The actor, who depicts the late Queen frontman in upcoming film Bohemian Rhapsody, has revealed he kept a souvenir.
Rami Malek took home the teeth he used to play Freddie Mercury and now keeps them in a "side drawer".
The star takes on the guise of the legendary Queen frontman in Bohemian Rhapsody, which debuts in the UK next month, and in order to pull off his distinctive look he had to wear a set of dentures which mimicked the rock star's prominent teeth.
Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, the Mr Robot star has now revealed he took them home to keep as a souvenir, saying: "I have the teeth now."
Watch a clip of his interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live above.
He added: "I keep them, I will always keep them."
However, asked if he keeps them on display, Malek replied: "No, they're just in a side drawer".

If there’s one rocker who’ll be excited for the release of the biopic it's Foo Fighters drummer and Queen super fan Taylor Hawkins.
The Learn To Fly sticksman is a huge fan of the British band and plays a medley of their biggest tracks, including Under Pressure at Foos gigs.
When the first footage leaked of Rami Malek in the guise of Freddie Mercury during that famous Live Aid gig, Chris Moyles Showed Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins a clip of it, and they were pretty blown away.
