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.

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? Share your thoughts below!

I like the trimmed look. It looks so much cleaner.

This is what People call “fresh new look”?? Lmao. Love Jared, but I clicked to see if he cut all of his hair off and shaved.. silly me, i thought that would be considered fresh and new. Lol

Do not think he looks good with long hair… That’s not saying I never find long hair on a dude attractive but in his case, I think he could use a cut!

New look? Really?

Stubble. The full beard makes him look like he’s on Duck Dynasty. He’s a good-looking guy but you’d never see it under the hair.

Kimberly on

I’d take him either way!

Iona on

He’s GORGEOUS, doesn’t matter.

Ugh – I wish he’d cut his hair already! He looks gorgeous with short hair! I do prefer the trimmed beard too, over the photo on the left.
