We barely recognized "The Hangover 3" star Zach Galifianakis when he walked the red carpet without one important accessory: His beard!

The 43-year-old shaved off his shaggy friend in favour of a trimmed goatee and mustache which he proudly (defiantly?) displayed at the "The Hangover 3's" French premiere on Monday.

Whatever the reason, we have to admit that we like Zach's new Ron Swanson look but we're going to miss his old, unruly 'do.

To commemorate Galifianakis' beard, let's take a look at other male celebrities who have rocked facial hair:
