An Ode to Movember: The Best Celeb Mustaches

Welcome to Movember. The time of year when men far and wide throw caution (and grooming) to the wind and let their whiskers run rampant to raise awareness and funds in the battle against prostate cancer. While mustaches today have become the signature trait of under-nourished indie hipsters, there is something elegant, dapper, and timeless about a man who rocks a well-kept ’stache. Here’s a look back at some of the most iconic soup strainers of all time.

Dr. Phil

Even though Dr. Phil is arguably the most annoying man on the planet, he does rock a killer mustache and a paradoxically bald head to match.

Hulk Hogan

If Hogan really does know best, does that mean all men should be rocking a platinum, handlebar mustache? (The answer to that is no—definitely not.) However, if anyone can rock this look it’s the Hulkster. (Furthermore, I doubt anyone would have the balls to tell him any different.) Photo source: "Wikimedia Commons"

Eddie Murphy

Since Coming to America was the best movie of all time, we’ll forgive you for Daddy Day Care and Norbit, but messing around with Scary Spice … you’re on your own there, Ed. (However, you do look man-a-licious with a cleanly-trimmed ’stache.) Photo source: "Wikimedia Commons"

Geraldo Rivera

Attorney, author, and former talk-show host, Geraldo is known for sensationalizing the sensational. I bet his stories wouldn’t garner quite as much attention without the omnipresence of his hairy upper lip that has survived the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s to last until today. Photo source: "markn3tel"

Burt Reynolds

From Boogie Nights to All Dogs Go to Heaven, Burt is one of the most recognizable figures in Hollywood. His mustache has become a pop culture phenomenon. There are blogs, Facebook groups, and websites dedicated to preserving Burt Reynold’s dashing ’stache. Photo source: "Wikimedia Commons"

Dr. Phil

Even though Dr. Phil is arguably the most annoying man on the planet, he does rock a killer mustache and a paradoxically bald head to match.

Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat

Borat Sagdiyev: What kind of car can I buy that attract woman with hairless vagine?
Car Dealership Owner: That would be a Corvette.
How can this man not be on any “best” list?

Sean Penn

Sean Penn is elusive, a bit creepy, and definitely sexy. While he sports a real mustache at times, word on the street is that his fake one fell into his costar’s mouth during a particularly hot and heavy kiss scene in the movie Milk.

Ron Jeremy

He’s the king of porn and the czar of creepy mustaches. He’s also credited for birthing the “porn ’stache” and the subsequent outbreak of mustaches in the porn industry.

Salvador Dali

Dali himself wrote a book entitled, Dali’s Mustache. The back cover of this wit-ridden photographic interview warns, “This book is preposterous!” Somehow Dali without a mustache is a cupcake without frosting—it just ain’t right.

Walter Cronkite

One of the most prominent news figures of our time, Cronkite was the first and last in a twenty-year string of mustached anchormen. “And that’s the way it was.”

Carlos Santana

And it’s just like the ocean under the moon/Well it’s the same as the emotion that I get from you/You got the kinda loving that can be so smooth/Yeah/Give me your heart/Make it real/Or else forget about it … With lyrics like that, you could rock a brow ’stache and still be cool.
