Ed Westwick recently stepped out in London with new face wear—or we should say face hairs?
Westwick, in a laid-back denim look, strolled out of Cirque du Soir nightclub with actor-buddy Jason Statham in tow. The actor is most remembered for playing pretty-boy Chuck bass in Gossip Girl, but now that the series has ended he isn’t afraid to let his scruff show. But Westwick’s mustache is still in that growing-out stage when compared to these five other leading men who have rocked the look.
1. Paul Rudd: The actor grew a half-handlebar ‘stache for his return to the Anchorman movie franchise—and we have to say, it doesn't look that bad. Unfortunately for Brian Fantana fans, Rudd has since shaved the mustache since debuting the hairy lip look on The Today Show in March.
2. Sacha Baron Cohen: While the actor either goes for clean-shaven or all-over-scruff when he's not in character, the Borat mustache is one that stands apart from all the rest. The look became synonymous with the actor, who has since gone on to play other kooky bearded characters, including Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen in The Dictator.
3. George Clooney: We like Clooney clean-shaven! But the actor has recently been spotted filming in the U.K. with a mustache the same salt-and-pepper shade as his famous coif. Leave it to George to make a mustache look gentlemanly even when he's out in jeans and a newsboy cap.
4. John Travolta: The actor rocked this tough-guy look in 2008 while filming the remake of The Taking of Pelham 123. Happily, the actor nixed the look once filming wrapped.
5. Jason Lee: This might just be the wackiest ‘stache of all time! The TV star, who played redneck Earl Hickey in My Name is Earl from 2005 to 2009, sported this mustache throughout the series run (method acting, perhaps?). The actor's Alfafaesque hairdo and sideways-leaning ‘stache made the character memorable (and meme-able).
