Hollywood actor Jason Lee deeply regrets growing a moustache for his character in new TV show MY NAME IS EARL, because the facial hair has become highly irritating.

Lee decided to get into character for the comedy by growing a thick moustache - and it's already become a nuisance.

He says, "It was my idea to have it for the show. I thought it would be a good character choice and I love that I'm bringing it back to TV.

"I get food in it and I have to trim it every week. It's a bit of a pain... It's just getting longer and longer, no matter how much I trim it."
