“That’s my moustache, man! That’s my moustache,” Bernthal laughed. “Not only that, I kept it. We got shut down for six months and I kept that moustache.”

And while keeping the moustache might have seemed like a good idea, it sounds like his family had other thoughts.

“And my kids, man — little Billy Bernthal — would tug on that moustache every day,” Bernthal added. “My wife would not make out with me for six months. But I believed in the spirit of this film so much. I took so much crap for that moustache.”

Asked if he was just worried he wouldn’t be able to grow it back, he said, “I just believed in the movie, man. You know what I mean? It’s dedication.”
