How Much Facial Hair Can You Handle When Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe Share the Same Red Carpet?

With the time difference between here and Cannes, we’re way beyond 5 o’clock shadow.

Ryan Gosling, Russell Croweand Matt Bomer smoldered (and selfie’d) their way down the red carpet at the Cannes premiere of their film, The Nice Guys, and where the Blake Lively princess element was lacking, the men compensated with full-on face bush.

Then Gosling kicks it up a notch with a sensible lumberjack face-to-neck forest fluff.

And then Crowe takes it the full-habañero with his plush dadcore beard to show the young boys how it’s truly done.
