Man of Steel Mania: Our 25 Favorite Bespectacled Stars

Clark Kent's signature eyeglasses are one of the few things that stand in the way of his transformation into Superman—but to be completely honest, we think he cuts a pretty dashing figure in those specs. As it turns out, there are tons of Hollywood and fashion-industry heavyweights who also need a little help in the vision-correction department. Many choose to save their frames for their off-duty days, while others prefer to rock them on the red carpet as well. But either way, we think all of the celebs spotlighted below make the whole "four eyes" thing look good.

In honor of Man of Steel, out this Friday, let's make some passes at 25 stars who wear glasses.

And speaking of Star Trek castmembers, Zach "Mr. Spock" Quinto's frames are a key component of his perpetually dapper look.

Tina Fey

Whip-smart, pretty and just a bit nerdy, Tina's one of television's biggest power players for good reason.

Matt Bomer

There are very few things on the face of this planet that could make White Collar's leading man more ridiculously good-looking. Glasses just so happen to be one of them.

Why does Liv wear glasses? Because she don't wanna miss a thing! (Ba-dun-dun-chhh...)

Lisa Loeb

We can't discuss bespectacled stars without nodding to the musical genius who first made us all want to invest in a pair. "Stay" stylish, Lisa.

Jenna Lyons

As creative (not to mention covetable) as her mixed-print ensembles might be, Jenna's rarely seen without her signature thick-framed eyewear.

There's nobody better than Annie Hall to show us how chic pinstripes and prescription glasses can look.

Chloë Sevigny

The It girl's famous geeky-chic look helped earn her a longtime design partnership with Opening Ceremony; unsurprising, then, that she occasionally rocks some specs of her own.

Anne Hathaway

In The Princess Diaries, Anne's character Mia loses her thick-rimmed frames to an overzealous, anti-eyewear stylist (yeah, we've maybe watching the movie a few too many times). But in real life, we think she looks damn good in glasses.

Demi Moore

With her dark, center-parted hair and smart-girl glasses, Demi's totally giving us Ali MacGraw vibes.

Christina Hendricks

Why our June/July cover girl's never worn her frames on Mad Men is anyone's guess; seriously, aren't they so Joan?

Cate Blanchett

We adore the contrast between Cate's ultra-pale coloring and her menswear-inspired ensemble—specs included, of course.

The star stylist's oversized glasses might just be his personal signature—along with that bowtie, of course.
