Sylvester Stallone’s stress levels soared on the set of Tulsa King as he begged fans to “excuse the language” in an emotional post from the set of Tulsa King. “I think I swallowed my moustache!” he exclaimed while his makeup artist burst into peals of hysterical laughter, interrupting his long-awaited chance to play a gangster for the first time in 50 years.
I’m going through the f*****g trash, and if it’s in here, we’re definitely not going to salvage it
Sylvester Stallone on his beard
Warning fans of a “serious dilemma” behind the scenes of the movie, he explained that he had been wearing a fake beard in a bid to channel a man who had spent 25 years in prison.
However, the illusion of his character dissolved when he slipped it off to eat lunch and realised afterwards that it was nowhere to be found.
“I’m going through the f*****g trash, and if it’s in here, we’re definitely not going to salvage it,” Sylvester exclaimed as he rummaged through a bin filled with discarded food.
“I didn’t eat anything that hairy!” he swore solemnly while addressing the camera in a tongue-in-cheek moment.

“It’s gone and it’s nowhere to be seen. Oh my God – maybe my computer ate it,” he continued.
“It’s no joke,” he insisted sternly as his makeup artist continued to laugh with embarrassment, before groaning: “Oh my God – have you lost your marbles?”
Addressing his 15.1 million followers, Sylvester – who also calls himself Sly – wrote a caption explaining how the embarrassing predicament had come about.
“I’m about to do a scene in TULSA KING , where I play a man [who] has been in prison for 25 years and has grown a very long beard,” he wrote.
“Unfortunately we can’t find the LONG mustache I am supposed to wear for this flashback scene… the whole crew is waiting!” he added.
He then playfully called out Fiona Cush, the head of the makeup department on set, for “having a nervous breakdown”.
“I’m about to join her,” he warned, adding: “Excuse some of the language.”
He concluded: “I thought you might enjoy some of the not so glamorous behind the scenes of movie making!

“Everything does NOT go so smoothly as one would imagine.”
Eventually Fiona triumphantly fished out the beard from the bin, crowing: “Found it!”, but her disclosure didn’t please Sylvester too much.
“I’m not gonna put that on my face – it’s covered in tuna!” he exclaimed, before telling fans: “I gotta go. This is really horrible.”
Sylvester is acting as Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi, a New York-based mafia character who has just been released after a 25-year spell in jail, hence the long and dramatic beard.
He’s sent to Oklahoma by his mob family to get back to business, but fears they may not have his best interests at heart.
The role was a long awaited dream come true for Sylvester, who recently admitted he had been trying desperately to land a mobster role for years.
He was turned down for The Godfather back in the 1970s, despite pleas to production staff to make him an extra in the iconic film.
“I went to Paramount, and said, ‘Can I be an extra in the wedding scene?” he recalled to Empire magazine.
“They said, ‘Yeah, we don’t know if you’re the type of guy’… [but] Finally I get my gangster shot 50 years later, and that’s perfect.”
Clearly the new role hasn’t been without its hiccups, but Sylvester prides himself on being undeterred, and declared: “Everything comes to those who wait.”
