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.
We’ve long known that Leto’s hair is magnificent (we even thought it might rival Connie Britton’s) but the Dallas Buyer’s Club star appeared to have been sampling a new hair product at the black-tie event — his ombré mane appeared thicker, shinier and more luxurious than ever before. A nicely trimmed beard completed the glam-rock effect.
Pitt, on the other hand, managed to out-hipster Leto with his new look, an old-timey rockabilly style that was extra-short on the sides and super-long and slicked-back on top. Shine was added via hair cream or pomade — and if it weren’t for the tux, he would have fit right in in N.Y.C.’s Williamsburg or L.A.’s hip Silver Lake neighborhoods.
And finally, whatever hair product Pitt left in the jar, Gyllenhaal scooped up for his newly long mane. Fortunately, he left the bun behind (it doesn’t really go with a nice suit), but all that extra hair had to go somewhere — and in this case, it was right into a curly ducktail at the nape of his neck. If his newest film doesn’t work out, he may consider auditioning for Grease 3.
What do you think of these mega-hotties and their bold new dos?
