It’s safe to say that Jared Leto could’ve used a little dry shampoo on his long locks in recent weeks but that being said, there’s no denying he had a head of hair most women — and many men — coveted.
Alas, that is no longer the case. Because Jared just broke all our hearts by chopping off his dazzling ‘do — all for the sake of art. OK, not art, per se. Unless you consider Suicide Squad art (which we’re sure many of you DC Comics lovers do).
Leto took to Instagram on Monday to unveil his new look and not only did Jared hack off his hair but he also shaved off his glorious beard as well, causing many fans to don black, light a candle and begin the mourning process.
Suicide Squad director David Ayer tweeted that the devastating move is for Leto’s role as The Joker but it’s still not OK. Couldn’t Jared have just put on a wig? Small consolation? It’s been 20 years since we saw Jordan Catalano so it’s kind of nice seeing him again.
And while we know Jared Leto makes his own decisions and may not be inclined to listen to us, in our dreams we’d love to see him go back to one of our favourite looks. It’s almost impossible to choose though. Help us out!
