Jared Leto bares his shaved eyebrows in Paris: cool or try hard?

Jared Leto

Last week, the world was astounded by the “other” blonde at Paris Fashion week. Jared Leto showed off his Karl Lagerfeld Jr. realness at the Balmain show. This was an in-between stage for his eventual Joker look. Now Karl’s Jr. (his new nickname) revealed the mysterious reason why he wore those glasses. He wasn’t trying to look cool — he was protecting us from the full reveal of his shaved eyebrows. Quick, prepare yourself!

This isn’t the first time Jared’s shaved his eyebrows for a role. He previously did so for Dallas Buyer’s Club, which made more sense. I don’t know why he’d need to shave his brows to play the Joker. Is he going to wear some neon green merkin brows? With Jared, anything is possible. He’ll go to any lengths for a role, but I appreciate that he won’t talk our ears off about his “craft.” Dude lets his work speak for itself.

Jared’s all over Paris. He attended the Lanvin and Balenciaga shows and spread his photobombing obsession. Here he is sneaking up behind Gigi Hadid at a Galaxy event. This is how one knows they’ve truly arrived — getting photobombed by Jared Leto.

    He’s now back on the douche list…

  2. Ginger says:

    He’s back to looking like his character from Fight Club.

      +1. I believe this is in prep for his character the Joker. He is an actor and musician so he is kind of off the spectrum of normal behavior.

  3. Cindy says:

    He scares me and I can’t put my finger on why.

    • ichsi says:

      It might have something to do with all the reports of his taste for suffocating underage girls entering your subconsciousness. He’s an a grade douchebag, one you should run from the second you see him. This look hopefully will help some people realise that.

    • Mika says:

      There are rumors going on about him raping his female fans.

  4. jinni says:

    How is having shaved eyebrows try hard when it is obviously for his job and not because he’s trying to come off as edgy? Besides it’s believed that he will be playing the version of the Joker that cut off and than stapled his own face back on. So maybe the make up department needed his face completely shaven to help come up with concepts for that look that would look good on film/realistic.

  5. Bridget says:

    He did a good job concealing his douchiness for his Oscar run.

  6. Lilacflowers says:

    That last picture, did he steal that coat from Blake Lively?

  7. 30winks says:

    He looks like a bleached out Zac Efron…and just as messed up on…my apologies to Zac.

  8. Mia4S says:

    Probably try hard. However considering he has to follow Heath Ledger’s universally-praised, iconic, and award-winning portrayal he NEEDS to try hard.

    • Erinn says:

      This. I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes right about now.

      • jinni says:

        Meh. They said the same thing about how Heath would never live up to Jack N’s Joker too. Sure Ledger’s death adds to the mystique around his version of The Joker, but I think Leto will deliver a unique version of The Joker that will stand up against the previous movie Jokers and be a great addition to the Joker mythos.

      • Bridget says:

        If Ledger hadn’t died I dont think his performance would have been legendary – it was just a bunch of quirks and tics and swallowing really loudly.

    I cannot bear Jared Leto, but I think he’s earned the right to be off the “try-hard” list. He’s been an authentic twat for years now.

  10. Lucybelle says:

    Man, he was so hot as Jordan Catalano. I had such a crush on him back in the day. Now, not so much. Creeeeeeeepy!

  11. EC says:

    I have to say, I’m pumped to see him with green hair – I think it’s going to look awesome. He is certainly doing the bleach blonde hair way better than Kim K, eyebrows or no eyebrows. And he is good and being visible when he wants to build anticipation for a role – his producers must be happy about that. Also, I want that turquoise and red jacket.

  12. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Are they shaved or just blonde? I see something up there. Are those drawn on?

  13. doofus says:

    did he only use some self tanner on the bottom half of his face in the header photo?

    because his beard area looks orange…the rest, not so much…

  14. Bea says:

    I wish he kept to himself during his process. I always love seeing such transformations on the big screen, this is ruining the magic for me!

    • jinni says:

      Well this is only the bare bone stage. It’s not like this is the final look. Plus you could always avoid stories about him and his pictures to minimize your exposure to his character transformation so that you will still be surprised by the end result.

    This man child is the exact opposite of sexy and charismatic.

    • lily says:

      I get what your saying with the man child thing. And I hate myself for saying this , I really do but, he is truly hot, sexy and charismatic. Take another look at the woman sitting beside him and take a look at the woman in the other pic. They look like they can barely contain themselves, hell, even Oprah looked like she was going to pee her pants by just being near him. Or maybe I’m just projecting….

  16. Nev says:

    All this Bowie Blond influence. So happening.

  17. Veronica says:

    He shaved them for a role, didn’t he? I mean, the guy always struck me as self-important, but I don’t think this was a sudden fashion decision.

  18. Christina says:

    He’s probably doing it for a role, so it’s alright.
