Great facial hair isn’t born, it’s made. And we’re all glad for that, mainly for the sake of the christening photos. Whether it’s trimmed and distinguished, unruly and passionate or just quietly, silkily smug, nothing says “I’m a real man” like a fantastic piece of hairy chin-wear. And with Movember – the month where men worldwide throw off the shackles of the razor and grow their ‘taches for charity – there’s never been a better reason to explore your inner face-beast. Take inspiration from history as we celebrate this glorious month with the Top 10 movie moustaches; gentlemen, start your testosterone tablets.
In these troubling times of global warming, financial crises and that nice Tiger Woods cheating on his wife, it’s comforting to know that one man alone remains staid and unchangeable: Hugh Grant. Yes, he’s pretty much played the same character for the past 20 years, but goddammit, the man does it well. His latest frothy outing with toast-of-New-York Sarah Jessica Parker is no exception – this time, a posh man is heading into the wilds of the American midwest after he and his estranged wife witness a murder.
In these troubling times of global warming, financial crises and that nice Tiger Woods cheating on his wife, it’s comforting to know that one man alone remains staid and unchangeable: Hugh Grant. Luckily, his latest frothy outing, with toast of New York Sarah Jessica Parker, is no exception to his usual bumbling-posh-man charms – this time, he’s heading into the wilds of the American midwest after he and his estranged wife witness a murder and must be relocated into a protection scheme. There’s just as many laughs, albeit predictable ones, as always, so if you’re a Hugh fan, get ready for a fun-filled 90 minnutes spent chuckling into your popcorn.
