Dave Bautista often gets makeup stuck in his "butt hair" when shooting for the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' films.

The 48-year-old actor has admitted he is often forced to trim the strands on his derriere because the cosmetic products he dons for his role as Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel movie franchise sometimes get "stuck" in his nether region when it's time to wash them off.

Speaking to Empire magazine, the semi-retired professional wrestler said: "I was just discussing my butt hair with my wife last night. When I play Drax [in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'], I take off all the make-up in a sauna and it runs into my butt crack. Some it will get stuck in my butt hair, so the less hair I have the better."

And because the 'Blade Runner 2049' star carries out regular ablutions, he considers himself to be "about a three or four" on a scale of how hairy he is, with 10 being very hirsute.

He said: "Fortunately, I'd say that on the scale I'm about a three or four. I don't have a thick coating of fur."

Despite stripping himself of his hair, the hardman believes the "bunch" of scars he has acquired over the years from his previous fighting days makes him more masculine, although he claims people think the permanent marks on his face are wrinkles.

Speaking about the wounds he has racked up over the years, he said: "I have a bunch, obviously. Two on the bridge of my nose, in a criss-cross, which I think people just think is a wrinkle. I got kicked and elbowed in the head."
