The 29-year-old actor rocked a bright blonde dye job, with lightened eyebrows to match, to the EPSYs in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and the Internet couldn't believe how different the Whiplash star looked from his last public appearance.
Some fans thought the new style suited him.

While others just seemed to have a deep-seated dislike for Teller as a person, regardless of his hair color (although they also didn’t like it).
Uhhhh @Miles_Teller dyed his hair blonde. If I didn't already hate him this sure would have!— Diana Olsen (@diana_kaylene) July 14, 2016

While this might have been the first time Teller has shown off his blonde locks in public, the change didn't just happen. In fact, the actor's girlfriend, model Keleigh Sperry, posted shared a PDA-filled selfie to Instagram three weeks ago, in which he's already rocking the light 'do.
It's unclear if his new hairstyle is for a role, or was just a personal choice, but either way it seems it's going to take a while for some of his fans (and his angry haters) to adjust to the change.
