'Going, Going... #Gone!' Jared Leto Chops Off Famous Hair!

Jared Leto presents on stage at the 87th Oscars February 22, 2015 in Hollywood, California.

It's a sad day for anyone who coveted Jared Leto's flowing locks. It's been revealed that the Oscar-winning actor and Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman has cut off his ombre hair 'do.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer broke the news on social media, on March 2, via an image of a scissor and Leto's famed ponytail.



Without revealing too much of what the new 'do looks like, an after shot was also shared on the director's Twitter account, as well as by Leto.





Leto is slated to play the Joker in the film focused on DC Comics supervillians.

"The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character -- that's what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right?" Leto told Billboard last month. "[He's] this beautiful disaster of a character -- what a big challenge."
