(Newser) – Sexiest man alive? Pshaw. Brad Pitt looks more like “the guy who dealt weed in college,” writes Reed Tucker in the New York Post. Pitt’s facial hair, when it debuted in 2008, seemed like a temporary phase—but two years later, the beard is “longer, grayer, scragglier and even more knotted—and probably has a “family of spiders living inside.”

OK, sure, he’s growing his “topiary experiment” for an upcoming role as an explorer who went missing in the Amazon—but why not use the makeup department, instead of “subjecting us to this national nightmare?” At this rate, “he’s lucky Angelina Jolie doesn’t go running back to Billy Bob Thornton.” Check out his journey from mustache to mountain man in the slideshow.

Nice jouralist work there Reed Tucker. Guess it was a slow day at the post for him to whip this pointless shit-story up. I think hes jealous that Brad will make more money then him no matter how "grungy" he looks haha

That's not a beard, that's a goat. And there's nothing wrong with it. It actually looks kinda cool going white at the end like that, like natural coloration. The bells look kinda silly, but he probably thinks he'll start a fad, since he's a celeb. My guess is it's probably for an upcoming role. Let a dude be a dude.
