My Top Ten Celebrity Beards

I'm a tad tipsy, it's Sunday afternoon and I'm on a second glass of wine, I'm blogging about beards.

I love beards. I'm a feminist, I like that woman can do anything that men can do and vice versa - but obviously that is 'within reason' - biology makes us different and I love those differences. I like women to be 'feminine', soft, hair free, (also 'within reason') pretty, (I'm sorry but I do!). I like men to be rugged, manly, hairy (yes all over) muscular, and BEARDED. I love the beard.

So here is my top ten of sexy famous beards.

In at Number 10, Brad Pitt, now I'm not one of his crazed fans that adores his 'perfect good looks' but I admire his facial hair, it has a 'devil may care' attitude that I like, he wears it trimmed or wild and wild is good, no 'namby pamby' designer stubble for Brad, oh no, Angelina gets the full tickle.



At number 9, Johnny Depp, now I know his beard is very small, and maybe even puny , but it's still a bit 'rough and ready' and seriously, johnny Depp is under it! and imagine running your hands through his beard....mmmmm




at number 8, George Clooney - I've never been a huge George fan but he does have 'come to bed eyes' and he rocks a beard



at number 7, Sean Connery, yes yes I know he is a bad man and a mediocre actor but still his beard calls to me, that and hish schotish accent.....yes please Sean

at number 6.5, Tom Selleck, who slips in with a moustache to die for and awesome chest hair. Yes he looks like a 70s porn star, but I still would



at Number 6 I'm sneaking in the sneaky Rowan Atkinson, and the sneaky Blackadder, Suave, bearded and slightly evil



At Number 5,  Sendhil Ramamurthy, remember him in Heroes? oh yes! Lovely facial hair my friend.



and at number 4, Will Smith, yum yum, what's to say Will is lovely in every way and despite his daughter's awful song, I still love him, with a beard, even more so.



and at 3.5 (is this cheating?) Bruce Willis - sexy in stubble, and gorgeous in beard!




at Number 3, Aidan Turner, he is my dream man with out a beard, I almost faint when I see him with a beard....mmmmmmmmm





at Number 2, Hugh Jackman...I can barely speak....



and at Number 1, the KING of the BEARD, BRIAN BLESSED



How about you? Beard fan? or beard hater? why? Do leave a comment, and a link to any fabulous beards I missed from my list!! Thanks


PS I'm faint with excitement. The KING OF BEARDS himself has seen my post. 

If you are visiting because you saw the tweet I thank you. (and my twitter name is @tattooed_mummy sorry Mr Blessed)

  3. I'm just not convinced by full grown bushy beards, sorry! I like Will Smith's in those pics, and the first one of Bruce Willis. I prefer my hubby with some stubble than completely clean shaven :)

    I also love beards. My husband has only shaved his off once in all the years I've known him. Now we are both quite happy to let it reach deity proportions between trims!

  6. I just wet myself laughing when I saw Brian Blessed. I love that man. Not in the way you do, but he is a hero of mine. Wouldn't quite put him in the sexy bracket though. 2-10 I'll agree with you, faltering a bit on Rowan.

    "I grabbed her straight up the a*se! Right on the sphincter" - Brian Blessed

    1. Brian Blessed, you have to admit his beard is awesome though!! Rowan Atkinson no- but as slimey blackadder...well maybe - he does have a nice neat beard...

  9. I believe Aidan Turner should be first, because if you add in his voice, well he is just hot, hot, hot!

    ReplyDelete
  10. thing is, it's about the beard. No one can beat Brian Blessed. And while I freakin' adore Aidan....look at Hugh's body!! Go on, just look...then look at his wolverine face hair .......mmmmmmmmmmm. Aidan is awesome though, maybe they would consider a threesome...I'll ask

  11. Do have a little look at Jake Byers from Hayseed Dixie. He has a fine set of whiskers...and he let me run my fingers through them!

  12. I'm rather liking your choices here although I have to admit I am a bit upset that my favourite beard wearer is missing. The deliciously wordy Mr Scroobius Pip http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l5tarbDsI81qadg2a.jpg x x

  13. Clearly this thing is broken. I am not mentioned, not even once. Have you all gone insane?

  15. Really? Number 1 Brian Blessed? That make me chuckle :) My favourite is and has to be Bruce Willis! Love that guy but Hugh Jackman is quite cool too!

    I was with you *right* up until Brian Blessed - His beard may be just fine but I'd have s real problem with the rest of him.

    ReplyDelete
  17. *Snorts wine out of nose*. I love the way your mind works - and that you blog about the unusual. Personally, I'm just not getting the attraction to Hugh Jackman (millions of women are cursing my name right now!). I just don't.
    But I'm loving George and Will.
    And as a Benedict Cumberbatch fan (even though he's got a sh**e name!) may I suggest this little gem of him, sporting some sexy facial hair http://blogs.coventrytelegraph.net/thegeekfiles/2011/08/could-benedict-cumberbatch-be.html

  18. I'm definitely a lover of the beard, i occasionally have a crazy moment (usually in the summer) when i decided to shave mine off but then instantly regret it. Just wanted to say hi,congratulations and good luck on the BIB's I'm in the same category as you and thought i'd have a nose at the blog. good work.
    Hope your having a great evening.

  19. Mine might be at number 11 then...

  20. My best friend grew a beard, and he looked amazing.

    Then he shaved it off.

    And now I love him a little less.

    Maybe it will be back

  21. Ok, I am not convinced by Brian Blessed but Bruce Willis is probably my dream man... You haven't put Ben Affleck. I know he's not most people's cup of tea but with a beard he is heavenly, and super rugged!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I totally LOVE beards and am constantly trying to get my husband to grow one because it makes him look hot. I am also on a campaign to bring back men with chest hair, as I am sick of seeing these hairless pretty boys (Channing Tatum, anyone??). Bruce Willis is definitely my dream man, but Brian Blessed??? Can't see it! You have omitted Ben Affleck who has won me over with his facial hair. He looks hot and rugged and I SO would!
