‘Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts’ – Jim Morrison
1. Taylor Lautner, Twilight
Who would’ve guessed that under this unfortunate mass of hair, a teenage heartthrob was waiting to bust out?
2. Nicolas Cage, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Nicolas Cage’s career has been defined by a long line of eccentric hair decisions. Few of his mops have been crazier than this one.
3. Dana Carvey, Wayne’s World
As the co-host of a popular cable access, Garth Algar had the long blonde locks that makes ladies go weak at the knees. Not!
4. Jim Carrey, Dumb and Dumber
This one was kind of a toss-up between Jeff Daniels’ unkempt follicular disaster and Carrey’s woeful bowl-cut. In the end, it came down to the fact that Lloyd’s hairdo must’ve been a conscious decision.
5. Cameron Diaz, There’s Something About Mary
One day in the distant future, when Cameron Diaz passes away, this will be the scene they show during the ‘In Memoriam’ section of the Oscars.
6. Tom Hanks, The Da Vinci Code
Famous Harvard Symbologist Robert Langdon picked up a red comb and ran it through his greasy mullet. “Before we go to Zurich to help to my old friend Professor Winkler, I better make sure my hair looks good, like always,” he said to the attractive woman.
7. Chris Tucker, The Fifth Element
As one of Earth’s most popular DJs in the 13rd Century, Ruby Rhod’s voice is his fortune. This is fortunate for him, as he’s got a head of hair that’s perfect for radio.
8. Sean Penn, Carlito’s Way
You might not remember the name of Penn’s sleazy lawyer character in Carlito’s Way (it’s Dave Kleinfeld, by the way) but you’ll never forgot the awful perm he sports all the way through the film.
9-11. Javier Bardem, No Country for Old Men, Skyfall, The Counsellor
As professor emeritus at the University of Bad Movie Hair, Javier Bardem has scored a recent hat-trick with these three spectacular coiffures.
