The Guardian interviews Brolin about why he fought with producers to let him grow a goatee for the film Labor Day.
For some reason, my face, when I have a goatee, is pretty fucking scary. Even just in my life, I can see how it affects people. I mean, I don’t have tattoos any more. I used to have a lot of tattoos. And I remember being in business meetings with these dumb jailhouse tattoos and I would see how people reacted. They were always very freaked out.
