There’s no denying that Jai Courtney has an interesting beard for his role as Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad, but how he got that beard is even more interesting.

While speaking to HitFix about his new movie Terminator Genysis, Courtney was asked about his new beard. Courtney explained that the beard wasn’t his idea, and that Suicide Squad director David Ayer personally shaved it for him. “David Ayer came into the makeup room and just picked up the clippers and started shaving me,” he explained.

Check out the video interview above for the full story. It’s pretty funny. Ayer seems like a badass director. I mean… just look at him! (he’s the one on the left that isn’t smiling)
