It’s said that Hamm has to shave twice a day when Mad Men is in production in order to maintain Don Draper’s clean-cut look. Which explains why it doesn’t take long for the follicularly blessed actor to cultivate a dense thicket of facial hair like the one he showed off at an event in April.
”I always grow a beard over hiatus,” Radnor (seen here at a screening of his indie flick Liberal Arts in June) once told TV Guide. In 2008, the How I Met Your Mother star convinced producers to cast his vacation growth as a ”breakup beard” in the show’s season 3 premiere.
The Glee star told EW during a July Comic-Con interview, ”When you grow a beard, smells start happening.” I’ll take your word for it, Darren.
Call me crazy, but I have a hunch that Kutcher sends us messages through his hipster beard. He shaved it off for an episode of Two and a Half Men and soon signed on for another season. He began to grow it out as rumors circulated that he was prepping to play Steve Jobs. Now I’m just waiting for hipster beard to tell me what’s really going on between Kutcher and Mila Kunis.
He was on hiatus from The Big Bang Theory, but growing a beard was no vacation for Galecki. ”To have a full beard in July in Savannah is like…I honestly try to ignore it and not think about it because it really is horrendous,” the actor (who grew the scruff to play band manager Terry Ork in the punk rock pic CBGB) told reporters at Comic-Con. #famouspeopleproblems
Blond men can’t grow decent facial hair (exceptions: Ryan Gosling and Hulk Hogan) but I’ve got to give it to the Gossip Girl star for somehow willing his peach fuzz to ripen into a rugged scruff. At the U.K. premiere of What To Expect When You’re Expecting in May, Crawford’s muzzle even held its own against Rodrigo Santoro’s sexy stubble.
In June, the Modern Family Emmy winner attended the 2nd annual Critic’s Choice Television Awards with a well-manicured facial hairstyle that I’ve dubbed ”The Joe Manganiello.”
The Good Wife regular sported salt-and-pepper whiskers at a charity event in May. Was he attempting to shake his image as Sex and The City‘s Mr. Big by cultivating an Ernest Hemingway beard? I dub thee ”Big Papa.”
It’s impossible to dig up any information about Scott’s character in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, but judging from that precise Edwardian beard and lofty pompadour, I’m guessing he plays a super-villain that’s a cross between Sigmund Freud and Conan O’Brien.
The Psych star’s hiatus beard is legendary. Don’t believe me? Google the words ”Timothy Omundson” and ”beard.” Go on…I’ll wait….
