A Relaxed Red Carpet for the Men of the Independent Spirit Awards

Looks like these guys followed the lead of their female counterparts on the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet last night with simple and relaxed looks for the event. Brad looks like he stepped right off the set of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” with those shades. I’m actually finding that the more I look at him, the more I like his look.

Lots of other actors are growing their hair out as well. Zach Braff is sprouting some more curly locks and Josh Hartnett still has that nasty ‘stache. Javier Bardem sure looks like he let loose. I think he manages to look even hotter in those jeans and tennis shoes and messed up hair.

And of course, Jason Bateman wins the award for best chest hair this year to go along with “Juno’s” Best Picture Award.
