Men go bald! It can happen to anyone, even the celebrities. While some of us might stress out about balding (only to make things worse) some actors decided to make bald the new sexy.
Here is a list of 10 iconic bald actors
WWE fans might remember Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with hair but for the most part of his Hollywood career, the wrestler turned actor has been bald. His charismatic personality has made him one of the highest paid actors.
It’s hard to recall a time when Mr. Fast & Furious, Vin Diesel was not bald. The actor’s bald look has become as iconic as the Fast & Furious franchise itself.
Jason Statham’s bald head probably helps him more than anyone in giving him a tough guy look. Being trained in various forms of martial arts and doing all his action sequences and stunts himself probably adds to the tough guy image.
Fourth guy on the list from the Fast & Furious franchise! It seems like Vin really wants to promote his bald look! Tyrese Gibson is a fun addition to any film. He brings an element of energy that is hard to rival.
Sir Ben Kingsley
Sir Ben Kingsley’s bald head landed him the role of the most iconic bald man in history along with an Oscar. He was probably the best casting decision for the role of Mahatma Gandhi and not just because of the physical resemblance but more for the calm he can bring to a scene. This ‘Sexy Beast’ is among Hollywood’s finest.
Samuel L Jackson
The man who makes swearing sound sweet, Samuel L Jackson was notorious for his hairdos in the 90s. The man made a Jheri curl look badass. Unsurprisingly, Captain Nick Fury makes the bald look work just as much if not more.
Sir Patrick Stewart
Sir Patrick Stewart or as most young fans know him, Professor Charles Xavier is an English actor whose career spans for over 60 years. He had to persevere his way from stage to television to movies.
Michael Clarke Duncan
Michael Clarke Duncan and his facial expressions were the highlight of his movie career. His huge structure coupled with either a tough look or even a smile always looked terrifying on the big screen. His death at the age of 54 was mourned across Hollywood.
One of the best actors to play the villain. He brings an intensity to the bad guy character which is hard to replicate and well his bald head definitely helps his on screen bad guy personas.
Bruce Willis is the ultimate action movie star, even though he is past 60 everyone wants another Die-Hard but to reduce him to just that would be criminal. His movie catalog is vast and he was one of the biggest stars of the 90s.
Bad hair day? What’s that?
