Breaking beard news: True Blood star Joe Manganiello has taken a razor to his beloved scruff and Wednesday evening, he debuted a smooth, clean-shaven face at the 10th Annual Style Awards in New York City. We hardly recognized him at first, but now that we’ve confirmed that baby-faced man at right is in fact the same person who plays manly-man Alcide on the HBO show, we can’t decide if we should be howling with delight or crying ourselves to sleep over this news.

On the one hand, his bare face does make his big, brown, beautiful eyes stand out even more than they already did. And who knew he was hiding such a chiseled jawbone under that hair? (Not us, because we’ve never touched his face before. Which is just unfair and awful.)

But on the other: That facial hair was just plain sexy.

We’re still unsure as to how we feel about Manganiello ditching the beard. But we know one thing for certain: We wish he’d ditched his shirt too.

Tell us: What do you think of Manganiello’s cleaner look?

Scruff! He looks too preppy with a clean face.

Susan on

I think he looks younger without the beard. Very handsome!

Penelope Fenwick on

Yep, either way!

Denise on

He looks much better with the beard. He looks too plain without it.

Oh sweet beard, I’ll miss you so! Facial hair a must! I like my man scruffy.

Wow. I like it. It makes him look mature but not as in old.
