The Sexiest Men in Hollywood With Beards
Men have different preferences when it comes to facial hair. Some are totally against it, while some are truly dedicated to growing their beards, moustaches, and goatees. While a clean-cut shave gives off that good-guy vibe that Hollywood adores, many celebrities opt to go for facial hair – whether it’s for preparation for a new role or just a personal preference. We have to admit that most celebrities can really pull off a full-on beard. Most of them have used their beards as trademarks. Some of these hot celebrities are even difficult to recognize without their iconic beards.
