Milk was a bad choice.

Actor: Tom Hanks
Why it's Epic: As Tom Hanks' character gets crazier being stuck on an island, so does his beard. You'd think he would have been able to makeshift a Gillette or something out there, seeing as he could build other things.
Actor: Michael Gambon
Movie: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Why it's Epic: It's Albus Freakin' Dumbledore! (That's his real middle name.) Not only is he the greatest sorcerer of all time, he's also the recordholder for the most magnificent beard. Just don't tell Gandalf that, please.

Actor: Ian McKellen
Movie: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Actor: Chia Hui-Liu
