    Have two of Hollywood's hottest faces taken a brutal beating?!

    So it seemed, after both Zac Efron and Jake Gyllenhaal stepped out with facial injuries this week in Los Angeles and New York, respectively, where paps snapped pics of the actors' typically flawless mugs, which were covered with cuts and bruises.

    But luckily, we can all breath a collective sigh of relief as the hunks are simply sporting some very convincing makeup while filming on the sets of their upcoming movies.

    Efron, 26, was clearly getting into character, appearing worse for wear and slightly subdued, as he filmed scenes for the Max Joseph-directed drama We Are Friends, which follows a young DJ (Efron) who is hoping to record his first hit.

    Likewise, Gyllenhaal was also photographed on the set of his forthcoming flick Southpaw on Tuesday in the Bronx.

    Despite the bruises on his face, the 33-year-old actor's beefed-up appearance simply can't be missed as he flaunts his bulging biceps in a basic gray tee.

    Unsurprisingly, Zac and Jake still manage to look insanely hot, even though the two appear as if they've just gone head-to-head in a violent brawl. 

    So the question remains: Who looks hotter all bruised and banged up?! Take our poll to weigh in!
