Ashton Kutcher on His Haircut: 'Jesus Wanted His Look Back'

Ashton Kutcher HairKevin Parry for PaleyFest

Charlie Sheen wasn’t the only thing cut from the Two and a Half Men set this season: Ashton Kutcher‘s scruff recently got the ax as well.

“Jesus wanted [his look] back so I gave it to him,” Kutcher joked of his clean-shaven face and short hair at a PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles Monday.

In reality, it was the show’s writers — not divine intervention — that were responsible for Kutcher’s new look: his character, Walden Schmidt, was introduced in the CBS series’ ninth season premiere with long locks and a shaggy beard that have since disappeared.

“We wanted to tell a story about being in a relationship and being pressured to change,” show creator Chuck Lorre said of Walden’s budding relationship with Zoey (Sophie Winkleman). “Walden pushed back and said, ‘You can’t change me. This is who I am.’ But once she stopped trying he got a haircut and changed.”

So what does Kutcher think of his new look?

“I actually was enjoying looking homeless,” he joked.

“People just gave him quarters,” added costar Jon Cryer. Tell us: What do you think of Kutcher’s clean-cut look?

Ashton Kutcher looks like a demon

That’s a horrible thing to say. I’m disappointed in him.

Why is he still around? He plays the same character over and over.

I think he’s a cutie – doesn’t matter if his hair is long or short. Unfortunately, he’ll always be Kelso to me, no matter what role he takes on.

He looks like a troll. Never thought he was good looking or cute at all. And he can’t act.

jojo on

Cue all the CRAZY Christians (I know it’s not all Christians) that will take offense to this comment. Lighten up.

I for one am soooo glad he got rid of that scruff. Clean shaven and nicely groomed hair looks much much better. Now Ashton please spread the word to Brad Pitt too would ya>? Jesus wants his hair and beard back from his scruffy face too. Why hide such handsome faces anyway? To me it just looks like the man is too lazy to groom himself. And I am not talking about those beards that ARE being trimmed and sculpted. But the stars (or men in general) who go around with beards untrimmed, hair going every which way with the scraggly look. Sorry guys it doesn’t look nice it just looks so unkempt and dirty to me. And that’s my opinion…what do you other women think?
