Bradley Cooper, No Facial Hair

We're seeing a whole new side to Bradley Cooper—a clean-shaven one, that is!

On Wednesday, the actor revealed his freshly shaved face, shorn of one of his signature trademarks. The star stepped out in New York wearing a baseball cap, blue scarf, black vest and sweater.

Cooper was almost unrecognizable as he walked down the street, headphones intact. The Silver Linings Playbook actor was likely heading to the set of The Elephant Man, which opened Friday on Broadway.

In an interview with the Today show, Cooper said, "It was the reason why I wanted to become an actor, because of David Lynch's movie, and then I discovered it was a play, and I did it for my thesis in grad school."

Cooper will also be hitting the big screen with his new movie American Sniper out in January. The star plays a Navy SEAL who is known for having the highest number of sniper kills of any American. While Bradley's freshly bare face may take some getting used to (or at least remind us of how he looked when he was on Alias), his super buff body for his role in the film is something we're already welcoming!

While on set for the film, the American Hustle actor was caught wearing some super short shorts. The rest of the world didn't mind a peak at the hottie's bod, but Cooper admitted to E! News that he was a bit embarrassed of the shots.

"That was unfortunately our last day of filming and it was out in the open. We just got killed by the paparazzi all day long and it happened to be that day where we had to wear that outfit, getting hosed down. It was just the worst," he said.

Even beardless and in short shorts we still love you, Bradley!
