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?

I hated that shaggy, dirty hair look Ashton had going on for awhile. Thank goodness, he looks wonderful clean shaven and a short haircut. Keep it going.

Not an Ashton fan. It matters not.

He looks so different, better, but older. Something about him makes him look far older than his actual age. I don’t care for his acting, or him as a person, from what I read about him. However, perhaps he will grow from his mistakes (cheating on his ex-wife), and all of the partying, and will now live the life of a mature man. I wish him well.

There is not a single thing attractive about AK, inside or out. He is still married and already involved with another female who couldn’t hope to compare herself to lovely Demi Moore. AK is bad/outdated news.

Why is this tool relevant?

What a jerk this guy is. And he’s looking worse for the wear. What goes around, comes around.

I like the clean cut look better.

well, if he had Tom Cruises’ acting talents & looks, 2.5 men might be good. but it’s NOT. boring, silly come to mind. as far as his short hair goes: not attractive. since leaving Demi: he looks even less attractive.
