The 22 Hottest Bearded Men In Britain

Because if anything increases fanciability, it’s a bit of stubble.

22. Jamie Dornan.

OK, OK so he’s northern Irish - but look at him, we couldn’t not include him. Jamie’s beard serves to draw attention to his cheekbones which look like they’ve been sculpted by the ACTUAL HANDS of God himself.

Danny’s beard shall forever be known as the Saviour of Eastenders.

20. Robert Pattinson.

So relaxed. So rugged. So hot. And just look at him. He knows it.

19. Jason Statham.

The beard makes him resemble a long-lost Mitchell brother. Only way, way fitter.

18. Gary Barlow.

Gary displays what’s officially* regarded as just the right amount of beard needed to cause a rash after a make out session.

*Definitely not official.

He’s also indesputibly hotter with facial hair…

So growing a full beard should probably be on his ‘To do’ list.

17. Hugh Laurie.

If it wasn’t for the beard, inappropriate crushes on Dr House wouldn’t be a thing.

16. Jude Law.

If you don’t want to stroke his face there’s something wrong with you.

15. Orlando Bloom.

Orlando has the beginnings of something wonderful.

14. Max George.

He has the actual (hairy) face of an angel.

13. Craaaaaiiiiig Daaaavid.

Circa 2000, when his beard was a genuine work of art, obviously.

Not so much any more…

Now it’s all got a bit weird.

12. Rylan Clark.

Rylan gets extra points because unlike Craig he actually dyes his beard which must be a right old faff.

11. Jeremy Paxman.

Don’t judge.

That beard trended on Twitter.

10. Louis Tomlinson.

One Direction* are probably secretly envious of his manly facial hair.

*Apart from Zayn.

9. Zayn Malik.

8. David Gandy.

If you thought he’d reached peak hotness when he languished on a boat in his pants for Dolce & Gabana, you need to remember that he now also has this ridiculously sexy beard on his face.

7. Christian Bale.

Yeah, you applaud yourself for that impeccable beard, Christian.

6. Jack Whitehall.

The beard is probably the most rugged part of Jack, but that doesn’t matter because it’s amazing.

5. Russell Brand.

This is what happens when you can’t be bothered to shave because you’re too busy womanising.

4. David Beckham.

Just when you thought Becks was the perfect specimen of mankind, he goes and grows a beard which defies the laws of human sexiness.

3. Prince Harry.

It’s quite clear who the hottest Prince is.

2. Michael Fassbender.

Okay, so technically he’s Irish-German, but we’re counting him in the round-up. The quiffed hair and the shades and the tux and the beard. IT’S ALL TOO MUCH.

1. Tom Hardy.

It’s full-bodied and hairy and just really, really, like UNBELIEVABLY manly.

Congratulations Tom, on having Britain’s Best Beard.
