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?

What an obscene, vulgar, and extremely offensive statement for him to make about why he cut his hair. I’m amazed he even knows who Jesus is. Sad, sad, sad.

Never did think he was a stud.Stick with someone your own age. He is a twin. kind of a smart ass.

Why is Ashton even relevant?
He is a teenager in a 31 year old body. He’s not funny, can’t act and lack serious judgement…
Why did he marry demi moore when he knew age difference…a cheat is a cheat is a cheat….

He looks like a young Dr. Oz!!!

And Charlie Sheen COULD act? Give me a break. Ashton is much better looking than Charlie and funnier than Charlie. Charlie was a jack ass, so get over it.

I love him so much. I think he is funny as anything
in his movies!! I loved his smile too. However,
his hair is still just too long for me here.
