Henry Cavill is currently sexily scowling his way through season one of The Witcher on Netflix, and you don’t hear any of us complaining. That grey-white wig isn’t the greatest but hey, I could live with Chris Evans’s cop mustache so I can cope with this. The appeal of Cavill got the Overlords discussing the joys of Cavill as a whole. Yes, he’s hot, but when is he at his hottest? As with so many men, it all comes down to facial hair.

Clean-shaven Cavill embodies retro leading man charm, as best embodied in the most perfect film ever made, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It’s not hard to see why that face and that a** chin got him cast as Superman.

But then there’s that delicate dusting of stubble that gives him an extra edge of something special.



Nice, of course, but how about a full beard?

We get it, dude, you’re pretty.

But, of course, we must mention the glorious mustache that caused Warner Bros. to spend a ludicrous amount of money on terrible gooey-looking facial CGI so that it could remain on Cavill’s chiseled face.





Ranking Cavill’s facial hair hotness is one of life’s more pleasurable tasks because there are no losers here, except for bad taste. We are simple creatures and we ask for so little in life. So, which one is hotter, or are you not that picky?

Honorable mention must go out to Cavill’s adorable fuzzy-faced doggy!
