No, not that kind of beard (though that could be the subject of another post). Today, we’re celebrating some of the more memorable beards in historical film. Why? I dunno, why not?
Sam Heughan‘s crazy hermit beard in Season Three of Outlander
I am not personally a fan of the face hair, but it’s tres chic these days to look like you’ve spent seven years living in a cave in a Scottish forest, so bonnets off to Jamie for being on-trend.
Joseph Fiennes’ pretty-boy beard in Shakespeare in Love (1998)
Arguably, there are several noteworthy beards in this flick, but the fairest of them all belongs to Fiennes.
Patrick Stewart‘s leonine beard in The Lion in Winter (2003)
When all your sons are basically fuck-ups and your wife hates you … Grow a fabulous beard.
Tim Curry‘s piratey beard in Muppet Treasure Island (1996)
Everything about this beard gives zero fucks.
Daniel Day-Lewis‘ Academy Award-winning beard in Lincoln (2012)
You can’t take your eyes off this beard, it’s that good.
