Bringing the stache back

Now if the ‘stache is good enough for Brad Pitt then it should be good enough for my special lady friend, right?  I mean if Angelina can get down why can’t women everywhere embrace the hairy upper lip?

“That’s my goal,” the actor, 44, told Extra at the Monday screening of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in New Orleans. “I don’t think ‘staches are respected enough.”

The star has been sporting the facial hair while shooting war flick Inglourious Basterds.

Added Pitt: “It’s political. It’s a political statement.”

I’m not buying political, but it is a statement of awesomeness.

    Duly noted. I'm patiently waiting for the full beard to come in. At this rate I might be 35 before that happens. Back in college I could have sworn it would have happened by now – how's that for jumbled tenses?

    Also you should have really gone for the "Pitt-iful" pun. I'm generally against puns but you were so close, it was there for the taking!

    Perhaps if you were rich and wildly successful, “your special lady friend” would be more willing to allow a little lip fuzz. This also assumes that the oyster editor is capable of creating a worthwhile chunk of hair. Regardless, it’s unfortunate that Pitt is the one attempting a mustache comeback because that pitiful little thing is NOT sexy. When it comes to facial hair, the phrase “go big or go home” has always been a good standard by which to guide a revival effort. No one like the chin pubes or stalker-staches. But almost everyone can appreciate the full, luxurious manliness of mustaches circa Burt Reynolds and Tom Selleck. But fellas, if you really want to make your woman happy – go for the full beard. Timeless and masculine! Recent example: Ryan Hurst as Opie from Sons of Anarchy. Now that’s some hot facial hair!
