Matt Damon or Jake Gyllenhaal: Who Looks Better Bald?

Matt Damon and Jake Gyllenhaal are proving that bald is indeed beautiful. The actors have both been spotted sporting shaved heads recently, and we can’t say we mind! Damon showed off his new look while heading to the post office in downtown Vancouver on Wednesday. Is the actor trying to go incognito? PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive recently said that unlike his pal Brad Pitt, he doesn’t cause an international incident when he leaves his house — but this haircut could easily create a stir. The day before, Gyllenhaal was photographed on location in Los Angeles where he’s shooting End of Watch; the actor shaved his head to play the role of an LAPD officer opposite Michael Peña. Gyllenhaal, who previously rocked a hairless head for the film Jarhead, confidently pulls off the no-locks look. But, who wears — or doesn’t wear — his bald head best? Tell us: Who do you think should win the battle of the balds? –Alla Byrne

well, aside from the scrunchy old man face he’s making, i would have to say jake….although both of them deffinately look better with hair than they do without.

I think it’s genius that you chose a photo of Matt giving a “gimme a break, I’m way hotter hands down” look aimed directly at perfect eye level to Jake, who’s giving the “this is how I make sexy face” look. Once again People, who have given me my laugh for the day. They’re both hot.
