Yo Ho! 19 Celebrities Who Look Like Pirates!

Ahoy, landlubbers! September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and, in honor of this illustrious event, we’ve gathered the 19 celebrities we think look more than a little like pirates! You know we’re right…

1. Prince

Did pirates wear purple?


2. Adam Lambert

Yikes! Are those doubloons on your pirate chain, Adam?

4. Slash

Typically wears a top hat. It’s like Abraham Lincoln and a pirate had a baby…


5. Russell Brand

Scourge of the 7 seas? You’ll have to ask Katy Perry.

7. David Bowie

Maybe more of a swashbuckler of sorts? Or a “Pirate from Mars?” Looks less like a pirate these days.

12. Orlando Bloom

Ok, so he played a pirate in a famous movie about pirates. But you know he is just a hook hand away from being a pirate in real life.

13. Lil Jon

He even drinks from a goblet! A jewel-encrusted goblet! It’s probably not filled with grog, though.

AAAAAR you gonna go his way?

15. Kristen Stewart

One of the very few females who inherently look like a pirate… Doesn’t she usually wear giant hoop earrings? Naturally.

Old enough to have starred in Robinson Crusoe!
