I would very much like to post photos here (even with the web links to said photos posted as well) but the C-D.com's Term of Service (TOS) appear to forbid posting such photos (even while attributing them to the web links from which they came). 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)?

I suspect it is rebellion against the expectations that those men have had to live up to. Between projects or in retirement, they don’t have to shave, so they don’t. They don’t care how they appear at all. They are older guys, after all.

Other non famous older guys grow beards too.

Do I personally like those bushy beards? No! And I am thankful DH feels the same, because he’d hear about it from me if he did. I would not stop him though, if he really wanted to grow a beard. I’d fuss.

At any rate, those guys don’t affect me in the least. I don’t care what they do. They look like Old Testament patriarchs or hillbillies, neither of which appeal to me. But I honstly don’t care what they do.

My brother-in-law looks just like a more shaggy version of Jim Carrey. I don't understand why he wants to look so old. He's three years older than my husband, but the beard makes him look 20 years older.

I don't care for beards at all, especially bushy ones. Husband had a moderate beard for ages, largely because he was finally able to grow one once he retired from the military. When he finally decided to shave it off, it took at least a decade off him. Thankfully, he is not planning to grow it back.

You all make good points about those shaggy beards adding years to an appearance.

I’d say most with shaggy beards don’t give a damn if people find them unattractive.

I like short, trimmed beards. Not long or bushy ones (not all long beards are bushy). And certainly not long bushy beards. Funny, though, I always liked stubble on a guy. I call it the scruffy look.

And the women who claim they hate long beards and long hair, would bang Jason Momoa in a heartbeat.
