Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro has discovered he has an unspoken bond with homeless men after growing a long beard for his new film.
The actor has grown his facial hair for his role as late revolutionary Che Guevara in upcoming movie Guerilla.
And, though he quite likes the nods he gets from vagrants, he admits the look also presents some problems.
He says, "It makes airports tougher. There's a different line for the dangerous-looking characters. Girls don't check you out as much, and guys look down.
"But it's funny the looks that I get from street people. Suddenly, I'm their brother."
