Jason Momoa Shaved His Beard And I’m Not Sure How I Feel About It

Facial hair or lack thereof can have a huge impact on a man’s appearance. If you’ve ever seen before and after shaving photos, you know the transformations can be pretty insane. This is probably why we get so incredibly attached to male celebrity beards, such as the one resting upon the glorious face of Jason Momoa. Well, it used to rest there. Now, the Game of Thrones star is completely shaven and tbh, I’m still not sure how to feel about it.

When we think of Jason Momoa AKA Khal Drogo AKA Aquaman, one of the first things that comes to mind is his glorious beard.

In addition to his chiseled physique and all around grizzly manliness, of course.

But what if I told you this beast of a man no longer had his signature facial hair?

*gasp*

The Game of Thrones actor recently released a YouTube video titled “Goodbye Drogo…I SHAVED!” in which he shaves off his entire beard while talking about his latest project to help preserve the planet.

Momoa discusses replacing plastic bottles with aluminum and other efforts we can take to live more “infinitely recyclable”—doing our part to save mother earth and whatnot.

While a noble initiative. Now let’s draw our attention back to the beard or lack thereof.

In any situation as dire as this one, I find it best to sort through my feelings in the form of a pro-con list. So, here goes.

Pros:

1. First and foremost, the obvious, he’s helping the planet.

Gorgeous and environmentally conscious, what more could you possibly need?

2. He looks younger, which is never a bad thing.

Flashback to his early onscreen years.

3. We can see his beautiful jawline.

Be still, my heart.

Cons:

1. I fell in love with him as Khal Drogo and it’s hard for me to imagine him as anything else.

*sniff*

2. As I mentioned before, the beard added that extra rugged touch.

Yes, sir.

3. Not necessarily a bad thing, but he looks like a completely different man.

So, there you have it—my personal insight on this whole beardless Drogo thing.

And here’s what other people had to say about the transformation:

Many were devastated.

While others felt he looks better without facial hair.

And some just love him regardless.

But I think we can all agree that he’s still one of the most beautiful beings to walk this planet. Not to mention, he’s trying to save it so that’s pretty cool too.
