Some use beards as a nose tweak to convention. Otherwise, it's a personal choice. I despise facial hair but I doubt anyone would care what I think...

Not this little girl.

And the subject is bushy beards. So if I hate bushy beards (and I do--bushy, or not) I don't give a fig if that cat-smeller is hanging on an old fossil like Letterman's mug, or that of a younger guy. Yuccck.

It's clean-shaven for me.

My observation of older men, including my husband (ugh) is that many just get lazy about shaving. Their grey beards become very tough and bristly and it is harder to shave. Plus the wrinkles on their face makes it even harder. Then once they miss a day (or 2) it's even harder. I agree, it is very unbecoming and sloppy looking.

Um, no, they wouldn't.

I like to see well groomed people. I admire them and think they are attractive. Unkempt & shabby is unattractive.

I like a well trimmed beard. I do not like scraggly, thin, or bushy beards. I don't like the stubble look, and it hurts to rub up against.

So just look at each of the following links to momentarily look at examples of varied celebrity males with crazy bushy beards that lean toward being rather unruly, unkempt, disheveled, et al:

http://www.wetpaint.com/wp-content/u.../01/Beard7.jpg <---- David Letterman

https://www.kansascity.com/entertain...1140/letterman <---- David Letterman

https://www.ranker.com/list/celebrit...elebrity-lists <---- Joaquin Phoenix (scroll down in the article to see his labeled image) <-- Especially take note of Joaquin Phoenix

https://c-7npsfqifvt34x24jnhjyx2esbo...hf_$/$/$/$/$/$ <---- Jim Carrey

The question for you is: I know that all choices for how to present oneself are each person's individual right and their form of expression. Having said that, why do certain males such as these that photos are displayed for by myself (re: David Letterman, Joaquin Phoenix, Jim Carrey) and a host of other males both celebrity and non-celebrity think that this is in any way, shape or form the way to presenting themselves in such a way that any other person of discernment would deem them as attractive or appealing in any way????? That is, if you are a heterosexual woman or even a gay male and look at them as they present themselves, is the way that they choose to present themselves make you want to be love-y dove-y, kiss-y, and intimate with them????? Forget that they are celebrities (and very monied) and pretend that they were just nameless commoners who blend into the mass population of the planet at-large. If you saw them out there in the world looking like this, would YOU desire to be intimate with them? It is OK if you would but just wondering if anyone out there finds this choice of how to present oneself to be sensually appealing at all. Perhaps said males don't really care about being sensually appealing and hence present themselves as this to dampen or turn off any appeal that anyone could feel toward them.

What are your own honest thoughts on their choice of personal appearance (i.e., their crazy bushy beards and facial hair)?
Jim Carrey was inoffensive-looking, when he was young - but not physically attractive. And I don't like the beard, paired with the dirty-looking, combed-backward RASPUTIN HAIR. However, with clean, brush-cut hair, the beard makes him look hot-as-blazes (even though he's almost 60). https://goo.gl/images/MPWB66 He'd definitely be doable, with the short, clean hair, and the big beard.

Joaquin Phoenix is considerably less repulsive WITH the beard. Without the beard, he was hideous - so horrible I couldn't stand to look at him. With it, he's not too terribly bad.

David Letterman is really, really old, to be judged on his physical attractiveness (heck: it's over for most men who aren't bodybuilders, past age 30). It's not particularly fair, to be judging someone's sexual attractiveness, in what could be the last decade of his life. And he was never attractive, even when young (although he has a really big "asset", which at times has been clearly visible even when he was dressed, and got him a lot of attention in his early years - a casting couch advantage which compensated for his scrawny bod) Also, that picture you linked to, shows him in a wacky getup. With the beard, he's about as attractive as a 70-year-old non-bodybuilder is likely to be capable of being - when his hair isn't drawn-back or greasy or crazy, and when his glasses aren't too repulsive. Here, in good glasses, with buzzed hair, and a teeshirt, he looks like someone I could enjoy "intimacy" with - assuming his famous "asset" is in working order. https://goo.gl/images/UMPuVP

But really, most men are past being sexually attractive, after 50, unless they're bodybuilders. So, whether or not they have beards, doesn't matter, in terms of physical attractiveness. Now, if we're talking about simply being PRESENTABLE, that's another matter. And sexual attraction isn't everything. There ARE other qualities, which are equally important.

Beards can definitely extend a man's years of attractiveness, though - at least for those of us who are actually attracted to men. They're a strong gender signal. The right beard, can make me CRAZY with lust (assuming it's paired with clean hair, and not the filthy, repulsive El-greazo Lumbersexual Up-do hair recently en vogue among Hipster-wannabe poseurs: https://goo.gl/images/bfH4ab And it's not just because I'm paying over a thousand Dollars a yard for upholstery fabric, these days - hair grease being incompatible with Silk Brocatelle). I mean, Kurt Russel's moment of glory was in 'The Thing': https://goo.gl/images/uG9WNz I don't think it's possible to get a hotter beard/hair combination.

And it's not just for white guys. Long-haired & bearded Manu Bennett was the personification of Hotness, in 'Thirty Days of Night'. https://goo.gl/images/dwja4t

Then, there's Tom Hanks, whom I'd always considered to be just an emasculated little termite of a being - totally sexless - an absolute nothing. With his usual "clean-cut" look, there's no way I could "have relations" with him - even with a young Tom Hanks. I'd be retching, uncontrollably. But then, I saw pictures of him without all that over-grooming. His natural, beachy look isn't bad at all: https://goo.gl/images/8wFDjj

Every single time I've looked at a guy and wondered how it was even possible for a man to be so attractive, he's either had a super-hairy chest, a really big moustache, or a big, thick beard. It's all about those gender signals. The more the better...
