Faith Hill wasn’t thrilled about making this beauty change for her role in the Paramount+ drama 1883.

The country singer and actress spoke to Shining Vale’s Courteney Cox for Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series, in which she shared that her role in the streaming show — which follows the Dutton family as they gain control of Yellowstone Ranch — required her to grow out her armpit hair to be more authentic to the 19th century time period. She said she first learned she would have to forgo her shaving routine when Taylor Sheridan, the show’s creator, called her husband and co-star Tim McGraw while the two were out at a wedding.

"All due respect to those who love that, and all that freedom, woo!" Hill shared. "But for me, personally, I just don't like it."

Cox said that she couldn’t take the role due to having had laser hair removal on her armpits.

Hill joked, “I don't laser, but I may now, so I never have to do that again. It really grossed me out, I have to say."

While Hill may not have loved the armpit look, she previously complimented the series for its attention to detail in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“Everything was ingeniously designed,” she shared of the costumes. “It was difficult for the men to wear, and really difficult for the women to wear because we had corsets — and they were real corsets. I don’t know how they did it back then. The entire series was very physical, but it allowed us to become these people of 1883. The way we were trained, the saddles, the reins, everything that you saw on the wagons, on the horses … Everything was period-appropriate. To bring this world to life, that was critical, absolutely necessary, and everyone involved did such an amazing job.”

In an April Instagram post, the artist reflected on a different look — one from the first music video she shot with McGraw. Sharing a still from the video, she wrote, “I can’t believe it’s been 25 years since Tim released the single ‘It’s Your Love.’ This was the very first duet we released, and it spent 6 weeks at #1 on the charts. While many more have followed, this one will always hold a special place in my heart. I was pregnant with our first child, Gracie, and I was craving milk shakes. In this behind-the-scenes photo, I was most likely trying to hide the stain on my dress from the milk shake I devoured that day!”
