PeopleStyleWatch.com 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!
