When Jamie Dornan, a.k.a. Mr. Christian Grey, revealed his defined 'stache on Instagram, vocal followers touted "hipster" and "'70s porn." With a simple hashtag, the 50 Shades of Grey actor made it clear that the upper lip hair was crucial for his role in upcoming film Jadotville, where he plays an Irish Commandant in the 1960s. Since Dornan's filming with a mustache days are apparently over, fans are pondering whether he is keeping the facial hair as a disguise, while others are requesting that he lose it entirely.
