It's more than just the shaggy beards and ratty hair that connect Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and 'Gladiator' star Russell Crowe in the above photo.

It's also the rare smiles both are cracking. True, Vedder's seems to come a bit more easily than the perpetually grumpy Crowe's, but how often do you see either of these guys do anything but scowl?

Vedder has also been known to shave off his hair and rock a mohawk from time to time. And Crowe recently has been spotted looking like one of the 'Deadliest Catch' crew members. But in the two photos above, it's almost impossible to tell the two bearded buddies apart.
