Robert Downey Jr. debuted a new look after shaving his head.
Fans were shocked as the actor, 57, showed off his new look at an A-list awards show with his wife Susan, 45, on Saturday night.
Pictured on the red carpet of the 13th Governors Awards in Los Angeles, Robert has completely shaved his head.
The Iron Man star, who normally has short, spiky hair, now looks remarkably different.
Dressed in a black dinner jacket, crisp white shirt, and a black tie, Robert threw a knowing look to the photographers.
He was pictured with his wife Susan, who wore a simple black maxi dress.
As photos from the event emerged, fans were shocked by Robert’s new look.
“Now why is he bald?” wrote one on social media.
“I genuinely didn’t recognise him for a whole minute,” posted another.
A third begged: “No, not RDJ shaving his head and going bald…”
Robert has shaved his head for a new role in HBO’s The Sympathizer.
He posted a video to Instagram shortly before Halloween that showed him getting his new haircut from his kids at home.
The Avengers star explained to Exton, 10, and Avri, eight: “I don’t want to have to wear a bald cap, so will you guys shave my head?”
The video saw the pair use a set of electric clippers to transform their famous dad.
“The things we do for our work… and our kids,” wrote Robert in the caption.
He first showed off his new look earlier this month at a special screening of Sr, which is a Netflix documentary about his late father.
Robert flaunted his new look on the red carpet wearing a blue patterned blazer and matching tinted glasses.
