Watch Henry Cavill mourn the loss of his moustache

#ShavedButNotForgotten

Superman actor Henry Cavill has paid tribute to his dearly departed moustache in a tongue-in-cheek Instagram clip.

The actor made headlines last year after he was called back for Justice League reshoots at the same time as he filmed Mission Impossible 6, a role in which his character sports significant facial hair.

Paramount reportedly refused the actor permission to shave off his facial hair – which meant that the production crew behind Justice League were forced to digitally remove the fuzz.

Cavill, now clean-shaved, has appeared to mock the controversy.

“I know, it’s hard to recognise me with King Tache,” he says in a video posted to Instagram. “Sometimes it’s hard for me to recognise myself.”

“This is not CGI. He’s really gone. I can tell you this, though: I will remember him. Always.”

Sharing the video with the hashtag #ShavedButNotForgotten, Cavill then aired a loving tribute to his tache. Watch below.

Cavill recently took to social media to reassure fans that he’s definitely still alive after Google incorrectly suggested that he had died.

British actor Cavill posted a photo to Instagram earlier this month (March 5), along with a screenshot of Google results appearing to list his death as “3 March 2018”. “When you learn that you died 2 days ago…”, Cavill quipped.
