The beard man goeth.
Rest in peace, you glorious, hairy beast that rested upon Chris Evans' face. You were with us through the good times and the bad times of the Avengers press tour, and we will never forget you.
The Avengers star's hiatus beard was truly a work of art, as important to his appearance as his finely tailored suit. But now that filming for Captain America: Civil Way is beginning and ol' Cappy is a clean-shaven kind of superhero, that beard had to go to the big barber shop in the sky.
"Dear beard, We had a good run but this is where I leave you," Evans wrote on his Twitter. "Thank you for braving the Boston winter with me. I miss you already #Cap3Begins"
And thank you, Chris Evans' beard, for making a seriously attractive man even more attractive.
Obviously this is an extremely emotional time for everyone, but we hope you all can find peace in the fact that you are not alone in mourning every little piece of hair that is now gone from that chiseled jawline. Twitter is organizing a prayer circle right now, kind of like when Zayn Malik left One Direction, except MUCH WORSE:
And then there were the people who were actually thankful that he shaved the beard, because they didn't like it. We call those people heathens, monsters and in need of a higher power.
So anyway. Yes, we are very sad to see the beard go. That is confirmed. However, the bright side is that those sexy hairs sacrificed themselves for a good cause: so Captain America 3 could start filming! We can't wait to see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers continue the chain of events that will eventually lead to Avengers: Infinity Wars. Play nice, you two!
Just kidding, feel free to fight each other and blow s--t up. It's the least you could do for those who had to say farewell to the beard.
