Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy

Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy

The growing and maintaining of a moustache is not only an annoyance to women the world over, but an art form.

Over the years we have seen actors go above and beyond the call of duty to produce some impressive facial hair for a movie role.

We take a look at some of the most outstanding movie moustaches that have ever graced the big screen.

- Ron Burgundy - Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Seeing that Will Ferrell is back as Ron Burgundy this week, it would be rude to start anywhere else.

This time around the movie has moved on from the seventies and is set in the changing media world of the eighties.

But Ron is still sporting the same old tache... which we have to say gives him a bit of a sleazy look.

- Bill 'The Butcher' Cutting - Gangs of New York

Daniel Day Lewis is an actor who is only more then willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for a role.

So growing a moustache is nothing for this triple Oscar winner, and he did just that for the role of The Butcher.

And it is an impressive piece of facial hair that only added to his fearsome and evil character.

- Hook - Hook

We love Dustin Hoffman here at FemaleFirst and he grew a very lovely moustache for the title role in Hook.

He went for a slightly eccentric look with curly moustache and eyebrows - he may have been the villain but he has a pit of panache about him.

- Captain Jack Sparrow - Pirates of the Caribbean

There has been no greater pirate character than Captain Jack Sparrow - the creation of the fantastic Johnny Depp.

Sparrow is a pirate that is a mix of charm, swagger and silliness and he has a terrific look to go with it.

Depp went for a moustache and beard combo: the latter all topped off with plait and beads - nice!!

- Emperor Ming - Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon is one of those cheesy movies of the eighties that you cannot help but love.

Max von Sydow took on the role of villain Emperor Ming, and sported a slightly over the top and longer than necessary beard and moustache combo. Oh, yes and those odd eyebrows.

- Frank Serpico - Serpico

Al Pacino was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his central role in Serpico; where he played the title role.

He played a New York cop who turned whistle blower as he opened up about corruption in the force.

For the role Pacino went for full beard and well maintained moustache.

- Jules Winnfield - Pulp Fiction

There is no cooler man on the planet than Samuel L. Jackson, and only he could pull off afro and an rather unruly moustache so effortlessly.

He may be killing people and sprouting bits of the bible, but he looks damn good doing it.

Other great movie moustaches include Matt Dillon in Something About Mary, Gordon Liu in Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Tom Hardy in Branson and Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Sam Elliot, and Bill Paxton in Tombstone.
