Pressing Question of the Day: Who Has The Most Romantic Beard (MRB)?

Okay, it's time for the poll you have all been waiting for with baited breath...(drum roll, please): the Most Romantic Beard Contest! Woo hoo!

Penelope has assembled a nice assortment of scruffy guys for my (oops! I mean your) viewing pleasure. Take your time and carefully peruse the following photos, then let me know who is your favorite bearded valentine. I know, I know....it's hard to choose just one. I will announce the results of the poll and pick one random winner from the comments today. Prize is an Amazon gift card.

Enjoy!



George Clooney: Salt-n-peppa happiness with just a hint of naughty.


Brad Pitt: Pre-Jeremiah monstrosity, this beard is nicely groomed and looks oh, so soft! Weee!


Hugh Jackman: Perfect combination....wild, wet water and Hugh's masculine scruff.


Eric Bana: Yowzah! Sooooo cute!


Matthew McConaughey: Dude, that is one southern-fried sexy bit of business.


Ralph Fiennes: So serious and scruffilicious!


Those are some fine specimens of harry manliness! Please leave a comment with your #1 choice!

I'll start! (hee hee...happy day!)....okay, I just cannot resist this adorable photo of Eric Bana...seriously, I want to eat him up with a spoon! He is de-lish.

I just discovered a new book (Howl by Mariposa Cruz) that's coming out with a bearded hero! I'm gonna start the ARC today...cannot wait. (He's a werewolf, who as we all know are hairy guys!).

Bex said...

I am quite partial to the George photo. That man can wear just about anything and still look scrumptious.

Penelope said...

Hi Bex! George is definitely aging well. Good choice!

Mandi said...

I have to go with George..his eyes say - meet me in the bedroom.

But Ralph has always been a fav too :)

Penelope said...

Hi Mandi! I think the totally appealing thing about George is how he doesn't take himself and the whole Hollywood thing too seriously...he is a real jokester, and most women love that charm!

Matthew M, gets my vote, he's gorgeous. But Brad is close behind. Can I have them both? Mmmmm, I'll have to take a moment and think about that fantasy for a while!

sherry said...

My vote is for Hugh Jackman he's just so hot. He looks great with or without a beard.

Penelope said...

despr8housewife....hee hee hee! A Matthew and Brad sammie fantasy....well all right!

Penelope said...

Hi Sherry! Hugh is awesome....my friend Vicki actually got to meet him in person and she has the photo to prove it prominently displayed in her living room.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Jackman and Fiennes :)

Penelope said...

Hi Juju! Good choices. They both have those luscious accents, too. Aussie and British. Makes me melt (like a chocolate candy!).

Aleksandra said...

I have to go with Eric Bana! Without the beard he's so-so, but with a beard he's irresistible!

Penelope said...

Yeah, Aleksandra! Another vote for Eric!

Keira of LoveRomancePassion said...

I'll narrow it down to 3! Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, and Ralph Fiennes. I'll take them scruffy, cleaned up, clothed or naked... especially naked.

Susan Laura said...

George Clooney, absolutely. And Eric is a close second.

Penelope said...

Hi Keira! All 3 together would be nice!

Penelope said...

Hi Susan...we have a lot of George-lovers today.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sharon said...

Oh, my...so many tasty choices!! Ralph's eyes call to me, but George is my #1. There's just something about him...OK, make that everything about him...

hugh numnumnumnumnum

Penelope said...

Hey Sharon and Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by. Too bad the prize can't be hand delivered by one of the guys!

Natascha said...

Hugh Jackman, hands down.

Penelope said...

Conversation between Hugh Jackman and his wife.

Wife: I love Hugh.

Hugh: I love you, too, honey.

Wife: I am the luckiest woman on the face of the world!

etirv said...

Weakness for Hugh Jackman but Eric Bana is also irresistible!

Penelope said...

hey etirv....Hugh was my first love, and then I saw Eric in Troy and I almost passed out. With joy.

Scorpio M. said...

okaaay...if I have to choose, I choose Brad! I think Brad has that Paul Newman thing going on, he'll look fine at ANY age!

Penelope said...

Hi Scorpio! Oh! that gives me a great idea...I have to find a photo of Paul Newman with some scruff....off to look! Thanks!
