Hollywood has a wide assortment of wild beards, many of which have become more memorable than the actors wearing them. But no beard can overpower Hugh Jackman.
Below, Jackman appears in the first shot from the upcoming Les Miserables, sporting some scraggly facial hair as the destitute Jean Valjean. Jackman himself Tweeted the image attached to the message, ""Very excited about how the first days of filming are going!! Check out my convict look...but its changing soon.""
Although the removal of this particularly unkempt soup-strainer is likely to return Jackman to his usual levels of incomparable allure, you can't really deny that even with the dingy facial hair of the perpetually on-the-lam Valjean, Jackman is still a pretty sharp-looking fellow.
Les Miserables also stars Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Sacha Baron Cohen, and is directed by Tom Hooper.
