“Jesus wanted [his look] back so I gave it to him,” Kutcher joked of his clean-shaven face and short hair at a PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles Monday.
In reality, it was the show’s writers — not divine intervention — that were responsible for Kutcher’s new look: his character, Walden Schmidt, was introduced in the CBS series’ ninth season premiere with long locks and a shaggy beard that have since disappeared.
“We wanted to tell a story about being in a relationship and being pressured to change,” show creator Chuck Lorre said of Walden’s budding relationship with Zoey (Sophie Winkleman). “Walden pushed back and said, ‘You can’t change me. This is who I am.’ But once she stopped trying he got a haircut and changed.”

It’s been a while since we’ve seen this side of Ashton Kutcher — or should we say, this face! The actor debuted a clean-cut new look at the Television Critics Association Tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Wednesday, revealing his freshly shaved face and trimmed tresses.
Speaking with Two and a Half Men costar Jon Cryer, Kutcher beamed while discussing upcoming episodes of the series, and mentioned that his new look is related to the show. “Tune in Monday,” he hinted.
As if Sao Paulo isn’t sizzling enough, some of the world’s hottest models and one very hunky Hollywood actor turned up the heat during Fashion Week in the Brazilian capital. Gisele Bündchen, the face of Colcci, opened the brand’s show to cheers and screams in a sexy bustier and hot pants. Bundchen tells PEOPLE exclusively, “I have walked in the Colcci show six years in a row. I have grown with the brand that started out in jeans and is now a top selling fashion brand throughout Brazil. The show is always fun and I look forward to doing it each year.” And while Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio took to the runway in a variety of sexy styles, it was Colcci’s newest face, Ashton Kutcher, who closed out the show, turning up on the runway for a final walk with Bündchen and brand director Jeziel Moraes. And in case Ashton got cold feet strutting his stuff after a hiatus from modeling, he had plenty of support in the front row from his biggest fan — wife Demi Moore, who brought her youngest daughter Tallulah along. The party continued after the show as the couple dined with Gisele and made an appearance at an exclusive party at the Kiss N’ Fly club, where they danced to electronic music. “I’m just a normal guy. I try to know how things work in the countries I go to so I can be as natural as possible,” Ashton told the Folha de São Paulo newspaper. — reporting by Dom Phillips and Charlotte Triggs

Tapping the minds and deep pockets of famous friends like Ashton Kutcher, Mandy Moore and James Franco, Edward Norton is getting in the holiday spirit this season through his charitable giving site, Crowdrise.com. “People like to do nice things for each other and have fun around the holidays, so we put this together in that spirit,” Norton said of the site’s new campaign, Crowdrise Holiday Fundraiser Thing (CHFT). Meant to “peer pressure” the world into fundraising, Crowdrise gives members the opportunity to join a team and a cause, like Paul Rudd’s for the American Cancer Society, to help raise money. And if supporting a specific charity with the help of your favorite star isn’t enough incentive, Norton has also added some stylish holiday shopping to the site from fashionista friends like Kristen Bell. The actress has teamed with Satya Jewelry to create the Acholi necklace, a 24-carat gold vermeil tree-of-life pendant and peridot gemstone, to benefit Invisible Children, an organization dedicated to ending the use of child soldiers in East Africa. And if you’ve already crossed off jewelry from your shopping list, Will Ferrell’s gift is sure to win you over: a bottle of suntan lotion with a nude shot of the actor on the front—for his Cancer for College campaign, of course! To join your own fundraising team, or visit crowdrise.com because everyone’s doing it! –Jessie Goldberg
