19 Actors Who Have Gone Through A "Pornstache" Phase And Still Look Hot

The term "mustache" derives from the French word "moustache" and is often used to describe the appearance of facial hair in men.
Mustaches are a type of facial hair grown on the upper lip, usually with a distinctive, bushy appearance. The use of a mustache as a symbol for rank dates back to the Napoleonic Wars, where it was used by French officers as a way of distinguishing themselves from their infantrymen.
Mustaches are more than just a fashion statement. For centuries, men have considered the mustache to be the ultimate symbol of masculinity. Commonly grown by adult males, mustaches are one of the defining characteristics of some men.
Because of these perks, the mustache is a popular look for male porn stars. Which creates the unfortunate term “pornstache.” But do all men look good with a mustache on? Here are 19 actors that have gone through a “pornstache” phase.
