Why Jake Gyllenhaal—there you are! Or at least, there's your chin!
A day after stepping out but keeping his newly smooth visage mostly covered with his hand, the 33-year-old actor was spotted out in New York Monday without the increasingly bushy beard that took over his face this year while he was playing real-life expert climber Scott Fischer in the mountain-man movie Everest.
He wasn't exactly clean-shaven, and in fact was sporting some five-o'-clock shadow as he chewed on his earbud cord, but it was the most we've seen of that handsome mug in six months.
It's unclear when, exactly, he shaved, but Gyllenhaal had been rocking the beard and man bun as recently as last Thursday while going incognito in NYC's Meatpacking District in his camouflage-print jacket, jeans and a white T-shirt.
Gyllenhaal continued to win friends and influence people with his hirsute look: He was sitting courtside at the Brooklyn Nets game next to Jay Z and Beyoncé on May 10 and the beard had paired marvelously with his custom black and white Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci tux at the Met Costume Gala five days before the game.
Alyssa Miller must not mind his new look, either. The model and her possibly on-again beau were spotted together taking her dog for a walk earlier this month in Manhattan.
