He is one of the most beautiful actors in Hollywood.
But, Jared Leto, 49, was unrecognizable, with his dark locks replaced by a bald head and gray mustache, as he joined Lady Gaga, 35, to film scenes for House Of Gucci in Rome, Italy, Thursday.
The Panic Room actor had been transformed to look like the late fashion designer Paolo Gucci, with the help of dramatic makeup, prosthetics and wigs specialists.
Certainly not! Jared Leto, 49, was unrecognizable, with a bald head and gray mustache, as he joined Lady Gaga, 35, to film scenes for House Of Gucci in Rome, Italy on Thursday.
Jared was dressed in a brown plaid shirt paired with a pink shirt and a vibrant blue tie, with green loafers completing his costume for the film directed by Ridley Scott.
The baby-faced star looked much older and bald, with a gray mustache and long gray hair, and strikingly resembled Paolo Gucci.
The star was pictured chatting with Lady Gaga on set, with the musical icon dressed as Patrizia Reggiani in a purple dress.
Gaga increased her height with classic black stilettos and wore a fur scarf to keep warm while titillating a Gucci handbag.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about his role in the film, Jared made no attempt to hide his enthusiasm for working on the film.
He said: ‘The one and only that Ridley Scott is directing – one of my all-time favorite directors – with a cast that I’m blown away to be a part of.
“ There is Lady Gaga, or as I call her, Lady Guhgah – the Queen herself and just a great creative person and a great actress.
“Adam Driver is in the movie, again just a phenomenal actor. Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and so on.
“It’s the story of Gucci – which I didn’t even really know, and I’ve worked closely with Gucci for many years now. It’s wild.

Indeed, the story is breathtaking, Lady Gaga plays the “ black widow ” Patrizia Reggiani, opposite her on-screen husband Adam Driver, who plays Maurizio Gucci, heir to the famous Italian fashion empire. .
The film, which documents Reggiani’s sensational plot to assassinate her ex-husband, is based on the novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Tale of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed by author Sara Gay Forden.
Reggiani has been convicted of paying € 300,000 (£ 240,000) to a hitman to assassinate Gucci, 46, heir to the fashion empire.
Her husband had left her for another woman ten years earlier after telling her he was going on a short business trip, from which he never returned.
She was also reportedly furious that her ex-husband had started seeing other women and feared his daughters’ $ 170 million inheritance would be in danger if he remarried before he ordered the coup.
She also wanted more than the $ 650,000 offered to her in a divorce settlement, the court said.
The court heard how she ordered the murder of her husband after he offered her $ 650,000 as part of a divorce settlement.
She was originally sentenced to 29 years in 1998, which was reduced to 26 on appeal. She served 18 years – with her ferret Bambi as a companion for part of the time – before being released in October 2014.
Having Bambi by his side was a special privilege negotiated by his lawyers – but he was to suffer an unfortunate death when a fellow inmate accidentally sat on him.
Well known for her luxurious lifestyle, Reggiani once said, “ I’d rather cry in a Rolls than be happy on a bike ” and turned down the offer of one day in jail because that would have meant to do “ bondage ” work.
In 2017, a court ruled that Reggiani was entitled to receive £ 900,000 a year from her ex-husband’s fortune and she received a lump sum of £ 16million for her prison sentence.
Maurizio Gucci was the grandson of Guccio Gucci, founder of the fashion company made famous by its double G logo.
In the early 1990s, he was hit with problems and sold the label for $ 120 million, just two years before his death.
The new film is slated for release on November 24, 2021.
