Jared Leto fans had their hearts crushed Monday when the actor debuted a clean cut for his new role as the Joker in the upcoming Warner Bros. film, “Suicide Squad.”

The actor, who rocked long locks and a beard for what seemed like forever, teased the possibility of saying goodbye to the ‘do on Instagram this weekend.

“Going going… #?” Leto posted along with a picture of himself in all his bearded glory.

Monday the threat came true, when “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer tweeted a photo of a short-haired, clean shaven Leto.

The hashtag #RIPJaredLetosHair trended for a time on Twitter as users shared their fond memories of the actor’s auburn mane.

But just as many were impressed by how ridiculously good looking the clean-shaven Leto is now.
