Los Angeles, July 27 (IANS) Actor Henry Cavill has taken a pot shot over all the hubbub surrounding his mustache.
The situation was sparked when the 34-year-old grew facial hair for his new role in the upcoming Paramount Pictures film “Mission: Impossible 6”, which caused problems for Warner Bros and its “Justice League” re-shoots, as he plays clean-shaven Superman in it.
According to reports, Paramount was refusing to let him shave, forcing Warner Bros to employ state-of-the-art digital trickery to erase his face fur.
Cavill on Wednesday posted a behind-the-scenes shot from the set of “Mission: Impossible 6” on Instagram, but he insisted it was something else, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“Dear followers, it is time to finally set the record straight in this mustache fiasco. Pictured above is not a set on ‘MI6’, but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity known as ‘Henry Cavill’s Mustache’,” Cavill wrote alongside the image.
“There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the ‘Justice League’ re-shoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic mustache.”
“It is not a question of if I should shave — it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us,” he added.
