Breaking news: Jason Momoa has shaved off his famous beard.
Earlier today, the Aquaman star took to Instagram to debut his fresh-faced aesthetic after seven years of sporting the facial hair.
But it was all in the name of the planet, as Momoa got rid of his beard to raise awareness of the need to use recyclable aluminum cans for water instead of plastic bottles.
“I’m SHAVING this beast off, It’s time to make a change,” the Game of Thrones actor wrote. “A change for the better… for my kids, your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans, our land. Join me on this journey. Let’s make the switch to infinitely recyclable aluminum.”
The video is an advertisement for Ball Corporation — a company which produces recycled aluminum cans.
Yet despite making a conscious effort to help the environment, a number of Momoa fans across the globe were left “distraught” by his new look:
