LOS ANGELES: Some of Hollywood's biggest stars are partnering with men's health charity, Movember, to champion the moustache and encourage people to get involved in this year's fundraising campaign.
Moustache Facts features comedians Stephen Fry and Stephen Merchant, actor David Oyelowo, adventurer and survival expert Bear Grylls, fashion expert Tan France, and former Pussycat Doll and self-confessed Mo fanatic, Nicole Scherzinger.
The celebrities are encouraging men to join history's iconic hairy upper lips by growing their own Mo's to raise funds and awareness for Movember.
Stephen Merchant said The sexiest men who ever lived all have moustaches Tom Selleck, Burt Reynolds, the Swedish chef from the Muppets. Feel sexy by growing a Mo this Movember and help to change the face of men's health.
Bear Grylls said Of all the things I've done in my career, taking the plunge and growing a moustache has resulted in the most response from folk around the world. Of course, in the wild, a hairy upper lip is an essential for warmth and stealth - so this Movember - join us and grow a Mo. Because whatever you grow will save a bro.
Having battled a bipolar disorder and surviving prostate cancer himself, Stephen Fry is passionate about raising awareness for Movember's cause areas.
Fry said Movember is something very close to my heart. I've been personally affected by two of their three main cause areas, so how could I not get involved and support their work? It's so important we talk about men's health issues, and growing a Mo is a great way to spark those conversations. History shows some of the most successful men in the world had moustaches - don't miss out on your chance to be one of them.
Movember encourages men around the world to embrace the moustache in every glorious form. The itchy one, the patchy one or even the lopsided one - they all help fight prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male suicide. Whether men fly solo or join up with a team, adding hair to their upper lip raises funds and awareness for vital men's health issues.
Mo Bros should sign up at www.movember.com/mofact and start with a clean-shaven face on Friday, November 1st. After that, it's as simple as growing and grooming a moustache for the rest of the month. Remember, no beards. Then ask friends, family, or colleagues to support their Mo by donating on Movember.com.
