Just in time for Movember

Nick Jona's wife Priyanka Chopra was a fan of the moustache her husband grew for his role in new movie Midway. The Jonas Brothers star spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of the movie, in which he stars as aviation machinist mate Bruno Gaido during the attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent Battle of Midway during World War II, on Tuesday, where he confessed his facial hair was a hit with his actress wife.

"She liked it. Her father had a moustache, and so she was into it," the Sucker hitmaker revealed. "And then I said, 'I'm taking this off the minute I wrap,' and then she was like, 'You know what? I realise I don't like this as much as I thought I did.'"

Nick went on to laugh about his inability to grow facial hair, noting the moustache "did need some darkening".

However, the star admitted he's proud to appear in the new film, gushing: "I was honoured to be a part of it and to be a part of telling this story that I'm not sure a lot of people know about. And so, putting a spotlight on something like this is really special."

Midway debuts in theatres on Friday.
