The 22 Most Badass Beards In Cinema | The Beard With No Name
The Beard With No Name

Man behind the beard: Clint Eastwood.
Film: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1967)
Character played: Blondie
Real or fake? Real

The majority of beards seen in this uber-manly list of facial topiary have been notable for their size, and that’s perfectly understandable. But as our man Clint proves, size isn’t everything.

Chewing on his cheroot, glowering from under his Stetson, The Man With No Name (or Blondie, or whatever you call him) boasts a beard that’s so aggressively grizzled that, were you to touch it, you’d cut yourself. It’s human steel wool, we swear it. You see, though Clint’s beard may not the biggest in the world, but it’s definitely one of the baddest. You know, not ‘bad meaning bad’ but ‘bad meaning good’. See Run DMC for details.

1 Re: No Seneca Crane?!
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
