Jared Leto beardWireImage (2) editors have a collective crush on Jared Leto. We love his hair, his style, even the way he flips pancakes. And we really hope he continues to get nominated for major awards every year, so we can closely monitor his every move — like his latest decision to trim down his beard.

The actor has been sporting full facial hair on the red carpet since January, but Monday he debuted a new grooming pattern, stepping out with just a shadow of stubble. “I cut off my beard!” the Dallas Buyers Club star captioned the below shot on Instagram.

I cut off my beard. #proof

Okay, so he’s not completely clean-shaven, but we think the Oscar nominee’s close trim shows off his bone structure better. And the subtle stubble is way hotter than the bare-face look he had going on back in 2006 (in our opinion anyway). What do you think of the actor’s new facial hair? Do you miss his full beard?

He didn’t cut it off, he trimmed it. It’s hardly a “new look” when the shape and everything else is still the same.

He needs to cut his hair, he looks like a girl. Bruce Jenner is jealous!

I don’t even notice his facial hair because I can never stop looking at his eyes — they are captivating!

I am so sick of the “Duck Dynasty” look! The full beard and long hair look un groomed and gross! Most woman hate kissing men with facial hair! It’s like pubic hair all over their face and it’s just lazy and dirty looking. It’s a bummer when handsome men cover their face with all that frickin’ hair!!

Now, get a ‘fresh, new’ hair style to go with the trimmed up facial hair. I like long hair on guys, but this one needs a style.

I love the trimmed up facial hair, but he really needs to cut the hair.
