Bradley Cooper, master manipulator, shaved his beard, and the world took notice. Specifically E!, who posted the above photo, wondering who that man was (“Bradley Cooper, Is That You?” they asked. “Actor Nearly Unrecognizable Without His Beard.”) I don’t think it’s quite that extreme, E!. You can still tell it’s Bradley Cooper, although it is quite a change. He ALMOST looks like Ryan Gosling.
So because he took such a leap, it’s time to ask you guys: is this new look a “hell, yes”, or a “God, no”? As far as male facial looks go, it’s world’s better than James Franco’s shaved head, which is terrifying on so many levels.
But I’m gonna vote “hell yes” on this one. You guys?
