Let's Talk About What's Happening on the Faces of These Super-Hot Guys

08/19/2014 at 05:21 PM ET

We’re not sure where to start with these photos of the most recent facial hair updates from Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto and Brody Jenner (from left), so we guess we’ll just leave this photo right here and let you marinate in it for a bit.

Ready to discuss? Our thoughts: It’s not Movember, so they’re not being bullied into questionable facial hair for a good cause. Mercury’s not in retrograde. Sure, it’s summer vacation, but wouldn’t thick, bushy beards be an unwelcome sensation at the beach? Did Hugh Jackman get too much attention for his most recent beard move? Or perhaps these guys are just sick of being too darn conventionally handsome and they want to see who they attract with these follicular decisions?

RELATED PHOTOS: Obsessed or hot mess?

We knew DiCaprio was venturing into new “hair-itory” with his man bun, but this artfully sculpted, almost elfin beard is a whole new level of grooming we weren’t prepared for — especially when paired with a nice suit.

Leto, on the other hand, is always going for a “casual Jesus” look, so his beard and flowing locks is a little less unexpected. But that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t appreciate a little trim here and there, perhaps some pomade to keep flyaways in place. He can pull pretty much anything off thanks to that irresistible head of hair and those piercing blue eyes, but if he’s going to cover them up with a hat and sunglasses, then all bets are off.

And then there’s Jenner, for whom we can’t even make an excuse. This mustache/goatee combo barely worked on AJ McLean during his prime Backstreet Boy years and currently is not working on Guy Fieri. It’s like the human facial hair equivalent of Pepe le Pew, and we only mean that as a sort-of compliment. We’re pretty sure it’s some kind of in joke that we’re on the outside of, but if not, Brody, may we strongly suggest a facial hair consult with Khloe? She’ll give it to you straight.

Let’s be clear: We’re not facial hair-averse in the least (hi, Ryan Gosling, Jon Hamm and George Clooney! Call us!). We’re just having strong reactions to these ones in particular. So…thoughts? Are you loving them or are you ready to go in with a razor and soap?

Leo’s not aging gracefully. Looking more like Marlon Brando with his puffy round face.

JP on

Leo, Jared are not attractive at all.

frkcilla on

Leo reminds me of a younger version of Jack Nicholson. But no to all 3 styles. Long beards are disgusting. And a pornstache is never a good idea. All 3 looks better with a 2-day beard.

Lacey on

That beard makes Leo look ancient. Jared, well who can resist that? As for Brody, he is hot hot hot, but if he ends up looking like his dad, YIKES!

Abby on

Ummm, No

Tracey on

Gote’s are much sexier than the full beards. By the way, how come a lot of the labeled sexy to most beautiful male Hollywood stars rarely wear this kind of bearded style? I will still say a lot of them DO NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEMSELVES lLOOK MORE APPEALING, especially Jared.

I love facial hair, but not like this

Shara on

Brody looks like George Michael. Jared looks like he stepped out of an episode of Duck Dynasty. Leo looks unkempt. And I’m not a person adverse to men’s facial hair.

trost on

Jared looks bohemian cool . Leo looks so puffy hope it’s for a role because he looks unattractive and unhealthy . The other guy is be trying out for the village people reunion .

WJ on

Yikes! All such good looking guys and way too much hair covering it all up. Jared has been doing the homeless look for a while now. Leo, I can only imagine, is doing this for a role. Brody? I have no idea why Brody is doing this. LOL!
