Ashton Kutcher ditches 'Jesus' look

Los Angeles - Ashton Kutcher has cut his hair because "Jesus wanted his look back".

The 34-year-old Two and a Half Men actor has ditched his long locks and shaggy beard and returned to his previously well-groomed style.

Asked about the image overhaul, he joked: "Jesus wanted (his look) back so I gave it to him."

On a more serious note, Ashton - whose six-year marriage to Demi Moore collapsed last November amid allegations he cheated - explains he grew his hair for his role as heartbroken millionaire Walden Schmidt in the Chuck Lorre series.

'Pressured to change'

But under orders from the boss, he went back to his clean-shaven, short-haired look as part of a new storyline.

Chuck told People Magazine: "We wanted to tell a story about being in a relationship and being pressured to change.

"Walden pushed back and said, 'You can't change me. This is who I am.' But once she stopped trying he got a haircut and changed."

However, Ashton admits he is missing his wild hairstyle.

He joked: "I actually was enjoying looking homeless," before co-star John Cryer interjected: "People just gave him quarters."
