CIA Agent Walker, ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ (2018)
This moustache costs millions. Sporting some fierce facial hair as a CIA agent in “Mission: impossible –Fallout”, Henry Cavill’s headline-making ‘stache cost Warner Bros. a lot of cash to digitally remove it after the actor was recalled to complete “Justice League” reshoots while filming the Tom Cruise action movie. Superman may have a mother named Martha, but he doesn’t have a moustache – Paramount wouldn’t allow Cavill to shave his soup strainer so digital wizards had to edit it away. The results are…interesting.
Borat, ‘Borat’ (2006)
Borat wants to learn about American ways in the 2006 mockumentary “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan”, but he can teach us all a few things about growing an impressive moustache. Sacha Baron Cohen deserves a high-five when it comes to upper lip domination. Full and thick - some might even call it luscious - it’s the perfect accessory for a neon mankini.
Jules Winnfield, ‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994)
Samuel L. Jackson’s Bible-quoting Jules Winnfield is moustache royalty with his sideburns reaching out to embrace his fantastic horseshoe ‘stache. It’s a magnificent moustache that should strike fear in the hearts of man.
Pat Healy, ‘There’s Something About Mary’ (1998)
Need to know a man is a slimeball? Just look at his upper lip. One glance at Matt Dillon’s thin and greasy moustache as P.I. Pat Healy in “There’s Something About Mary” tells you he’ll never win over Mary’s (Cameron Diaz) heart when the moustache-less Ted (Ben Stiller) is around.
Captain Hook, ‘Hook’ (1991)
There’s something to be said about a man whose moustache matches his best accessory. The swashbuckler with a hook for a hand echoes his signature weapon on his face in the form of a very properly greased and curled moustache and matching eyebrows. It’s a look and he owns it on the high seas of Neverland.
Lando Calrissian, ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ (1980)
Han Solo has his vest, but Lando Clarissian has his moustache. There’s no denying Billy Dee Williams is the coolest guy in the galaxy. It’s not the cape, it’s the ‘stache that shows off his ‘tude.
Donald Glover also nailed the character's signature well-manicured upper lip accessory when he took on the role of young Lando in “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.
Bill ‘The Butcher’ Cutting, ‘Gangs Of New York’ (2002)
Daniel Day-Lewis is a method actor even when it comes to moustaches. His moustache as Daniel Plainview in “There Will Be Blood” will drink your milkshake and challenge you to a game of bowling (Tip: never bet against the ‘stache). But it’s his villainous facial hair masterpiece in Martin Scorsese‘s “Gangs of New York” that has us bristling. Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of mid-19th century New Yorkers like Bill “The Butcher” Cutting and his cultivated crumb-catcher.
Derek Smalls, ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ (1984)
This moustache is turned up to 11. There’s no under-estimating the hugeness of Harry Shearer’s face decor in “This Is Spinal Tap”. It’s a masculine, manly moustache that just screams rock n’ roll, on-stage or off. Break out the measuring tape because it might just be the same length as an 18-inch Stonehenge monument.
Everyone In ‘Tombstone’ (1993)
So. Many. Moustaches. Pretty sure the auditions for “Tombstone” were held on the actors’ upper lips. The moustache posse features a variety of colours and styles sported by Val Kilmer, the always excellently moustachioed Sam Elliot, Kurt Russell and the late Bill Paxton, because next to a gun and the ten-gallon hat, the only other thing required in the Wild Wild West is a moustache.
Ron Burgundy, ‘Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy’ (2004)
Moustaches equal manliness when it comes to Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell). His moustache is kind of a big deal, proving he’s equally ready for business as he is for some scotchy scotch scotch. Looking at his moustache, you know it just smells of rich mahogany.
