Best & Worst Celebrity Beards

September 5, 2010

You asked for it, so we are giving it to you! Find our list of the best, and the worst celebrity beards below.

George Clooney BeardBrad Pitt Beard

Some celebs are meant to wear a beard, while others are better off leaving their face smooth like a baby’s bottom… Yes, we’re talking about you J. Lo! Stop shaving that thing! It only makes it grow in thicker. You have to get it waxed if you want to avoid that nasty stubble… So to celebrate all that is famous facial hair, we’ve compiled a list of celebrity beards.

Best celebrity beards in no particular order:

George Clooney – Georgie boy is one of the few actors that looks just as good with a beard, if not better, than he does without one. Kudos goes to his mama for making a son with such a beard worthy face!

Danny Masterson – As his whiskers grew longer ‘That 70’s Show’ became more boring, but his face became more distinguished. This beard has our stamp of approval.

Zack Galifianaki – Hands down looks better with facial hair, and he knows it. That’s probably why after he shaved it off he sported a fake beard during Vampire Weekends performance when he hosted SNL.

Jeff Bridges – There’s even a Facebook group called ‘When I Die I Want My Ashes Scattered In Jeff Bridges Beard.’ What other celebrity could boast such an honor?

Robert Pattinson – If I was a vampire I would stay clean-shaven. It’s such a pain in the *ss to get blood out of your facial hair, but a little stubble every now and again never hurt anybody.

Worst celebrity beards in no particular order:

Tobey MaGuire – Did Spiderman turn into Tarantulaman?

Jim Carey – We love Jim, but hate his beard! This guy made a career from his elastic facial expressions. Why cover up 60 % of your moneymaker man?

Brad Pitt – He looks young for his age without one, but with one he miraculously ages 10 years. We say keep it clean Brad.

Chris Robinson – He said that Taylor Swift sucks, and depending on who you talk to he’s right, but I’d rather endure listening to one of Swifts entire albums than be within 5-feet of this guys beard. Who knows what kinds of terrifying creatures live in there?

Joaquin Phoenix – Kind of had the creepy Charles Manson thing going on. Need I say more?

Readers, make your own list of fantastic and not so fantastic celebrity beards in the comment section.

    This is a great post! Very creative – I guess I dont think about beards often enough to think who has the best and worst but now that you got me thinking – you are dead on. Joaquin finally shaved that sucker BTW – much better!

    Brad and Joaquin take the worst hands down but I for one don’t like beards at all even if you are as hot as George Clooney.

    George Clooney might be the only on this list that can wear the beard proudly, he looks insane

    It’s really too bad about Joaquin Phoenix. He was/is a stellar actor, the last year or so he just seems to be short a few marbles.
