Jeff Foxworthy Recalls Wife Pamela's Reaction to Him Shaving His Mustache for the 1st Time in 40 Years – What Was It?
Jeff Foxworthy's signature mustache has been ever-present throughout his adult life. He shaved it for the first time recently, and his wife had the most abrupt reaction.
Foxworthy, 61, explained that he's always been between shows or movies throughout his career. When the coronavirus pandemic arrived, he was finally able to switch up his look. The clip is found below.
FOXWORTHY SHARES WIFE'S REACTION TO NO-MUSTACHE LOOK
For the first time, Foxworthy decided he would take a razor blade to his face and get rid of his trademark mustache. He said nothing to his wife of 35 years, Pamela Gregg.
After the deed was done, Foxworthy said, "I walked out, and [Pamela] looked at me and said, 'Oh wow, grow it back.' " And that was that. Foxworthy received similar sentiments from fans online.
MOST FANS ASKED HIM TO GROW IT BACK, TOO
While some complimented Foxworthy by telling him he looks younger, the comedian noted that "80% of 'em were like, "No, no, no. You are supposed to have a mustache. Grow it back.' "
Clarkson agreed with the feedback. She compared her guest to Tom Selleck, who is also well-known for his mustache. Foxworthy learned that it took two to three weeks for him to regrow his facial hair.
THE MUSTACHE WAS THERE FROM THE BEGINNING
In his Instagram post, the comedian claimed it had been 40 years since he last shaved. In addition to getting a break from filming, Foxworthy claimed he shaved out of boredom during the quarantine.
According to Taste of Country, Foxworthy has been rocking his mustache from the earliest days of his career. His 1993 triple-platinum album, "You Might Be a Redneck If..." saw him sporting the look.
Foxworthy once recalled how he began making his infamous redneck jokes, which he is arguably the king of today. It happened when he visited a Michigan nightclub, which was attached to a bowling alley.
The bowling alley had valet parking, which was a definite sign of rednecks for Foxworthy. It inspired him to write up a list of ways to tell if someone is a redneck.
BRADLEY COOPER'S FANS MISTAKE HIM FOR FOXWORTHY
When he shared the jokes at his stand-up gig, he received a great reaction from the crowd and decided to stick with it. He also kept his mustache.
The 'stache is so well-known that Bradley Cooper's fans compared the actor to Foxworthy when Cooper grew out his facial hair last year. One person genuinely mistook Cooper for the comedian.
