Yes, starring Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa. Hans Lundgren plays his father, right?

There is maybe (?) 1% of the male population who can pull this look off. It looks rough on the other 99%.

Neaten the beard up and the ratio goes up to 20/80 or so.

My personal feeling is that most men look better without beards. A few - very few - look better with them. I have known two, and in both cases, they kept them short and very precisely trimmed. Bush, untrimmed beards look slovenly and unclean. How on earth do those guys keep food particles out of them?

No i don't like the bushy beards nor the shorter unshaven look. I like a nice smooth face and lips. So sexy. No face rash on delicate lady skin. Top-knots in male hair is another no-go for me.

Beards are wildly popular in rural Washington. The worst offenders are the older men with wild gray beards coming into town on weekends with suspender jeans and it looks hillbilly. Beards are worse than man buns, but whatever floats their boat.

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)?
Ick. I don't like those beards, at all. As for why they do it, maybe it's their way of saying 'I don't care". I especially think that in Jim Carrey's case as he really has tried to clue people into some of the evil stuff Hollywood has been doing.

I've never been into facial hair on men (though I'm not into body hair, period. i would not at all be offended if men were to shave it all... and it has nothing to do with "gender signals" or preferring more-effeminate looking men... I don't care who he is or what he looks like, hairy is not attractive to me). I know some who can pull off facial hair... but maybe I just say this because it's the way I've always known them. (Once when I was a little kid, my dad, who has always had a short beard, had to shave for work. He came home, I took one look at him and hid, lol. Can't remember what he looks like under the hair or if I'd prefer it. Same for a former college prof-- he said he shaved his beard *once* when he and his wife were dating. His words: "She saw me, she shrieked, I knew I'd never be shaving it off again." LOL.)

My ex in college decided to grow a beard (short one, though). I was not into it but obviously wasn't going to tell him not to. I got used to it in time. I wouldn't seek out a guy who already had facial hair, though.

But the long, scruffy, lumberjack/ZZ Top beards?? Nooooo. If you have to buy a comb or "product" for it... if I could practice my braiding on it... nooooo.

Jason Momoa? No thanks. (Jason Statham pulls off that stubble thing well, though. Some others can... but many look like they're trying too hard to look like Jason Statham. Without, um, looking like Jason Statham.)

At the end of the day, though-- anybody can do whatever they want re: facial hair. But I'm unlikely to be into a guy who does, personally. Other women would be all over him.

I soooo misread this at first and thought, "what part of the 'Santa' persona includes back hair???" OMG.

What's worse in many cases, such as Letterman, is when a rough-n-tough frontiersman beeard is worn with very neatly styled hair and a tailored suit. Or a Best Buy vest. Or anything but fairly authentic western clothes.
