Paul: Beard is so weird

Aaron Paul discusses his new “disguise”.

The Breaking Bad star has grown out his facial hair for upcoming thriller Triple Nine.

And the 34-year-old is having a good time going incognito with the bushy accessory.

“It’s a little different and it’s fun. It’s kind of like a disguise, but it’s so weird that we can actually grow a whole bunch of hair on our face,” he told America’s People magazine.

The actor’s transformation isn’t finished either. Stylists for the movie will also attach eight inches of extensions to the beard and plan to “make it look really mangy looking”, he said.

Fortunately, the star’s wife, Lauren, approves of his new scruffy appearance.

“Yeah, I love it!” she gushed while accompanying him at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Jersey City, New Jersey last weekend.

Aaron and Lauren celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on May 26.

And the actor appears to take every opportunity to gush about his bride.

"Marriage is the greatest thing that has ever happened. Look how cute she is," he told People earlier this month. "[The first year has] flown by – blink of an eye. [We're] going strong.”

Aaron also said he’s “so proud” of the work his wife is doing. Lauren was recently honoured for her work with the Kind Campaign at the Open Hearts Foundation's 4th Annual Gala in Malibu, California.

"The back of my head hurts from smiling so much,” Aaron said at the event. “I always sit back and applaud her on a day-to-day basis...”

The actor, and his beard, will hit cinemas in Triple Nine next year.
