The 22 Most Badass Beards In Cinema | The
The "Saddam"

Man behind the beard: George Clooney.
Film: Syriana (2005)
Character played: Bob Barnes
Real or fake? Real

Perhaps the most wonderful thing about Clooney’s beard in Syriana is the ever-so-reassuring wispy white hairs that poke out of it every so often. It’s these white hairs that help us mortals know that yes, yes indeed, George Clooney may well be human. Sure, he’s handsome, rich, powerful, nice and funny... but there are white hairs in his beard, and that makes him flawed. And distinguished. And somehow more handsome. Damn it.

Wait, no. When you squint he looks a bit like trial-period Saddam Hussein. Phew. All better now.

Aah sincere apologies, I've only just noticed the date on this thing. Cheeky Ali directing me to an old feature to distract me from The Fassbender. More

2 No Seneca Crane?!
Is it too groomed for you and therefore deemed inadequately manly? There is nothing more badass than a man who takes care of his facial hair well. More

3 The "Cap'n Jack"
The "Cap'n Jack" beard is fake. One the behind the scenes of the film is partly Johnny Depp in the make-up chair saying that the majority of the beard is fake because he can't grow his own! :) More
