Belgian political crisis gets 'hairier'

Text size Aa Aa

Belgium’s political crisis is getting even hairier after one actor’s rallying cry to his countrymen to stop shaving until they get a new government.

Comedian Benoit Poelvoorde wants his fellow citizens to grow beards until French and Dutch-speaking parties agree upon a coalition deal.

Many other famous Belgians have sported facial hair.

They include King Leopold II, baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens and Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone.
