You Won't Believe What Type Of Hair Was Used For Dwayne Johnson'
Dwayne Johnson was shocked when he found out what kind of hair was used to make his "Hercules" beard.

The actor was forced to spend three hours in the make-up chair every day to portray the Greek demigod, and the process got him thinking about what exactly was being put on his face.

And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that.' But I have to get bigger. (The filmmakers) kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.'"

Johnson can get away with it in comedy, but definitely not in a dramatic piece which this film is.
