It's not "fake", he's just trying to hold himself together and be a more controlled and conscionable person, to stand up to his conflicts and conquer them day after day.
Mike is a f*ckin' warrior, has never been anything less than one.
There's nothing fake about trying to make oneself a stronger, better man and role model to one's kids, paesano.
Watch him embrace old ladies with full, unguarded warmth on the streets of Merthyr when he went there to honor the Bionic Bantam - there isn't a fake bone in the man.
