Miley Cyrus isn’t the only star going from a pixie to a bob with a little help from fake hair. Daniel Radcliffe has undergone a similar transformation, though his new look isn’t for fashion’s sake — it’s for a role.

Keith Urban is almost as recognizable for his frosty, shaggy, demi-mullet as he is for his country jams, so even the smallest cut to his famous mane registers as strongly as Samson losing a lock of his hair to Delilah.
But cut it he did. On Tuesday, he took to Twitter to share his sexy new shorter cut. His bangs and part part seem to be still be in place, but the party in the back is no more, and he appears to have gone for an allover darker color (though fear not, a few well-placed golden highlights still shine in his piecey front layers).
But there’s one rite of passage that it seems nearly all Sexiest Men Alive (well, pre-2010, anyway) have gone through, and one we think they won’t be returning to again: the saucy male turtleneck. Below, we investigate past Sexiest Man Alive winners and their high-neck moments, and take bets as to whether this onetime SMA staple will be making a resurgence on 2013′s Sexiest Man when he’s unveiled.

There was plenty to talk about at Saturday night’s Governors Awards in L.A. Angelina Jolie thanked her family as she accepted a humanitarian award. Jennifer Garner, Amy Adams and more turned up the high-wattage glamour in gorgeous gowns. Maddox Jolie-Pitt wore a tux and it was adorable. But for our money, the most buzzworthy moments were happening on the heads of three of Hollywood’s hottest men: Jared Leto, Brad Pitt and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Oh, Rob. Sweet, sweet, silly Robert Pattinson. We know you’re going through a confusing time right now, what with your new flirtations and old loves reportedly back in your life. And maybe, in your emotional turmoil, you started shaving your face and then turned away from the mirror in disgust halfway through. Or perhaps one boo likes your face bearded and the other prefers it clean-shaven, so you’re hedging your bets. Or could it be that you just misunderstood the directions for Movember?
Whatever the reason, this fuzzy chin strap is not your best look. Oh, sure, we know you’re not vain. There’s been this, and this, and especially this to prove that point. But when you’ve been blessed with a lantern jawline, highlighting the pointiest part of it isn’t manly — it’s sort of “Lord of the Rings Elfin Extra.” And as we all know, you are no extra in sci-fi/fantasy films. You’re the Leading Man.
You know how Jon Hamm is so smokin’ hot that he could wear practically anything and it wouldn’t diminish his general gorgeousness? Well, he’s putting that theory to the test with this particular facial hair choice.
It’s not that Zach Galifianakis doesn’t have his own charms, but we definitely have never said “You know what we want Jon Hamm to look more like? That funny guy from the Hangover movies.” We’ve never watched an episode of Mad Men and thought to ourselves, “He looks so darn good in a classic suit. If only he’d cover half his face with an overgrown, scruffy and gray-speckled beard.” And we certainly have never wished he’d show up on the Emmys red carpet in a tux and a bushy mustache.
Because we have to give credit where it’s due, we’ll give Hamm props for his well-coiffed hair and fit figure in that great white tux. And as always, his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt looked terrific. But oh, that beard. We’re speechless, so please share your own thoughts about it in the comments.

Has True Blood star Ryan Kwanten been secretly hanging out with Brad Pitt? It sure seems like it, because the 36-year-old star pulled a Pitt and also debuted a new, clean-shaven look this week.
The star arrived at the Toronto Film Festival on Tuesday to promote his latest movie, The Right Kind of Wrong — but he ended up promoting a shaved head, shaved beard and mustache, too.
And gah! We still can’t decide how we feel about Kwanten’s new locks (or, rather, lack thereof). While we’re certainly going to miss the star’s signature shag, we also must admit: The man looks hot. Perhaps we will just have to leave it up to the ladies of Bon Temps to decide.
Well, and you. What do you think of Kwanten’s new look?
