It's Time to Talk About Jared Leto's Facial Hair: Full Beard or Sexy Stubble?

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?

Just cut you hair. It is 1960 horrible.

Loved the beard, love the stubble, love his face! As long as he doesn’t do anything to those eyes, I’m A-OK with his choices!

He’s a handsome man, but he’s venturing dangerously close to looking like Courteney Cox. He’d better keep some sort of facial hair if he wants to make sure people can tell the difference.

I myself think he is VERY unattractive….don’t get why people think he is otherwise.

Sunny on

His eyes are early lose together. Reminds me of Ryan Reynolds.

He needs to cut those ombré locks. They make h look too girly.
