Puppy Dog Eyes / Real Life

  • Jared Padalecki has these as a trademark (at least among fans.) He actually has the nickname "Puppy" among Supernatural fans, despite being six foot four. There's a reason for this.
  • Paul McCartney... though we are quickly moving into basset hound territory.
  • Ringo Starr. These days he keeps them hidden behind a dark-lensed pair of glasses, but they were probably his most noticeable feature in the old days (well, besides the huge schnozz).
  • Funnily enough, cats avert this in real life. If a cat ever opens its pupils really wide like Puss is in the page image, it means the cat is tense and/or excited (as in, just about to attack something — possibly you). The cat's way of enticing a human to do something does not involve much direct eye contact at all — they purr and rub their heads/bodies against you or nearby objects.
    • That is, unless they simply meow/howl at you until you cave in just to shut the cat up. This is a common problem for owners of Siamese and other very vocal breeds.
    • Unless you are this fluffy kitten.
  • Dong Bang Shin Ki's Jaejoong, who's known for his Puppy-Dog Eyes. Can't really help it if he looks like this on a daily basis.
  • Layne Staley had quite a pair.
  • Finnish musician Jesper Anastasiadis.
  • SHINee's main vocal Jonghyun and their youngest Taemin can give pretty good ones. Leader Onew could be added, but he's mostly described as a bunny.
  • Some real life dogs, regardless of age, can pull this trope off pretty well.
  • Baby jumping spiders. Even an arachnophobe might look at this and go "d'awwww!"
