Trend Watch: Who has the best celebrity beard?

92337__dan_lThese days, celebrity beards are hottt! (Lip fuzz is, like, so five minutes ago.) Not just goatees or soul patches but the big bushy kind that rate somewhere between Abraham Lincoln and ZZ Top.

At USA Today’s Pop Candy blog, Whitney Matheson showcases some of the best of the current crop of chin-fuzz sporters, including Daniel Day-Lewis (pictured), Matisyahu, Michael Douglas, Zeke from Lost, and the guy from this creepy new Skittles ad. (Of course, I think Zeke should be disqualified, now that we know his beard is fake.)

Alas, Matheson fails to include George Clooney (in Syriana), Ewan McGregor (as Obi-Wan Kenobi), and Mel Gibson. Of the several beards pictured at Pop Candy, I’d say the best is, surprisingly, that of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch. It’s well-groomed, has a touch of gray, and makes MCA actually look distinguished.

Who’s your pick?

    George Clooney. Daniel Day Lewis looks like Daniel Day Poodle.

  • Tom Brazelton

    Mark Olliver Everet from the eels has a very nice beard. Samuel Beam (AKA Iron and Wine) also has a great indie beard.

  • V.M.L.

    Definitely Heath Ledger and Tobey McGuire.

  • Brennon

    Mel Gibson. His man-fuzz makes him look like Saddam Hussein.
