When it comes to fashion, male celebrities don’t have a lot of options. Sure, they can spice up their ensemble with some brightly colored argyle socks, or maybe even a tasteful skinny tie – but the fun ends there. Or so we thought. In recent years, we’ve been noticing a lot of handsome men sporting not-so-handsome looks – and it’s thanks to the facial hair frenzy.
Good lord! That’s the most severe case of Dad ‘Stache we’ve ever seen! Will Ferrell was spotted at Art Basel in Miami this week, wearing what we can only assume is a costume for his upcoming role as a wise old fisherman. Or our uncle from Chicago. Our wise, old fisherman uncle from Chicago. Seeing as how the SNL alum is usually clean-shaven/the star of our elaborate Anchorman-themed fantasies, these photos go to show the devastation a bad mustache can bring to a celebrity’s handsome face. Ferrell obviously isn’t the only one to suffer a terrible lip rug, as our 10 Worst Celeb Mustaches can attest. Michael Cera? James Franco? Mickey Rourke? We don’t know why a line of hair can make so much of a difference, but it does. A terrible, terrible difference.

When we came across this picture of Shia LeBeouf hanging out with comedians Jim Gaffigan and Thomas Lennon, our minds came to a screeching halt. No, it wasn’t just because of the sheer randomness of the people gathered in the photo. It’s something much bigger, scragglier and grizzlier. We are of course talking about Shia’s beard, which has now officially reached epic proportions. Is he trying out for a part in Young Santa, the St. Nick biopic that we just made up right now? We hope, because we bet it would be Oscar bait. But truly the best part of his facial hair explosion is how he appears to have waxed the tip of his mustache. It definitely adds to that whole “dastardly but debonair villain” look. We get it, Shia, you’re not a kid anymore! But we’ll still always love Even Stevens.
