In the world of Tinseltown, there are many actors who always look stylish, whether that’s on-screen, off-screen or on the red carpet. Even though wearing glasses is usually for reading and improving eyesight, for many actors, wearing glasses has become a part of their trademark look and a key aspect of their style.
Here are the top 10 Hollywood actors who wear glasses.
1. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp is one of the top film actors of our time, having starred in multiple highly rated and grossing movies – such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and Chocolate Factory, Sleep Hollow and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.
He’s often been voted as one of the Sexiest Men Alive, and we think that his pair of designer frames adds to his suave appearance.
2. Justin Timberlake
Once a member of the boy band N*SYNC, Justin Timberlake has since gone on to become a successful singer-songwriter and film actor, having appeared in movies such as The Social Network and Bad Teacher.
Not only that, but he looks pretty handsome with a pair of specs too.
