Everybody Breathe: There’s a Silver Lining to Jared Leto Chopping Off His Amazing Hair

Yes, Jared Leto cut his hair today. But stop mourning the loss of those beautiful, long-flowing locks because there are upsides (we promise).

Known for taking on drastic physical transformations in his films, this cut is only part of becoming The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad. Director David Ayer made it real with this Twitter post.

Here’s the thing. Leto already told Billboard that he’s bulking up big time for the role. (YAS.) And, if you remember correctly, he’s still seriously hot with short hair.

Haircut. #2015

Um, hi Jared.

So stop your crying and realize he is going to be one buff, sexy Joker, even if his locks are short. When it comes to hair, the actor can do no wrong (check out the gallery for proof). In fact, we’re actually really excited to see his new ’do.
