VOTE! Brad Pitt Shaves His Beard: What's His Best Look?

Jon Furniss/WireImag; Flynet

It looks like Brad Pitt is finally cleaning up his act. The superstar, who started trimming his year-old facial hair a month ago, was snapped on the set of his new movie Moneyball in Los Angeles Monday completely clean shaven! And while Pitt had famously dispelled rumors that he’d been growing the facial hair for a movie role, telling the U.K. newspaper Sun, “It’s boredom. No other reason that that.” It was this new role, as Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane, that finally led the 46-year-old star to buzz it all off. While we were starting to get used to the rugged look, we’re certainly glad to see Pitt’s shining good looks come out from under all that hair. Tell us: Are you happy that Brad Pitt buzzed off his facial hair? Or did you like the bearded look? Vote!

It’s better. He’s older. Who’s watching the kids with mom and pop working all the time?

Laurie on

Much better Brad…;)

Pam on

It’s about time!!! Brad, you look so much better!

Juanitaville on

Brad Pitt is a very handsome man. That scraggly beard detracted from that gorgeous face of his.

bj ragland on

THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry Brad, but why on earth are you hiding that beautiful face……. the world thanks you for shaving.

Laine on

Brad looks amazing whether he sports scruff or not. He is the most beautiful man I have ever seen!!

Angel on

He looks 1000 percent better…Glad to have the sexiest man alive back.

nancyp on

Brad’s best isn’t even mentioned. “Legends of the Fall” presents Brad as the most beautiful leading man ever on film. No ‘stache or ‘tee, but the long blonde hair absolutely did it for me.

Imelda Agbayani-Estrelles on

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAN ALIVE IS BACK!!! I like your blond long hair BUT NOT THE LONG BEARD. Love your family too, Angelina and the kids, GOD BLESS

Tammy on

Thank you Brad. Now I will marry you.

Flam3z on

He looks a lot younger without the beard.

Carole on

Thank you Brad. Please keep it this way, you look so much better.

emily on

he looks much, much, much younger now.

Katherine on

Looks younger and also less like a vagrant. Thank goodness he’s shaved that mess off his face!

Joan on

The beard ruined his looks. He is a very handsome man.

carrie on

The beard makes him look like the singing goat in that cartoon movie Hoodwinked.

Suzanne on

Can’t stand Brad to begin with. I think he’s completely over-rated and extremely unattractive. I wish he’d have kept the beard and let it grow over his face

rodesa on

so much better…

Arlyn Sams on

When did Brad begin to look old?

zina on

who cares he is over rated. this is why any english speaking people have no idea what their government is doing and haiti is not on the papers. in ten years time his looks will fade and the world will be a worse place but you will be not notice because you are being lied to, you find this amusing cause you are in a cage (mentally) and your right are being taken’ away bit by bit. have you notice why the news has become a gossip instead or real reportings and any paper has so be licensed if there is freedom of speech and as soon as someone says anything that make sence they are throw to the lions.

Angie on

He is and always will be the sexiest being on earth, with or without a beard!!!!!!

Debbie on

It much better it did not do anything for him he is a handsome man and he did not need that beard to make him look bad and older.

Debbie on

It is much better without the beard he is a handsome man and he did not need the beard to make him look older.

Meso on

Oh,Thank god! Finally! All this while with the beard, whenever I saw him I could only wonder about whether rumours about his BO were true and if they were, how he looks like he could smell like cheese.

Valerie on

clean shaven, yes! His square jawline is his best feature I think. Studies have proven that people think square faced people are more attractive and more trustworthy. He simply looked old and worn out with that gray facial growth.

Becky on

I think he looks way better WITH the beard. He looks like he’s relaxed and comfortable with himself. I didn’t knew that he did it just for a movie… but okay, I still think the beard rocks. :D

meli24 on

clean shaven, ofcourse, that awful beard had to go and thank god it did. he was starting to look like a bumb and a hobo with that beard he had goin’ on for awhile, the kids probably thought wow, i have a homeless man as my father, wow. i betcha for awhile people were trying to give him money, i would have if i’d see him. he just looks old and worn out with that old scruffy beard he had goin’ on and now thankfully its gone. can’t wait to see his new movie he’s working on though.

kristan on

he looks so much better clean shaven. he looked 20 years older with the beard.

ellen on

the homeless drifter look wasn’t working out for him. Glad to see that handsome face again

Karen B. on

I love me some facial hair – when it’s clean and maintained. Brad did not have a beard. He had a chinchilla on his chin.

janie on

I am sure one of their many nannies is watching the kids… not to worry..

Joanna on

@zina i agree with you, but it is not entirely a cage so long as there are people, however much the minority, who agree with you and any honest views. We are not in 1984 territory…..yet. : p

Fan on

He looks better without all the facial hair, I believe hee is the most beautiful man alive. I think he looked his best in Meet Joe Black.

shirley on

its about time he shaved it off!

Melissa on

Looks better, but cannot hide the age needs to do a bit of facelifting.

Judy Lamkin on


elaine on

simply brad, so beautiful!

Annie on

Brad Pitt ur so handsome and thank God u have shaved that beard. God bless u and your family

michaela on

He is so much hotter without the beard! When he has so much beard he looks so old! now he looks young! I love it!<3

Pam on

Neither – he looks creepy both ways. Blech.

Choyce2020 on

I too am glad that Brad no longer is sporting that
horrible looking mess of facial hair. Perhaps since he was going to be staying home w/the children he didn’t want to bother w/people recognizing him so he grew the beard. Angelina filmed two movies back to back—Salt & the one w/Johnny Depp. As a couple they have decided that one parent be w/their children at all times when the other parent is working. I think that is a great & fair solution. Now, it’s Brad’s turn to make a movie. Yeyyyy!!!

Cheryl on

I definitely agree with nancyp – brad pitt had it going on in Legions of the Fall. Maybe every women’s dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

carey on

I think that he looks sooooo much better without any facial hair. With it makes him look so old.

Clare on

Looks younger now. Before he looked like a mountain man. He is now back on the Sexist Man Contest.

Bruce on

I am torn about his best look. Thelma and Louise he was HOT!… Legends of the Fall with long hair HOT… So I would say clean shaven Brad…. Shows your beautiful face.

Tawny Cat on

Wow! He’s really a handsome man! I am so sick of scuzzy looking bewhiskered men, especially the “I only bother to shave every few days” look. The only thing worse than the way it looks is the way stubble feels rubbing againt me. I always wonder whether men who don’t shave also don’t brush their teech. Anyway, I recently read some really nice things about this man and his generous heart. It’s good to see him looking so great!

micky dsilva on

He lukz ghosla

Lorelei51h on

I wasn’t real crazy about the beard, but either way he is absolutely gorgeous no matter what. I have to agree about “Legends of the Fall” GROWL!!!!!

xmoves8 on
