James Harden admits food gets stuck in his beard ‘all the time’

James Harden revealed there is one drawback in particular that comes with sporting the NBA’s most famous beard: Food gets stuck in it “all the time.”

While the notion that “The Beard” has issues with his beard from time to time given its sheer size should be no surprise. And to think the impressive facial hair could complicate eating on occasion makes sense.

However, to hear the NBA MVP frontrunner explain his experiences with dining-related mishaps because of his beard is indeed amusing, as he explains in a recent interview with GQ how it actually can negatively impact his dating habits.

“I get food in this (expletive) all the time,” Harden tells Devin Gordon. “Like, all the time. If it’s people that I don’t know, I won’t eat around ’em. When I’m, like, going on blind dates, I’ll wait till I get around people I actually am comfortable around, because then they’ll tell me I have stuff in my beard. It kinda comes with it. If you wanna look as good as I do.”

Harden obviously would rather sport his magnificent beard than not, so he’ll just have to continue to deal with some of the issues related to rocking it.

And hey, without it, we would have never been able to enjoy this Foot Locker commercial from 2012, among other amusing beard-related hilarity over the years.
