Who knew a patch of hair could cause so much controversy, news articles and outcry, but Henry Cavill has managed to do it.
After many months of growing a formidable 'tache, the British actor has taken the bold step to shave it off - and he's taken a moment to remember the good ol days.
Captioning the video with #ShavedButNotForgotten, the Justice League star said: "Don't be alarmed, it's me, Henry Cavill. Sometimes superhero and former secret agent, but now, completely clean shaved.
"I know. It's hard to recognise me without king stache, sometimes I even have trouble recognising myself. It's hard for me to admit, this is not CGI."
Of course, the 34-year-old is bantering about the unforgettable efforts that the digital team behind Justice League went to in order to remove his moustache. You see, Cavill had to sport a decent mo for his upcoming appearance in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

When the production team for Justice League announced they had to reshoot some scenes, Cavill had to repeatedly fly back and forth from the UK to the US to juggle both projects.
Instead of stuffing up the sixth instalment to the Mission: Impossible franchise, Warner Bros. and DC said the actor's facial hair from his Superman character would be removed in post-production. Despite living in a technology rich world, it seems that even our best specialists weren't able to make it look natural.
Cavill told his followers on Instagram about the debacle in July.
Imagine being the person who had to shuffle through every single frame and edit the beard out.
What's even more ridiculous is that Variety reported it cost $25 million, yes, twenty-five fucking million dollars to remove the moustache from the movie and the reshoots took a whopping two months to complete.
It seems that the move has mixed emotions on social media.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in the US on July 27. Filming was delayed after star Tom Cruise injured his right leg during a daring jump across buildings.
It pushed back operations by seven weeks but thankfully it didn't affect the release date.
Thankfully they didn't have to do any editing with any moustaches.
