Milo Ventimiglia caused quite a stir last week when he shaved off his signature “This Is Us” beard and moustache, leaving many fans to wonder what this meant for Jack Pearson.
ET’s Denny Directo caught up with Ventimiglia at the NAACP Awards on Saturday, where the 39-year-old actor was still adapting to his clean-shaven look. “It’s a little cold,” he joked to ET.
Ventimiglia admitted that the physical transformation has even affected his interactions with his co-stars and crew.
“The funny thing is, they got so used to the moustache that now I walk around with no moustache and they don’t recognize me anymore,” he shared, confirming that the bare face is for “This Is Us”. “So I got a couple days of anonymity, which is nice.”
Ventimiglia’s TV son, Justin Hartley, joked that he would now be growing a massive beard.
“Since he has shaved his, maybe I will grow one,” Hartley said, jokingly. “I can grow one and he can get rid of his.”
When told of Hartley’s proposal, Ventimiglia was all for the facial hair swap.
“Think that would be awesome,” he said. “That guy can do no wrong. He is one of the most beautiful men you’ve ever seen in your life.”
Last Thursday, Ventimiglia posted a pic of himself sitting in a black muscle car, teasing, “Jack way back when,” suggesting that fans will be seeing the Pearson patriarch in his young glory days.
“This Is Us” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
