amityville Horror.

Jared Leto.

@jaredleto / @jaredleto

The Jared on the left looks like he's about to sell you some weed out of his backpack.

Whereas Jared on the right looks like he just came in after a lengthy conversation with Mother Nature herself. Which one would you want knocking at your door?

Idris Elba.

NBC / @idriselba

"Miner? I hardly know her!"

That quote will never get old. Unlike Charles Miner's tenure at Dunder Mifflin, which became as stale as old bread. I much prefer Idris when he's not in Scranton, and when he's letting his white beard grow out.

Robert Pattinson.

Warner Bros. / Amazon Studios

Do not sleep on Robert Pattinson. This young man just might be the next Daniel Day-Lewis.

Looking at these images side-by-side, you'd swear that it was two different people. Yes, Robert's beard may be a bit untamed, but that's fixable.

Brad Pitt.

Universal Pictures / Sony Pictures

Very seldom does Brad Pitt sport a beard on-camera, which is an absolute shame. If any man alive looks better with a beard, it's him.

The closest we ever came to seeing the full force of Brad's facial folic was in Snatch.

Hugh Jackman.

@thehughjackman / 20th Century Fox

There's something about Hugh's beard that makes you just want to rub your hands through it. Don't lie to yourself, it was the first thought that popped into your head.

At least, it was the first thought that popped into mine...

Jeffrey Dean Morgan


Television has a long and infamous list of incredible villains. But if we were to put pen to paper and try and think of the vilest SOB to ever grace the small screen, it would have to be Negan.

Somehow, with a beard, he looks even more evil, while Jeffrey looks dreamier.

Chris Pratt.

@prattprattpratt / NBC

Whenever I shave, I always get this look of disappointment from my significant other. She assures me it isn't that she dislikes my face, it's that she believes I look much better with a full beard.

In a similar vein, I don't dislike Chris' face, I just think he looks much much better with a beard.

Aaron Paul.

AMC / @aaronpaul

Aaron Paul has kind of become the gold standard in the world of beard fashion. In fact, my barber tells me that on the regular his customers still request to have "the Jesse Pinkman look."

I can't say that I blame them.

Jon Hamm.

AMC / Netflix

Let me be clear, I'm not advocating that Jon Hamm pick out his beard every day. I'm simply saying that there is a time and a place for everything.

Also, is it weird that I'd rather hang out with Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne than Don Draper?

Jason Statham.

Sony Pictures / @jasonstatham

A fully clean-shaven image of Jason Statham doesn't exist on this planet. Do you remember the scene in The Santa Clause when Scott shaves and it just immediately grows right back?

That really happens every time Jason Statham picks up a razor.

Joe Manganiello

@joemanganiello / @joemanganiello

The image of Joe on the right looks like he had an incredible night. Everyone knows there's no hangover cure like sunshine, coffee, and puppies.

I absolutely adore the fully white beard. Joe is going to make one hell of a Deathstroke in the revamped Justice League.
