Justin Bartha Waxed Everything

To prepare for the role of punk icon Stiv Bators in the upcoming film Cbgb, The Hangover’s Justin Bartha thought it’d be best to get rid of all his body hair. So he waxed it all off.

They took the Jew right out of me… I got it all waxed, baby! Stiv used to do some drugs and drive down the highway and they (bandmates) used to moon people while they were driving… He also gets oral sex onstage (in the movie).

“Normally, I have some hair on my body and I knew I would have to lose some weight (to play Bators), and on the way to the gym there was a sign that I would pass everyday that was for a waxing place… I had to do it.”

But he admits his first, and possibly last, full waxing was a humiliating experience: “You go into this room with a woman that clearly does this everyday… I did my arms and my chest and then I was like, ‘Can I please have the between-the-cheeks,’ and she was like, ‘Sure, flip over!’ as if I asked for a piece of gum… It was humiliating.”

I feel sorry for the girl who had to do the waxing. She probably didn’t wake up that day thinking she’d be staring at some guy waving his hair ass in her face. That’s the kind of thing that makes you really rethink your life. Although, it could have been way more humiliating. Especially if the next words to come out of her mouth were, “Did you forget to wipe?”
