Special Edition of Beard of the Day!


I know. I usually post my Beard of the Day on Fridays, but this is a special occasion. Christian Bale has been awarded Beard of the Day in the past, but this winner deserves its own award! Oh boy! Lumberjacks world-wide are rejoicing. CB showed up at the Oscars with a swanky black outfit and a scraggly beard ensemble. What a combination!

This barely groomed facial hair is the ultimate, "Wild Man", thick and rugged beard. I love how it's slightly reddish colored as opposed to the dark brown hair on his head. And the stache is great, too.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that beard pretty much ensured his win for Best Supporting Actor. Beard Power!

I didn't watch last night, but I heard he gave a very sweet thank-you to his wife. Good man.

Happy Monday to Everyone!
Penelope

YESSSS!!! The BEARD power!
*sigh* I am not really a bread kind of gal, but I felt 'stirrings' when I saw this one pop up on the screen. =)

That type of primitive beard has power, baby! It roars...."I am man!"

I've got a new book with a bearded hero for you. Last week I read Yours, Mine and Howls by Kinsey Holley and was surprised (and pleased) that the werewolf hero had a nice trimmed beard. There's even a scene with him shaving. I really enjoyed the book - I'm a sucker for growly werewolf types LOL. Plus there were funny bits and good dialog also.

I must say Christian looks much better with the beard than without.

Yay, Jen!!!!! A new beardy hero! Thanks so much for the recommendation. I'm gonna go add it onto my TBR list at Goodreads. I need to start a "bearded hero" shelf there...hee hee!

It seemed like he forgot her name, his wife I mean! It was a little weird, but really the Oscars are a bit dull! They need to be first or keep cutting the dull bits!

Penelope said...

Hi Nancy! I heard that, too, about him forgetting her name. But he still said some nice things. I would probably forget my own name if I won an Oscar!

He's so sexy.

It is odd that it's a totally different color from his head though.

My husband grows a seriously fierce beard :)

Penelope said...

Hi Juju! Oh, a fierce beard! What a great expression....I am totally going to use that in the book I'm writing right now....the hero has a fierce beard!

Julia Rachel Barrett said...

I knew it! I knew you'd post this today! When I saw him last night, all I could think about was - Penny is going to post a picture of him! LOL!

Penelope said...

Julia...you knew I couldn't resist this one. I sort of feel like he grew this beauty just for my pleasure. So thoughtful of him! :^)

HistoricalRomanceJunkie Rita said...

LMAO!! I said bread...

Penelope said...

Maybe there are gluten-free beards...hee hee!

lemonverbenalady said...

I think I would have made a fool of myself as well or passed out!

Cassidy Hunter said...

Sigh. He's just so gorgeous! I've never been a beard(or bread, haha)kind of gal either, but for him, I could change my mind real fast ;)

Penelope said...

Hi Cassidy! Stop by every Friday for my Beard of the Day post and I will try to bring you over to the dark side! :^)
