It takes a lot of effort for Hugh Jackman to look anything less than handsome at all times. Sure, there's the occasional awkward running picture or a bad haircut for a period film, but for the most part, his dashing good looks prevail. However, nothing tests that theory quite like a dramatic new look, like the bald-head-with-full-beard that he's currently rocking for his role as Blackbeard in Joe Wright's upcoming film Pan. Jackman unveiled a picture of himself and his newly shorn head on Tuesday morning, and while we're still torn on his new haircut, there's no doubt that Jackman can pull off a pirate beard like very few others could.
After all, Jackman has a lot more experience with film-required facial hair than almost anyone in Hollywood. So, the real question here isn't whether Jackman still looks good with his new look - of course he does! - but whether this beard is better than all of the other movie beards that the triple-threat has grown over the years. Sure, it belongs to a legendary pirate, but is it better than the iconic Wolverine mutton chops? How about his scraggly convict look from Les Miserables? In order to prove, once and for all, which Jackman beard reigns supreme, we've ranked the actor's many movie beards.
