Kris Kristofferson

Kris Kristofferson, one of the greatest song writers of our time, is one handsome liberal. And I’m not just saying that because I love “Me & Bobby McGee” and “Help Me Make It through the Night” or because of Ethan Hawke’s tale of how he told off Toby Keith (more).

Kristofferson is handsome mostly due to his righteous beard.

Presently straddling something akin to Steve Zissou and formerly cribbing style notes from the pages of Leisure Suit Monthly (see video below), Kristofferson has had a long history of sporting a beard.

This scruff is teeming with toughness. Kristofferson’s salty beard could be a bit longer, but it’s all about attitude. Instead, the short trim is all business and matches his no-nonsense glare.

Also, he hunted vampires. Which is kinda awesome.
