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?

Jared such a handsome man in his early fourties…so why would any one in his right mind want to look older by having all this facial hair, stuble or full beard, and ugly, stringy, greasy looking long hair like a street person better known as a panhandler????..because he’s in a band..does that make him want to look older for the older generation with hard rock music that doesn’t suit that generation??? Please help me to understand.

I love the NEW look. He is just adorable either way.

This dude is smoking hot. I don’t like young guys or long hair…..except on him. Something about him is super sexy. I use to think he was creepy looking and strange. Now I think he is smart, funny and sexy as all heck.

I love long hair on men, its sexy..and love Jareds hair..hope he keeps it long, it looks good on him. brings out more of his passions and sexiness. so keep the long hair Jared. as far as him shaving off the beard I think he should shave it all off. so we can see more of that gorgeous face of his. but thats just me. still hope he keeps his hair long though. love his long hair. if he cuts it off alot of us long haired lovers might cry. some of us take long hair seriously. but do understand if it needs a bit of trimming from time to time. and understand its more than just the hair. its the mind,body,spirit,soul thing too and those gorgeous eyes of his tend to make some of us that adore him swoon. ya can kinda tell he just has that special something about him.

Unless you are going to have your roots touched-up, keep the hat on!!! Your nice looking, but?

Touch up your roots or just keep the hat on!!
You also should shave that beard so we can see your handsome face more.
