Billy Burke Basks in the Glory of Charlie Swan's Marvelous Mustache
By Bryan Alexander Posted Nov 18th 2009 04:33PM
'Twilight' fans sure do love their favorite character's chief characteristics, and right up their with Edward's sparkling skin, you must surely add Charlie Swan's fine mustache. The 'stache has a life of it's own on the internet (with an appreciative Facebook page for starters), and there were a number of signs paying homage to the glorious growth at 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' premiere on Monday night. "It was a choice I made early on," a freshly-shaven Billy Burke told PopEater about the 'stache's prominent role in the film. "Now I'm stuck with it. I gotta grow it every time."
Easier said than done for the marvel. "It takes a good month and a half to grow to its full posture," says Burke. "It starts with a full beard and then I shave it down to what's necessary."
Still, he's a little confused about mustache adulation. "I don't have a clue (why it's so big)," Burke laughs. "But it's a little disturbing."
There are bonuses for excessive mustache focus though. When Burke wants to escape Twi-hard adulation, it's just a razor away.
"Without the porn star 'stache I'm unrecognizable as Charlie," he admits. "So that's worked well for me."
