What's that on Jon Stewart's face?

What's that on Jon Stewart's face?

Brad Pitt’s beard seems to have found its way to Jon Stewart’s face – although it’s cleaned up quite nicely.

Yes, Jon Stewart has joined the ranks of late-night hosts who cultivate facial hair in their off-hours, as he revealed when “The Daily Show” returned last night.

“Some of you may be wondering right now, ‘Hey! What happened to your face?" Stewart said about the obvious change. "Why is Jon Stewart’s evil cousin hosting the show?”

After trying to pass off the new look as the result of a run-in with a tub of Fluff, Stewart finally admitted the real reason.

“The truth is," Stewart said, "I’m a Japanese snow monkey. I’ve been hiding it from people, and I can’t live that lie anymore.”

How long do you think he'll keep the look?

    Marshmallow probably came first into being as a medicinal substance, since the mucilaginous extracts comes from the root of the marshmallow plant, Althaea officinalis, which were used as a remedy for sore throats. Concoctions of other parts of the marshmallow plant had medical purposes as well.,..:*

    Oh no! Not yet another bewhiskered man! When I saw Jon's scuzzy looking goatee on the show, I said to my husband, "I find it hard to believe that very many women actually like to get up close to whiskers like that. I'd like to see a poll of how many women really like the scuzzy look." So...my husband forwarded me this article with comments. I guess I overestimated the taste and cleanliness of a lot of women. As for you, Jon, you were such a good looking man! It's a crime to ruin such a handsome face! And no, it was not funny that you came out looking like that! Did you quit brushing your teeth, too? You go shave it off, RIGHT NOW!!!

    His best friend, Steven Colbert is perfect as his side kick. I see a man who is so together that few people impress him besides his own talent,-– therefore his witty personality makes you laugh - spontaneously, it's almost a jolt when you actually feel as witty as he does, but – somehow his intelligence and art gets a few slingers in and you realize he is maybe the best dry witty man on TV, and intellectually makes you think -forget yourself, to creat yourself, readjust your ego, or while making light of the world- makes it it seems too hard to see into, even yourself- and never forgets to tell
    you where you came from. He gives us an unconditional feeling of being fine, and that everything will be fine, especially ourselves...because we are only human. This of course to me is very important in out world of entertainment. Thank you Mr. Jon Stewart. TV, news -real time- Cnn for not always expecting him to be funny, and yet, , I admire a man that can still remain as eloquent to the people without making us feel badly all the time about our bad news.. He is not a Howard Stern, he is a real genius of media, and I am not sure anyone is as good as he is. He never lets you really believe what is worst is really anything except what is in your minds.
    There , I've said my peace for now. Have good week everyone. I'll write again after the weekend or sooner.
    ( He's got a cool website forum, too. Colbert's is wy out there, maybe however these guys are the most fearless men and there must be a good reason they stay . I am still wondering about Steven's...oh well. Long story short, good night.
    Happy Birthday To President Obama too. ( I thought he was Aquarius....oh well.)

    The reason men grow facial hair as they get older is to cove sagging skin and double chins. Women are just jealous they can't have such an easy facial fix. But, the reason doesn't matter. The truth is it looks good on him. Keep it, John! Especially the gray. Real men do go gray.

    Contributes nothing to society? This guy is holding back ignorance with a flaming torch and you say he's contributing nothing? Jon deserves to be smug. He's smarter, cooler and wittier than 99% of the popualation - what do you want him to do, act like he's retarded?

    And what's up with Yanni? Is this a tribute to the worst infomercial artist of all-time (no offense to Zamfir), or is that your real name? In either case, quite unfortunate.

      I'm not certain that I've ever heard anything so patently absurd in all of my life.

      Jon Stewart, standup comedian, is "holding back ignorance with a flaming torch"? The Rhine River vis à vis ignorance in your world is the host of a half-hour comedy show? Not a prominent educator, not a great philosopher or statesman or spiritual leader or even an author – but a guy who tells jokes on TV? You realize that the Daily Show isn't real news, right? You're familiar with a cultural world beyond television, right? You're familiar with those thick, bound collections of printed paper called books, right?

      If you can, in all candor and seriousness, participate in the pretentious canonization of any entertainer as a paragon of social commentary and wisdom, then clearly this "flaming torch" you claim Stewart carries has burned a hole in your brain.

      I feel sorry for you. But I feel even sorrier for your mother.

    What happened to the state of journalism today? Even if it's an entertainment story – do at least a little bit of research... if you would have done this, you would have found out two things:
    (A) – He's growing the beard out for a reprisal of his role for a sequel to The Faculty (as Prof. Edward Furlong)
    and (B) – Before that screen capture was taken above, he jokingly dipped his chin into a jar of marshmallow fluff... hence, why it looks whiter than normal.

    Honestly my first impression was you have the face of Jesse James if he lost 30 or 40 pounds.

  104. Fluff

    The picture looks much worse than the actual beard. As part of the gag, he stuck his chin in a bottle of Fluff marshmellow goo. The white stuff stuck to his beard like glue and he was left with it for the remainder of the show. That's why all the white marshmellow is concentrated at the point of his chin.
    Having said that...I wasn't a fan of the look even before he coated it with Fluff.

    Hey, it does look a little strange-and if it is for real-so what. My hair began turning gray when I was 29 and people still give me grief about the gray-but as one the comments made above...I do have stories to tell and I earned every one of these gray hairs-not to mention the old gene thing. My Dad died when he was 41 and his hair was completely gray. Whatever, and oh yeah, Todd-learn to spell and/or make sentences that make sense, please.

      not sure what tasting good has to do with a goat being on someone's face, but it is still mildly amusing. and true... they do not look good on mens' faces.

      Jess, grey happens. Jon Stewart is, patently, not to young. Do you have some kind of existential horror over the simple fact that people do, in fact, age? He's 48. His beard and hair are greying. Why should he pretend to be younger than he is? There is nothing wrong with being the age he is, or twice that age.

    I agree with Amanda I like this look. I'm a fan of facial hair on men if it's neat and trimmed like this. And please – no "Just for Men" – that stuff looks so fake. Of course, he's cute without it, too. I met him once a long time ago when I was in college and I think he's just as handsome now as he was then.

      Exactly, this is a bad look for him. I thought his face looked dirty. It covers up some of facial expressions and it is his facial expressions that make him so funny. So beard = unfunny.

      Your just jealous because you are one of those people that try sooooooo hard to grow a goatee but it's patchy, grows longer it places where it shouldn't and isn't thick enough to make you look like anything other than a teenager. Don't worry you'll be a big boy soon with a goatee of your very own. Don't be a hater.

      There's nothing wrong with a man looking distinguished. Our culture puts too much emphasis on looking like a 20-something even when we're more like 50- or 60-something, and personally, I think it's wasted. Flaunt those gray hairs, people! It means you've survived and you've got stories to tell!
