Damian Lewis grows mustache to spread men’s cancer awareness

Damian+Lewis Homeland star Damian Lewis is growing a mustache to raise money for prostate cancer research and also to prepare for his role in Werner Herzog’s upcoming film Queen of the Desert.

The actor is using his new look to support the Movember movement, during which men all over the world are encouraged not to shave their upper lip for a month.

“I’m actually going to do a film with Werner Herzog just after Christmas, and with Nicole Kidman, and he (his character) is an Edwardian German. Takes place in the First World War and he has an amazing, kind of handlebar mustache… so I started early to try just to try and get there,” Lewis explained.

But even though it’s for a good cause, Damian’s new image is not appealing to his wife. “My wife does not like it. She’s being polite and saying she does,” he added.

    Damian looks cool with moustache to my eyes. Though, I think he will change his look after the Queen of the Desert filming is done. I can understand hat it has to food with the prostate cancer and how this can help, but I support all sorts of movements and charities for the authorities and people with money to pay attention to the existing problem and help. Maybe I should grow moustache too I have two weeks of November left, not sure how much will grow on my face during this period, though.
