Sometimes good facial hair can bring out a man’s eyes, his cheekbones, his jawline and, well, our, as women, most primitive desires for a scruffy, gruff looking man! Here are 15 famous men with the best facial hair.

Russell Crowe

Since Crowe already has a reputation for not being afraid to rough up paparazzi who get to close, the “I live in the woods…stay away from me” rugged beard works well for him.

John Legend

Legend naturally has a baby face, but for those times his songs lean towards the heartbroken and devastated, a little manly scruff does his face wonders.

Hugh Jackman

After doing the X-Men movies, there is only one way we want to see Jackman: as part wolf! So naturally, we love him a bit hairy.

Ice Cube

Ice Cube has stayed pretty loyal to his chinstrap and goatee, and he’s one of the few man who looks tough enough to wear it.

Ewan McGregor

We at first loved McGregor for his boyish looks, but then he broke out this manly beard that changed everything. And it frames that mischievous mouth of his perfectly.

Kanye West

We can’t decide if we genuinely like West’s facial hair, or if we just like that it covers up some of his smug face. Either way it’s working for him.

Gerard Butler

We like to imagine all Scottish men, with those irresistible accents, wear flannel that’s just a bit too tight and chop wood in the green, rolling Scottish hills. And Butler’s semi-red beard is just right for that image.

Usher

Usher is another singer blessed with a baby face, but add a little scruff to it and he’s the perfect combination of sultry and sweet.

James Purefoy

After starring in the hit series “The Following,” evil just becomes Purefoy. And so does a devilish beard.

Will Smith

Smith has always done a good job of having barely there facial hair that frames his face just right. And a mustache works on him somehow.

Jason Sudeikis

It’s hard to not look at the comedic actor and start cracking up, but his facial hair makes him look distinguished and handsome.

P Diddy

We’re not quite sure how Diddy pulls off the almost caricature chin patch, but we can’t imagine him without it now!

Zach Galifianakis

The comedian’s overgrown beard works perfectly with the disheveled, doesn’t-quite-have-it-together characters he tends to play.

Colin Farrell

He’s Irish. He’s supposed to be scruffy, plain and simple.

Gosling has experimented with a few different looks in the facial hair department and, as with everything, he pulls them all off.
