Looks like the Hollywood facial hair trend has hit Nashville too! Tim McGraw has already proven that he’s just fine with changing up his famous good looks for a movie role — the country star shaved his goatee to play Sandra Bullock’s husband in The Blind Side and packed on the pounds for his part in Four Christmases — but count his latest transformation as a fashion don’t in the eyes of his daughters. “My daughters don’t like it at all, especially the oldest [12-year-old Gracie],” McGraw told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton of the full beard he’s grown for his role co-starring with Gwyneth Paltrow in Love Don’t Let Me Down. Gracie’s assessment? “You look old!’” Tim explained, “And I said, ‘Thanks a lot. Are you embarrassed for me to be around your friends with a beard?’ And she says, ‘There’s a lot of gray in there, Dad!’” Joked McGraw, “I told her I was gonna grow it out and do a big beard combover and try to get it over the top of my head.” In the movie, which began filming in Nashville this week, McGraw plays husband and manager to Paltrow’s country singer, and he says Paltrow impressed him with her pipes. “She’s a really good singer,” he says. “You’re going to be surprised at how well she sings.” –Eileen Finan
