Jared Leto Shaves His Beard to Prep for 'Morbius' Filming: Watch


Every actor has his/her personal means of stepping into a personality's headspace in preparation for a movie shoot. Some do analysis, get to know the particular person they're enjoying, put a rock of their shoe or achieve 45 kilos. Jared Leto? He prefers public shaving. The actor shared a video of his bushy beard elimination on Thursday (Nov. 15), explaining that he's making ready for a job within the Spider-verse as Morbius, the Living Vampire.

"And so it begins... #MORBIUS," Leto wrote within the clip, through which he meticulously removes all traces of facial hair (or does he?) and ends with a blood-soaked Morbius picture.  

Leto -- who performed a demented Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad -- will step into the character of Michael Morbius, the devious biologist who appeared in each the Amazing Spider-Man comics and the 1990s animated collection. No launch date has been introduced but for the movie.
