Once upon a time, when it was a man's world, men were, well, men. They grew out their facial, chest, and back hair, giving less than a shit about how attractive or unattractive it was, and they smelled like beer and axle grease. These days, men who've been conditioned to hate their natural condition shave, wax, and pluck and use beauty products that smell like fruit plates.

Recognizing this shift in what is considered "manly," documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock asked famous men like Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and John Waters about male grooming for his new movie Mansome, which hit theaters last week. Inspired by his exploration, Complex put together a gallery of men who are iconic precisely because they let it grow like a Chia Pet. Behold: The Most Iconic Hairy Celebrities.
